EFIC collects:

- questions, queries or feedback you leave, including your email address if you contact EFIC;
- your name, job title, organisation name and country if you register for one of our events. For events held in the European Parliament, attendees without a permanent access pass need to send us their nationality, date of birth and i.d. or passport number which is then shared with the European Parliament security services.
- your email address and subscription preferences when you sign up to our email alerts, and how you use our emails – for example whether you open them and which links you click on

This data can be viewed by authorised people in EFIC to:

- improve the site by monitoring how you use it;
- manage our event registrations and contact you about events you have registered for;
- gather feedback to improve our services
