Privacy policy

On this page, you will find infor­ma­tion about how the Euro­pean Tech­nol­o­gy Plat­form for the Future of Tex­tiles and Cloth­ing (in short Tex­tile ETP col­lects, stores, uses, and dis­clos­es your per­son­al data when you inter­act with us.

What does this pri­va­cy pol­i­cy cover?

This Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy cov­ers our pro­cess­ing of your per­son­al data that we gath­er when you are access­ing or using our web­site or oth­er infor­ma­tion ser­vices or when you con­tact us.

We store data that may iden­ti­fy you as an indi­vid­ual (“Per­son­al Data”), as explained in more detail below.

Infor­ma­tion you pro­vide to us when you use our website

We may store Per­son­al Data that you choose to send to us or pro­vide to us, for exam­ple, when you con­tact us by email at info(at) or when you reg­is­ter to par­tic­i­pate in our events.

Infor­ma­tion you pro­vide to us when you use our services

We receive and store only the data you pro­vide direct­ly to us.

The types of data we may col­lect direct­ly from you include: names, email address­es, postal address­es, phone num­bers, job titles, as well as oth­er data you provided.

Infor­ma­tion we auto­mat­i­cal­ly collect

We use cook­ies and oth­er tech­nolo­gies to ensure every­one who uses our web­site has the best pos­si­ble expe­ri­ence. A cook­ie is a small data file that is placed on your com­put­er or oth­er devices to allow a plat­form to recog­nise you as a user when you return using the same device and web brows­er, either for the dura­tion of your vis­it (using a ses­sion cook­ie’) or for repeat­ed vis­its (a per­sis­tent cookie’).

When you vis­it www​.tex​tile​-plat​form​.eu, we col­lect cer­tain data relat­ed to your device, such as your device’s IP address, refer­ring web­site, what pages your device vis­it­ed, and the time that your device vis­it­ed our website.

We won’t use cook­ies to col­lect per­son­al­ly iden­ti­fi­able infor­ma­tion about you. How­ev­er, if you want to restrict or block the cook­ies which are set by this plat­form you can do it through your brows­er set­tings, or you may also choose to install Google Ana­lyt­ics opt-out brows­er add-on but remem­ber that restrict­ing cook­ies may mean that you will not be able to take full advan­tage of all the fea­tures avail­able on our page.

How do we use the data?

We use the data we col­lect via our website:

to admin­is­ter our web­site, our events and for inter­nal oper­a­tions, includ­ing trou­bleshoot­ing, data analy­sis, test­ing, sta­tis­ti­cal and sur­vey purposes;

to improve our web­site to ensure that con­tent is pre­sent­ed in the most effec­tive man­ner for you and for your computer;

as part of our efforts to keep our web­site safe and secure.

We may use the data we col­lect to set up a user account.

We may also use the data you send to us via our web­site and/​or ser­vices, to com­mu­ni­cate with you via email and, pos­si­bly, oth­er means, regard­ing events, pub­li­ca­tions, blogs, and newslet­ters we think may be of inter­est to you.

How­ev­er, you will always be able to opt out of such com­mu­ni­ca­tions at any time (see the Your Pri­va­cy Rights” sec­tion below).

Do we share and dis­close data to third parties?

We do not sell your Per­son­al Data to any­one nor do we share it with oth­er organisations.

How­ev­er, there may be cir­cum­stances under which we may have to share your information:

Pro­tec­tion of Tex­tile ETP and Oth­ers:
we reserve the right to access, read, pre­serve, and dis­close any data as nec­es­sary to com­ply with law or court order; enforce or apply our agree­ments with you and oth­er agree­ments, or pro­tect the rights, prop­er­ty, or safe­ty of Tex­tile ETP, our employ­ees, our users, or others.

Is per­son­al data about you secure?

We use appro­pri­ate tech­ni­cal, orga­ni­za­tion­al, and admin­is­tra­tive secu­ri­ty mea­sures to pro­tect any infor­ma­tion we hold in our records from loss, mis­use, and unau­tho­rized access, dis­clo­sure, alter­ation, and destruc­tion. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, no com­pa­ny or ser­vice can guar­an­tee com­plete secu­ri­ty, unau­tho­rized entry or use, hard­ware or soft­ware fail­ure, and oth­er fac­tors may com­pro­mise the secu­ri­ty of user data at any time.

Linked web­sites

For your con­ve­nience, hyper­links may be post­ed on the web­site that links to oth­er web­sites (the Linked Sites).

Linked Sites may col­lect data in addi­tion to that which we col­lect on the Tex­tile ETP web­site. We do not endorse any of these Linked Sites, the ser­vices or prod­ucts described or offered on such Linked Sites, or any of the con­tent con­tained on the Linked Sites. We encour­age you to seek out and read the pri­va­cy pol­i­cy of each Linked Site that you vis­it to under­stand how the data that is col­lect­ed about you is used and protected.

Will Tex­tile ETP change this pri­va­cy policy? 

We are con­stant­ly improv­ing our web­site and ser­vices, so we may need to change this Pri­va­cy Pol­i­cy from time to time. We will alert you to mate­r­i­al changes by plac­ing a notice on our web­site and/​or by send­ing you an email (if you have reg­is­tered your e‑mail details with us) when we are required to do so by applic­a­ble law.
