In order to provide you with the full range of BSIDESLONDON services, we sometimes need to collect information about you, and where you are sponsoring an event or participating in an event we will need to collect significant personal data to facilitate your involvement.
When you participate in, access or sign up to any of BSIDESLONDON’s services, events, activities or online content (such as newsletters, competitions, live chats, message boards, votes), or register for an BSIDESLONDON event we may receive personal information about you.
This can consist of information such as your name, email address, t-shirt sizes, food preferences, telephone and mobile number, depending on the activity.
By submitting your details, you enable BSIDESLONDON to provide you with the services, events, activities or online content you select.
As far as we are aware, we don’t collect or receive any personal data from Security BSides Global organisation.
BSIDESLONDON will use your personal information for a number of purposes including the following:
BSIDESLONDON may contact you:
We will keep your information confidential except where disclosure is required or permitted by law (for example to government bodies and law enforcement agencies) or as described in section 7 below.
We will only use your information within BSIDESLONDON.
Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to our site; any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
If you post or send offensive, inappropriate or objectionable content anywhere on or to BSIDESLONDON websites or otherwise engage in any disruptive behaviour on any BSIDESLONDON service, BSIDESLONDON may use your personal information to stop such behaviour.
Where BSIDESLONDON reasonably believes that you are or may be in breach of any applicable laws (e.g. because content you have posted may be defamatory), BSIDESLONDON may use your personal information to inform relevant third parties such as your employer, Internet provider or law enforcement agencies about the content and your behaviour.
If you are aged 18 or under, please get your parent/guardian's permission before you provide any personal information to BSIDESLONDON. Users without this consent are not allowed to provide us with personal information.
We will hold your personal information on our systems for as long as is necessary for the relevant service, event or activity, or as long as is set out in any relevant contract you agreed with BSIDESLONDON, or according to BSIDESLONDON's retention schedule. If you cancel your registration your account is deleted and a flag goes against any remaining personal information which stays on the system for up to a period of one year for administration purposes before being deleted.
If you register for a service, event or activity we will retain your details until all obligations under the contract have been discharged and for a minimum of four months following that date for administration purposes before being deleted during a period of up to one year.
Where you contribute material to BSIDESLONDON we will generally only keep your content for as long as is reasonably required for the purpose(s) for which it was submitted. For example, we will only keep copies of entries to an event for the duration of the event. However other information (e.g. posts to blogs or other websites) are likely to have a longer, or even permanent, duration.
