Euro-IX respects the privacy of your personal information and is committed to protecting the personal information that you provide. This Euro-IX Privacy Statement applies to all personal information Euro-IX processes, including the collecting, publication, sharing and usage of personal information. The Euro-IX Privacy Statement describes how Euro-IX processes your personal data and how you can access and make changes to your personal data.
The main purpose for which Euro-IX processes personal information is to support its role as a membership based association for Internet eXchange Points (IXPs). An activity to fulfil this role is the collection of data on IXPs, this includes some personal data, like contact details (see 2.1).
Additionally, Euro-IX processes personal information for the purpose of performing activities for the benefit of the Euro-IX members or for the benefit of the IXP community (see 2.2).
The public IXPDB shows data collected from IXPs. The records may contain contact details (name, email address, phone and fax numbers and postal address) of persons responsible for the operation of that IXP and/or for maintaining the information in the IXPDB.
In some cases, Euro-IX inputs the initial information. Subsequently, the personal information pertaining to a specific registration is provided and maintained by the authorised person. Updating is subject to an authentication and authorisation procedure (see 5). The party who enters personal data is responsible for keeping all data maintained by him accurate and up-to-date, including maintaining correct contact details (see 6).
Euro-IX publishes the contact details to make it possible for Euro-IX and the Internet network community to contact the appropriate persons when it is necessary:
In addition to publication of the IXPDB, the IXPDB may be mirrored to databases operated by other organisations. The databases of these other organisations, furthermore, may also be mirrored. This system allows users to retrieve data from the IXPDB from multiple sources.
Euro-IX also, for the purposes specified above, allows proxy access to the IXPDB via third parties. In addition, third parties use a Near Real Time Mirror (NRTM) of the IXPDB excluding personal information.
Where necessary for the above purposes and to comply with statutory obligations, Euro-IX may also keep historical data (data that was published in the IXPDB before the record was updated).
Except as described herein or when under a statutory duty to do so, Euro-IX does not share or transfer any personal data.
In addition to the collection and use of personal data in relation to the IXPDB, Euro-IX provides other services and activities that may require the processing of your personal information. These include:
Euro-IX may use contact details provided in relation to all the above activities to send you relevant information on its activities and services, such as announcements on network upgrades, outages, Euro-IX fora, workshops and other organised events. Euro-IX may also on occasion forward public messages to a particular mailing list if it is relevant and appropriate for that list. If you do not wish to receive such messages, you can unsubscribe yourself at any time (see 5).
Data collected for the above purposes may be transferred to third parties engaged by Euro-IX in the provision of such services. The information shared in these cases is limited to that required for the respective purpose and is subject to those other organisations providing equivalent levels of security and protection.
In addition to the above, Euro-IX may register, process or transfer your personal data where such is required pursuant to a statutory duty.
Euro-IX maintains strict procedures to authenticate people's identification and verify their right to authorise changes in the IXPDB.
Personal data held in the public IXPDB is available to the public. Use of the IXPDB by members of the public is subject to the IXPDB Terms and Conditions. People attempting to abuse this service will have their access to the IXPDB blocked.
Euro-IX maintains a high level of physical security and protection for all its computer and network facilities, and, in particular, for those in which personal information may be stored.
