Handling your personal data
EBC considers your privacy to be important and handles your personal data as carefully and securely as possible. In doing so, it complies with the privacy legislation.
EBC records personal data in the course of providing its services. Examples are where you take part in, or register for an exhibition or conference, subscribe to one of our newsletters, express interest in our services or contact us in some other way. These may be personal data, but they may equally well be data examined by us to analyse the use made of our website, for example the number of times our websites are visited and what pages are viewed.

Basis for processing
EBC uses all the personal data mentioned above to implement and process the agreement with you, for example the agreement with you as a visitor to or an exhibitor at an event. EBC may also have a statutory obligation to process your personal data, for example to fulfil our obligations under tax law.

Transfer outside the EU
Your personal data may be transferred to countries outside the EU in cases where EBC's service providers are established in a non-EU member state such as Switzerland or the United States. The level of protection in such countries, including the United States, may not be the same as in the EU. EBC therefore takes appropriate measures to safeguard your personal data.
Your data may also be stored by third parties outside the EU when use is made of Google Analytics, Facebook, Twitter and Linkedin. However, as these parties are registered under the terms of the EU-US Privacy Shield, they will comply with the EU privacy legislation.

EBC uses cookies to gather information about its customers for the purposes of targeted communication, including the provision of service information about its products, and specific marketing activities connected with EBC’s products.

EBC will combine the information collected on our websites and from other sources in order to offer you the best (online) experience and service.
