ENQA maintains the following databases:
- Members and affiliates
- The database for members and affiliates includes information on the organisation, including its profile and activities, as well as contact details (name, email address, and position) of relevant personnel. The above-mentioned public information is available on the ENQA website. Further information pertaining to affiliates (including that which is collected during the application procedure, such as funding sources and motivations for seeking affiliation) is stored for internal use by the ENQA Secretariat, Board, and General Assembly.
- The database for contacts contains a record of ENQA’s working group members, main stakeholders, and the contact information for ENQA’s members and affiliates, which includes the contact details (name, email address, and position) of relevant personnel. Individuals included in this database authorise ENQA to contact them on matters relating to the association’s work.
- Pool of experts
- The pool of experts contains a record of current or potential reviewers for ENQA Agency Reviews. It includes the reviewer’s name, email address, professional profile, nationality, language competences, gender, expertise, nominating organisation, review history, and additional information submitted voluntarily by the reviewer and contained in the reviewer’s CV. Reviewers are contacted for matters relating to ENQA Agency Reviews.
For each of the above-mentioned databases, it is the responsibility of the contacts to inform the ENQA Secretariat (email@example.com) when the information should be updated or removed altogether.
- ENQA has separate mailing lists for members, affiliates, partners, the ENQA newsletter, and ENQA events. Mailing lists for members, affiliates, and partners include the contact details (name, email address, and position) of each organisation’s relevant personnel. These lists are stored and managed by the ENQA Secretariat and are used to send information that is targeted to ENQA members, affiliates, and/or partners.
The mailing lists for ENQA’s newsletter and events contain at least the name and email address of each subscriber. Subscribers of the ENQA newsletter and events mailing lists, when subscribing, may opt to include additional information such as their organisation and position therein. Subscribers of the newsletter and events mailing lists have the right and possibility to unsubscribe from the mailing lists through an “unsubscribe” link at the bottom of each email. Alternatively, users can email the ENQA Secretariat at: firstname.lastname@example.org to be removed from the lists. The newsletter and events mailing lists are stored and updated via Mail Chimp and used for those wishing to receive the ENQA newsletter, and for those wishing to be informed of upcoming ENQA events, respectively.
ENQA collects and stores information concerning the participants of its events, including – where relevant – the participant’s name, nationality, passport number, organisation, position, invoice address, email, phone number, fax number, VAT number, dietary information, IP address, and login information.
