Except as set forth in this Privacy Notice or when specifically agreed to by you, we will not disclose personal information we gather from you to third parties unless MPA is required to share this information to complete your request or for legitimate business purposes. MPA shares personal information in the following circumstances:
Third-Party Service Providers. We may share your information with vendors or third parties who deliver or provide goods and services or otherwise act on behalf of or at the direction of MPA. These third parties may include, for example, our third-party technology providers, including our mobile application vendor, training providers and partners, product-fulfillment companies, and third-party event hosts, hotels for conference registrants, sponsors, co-sponsors and exhibitors. These third-party service providers will only have access to the information needed to perform these limited functions on our behalf. For more information you may contact MPA directly at Madeline@MadelineParisi.org.
Response to Subpoenas, Court Orders, Government Requests or to Protect Rights and to Comply with Our Policies. To the extent permitted by law, we will disclose your information to government authorities or third parties if: (a) required to do so by law or regulation, or in response to a subpoena or court order or any other enforceable governmental request or order; (b) we believe in our sole discretion that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect against fraud, to protect the property or other rights of us or other users, third parties or the public at large; or (c) we believe that you have abused the Sites by using them to attack other systems or to gain unauthorized access to any other system, to engage in spamming or otherwise to violate applicable laws. You should be aware that, following disclosure to any third party, your information may be accessible by others to the extent permitted or required by applicable law.
Aggregate Information. We may share your information with affiliated or unaffiliated third parties on an anonymous, aggregate basis. While this information will not identify you personally, in some instances these third parties may be able to combine this aggregate information with other data they have about you, or that they receive from third parties, in a manner that allows them to identify you personally.
Where we do share your personal data with third parties, MPA takes steps to ensure that they use appropriate safeguards to protect your personal data.
Legal Basis for the Processing of Personal Information from EEA Residents
If you reside within the European Economic Area (EEA), our processing of your personal information will be legitimized as follows:
(i) Whenever we require your consent for the processing of your personal information such processing will be justified pursuant to Article 6(1) lit. (a) of the General Data Protection Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (“GDPR”). This article in the GDPR describes when processing can be done lawfully.
(ii) If the processing of your personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract between you and MPA or for taking any pre-contractual steps upon your request, such processing will be based on GDPR Article 6(1) lit. (b).”). If this data is not processed, MPA will not be able to execute the contract with you.
(iii) Where the processing is necessary for us to comply with a legal obligation, we will process your information on basis of GDPR Article 6(1) lit. (c), for example complying in the fields of employment law.
(iv) And, where the processing is necessary for the purposes of MPA’s legitimate interests, such processing will be made in accordance with GDPR Article 6(1) lit. (f), for example to detect fraud.
(v) You may also receive personalized advertising where you indicate to MPA specific interests by requesting information about a product or service or by indicating your marketing preferences in the Preference Center (access to which is provided at the bottom of this page), however, you may also receive general
Transferring Personal Data from the EU to the US:
MPA has its headquarters in the United States. Information we collect from you will be processed in the United States. The United States has not sought nor received a finding of “adequacy” from the European Union under Article 45 of the GDPR). A finding of “adequacy” in short means that the European Commission has decided that this country outside the EEA ensures an adequate level of data protection. MPA relies on derogations as set forth in Article 49 of the GDPR as the United States has no adequacy decision and no other safeguards under the GDPR are in place (for example binding corporate rules on the transfer outside the EEA). In particular, MPA collects and transfers to the U.S. personal data only: with your explicit consent; to perform a contract with you; in a manner that does not outweigh your rights and freedoms. If this data is not processed and transferred, MPA will not be able to execute the contract with you or you will not have access to any or all of the benefits and features associated with your transaction. MPA endeavors to apply suitable safeguards to protect the privacy and security of your personal data and to use it only consistent with your relationship with MPA and the practices described in this Privacy Notice. MPA also minimizes the risk to your rights and freedoms by not collecting or storing sensitive information about you.
If you wish to confirm that MPA is processing your personal data, or to have access to the personal data MPA may have about you, please contact us at Madeline@MadelineParisi.org.
