Essential Technical Cookies

These cookies are necessary for the site to function properly. They enable efficient navigation of the pages and memorize your access credentials (to keep them active while you are browsing the site). Without these cookies, the website would be unable to provide the services for which you access the site.

Third-party Cookies

Some third-party cookies (some of which may also profile users) are also installed through the International CAE Conference and Exhibition website. These are cookies that:

Monitor Site Visits

Cookie Data Processing Method

Data processing is carried out with automated tools by the cookie owners. No data is disseminated or communicated.

The Provision of Personal Information (Data)

Except for the technical cookies absolutely necessary for normal browsing, the decision to provide personal information is left up to you, the user.

Purposes of Data Processing

In order to participate in the online event, you must register on the platform. We inform you that the provision of the data requested in the registration form is optional, but a refusal to provide the information requested in the fields marked with an asterisk makes it impossible to register on the platform, to have a user profile and therefore to participate in or use the services offered.

1. Purposes related to participation in the event and use of the services offered:

the personal data provided is processed by EnginSoft in order to allow the person concerned to participate in the International CAE Conference and Exhibition and to fulfil other related obligations. These include the creation of a profile, the recognition of the person, and data collection for system functionality. After the event, EnginSoft may ask the participants to complete a satisfaction survey, in which they can express their opinion on various aspects of the event. This data will be processed to understand the participant’s degree of interest and appreciation in order to improve the services offered. Furthermore, in the three months after the event, participants will continue to be allowed to access and view the content.
The data provided shall only be disclosed to parties specifically appointed by EnginSoft and its technological partners (Coderblock), exclusively for technical purposes.

2. Purposes related to communication and marketing by the data controller (EnginSoft),

which may include, for example, sending information and promotional material, statistical analysis for marketing purposes, invitations to seminars, courses, webinars, information or promotional events. Data provided may only be used for these purposes with the prior consent of the person concerned.

3. Purposes related to marketing and communication by third parties,

which include, for example, sending information and promotional material, statistical analysis for marketing purposes, invitations to seminars, courses, webinars, information or promotional events. In this case, the personal data provided may be disclosed to third parties that actively participate in the events or stands in which the person concerned participates.
