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)textile-platform.eu 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?

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.
