Purpose of Data Collection

The ITI (International Team for Implantology) handles all personal data according to Swiss law. To register for the congress, it is necessary to collect, save and process your personal data. Information gathered with the congress registration will only be used for the purposes of planning and conducting the congress and will only be passed on to third parties that are directly involved with the running of the congress and only if the organizational procedure makes it necessary (e.g. hotel). The ITI will provide you with information of other similar events unless you withhold your consent when registering.


News/Media

The ITI plans to carry out filming and photography at the congress for use in its educational, news or promotional material in print, electronic or other media, including the ITI website. All such material is the property of the ITI. By participating in the congress, you grant the ITI the right to use these images/videos for such purposes. Only officially contracted ITI congress vendors and journalists with ITI-approved press credentials will be permitted to take photographs and film material. Anyone making a recording (using personal video/audio equipment, cell phones, digital/film cameras, tape recorders or similar) without prior permission from the ITI or without proper credentials will be asked to stop using these devices immediately - the ITI does not take any liability.


Insurance

Registration fees do not include insurance of any kind. It is recommended that you take out an insurance policy of your choice when registering for the congress and booking your journey. The policy should include:

  • loss of fees/deposit resulting from cancellation of congress participation or cancellation of the congress itself
  • loss of international/domestic airfares through cancellation for any reason
  • failure to utilize tours or pre-booked arrangements due to airline delays, strikes, force majeure or any other reason
  • medical expenses (including sickness and accident cover)
  • loss or damage to personal property
  • additional expenses and repatriation should travel arrangements need to be altered

 

The ITI does not take any liability for participants failing to arrange their own insurance in their country of origin.

The ITI reserves the right to delete, modify or alter items in the program or to delete, modify or alter any aspect of congress scheduling and delivery at its sole discretion and without notice. No liability will be accepted by the ITI for any loss or inconvenience caused to any party following such changes.
