  • Your name;
  • Your contact details, such as your e-mail address; and/or
  • Other personal data entailed in content which you provide to us or which is created in cooperation with you for the website.

We may use cookies on this website which may lead to the processing of personal data, such as your IP-address. You can find more information in the Cookie Policy of this website.

On the basis of which legal processing grounds and for which purposes do we process your personal data?

We process your personal data on the basis of one or more of the following legal processing grounds:

  1. If this is necessary for the performance of an agreement to which you are a party or to perform precontractual acts at your request;
  2. If this is necessary to comply with statutory obligations;
  3. If this is necessary to justify our legitimate interests or the interests of a third party; and/or
  4. Your consent.

If we process your personal data based on your consent, we will ask you for it separately. You may withdraw your consent at any time. We draw your attention to the fact that the withdrawal of your consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing of your personal data prior to the withdrawal of your consent.

We use the above personal data for the purposes stated below, in respect of which we have indicated for each purpose based on which of the abovementioned legal processing grounds (a through d) we do so. If the processing is based on the principle of ‘legitimate interest’, we briefly explain this interest. If you have any specific questions in this respect, please do not hesitate to contact us. Purposes with corresponding processing grounds:

  • to provide information about the CoCART project and its participants (a, b and c: to be able to provide information about the CoCART project, d);
  • to be able to deal with any complaints and disputes about the website (a, b and c: to defend rights, to maintain and improve existing relationships by means of proper handling of complaints, to improve the quality of the website and the information provided);
  • to maintain contact and communicate with you; (a, c: the interest in keeping you informed about the CoCART project, d);

  • to comply with our legal and statutory obligations (b, c: the interest of being able to meet these obligations).

To whom do we provide your personal data?

We do not provide your personal data to third parties (‘recipients’ within the meaning of the applicable privacy legislation), unless this is necessary for the proper performance of the purposes set out in this Privacy Statement, if the law requires us to do so or if you have provided your consent to this end.

The third parties to whom the personal data are made available are obliged to handle your personal data confidentially. If these parties qualify as a ‘data processor’ within the meaning of the applicable privacy legislation, we will ensure that a data processing agreement is concluded with these parties, which complies with the requirements included in the GDPR.

We can share personal data with:

  • Employees of EHA, EBMT, one of the coalition members or project leaders of the CoCART project;
  • Suppliers (for example our hosting provider);
  • Courts and government institutions; and/or
  • Other parties, such as regulators and other authorities where required by law or with your consent.

In order to provide our services, we may need to transfer your personal data to a recipient in a country outside the European Economic Area with a lower degree of protection of personal data than the European law offers. In that case, we will ensure that such a transfer of personal data is in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations, for example by concluding a model contract prepared and approved for that purpose by the European Commission and we will assess whether any additional measures are needed in order to ensure an adequate level of data protection, such as pseudonymisation or encryption.

How long do we retain your personal data?

We do not retain your personal data in an identifiable form for longer than is necessary to achieve the purposes included in this Privacy Statement.
