The PROTEIN project is an EU funded project that aims to to promote health and wellbeing. For this we will process personal data. The PROTEIN project is committed to protecting personal data and handling it with the utmost care in order to safeguard the privacy of those concerned. In this privacy statement you can read more about our guidelines for handling personal data, about questions and services you may request from us, and about our point of contact for further information regarding privacy and data protection within the project.
Which personal data is processed and why Personal data the PROTEIN project processes The project is responsible for processing large amounts of personal data: not just from students, the researchers and staff involved in the projcet, third party experts and visitors of our website and events, as well as data that is required to perform the academic research, within the purpose of the PROTEIN project.
We process this data either to fulfil the contractual requirements necessary to carry out the PROTEIN project granted by the European Commission and to perform research for which we ask consent of our participants. In principle, the personal data processed by the project has been disclosed to the PROTEIN project partners directly. This data is transferred pseudonymized to into the project database. Other project partners cannot identify individuals. However, it may also be the case that we received personal data from third parties. We collaborate with universities, research centres and (international) organisations located abroad and industry both inside and outside the EU.
Within the scope of such collaborative projects, it is possible for personal data to be disclosed to these third parties: naturally, this will always happen in compliance with all relevant privacy and data protection laws and regulations and the PROTEIN project will always strive for the shortest possible retention period of relevant data. Provision of data to third parties The project will not exchange personal data with third parties for financial gain.
Personal data that allows for a third party to trace an individual person will only be supplied to a third party when this is required by law; when this is necessary for the fulfilment of a contract with the data subject; or when the data subject has given his or her explicit, informed consent to the transfer of the data.. The project can instruct third parties to perform services for it, in which case the project will draw up an agreement in which it lays down the duties of the service provider with regard to the processing of personal data (a so-called “data processor agreement”). In this contract it is stipulated that the third party will handle any disclosed personal data confidentially, carefully, and in compliance with privacy legislation. Aside from the situations that have been specifically mentioned above, the project will not disclose personal data to third parties, unless required to do so by law. Subjects’ rights with regard to their personal data The “General Data Protection Regulation” (GDPR) is a European regulation which grants individuals rights with respect to the way their personal data is handled and protected. Individuals may, for example – depending on the legal basis for the processing of their personal data and dependent on the fulfilment of certain conditions – exercise a right to:
Inquire as to what personal data is processed and, when the data is provided to the project by a third party, inquire into the source of this information.
Request the correction of data insofar as it is incorrect.
Object to the processing of his or her data.
Know of the existence of possible automated decision making processes, and, when these are used to create profiles, inquire into the logic underlying these processes, the purposes they serve, and their consequences.
‘Be forgotten’ by an institution that has processed their personal data.
Each member state of the European Union has a competent national authority concerning privacy and data protection. This is the authority that monitors privacy law compliance and where any individual can file a complaint regarding privacy and the processing of personal data. In the link below you can find the relevant contacts for your country: https://edpb.europa.eu/about-edpb/board/members_en
Further questions regarding the different rights and obligations in the field of privacy can be directed to the Data Protection Officer (DPO) of the project partner that collected your data. Should you not know how your data came into the PROTEIN project, you can contact Audrey.firstname.lastname@example.org who is in charge of handing data protection within the project.
