The European Competitive Telecommunications Association (ECTA) is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy. This statement outlines our practices in relation to information about yourself, which you submit to us in order to register with the ECTA, and use the website.

Whilst we strive to protect users' personal information with secure forms and encryption, no data transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure and thus the ECTA cannot ensure or warrant the security of any information it may process as part of the site.

To operate our website it is essential to collect and process some data, such as:

  • · Forms filled out on our website allow us to collect information provided by you;
  • · Data collected from communications from you (e.g. via email);
  • · When registering for the ECTA Membership or events we obtain the relevant data necessary to process your order and provide the agreed services. Required data fields are indicated with an asterisk.

How we will use your data:

  • · To provide agreed services including but not limited to membership services (if applicable) invoicing, tickets, event communications, newsletters;
  • · Event advertising;
  • · Market research purposes;
  • · Event related service offerings from selected partners/third parties (if you have opted to receive such communications).

We do not share your personal information with any third party (including advertisers).

The information collected on our website is with your active participation and consent.

Please note that if you have explicitly agreed to receiving contact from us from some other form (e.g. having sent us an email or written correspondence, or by producing your contact information at a conference or exhibition) then you may be added to our Newsletter email list (from which you can opt-out/unsubscribe).

Newsletter subscriptions are stored securely with our Campaign Email service provider who, themselves, are fully GDPR compliant.

Otherwise, personal data held by us is stored on secure computers in our offices and in the Cloud with our database host and service provider.
