Scanning & Customer Data onsite
We understand that following GDPR there is anxiety over hosting potential customer and client data.
Your ability to host and contact the data of those you scan onsite using the Scanners / Apps through UBM / N200 is covered by the below UBM badge statement, which all visitors must agree to on their registration form, and is repeated on their visitor badges. By being scanned by you, they are giving their act of consent – it is imperative, however, that your team do not floor-walk etc scanning visitors (this has long-since been banned, but occasionally some exhibitors have gone rogue!) and you are only scanning in areas that it is clear that the visitor is being scanned by you, the exhibitor, i.e. your exhibition stand or your sponsored area.
Badge policy that the data you scan has consented to
I understand that by choosing to allow my badge to be scanned by an exhibitor or sponsor, I am providing the exhibitor or sponsor with my personal data. I consent to this personal data being used by the exhibitor or sponsor for the purpose of contacting me in the future about their products or services. I also understand and agree that my personal data may be held and used by the organiser of this event - UBM (UK) Ltd, and any third party hosting provider acting on its behalf, in order to run the event and for analysing visitor traffic with a view to improving the event experience for visitors and others. I understand and agree that the organiser may transfer my personal data outside of the European Economic Area for these purposes and I consent to such transfer of my personal data
