The CEM respects your privacy and is committed to protecting the confidentiality of your personal information.
As a general rule, to enable the CEM to correctly identify you, to provide you with the products and services you have requested and to communicate with you, the following minimum information must be provided in order for your order, request, application, etc. to be processed:
Title, First Name(s), Family Name(s)
Full Postal Address
Email address, Phone Number
Other personal information may be requested to help identification (e.g. date of birth), to contact you in case of need (telephone), or to enable the CEM to understand your profile so you can be provided with better and more appropriate products and services (e.g. Professional Activities and Fields of Interest). It does not apply to information the CEM holds about companies and other organisations.
For registering for a meeting we also need your Credit Card Informations. They are used only for the purposes of that particular transaction. For your protection, the credit card information is not retained in the CEM system for later use for any other transactions.
As a general rule, personal information is kept a reasonable period of time, dependent upon the nature of the information and its intended use. Your information will be kept in the CEM system even if you do not use CEM products or services during that time.
For your convenience and security, your email address is unique to you in the system. You are strongly recommended to use an email address which is personal to you and that is not shared with others. This is to ensure that communications which are sent to you personally are not read by others, and that others do not gain access to the information in your ‘My CEM’ account.
Additionally, the unique email permits automated retrieval of your log-in details, which are sent to your personal email address.
The CEM respects the privacy of personal email addresses and complies with the current legislation on email communication. The objective is to not send you unwanted messages, and your email details will not be passed on to any other individual or organisation without your explicit permission.
The CEM may send you emails concerning:
Products and services in your field of interest
Updates of the organisation and of urology in general (call for application for scholarships, abstracts, grants and more).
If you indicate that you do not wish to receive emails from the CEM, you will only receive emails directly related to the transactions you have with the CEM (e.g. confirmations of registrations, etc.) and other necessary individual communications.
This general policy is in addition to any specific policies concerning specific products or services. It may be amended at any time.
You have the absolute right to access, amend, and oppose the use of your personal data. If you want to know exactly what personal information the CEM keeps on file, you can obtain it. If it transpires that the information is inaccurate, or you wish to oppose its use in future, the CEM will make the necessary amendments and confirm that these have been made. Please contact the CEM in the following ways:
