Please note these important terms regarding your MWC 2020 Badge:
Exhibitors, sponsors, partners or other third parties participating at MWC Barcelona (the “Event”) may wish to scan your badge to facilitate networking and business relationships at the Event or to contact you after the Event. The GSMA uses two lead management service providers to provide badge scanning services to exhibitors, sponsors, partners or other third parties who purchase this service.
Your NFC encoded attendee badge holds secure data related to you that you provided during the registration process, including your First Name, Last Name, Company, Job title, City, Country, Email, Cell Phone Number, Company Industry Type, Your Area of Responsibility, Job Function and Your Areas of Interest.
By allowing an exhibitor, sponsor, partner, or other third party to scan your badge you are explicitly consenting to that party collecting and using the personal data contained in your badge.
You are fully in control of your data and only exhibitors, sponsors, partners, or other third parties that you expressly authorise to scan your badge will receive your personal data. If you visit a stand or speak with an exhibitor, sponsor, partner, or other third party but do not allow your badge to be scanned, your personal data will not be disclosed. The lead gathering devices have a short range (NFC) contactless smartcard reader and software with a secured encrypted key. This requires the exhibitor, sponsor, partner, or other third party to bring the reader within 2cm of your badge to scan and collect your data.
At the moment you allow your badge to be scanned you engage in a direct relationship with that exhibitor, sponsor, partner, or other third party, each of which has their own policies and practices for handling your personal. If you wish to withdraw consent or to exercise any data protection rights, please communicate this directly with the exhibitor, sponsor, partner, or other third party at the event or thereafter.
