INFORMATION ON THE PROCESSING OF CANDIDATE RESEARCHERS’ PERSONAL DATA
– The Non-Profit Organization under the name “Research Centre for the Humanities (RCH)” has already published its 7th Public Call for the submission of research proposals at a post-doc level to be pursued in 2022, by which it invites candidate researchers to submit their proposals by completing an online application. In this context, RCH informs all the candidates, who will submit their proposals about the following with regard to the processing of their personal data:
– RCH processes personal data in accordance with EU Regulation 2016/679 as well as the relevant European and national legislation on the protection of personal data in force.
– The personal data of the candidates which are being processed by RCH are all these contained in the online application and the purpose of the processing is the evaluation of the research project, on the basis of the terms and conditions of the aforementioned Public Call.
– The legal basis for the processing of the aforementioned data is the consent of each candidate, by the completion of a specific field in the online application.
– The recipients of the aforementioned personal data are, during their collection, the RCH’s competent employees for such a process, who are bound by confidentiality and personal data protection clauses. The aforementioned personal data are transmitted for the purpose of the evaluation of each research project a) to RCH’s Board and General Assembly’s members and b) if the proposed research project is awarded in the second round of assessment, to special scientists both in Greece and abroad for further evaluation, who are also bound by a duty of confidentiality and protection. In the latter case, if some of these scientists are based in non-EU countries (third countries), RCH shall transmit the data to them only if the European Commission has taken an “adequacy decision” for each of these countries or only if these scientists sign with RCH a relevant agreement with contractual clauses drafted by the European Commission.
– RCH implements appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure an adequate level of security against the risk of loss of the aforementioned personal data or unauthorized use or access to them.
– The aforementioned personal data are stored in a physical or digital form both from RCH and the aforementioned evaluators (special scientists in Greece and abroad) for a period of three (3) years strictly for the aforementioned purpose and also in order to let RCH know whether the candidate has submitted a proposed research project on the same topic in the last 2 years (application for a third consecutive year may be submitted, but with a different research topic), as provided for in RCH’s Public Calls. Afterwards, these data are deleted, unless Union or Greek law requires their storage (for example for the legal and judicial protection of RCH).
– Every candidate is free to exercise all of his/her rights under EU Regulation 2016/679 and, in particular, the right to withdraw consent, right of access, restriction, rectification, erasure, right to data portability, right to complaint before the competent authority (Personal Data Protection Authority www.dpa.gr ), as well as the right to object, upon request.
– For any information or queries regarding the above or for the exercise of the foregoing rights, please contact the email address firstname.lastname@example.org or the phone number 210-3640424
