YOUR INFORMATION IS PROCESSED IN SWITZERLAND, AND MAY BE STORED AND USED ELSEWHERE DEPENDING ON THE LOCATION OF AFFILIATES, BUSINESS PARTNERS, AND OTHER ENTITIES WHO ARE PERMITTED TO ACCESS SUCH INFORMATION UNDER THE TERMS OF THIS PRIVACY POLICY (AND SUCH LOCATIONS MAY INCLUDE COUNTRIES WHICH MAY NOT AFFORD THE SAME LEVEL OF PROTECTION OF SUCH DATA AS THE COUNTRY FROM WHICH YOU PROVIDED THE INFORMATION). IN SUBMITTING INFORMATION TO US, YOU SPECIFICALLY AGREE TO THAT TRANSFER AND ANY RELATED PURPOSES.


The collection of information and how We use it

The main reason why European Athletics collects information is to provide and improve the Website and the services, features and content, and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Website.


European Athletics does not collect personal identifying information when you access the Website homepage and browse the Website without disclosing Your personal data except as described in this Privacy Policy or the relevant part of the Website and except cookies (see below under "cookies").

European Athletics collects personal identifying information when You register on the Website, when You use certain products or services on the Website and when You enter promotions, sweepstakes or similar services sponsored by European Athletics or its business partners. European Athletics may also receive personal identifying information from its business partners. When You register, European Athletics asks for Your name, email address, and some other personal information. Once you register with European Athletics and/or sign in to our products or services, You are not anonymous to European Athletics.
 In case You sign in via Your social network authentication services (Google/Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn/Yahoo account), European Athletics may receive some information from Google/Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn/Yahoo account, but You remain solely responsible for Your whole relationship with Google/Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn/Yahoo account, including, without limitation, any content on the Google/Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn/Yahoo account websites. 
In case You terminate Your membership with Google/Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn/Yahoo account and/or terminate the links between Google/Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn/Yahoo account and Our Website, European Athletics will delete all data received from Google/Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn/Yahoo account concerning you if you ask European Athletics to do so. You can do so using the same easy way as for the ability to access Your personal identifying information as defined in this Privacy Policy. Further, Google/Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn/Yahoo account may require European Athletics to delete data received from Google/Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn/Yahoo account APIs in case of violation of their terms. 
If Google/Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn/Yahoo account will disable any links to Our website, European Athletics will delete all your date received through the use of the Google/Facebook/Twitter/LinkedIn/Yahoo account APIs, unless it is a basic account information or European Athletics have received explicit consent from You to retain your data.

Security

We want You to feel confident about using the Website. For that reason, We have implemented reasonable technical and organisational measures designed to secure Your information from accidental loss and from unauthorised access, use, alteration or disclosure.
