Types of data collected

When you make use of our website, we use Google analytics to collect standard internet log information and details of visitor behaviour patterns. We do this to find out things such as the number of visitors to the various parts of the site. This information is only processed in a way that does not identify anyone. Therefore no personal data are collected. We do not make, and do not allow Google analytics to make, any attempt to find out the identities of those visiting our website. 

You can read more about how we use cookies on our Cookies Policies.

When you contact us, your personal data (name, email address) and your inquiry message will be processed by the Hydrogen Science Coalition in order to provide you with the requested support. This data processing is based on your consent (article 6.1.a of the GDPR). We do not retain those contact details for longer than necessary to answer your request.

We do have recourse to service providers to support our work. Those service providers otherwise referred to as data processors are  third parties who provide elements of support to the Hydrogen Science Coalition. We do not transfer any of your personal data to service providers. On top, we do not transfer any of your data collected as mentioned above to any third party. 

Our site may contain links to other sites. If you click on a third-party link, you will be directed to that site. Note that these external sites are not operated by us. Therefore, we strongly advise you to review the Privacy Policy of those websites too. We have no control over, and assume no responsibility for the content, privacy policies, or practices of any third-party sites or services.

Your personal data are handled in full confidentiality. We make all necessary effort to take technical and organisational measures that might be required so as to ensure security of your personal data.
