The User is hereby informed about the conditions for the collection and processing of his/her personal data by the Eugenides Foundation (EF), which is the beneficiary of all rights relating to the Website and is the entity responsible for processing such personal data.

The EF, acting as the Data Controller in accordance to General Regulation 2016/679 OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL of 27 April 2016 for the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free circulation of such data and the repealing of Directive 95/46/EC (General Data Protection Regulation, hereafter also referred to as ‘GDPR’ or ‘Regulation’) with effect from 25 May 2018, maintains a personal details database in full compliance with applicable law.

Protecting your privacy and personal data is a priority for the EF. The Foundation is in this sense committed that, when it retains your personal details, these will be safeguarded by taking all the appropriate organizational and technical measures so that it fully complies with GDPR requirements.

The EF respects privacy and confidentiality and is committed to taking all reasonable steps to ensure that your personal data is protected and at the same time informing you of their use.

The Privacy Policy describes the categories of personal data the EF collects, the principles underlying data processing, the methods by which data is processed and any transfers that may be made.

In addition, the Privacy Policy describes your rights extensively, as well as the way in which these rights may be exercised.

We hope that the Privacy Policy will provide a comprehensive understanding of personal data processing. If, however, you have any queries regarding your personal data, our contact details are at your disposal for you to communicate with us. The EF will make every effort to respond promptly to your enquiries.

At the EF, any processing of personal data is performed in accordance with the basic principles established by the Regulation:

– Legality, Integrity and Transparency: Personal data is treated lawfully and fairly and are processed in a transparent manner.

Personal Data

Your personal data collected and processed by the EF is confined to data deemed absolutely necessary for effectively carrying out its public service purpose.

More specifically, the kind of personal data that we may ask of you depends on the nature of the processing each time. The Eugenides Foundation, in fulfilling its public purpose and performing its activities, may request the following:

* Contact details (full name, telephone number, email address, etc.).

* Unique identity elements (e.g. ID/passport number).

* Information about your visit to the Foundation’s premises or to our Website (IP address, browser type, etc.).

* For emails sent: The data that the User usually completes when sending an email (indicatively, email address and his/her full name).

* Regarding the data provided when subscribing to our newsletter: the personal data entered at the specific point of our Website (email address).

Processing Purposes:

  1. a) Facilitating the User in his/her navigation on our Website; b) Informing the User about news, programmes, events and in general the various EF activities; c) Presentations and reviews of the EF’s charitable work in the context of its public benefaction purpose; d) Safeguarding the interests of the EF and fulfilling its obligations under the law; and e) fulfilling its public benefaction purpose and performing its activities.

Each data subject, after being informed of the purpose of collection and processing and the way in which data is protected, provides a statement giving his/her consent to the Eugenides Foundation for the collection, maintenance and general processing of his/her personal data.

Consent may be withdrawn at any time through a relevant statement from the data subject without prior notification to the Eugenides Foundation.

Maintenance and Destruction of Data

The Eugenides Foundation will retain your personal data only for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purposes of processing, the fulfilment of its public service purpose and as proof of fulfilment of its purpose towards State or other competent Authorities. However, there may be times when, due to legal requirements that need to be complied with, the EF will have to store your personal data for longer periods.

Keeping your personal data for longer than is really necessary is contrary to the principles of minimization and necessity. Therefore, your personal data will be deleted as soon as processing is completed or the statutory retention period has expired.

Please bear in mind that when personal data or confidential documents are deleted a document shredder (a device that turns paper into small, unreadable tracks) is used so as to preserve confidentiality even at the data destruction stage.


Personal data collected and processed by the Eugenides Foundation is not revealed or in any way disclosed to third parties unless such disclosure is expressly required by law.

In the context of the EF’s compliance with the principle of transparency and in order for the Foundation to fulfil its public service purpose effectively, it may be necessary to transfer your personal data to third-party partners. Such transmission will only take place after you have been informed of it and after giving your consent.
