Our Privacy Policy


The Centre of Excellence in Energetic Materials (CoEEM) supports a community of professionals via the provision of the CoEEM portal (https://www.coeem.org). The portal is run by Cranfield University on behalf of CoEEM, at its School of Defence and Security based at the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom at Shrivenham.

Personal Privacy

Protecting your personal data and privacy is important to us. The personal information you provide when registering will be used in the creation of your Centre of Excellence in Energetic Materials (CoEEM) account. We will give you control over your personal data. You will be able to update and amend this information within the CoEEM portal, choose what you wish to share with other members, register interest in content and opt into any associated communications based on your interests.

The value to the members of this service is to offer a secure portal where like-minded professionals are able to interact, discuss topics of interest, and seek out appropriate facilities or expertise in their fields of interest.

To improve the service CoEEM may use anonymised sets of member's data to identify trends, the need for enhanced investment, training, research and development within strategic areas. You may choose to opt out of your data being used in this way by amending your preferences. However, in doing so the long term benefit of the portal to you and other members may diminish. Using anonymised data in this way allows us to develop the portal in line with your needs and those of the community.
