SHERPA PRIVACY STATEMENT
SHERPA complies with the General Data Protection Regulation and Privacy legislation. Find out below what
this means in practices…
We are using cookies on the website to facilitate browsing on the website. During your session we temporarily stored your IP address. This information will only be used for the consultation statistics.
For the subscription to our newsletter, we collect your email address. This is used only for the purpose of sending you the newsletter and related statistics. We will also collect other data (country, position, organization and type of stakeholder) for research purposes. Your contact details will not be used in any other context without asking your consent before.
We consider that it is in your legitimate interest so that you can read our news without having to provide us with your contact details every month. Each newsletter also gives you the right to unsubscribe.
Your data is processed securely: we use various technologies and security measures to properly protect your data against unauthorised access, use, loss or disclosure. Where necessary, these technologies and measures
are tested and adapted at regular intervals.
In accordance with the GDPR, we only use servers that are internal or located in Europe and that comply with the regulations in force in the European Union since 25 May 2018. In addition, personal information
stored in paper form is only accessible to those who need it to perform the requested service. Your personal data will be kept only until the end of the contractual obligation (3 years after the end of the project).
In the event of an uncontrolled data leak, we are committed to informing anyone affected by the leak and to do all that is necessary to repair the system as soon as possible.
We never share your data with third parties for commercial purposes.
We also apply the principle of information. This means that, anyone who provides personal data is invited to read the present statement before providing any information.
You may, at any time, request access to your personal data as mentioned in the next paragraph.
Your rights regarding the storage of your personal data
You can, at any time, consult the personal data that the SHERPA team keeps on you and, if necessary, request correction or deletion (if your data is not necessary for the performance of the contract) of all or part of your data. In this case, please contact us at email@example.com. You also have the right to be forgotten and therefore request the complete deletion of your data in the event that its storage is not part of a contractual or legal obligation. To do so, send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org.
With regards to the newsletter, you have the possibility to access your personal data directly via the registration system on the website as well as the possibility to unsubscribe directly via the address: email@example.com
Organisations have an obligation to respond to any request to consult, modify or delete your personal data within thirty days. However, this period may be renewed if the request concerns a large amount of data. In
any case, you will be informed as soon as possible of the time required for processing the request.
What to do in case of a complaint or question?
The project team is available for any questions or access requests via firstname.lastname@example.org
If you believe that your data is being processed incorrectly, please do not hesitate to inform us.
As a last resort, you also have the possibility to file a complaint with the data protection authority (formerly the Privacy Commission). This is the Belgian body that oversees the application of the GDPR throughout
Belgium. https://www.autoriteprotectiondonnees.be Do not hesitate to contact us to learn more about our personal data processing policy.
