Furthermore, we inform you that any additional personal data that you provide us with on the occasion of your attending any given event will be collected exclusively for reasons of private security and access control. Iberdrola will use these data only for this purpose and only temporarily, and will in no case use them for another purpose or disclose them to third parties, except for owners of the premises where the event is held and companies entrusted with their security. Thus we inform you that these additional data will not be stored, and after the event they will be deleted or destroyed.

What is the legal basis for processing your data?

All the purposes indicated above are legitimate, and the legal basis for the processing is the consent you grant on the occasion of your inscription to attend a given event and regarding the rest, the legitimate interest of Iberdrola in the creation of a network of contacts for the development and maintenance of public relations and/or networking with its stakeholder groups, as well as for the exchange of opinions on matters relating to its business project and social responsibility strategy, with a view to contributing to the development of the communities in which it conducts its business.

Who will your data be revealed to?

Your data will be communicated to other companies in the Iberdrola group for purposes of internal administration or, in the case of certain events, publication on the websites of other Iberdrola group companies, security and organisation of events, as well as Public Administration bodies for organising events in which you take part, based on the consent you have granted and Iberdrola's legitimate interests. Such companies of the Iberdrola group are those listed on the company website Annual Financial Report [PDF].

We inform you that the communication of your data to Iberdrola group companies based outside the European Union constitutes an international transfer to a third country, which involves certain risks to your privacy due to the absence of an adequacy finding and adequate guarantees.

You also have the right of objection to or limitation of data processing and to require data portability. You also have the right to revoke your consent at any time.

To exercise these rights you can present your requests at the addresses referred to above.
