Your data will be accessible only to those departments within the COHE that need it to perform the above-mentioned purposes and legal obligations. Your data may also be provided to third-party processors and other service providers contracted for these purposes. These include companies providing IT, telecommunications and printing services.

The possible recipients of data in such cases include public authorities and institutions (e.g. government agencies, tax authorities) where a legal obligation to supply data exists. Other possible recipients include bodies for which you have given us your consent.

 Will your data be transferred to a third country or international organisation?

In cases where data is transferred to countries outside the European Economic Area (third countries), they will only be transferred to COHE cooperation partners.

If you believe that the processing of your personal data violates existing data protection regulations, you may lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority without prejudice to other legal remedies. In particular, you may lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority in the Member State in which you reside, at your place of work, or at the place where the alleged infringement occurred.
