Data transfer and communication

a) General provisions

WMH Project is a global group with offices in Europe and Asia.

As a result, your personal data may be transferred to and outside Switzerland, including to countries where data protection laws may differ and be less stringent than those applied in your country of residence.

You hereby expressly agree and authorise WMH Project to transfer and disclose your data as follows:


1) Transfers within the WMH Project group: Transfers are made within WMH Project and its subsidiaries in support of its activities and/or services.


2) Transfers to third parties: WMH Project solicits the assistance of third parties in connection with travel services, organising meetings and events and/or other services it provides to its clients (such as emergency online booking services, hotel booking services, ground transportation services, air ticket issuance services, badge providers) and will share personal data with these third parties in certain circumstances for the purposes of its mission and objectives.

WMH Project may also transfer personal data to third parties at the request of its Clients. These may include sponsors and exhibitors or other third parties for the purpose of data consolidation or monitoring services for the purpose of generating statistics.

During events or congresses, sponsors or exhibitors may scan the badges of participants or delegates, with their consent.

Therefore, the collection and use of the personal data thus created is governed by the privacy policy of each sponsor or exhibitor. WMH Project may transfer your data to third parties for promotional and marketing purposes as set out in point 3e) above.

WMH Project may also transfer your data to a third party in connection with any reorganisation, merger, sale, common interest, assignment, transfer or other disposal of all or part of its business, assets or inventories (including in the context of bankruptcy proceedings or similar proceedings). Prior to a data transfer, third parties (with the exception of travel providers and authorised transfers as is the case within the EU) are asked to sign a data transfer agreement by which they undertake to comply with applicable data protection legislation.


3) Regulatory transfers: WMH Project may be legally required to transfer data to governments and regulatory and/or supervisory authorities.


b) Electronic data transfer

If you visit any of the websites belonging to WMH Project, your data will be transmitted through a public open network. It can therefore be transmitted without limits of borders. It is therefore at risk of being intercepted and read by third parties, which would allow them to infer an existing or future business relationship between yourself and WMH Project.


In addition, the information you transmit or authorise WMH Project to transmit electronically, in particular by e-mail, SMS, contact form, etc. is generally not encrypted and, as such, it is neither confidential nor secure. And, even in the case of encrypted transmission, the sender and recipient are never encrypted. Third parties can therefore infer an existing or future business relationship between yourself and WMH Project.

In case of disclosure of personal information to WMH Project, we may transfer your personal data to countries where data protection laws may differ and be less stringent than those applied in your country of residence, as already indicated above. In particular, it may be transferred to the United States. You should therefore know that the government authorities of these countries (and in particular the US authorities) may have access to your personal data.



9. Security and organisational measures

To ensure the security of your data on its websites and systems, WMH Project has put in place appropriate technical, contractual, administrative, physical and organisational measures to protect your personal data from loss, destruction, unauthorised access, and any accidental or unlawful disclosure and alteration. These measures are continuously developed in line with technological advances and are regularly reviewed to ensure compliance with all applicable privacy laws. However, we cannot guarantee, and do not guarantee, the security of your personal data and therefore reject all liability in this respect.

Only authorised WMH Project personnel, third-party company personnel (that is, service providers) and authorised personnel of our Clients (who have contractually agreed to maintain the security of all information) have access to your personal data. All WMH Project employees who have access to your personal data are required to comply with the confidentiality rules applicable to staff, and all third-party employees who have access to your personal data have signed confidentiality agreements. In addition, data transfer agreements have been signed with third-party companies that have access to your personal data in order to protect its security.



10. Your rights

In accordance with applicable data protection laws and regulations, you have a right of access, a right to rectification of your data, a right to restrict the processing of your data and to object to such processing, as well as the right to data portability to the extent provided. In addition, you have the right to refer the matter to the supervisory authority.


Under certain conditions, you also have the right to block and have the personal data held by WMH Project erased, unless it is retained for legitimate purposes or for legal purposes. For further information, please contact the Data Protection Officer at the above-mentioned email address.


In case of questions or problems with the data processing carried out by WMH Project, you should contact the Data Protection Officer at privacy@wmhproject.fr.

You may contact the Data Protection Officer at the address indicated above to exercise your right of objection to no longer receive the electronic marketing messages sent by WMH Project and to request that we do not share your personal data with unaffiliated third parties for the purposes of their marketing objectives.
