About this activity

Your personal information is collected, shared, used and stored by individuals, organisations and public authorities every day. Recruitment activities, video surveillance and health data collection are just a few examples of this. It is the job of the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) to ensure that the European institutions and bodies respect your data protection rights when they process your personal data.

The EDPS stand will be at the European Parliament as part of the EU institutions' Europe Day celebrations.

Located on the first floor of the ASP building, next to meeting room 3G, EDPS staff will be on hand to answer questions about your privacy rights and how to protect your personal information. Free goodies and information will be on offer, as well as fun and interactive activities for both children and adults to enjoy. You will also have a chance to win one of 20 USB sticks, simply by taking part in our fun, simpleĀ quiz!

Whether shopping online, using a smartphone or applying for jobs, data protection affects us all, so be sure to visit us at our stand to find out more!


There will be colouring activities for children and our interactive activities are child-friendly
