SPECIFIC PRIVACY STATEMENT – EMA Community Portal
As the Commission service collects and further processes personal data, it is subject to Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2018 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data by the Union institutions, bodies, offices and agencies and on the free movement of such data, and repealing Regulation (EC) No 45/2001 and Decision No 1247/2002/EC (Text with EEA relevance).
The Directorate-General for Education, Culture, Youth and Sport (DG EAC) is in charge of the Erasmus+ International Credit Mobility (ICM). Over the years more than 700 000 people have benefited from the programme. Being able to contact past and present beneficiaries enables the Commission to conduct surveys and follow their careers, thus assessing the impact of the programme in the long term. Such assessment is both an obligation, and a useful policy tool, allowing the programme to improve. It also allows registered users to network amongst themselves.
Who has access to your personal data and to whom is it disclosed?
To some extent, other EMA members will be able to see your basic profile information and other relevant information you chose to make public. Access to your personal data is granted to a very small number of European Commission personnel, and to the relevant staff of the appointed EC service provider, for the purpose of managing the EMA online community portal. Your data will not be communicated to any third party unless you provide specific written request / consent for this (e.g. in the context of your participation in a specific event or activity organised or co-organised by EMA).
How do we protect and safeguard your information?
The collected personal data is saved on servers of an external IT company acting as a data processor under contract for the European Commission (EC). The company shall act only on instructions from the European Commission; shall comply with the obligations set out in the Regulation (EU) 2018/1725.
