Privacy Policy

The contact information we store may include your name, company, address and other relevant contact details such as your telephone number and email address.

How do we use the information about you?

If you have emailed us with an enquiry and/or filled in a contact form at our website, for example to subscribe to Newsletters and marketing material or to become a member at our website to gain access to restricted parts of the website, we will use and keep your contact information to manage your request(s), to enable us to provide our services to you and to enable us to provide you with information that we believe may be of interest to you.

You can always cancel your membership or unsubscribe to Newsletters by email to ellegaard@minipigs.dk  or by following the unsubscribe instructions in our communications.

With whom is the information shared?

We may from time to time share attendees' personal data with a 3rd party for security reasons and with the purpose of issuing certificates of attendance. We may also from time to time share personal contact information with our affiliates and global partners outside the EU to enable direct communication between our affiliates and global partners and seminars/symposia attendees. Concerning the transfer of data to third countries, we adhere to the applicable Adequacy Decisions taken by the European Commission. 

Further, we may also from time to time share contact information with the non-profit organization Minipig Research Forum, minipigresearchforum.org (abbreviated “MRF), in order to provide information including invitations for events organized by MRF. EGM facilitates the practical organization of MRF and the related webpage.

Otherwise, we only disclose contact information if required to do so by law, court order or for the purposes of prevention of fraud or other crime or if we believe that such action is necessary to protect and defend the rights, property or personal safety of EGM, our website or its visitors.

How long is the information kept?

We seek to ensure that we only keep your contact information for the period necessary for the relevant activity or services.

Protecting your personal data

We use a range of measures to ensure we keep your contact information secure, accurate and up to date, which include:

  • education and training of relevant staff to ensure they are aware of our privacy obligations when handling personal data
  • administrative and technical controls to restrict access to personal data to a ‘need to know’ basis
  • technological security measures, including firewalls, encryption and antivirus software
  • physical security measures, such as security passes to access our premises

The transmission of data over the internet (including by e-mail) is never completely secure. So although we use appropriate measures to try to protect personal data, we cannot guarantee the security of data transmitted to us or by us.

What are your rights?

Your rights include the right to 1) request copy of your data; 2) request correction of your data; 3) request deletion of your data; 4) object to us processing your data; and 5) ask us to restrict the processing. For more information about your privacy rights, please click here.
