Purpose – Why do we process your data?

University of Deusto stores and processes the data you supply to manage the EDI incubation process for promoting Big Data experimentation in Europe. As coordinator of EDI, University of Deusto will exclusively share the collected data with members of the EDI consortium, all of them based in Europe. Aggregated data about collected information regarding EDI incubation will be generated and published publicly. Only when EDI participants sign a contract with the consortium and receive funding from the project could their personal data be supplied to European Commission, since it is the funding body of the EDI project.

The legal basis to store, share and process your data is the informed consent obtained from you by ticking the box explicitly authorizing the University of Deusto to do so, according to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
