This policy (and any other documents referred to on it) explains how any personal data that we collect from you, or that you provide to us, will be processed by us. Please read the following points carefully to be sure you understand our views and practices regarding your personal data and how we will treat it.

For the purpose of the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679)(The Act), the data controller is European-Arab Chamber of Commerce.

Any changes we may make to our Privacy Policy in the future will be posted on this page and, where appropriate, notified to you via email.

Information that we may collect from you

The information that we collect via this website may include:

  • Any personal details that you submit such as your name, address, email address and other information.
  • Data that allows us to remember you, any interest that you have recorded and how you use this website. This saves you from re-keying information when you return to this website and allows us to arrange the website content to match your preferred interests. We use “cookies” to collect this data. Cookies are text-only strings of information that are stored on your web browser or hard disk. You have the ability to accept or decline cookies by modifying the settings of your web browser. However, you may not be able to use all the facilities of this website if cookies are disabled.
  • Your IP address (this is your computer’s individual identification number for internet connection) is automatically logged by our web server. This is used to note your interest in this website.
  • Details of your visits to this website (including, but not limited to, traffic data, location data, weblogs and other communication data) and the resources that you access.
  • If you contact us, we may keep a record of that correspondence.

What we do with the information we collect?

We will use information you supply and/or we collect through this website to:

  • build our relationship with our members;
  • attract new members;
  • tell you about goods and/or services which we provide, or which third parties provide, which we feel may be of interest to you;
  • canvas your views through surveys in relation to the services we offer, although you do not have to respond to them;
  • keep our membership records up to date.

We may pass the information you supply and/or we collect through this website to third parties who provide goods and/or services which may be of interest to you.

Your information may be disclosed to regulatory bodies for the purposes of monitoring and/or enforcing our compliance with any regulatory rules/codes/laws. It may also be used for research and statistical purposes. It may be transferred to any country, including countries outside the European Economic Area, for any of these purposes and for system administration. Where this happens, we will ensure that anyone to whom we pass your information agrees to treat your information with the same level of protection as if we were dealing with it.

We may disclose your personal information to third parties without your prior consent:

in the event that we sell or buy any business or assets: in which case we may disclose your personal data to the prospective seller or buyer of said business or assets;

if we or substantially all of our individual assets are acquired by a third party: in which case personal data held by us about our members will be one of the transferred assets;

if we are under a duty to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, or in order to enforce or apply our Terms of Use and other agreements; or to protect the rights, property, or safety of us, our members, or others.

Unfortunately, the transmission of information via the internet is not completely secure. Although we will do our best to protect your personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of your data transmitted to this site: any transmission is at your own risk. Once we have received your information, we will use strict procedures and security features to try to prevent unauthorised access.
