- We (may) collect personal data about you from applications, forms or questionnaires you may complete or agreements you enter into with EF or in the course of you establishing or maintaining a customer relationship with EF.

Use of Personal Data
Personal data collected about you in accordance with Section “Collection of personal data” above may be used to verify your identity, to provide information to you in your field of interest that we believe may be of interest to you, to record your interest in services that we offer, and to respond properly to your requests for information.
Furthermore, we may use such personal data to contact you in order to announce news, new services or events (including by way of telephone, e-mail, SMS, or fax), for service improvement studies or for internal research.
EF may use the personal data stored about you jointly with its closely affiliated organizations or event/business partners. In cases where we believe that additional services may be of interest to you, we may share your personal data with business partners of EF to the extent permitted by and in accordance with the applicable laws. We may also disclose this information to firms that perform services on our behalf to the extent permitted by applicable laws. These service providers are required to provide for adequate protection of your personal data and to use it only for the purposes set out in this Policy.
EF may, in accordance with the respective requirements under the applicable laws and solely for the purpose mentioned in this Policy, transfer your personal data to other jurisdictions. Except for the purposes set out in this Policy, we do not sell, rent or otherwise disclose to any third party any personal data about the Users, except with such person’s consent or as otherwise permitted or required by law.
We will store your personal data, in accordance with the applicable laws, for so long as such data is needed for the purposes set out in this Policy.
We restrict access to personal data we store about you to those employees or other parties who need access to such data in order to provide services to you. We maintain physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal data, including firewalls, individual passwords and encryption and authentication technology, and take all other necessary and adequate administrative, technical, personnel, and physical measures to safeguard the same against loss, theft, unauthorized use, disclosure, or modification and to ensure its integrity.
Please note, however, that data transported over an open network, such as the Internet or e-mail, may be accessible to anybody. EF cannot guarantee, and is not responsible for, the confidentiality of any communication or material transmitted via such open networks. When disclosing any personal data via an open network, you should remain mindful of the fact that it is potentially accessible to others, and consequently, can be collected and used by others without your consent. In particular, while individual data packets are often encrypted, the names of the sender and recipient are not.
Even if both the sender and recipient are located in the same country data may also be transmitted via such networks to other countries regularly and without controls, including countries that do not afford the same level of data protection as your country of domicile.
Your data may be lost during transmission or may be accessed by unauthorized parties. EF will not be liable for direct or indirect losses as regards the security of your data during its transfer via Internet. Please use other means of communication if you think this is necessary or prudent for security reasons.
