Privacy Policy


This Privacy statement describes what personal data the Co-Care project (2020-2022) gathers from you and when during your participation through the Co-Care platform, as well as through the optional 3rd Party Social Media registration. It also outlines how your data will be processed and stored. Moreover, it explains your rights regarding your personal data and indicates whom you can contact for more information or queries.

Rights with Respect of Your Personal Data
In the processing of personal data, the Co-Care project complies with the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016) and the applicable state regulations to each of its partners.
If you have questions about exercising your rights or you need assistance, please contact

Who is responsible for the processing of personal data?
Co-Care members are co-responsible for the processing of data obtained through this website. The list of project partners can be found here.

By what criteria do we treat personal data?
We treat the data lawfully (only when we have a legal basis that allows us to). We use them for specific, explicit and legitimate purposes that we explain when we obtain them. We treat only those that are appropriate, relevant and limited to what is necessary in each case. We strive to keep them up to date and keep them the time required, in compliance with the rules on the preservation of public information. We apply appropriate technical or organizational measures to prevent unauthorized or unlawful treatment, or its accidental loss, destruction or damage.

Who is the Data Protection Officer?
The Data Protection Officer (DPD) monitors compliance with data protection regulations, ensuring that the rights of individuals are protected. One of its functions is to assist people whose data is being processed if they want to file a complaint or claim. To contact the Data Protection Officer, a letter can be addressed to Universitat de Vic – Universitat Central de Catalunya, c/ Doctor Junyent, 1, 08500, Vic or directly an email to the address 

For what purpose we process the data and to whom we communicate it?
We process the data to develop the Co-Care project.

Services. We process data from users of the services offered by the Co-Care project:

  • Data on users of online training resources: students in health studies, ICT and social studies.
  • The data of the people who are part of the community of people interested in the project.

Activities. In the organization of activities, we obtain data from the people who register, in order to organize the activity. The data is not communicated to other people.

Contact. We attend to inquiries from people who use the contact forms on our website. The data is used for this purpose only and is not shared with others.

Sending information. With prior authorization we use contact details to inform of the services or initiatives of the Co-Care project, through the channels authorized by each person.

What is the legal legitimacy for the processing of data?
The data processing we carry out has different legal bases, depending on the nature of each processing. Most treatments correspond to the fulfilment of a mission in the public interest, as is scientific research. When we send information about our activities or services, we process contact details with the prior authorization of the recipient.

How long we keep the data?
The retention time of the data is mainly determined by the fact that they are necessary to meet the purposes for which they were collected in each case. Second, they are retained to deal with possible responsibilities for the processing of data and to meet the requirements of public administrations or judicial bodies.
Consequently, the data must be kept for the necessary time, but not for a longer period. In certain cases, the tax regulations oblige them to be retained until they prescribe the responsibilities in this matter. In the case of data that is processed exclusively on the basis of the consent of the person concerned, they are kept until the consent is revoked.

What rights do people have in relation to the data we process?
The people whose data we process have the following rights:

  • Right to know if they are being treated: Everyone has, in the first place, the right to know whether we process their data, regardless of whether there has been a previous relationship.
  • Right to be informed in the collection: When the data is obtained from the data subject, he must have clear information about the purposes for which they will be used, who will be responsible for the processing and the main aspects arising from this processing.
  • Right of access: Right to know which personal data are being processed, what is the purpose for which they are processed, communications to other people that will be made (if any) or the right to obtain a copy or to know the term planned conservation.
  • Right to correction: It is the right to rectify inaccurate data that is processed by us.
  • Right to erasure: The right to request the deletion of the data is recognized when, among other reasons, they are not necessary for the purposes for which they were collected.
  • Right to restrict processing: Also, in certain circumstances the right to request the limitation of data processing is recognized. In this case they will cease to be treated and will only be kept for the exercise or defence of claims.
  • Right to portability: It is the right of the data subject to request the Data Controller to process personal data by automated means, to deliver the data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable and interoperable format, or to transfer them from this way to another Data Controller. This right is recognized when the data subject has provided the personal data by giving consent or when the processing is necessary to execute a contract.
  • Right to object: A person may adduce particular reasons which will lead to the cessation of the processing of his data to the extent that they harm him.

How rights can be exercised or defended?
The rights we have just listed can be exercised by sending a request to the project coordinators, to the postal address or to the other contact details indicated in contact details.
It is also possible to lodge a complaint with the data protection supervisory authorities, using the forms or other channels accessible from the respective websites.
In any case, to submit complaints, request clarifications or send suggestions, it is possible to contact the Data Protection Officer by e-mail at
