The new General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation EU 2017/679, or simply “GDPR”) sets very important standards for the protection of your personal data, and we are committed to implement them.
WHO IS PROCESSING YOUR DATA?
The European Cooperation Centre is a first of its kind skill-sharing community that was founded in 2018. It operates a nonpartisan organization registered in in Belgium (Brussels), committed to promote civic engagement by experimenting new forms of participatory democracy and non profit, evidence-based advocacy in the public interest in Europe and beyond.
The processing operations are decided by the Management Board of the European Cooperation Centre and carried out by the European Cooperation Centre volunteers.
HOW DO YOU EXERCISE YOUR RIGHTS?
When possible, we implemented the principle of privacy by design, so you should always be able to exercise your rights without our intervention, by inscribing our newsletters. However, should you need assistance or have any doubt you can always get in touch with us at firstname.lastname@example.org
WHICH PROCESSING OPERATIONS WE CARRY OUT?
The European Cooperation Centre runs three type of processing operations. We do not sell, transfer or use your data in any other way. Your data is solely accessed by European Cooperation Centre staff.
Our core activity is to make skilled Europeans available on a pro-bono or low bono basis to non-profit organisations or civil society in general. To achieve this goal, we created an interactive database, allowing skilled Europeans to provide us their contact details, skills… and ultimately become one of the experts we can rely upon.
This data is given on a voluntary basis, and we keep it for three years.
To promote our trainings and to allow civil society organisations to have access to the same resources and expertise as corporations, we run a number of educational activities such as Masterclasses, Workshops and similar.
To enroll in these activity and to make the best out of them, we require some basic information such as contact details and working position or academic background.
When you enroll in these activities, your data is also used to inform you about upcoming events and to send you our newsletter, but you can unsubscribe at any time.
NETWORKING AND COMMUNICATION
We carry out surveys to map the needs of civil society informations and operate our matchmaking mechanism. We also take part in many events, where we are more than happy to gather the contact details of interested citizens and experts who wish to stay updated about our activities through our newsletter.
We have open positions for fellows wishing to join our ranks.
In this case we will ask you for your CV and motivation letter. To allow some flexibility in the recruitment process, we will keep it for a year.
WHICH TOOLS DO WE USE TO PROCESS YOUR DATA?
We use very simple, yet efficient tools to process your data. In particular:
- CiviCRM, to manage the mailing lists for the newsletter and communications;
- Google Drive, to process the applications and manage the surveys;
- WordPress, to manage our website and publish articles.
