Exhibitors, Sponsors & Partners at MWC Barcelona may wish to scan your badge so they can contact you with more information. The GSMA uses 2 lead management service providers to provide badge scanning services to Exhibitors & Partners who purchase this service. By allowing an Exhibitor or Partner to scan your badge you are consenting to provide them with your contact information and thereafter you may be contacted by the Exhibitor or Partner.
The contact information contained in your NFC encoded badge is limited to the following information you provide at registration – 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.
You are fully in control of your data and only Exhibitors / Partners that you expressly authorise to scan your badge will receive your contact information. If you visit a stand or speak with an Exhibitor or Partner but do not allow your badge to be scanned, your contact information will not be disclosed. The lead gathering devices used by Exhibitors & Partners have a short range (NFC) contactless smartcard reader and software with a secured encrypted key which requires the Exhibitor / Partner 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 the Exhibitor or Partner. Each Exhibitor / Partner will have their own policies and practices for handling your contact information. If you do not wish the Exhibitor / Partner to contact you, or wish to exercise your rights of access, deletion, rectification or portability, please communicate this directly with the Exhibitor / Partner at the event or thereafter.
