In the case of activities and events organized by third parties, the organizer may acquire and process the data of the user who takes part in the event for their own purposes and on the basis of an autonomous information; the user is then invited to check with the organizer (and any suppliers that the organizer uses) the means and purposes of the processing of his data related to participation in the event.

- binding business norms.
