Privacy Statement

Privacy statement 

EAPS takes data protection very seriously and we make sure that it complies with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

EAPS collects some descriptive data about its members through the EAPS membership application form. We use this data to communicate directly with our members as well as to better provide benefits and services to them. Some information is also made available to other EAPS members in the Membership directory. When joining as a member or creating an account in our database for events registrations or paper submissions, EAPS will always use your personal data in accordance with the current data protection legislation..

Apart from basic contact information, which is required, members can choose which information they wish to provide. Members can visit the EAPS website and identify what information is made available to other members. They can also choose not to appear in the Membership directory and indicate their communication preferences.

If they so wish, former members may opt to have all their personal information deleted from the membership database using a“forget me” button. Note that once this option is chosen, no records of a membership history will remain, nor can be restored!

EAPS does not make any membership information available to third parties.

The EAPS website does not track, collect or distribute personal information about visitors. We may, however, regularly compile aggregate statistics that show the number of visitors to our website, the requests we receive for particular information on the website, and the Internet service providers (ISPs) that those requests come from. These aggregated statistics are used by EAPS to improve the website in an on-going effort to provide better information and services to the members and the public.

EAPS only uses bank and credit card information to process payments authorized by its members. Bank and credit card information is collected online through a secured payment system which provides a secure transaction site for all payments. EAPS does not receive or store any bank or credit card information on its website or servers.
