This Notice describes eu-LISA's policies and practices regarding its collection and use of your personal data, and sets forth your privacy rights. We recognise that information privacy is an ongoing responsibility, and we will update this Notice as we undertake new personal data practices or adopt new privacy policies.
You can browse the eu-LISA website without having to give any information about yourself. However, in some cases, personal information is required in order to provide the e-services you request.
Pages that require such information are setup according to the policy described in Regulation EC (No) 45/2001, and provide information about the use of your data in their specific privacy notices:
- Within eu-LISA the Data Protection Officer ensures that the provisions of the Regulation are applied and advises controllers on fulfilling their obligations (see Article 24 of the Regulation 45/2001);
- For all the European Institutions, the European Data Protection Supervisor (EDPS) will act as an independent supervisory authority (see Articles 41 to 45 of the Regulation);
