CEIPA Privacy policy

CEIPA (Centre for European and International Policy Action) is an independent think-tank committed to promoting public debate on major European and international policy issues. Central to CEIPA’s work is the belief that providing a platform for informed debate, the exchange of ideas and the search for common ground between EU policy-makers on one side, and non-state actors and European citizens on the other, is vital to obtain the necessary broad support to underpin EU democratic governance and cohesion.

CEIPA values the protection and confidentiality of your personal data. Therefore, we comply with applicable data privacy legislation with regard to processing personal data. This privacy policy statement is intended to inform you, in a transparent manner, about the data we collect, the purpose for collecting it, the way we use it and the rights you have regarding the processing of your data.
