The European Parliament applies a policy for the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data, which is based on Regulation (EC) No 45/2001 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 18 December 2000. As a matter of principle, users can access information on, or via, the European Parliament website without having to supply personal data, except in the case of certain online services for which a request form must be submitted.
The European Parliament does not gather personal information except for explicit purposes specified by the data processing controller for each online service. The information will not be re-used for any purpose incompatible with that. The information you are asked to supply is as follows: surname, first name, postal address (street, town/city, post code, country) and email address (these are obligatory fields). The data may not be kept for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which it was collected. The European Parliament does not disclose your personal data for direct marketing purposes, and it undertakes furthermore to take appropriate security measures to ensure that your data is not misused by third parties. You have a right of access to your data and the right to correct it. To exercise your rights, or for further information, please contact the data processing controller directly.
