General Data Protection Regulation
Starting 25 May 2018, GDPR will replace the Data Protection Directive, which has been in effect across the European Union (EU) for the past 20 years. The goal of GDPR is the enforcement of a standardized data protection law for the entire EU.
The FARNET Support Unit is in compliance with EU Data Protection Law.
How and why do we collect your data?
We are collecting your data on an opt-in/opt-out basis. Data collected remains in our database for information purposes. The Support Unit is informing you about the European Fisheries Areas Network’s activity through the FARNET Flash newsletter. You also receive alerts on updates on our website. You might also be contacted in the framework of surveys and invitations to FARNET events.
Where is the data stored?
The data is stored on a server hosted within Europe. Your data will never be shared with any third party. Should this server be hacked, the FARNET Support Unit guarantees an immediate communication of the potential risks and the solutions implemented.
How long is the date stored?
Your data will be safely kept in the FARNET database for the entire duration of the FARNET program.
You can ask for revision or complete deletion at any moment by sending an email to the person responsible for GDPR within the FARNET Support Unit: Sabine Kariger (firstname.lastname@example.org).
