The European Plastics Distributors Assocation (EPDA) is subject to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This Privacy Notice explains how we use the personal information we collect about you via our website.
EPDA is the ‘Controller’ of the personal data you provide to us via our website and can be contacted at [email protected]
When you visit our website
You can visit our website without giving away your personal information. EPDA uses Google Analytics and Cookies in order to improve our service, user experience and analyse how the website is used.
Cookies are text files placed on your computer to collect standard internet log information and visitor behaviour information. You can set your browser not to accept cookies and remove them from your browser. However, please note that some of our website features may not function as a result. Aside from the approximate location (IP address), the information collected by Google Analytics is mostly anonymous traffic data including browser information, device information and language.
The collected information is used to provide an overview of how people are accessing and using the EPDA website. It is not used for any additional purpose, such as to profile those who access our website.
When you register for an event through us
When you register for an event via our website, you are required to provide full contact details, as well as special / dietary requirements and other event specific information. You will find explanations as to why we are collecting certain data and what we will do with it. A separate Privacy Notice specific to that event can be found on each booking site, which you can review before you complete your booking.
When you contact us
When you contact us via the EPDA website, you may do so by telephone, email or post. EPDA therefore collects the personal information you provide (such as your name, email address, organisation), which will be processed and stored only so that it is possible for us to contact and respond to your enquiry.
It is not used for any additional purpose, such as marketing.
When you opt in to receive the EPDA newsletter
If you wish to receive the EPDA newsletter by email, you can complete the form on the EPDA website. EPDA therefore collects your name, email address and organisation, which are passed to the EPDA’s PR company, who are responsible for sending out the EPDA newsletter. You may unsubscribe at any time.
Your details are not used for any additional purpose, such as marketing.
Social media plug-ins
Our website features two plug-ins for easy sharing and following our social media pages: Facebook, operated by Facebook Ireland Ltd, 4 Grand Canal Square, Grand Canal Harbour, Dublin 2, Ireland and Twitter, operated by Twitter International Company, One Cumberland Place, Fenian Street, Dublin 2, Ireland.
Being on our website does not automatically result in sharing data on these social media networks. These plug-ins remain inactive (idle) until clicked upon. Once clicked upon, you will be taken to the said social media networks with their own specific privacy policies you are recommended to consult.
EPDA cares to ensure the security of personal data. When EPDA collects information about you, we also make sure that your information is protected from unauthorized access, loss, manipulation, falsification, destruction or unauthorized disclosure. This is done through appropriate technical and organisational measures.
