  • According to transparency requirements of GDPR, reviewers and authors have the right to be informed about the collection and use of their personal data. 
  • The EC3 conference committee will provide the authors and reviewers with information including: purposes for processing personal data, retention periods for that personal data, and who it will be shared with. This is called ‘privacy information’.
  • The minimum term of data retention is 1 calendar year since the day of the first contact.
  • The personal data provided by the author/reviewer will be erased when the personal data is no longer needed or necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was originally collected and processed.
  • The author/reviewers have the right to restrict the processing of their personal data in certain circumstances.
  • The EC3 Conference Committee may share personal information and data of the authors in the cases of plagiarism or other misconduct detected. In this case, the EC3 Conference Committee is expected to fully cooperate in investigation.
