Personal Data We May Collect From You
Personal data means information that identifies you or could be used to identify you and which is submitted to and/or collected.

We will only collect personally identifiable information or such other information as may be listed in the relevant data collection form, via our website when it is voluntarily submitted by you to us.
After you have entered personal information, for example, into a form or data field on the Tech Europe website, we may use certain identifying technologies to allow our website to remember your personal preferences, such as the pages of the website that you visit frequently. We will only use your personal information for business purposes, such as to offer you the opportunity to receive notices regarding Tech Europe’s products or services, to invite you to participate in surveys about our products. Tech Europe will only end you marketing related emails if you provided us with your prior opt-in for such purposes.
We may collect and process the following personal data about you for the purposes specified:
• Personal data that you give to us by filling in forms on our website or by corresponding with us by telephone, e-mail or otherwise. This may include your name, e-mail address and contact number.

You may always limit the amount and type of personal information that Tech Europe receives about you by choosing not to enter any personal information into forms or data fields on Tech Europe websites. Some of our online services can only be provided to you if you provide us with appropriate personal information.
Personal information can be accessed by a restricted number of Tech Europe employees, by certain companies with which Tech Europe may conduct joint programs, and by third parties with whom Tech Europe contracts to carry out business activities. We train our employees about the importance of privacy and how to handle and manage customer data appropriately and securely. Also, it is Tech Europe’s practice to seek your consent where required by applicable law if you are registering for a program which is conducted in conjunction with another company that may require access to your personal information.

Data Storage & Keeping Information Secure
Some companies that provide services to us run their services from outside the European Economic Area. We only let that happen if we are satisfied with their levels of security. Keep in mind that when you give us personal information it could be being transferred, stored or processed in a location outside the EEA.
