The collection of information and how We use itThe main reason why European Athletics collects information is to provide and improve the Website and the services, features and content, to administer Your membership (together, the “Service”) and to enable users to enjoy and easily navigate the Website.
Automatic InformationEuropean Athletics also automatically receives and records information on Our server logs from Your browser including Your Internet Protocol address (IP address), which identifies Your computer, European Athletics’ cookies information and the page You requested.
European Athletics uses information collected for four general purposes: for technical administration of the Website, for research and development to achieve and maintain a high service level and for customer information (to customise the content you see, to fulfil your request for certain products and services, to send You newsletters and press releases and to contact You about specials and new products and services).
Aggregate information shall also be used to customise the advertising. In using the Website, You expressly entitle European Athletics to collect and process Your information in particular for such marketing and customisation of the Service. You may always revoke Your consent by deleting Your account.
CookiesEuropean Athletics, like many other websites, may set and access cookies on Your computer. A cookie is a small amount of data, which often includes an anonymous unique identifier that is sent to Your browser from a website's computer and stored on Your computer's hard drive.
European Athletics uses its own cookies for number of purposes, mainly to:
- access Your information when You "sign in", so that We can provide You with customised content;
- keep track of preferences You specify while You are using European Athletics’ services;
- estimate and report Our total audience size and traffic;
- conduct research and development to improve the Website contents and services and achieve and maintain a high service level.
PhishingIdentity theft and the practice currently known as “phishing” are of great concern to European Athletics. Safeguarding information to help protect You from identity theft is a top priority. We do not and will not, at any time, request Your credit card information, Your account ID, login password or national identification numbers in a non-secure or unsolicited e-mail or telephone communication.

a) We have Your consent to share the information; or
b) We need to share Your information to provide the product or service You have requested; or
c) We provide the information to companies who work on behalf of European Athletics under confidentiality agreements; or

SecurityWe want You to feel confident about using the Website. For that reason, We have implemented reasonable technical and organizational measures designed to secure Your information from accidental loss and from unauthorized access, use, alteration or disclosure.
