Conferences i/o and GDPR

Conferences i/o is committed to compliance with data protection legislation, including the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (which goes into effect on May 25, 2018).

Under GDPR, both Conferences i/o and its customers need a legal basis to store and process identifying information about event attendees. Though a legitimate interest often fulfills this legal basis, we’ve gone a step further and today we are pleased to announce the addition of a Consent Module.

When active, the Consent Module will prompt attendees for their explicit opt-in consent before they can start using Conferences i/o.

After they’ve given consent, attendees can manage the data they’ve shared with Conferences i/o, or even withdraw consent completely. We’ve tried to make it as painless as possible for both attendees and customers.

You can find more information, including a list of Conferences i/o’s third-party subprocessors, in the Conferences i/o GDPR Help Center.
