Privacy policy

This policy sets out the basis on which we will process any personal data we collect from you through this website. We keep your personal information safe and it is protected by appropriate technical and organisational measures. We only use your data for the purpose of this campaign and will not sell your data on to any third party. We will pass it on only to the European Commission in the framework of the public consultation (see below). 

What data is collected and why?

On this website, we are asking you to join our campaign by participating in the European Commission’s public consultation. In order to participate in this consultation, you need to provide certain personal data (name, first name, email address, country, language, time of participation and your choice of email subscription), and only this data will be collected. Your data is therefore collected and further processed based on your consent.

How is your data used?

Your data, and the responses to the consultation will be collected in a MySQL database managed by Codevision (Austria) and then transferred to and managed by the European Commission. It will not be shared further or made public, the participating organisations will only process your data in view of the consultation and may update you on the result of the campaign. By participating in the campaign and agreeing with this privacy policy, you allow the European Commission to publish your response anonymously. By participating in the Online Consultation, you also agree to our privacy policy.
