    • To communicate and share information using the social media (i.e. unmistakable consent);
    • To collect views on issues ENIL works on, through organising surveys (i.e. unmistakable consent);
    • To apply for funding or a subsidy, and to report to funders (i.e. legal obligation);
    • To collect donations from the public (i.e. unmistakable consent);

To achieve the purposes listed above, ENIL may ask individuals to provide the following data:

Once collected, ENIL will store and process the data according to this Privacy Policy. ENIL commits to only using the data for the purposes for which they were provided.

3.    Sharing data with a third party

The data provided to ENIL can only be shared with a third party when this is strictly necessary.

We will make use of the services of a third party in the following cases:

    • Enlisting new members and Newsletter subscribers (via ENIL’s website, maintained by Bozooart and hosted by Avalon);
    • Distribution of ENIL Newsletters, members’ mailings, press releases, statements or invitations to events (via MailChimp);
    • E-mail correspondence (via Microsoft Office 365)
    • Hosting webinars (via GoToWebinar);
    • Carrying out surveys (via Google Docs or SurveyMonkey);
    • Disseminating information (via Facebook, Twitter or YouTube);
    • Collecting donations (via PayPal);
    • Collecting statistics about visits to our website (via Google Analytics);
    • Organising events (when required for security or administrative purposes, for example by the European Parliament, European Commission or the Council of Europe);
    • Employing staff (social secretariat administration, payroll companies);
    • Registration requirements (Le Moniteur belge).

ENIL will not share personal data with any third party unless it has concluded a data processing agreement, consistent with our Privacy Policy with this party. This is needed to ensure that the necessary arrangements are made to guarantee the safety of personal data by third parties.

Beyond the situations described above, ENIL will not share personal data with another party, unless it has the legal obligation and/or authorisation to do so. An example of this may be that the police asks ENIL to share data in the framework of an investigation. In this case, ENIL has an obligation to cooperate and thus share the requested data.

ENIL may also share personal data with third parties if given written permission to do so. Each individual has the right to withdraw this permission at any time. This will not affect the processing of data before the withdrawal of the permission.

ENIL will not share personal data with parties located outside the European Union (EU).

Each person has the right to demand that ENIL corrects or deletes their personal data from its system. This Privacy Policy contains contact information for those who wish to do so, and it can also be found on the ENIL website (www. http://enil.eu/contact-us/). To avoid abuse, ENIL requires that each individual provides a copy of an ID card or passport, or a similar document, to allow the organisation to confirm their identity.

Individuals can also object against the processing of their personal data (or part of it) by any particular member of ENIL staff. You have the right to ask ENIL to send a copy of your personal data the organisation has collected, or you can ask ENIL to send your personal data directly to a third party of your choice. In such situations, ENIL will ask you to prove your identity before fulfilling the request.
