Your registration

We thank you for your interest in the CosmoPolitical Cooperative, and congratulate you on your desire to get involved with us. Welcome!

To register as a full Cooperator, you need to do three things:

  1. have your identity verified, so that we can prevent the same person from registering several times with a different email address. In this way, we preserve the democratic principle of "1 person = 1 vote";
  2. buy at least one share in the Cooperative, at a unit price of 10 EUR. This share(s) will be refunded to you if you decide to leave the Co-operative one day, which we would regret;
  3. pay your annual membership fee to the Cooperative, according to the following rate: 5 EUR / month (60 EUR // year) for persons of a nationality of the European Union from before 2004 and aged 26 years or older, 2 EUR / month (24 EUR / year) for the others.

For identity verification, Identity Information means: first name(s), last name(s), date of birth. This Identity Information will be kept strictly confidential, and will only be revealed to 3 existing members of the Cooperative, drawn at random during your registration (the Verifiers). The Verifiers will be responsible for (1) verifying that the Identity Information you enter below matches a copy of your official identity document that you email directly to them or that you show to them in a virtual videoconference meeting, without using this platform, and (2) once verified, destroying any copy of that identity document from their computer and reporting back to you. In accordance with our Terms of Use, your Identity Information will never be made visible to other Cooperators. It will never be passed on or sold to anyone, except to fulfil a legal obligation.

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

This identity verification, and then the whole democratic life of the Cooperative, generates emails from our platform. Check your spam box! If our emails are there, tell your email client (Thunderbird, Outlook...) and your webmail service (GMail, Orange,...) that they are not spam and indicate our URL ( as trusted.

A separate email from our platform will tell you how to make the payment of your shares and annual fee (amount, IBAN bank account details).

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

What is the Member State of the European Union of which you are a citizen? Only citizens of the European Union can be members of the CosmoPolitical Cooperative.

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 very fact that a person is a member of the CosmoPolitical Cooperative is a political opinion, and as such protected by the GDPR, Art.9, as a "special category of personal data".

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.

The CosmoPolitical Cooperative does not display any part of the Identity Information (i.e. the given name(s), the family name(s), the date or place of birth) or the e-mail addresses of its members on its platform.

As a member of the CosmoPolitical Cooperative, you understand that you choose your publicly visible Pseudonym under your full responsibility, and that that the CosmoPolitical Cooperative cannot be held liable in case this Pseudonym enables third parties to track back to your real identity.

As a member of the CosmoPolitical Cooperative, you publish content on the platform under the conditions that:

The CosmoPolitical Cooperative is not liable for the content that is published on it. The platform systematically moderates content ex ante, and moderates it ex post upon notification by users.
