Asociación Social de la Tercera Edad de Jávea (U3A Javea)

U3A Javea collects the data submitted by you to the website and/or in writing in order to provide you with information about U3A Javea activities and membership information.

This means that we may hold your email address and name and any message that you have sent us, in order to be able to reply. That information is then kept for us to be able to make sure that any future request from you is dealt with efficiently. As an active and large association, the committee member tasked with processing your request may use an international email service such as Gmail or Hotmail to communicate with you. Both these services are committed to full compliance with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Unless the activity you have booked clearly states that specific information is required to book with an external service (for example a special menu request for a restaurant or a ticket for a trip) no information that you have provided will be shared with any third party without your express permission.

What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We collect your first and last names, your phone and mobile number in case of last minute unavoidable changes to trips and events where using email would not be adequate.

We collect your home address, if you wish to give it, because the U3A Javea wishes to foster a sense of community and caring amongst its members. If concerns are raised by other members that you may be unwell and in need of assistance when we may be able to help and we may need your address to contact you as a last resort. This would only be in exceptional circumstances and expressly authorised by the President.


When we upload images to the website, we avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. This is because visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.

We do not identify individuals in any photos we publish but if you do not wish any to be published that include you please advise the person taking the photos at the time, or if you see an image that you wish removed please contact

Contact forms

If you send us a contact form to make an enquiry it is sent to the President and copied to the Secretary and Vice President one of whom will reply you.

The email address you give on the form will not be stored but will be used only for giving any reply.
