  2. of access to personal data;

  3. to rectify or erase personal data (right to be forgotten);

  4. to restrict processing;

   6. Women in AI and Data Processors

6.1 We will engage certain event, ticketing and surveying service providers (including Eventbrite, Mailchimp, Typeform) to perform certain services on our behalf which may involve the collection and processing of personal data.
