We primarily store and process your personal data in the European Union (EU). If we do transfer your personal data outside the EU, it will be because you have consented to it or we have a legal reason to do so.

How do we secure personal data?

Your personal data is stored on a password secured computer to which only the FEPSAC office manager and the FEPSAC managing council have access.

 

How long do we keep your personal data for?

1) Individual membership form:

A FEPSAC individual membership expires at the end of a calendar year. If the membership is not prolonged two months after expiration, the data will be deleted from our database. You can re-register on our website in case you want to re-join FEPSAC at a later point in time.

2) Application for the FEPSAC Specialist in Applied Sport Psychology (SASP):

In case the application is successful, the submitted information will be kept as long as you hold the FEPSAC certification. In case the application is rejected, the submitted information will be stored until you have re-submitted your application. In case you inform us, that you will not re-submit an application, we will delete the submitted documents.

3) Registration in the list of experts (SASP):

The personal information will be stored as long as you hold the FEPSAC certification. The FEPSAC certification requires that you are a current individual FEPSAC member.
