Contact Information

The European Biofuels Technology Platform is a common interest group that aims to promote the development of biofuels for transport in Europe. It is supported by a Secretariat that receives some funding from the European Commission under the Sixth Framework Programme (Contract No: 038979). The project aims to facilitate the entry of European manufactures of sustainable energy technologies (SET), know-how and European research results into the emerging markets, provoked by the European Union Emission Trade Scheme (EU ETS) and Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) markets in Asia. The main tools are information dissemination, project brokerage and partnering events. Additionally this website provides details of good practice, technology and service providers, and background information.

Information provided in registration forms on this website is added to the European Biofuels Technology Platform registrant database. This database is used to disseminate information (usually by email) about the European Biofuels Technology Platform and relevant European Commission activities and events. In some cases it may be used to promote information about other activities which are considered to be of direct interest to European Biofuels Technology Platform registrants.

In order to reduce the amount of information sent to registrants, most of this information will be described in a newsletter. However, if the information is urgent or time-limited, special e-mailings and electronic press releases may be sent.

In order that registrants can feel confident about the safety of information disseminated by the European Biofuels Technology Platform, information by email is generally sent in text-only format without attachments. The emails will usually contain links to pages on the internet where you can view and/or download further information.

What personal information do we collect, for what purpose and through which technical means?

In general, information is collected about businesses rather than individuals. Data collected may include identification data of a person (name, job title, areas of expertise, business contact address and telephone numbers, business email address, business website). In addition event preferences (e.g. parallel workshop to be attended) may be collected when registering for a European Biofuels Technology Platform event.

Forms are provided online and required information is clearly indicated.

Personal opinions on the performance of Biofuelstp, its services and evaluation may also be collected; in these cases supply of name and contact details are optional. These contact details are used to obtain additional information but specific identifiers are not included in any questionnaire results that are published. However, the country, type of organisation or area of interest may be included in the analysis.

The domains of interest and type of organisation are recorded in order to send focused newsletters.

Website log-records record the user’s IP address only. No cookies, etc are used.

Who has access to your information and to whom is it disclosed?

The European Biofuels Technology Platform registrant database is created from information provided from the Biofuelstp online registration forms and relevant event/project information in the public domain. The database is managed by the Website and Database Manager and is only accessible to members of the European Biofuels Technology Platform and Secretariat. It is not published on a website or via a wide-area network (WAN) and will not be made available to a third party or used for any purpose except that stated above.

You will receive an email from www.biofuelstp.eu when your registration has been processed. If you ask for information to be added or changed this will be acknowledged by email.

How do we protect and safeguard your information?

The European Biofuels Technology Platform website and databases are stored on a secure computer hosted by an Internet Service Provider. The server is protected by passwords and firewalls.

How can you verify, modify or delete your information?

To request changes to your entry or ask for it to be deleted from the website or the e-mailing list, contact web@biofuelstp.eu

How long do we keep your data?

The data will be kept during the lifetime of the European Biofuels Technology Platform or until it is deleted at the request of the user or when it is found to be out of date.
