Consent can always be revoked and withdrawn at any time. However, if consent is withdrawn, it will not affect the lawfulness of the processing carried out prior to withdrawal.

The consents obtained for the mentioned purposes are independent, so one of them may be revoked without affecting the others.

Furthermore, this data will be processed until the student completes their training period and, subsequently, for the period expressly provided by current education legislation, for the purposes of accrediting the training provided and issued certificates.

Events, courses, and talks: Data will be processed from the time the user submits their request until the event, course, or talk takes place, and for information requests and communication, until the User withdraws consent, which can be granted as many times as desired. In each communication, the user will find a free and accessible procedure to manage it.

Newsletters: Data will be processed from the time the User gives their consent until it is withdrawn, which can be granted as many times as desired. In each communication, the User will find a free and accessible procedure to manage it.
