Whenever you use the DIONE website, you are bound by the applicable Personal Data Protection Policy; therefore, you should carefully read this text whenever you use the platform and make sure you accept it. At DIONE we pay special attention to security and respect the privacy and confidentiality of the users’ personal data. That is why we have invested time and resources to fully comply with the applicable national, European and international legal framework, and the European Union’s General Data Protection Regulation 679/2016. If you have any questions or concerns about how your personal information is handled, you may contact us at info@dione-project.eu. This Privacy Policy, together with the Terms and conditions posted on our website, set forth the general rules and policies governing your use of our website. Depending on your activities when visiting our website, you may be required to agree to additional terms and conditions.

Collection of Data through our website

You can use our website without disclosing your personal data. You are not required to provide personal information as a condition of using our site, except as may be necessary to provide you a service at your request. When you use our website, data may be stored for various security purposes. This data may include the name of your internet service provider, the web site that you used to link to our site, the web sites that you visit from our site and your IP-Address. This data could possibly lead to your identification, but we do not use it to do so. We do use the data from time to time for statistical purposes but maintain the anonymity of each individual user so that the person cannot be identified. In cases when personal data is provided to others to provide you products or services you have requested, or for other purposes, we rely on technical and organisational means to assure that applicable data security regulations are followed.

Collection and Processing of Personal Data

The personal data you enter anywhere on the DIONE website are subject to processing and are stored in a file under the responsibility of INOSENS, only for reasons relating to: a) the communication and dissemination of the DIONE Services, b) your account management and processing of your requests, c) the provision, with your consent, of information regarding the DIONE Services. Your personal data are not allowed to be used by any third party, except as provided by the law and this Policy. The DIONE website collects and processes information that is considered purely personal data, as well as other information that is not considered as such. The DIONE website does not collect or process sensitive personal data, namely, data related to a user’s health, sex life, sexual orientation, genetic or biometric data, or data revealing one’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs or membership in a trade union. When you sign up on the DIONE website, we collect the information you provide us, including your e-mail. The personal data (simple and not sensitive) we collect are automatically anonymized or at least pseudonymised and encrypted. The personal information we collect will be only used for the defined, explicit, and legitimate purposes explained to you and will not be further processed in a manner incompatible with those purposes. Moreover, we limit the collection to only that information that is appropriate, relevant and necessary for the purposes explained to you. If not required by law, we will not obtain your consent before collecting your personal data from third parties. Instead, it will be deemed that you have previously given such consent to any third party from whom the DIONE website receives such information.

Security of personal information

The DIONE website makes reasonable efforts to maintain your personal data, in accordance with the terms of this Personal Data Protection Policy and the Terms of Use. The DIONE website addresses the issue of protecting your anonymity and personal information very seriously. We protect your personal data and, in general, the information we receive about you, and we guarantee their confidentiality, integrity and availability using appropriate security measures, according to the most up-to-date and advanced technological methods. These measures include technical and procedural steps to protect your data from misuse, unauthorized access or disclosure, loss, alteration or destruction.
