The operators of these pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data confidentially and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this data protection declaration.
We would like to point out that data transmission over the Internet (e.g. when communicating by email) can have security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data from third-party access.
2. Who is responsible for data collection on this website?
The EPT Agenda 2023 represents an international call to action aimed primarily at physiotherapy education institutions around the world and was initiated by the Executive Committee and members of the Environmental Physiotherapy Association (EPA). The website is not intended for children and we do not knowingly collect data relating to children.
The website is run and administered by the Environmental Physiotherapy Association (EPA). You can find all relevant EPA and EPT Agenda 2023 contact details in the imprint of this website.
3. What data do we collect? How do we collect your data?
Your identity data is collected by you communicating it to us. It includes your title, first name, last name, country of residence, and professional role. This is the data that you enter in the petition that you can find on the EPT Agenda 2023 homepage and ‘Individual Signatories’ page.
Apart from this, our IT systems automatically collect other data when you visit the website. This is primarily technical data (e.g. internet browser, operating system or time of page access). This data is recorded automatically as soon as you enter our website. Usage Data includes information about how you use our website, products and services. Tracking Data includes information we or others collect about you from cookies and similar tracking technologies, such as web beacons, pixels, and mobile identifiers.
4. How we use and disclose your personal data
Your identity data is exclusively used for display on the ‘Individual signatories’ page on our website and the accompanying PDF publication of the EPT Agenda 2023. This page functions like a petition in which you express your support of the EPT Agenda 2023 as it is outlined on our website and the accompanying PDF publication of the EPT Agenda 2023. Once you have consented to it in the petition form, the ‘Individual signatories’ page displays your title, first name, last name, country, and professional role. It will then be included in new versions of the PDF publication.
Technical, usage and tracking data is exclusively collected to ensure that the website is provided correctly.
5. Your legal rights regarding your data
If the General Data Protection Regulation applies to you because you are in the European Union, you have rights under data protection laws in relation to your personal data:
- The right of access – that’s a right to make what’s known as a ‘data subject access request’ for copy of the personal data we hold about you;
- The right to rectification – that’s a right to make us correct personal data about you that may be incomplete or inaccurate;
- The right to erasure – that’s also known as the ‘right to be forgotten’ where in certain circumstances you can ask us to delete the personal data we have about you (unless there’s an overriding legal reason we need to keep it);
- The right to restrict processing – that’s a right for you in certain circumstances to ask us to suspend processing personal data;
- The right to data portability – that’s a right for you to ask us for a copy of your personal data in a common format (for example, a .csv file);
- The right to object – that’s a right for you to object to us processing your personal data (for example, if you object to us processing your data for direct marketing); and
- Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling – that’s a right you have for us to be transparent about any profiling we do, or any automated decision making.
If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out above, please contact us (see How to contact EPA about privacy below).
You will not have to pay a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights). We may need to request specific information from you to help us confirm your identity and ensure your right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to ensure that personal data is not disclosed to any person who has no right to receive it. We may also contact you to ask you for further information in relation to your request to speed up our response.
We try to respond to all legitimate requests within one month. Occasionally it may take us longer than a month if your request is particularly complex or you have made a number of requests. In this case, we will notify you and keep you updated.
