Your registration

Identity information = given name(s), family name(s), date and place of birth. This information is meant to verify that a given natural person registers once, and once only, and that therefore the platform maintains the principle "1 person = 1 vote". This Identity Information will be kept strictly confidential, and will be disclosed only to three existing members of the platform, randomly selected upon your registration (the Verifiers). Their duty will be (1) to verify the correspondence between the Identity Information that you are about to write below, and those of one of your official ID documents, of which you will send them a copy directly by e-mail, without using the present on-line platform, (2) once this verification is performed, to destroy all copies of this official identity document from their computer, and to report to you accordingly. In compliance with our Terms of Use, your Identity Information will never be made visible to the other members on the platform. It will never be transmitted nor sold to anyone, except following a legal requirement.

Please fill in the Identity Information fields below with great care. Reproduce all characters appearing on your official ID documents. A discrepancy of one single character will suffice for the Verificators to refuse your registration!

  • Given name(s), as it(they) appear(s) on your official identity documents
  • Family name(s), as it(they) appear(s) on your official identity documents
  • Date of birth
  • Place of birth (city or municipality + country if relevant), as it appears on your official identity documents

Please do not select anything if you do not want to communicate this information.

Given name(s), as it(they) appear(s) on your official identity documents

Family name(s), as it(they) appear(s) on your official identity documents

Place of birth (city or municipality + country if relevant), as it appears on your official identity documents

Please choose the pseudonym that will identify you for the whole duration of your activity on the platform. We STRONGLY recommend that you select a pseudonym that makes tracking back to your real identity impossible (or extremely difficult). Thereby, you protect the confidentiality of your political opinions (i.e. personal data that are the purpose of a specific protection under the General Data Protection Regulation - GDPR) against any form of external pressure in real life (e.g. by your employer or your customers). Be very careful! Once you have chosen it, you will NEVER be able to change this pseudonym afterwards. Choose it with care!

The data of the platform of the CosmoPolitical Cooperative is stored in the European Union, and follows its privacy rules protecting personal data (General Data Protection Regulation - GDPR).

The CosmoPolitical Cooperative commits never to sell or transmit the personal data of its Members or Observers, nor any data related to their activity on the platform, to any third party, except when requested by the legal authorities under mandate by a judge.
