Privacy Statement on the protection of personal data

1. Description

The processing of personal data concerns a list of email addresses and information of individuals collected through the EMODnet portals.

This processing is managed by the EMODnet Secretariat in relation with the European Marine Observation and Data Network (EMODnet) initiative financed by the European Union under Regulation (EU) No 508;2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 May 2014 on the European Maritime and Fisheries Fund.

As this processing collects and further processes personal data, the Data Protection Directive (951461EC) and the ePrivacy directive (2002/58JEC, as revised by 2009136..EC), is applicable. From 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) Regulation (EU) 2016/679) will also apply.

The EMODnet secretariat acts as Controller of the processing of personal data. The EMODnet portals manage the processing itself under the responsibility of its Coordinator and act as Processor. If you have any questions about the processing of your e-mail and related personal data, you can send an e-mail to: secretariat(at)

2. What personal information do we collect, for what purpose and through which technical means?
