INFORMATION USE AND THE LEGAL BASIS FOR THIS USE​

FEI uses information collected for the following purposes:

WITHDRAWING CONSENT OR OTHERWISE OBJECTING TO DIRECT MARKETING

Wherever we rely on your consent, you will always be able to withdraw that consent, although we may have other legal grounds for processing your data for other purposes, such as those set out above. In some cases, we are able to send you direct marketing without your consent, where we rely on our legitimate interests.  You have an absolute right to opt-out of direct marketing, or profiling we carry out for direct marketing, at any time. You can do this by following the instructions in the communication where this is an electronic message, or by contacting us using the details set out below.

CHILDREN'S PRIVACY

FEI does not knowingly collect personal data from children under the age of 16.

FEI does not take specific steps to protect the privacy of children who disclose their personal data to FEI.

YOUR RIGHTS

You have the right to ask us for a copy of your personal data; to correct, delete or restrict (stop any active) processing of your personal data; and to obtain the personal data you provide to us for a contract or with your consent in a structured, machine readable format, and to ask us to share (port) this data to another controller.

In addition, you can object to the processing of your personal data in some circumstances (in particular, where we don’t have to process the data to meet a contractual or other legal requirement, or where we are using the data for direct marketing).

These rights may be limited, for example if fulfilling your request would reveal personal data about another person, where they would infringe the rights of a third party (including our rights) or if you ask us to delete information which we are required by law to keep or have compelling legitimate interests in keeping. Relevant exemptions are included in both the GDPR and applicable local data protection legislation. We will inform you of relevant exemptions we rely upon when responding to any request you make.

To exercise any of these rights, or to obtain other information, such as a copy of a legitimate interests balancing test, you can get in touch with us – or our data protection officer – using the details set out below. If you have unresolved concerns, you have the right to complain to an EU  data protection authority where you live, work or where you believe a breach may have occurred.

QUESTIONS OR SUGGESTIONS & DATA CONTROLLER

We hope that we can satisfy queries you may have about the way we process your data. If you have any concerns about how we process your data, or would like to opt out of direct marketing, you can get in touch at dpo@fei.org or by writing to FEI, HM King Hussein I Building, Chemin de la Joliette 8, 1006 Lausanne, Switzerland.
