Privacy policy

The personal data you provide to the Covenant of Mayors - Europe website is processed in accordance with the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

This privacy policy sets out how the EU Covenant of Mayors Office (CoMO) uses and protects any information you provide when using “My Covenant”, the extranet of the Covenant of Mayors - Europe website (http://mycovenant.eumayors.eu).

While creating and updating your profile, your personal data will be collected in accordance with this privacy statement and further processed for the purposes detailed hereafter.

What personal information do we collect?

By using the extranet, you consent to the collection of general information about your local or regional authority, organisation or network of local authorities, the contact details of the main CoMO’s interlocutors, including mayor, if relevant, inter alia, name, email address, organisation address, as well as other relevant data about your own “Covenant” actions.

What we do with the information we gather?

The purpose of this data processing is the creation of a database for the whole European Covenant Community. We mainly require these pieces of information for the monitoring and evaluation processes.

The collected information will also be used to customise the Covenant of Mayors - Europe website (www.eumayors.eu) and thus to provide you with high visibility according to your own interests. For example, highlights of the information collected under the Signatory profiles (SEAP template) will be shown online to reflect at a glance the municipality’s strategy, actions and progress.

This database will finally help us periodically contact you and other Covenant of Mayors – Europe signatories, keeping you informed about the latest developments of the Covenant of Mayors initiative in Europe and its related events.

Who has access to your information?

The data collected in the online restricted area is managed by the Covenant of Mayors – Europe Office. The European Commission’s Directorate-General for Energy and Joint Research Centre will have access to the required data for the monitoring and evaluation purposes. We will not communicate your personal information to third parties unless you grant us permission to do so.

  • Whenever you are asked to fill in your profile on the restricted area, look for the box that you can tick to indicate that you want this information to appear on the Covenant of Mayors - Europe website.
  • If you have previously agreed to display your personal information, you may change your mind at any time by unchecking the corresponding box(es).

Please make sure to inform us of your wishes for each contact detail you share with us.

How can you modify or delete your personal information?

You may update or delete your data and contact details at any time. You just need to login into the extranet and accordingly change your profile (under “My account” > “My team”).
