Confidentiality and data sharing

As indicated in the DIAMAP questionnaire, certain elements of the information submitted via the questionnaire, including parts of your personal data, will be made publicly available to any user of the DIAMAP website. 

In addition, information may be shared with collaborating EURADIA member organisations where this has been approved by the DIAMAP advisory board.  The current list of EURADIA member organisations is available above.  EURADIA member organisations are aware that they are not authorized by EURADIA to use any information that is shared with them for commercial purposes.

EURADIA will only share personal data and other information provided via the DIAMAP questionnaire with third parties who are not EURADIA member organisations where EURADIA has an appropriate legal basis for doing so or is required to do so by law.

As at the date of this privacy statement, EURADIA has no arrangements for sharing data in place with third parties who are not EURADIA member organisations and no such arrangements are currently contemplated.


Why do we need your personal data?

EURADIA’s aim is to benefit the wellbeing of people with diabetes, through advocacy for increased funding and improved coordination of diabetes research in Europe.  We ask for your personal data to help us to do this.


What do we do with the personal data?

All the personal data that is submitted to EURADIA via the DIAMAP questionnaire is processed by our staff in the UK.  

However, in addition, EURADIA uses external suppliers to help us to perform our functions.  These external suppliers include:

How long will we keep the personal data?

EURADIA will hold your personal data for 4 years. 

After 4 years, unless it is updated or re-confirmed, your personal data will be retained for a further 6 years [10 years in total] in a separate archive.  It will be used for research purposes in order to allow us to identify trends in diabetes research or to provide reports relating to diabetes research.  The information in the archive will not generally be accessible to EURADIA members and will only be used to support our research.  You can ask us to remove information from our archive at any time.

We aim to refresh all the details we hold on an annual basis but we encourage you to contact us with updates as and when you can.  It is in everybody’s interests to ensure that the information that EURADIA holds and that is publicly available via the EURADIA and DIAMAP websites is as accurate as possible.

EURADIA may keep your personal data for longer than 10 years if we are required to keep it for longer for legal, accounting or reporting reasons.


Keeping your personal data secure

We have appropriate security measures in place to prevent personal data from being accidentally lost or used or accessed in an unauthorised way.

We limit access to your personal data to those who have a genuine business need to know it. Those processing your personal data on our behalf are only permitted to use it for the purposes outlined in this privacy statement and are subject to a duty of confidentiality.

We also have procedures in place to deal with any suspected data security breach. We will notify you and any applicable regulator of a suspected data security breach where we are legally required to do so.



Your rights

Under certain circumstances, the law gives you the right to:

      1. Request access to your data (commonly known as a “subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of your data and to check that we are lawfully processing it.
      2. Request correction of your data. This enables you to ask us to correct any incomplete or inaccurate information we hold about you.
      3. Request erasure of your data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove your data under certain circumstances, for example, if you consider that there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your data where you have exercised your right to object to processing (see below).
      4. Object to processing of your data where we are processing it to meet our or legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground. You also have the right to object where we are processing your data for direct marketing purposes.
      5. Request the restriction of processing of your data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your data, for example if you want us to establish its accuracy or the reason for processing it.
      6. Request the transfer of your data to another party.

Depending on the circumstances and the nature of your request it may not be possible for us to do what you have asked, for example, where there is a statutory requirement for us to process your data and it would not be possible to fulfil our legal obligations if we were to stop.  

Further information on your rights is available from the website of the Information Commissioner’s Office.

If you want to exercise any of the rights described above or are dissatisfied with the way we have used your personal data or if you have any questions about this privacy statement, please contact EURADIA using the details above.

We will seek to deal with your request without undue delay, and in any event in accordance with the requirements of the UK’s data protection legislation.  Please note that we may keep a record of your communications to help us resolve any issues which you raise.
