During the General Assembly of IFLA EUROPE held in Oslo, Norway in October 2014, the President’s´ Council, with the full support of the General Assembly, agreed the need for a more cohesive Federation that is able to provide both its National Associations as well as its members opportunities to develop their capacities at European level.
The creation of the Members’ database establishes a completely new working and networking approach inside the Federation, without interfering with the professional databases existing in each country, nor with the relations between members and their NA. On the contrary, it strives to strengthen these by providing members with fuller services at an European level. The MDB (members’ database) also works transversally with other projects currently developed in IFLA EU which also strive to strengthen IFLA Europe’s services to its members as well as establishing a more cohesive European Federation.
IFLA EUROPE will manage the Federate members’ database in compliance with the Data Protection Directive 95/46/EC, respecting every country’s legislations passed upon the basis established by the previously mentioned directive, specifically articles 7 to 17 regarding consent, treatment, right of access, information, exemptions, restrictions, as well as security and confidentiality, remaining IFLA EUROPE THE EUROPEAN REGION OF IFLA INTERNATIONAL FEDERATION OF LANDSCAPE ARCHITECTS Avenue Louise 149/24 – 1050 Bruxelles ‐ Brussels (Belgium) firstname.lastname@example.org exempt from responsibility from the misuse of a third person, which is outside the control of IFLA EUROPE.
