Who is collecting your data
Citizens Take Over Europe is a website hosted by Alternatives Européennes.
We, Alternatives Européennes (Alternatives Européennes, association under the French law of 1901 | 16 rue Boursault, 75017 Paris, France | email@example.com | hereafter “EA”) would like to be completely transparent on why we need the personal details we request when you support us and how we will use them.
EA is a non-profit organization promoting democracy, equality and culture beyond the nation-state. The data processing in connection with the use of our website serves us to enable you to use the website technically. We understand data protection as part of our commitment to a participatory and inclusive society.
In order to ensure the highest possible security of your data, we use technical tools which are compliant with the GDPR. Nevertheless, your data on the internet can never be fully protected against access by third parties, for example, your emails sent to us may contain security vulnerabilities. We recommend you to use the necessary technical tools to protect your privacy online.
As mentioned above, we must however collect personal data (see details under “When and why do we collect your data”) to enable you to use our Sites and associated services. You have the option not to disclose or provide us incomplete data to use the Sites. However, we might not be able to provide you with the Sites and associated services, in full or not at all.

EA employees will not, under any circumstances, share your data with anyone for any purpose and you will not receive offers from other companies or organisations as a result of giving your details to EA.
Since EA also uses external service providers (netcup GmbH | Daimlerstraße 25, 76185 Karlsruhe, Germany | Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org | netcup.de) for hosting and the maintenance of its IT systems, these could also gain access to your personal data as part of their activities.

We use social plugins from Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Instagram and Add-to-Any on our website. Plugins are optional software extensions. Social plugins are plug-ins of social networks built into a website. When you visit our website, your browser will connect to the social networking servers. The contents of the social plugins are sent to your browser by the social networks and integrated into the website. The use of the social plugins is optional.
