Some of these services may require interested parties (participants) to register on the partner’s platform and in such cases, the data processing and communication is managed by the partner as an independent data controller; in such cases, the interested party is invited to carefully read the privacy information provided by the partner. The participants can request the Organized to share the list of partners and sponsors at any time.

Given the public nature and purpose of the event, the participant also acknowledges and accepts that data related to their image, results or competition position in real time, may be made publicly accessible by dissemination by the Organizer, sponsors and service partners of the event and /or communicated to third parties for reporting, documentation and advertising purposes.
