The present policy is intended to inform you about how Nyuko a.s.b.l. (hereafter « Nyuko ») collects and processes your personal data (hereafter « your Data ») in accordance with the rules set by the European Parliament and Council Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of April 27th, 2016 relating to the protection of natural persons and the processing of personal data (hereafter « GDPR »).
Nyuko, a Luxembourg non-profit association (association sans but lucratif) having its registered address at 14, rue Erasme, L-1468 Luxembourg, is responsible for the processing of Your Data.
Categories of personal data processed
Nyuko does not collect personal data other than those you voluntarily provided:
- on its website either when you applied for a support program or when you submitted an information request or when you signed up for the newsletter;
- on its website or on the site of an event management tool, such as Eventbrite, when you register for an occasional event organised by Nyuko.
In this context, Nyuko primarily processes identification and contact-related information (such as names, country of residence, e-mail, telephone number, year of birth, etc.). In addition to this data, Nyuko also collects the following information with respect to applications: name of the project and information about the team members. All the elements relating to the project requested and collected, without being personal data, are handled with all due confidentiality.
In all cases, Nyuko ensures that only appropriate and relevant data is collected, processed and stored as required for the purposes defined.
The personal data collected on Nyuko’s website and/or on the sites of event management tools will be processed by Nyuko for the following purposes:
- help and assist future entrepreneurs. The applicants that will integrate one of Nyuko’s programs will sign an agreement which will specify the new terms and conditions applicable in terms of privacy protection;
- promote Nyuko’s activities and news through the newsletter. If the subscribers wish to amend their preferences or simply unsubscribe, they can refer to the instructions featured at the end of each newsletter they receive;
- register people for events, organise these events and follow up on the events (satisfaction survey, sending the presentation materials, etc.)
- communicate with the website visitors and provide them with the information requested;
- process the access, rectification and opposition requests, and other rights with respect to personal data;
- manage claims and litigation;
- enhance the user experience on the website.
The processing of your Data is necessary for Nyuko to provide you with the services you requested, as well as to enable Nyuko to fulfil its public service missions. These purposes constitute the legal basis for the data processing carried out by Nyuko. Regarding the newsletter, the processing of the data is based on the consent provided by the subscribers.
Personal data recipients and transfers of personal data
Your Data is processed internally by duly authorised persons and in accordance with their respective responsibilities.
Your Data may also be communicated to Nyuko data processors (including IT service providers such as system administrators, cloud services providers, data hosts, e-mailing platforms, websites of event management platforms [some of which might be hosted outside the European Union and might consequently not fulfill all the norms of the Regulation (EU) 2016/679], etc.), to any external parties involved in the organisation of specific events and to institutional partners (primarily the Luxembourg Chamber of Commerce) with the sole goal of achieving the above mentioned processing purposes. When applicable, these transfers are handled to the strictest extent necessary and are subject to the existence of contractual guarantees to ensure the security and confidentiality of the data.
Data security and storage period
Personal data is processed by Nyuko as a data controller, in compliance with the applicable data protection legislation. Nyuko undertakes to implement all technical and organisational security measures to ensure the protection of your Data against the risks associated with the use of information systems. Nyuko follows generally accepted security standards to help protect your Data. However, no method of transmission over the Internet or of electronic storage is 100% secure. Therefore, Nyuko cannot guarantee the absolute security of your Data.
Nyuko stores your Data for as long as necessary to comply with its legal and regulatory requirements or to ensure the effective execution of the purposes for which they have been collected.
You have a right to access your Data, a right to rectify your Data in the event of any error and, subject to providing proof of legitimate and compelling grounds in accordance with GDPR, a right to restriction of processing and a right to object to the collection of your Data.
As of May 25th, 2018, you are also entitled to request the deletion of all or part of your Data or a restriction of the processing, object to the processing or make use of its right to data portability, within the limits provided by the applicable rules.
