In some cases we collect your data for surveys or researches that you can participate in voluntarily.

Any research data entrusted to the Research Committee will be handled with reasonable care and within reasonable expectations. This means that the data provided will be discussed and shared with members of the Research Committee where necessary to process and analyse the data to transform it into meaningful information. Such collaboration is common in research and meets reasonableness tests. Your confidentiality is crucial and shall be respected at all times. Your personal information will never be shared with others. In terms of any research reporting no identifiable details of any research participants will be shared and your anonymity shall be maintained to the highest ethical standards.

For more information on data collected and by the Research Committee please consult the GDPR consent form, which you can find here.

Your confidentiality is crucial and shall be respected at all times. Your personal information – if known to us – will never be shared with others.



EARTh organises webinars and online workshops or meetings regularly. The program we use for this is Zoom. We collect names and email-addresses for registrations. Webinars and meetings are often recorded so they can be reviewed later on. Participants need to identify themselves when entering the meeting or webinar, but during the session they can shut off their video and/or rename themselves if they don’t want their video or data to be shown in the recording. Being in time before the meeting begins is necessary for those that don’t want their name and video on the recording.
