We value the protection and confidentiality of your personal data.  Brain Innovation Days organisers will use your personal data only for the purpose for which you have given permission and will not sell, rent, loan, trade or lease any personal information collected online or offline.

The Brain Innovation Days organisers will not share your personal information with others, and all information is to be kept confidential unless explicit consent to share is given by the user.

However, to avoid people receiving multiple invitations for the same co-organised event, organisers reserve the right to share your first name, last name and employer with the partner organisation(s) to avoid duplication of the final invitation lists. We will not, however, share your phone number, email, address or any contact information.
