We also inform you that you can change your mind and withdraw your consent at any time by writing to us at our postal or email address.

b. Fulfilment of the business or contractual relationship that we have with you as a client, supplier, student or a member of our personnel.

As a general rule, our organization does not disclose personal data to third parties, although in some cases this may be necessary:

If you are an associate, client, student or supplier, your personal data may be disclosed to third parties as required by law (e.g. tax authorities). The same is true in cases and organizations where it is necessary to provide our services and pay invoices (e.g. banking institutions).

In addition, as a member, student, client or supplier, your personal data may be processed by certain suppliers to whom we delegate some of our obligations (e.g. accounting consultants). All data processors have signed a data processing contract and have agreed to comply with the same security measures implemented by our organization, and to be subject to professional secrecy and confidentiality regarding the personal data processed, among other obligations in the area of personal data protection.

9. Security measures

Our organization has implemented all the necessary technical and organizational measures to protect the personal data processed and to prevent their loss, theft or unauthorized use.

These measures have been created based on the type of data processed and the purposes for which they are processed. These measures are regularly verified in our internal controls of data protection compliance and by external audits.

10. Rights of data subjects

You have the right to know whether your personal data are being processed by our organization; you therefore have the right to access your data, the right to rectification if they are inaccurate and the right to request their erasure when data are no longer necessary, provided this is legally possible.
