Who we are
Our website address is: https://www.e3sensory.eu.
The party responsible for processing data on this website is the European Sensory Science Society (E3S).
Your privacy is respected
E3S takes the protection of your privacy very seriously and strives to provide services that are transparent, reliable, and focused on the individual. The personal data that is collected through the website is processed in accordance with the applicable privacy regulations.
E3S processes various personal data that is obtained through your use of our website, such as your IP address, the date and time of your visit, your location, your internet browser, and your operating system. These data are collected for the following purposes:
- Improving our website
On our website, there are several areas where you will be presented with the option to provide a response. For instance, this is how you would register for an event. The data that you provide will be used exclusively to complete your request and not for any other purposes. Your information will not be shared with third parties without your consent, unless this is necessary to process your request
Cookies are small text files that are stored on your computer. The data collected cannot be traced to an individual and do not contain any personal data. We mask the last octet of your IP address for these purposes.
There are 3 types of cookies:
- Required cookies: These are cookies that are necessary for the website to work properly. An example of this would be the option of whether or not to accept the cookies on the website. These cookies are not shared with third parties.
- Analytical cookies: Our website and marketing e-mails use these cookies to analyse the site and its statistics. E3S uses these statistics to continuously improve the website and the mailing list content and to provide you with relevant information. Google Analytics is used to assist in this process. Google may provide this information to third parties if it is legally required to do so or if these third parties process information on behalf of Google. We have no control over this.
- Social plug-in cookies: These are cookies that are sent by third parties, which allow us to display social sharing buttons, e.g. for YouTube (Google), Twitter, and LinkedIn. By using these plug-ins, you can share our internet content with others. These can be recognised by the social media provider’s logo. The integration of these plug-ins does not mean that your data is automatically transferred to the social media providers. This only occurs when you click on the button. When that is done, you will be taken to the relevant website and the social media provider’s rules regarding the protection of your data will then apply. E3S has no further control over this, nor does it accept any liability for whatever may happen.
When you visit our website for the first time, you will receive a notification on your screen explaining that you automatically provide your consent to receiving cookies by continuing on to our website. If you do not agree, click “Decline” when you are shown the notification. You can also change your browser settings so that you do not receive any of these cookies. Please see the explanation below for accepting or declining cookies.
If you would like to receive our newsletter, we require a valid email address as well as information that allows us to verify that you are the owner of the specified email address and that you agree to receive this newsletter. We only use this data to send the requested information and do not pass it on to third parties.
We will, therefore, process any data you enter onto the contact form only with your consent per GDPR. You can revoke consent to the storage of your data and email address as well as their use for sending the newsletter at any time, e.g. through the “unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. The data processed before we receive your request may still be legally processed.
The data provided when registering for the newsletter will be used to distribute the newsletter until you cancel your subscription when said data will be deleted. Data we have stored for other purposes (e.g. email addresses for the members area) remain unaffected.
