We may process data relating to website visitors and website visitors who choose to get in touch with us by using the “Contact Us” tool available on our website. We can only process your personal information if we have a proper reason for doing so, e.g.:

▪  to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations;

▪  for the performance of our contract with you or to take steps at your request before entering into a contract;

▪  for our legitimate interests or those of a third party; or

▪  where you have given consent such as in the case of specific projects where your data is shared for reporting purposes (for example with the European Commission) and for targeted communications.

A legitimate interest is when we have a business or commercial reason to use your information, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests.


When you leave comments on our website, the information entered in the comment form, your IP address as well as a website user agent’s string is collected in order for spam activities to be more easily detected.

An anonymous string generated out of your e-mail address – aka “hash” – may be transferred to the Gravatar service to check if you are using it. The Gravatar privacy policy is available here:

Once your comment has been approved, your profile image will be visible to the public in relation to your comment.

The personal data entered by you is collected and stored for internal use only. By registering on our website, the IP address — assigned by the Internet Service Provider (ISP) and used by you — date, and time of registration are also stored.

The storage of this data takes place so as to prevent the misuse of our services, and may be necessary in order to make it possible to investigate committed offenses. The data collected is not passed on to third parties unless there is a statutory obligation to pass on the data, or if the transfer serves the aim of criminal prosecution.

Registering your information, with the voluntary indication of personal data, is intended to enable us to offer you contents or services that may only be offered to registered users due to the nature of the matter in question.

We shall, at any time, provide you with information upon request to as to what personal data is stored about you. In addition, we shall correct or erase personal data at your request or indication, insofar as there are no statutory storage obligations.

We will not retain your personal data for longer than necessary for the purposes set out in this notice.

If you leave a comment, your comment and the relevant metadata are stored permanently. This enables us to recognise and automatically approve any future comments rather than allocate them to the moderation queue.

Keeping Your Personal Data Secure

We have appropriate security measures to prevent personal information from being accidentally lost, used or accessed unlawfully. We limit access to your personal information to our employees who have a genuine business need to access it. Those processing your information will do so only in an authorised manner and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.

  • Police services (in connection with an investigation or detection of crime).

  • Pursuant to a court order.
