For which purposes we treat data?

We treat personal information when thinking about all rights of the people and always in proportion. This means that the data may require adequate, relevant and limited compliance with the explicit purpose that motivated the acquisition; only the data necessary to enable the provision of educational services is our mission. In some cases, more data are required, for example to find out opinions or assessments of our services. Then the answers are treated statistically and is decoupled from the data identifying the person who answers.

Blanquerna Foundation is primarily for personal data for academic management, information about activities and services and customer services. No data received will be used for any purposes incompatible with those listed.

Academic management. Blanquerna Foundation records the data of the people who pre-register and then register, in order to let the record and, based on this, provide educational services of higher education. The data provided and the resulting academic ability to track and serve as the basis for evaluation. The management of the transcript of the student is the most important data processing. The student data are also used for purposes of administration, identifying them as service users, to facilitate access to these services, send information of interest, processing and issuing titles, and finally made monitoring of employment.

Recruitment. Collect and guard the resumes we addressed those interested in working with us, and also we treat personal information in the development process of recruitment, in order to analyze the adequacy of the profile of the candidates on the basis of vacancies or new creation. Our approach is kept for a maximum of one year data also people who do not end up being contracted for short term there is a new vacancy or new job. However, in the latter case, immediately delete data if you ask the person concerned.

This relationship involves other treatments, such data include accounting, billing or send information to the tax authorities.

How do we get the data?

In most cases the data comes directly from stakeholders and obtain mainly through the forms prepared for this purpose. We get also open days in the briefings we make in schools and through participation in trade fairs where we present our offer.
In developing the relationship with the students, the teachers and service providers to generate other data that are incorporated into the systems of Blanquerna Foundation.
A limited volume of data may come from public authorities responsible for higher education and other academic institutions.

What is the legal legitimacy for the treatment of the data?Cuál es la legitimación legal para el tratamiento de los datos?

Data processing that we perform have different legal bases, depending on the nature of each treatment. We classify the main data processing we make following the legal basis of Article 6.1 of the General Data Protection Regulation.

For the provision of educational services. Once our students get admitted Blanquerna Foundation services Educational services the student is a contractual relationship with obligations of each party, the right of students to receive a good education and the right and obligationBlanquerna Foundation treat your data. This treatment has its legal basis in Law 6/2001 of 23 December, on universities, the Law 1/2003 of 19 February universities in Catalonia and its implementing regulations.

In accordance with a pre relationship. This is the case of the data of people interested in the teaching offer of Blanquerna Foundation. But other reasons similar legitimacy, treat the data potential customers and suppliers with whom we have relationships prior to the signing of a contract. It is also the case of the data processing people who have sent us their resume or participating in selection processes.

Pursuant to a contract. Case relationships with our customers and suppliers and all actions and uses data that these business relationships entail.

In compliance with legal requirements. The provision of higher education determines who we fulfill different rules involving data processing. In this regard, the Blanquerna Foundation reports data of his students at the University Ramon Llull Foundation, procedures for recognition and issuance of securities corresponding to the courses taught. It is also in compliance with legal obligations (tax laws) that communicate data to the tax authorities. It would also be in compliance with legal obligations that data will inform courts or bodies and security forces if required.

Based on consent. When we send information about our activities and services we use contact with the explicit consent of the person who will receive. It is also based on the consent we obtain navigation data of the person who visits our site, you consent may be revoked at any time by uninstalling cookies.

For legitimate interest. The images we obtain the surveillance cameras are treated the legitimate interests of our institution to preserve its assets and facilities. Our legitimate interest justifies also treating the data we get from contact forms, as well as people who register to comment on blog.

Who communicate data?

As a general rule only communicate data on legal compliance obligations. In the previous sections we explained our data communications students needed to make possible the provision of educational services, and our customers and suppliers in the development of economic and trade relations. The contact details of students can be disclosed to other institutions of our group as long as the student has authorized.

Data transfers take place outside the European Union (international transfer) for the management of international mobility of students and to respond to job offers for non-European companies. In both cases the treatment is based on the consent of the student.

In another sense, certain tasks to get the services of companies or individuals that contribute their experience and expertise, which sometimes have access to personal data. Under the terms of the General Data Protection Regulation is not an actual transfer of data but a custom treatment. Only companies that are contracted services ensure compliance with this regulation. When hiring formalized its confidentiality obligations and monitors their performance. It may be the case of hosting services data servers, or computer support services to law firms, accounting or tax.

How long do we keep the data?

The data retention time is determined by different factors. Affects mainly the preserve that data continue to be required to meet the purposes for which they were collected in each case. Secondly preserved to address potential liabilities for the treatment of data by Blanquerna Foundation, and to meet any requirement of the government or the courts.

Consequently the data to be kept for the time necessary to preserve its legal value or information to prove compliance and legal obligations, but not for a period than is necessary for the purposes of treatment ( "limitation period preservation "requirement of the General data Protection Regulation). In the case of information that certifies the training received by students data are kept permanently preserving the rights of these students.

In certain cases, such as data contained in the records and billing, tax law requires keep them until they prescribe responsibilities in this matter. Regulatory foundations specifies certain details of accounting nature will remain ten years (compliance with Law 10/2010 of 28 April).

If the data are treated exclusively based on the consent of the person concerned are kept until this person does not revoke this consent.

Finally, in the case of images taken by surveillance cameras is kept for a month at most, although in the case of incidents that are kept justify the time necessary to facilitate the activities of bodies and security forces or judicial organs.

The regulations governing the preservation of public documents and the opinions of the qualifying commissions are a benchmark in determining when deciding to maintain or deletion of data.
