EuroPython 2017

Privacy Policy

We respect your personal data and privacy.

Personal Information

Under no circumstances we sell, rent or distribute your personal information (including your email address, name, or anything else you entered in your profile) to third-parties entities. Only our system administrators and our support team have access to your data. You can amend and remove any information at any time, from your profile page.

We have striven to make sure that we ask as little personal information as possible throughout the website, both for speakers and for regular participants.

Speakers are asked to submit additional personal information, part of which will become public (eg: full bio). The talk submission form explains what data will be published and what data will be kept private, and each speaker can preview his/her public page before it is made public, and can amend its contents at any time.

Participants can optionally opt-in to publish their profile page to other EuroPython participants, to help connecting during the event.

No spam

We will not sell or rent your email to other entities. We respect your choices.

If you subscribe to our newsletter or mailing-list, your email address will be used only to deliver list messages, and will not otherwise be used or shared. You can unsubscribe at any time by following the link at the bottom of each email.

If you opt-in to receive jobs offerings from our sponsors that are looking for hires, no personal information (including name and email address) will be shared with those sponsors: and all emails will go through our systems to protect your privacy. You can opt-out at any time from your profile page. The same applies to keystone sponsor mailings we may occasionally send out.

Audio, video recordings and photography

We will have audio and video recordings during the event (for e.g. the talk recordings), as well as one or more photographers taking pictures to help us with marketing the event in future years by publishing photos in brochures, on our websites or third-party sites such as Flickr, or YouTube, where we maintain accounts.

We will take care not to make photos, videos or audio recordings public which could cause harm to the individuals shown/heard on them. If you do find such pictures/videos/audio recordings on one of our sites or accounts, please write to our to ask for review.

Third-party services

A few third-party services help us running the website. We might share some information on our visitors with them, as part of their service. They have been carefully selected because we believe that they are well-behaved privacy-wise:

Google Analytics (privacy policy). They track visitors through IP addresses and cookies, and show us nice graphs. You can opt-out from this service through a browser extension.

Janrain (privacy policy). It's the social web login service. They get to know who logins to our website and with which web site/service. They don't get to know any passwords (nor do we). You can avoid using it and go with the standard login form (in this case, we will store your hashed password using PBKDF2 with SHA256 hash and salt).

Removing your information

If you want to wipe your account and all the information, you need to write us an email requesting so.

Our staff will erase your data from all files, database records and backups. You will be informed at the end of the process. Information cannot be restored afterwards.

The only exception to data wiping is invoices: if you have bought something on our website, we are legally required to preserve the invoices for 5 years after the emission.

This website and the conference is run by the EuroPython Society (EPS) in cooperation with the on-site team with members of Python Italia APS.

Both are non-profit associations. To contact us, please visit the contacts page. For legal information, please see the imprint page.
