Personal data including 'cookies'

The European Union is committed to user privacy. The policy on 'protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by the Community institutions' is based on Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2018 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data by the Union institutions, bodies, offices and agencies and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Regulation (EC) No 45/2001 and Decision No 1247/2002/ECText with EEA relevance.

Although you can browse through most of the EMCDDA website without giving any information about yourself, in some cases, personal information may be required in order to provide the e-services you request. In this respect:

  • For each specific service, a controller determines the purposes and means of the processing of personal data and ensures conformity of the specific service with the privacy policy;
  • At the EMCDDA, the Data Protection Officer, dpo[a]emcdda.europa.eu, monitors the compliance with the Regulation and advises controllers on fulfilling their obligations (more information about Data protection at the EMCDDA);
  • For all EU Institutions and Agencies, the European Data Protection Supervisor acts as an independent supervisory authority with regard to the protection of personal data.

Data subjects have the right to access their personal data and the right to rectify any data that is inaccurate or incomplete.
