The European Union is attached to the respect of private life.
The policy on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by the institutions and bodies of the EU is based on Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2018 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by the institutions, bodies, offices, and agencies of the Union and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Regulation (EC) No 45/2001 and Decision No 1247/2002 / EC.
This general policy applies to all the websites of the institutions of the European Union within the “europa.eu” domain. Although it is possible to browse most websites without providing any personal information, sometimes this type of information is necessary in order to obtain the desired online services. Websites that require such information treat them in strict compliance with the provisions of the above-mentioned regulation and provide information relating to the use of your data in their specific privacy statement.
In this regard:
The websites of the EU institutions, within the domain ‘europa.eu’, provide links to third party websites. In order to use the content of these websites on our websites, you may have to agree first on the special conditions of these third-party sites. These include their cookie policies, which are beyond our control.
An online service on EUROPA is a service or resource accessible on the Internet intended to improve communication between citizens and businesses, on the one hand, and the European institutions, on the other.
EUROPA offers, or will offer, three types of online services:
Information services which enable citizens, the media, businesses, and administrations, in particular, to access information; interactive communication services that allow better contact with citizens, businesses, civil society, and public bodies, to facilitate policy consultations and feedback; services providing access to all basic forms of transactions with the EU, such as public procurement, financial operations, recruitment, registration for events and acquisition of documents.
Information contained in a specific privacy statement
A specific privacy statement provides information on the use of your data by answering the following questions:
What personal information is collected, for what purposes, and by what technical means does the EU collect personal information to achieve a specific purpose?
Who is your personal data disclosed to?
How can you access your personal data, verify its accuracy and, if necessary, correct it?
How long is your data kept?
What security measures are taken to prevent your information from being misused or unauthorized access?
Who to contact in case of a question or complaint?
Europa Analytics is the service of the European Commission which analyzes and evaluates the effectiveness of the “europa.eu” site managed by the European Commission on behalf of all EU institutions and bodies.
You are free to refuse to use this service, either by means of the cookie banner displayed at the top of the first page you visit or by going to the Europa Analytics page.
EU institutions and bodies other than the European Commission (such as the European Parliament) may use their own system of analysis. See their respective legal opinions for more information.
Choosing not to use this service does not affect navigation on Europa’s sites.
Contact the sites on Europa
On many Europa web pages, there is a “Contact” button, which activates your e-mail software and invites you to send your question or comments to a specific box.
When you send us an email, your personal data is only saved to the extent necessary to respond to you. If the team in charge of the mailbox cannot give you an answer, they will forward your message to another service. An email is then sent to you to inform you of the name of this other service.
If you have any questions about the treatment of your emails or your personal data, please include it in your message.
Personal data is stored on a computer of the processor responsible for processing, who has the obligation to guarantee the protection and confidentiality of data required by Regulation (EU) 2018/1725.
