REA privacy policy and social media use

General information

On this page we provide you with information on how your personal data is processed. In addition, please consult the general legal notice, the privacy notice of the website and the public register of processing activities.


When subscribing to our newsletters you accept the REA newsletter privacy statement.

Social Media

We use social media to present our work through widely used and contemporary channels. We follow the European Commission’s social media moderation policy.  

You can access REA’s accounts on social media platforms directly from our website. In order to protect your privacy, our social media buttons or components to connect to those services do not set cookies when our web pages are loaded on your device, nor you are immediately redirected to social media websites. 

Each social media channel has their own policy on the way they process your personal data when you access their sites. For example, if you choose to watch one of the videos on YouTube, you will be asked for explicit consent to accept YouTube cookies; if you look at our activity on Twitter, you will be asked for explicit consent to accept Twitter cookies; the same applies for our presence on LinkedIn.   

If you have any concerns or questions about their use of your personal data, you should carefully read their privacy policies before using them. The use of social media by REA, including Twitter and LinkedIn, does not in any way imply endorsement of Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, Instagram and/or their privacy policy. 

The ideas and views expressed by REA on social media are for information purposes only. No communication through social media shall be deemed to constitute legal or official notice on behalf of REA or the European Commission. REA follows some Twitter users. However, being followed by REA does not imply endorsement of any kind. REA reserves the right to not reply individually to messages or comments received on social media.
