The protection of personal data is an important commitment for the CollectionCare project. The entry into force of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 “Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data” (hereinafter “GDPR”), which entered into effect in May of 2018, has provided the opportunity to further adapt the activities carried out by the project to the principles of transparency and protection of personal data, in compliance with the fundamental rights and freedoms of all stakeholders.
Also, according to Regulation (EU) 2016/679 it is mandatory that every corporation that handles personal data must have a data protection officer (DPO). The CollectionCare project being led by the Universitat Politècnica de València, its DPO is Ricard Martínez Martínez with e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org .
