Purpose of GDPR policy
The publisher, European Open Science, based at 71–75 Shelton Street, Covent Garden, London, WC2H 9JQ, United Kingdom aims to regulate GDPR Policy in order to keep authors informed of how we collect, use, share, secure, and process their personal data.
The data controller for the purpose of this policy is the publisher.
How we collect data
In order to complete our main professional purpose - to publish your articles, the publisher is only collecting authors’ names, surnames, affiliations, and e-mail addresses as personal data information.
How we use data
The author’s name, surname, and affiliation are collected with the purpose of differentiating authors and their manuscripts from other authors as well as giving credit to authors who publish their work. Each author is aware that by submitting the manuscript he will be announced as the author of a certain published article and takes credit for his/her scientific contributions.
The purpose of collecting the author’s e-mail address is simply for correspondence. From the moment of the article’s submission until its publication, we are in need to be in constant touch with the Corresponding author, or in his absence with other co-authors. Every step in our publication process is followed by a notification that is sent to the Corresponding author and authors have disposal right to reach out to the publisher by sending an email at any time. Therefore, our whole correspondence is through e-mail.
How we disclose data
Only the publisher has access to authors’ names, surnames, and e-mail addresses.
How we store data
The author’s data is saved in our online system where authors submit their manuscripts, and they have constant access to it. Authors’ personal data is not exported anywhere outside of the system. The time duration of storing data is unlimited due to the fact that our published articles stay in our archive and are published on the website forever.
The data subject’s rights
Authors of the manuscripts have several rights due to their data storage (the right to access, the right to be forgotten, and the right to object). The right to access: each author can any time access their manuscript registrations and edit uploaded data. On the author’s request, while withdrawing the manuscript, the author can rise a request of deleting his personal data from the system. In that case, the publisher will delete the author’s profile from the system as well as decline the submission. The right to object gives the author competence to object to any changes made during the Galley Proof version and the publisher is obliged to comply with the author’s instructions.
How to complain
The supervisory authority in charge of executing the author’s rights stated in GDPR Policy is the publisher. In case of any GDPR violations please contact us on our e-mail address: email@example.com.
The publisher remains to preserve the right of any modifications regarding GDPR Policy and liability to notify the authors via publication on our website.
