The RSIC2018 Planning Committee appreciates the importance of keeping personal information private and protected for its stakeholders.

What information does RSIC2018 collect and why?

We ask schools to submit details relating to the delegates they intend to bring to the Round Square International Conference 2018 in Canada. We require personal data such as (but not limited to) name, contact details, dates of birth in order to register a delegate. We require sensitive data such as (but not limited to) gender, dietary requirements, medical information to ensure that our delegates have a safe and pleasant stay while at the conference.

We ask delegates to submit a profile photo during registration. This helps conference organisers easily identify delegates in case of an emergency.
