To ensure the best possible experience at future Platform.sh conferences and events, we may ask you, with your explicit consent, to voluntarily provide us with any dietary restrictions and disability accommodations you may require.
This new change accounts for the accommodations described above.
Now, the new version states:
“We do not explicitly collect any special categories of personal data or sensitive personal information through our standard sites and services. However, we may collect special categories of personal data or sensitive personal information if you have signed up to attend a conference hosted by Platform.sh and have explicitly consented to the processing of your data regarding dietary restrictions or disability accommodations.”
So what does giving your consent look like in regards to attending Platform.sh events?
Basically, during the event signup, you will simply agree to provide your health data if you require an accommodation. Or not! If you have no such requirements, then there’s nothing to worry about.
Of course, there’s nothing to worry about if you do need accommodation, either. Your information will stay private and secure, and GDPR-compliant.
And if, in the future, you happen to change your mind, then you can revoke your consent at any time via email. Afterwards, we will delete your sensitive data from our storage. It’s all pretty snappy.
And please stay tuned for more exciting updates in the future! 🚀
