Personal data will be kept for the time necessary to organise and carry out the activities to be carried out by the PONT Group Association and for a maximum of 5 years from the date of completion of the activities. With the exception of the beneficiaries of transport, accommodation and meals, these personal data will be kept for 10 years, in accordance with the Regulation of the Ministry of Public Finance (MFP) No. 2634/2015 on the archiving and keeping of accounting records and other financial accounting documents, as subsequently amended and supplemented.

Biometric data will be kept for the time necessary to organise and carry out research activities and for a maximum of 5 years from the date of completion of the events during which the data was collected.

If you have opted to receive communications by newsletter, we will keep your data for 2 years after your last interaction with the communications sent to you in order to provide this service.

If you decide at any time that you no longer wish to receive the newsletter and withdraw your consent, we will no longer process your personal data for this purpose.

As a rule, we will delete your personal data when it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, or when you withdraw your consent where the processing of your data is based on consent. Exceptions to this rule are cases where the processing of personal data is required by law or where we are entitled to continue such processing. We may also retain your personal data for a longer period than set out above, but only in situations where immediate deletion would require overwriting our back-up and disaster recovery systems.



As a general rule, we do not disclose or transfer your personal information to third parties. Exceptionally, in situations where disclosure and transfer are necessary or where we are required by law, we will inform you as soon as possible, unless applicable law prohibits or prevents such disclosure.

Communication of the processed data to other private entities (collaborators, suppliers, co-organisers, etc.) involved in the research activities we carry out, as well as to public entities (ISU, DSV, police, courts, public prosecutor’s office, city hall, local council, county council, ministries, etc.) involved in the organisation of the events we carry out, or to public entities with control and supervision powers over the activities carried out and which may require access under the law. With regard to specific personal data, the PONT Group will endeavour to analyse objectively, on a case-by-case basis, whether and to what extent it is really necessary to disclose such data. To the extent that it appears that such disclosure is not necessary or that it would cause any disadvantage or inconvenience to the person who has provided it, the PONT Group may refuse to disclose it, unless we are required by law to make such personal data available.

If we disclose or transfer your personal data to third parties, we will do so in accordance with the law and with measures taken to protect and secure it.

We may use data processors (e.g. IT service providers and suppliers, database or contact management, accounting, event organisers, etc.) to process personal data. We have entered into personal data processing agreements with all of these processors to ensure that they also fulfil their legal obligations to process personal data, provide an adequate level of protection and security of personal data and comply with applicable laws.



The manner in which the data is processed is manual and/or automated, depending on the specific nature of the processing of each type of personal data highlighted above.
