  • to comply with our legal and regulatory obligations;
  • for the performance of our contract with you or to take steps at your request before entering into a contract;

A legitimate interest is when we have a business reason to use your information, so long as this is not overridden by your own rights and interests.

EGBA considers as legitimate interests: to inform you and keep in contact with you about industry news and regulatory developments that we believe may be of interest you and; to contact you with information about events organized by EGBA.

For these purposes, we will keep your personal data for as long as necessary to provide you with the information and services described above or for as long as we are legally obliged to do so.

Moreover, you have the right to opt out of receiving our general communications at any time by:

  • contacting us at;
  • using the ‘unsubscribe’ link in emails received via MailChimp.

This will not prevent us contacting you in relation to administrative issues such as managing your membership, the performance of any contract, or regarding a specific request that you have made.



For the provision of our internal and external services, we make data accessible to third party service providers (e.g. distribution mailing services, website hosts). In the case in which the third party is located outside of EU, we will take measures to ensure it is protected to the same standards as it would be within the EU by relying on one of the following:

  • The country that is receiving your Personal Data has been found by the European Commission to offer the same level of protection as the EEA. More information can be found on the European Commission Justice website;
  • We will use contracts that require the recipient to protect your Personal Data to the same standards as it would be within the EEA;
  • Where the transfer is to the US and the recipient is registered with Privacy Shield. Privacy Shield is a framework that ensures Personal Data is protected to a level approved by the EU. Read more about Privacy Shield on the European Commission Justice website.

E.g. for some services and information that we provide you through emails we use MailChimp. You can find here MailChimp’s privacy policy.
