A new European Law called the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) gives individuals in Europe greater control over their data covered by the GDPR and imposes additional obligations on organizations that collect this data.

Legal Basis of Processing

Memoria College collects and processes your personal data as set out in our Privacy Policy, which also describes the purposes of processing and our legitimate interests. Our legal basis for processing your personal data when subject to the GDPR is our legitimate interests (for example providing educational offerings and providing information about these offerings); to process transactions requested by you and meet our contractual obligations (for example, processing your payments, delivering our programs and evaluating your performance); as necessary to comply with a legal obligation (for example, responding to a subpoena); as necessary for the performance of tasks we carry out in the public interest (for example, furthering research and understanding in fields of academic study); or on the basis of your consent, where applicable.

Certain Rights

Under GDPR individuals have the right in certain cases, with respect to personal data subject to GDPR, to:

  • Obtain details of how their personal data is collected and used. Memoria College does this in our Privacy Policy

Retention of Information

Memoria College will retain your Personal Data for as long as is necessary for the purposes set out in our Privacy Policy unless a longer period is required under applicable law or is needed to resolve disputes or protect our legal rights or otherwise to comply with legal obligations.

Where we are processing Personal Data based on our legitimate interests, we generally will retain the data for a reasonable period of time based on the particular interest, taking into account the fundamental interests and the rights and freedoms of the data subjects.

Where we are processing Personal Data based on your consent, we generally will retain the information for the period of time necessary to carry out the processing activities to which you consented, subject to your right, under certain circumstances, to have certain of your personal data erased (see “Certain Rights” above).

Where we are processing Personal Data based on the public interest, we generally retain the information for the period of time that continues to serve that underlying interest.

International Data Transfers

In the event we collect any of your personal data in the European Economic Area (EEA), we may transfer the data outside the European Economic Area relying on appropriate or suitable safeguards or specific derogations recognized under data protection laws, including the GDPR.

If you have any questions, comments or complaints regarding the handling of your personal data please reach out to blowe@memoriacollege.org. You also have the right to complain to a data protection authority in Europe.
