1. Who is responsible for data processing?

The Council of Europe (CoE) is the “data controller” with respect to processing of personal data in relation to the participants’ registration for the 17th Council of Europe Conference of Ministers Responsible for Sport (“the Conference”), which means it has the decision-making power concerning the data processing.

Ultra Turizm ve Seyahat Acentesi (Ultra Tourism and Travel Agency) is the “data processor”, which means it processes personal data on behalf of the Council of Europe.

2. What data do we process and for what purpose?

We process personal data that we receive either from you yourself or from the person you have authorised to transmit such data to us (e.g. your assistant) insofar as they are necessary for us to ensure your participation in the Conference.

We process the types of personal data listed below for the following purposes:

a) Online registration form

To proceed with the registration for the Conference you need to create an online account. For this you will have to create a login with your e-mail address and a password.

For the duration of your session, we store login information in your browser’s local storage. It is deleted upon the expiry of your session.

As part of the Conference documentation, we draw up lists of all participants and make them available to the other participants for networking and reporting purposes, although it only contains the data mentioned in the bullets below. A list of the heads of delegation will be attached as an appendix to the Secretary General’s Report on the Conference. Once the Ministers’ Deputies will have taken note of the report, it will be published on the internet pages of the CoE (including Committee of Ministers’ documents and Sport website). Such lists of participants contain:

  • Title, first name and surname
