Collection and Transfer of Information
Bar Specialists will require some personal information about you when you register using any of our meeting registration sites or manual documents such as hard-copy registration forms. Typically this information includes, but is not restricted to, your name, email address, contact numbers, address and contact information for someone in case of an emergency. In addition, your meeting logistics choices will be solicited and we may also require some payment, charge back or cost centre information.
Bar Specialists gathers this information to allow the company to process your registration. The relevant information is then used by Bar Specialists, our agents and sub-contractors to communicate with you on any matter relating to your registration.
Bar Specialists will not pass your details to anyone else outside of Bar Specialists without your permission except as set out above. Bar Specialists operates globally and the information you submit may be transferred outside of the European Economic Area.
Sensitive personal information including, but not limited to, government identifications numbers (e.g. national insurance or social security numbers) or financial identification (e.g. credit card numbers) will only ever be transferred securely.
