WordPress

We use, for the design and presentation of our content, a WordPress platform, whose Mailchimp and Newsletter apps, retain the data of users who register through the related forms to the initiatives proposed by our site, in order to manage the sending of news only and exclusively on our contents.

Social platforms

When one of our users subscribes to a social platform, specifically YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, Blogger and Google+, it falls under the “jurisdiction” of data processing established by the various platforms. Ars Europa can only ensure that it is respectful of the guidelines proposed, in relation to this theme, by the aforementioned platforms.

When your data expires

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are retained for 24 months. This is how we can automatically recognize and approve any follow-up comments instead of keeping them in a moderation queue.

For users who register on our website (if any), we also store the personal information they provide in their user profile. All users can view, modify or delete their personal information at any time (except for their username that they can not change). Website administrators can also view and edit this information.

You can also request that we delete all personal data concerning you. This does not include data that we are obliged to keep for administrative, legal or security purposes.

Subscription to the Newsletter
