In addition, we may be required to process your personal data for other purposes, as described in our General Privacy Notice for Business Partners below. For example, we may be required to process your personal data to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations, such as complying with pharmacovigilance laws or disclosing transfers of value publicly (where you have provided us with your consent).
During the Event, we may film and take photographs of the audience. If you do not wish to be filmed or photographed as part of the audience, please inform your Novartis spokesperson before the event. Where appropriate, we will ask for your permission to use videos or photos that focus on you as an individual.
