Privacy Statement

The FIspace partners know how important personal privacy is to you. Because of our interest in protecting your privacy, we have adopted the following privacy principles:

Your Expectation of Privacy

We recognize that you expect privacy and security for your personal and company affairs. We understand the need to safeguard your sensitive information that you entrust to us. We maintain standards and procedures designed to prevent misuse of this information.

Collection, Retention, and Use of Information About You

We collect, retain, and use information about you only where we reasonably believe that it will help administer our project activities, communicate with you or provide technologies, services, and other information to you. We collect and retain information about you only for specific purposes of the FIspace project – and we will tell you why we are collecting and retaining it upon request. We use that information to protect and administer our records, to comply with certain laws and European regulations; to help us design or improve our technologies and services; so that the FIspace project may provide you with innovative technologies and services.

How We Use Cookies

A cookie is a small file which asks permission to be placed on your computer's hard drive. Once you agree, the file is added and the cookie helps analyse web traffic or lets us know when you visit a particular site. Cookies allow web applications to respond to you as an individual. The web application can tailor its operations to your needs, likes and dislikes by gathering and remembering information about your preferences.

We use traffic log cookies to identify which pages are being used. This helps us analyse data about web page traffic and improve our website in order to tailor it to those interested in the FIspace project. We only use this information for statistical analysis purposes and then the data is removed from the system. Overall, cookies help the FIspace project provide you with a better website, by enabling us to monitor which pages you find useful and which you do not. A cookie in no way gives us access to your computer or any information about you, other than the data you choose to share with us.

You can choose to accept or decline cookies. Most web browsers automatically accept cookies, but you can usually modify your browser setting to decline cookies if you prefer. This may prevent you from taking full advantage of the FIspace website.

Links to Other Websites

Our website may contain links to other websites of interest. However, once you have used these links to leave the FIspace project site, you should note that we do not have any control over the other website you visit. Therefore, we cannot be responsible for the protection and privacy of any information which you provide whilst visiting such sites and such sites are not governed by this privacy statement. You should exercise caution and look at the privacy statement applicable to the website in question.

Controlling Your Personal Information

You may choose to restrict the collection or use of your personal information in the following ways:

  • Whenever you are asked to fill in a form on the website, look for the box that you can click to indicate that you do not want the information to be used by anybody for direct dissemination or sharing of project information purposes;
  • If you have previously agreed to our using your personal information for direct dissemination or sharing of project information purposes, you may change your mind at any time by contacting us [1].
  • We may use personal information you provide to send you information about third parties and other related projects that collaborate with the FIspace project that we think you may find interesting, unless you tell us that you do not wish this to happen.

    Security Procedures to Protect Information

    We maintain security standards and procedures to prevent unauthorized access to personal information about you. We periodically update our technology to improve the protection of our information about you and to ensure the integrity of our information.

    Disclosing Information Outside the FIspace Consortium

    The FIspace project will not sell, distribute, lease nor reveal specific information about your company or personally identifiable data to parties outside our project partner organisations unless it is lawfully permitted or required or we have your permission to do so. We do not provide account or personal information outside of the FIspace project consortium for the purpose of independent telemarketing or direct mail marketing of any products or services.

    Maintaining Your Privacy

    Sometimes it is necessary to provide personally identifiable information about you to a party outside of the FIspace consortium, such as to a vendor or service company that we use to provide support or services for providing FIspace project information or support services. These vendors and service companies agree with us to safeguard our confidential information about you and your company and must abide by applicable laws.

    Our Privacy Commitment to You

    We want you to understand our commitment to personal privacy and our use of information. These materials will answer most of the important questions that you may have about how we gather, protect, and use information. If you still have questions please contact us [1]. We reserve the right to change this Privacy Statement at any time.
