Why does the App use personal data?
To be able to synchronise your data across several devices and to rate initiatives, book events and put questions to Europe House you need to create an account. The account data is classified as personal only if it can be used to identify you.
There are two ways to create a user account:
- by entering your email address and creating a password,
- or by using your Google, Facebook or Apple ID login details.
If you choose to create a Europe House App account with an email address, the application will use the email address provided to identify your user account.
The Europe House App uses this data solely to be able to identify you when you log on to the application. Your data will not be passed on to third parties under any circumstances. In the settings of the Europe House App account, you can choose whether you want to provide your name.
How long do we retain your personal data?
If your account is inactive for more than a year it will automatically be deleted from our databases. Data relating to questions you have sent to the Europe House office is kept for 90 days and then deleted.
All users can view, modify or delete their personal information in the application at any time. Only the email address cannot be changed, as it is this, which links an account to a user.
