This web page describes how we use your personal and conference data for the management of your abstract submissions and participation as stream or session chair in the EURO Abstract Submission Tool (hereafter referred to as EAST). It complements the global EURO Website Privacy Policy.

Use of Personal Information by Conference Organizers

We collect data that is normally required by conference organizers. This is your name, email address, address for correspondence, Web page, country, affiliation, or phone number.

This section covers our policy on handling your data for uses other than the use by conference organizers as described in Sections 1.

  1. We do not sell, distribute, or pass your personal data to any organization, except to the conference local organizers to match abstract submission information with registration for the conference.
  2. Your data might be used to send periodic emails regarding our activities. However, users can unsubscribe at any time by using the link at the bottom of each email.

The following information is collected by the EAST and is necessary for providing our services:

  1. Account data: we collect information when you create or update your EAST account. This include your name, email, organization, country, login name and password (which is stored encrypted). You can also optionally provide your address and phone number.
  2. For the production of the conference program, information about authors and the published content (abstract of the talk).
  3. We may collect information about IP addresses you use to access our services.
  4. We may collect information about how you interact with our services. This includes information such as access dates and times and published information you access. In some cases, we collect this information through cookies.

The EAST uses cookies. A cookie is a small file of letters and numbers that we put on your computer if you agree. These cookies allow us to distinguish you from other users of the EAST Web Site, which helps us to provide you with a good experience when you browse the EAST and also allows us to improve the EAST.

The use of cookies is necessary for secure user authentication. We only use secure cookies.

We do not use third party cookies on our Web pages and thus do not allow third party services to collect information about your use of EAST.
