Who we are
Our website address is: http://gcpalliance.org, home of the Good Clinical Practice Alliance – Europe (GCPA). We strongly value privacy and transparency. To this end, we have created this Privacy Statement with reference to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (2016) and taking into account other laws and practices related to subject data privacy and transparency in practices. The GCPA is a not-for-profit organisation that collects and processes personal data only for specified, explicit, and legitimate purposes that advance health science and ethics.
What personal data we collect and why we collect it
When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.
If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
Personal Data collected through forms
Personal data collected through forms are processed for the purpose(s) described in the forms and such data may be shared with third parties in order to achieve those purposes.
If you leave a comment on our site you may opt-in to saving your name, email address and website in cookies. These are for your convenience so that you do not have to fill in your details again when you leave another comment. These cookies will last for one year.
If you have an account and you log in to this site, we will set a temporary cookie to determine if your browser accepts cookies. This cookie contains no personal data and is discarded when you close your browser.
When you log in, we will also set up several cookies to save your login information and your screen display choices. Login cookies last for two days, and screen options cookies last for a year. If you select “Remember Me”, your login will persist for two weeks. If you log out of your account, the login cookies will be removed.
If you edit or publish an article, an additional cookie will be saved in your browser. This cookie includes no personal data and simply indicates the post ID of the article you just edited. It expires after 1 day.
Embedded content from other websites
Articles on this site may include embedded content (e.g. videos, images, articles, etc.). Embedded content from other websites behaves in the exact same way as if the visitor has visited the other website.
Who we share your data with
This site is built on the WordPress platform and data is automatically shared with WordPress. Data is not shared for commercial purposes, but it may be shared for scientific, archiving, and/or due to legal requirements.
How long we retain your data
If you leave a comment or share content, the comment or content and its metadata are retained for as long as it remains useful for the purpose for which it was collected and processed as well as for archiving purposes thereafter. The user consents to sharing their comments and content without mediation. This is so we can recognize and approve any follow-up comments automatically instead of holding them in a moderation queue.
For users that register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can see, edit, or delete their personal information at any time (except they cannot change their username). Website administrators can also see and edit that information.
What rights you have over your data
If you have an account on this site, or have left comments, you can request to receive an exported file of the personal data we hold about you, including any data you have provided to us. You can also request that we erase any personal data we hold about you. This does not include any data we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal, or security purposes.
