C. Is provision of the data mandatory or optional?

Provision of the personal data is optional. Failure to provide the Data marked “required” will make it impossible to submit your enquiry, offer of collaboration or project proposal through the Website. The provision of any other data is entirely voluntary and at your discretion.

D. To whom will the data be disclosed or broadcast?

The Data you provide will be processed in accordance with the Regulation and in any case in such a way as to guarantee their security and confidentiality and to prevent them either being disseminated or used without due authorization or being tampered with or destroyed. The Data will be processed on paper and/or remotely with the aid of electronic or other computerized means, by the Data Controller in person and/or by other persons delegated by the Data Controller, in ways strictly related to the purposes stated above. Such persons will be acting as external Data Processors as defined in Art. 28 of the Regulation.

The Data Controller will also process your Data in person using its own technological infrastructure and/or making use of the support and the technological infrastructure of external service providers which it will have designated as Data Processors.

E. Where will the data be kept, and for how long?

Your Data will be kept on servers located in the European Union and available to the Data Controller.

Whenever technical and/or operational requirements make it necessary to have recourse to persons located outside the European Union, or to transfer some of the Data to cloud-based technical systems or services located outside the European Union, their processing will be governed by the provisions of Chapter V of the Regulation and authorized on the basis of specific decisions by the European Union. All necessary precautions will accordingly be taken so as to guarantee the fullest protection of the personal data by basing any such transfer on: a) the European Commission’s decisions on the adequacy of the non-EU jurisdiction(s) in question; b) adequate safeguards provided by the third-party recipient as defined in Art. 46 of the Regulation; c) the adoption of binding corporate rules.

The Data will be kept only for as long as necessary to deal with your request, offer or proposal, and throughout any collaboration thereafter between you and Condé Nast and/or the agency’s talents, unless Condé Nast needs (exceptionally) to keep the Data in order to defend its rights in connection with any dispute which was already in existence when the enquiry was made, or unless a public authority has ordered otherwise.
