Privacy Policy and Personal Data Management

Last Updated on: May 25, 2018


This policy describes advanced business events’ (abe, “we” or “us”) practices regarding the collection, use and disclosure of your personal data.


What data do we collect about you?

We collect any data you provide by filling in forms on our website. This include information provided when placing an order, subscribing to our services, posting marketing materials, and requesting any other services. We may also ask for your personal data when you complete customer surveys or contact us with any queries.

Social media platforms

In compliance with the law and where permissible, we may use certain limited personal information about you, such as your email address, to hash it and to share it with social media platforms, such as Facebook or Google, to generate leads, drive traffic to our websites or otherwise promote our products and services or the Airbnb Platform. These processing activities are based on our legitimate interest in undertaking marketing activities to offer you products or services that may be of your interest.

The social media platforms with which we may share your personal data are not controlled or supervised by abe. Therefore, any questions regarding how your social media platform service provider processes your personal data should be directed to such provider.


Why do we use your personal data?

We collect and use your data for the following reasons:

  • to process and fulfill your orders, or deliver the services you signed up for
  • to manage your account
  • to communicate with you, either directly or through one of our partners, for:
    • marketing
    • participation in surveys
    • promotional purposes

via emails, notifications, or other messages, consistent with any permissions you may have given us

  • to communicate with you for abe service-related purposes
  • to answer queries
  • for other legitimate business purposes as explained in the Privacy Policy


How does abe protect your personal data?

We are committed to protect our customers/users’ personal data. We implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to help protect the security of your personal data. However we cannot possibly guarantee absolute security. That is why we store your data in our secured CRM database as long as necessary in order to manage your account. We have implemented retention policies to guard against unauthorized access and unnecessary retention of personal data in our systems.

How does abe share or transfer your personal data?

We may disclose your personal data to third parties as follows:

  • to contractors who provide services to us and help us deliver best-in-class services to you
  • to comply with any legal obligations, or in order to enforce our terms of use and other agreements
  • to protect our rights, property, and the safety of our visitors and customers
  • to prevent or detect fraud, including fraudulent payments and fraudulent use of abe services


Profiles, Listings, and other Public Information.

The abe’s one-to-one meeting platforms let you publish information, including personal information, which is visible to people who have registered to the same events as you.


Your rights

The new European Union law, called the General Data Protection Regulation or "GDPR" gives certain rights to individuals in relation to their personal data. Accordingly, we have implemented additional transparency and access controls in our privacy settings to help users take advantage of those rights.

These rights are as follows:

  • Right to access

You have the right to be informed of and request access to the personal data we process about you.

  • Right to be forgotten

You have the right to request that we erase your personal data, or cease the dissemination of your data.

  • Data portability

You have the right to receive a copy of your personal data in an electronic format and the right to transmit that data to another party’s service.

  • Right to update your personal data

You have the right to request that we amend or update your data where it is inaccurate and incomplete.

  • Right to restrict the use of your personal data

You have the right to request that we temporarily or permanently stop processing all or some of your personal data.

  • Right to object the use of your personal data

You have the right to object to us processing your personal data where we no longer have a legitimate or legal need to process it.

  • Right to object to direct marketing

You have the right to object to your personal data being processed for direct marketing purposes.

  • Right to lodge complaints

You have the right to lodge complaints about the data processing activities carried out by abe before the competent data protection authorities

If you have further questions in relation to your rights and our compliance to the EU GDPR, please contact our DPO (Data Protection Officer) at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..


Changes to our Privacy Policy

abe reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time in accordance with this provision. If we make changes to this Privacy Policy, we will post the revised Privacy Policy on the abe website, and any other abe group’s websites, and update the “Last Updated” date at the top of this Privacy Policy. We will also provide you with notice of the modification by email at least thirty (30) days before the date they become effective. If you disagree with the revised Privacy Policy, you may request that we erase any information we may have already collected about you, unless we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for us to keep your data in store. If you do not make such request before the date the revised Privacy Policy becomes effective, your continued access to or use of our services will be subject to the revised Privacy Policy.


Other websites

Our websites may contain links directing you to our partners’ websites, advertisers and affiliates. If you follow a link to any of these websites, please note that you will be subject to their own privacy policies and that we do not carry any responsibility or liability for these policies. Please check these policies before you submit any personal data to these websites.
