We obtain information about you when you use our website, for example, when you contact us to ask a question or gain more information about our activities, when you enter the details of a community energy project for the interactive map on our website, or when you subscribe to receive our monthly newsletter.
What type of information is collected?
The personal information we collect might include your name, the organization you work for, the website of that organization, email address, IP address, addresses of community energy projects (map) and information regarding what pages you access on our website, and when.
How is your information used?
We may use your information to:
- send you a monthly newsletter which you have requested, including information that has a direct link with our network’s activities.

As part of our work, however, we might carefully share personal information between different parties within the REScoop.eu network, in order to facilitate the exchange of knowledge and experience. We use IT-solutions of third parties such as Mailchimp, Strikingly and Basecamp. Each of those parties has committed to be compliant with the GDPR-regulation .
