EUN Partnership is dedicated to respecting the privacy of the TeachUP website users. Our intention is to provide a secure and safe environment for all users. The following statement outlines the policies by which the TeachUP website collects, manages, and uses the personal data provided to us by users, and how users of the platform may exercise their rights.
1. What Personal Data do We Collect via the website?
Participation in Surveys/Questionnaires
When you visit our website, you may be invited to participate in surveys or questionnaires launched by the TeachUP project, or you may choose to contact us directly via e-mail. If you choose to contact us directly, we will only use the personal data you have provided to us for the purposes of responding to your message.
Surveys/questionnaires will include their own privacy statements which will describe the type of personal data we will collect in the survey (for example, name, surname, e-mail address, photographs, etc), the purpose of the processing, who will have access to the data and the period of time for which the data will be kept.
Please note that we use third parties to process these surveys or questionnaires (Survey Monkey) and this processing may additionally be subject to the third party's own terms and conditions and privacy statement which will be indicated in the survey document.
Your data will not be retained beyond the duration of the project, except in an anonymised form, or insofar as required to show that we've performed this project in accordance with applicable laws and the EU's audit regulations.
Other forms of Collection
What are cookies?
A cookie is a small text file that a website saves on your computer or mobile device when you visit the site. It enables the website to remember your actions and preferences (such as login, language, font size and other display preferences) over a period of time, so you don't have to keep re-entering them whenever you come back to the site or browse from one page to another.
On our site, we only use a very limited number of cookies, for the following purposes:
- User preferences: These cookies help to improve a user's experience of a website by providing a more personalised service, without having to ask you every time again; more specifically, our Liferay Portal stores a limited number of user preferences, such as language and session id.
How to control cookies?
You can control and/or delete cookies as you wish – for details, see aboutcookies.org. You can delete all cookies that are already on your computer and you can set most browsers to prevent them from being placed. If you do this, however, you may have to manually adjust some preferences every time you visit a site and some services and functionalities may not work.
3. Site security
