However, no personal data identifying the User is collected through these savings. This information is kept for statistical and improvement purposes only.

4.            PURPOSES OF PROCESSING

4.1.         GENERAL PURPOSES

Without prejudice to what has been specified in point 3.2. concerning the automatically transmitted data, the Website collects, save and processes the personal data of its Users in particular for the following purposes:

  • to establish, carry out and conduct the contractual relationship with the User;
  • to provide the Service;
  • to incorporate users’ personal data into one or more automated files;
  • to analyze, adapt and improve the content of the Website;
  • to allow the User to receive messages and manage his account from different devices (computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.);
  • to detect and / or prevent fraud or similar activities of an illegal nature;
  • to facilitate the provision and use of the Website and improve the Services offered by EUROMOT as well as the experience of the Users;
  • Fulfill requests, for example applications for membership, registration for events, meetings and conferences, requests for information material, etc.;
  • for any marketing actions offered by EUROMOT;
  • to Subscribers to the Newsletter;
  • to inform them about the evolutions of the Website and its functionalities; and
  • for any other purpose for which the User has expressly consented.

4.2.         COMMUNICATION TO THIRD PARTIES

EUROMOT considers personal data as confidential information. It shall not communicate them to third parties under conditions other than those specified in the Charter or under the conditions in which it is required by law, including the competent authorities who request it.

EUROMOT may however transmit to third parties the personal data of its Users insofar as this information is necessary for the execution of a service to its Users (for example, the subscription of a User to an event or meeting organized by a third party). In such a case, the User confirms to have read and accepted the privacy policy of this third party.

The disclosure of such information to the aforementioned third parties shall in all circumstances be limited to what is strictly necessary or required by the applicable regulations.

4.3.         TRANSFER TO A COUNTRY NOT A MEMBER OF THE EUROPEAN ECONOMIC AREA

EUROMOT does normally not transfer data to a country which is not a member of the European Economic Area (EEA) unless it provides an adequate level of protection within the meaning of the law of 8 December 1992 on the protection of privacy, or within the limits permitted by the same law, for example by ensuring the protection of data by appropriate contractual provisions.

There are however two exceptions:

  1. EUROMOT sometimes needs to provide a third party with personal data of a User in order to subscribe this User to meetings or events organized by this third party. It is possible that this meeting or event is located outside the EEA and that hence this third party is also vested outside the EEA. In this scenario it is possible that personal data of a User will be transferred and stored outside the EEA by said third party;
  2. The User hereby formally agrees with a transfer of his personal data outside the EEA when he/she subscribes to meetings or events organized outside the EEA or when such meeting or event is organized by an organization vested outside the EEA.
  3. EUROMOT uses Microsoft’s cloud services (Office 365) in order to store personal data of its Users. It is hence possible, but not certain, that a User’s personal data will be stored on a server outside the EEA. The EU data protection authorities have found in the past that Microsoft’s enterprise cloud contracts, including Office 365, meet the high standards of EU privacy law;
  4. Nonetheless, the User hereby formally agrees with the use by EUROMOT of Microsoft’s cloud services for the storage of his/her personal data and accepts that in this context his/her personal data may be transferred and stored outside the EEA.

4.4.         DIRECT MARKETING

Personal data will not be used for direct marketing purposes for products or services other than those to which the User has already subscribed, unless the User has explicitly consented thereto by ticking the boxes provided for this purpose (“opt-in”).

When the User has given his consent for the use of these information for direct marketing purposes, the User retains the right to oppose such use at any time, upon request and free of charge. To do so, the User must unsubscribe with the corresponding link in each newsletter by ticking the box of the Website provided for this purpose on each User account or to send his unambiguous request to the address Following: info@euromot.eu. The User shall in all cases be responsible for the veracity of the data provided and shall inform EUROMOT of any amendments to the data.

5.            SECURITY

5.1.         EUROMOT has taken the adequate measures to ensure that the servers hosting the processed personal data prevent, to the extent possible:

  • the processing, access or unauthorized modification of these data;
  • inadequate use or disclosure of such data; and
  • the unlawful destruction or accidental loss of such data.

5.2.         In this respect, EUROMOT employees who have access to these data are subject to a strict confidentiality obligation. EUROMOT cannot, however, be Held liable for any misappropriation of these data by a third party in spite of the adopted security measures.

5.3.         The Users undertake not to commit any acts which may be contrary to the present Charter, the ToU or, generally, the law. Offenses against the confidentiality, integrity and availability of computer systems and saved data, processed or transmitted by such systems, or the attempt to commit any of these offenses, shall be punished by imprisonment for three months to five years and a fine of twenty-six euros to two hundred thousand euros or one of these penalties only.

6.              CONSERVATION PERIOD
