Privacy notice

One of your rights under EU law is that you must be informed when your personal data - also known as personal information - is processed (collected, used, stored) by any organisation. You also have the right to know the details and purpose of that processing.

The AIDA website is the project’s most important communication tool. Here we communicate our work, news and information to the general public.

Some of the services offered on our website require the processing of your personal data.

 Here we give you a general overview of some of the ways this website processes your personal data including the use of cookies and social media.

AIDA is committed to user privacy. All personal data collected by AIDA’s dissemination leader are processed in accordance with the provisions of Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2018 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data by the Union institutions, bodies, offices and agencies and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Regulation (EC) No 45/2001 and Decision No 1247/2002/EC.

Your personal data and our website

Although you can browse through the AIDA website without giving any information about yourself, in some cases, personal information is required in order to provide the services you request. Europol is the data controller of the processing operation concerning the collection of personal data submitted in our website forms by users. This includes names, contact details as well as the content of the information sent. Within Europol, the request containing your personal data is accessible only to authorised members of Europol staff. You are entitled to access the personal data Europol holds about you and to have them rectified where necessary. In certain cases, you also have the right to have your data blocked or erased or to object to their processing. To exercise any of these rights, please use the contact us page on the website.

We keep the information received via online forms - including your personal data - for up to three years. This is without prejudice to possible longer conservation for the purpose of ongoing communication with the requester.

The AIDA project provides links to third party sites. Since we do not control them, we encourage you to review their privacy policies.

For site security purposes and to ensure that this service remains available to all users, all network traffic is monitored to identify unauthorised attempts to upload or change information or otherwise cause damage or conduct criminal activity. To protect the system from unauthorised use and to ensure that the system is functioning properly, individuals using this computer system are subject to having all of their activities monitored and recorded by personnel authorised to do so by Europol.

Anyone using this system expressly consents to such monitoring and is advised that if such monitoring reveals evidence of possible abuse or criminal activity, personnel may provide the results of such monitoring to the appropriate authorities.

Social Media

We use social media to present our work through widely used and contemporary channels.

Our use of social media is highlighted on our website.

Cookies may be collected by the social media buttons linked on our website, either when our website loads on your device or from social media services embedded in our webpages.

Each social media channel has their own policy on the way they process your personal data when you access their sites. For example, if you look at our Twitter activity on Twitter, you will be asked for explicit consent to accept Twitter cookies; the same applies for LinkedIn.

If you have any concerns or questions about their use of your personal data, you should read their privacy policies carefully before using them.
