      SHARING YOUR PERSONAL DATA

      Your information will be shared internally for the purpose of managing our service to you. This includes all staff members of LFF.

      LFF shares your personal data externally as necessary to render any service you have requested or authorised. For instance:

      • To service providers: we may need to share limited information with our service providers who assist us in providing services to you, who help us to prepare and send you our communications and/or process your responses. However, we will not allow these organisations to use your data for their own purposes and will take care to ensure that they keep your data secure. In fact, LFF’s policy is to maintain contracts with all third parties with whom we disclose/transfer personal information that restrict their access, use and disclosure of personal data. Service providers must, in fact, abide by our data privacy and security requirements.
      • To business sponsors/partners/co-organisers: we may share your personal data with our sponsors and partners and co-organisers when it comes to the management and organisation of events and conferences.
      • Luxembourg delegations: we may disclose/transfer your data to Luxembourg delegations when it comes to the management and organisation of events and conferences abroad.
      • Safety, security and compliance with law: we will access, transfer, disclose and preserve personal data to comply with applicable law and for reasons relating to national security. This may involve the sharing of your data with law enforcement, government agencies and other organisations.
      • Consent: we may share your data in other ways and for new purposes if you have asked us to do so and have consented to such sharing.

      Those recipients may be located both in and outside the European Union. Your personal data will not be transferred to any country outside the European Union which does not ensure an adequate level of protection unless you gave us prior authorisation to do so or specific measures (adequate security measures such as model clauses) have been taken by us in order to ensure that the requirements of the applicable data protection law have been fulfilled.

      • Right to rectification: should the data we hold, collect and process about you be inaccurate or incomplete, you have the right to update such data at any time by contacting us.

      LFF will only retain your personal data:

      • For as long as it is necessary for the purpose or purposes for which it was intended;

      HOW WE PROTECT YOUR DATA

      LFF takes the security of your data seriously. LFF acknowledges your trust and is committed to protecting the data you provide to us. We maintain appropriate organisational, physical and technical security measures (including with respect to personnel, facilities, hardware and software, storage and networks, access controls, monitoring and logging, vulnerability and breach detection, incident response, encryption of personal data) to protect against unauthorised or accidental access, loss, alteration, disclosure or destruction of personal data.

      NOTIFICATION OF PERSONAL DATA BREACH
