Additional information provided to you as part of the service

By registering, participants are agreeing to receive information specific to the event they will attend. For example, the service will use your email address to send a confirmation letter stating your personal data. Participants may also receive information on programme changes and/or security procedures.

After the event, the personal data may also be used to express gratitude to each participant for participating in the event. The EU Institutions, and external contractors on their behalf, may use your personal data to invite you to future EUI conferences.

Technical information

Participants will register on the web site www.euconf.eu . For some events, a login and password is provided in the previously sent Event invitation and is needed for registration.

Participants may choose to register:

  • by creating an account that will allow users to access and update their data (e.g. the sessions they choose to attend or their personal details) and to register again for future events without re-entering their full details; or
  • by registering—as a “visitor”—for each event.

Fields in the registration page are protected against intrusive codes or any attempts to access/modify/delete the database.

A secured administrative page gives restricted access to the data collected under the control of an appointed administrator.

3. Who has access to the information provided and to whom is it disclosed?

Personal data will be accessible to the EU Institutions (a.o. the European Commission) and to contractual staff working in the organisation of this event on behalf of the  EU Institutions. No third party will receive the information submitted.

A list of attendees will be distributed among participants, including their name and organisation. Supplementary contact details are subject to the participants’ approval (in the registration form). Participants can refuse to share their contact details (beyond name and organization).

Participants can raise questions or comments by sending an email to secratariat@euconf.eu

4. How can you verify, modify or delete your information?

After registration, users that have created a personal account can access and modify their data at any time.

Those who have registered as visitors will not have direct access to their stored data; corrections must be requested by e-mail to secratariat@euconf.eu. If registrants find a mistake in their registration form, it is possible to register again without giving prior notice to the organiser. The previous data will be deleted from the database.

To delete all or part of their data registrants must send a request to secratariat@euconf.eu

5. How long do we keep your data?

The database containing your personal data will be retained for a maximum of two years or as long as related events are being organised by the EU Institutions. You can request the immediate removal of your personal data from our list at any time, as explained above.

The EU Institutions, or a contractor chosen to do this on their behalf, will keep your personal data in a safe - virus-protected - electronic storage for future use.

6. Authorisation to use pictures and be filmed
