In the exercise of its activity, ABOWIN promotes and organizes job fairs directly, but also licenses the platform for organizing job fairs to customers, allowing the use of a subsite. Within the scope of ABOWIN’s commercial relations with its customers, contracts are signed that allow and legitimize that each event is managed by ABOWIN’s client with the support of ABOWIN. The gathering of personal information from Users of events promoted by ABOWIN customers is intended to these customers and not to ABOWIN. Each of these events is the sole responsibility of the ABOWIN customer – the event organizer – that must explain the purpose of using ABOWIN technology.

ABOWIN recommends that event organizers fully respect the legislation regarding the processing of personal data. If any non-compliance is detected, ABOWIN reserves the right to resolve the contract celebrated with the event organizer. This disclaimer is not intended to limit ABOWIN’s responsibility in an illegal way, nor to exclude its liability when this is not possible.
