What Information is being collected? The Conference Organisers gather personal data about you on this website, which you provide for the purposes of submitting a contribution for review or registering to attend CMBI 2019. Personal data collected includes your name, organisation, position, research topics, title, email address, postal address and telephone number, and similar details about your co-authors. We also collect payment information if registering for CBMI2019 through the Conftool site. We will also record any consents you provide to us and the withdrawal or partial withdrawal or restriction of consents provided. Where you choose to provide us with a research paper we process this also for the purposes of reviewing the paper, selecting papers for the CBMI 2019 conference proceedings. Should your paper be accepted, we will request a final version of your paper and pass it onto the publishers (along with the minimal required personal information), who will contact you to arrange practical issues related to the paper publication process. Should any of the ancillary events require paper submission and review, then a similar process will apply.

How is it collected? All personal data is provided by you through the ConfTool submission system which handles submission, reviewing, final version upload, conference scheduling and registration fee payment.

How will it be used? All registrations for CBMI2019 are processed through the ConfTool registration system on our behalf. ConfTool integrates with the RealEx payments gateway.

This information is used solely as is reasonably required for the purposes of administration of the CBMI2019 conference. As stated above, for accepted submissions, a minimum set of this data will be sent to the publishers who will contact you separately to organise the publication process. The conference organisers will also use your name, organisation and paper title to generate the conference schedule, which will be published in printed and online form. For some papers (e.g. best paper awards) similar details will be published in the conference banquet or similar.

How long will it be retained? Data will be kept for no longer than is necessary for the primary purpose for which it was obtained. Following the ending of the CBMI 2019 conference and ancillary events, all data in the ConfTool system will be deleted, except for a minimal historical set of data used to calculate conference ranking in the future. Content published on the conference website, such as the conference schedule, will be retained online as a historical archive of the scientific content of CBMI 2019. If you wish to have your data deleted from the conference website, please let the data controller (see below) know.

Who will the data be share with? In certain circumstances, such as payment processing, publishing of accepted submissions, or on request of Fáilte Ireland (the Irish Tourist Agency who sponsor the event), it may be necessary to provide limited details to suppliers in connection with attendance at the event, and subject to contractual agreements and compliance with the Irish Data Protection Acts 1988 to 2018. In such circumstances, the information made available will be the minimum necessary and will be supplied strictly on condition it is only used for that purpose.
