Notice of Privacy Practises in accordance with Act of Parliament 15/1999, of 13 December, on Personal Data Protection.
No information deriving from web services is released or communicated. The personal information provided by users who provide or request material to be sent to them is used only in order to provide the service or to carry out the request.
DATA HANDLING SYSTEM
Personal information entering the system is handled by automated tools for the period of time strictly required to carry out the operations requested.
In any event TECNALIA is not responsible for the loss or disclosure of the transmitted information when caused by system failures.
TYPES OF DATA AND AIMS OF HANDLING
During normal operations, the computer systems and the software procedures used for the website acquire items of personal data from users who connect to the site; the flow of such data is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.
These items of information are not collected in order to identify the people involved, but by their very nature they might make it possible to identify such users, through processing and association with data held by third parties.
This category of data includes IP addresses or the dominion names of the computers used to access the website, the URI addresses (Uniform Resource Identifier) of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in reply, the numerical code showing the status of the reply given by the server (OK, error, etc) as well as other parameters relating to the operating system and the user’s computer.
These data are used only to obtain anonymous statistics on the use of the site, and to check that it is working properly. Such data might be used to investigate responsibility in cases of illegal computer operations which damage the site; except for this possibility, the current policy is not to retain web-contact data for more than six months.
Details provided voluntarily by users
Sending emails to the addresses shown on this website leads to the acquisition of the sender’s address, which is required for the reply, as well as any other items of personal information included in the message.
No personal information about users is deliberately acquired by the website.
Cookies are not used to transmit data of a personal type, nor are persistent cookies of any type used – in other words, systems for tracing users.
The use of what are known as session cookies (not memorised permanently on the user’s computer since they vanish when the browser is closed) is strictly limited to transmitting session identifiers (made up of random numbers generated by the server) required to make site navigation secure and efficient.
The session cookies used on the website make it possible to avoid using other computer techniques (which might compromise the user’s privacy during website navigation) and do not allow acquisition of personal data identifying the user.
PROVIDING INFORMATION IS OPTIONAL
Except for navigation data, users are free to provide or not provide personal details in their contacts with Tecnalia in order to request material or other communications, or to make use of the services available on the site.
Users will be able to exercise your right to access, rectify, cancel and challenge through the e-mail address firstname.lastname@example.org. Any authorization you may have granted can be withdrawn at any time.
