Privacy notice

Data protection/Privacy notice

NEaT is committed to protecting and respecting the privacy of our members and other professionals who visit our website and attend our events.

This privacy notice explains when and why we collect personal data, how we use them, the limited conditions under which we may disclose the data to others and how we keep data secure.

We collect personal data to provide membership services, run our association and organize our events. We use the personal data we hold to help members contact each other, to organize seminars and workshops, to enable members to advertise their services through our directory, to help users of language services find providers through our directory, to tell non-members about NEaT events though our newsletter, and to manage payment records, payment methods and invoices.

We process personal data in order to provide membership services and organize events for registered participants. In both cases, processing constitutes the performance of a contract. Almost all our data are collected through registration forms with an opt-in consent box.

We use service providers to help us manage our association and deliver services to members, event participants and newsletter recipients. To do this, they may have access to some of the data we hold. These service providers include a website host, a bank, a newsletter, event and sign-up applications, and NeaT members serving as helpers for the organization.

All of these service providers are compliant with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or are actively taking measures to become compliant.

NEaT keeps personal data for the time necessary to perform the contract. This is mostly for up to two years after the event or after a member leaves NEaT. To learn more about specific storage retention times, please contact us for more details.

The aim of this privacy notice is to tell you how NEaT collects and uses personal data. We also inform you about specific data processing practices when you provide us with those data. You have the right to contact us at any time to request a copy of the data we hold about you. You may ask us to correct or remove data you think are inaccurate. As a member, if you ask us to erase all your data, you will not be able to continue being a member. Since the services we provide are unique, we can only give you a list of the personal data we hold, so data portability as such does not apply. You may ask us to restrict our processing of your data or object to such processing. Should you have any other concerns, please contact us.

NEaT stores and processes all of the personal data it holds in compliance with the provisions of the GDPR. Please send any questions about our privacy notice or the data we hold about you to:
