Privacy & Data Protection
We, CEPIC, International Association of the Media Licensing Industry take the protection of your personal data and information very seriously.
It is your right to request details of the information we hold about you. For a copy of your personal information held by us, write to firstname.lastname@example.org
We collect data from our website primarily so that we can provide you with the most useful and relevant information and services from CEPIC and CEPIC member organisations. We do this by collecting and analysing both anonymous, or aggregate, data and personal data volunteered by you online.
In some areas of our website, for example forms, discussion forums, emails, polls and survey submissions, we may collect personal data such as your name, address, telephone number and email address if provided by you. We use this information only for the reason that you have supplied it, or for any other reason that you have given us permission to use it.
Where relevant, information is provided to explain why the data is being collected and how it will be used. In some cases we may ask you to ‘opt-in’ to receive future communications including email. In other cases, when we ask you for information about yourself, you may tell us that you do not wish to receive future communications from us by ticking the appropriate box provided.
Should it be necessary to collect sensitive personal data, you will be asked for your consent for us to process this data. We will also explain why we are asking for it.
Data collected is only collected for the necessary purpose of collection and only kept as long as the project necessitates this.
In addition to information given explicitly by you, we also collect information about your visit to our website (for example, the date and time of your visit and the pages that you view). This information is not connected to you personally, and is in aggregate form. This kind of data helps us to understand how our visitors use our site so that future website development can better meet your needs.
It should be added that you may access material on this website without directly providing specific data. Some internet data is collected automatically, such as the type of device you use to browse the website, the operating systems, the IP address and its calculated geographical location, the duration fo your visit, the pages your IP address visited etc. This information allows us to analyse the way you interact with certain content. Additionally, we may require you to identify yourself to provide you access to parts with restricted access.
What are cookies?
In some circumstances, we collect data using cookies. A cookie is an alphanumeric text file that is sent from a website and stored on your computer’s hard drive by your web browser.
Cookies allow a website to remember who you are, so that when you visit them again, they recognise you as a visitor and can help you with personalised information in filling out forms, for instance, or signing in. Most browsers allow you to turn off the cookie function. To do this, look at the help menu on your browser.

Why we need information
The information we gather helps us to send you the right information at the right time, and to provide you with relevant products or services. For example, by registering to use our blog, you give us the right to contact you about issues related directly to the service.
We may also use your details to contact you in the future to tell you about our work. However, our policy is to email you about issues not directly related to our web services only if you have said that you want electronic communication from us. This is in accordance with the Privacy Regulations. Furthermore, all our emails will offer you the chance to decline future emails.
Respecting your privacy
As a matter of CEPIC policy, we do not sell, rent or pass on any information about you to other organisations. However, we may share your data with subsidiary companies of CEPIC. If necessary to provide you with information or services that you have requested, we may also share it with our partners or affiliates with whom we work or who work for us. If you do not wish us to use this information in this way, please email us at: email@example.com.
We want to make sure the information we hold about you is correct. If your contact details change, or if you do not wish to receive information about CEPIC, let us know. You can contact us by email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Safe and secure
We maintain a high level of physical and electronic security in relation to the collection, storage and disclosure of your information. While we make every reasonable effort to ensure that information sent to us is done so securely, we cannot warrant the security of information transmitted to us through the internet. When you transmit information to us via the internet, you do so at your own risk.
