The Center processes the expression of interest data for a specific program to update you about this program. For example, the information includes:

  • availability of the program or related Center programs,
  • employment opportunities for the graduates or trainees of the program or related Center programs, and
  • events related to the program.

  • availability of all or some of the Center’s programs,
  • employment opportunities for the graduates or trainees in the Center’s programs, and
  • events regarding the Center’s mission.


Legal basis of processing

The processing of your participation data is carried out in accordance with the provision of art. 6 par. 1 subclause b. of GDPR (EU) 2016/679, in which the processing is necessary for a contractual agreement to which the data subject is a party or to take measures at the request of the data subject prior to the agreement.

The processing of the expression of interest data is based on consent in accordance with the provision of art. 6 par. 1 subclause a of the GDPR (EU) 2016/679. This consent is free, as the trainees may not consent without the consequences of their refusal.


Your rights

  • You have the right to access the personal data you have entered.
  • You have the right to correct inaccurate or untrue information about you.
  • You have the right to restrict the processing of your personal data when the accuracy of the data is disputed or illegal or the Center no longer needs the personal data for processing purposes.
  • You have the right to object, and you can object at any time for reasons related to your situation, to the processing of your personal data. You can object to decision making by automated means and request that decisions be made by individuals and not just computers.
  • You have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of the expression of interest data at any time. Withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on that consent in the past.


Recipients of your data

For the personal data collected in this context, there is no need for transmission. However, the recipients of the data may be the competent Services of the Ministry of Education, the National Statistical Service, the National Authority for Higher Education (NAHE), for which the University is obliged to publish and send statistics. In these cases, the data will be anonymous.

Public Authorities that may receive personal data in the context of a specific investigation are not considered recipients as defined in art. 4 par. 9 of EU 2016/679.


Processing time

Participation data is kept for as long as the services are provided to you and for as long as its retention is required by law in the context of the mission and activities of the Center. It is pointed out that data related to the control of public expenditure is kept for 20 years.

Expression of interest data is retained until you withdraw your expression of interest by replying to any of the relevant emails sent to you.


Data protection from third parties

If it is deemed necessary a third party to process your data (e.g., support of the website by a technical company), we ensure that the obligation of confidentiality and protection on the part of the third party is contractually recorded. No data is sold or shared with third parties for any reason.


Policy Review

We may amend this policy from time to time. If we make any important changes in the way we use your personal data we will notify you by sending you an email to all the email addresses you have provided or by posting a prominent notice on our webpage. However, you should check this policy periodically for any amendments.
