EESI-Digi is a product of Erasmus EESI-Digi project, as developed by University of Patras. EESI-DIGI  has one aim – to train Students with Disabilities and academic trainers to obtain skills on assistive technologies and digital tools that may assist their training process.

In this Privacy Policy, we explain what personal data we collect from EESI-DIGI  visitors and how we use such personal data.

It is important to note that this Privacy Policy does not apply to any other data, such as any personal data that may be included in the files, documents, recordings, chat logs, transcripts, and similar data that we maintain on our customers’ behalf, as well as any other information our customers may upload to their EESI-DIGI  account(s) in connection with their use of our Services or information gathered from other channels, such as publicly available sources. For the avoidance of doubt, we process customer Content, including any personal data which may be included therein, solely for the purpose of providing and operating our Services to our customers and only in accordance with their written instructions, which typically take the form of our Terms of Service and/or any similar written agreement between EESI-DIGI  and our customer.


The following categories of personal data are provided to EESI-DIGI , when a user navigates in the website / system:

User Account and Registration Data is data you provide when you create your account with us, request support or technical assistance, or register training material, which typically includes first and last name, and a valid email address. We need this data to provide the Services to you, to maintain and support your account. Legal basis for the processing of this data is our legitimate interest to provide training within the context of Erasmus+objectives and outputs and perform our contractual obligations under the applicable Services agreement.

Service Data (including Session and Usage data): When you visit our websites and use our Services, we receive data that you or others voluntarily enter, including on schedules and attendee lists, as well as data automatically logged by the website or Service, for example, duration of session, connections made, hardware, equipment and devices used, IP addresses, location, language settings, operating system used, unique device identifiers and other diagnostic data. We need this information to provide, operate, and improve our Services. We collect location-based data for the purpose of providing, operating, and supporting the service and for fraud prevention and security monitoring; you can disable location data transmission on mobile devices at any time by disabling location services from the settings menu on your device.

We strive to limit the types and categories of personal data that is collected from, and processed on behalf of, our users to include only information which is necessary to achieve the purpose(s) for which it was collected and we do not use personal data for additional purpose(s) which are incompatible with their initial collection. In other words, we have measures and policies in place designed to ensure that we only collect and process information from our users that we believe is necessary to operate and provide them with a world-class Service.

We also process your personal data to comply with applicable laws, including those of the European Union (“EU”) and/or individual European Economic Area (“EEA”) Member States and such compliance obligations are the legal basis for such processing.

If you grant consent to our placement of cookies or for us to contact you for marketing purposes, we may also use your personal data for marketing purposes and the legal basis for such processing is your consent.

We continuously improve our websites and Services through the use of first- and third-party cookies and other web analytics tools, which help us understand how our visitors use our websites, desktop tools, and mobile applications, what webpages, features and functions they like and dislike, and where they may have run into problems which need to be addressed.

Social Media: Many of our websites include social media features, such as Facebook, Google, and Twitter “share” buttons. If you use these features they may collect your IP address, which page you are visiting on our site, and may set a cookie to enable the feature to function properly – you can customise your rights with respect to the use of this data as specified in the “Exercising Choice” section below. These services will also authenticate your identity and provide you the option to share certain personal data with us such as your name and email address to pre-populate our sign-up form or provide feedback. Your interactions with these features are governed by the Privacy Policy of the third-party company providing them.
