The European Union of Medical Specialists/European Board of Neurology (UEMS/EBN) assures to collect and use only those personal data of its members which are necessary for the support and administration of members as well as for the pursuit of the association's goals. The data collected and stored by the UEMS EBN for the processing, administration and termination of the membership defined by the statutes and the purpose of the association, include personal data (name, address, date of birth, e-mail address, telephone and fax number) and possibly other data necessary for the type of membership and the collection of data for the EBN examination (professional affiliation, training status, payment information).

According to the GDPR, every member has a right to get information about the data stored by him or her. The UEMS EBN processes and stores the personal data provided only as long as this is necessary for the fulfilment of the aforementioned purposes. This data will be deleted once the purpose has been achieved and after statutory retention obligations have expired. Each member has the right to rectification of its data, revocation of the consent or deletion of personal data, as long as this does not contradict the purpose of the association as stated in the statutes of association.

The UEMS EBN collects and stores this data by means of data processing equipment (EDP) to fulfill its statutory purposes and tasks in accordance with the provisions of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and has implemented appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure that no unauthorised access to the data made available (and no unlawful processing of the data) takes place.

As far as this is necessary for the fulfillment of the contract or justified within the scope of justified interests of the UEMS EBN personal data will also be transmitted to contract processors (service providers) employed by the UEMS EBN if they comply with the data protection requirements specified in writing by the UEMS EBN and commit themselves to secrecy towards the UEMS EBN.
For this purpose, an order processing agreement is concluded with the service providers used. Data is only transferred to countries outside the EU or the EEA (so-called third countries) if this is necessary for the performance of the contract.
