This site is owned by the European Communication Research and Education Association (ECREA). We have created this statement to disclose our information gathering and dissemination practices for www.ecrea.eu and demonstrate our firm commitment to privacy.
ECREA values your privacy and respects Belgian law of December 8, 1992 on “Privacy Protection in relation to the Processing of Personal Data” as modified by law of December 11, 1998 implementing Directive 95/46/EC.
Like many websites, this site actively collects information from its visitors both by asking you specific questions and by permitting you to communicate directly with us via e-mail, forums, and/or feedback forms. Some of the information that you submit may be personally identifiable information (that is, information that can be uniquely identified with you, such as your full name, and e-mail address).
Some areas of this site may require you to submit personally identifiable information in order for you to benefit from the specified features. You will be informed what information is required and what information is optional.
As you navigate through a website, certain anonymous information can be passively collected (that is, gathered without your actively providing the information) using various technologies, such as cookies, internet tags or web beacons, and navigational data collection (log files, server logs, clickstream). Your Internet browser automatically transmits to this site some of this anonymous information, such as the URL of the website you just came from and the Internet Protocol (IP) address and the browser version your computer is currently using.
This site may also collect anonymous information from your computer through cookies and Internet tags or web beacons, but this is to compile and analyse statistics and trends and improve the site for your use. Browser type, IP address, access time, and files accessed are collected in log files. ECREA uses this information to analyse traffic on the site and does not share this information with advertisers or third-parties.
Except as otherwise stated, we may use information collected via this site to improve the content of our site, to customise the site to your preferences, to communicate information to you (if you have requested it), for our research purposes, and for any other purpose specified. In addition, we may make full use of all information acquired through this site that is not in personally identifiable form.
Members and institutional coordinators are responsible for keeping personally identifiable information provided via this site accurate, current, and complete. Members and institutional coordinators can access and correct this information in their member profiles. Personally identifiable information of members and their member profiles are deleted upon resignation or failure to renew membership.
This site takes reasonable steps to protect personally identifiable information as you transmit it to our site and to protect such information from loss, misuse, and unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration, or destruction. You should keep in mind that no Internet transmission is ever completely secure or error-free. In particular, e-mail sent to or from this site may not be secure, and you should therefore take special care in deciding what information you send to us via e-mail. Moreover, where you use passwords, or other special access features on this site, it is your responsibility to safeguard them.
The site collects personally identifiable information during online registration. The information collected includes name, institution, PhD status, work and private address (including street, city, postal code and country), phone, e-mail, areas of academic interest, links to personal profiles at third-party websites. We may use member contact information from the forms to send newsletters, notifications concerning governance of the association, and announcements concerning events organised by ECREA or its entities. ECREA may share some parts of this information with third-party contractors and sub-contractors for purposes of event organisation (only events organised by ECREA or its entities) or website maintenance. ECREA will not sell or rent your email or other personal information to any organisation. Neither will we contact you for any other topic than topics related to our association’s mission and goals, as defined in ECREA Statutes.
Maintaining the integrity of data collected at www.ecrea.eu is of utmost important to ECREA. Personally identifiable information is stored behind password protection.
