The information on this website is subject to a specific policy:

  • to a disclaimer by the Convention of National Associations of Electrical Engineers of Europe AISBL (EUREL).

Consultation or use of this site in whatever language involves the full acceptance of the general conditions set out below.

Protection of personal data

EUREL attaches great importance to respecting the right to privacy.

'Personal data' means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; an identifiable person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identification number or to one or more factors specific to his or her identity. In principle access to the information available on or via the website of EUREL does not require any personal data to be supplied by the user. However, in order to use certain online services, you may be asked to supply some information about yourself, such as contact details (name and first name, profession, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number or nationality) when filling in a form.

In this regard:

  • EUREL will collect personal information only to the extent necessary to fulfil a precise purpose. The information will not be reused for a purpose incompatible with the original purpose.
  • EUREL will disclose information to third parties only if that is necessary for the purposes specified and only to the categories of recipients mentioned. EUREL will not divulge your personal data for direct marketing purposes. EUREL furthermore undertakes to take appropriate security measures to safeguard these data from misuse by third parties.
  • The data may be kept for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which they were collected.
  •  These data may, however, be kept for a longer period for historical, statistical or scientific purposes.
  • Any individual concerned (data subject) has the right to obtain access to and rectification of his or her personal data. Data subjects may also under certain circumstances ask to have these data blocked and for the erasure of data about them which they consider to have been unlawfully processed. Finally, they have the right to object, on compelling grounds, to the processing of their data.
  • To exercise your rights or to obtain any further information, you can apply directly to the General Secretariat.
  • If you believe your rights have been infringed as a result of the processing of your personal data, you can lodge a complaint with the General Secretariat.
  • The website of EUREL sometimes provides links to other internet sites. Since EUREL has no control over such sites, we suggest that you review their privacy policies.
  • For further information, please consult our General Secretariat.

The user undertakes not to delete or change the indications of the author or the source and not to seek to circumvent the technical measures put in place to protect documents and multimedia items, such as print or download restrictions and visible or invisible tagging. Any infringement may lead to civil and criminal proceedings.
