Privacy Policy

The DATAMITE project is committed to protecting your privacy and is developing technology that gives you the most powerful and safe online experience. This Statement of Privacy applies to the website of the DATAMITE HEurope project (Grant Agreement No 101092989) and governs data collection and usage. The Website falls under the responsibility of the DATAMITE Consortium and is concerned with the dissemination and exchange of information about the research conducted in the course of the project and the outcome of this work. By using the DATAMITE Website, you consent to the data practices described in this statement.

1. Policy scope

This Privacy Policy applies to this Website – – regardless of whether you use a computer, mobile phone, tablet, TV or another device.

2. Personal data that this website collects provided by you and how we use it

Unless stated otherwise in detail in the relevant sections of the Website, Personal Data generated from the use of our Website is processed as follows:

(i) Contact via electronic mail (e-mail)

Should you choose to communicate with us via email, we invite you to provide your name and mailing address. Please note that your name and mailing address is the only data we collect required for the specified purpose. Without this information, we cannot answer your message and address it to you personally. The legal basis for processing Personal Data for the purposes set out in this Section 2 is art. 6(1)(b) of GDPR as the processing is necessary to respond to requests from the interested party.

(ii) Social Media

Some of our web pages use social plug-ins from other organisations (such as Twitter’s retweet function). These other organisations may receive and use personal data about your visit to our sites or apps. If you browse our Website or view content on our apps, the information they collect may be connected to your account on their site. Please read their privacy policies for more information on how these organisations use personal data.

(iii) Site visitation tracking

For statistical reasons, we use Google Analytics (GA) to track user interaction. We use this data to determine the number of people using our site, to understand better how they find and use our web pages and to see their journey through the website.

Although GA records data such as your geographical location, device, internet browser and operating system, none of this information personally identifies you to us. Your computer’s IP address is anonymised by GA services and cannot be used to identify you personally. We consider Google to be a third party.

GA uses cookies, details of which can be found on Google’s developer guides. For your information, our Website uses the analytics.js implementation of GA. Disabling cookies on your internet browser will stop GA from tracking any part of your visit to pages within this website.

3. How we store your personal data

If you submit your contact details via the preferred email message, the only personal data that will be stored is the name and email address we receive from you. We will not share your contact details with anyone and will be securely stored by DATAMITE with access only by authorised personnel. This is currently the only occasion where this Website will store personal data.

We utilise state-of-the-art technology to store your data. For example, the following safeguards are used to protect your personal data from misuse or any form of unauthorised processing:

  • Access to personal data is restricted to a limited number of authorised persons for the stated purposes.
  • The IT systems processing data are technically isolated from other systems to prevent unauthorised access and hacking.
  • Access to these IT systems is constantly monitored to detect and prevent misuse in the early stages.

4. How long will we keep your personal data 

We will keep your personal information only for as long as it is relevant and useful for the intended purpose for which it was originally collected or as required by law.

5. Cookies and third-party cookies 

Cookies are small text files that websites can use to make a user’s experience more efficient. Our Website does not collect any cookies apart from the necessary ones. 

You reserve the right to set up your browser to warn you before accepting cookies, or you can simply set it to refuse them, although you may not have access to this website’s features if you do so. See your browser’s ‘help’ button for how you can do this. You do not need cookies to use or navigate many parts of this Website. Remember that if you use different computers in different locations, you must ensure that each browser is adjusted to suit your cookie preferences.

6. Data breaches 

We will report any unlawful data breach of your data within 72 hours of the breach if it is apparent that personal data stored in an identifiable manner has been stolen.

Right to erasure (right to be forgotten):

You have the right to request the deletion of your personal data when we process it with your consent or to protect our legitimate interests. In all other cases (such as where there is a contract, obligation to process personal data legally required, or public interest), this right is subject to specific restrictions or shall not exist, as the case may be.

Right to restriction of processing:

You have the right to request a restriction of the processing of your personal data in the following cases: a) when the accuracy of the personal data is contested and until the accuracy is verified, b) when you oppose the deletion of your personal data and request the restriction of their use instead, c) when personal data are not needed for processing purposes, they are however required for the establishment, exercise, or defence of legal claims, and (d) when you object to the processing and the decision on your objection to processing is pending.

Right to object to processing:

You have the right to object at any time to processing your personal data where, as described above, the processing is based on the legitimate interests we pursue as data controllers and for the purposes of direct marketing and consumer profiling, if applicable.

Right to data portability:

You have the right to receive your personal data free of charge in a format that allows you to access, use, and edit them with commonly used editing methods. You also have the right to ask us, in case it is technically feasible, to transmit the data directly to another controller. Your right to do so exists for the data you provided and is processed by automated means based on your consent or for the execution of a relevant contract.

Right to withdraw your consent:

In cases where processing is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw it without affecting the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
