We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. communication by e-mail) can have security gaps. A complete protection of data against access by third parties is not possible.

Already during the use of our website, data is being collected which is only used for the purposes of operation, security, internal statistics and the optimisation of our Internet offer. Some of the contents of the website can only be accessed if you log in beforehand with your user name and password, as assigned by EAACA. The sole purpose of this is to restrict the access to certain internal content, and information within the association, to the circle of members and member companies.

The use of our website is generally possible without having to prove personal data. The personal data raised on our side is always voluntarily provided, for example name, address or e-mail addresses. This data will not be passed on to third parties without your express consent.

Data collection and use for contract processing: We collect personal data if you provide it to us voluntarily as part of a contact enquiry. Which data is collected can be seen from the respective input forms. We use the data you provide to process your enquiries. After completing the processing of an enquiry or the contract, your data will be blocked from further use and deleted after the expiry of the required the storage periods, as prescribed under tax and commercial law, unless you expressly consent to further use of your data or we reserve the right to use it beyond this period for specific data applications permitted by law. The deletion of your data is possible at any time and can take place via a message to the designated contact in the imprint.

Passing data on to third parties: If you have provided us with personal data, we will use it only to answer your enquiries, process the contracts concluded with you and for technical administration. Your personal data will only be transferred to third parties in individual cases, if it is indispensable for the purpose of processing the contract.
