The impact of GDPR on your events

On May 25th 2018, the EU General Data Protection Regulation came into force. This regulation strengthens data protection laws applicable to EU companies and more gnereally when data from European citizens is collected. As a European company, idloom is eager to comply with this regulation and to support their customers in the changes that it involves in the management of events. 

It is important to note that clients from all around the world will actually benefit from the improved protection. It is necessary to demonstrate why you collected specific data, but there is no change to make in the type of information you ask registrations as long as it is striclty necessary for the organisation. (E.g. name, invoice address, company name, etc.) If data does serve another purpose other than the sole organisation of the event, you have to inform the subsribers about it. Although your own marketing does not requrie any specific consent, if this information is used for marketing actions of third parties you are required to explain how the data will be treated.


When setting up your event, idloom proposes a rather short model of privacy policy to validate when registering for your events.
