Who is responsible for processing your data?

NIF R4800525J

How do we obtain your data?

The personal data we process at LABAYRU FUNDAZIOA comes directly from the interested party.

If you are already a client, you have provided it to us offline, when requesting our services, in order for us to be able to maintain a contractual relationship with you.

If you gave us your data via this website, we collect information, for example, when you access the webpage, when you fill out any form that requires personal data, when you load information or content, or when you communicate with us directly.

We can process and register that use, as well as related information, be it independently or with the help of third-party services, including via the use of cookies (If you wish, you can obtain more information about cookie configuration in different browsers by clicking here) and other tracking technologies.

When you voluntarily input your personal data, you guarantee that you are empowered to provide us with that information and that the information is true, accurate, and up-to-date, that it is not confidential, and that it does not violate any contractual restrictions or third-party rights.

You are responsible for keeping your information correct and up-to-date, absolving LABAYRU FUNDAZIOA of all liability should you fail to do so.

Third-party data

Regarding the data of other people, you must respect their privacy by paying special attention when publishing their personal data. We remind you that as a user, you may only consent to your personal data being processed, but not that of third parties, and that the communication of the data of third parties constitutes a cession of personal data.

Should you provide the personal information of third parties, it is your responsibility to have their prior express consent to use it and to communicate it, and you are responsible for telling them that their data has been included in our files.

The publication of third parties’ data without their consent may violate not only data protection legislation but also the right to honour, to privacy, and to one’s own image of those third parties, rights whose protection is governed by Organic Law 1/1982, of 5 May, regarding the civil protection of the right to honour, personal and family privacy, and one’s own image.

For what purposes do we process your data?

We may process your data for different purposes, for example:

  1. If you are a current or potential client, to handle your order and carry out requested services (teaching, translating, research activities on Basque language and culture and its dissemination, etc.).
  2. To maintain contact and communication with you, to handle the contractual and/or commercial relationship, including after-sales services and the guarantee, handling, and billing for requested products and/or services.
  3. If you are only a user of our website and are not yet a client, to handle the requests you make of us online.
  4. If you provide any curriculum information or send us your CV, to contact you and handle the selection process we carry out.
  5. To offer you products and services in accordance with your interests; to improve your user/client experience; to better develop, personalize, and improve our services, in accordance with the preferences, experiences, and difficulties, both common and personal, of the users/clients, which we use to draw up a commercial profile which is based on the information provided; but we will not make automated decisions based on said profile.
  6. In both cases, to maintain contact and communication with you, to carry out opinion and/or satisfaction surveys, and to send you information about our activities, products, and/or services (including advertising and/or commercial communications on the grounds of art. 21 of Law 34/2002 regarding services of the information society and electronic commerce).

How long do we keep your data?

The personal data provided will be preserved for a period of six years starting from the end of the contractual relationship, in the case of clients, and as long as you do not request they be deleted, should you be a mere website user. Ever after these periods, we may keep your data, limiting its processing only to comply with legal obligations and/or the exercising or defending against claims.

What is legitimization for the processing of your data?

The legal base that authorizes us to process your data is the contract (mercantile, administrative, labour, sales, service provision) that exists between the parties if you are a current or potential client or, for example, the request you made via our website, should you be a mere user of the same.

Additionally, we have a legitimate interest, derived from the pertinent and appropriate relationship that you have with us as a client or website user in processing your data, inside the maintenance and handling of the same, to:

  • Handle requests made through our website.
  • Be able to send you commercial information about our activities, products, and/or services (including advertising and/or commercial communication on the grounds of art. 21 of Law 34/2002 regarding services of the information society and electronic commerce) or those third-party entities with which any company has signed a collaboration agreement.
  • Communicate your data to other companies in the group in order to provide integral or specialized client service that requires the intervention of interdisciplinary teams and for internal administrative purposes.
  • Carry out opinion and/or satisfaction surveys.
  • Prevent fraud.

These purposes are compatible with the initial purpose for which we initially collect your data (handling contact and communication with you and maintaining the relationship that links us) but, in any case, providing your data for these purposes is always voluntary, and your interests, rights, and freedoms will always prevail over our legitimate interest, so if you request that we delete and stop processing your data for these purposes, we will do so, as we can keep them blocked in order to formulate, exercise, or defend claims.

If you have provided us with sensitive data that requires special protection, the authorization to process them is your express consent. You unequivocally give us that consent by providing us your data, as the act of providing it is a clear, affirmative act that demonstrates said consent.

To which recipients may your data be communicated?

The data will be communicated to other companies for internal administrative purposes, including processing clients’ personal data.

We inform you that the data you provide us with may be communicated to third parties to comply with the purposes directly related to legitimate functions of assignor and assignee, such as:

  1. Bodies of the Public Administration to which there is a legal obligation to carry out the communication of data (tax administration, social security administration, work inspectors, etc.), Notaries, Registries, Mutual Insurance Companies, Courts, Attorneys, Solicitors, Adjustors, etc.; said communication will be carried out always to comply with purposes directly related to the legitimate functions of assignor and assignee.
  2. To banking entities to handle charges and payments.
  3. We use American companies such as Microsoft, the supplier of Office and Windows. We have selected this company given that it subscribes to the Privacy Shield agreement, which means that it is obliged to comply with requirements that are equivalent to European rules about data protection so that the level of protection of your personal data is not diminished. The abovementioned Privacy Shield agreement is a legally binding and enforceable instrument between the EU and the US and is considered by the European Commission to provide appropriate guarantees of the personal data protection of interested parties. If you wish, you can access Microsoft’s privacy policy on their website.

In any case, by accepting this data protection policy, you are expressly and unequivocally authorizing the communication of your data to said company, knowing that that means that your data will travel internationally to a country that does not belong to the European Economic Area and giving your unequivocal consent to said transfer.

Your comments shared on our profiles on social media may be published on our website, as well as the photograph included in those comments.

If the user should provide the personal data of third parties so that they may benefit from our services, the user declares that he or she has the prior express consent of the same in order to communicate them to us and assumes responsibility for communicating to those third parties that their data has been included in our files.

The user promises to input accurate, current, and true data so that it does not mislead the recipients of the information, as well as to not impersonate other users by using their data to register different services and/or content on the website.

What are your rights when you provide us with your data?

  1. Right of access: You may ask us what personal data we are processing, including requesting a copy of the same.
  2. Right to rectify: You may request the correction of your inaccurate personal data, or ask that we complete incomplete data, including via an additional statement.
  3. Right to deletion (right to be forgotten): You may request that we delete your personal data when: they are not necessary for the purposes they were collected for, you withdraw your consent, there has been an illicit processing of your data, or in order to comply with a legal obligation.
  4. Right to limit processing: You may request we limit the processing of your data, in which case we will only preserve them to exercise or defend against claims.
  5. Right to data portability: You may request we return your personal data (to you or to a third party you specify) in a structure format that is in common use and can be machine read.
  6. Right to oppose: You may oppose the processing we do of your data if said processing is based on the legitimate interest of the person responsible for the file or if it is for advertising purposes.
