Privacy policy

EUROPEAN LEGAL believes that the responsible use of personal information is critical to its objectives and reputation and should be protected as required by Dutch and EU Law. As part of our commitment to privacy, we have adopted this Online Privacy Statement consisting of the following:

The extent and type of information we receive from you on our external Web sites depends on the information you provide to us through our contact mailboxes and/or through the registration processes on our sites. We only use your personally identifiable information to respond to your requests and to provide you with information about our services, unless we obtain your permission to use your personal formation for other purposes.

EUROPEAN LEGAL reserves the right to change the terms of this Privacy Policy from time to time and, if such changes are made, will place notices so that you can be aware of them. As part of our mission, we are dedicated to making our activities and publications as accessible as possible to the public. No logins are required for any part of the site, and all papers and other publications can be downloaded free of charge.

EUROPEAN LEGAL is concerned about privacy and guards your data closely. We value our relationship with you and recognize the importance of protecting the privacy of your personal information.  The information we have about our customers is protected and secure, and we work diligently to ensure that preferences regarding the use of your information are honored.

Therefore, no private information is stored by the site other than general visitor numbers and information and no details or personal information is shared with third persons without the consent of the involved parties. Comments and inquiries are responded to privately, and other information – such as newsletters – will be send upon request only. EUROPEAN LEGAL is open to any question and request in regard to the rules their applications from any person who is interested in our mission and will respond to such requests within 48 hours.

As part of the registration or account setup or when you make a purchase, EUROPEAN LEGAL may require your email address. The email address you provide as part of the process will be used to contact you regarding your transaction. Some of our Web sites may invite you to register and provide information about yourself.

Such websites also provide an opportunity for you to update your registration information should you no longer wish to receive information from us.

We use this information about the number of visitors and their use of the sites in aggregate form to make our sites more useful and attractive to you.
