Privacy Policy


The new European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation – a legal framework that sets guidelines for the collection and processing of personal information of individuals within the European Union (EU) – is in effect as of May 25, 2018. The GDPR is intended to provide better protection for the EU citizen’s privacy and to lay down uniform rules so that the citizen gains more control over how his/her personal data are used.

In view of the above, the European Doctoral Programmes Association in Management and Business Administration (EDAMBA) has updated its privacy policy, which sets out how EDAMBA uses and protects any information that individuals may provide when visiting its website. EDAMBA is strongly committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected.

  • 1. to announce and manage EDAMBA activities;

  • 3. to perform administrative tasks and communicate with members

The information provided is stored for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it is collected and will be used for the purposes stated when the information is requested. Personal information will not be sold to third parties or provided to any other organisation without permission.

How can you control your data (correct, update or delete it)?

EDAMBA makes it possible for you to have control over your own personal information by enabling & regularly reminding you to keep your personal profile up-to-date and correct.
