We inform users of the purpose of the data processing, and the length of time the data will be held, for each means by which data is collected.

This data is managed with the sole and exclusive purpose of guaranteeing the provision, security and availability of the services we offer, and with the guarantee that these technology companies will apply the measures and act in good practice in terms of information security.
Your personal data will not be transferred outside the European Economic Area, or to countries that do not have a similar level of compliance, without your prior express authorisation.
On the other hand, MedCities’ activities may involve communicating data to third parties, especially in terms of managing conferences or presentations that you have registered for, carried out by MedCities members or associated parties. You will be informed of this during the registration process for each activity.
