We do our best to keep your data confidential at all times, e.g. by confidentiality agreements entered into with the persons who have access to your data. We may provide data also to companies who work on behalf of European Athletics under confidentiality agreements and/or so-called data processing agreements.
We store your data only for so long as it is necessary (i) to use the mentioned tracking tools, (ii) to render services as you required them or as you have given us your consent and (iii) to meet our legal obligations, in particular in what concerns statutory requirements to keep accounting and business records.
We want you to feel confident about using our website. For that reason, we have implemented reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure your information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure. However, the internet is an open system and we cannot guarantee that unauthorized third parties will never be able to defeat those measures or use your information for improper purposes.
If you communicate with us by e-mail, you should note that the secrecy of internet e-mail is uncertain.
