Protecting Your Privacy
The SHIFT Consortium strongly values our own privacy – and therefore are committed to protect your personal data (i.e. information that identifies you) as though it is our own. One of your rights under applicable law, particularly Regulation [EU] 2016/679, or as it is otherwise known, the GDPR – 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.
We assure you that we will only use and disclose any personal data collected from you in accordance with the manner set out in this policy.
Information we collect
Most of the personal information which we may collect about you through this website is given to us only if you choose to give it to us. Such personal information may be requested from you when you fill in a field (e.g. sign up for our newsletter or fill in any other form with your questions and comments). If you send us emails, then the personal data we process will depend on what you send us in the email.
The information we collect from you normally includes the following:

Some other information is given to us because you accessed this website (e.g. logs, recorded through cookies). This is explained in our Cookies Policy.
How & Why we use your information
We use your information in a number of different ways — what we do with it then depends on the information and the purpose for which we collected. The question below set this out in detail, showing what we do, and why we do it.
a. Your name and your contact details
How we use your Name + surname + workplace + contact details (email address)?
b. Information about your device (phone or laptop) with which how used our website
How we use information about your phone or laptop, and how you use our website and app?
Information you give us when you browse our site or use our app, including your IP address and device type and, if you choose to share it with us, your location data, as well as how you use our website and app. We use this data to improve our website and set default options for you (such as language and currency) and to Protect our website.
To give you the best browsing experience
To prevent and detect fraud against either you or us — and to meet our legal obligations about looking after your data
The Legal Basis for Processing
For some of the uses of your personal data (as described above) there is a legal basis under applicable data protection laws for us to use such personal data without having obtained your consent.
This includes, for example, where it is necessary for us to use the information to perform a contract with you or take steps at your request prior to entering into a contract with you, provide customer-care and support services to you.
It also includes circumstances (such as we have described below) where we have a legitimate interest to use your data, provided that proper care is taken in relation to your rights and interests:
Children Under 18
If you are aged 18 or under, please get your parent/guardian’s permission before you provide any personal information to us.
We will need to process personal data relating to parents or guardians in that case – and we may also need to request for verification documentation to ensure that consent is given or authorised by the holder of parental responsibility.
Sharing your information
We do not, and will not, sell any of your personal data to any third party – including your name, address, email address or credit card information. It is not our business to do so – and we want to earn your trust and confidence. However, we share your data the rest of the members of the SHIFT Consortium.
You enjoy several rights relating to your personal information:
Security of your Personal Data
Security of your personal data is very important to us.
Where it’s appropriate, our website uses HTTPS to help keep information about you secure. However, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be totally secure.
You may complete a registration process when you sign up to use parts of the websites. This may include the creation of a username, password and/or other identification information. Any such details should be kept confidential by you and should not be disclosed to or shared with anyone.
Where you do disclose any of these details, you are solely responsible for all activities undertaken where they are used.
Whenever you create a password, then to protect your account you should choose a strong password, meaning it should be lengthy and include a mixture of letters and numbers with mix of CAPS.
We do our best to keep the information you disclose to us secure. However, we can’t guarantee or warrant the security of any information which you send to us.
Security measures which have implemented to secure information transmitted over our website or stored on our systems include the following:
Please understand, however, that no system is perfect or can guarantee that unauthorised access or theft will not occur.
