Categories of personal data being processed and their purpose:
E-mail addresses: The website we have built is for people to find information regarding the WINC project. Additionally, based on the users’ consent, we give them the option to send us their email address in case they would like to receive more information about the project. We will put those e-mail addresses in a small database to distribute important updates, if any. Once the project ends we will erase the database and delete the account. The intention of gathering emails is purely for dissemination purposes and we will not process the emails in any other way.
Others: This site is build on Google Sites. Learn about Google’s privacy practices and how Google uses data on partner sites.

Notwithstanding the obligations incumbent on UPC based on legally binding provisions, UPC will never intentionally reveal personal data allowing the deduction of your identity to any third parties, including your e-mail address, without your prior consent or other legal basis.

Your personal data is stored in computer servers located at the place of our headquarters and on the hosting company of the website www.winc-project.eu. Our hosting company is Google Sites.
When we collect and use your personal data, you have a number of rights that you can exercise as described below.
You have the right to access your personal data, which means that you can ask us to provide you with information about the personal data we have about you. You can even request a copy of your personal data.
You have the right to ask us to correct your personal data if you can prove that the personal data we process about you is incorrect, incomplete or out of date. Please specify the context in which we use your personal data (e.g. to send you newsletters or to respond to a request), so that we can assess your request quickly and accurately.
If we have asked for your consent to the collection and use of your personal data, for example to send you newsletters, you have the right to withdraw this previously given consent.
You can ask us to delete your personal data if it is no longer necessary for the purposes for which it was collected, if its collection was unlawful or if you have successfully exercised your right to withdraw your consent or your right to object to the processing of your personal data. Where any of these circumstances apply, we will delete your personal data immediately unless we are prohibited from deleting your personal data by law, regulatory obligations or administrative or court orders.
When we process your personal data on the basis of our own legitimate interests, (i.e. processing of IP addresses for cybersecurity reasons), you have the right to object to our processing of your personal data. However, we will ask you to describe your particular situation giving rise to the request. We must then balance your situation against our interests. If this balancing exercise results in your situation outweighing our interests, we will stop processing your personal data.
