Privacy Policy

The IEMed is the organisation responsible for the data files generated from personal data provided by the users of the website

The users authorise the IEMed to use their personal, postal and electronic data with the objective of disseminating relevant information or considered of interest.

The IEMed commits to fulfil its obligation of secrecy concerning the personal data and right to confidentiality. To this end, the IEMed will adopt the measures necessary to avoid its alteration, loss and unauthorised processing or access. The IEMed maintains personal data protection levels and has established all the technical means within its field to avoid the misuse or theft of data provided by the users.

Moreover, the IEMed also informs you that it has an automated database with personal data (telephone numbers, addresses and e-mails) as well as a documentation archive. The objective of its creation, existence and maintenance is the processing of personal data to achieve the IEMed’s statutory objectives.

By clicking the box of acceptance of the privacy policies, concerning both the IEMed’s website content as well as by expressly validating the sending of the forms located on this website and other platforms, users and subscribers give their legitimate consent so that their surrendered personal data is treated in accordance with the aims described in the privacy policies and, in this respect, implies the express acceptance by the users and subscribers of the automated and documentation processing of the data included in the aforementioned database.

The purposes of the processing of the data requested are those strictly necessary for the correct identification of the sender and for the undertaking of the basic tasks of management, provision, enlargement and improvement of the services requested at each moment by users and subscribers.

Specifically, the surrender of personal data will have the following purposes:

Manage the register as a user on the CONNEKT website and online platforms owned by the IEMed (;,,; and Euromed Survey of Experts and Actors). However, each user or subscriber will have to give his/her consent and previously validate his/her registration on each platform.

Manage the periodical sending of newsletters and news related to the CONNEKT project.

The categories of the data processed are the following:

Personal data: name, surname, postal address, electronic address, postal code, telephone, town, etc.

Data on personal characteristics (data of birth, gender, etc.)

Opinion data (preferences, cultural interests, opinion on Euro-Mediterranean policies, civil society, migrations, etc.)

Transit and localisation data.

Electronic communications metadata.

The data that appears on the forms of the website indicated with an asterisk (*) will be compulsory and must be completed in order to comply with the purposes of personal data registration. Thus, if the user decides not to provide it, it will be not possible to register him/her on the website and, consequently, it will not be possible to deal with his/her request.

The IEMed can contact their users and subscribers by several means: electronic mail, postal mail, SMS, automatic notifications and within the app, through the social networks and by telephone, but only with his/her prior consent. We want to ensure that you agree to receive communications from us.

The processing of the data of users and subscribers of the IEMed is legitimised by the consent of the person interested, requested in each case.

The processing of the data to send electronic newsletters with news related to the CONNEKT project, the production of anonymous statistical reports on the habits of access and the activity of the users on the website are based on the legitimate interest of the Institute in undertaking this processing in keeping with prevailing regulation.

The authorisations obtained with the aforementioned purposes are separate and, therefore, the user can revoke one or more of them and this specific revocation does not affect the others.

The personal data can be communicated from the countries located outside the European area, including countries that do not have a data protection level comparable to that of the European Union. However, in these cases, the IEMed undertakes to process the data in strict compliance with European and Spanish legislation.

The IEMed will never sell your personal information to any person and will only share it, as described in the privacy policy, with the websites and online platforms in which the IEMed directly participates. This access to personal information is limited to the members of the IEMed staff that need it, and all staff understand how the personal information is protected and why we use it.

The IEMed will only share personal information with external providers of services when it is strictly necessary and they will only have access to the personal information necessary to provide the services contracted. In any case, they will be required to maintain the confidentiality of the personal information they access and cannot use it other than for the purpose stipulated and always in agreement with the current privacy policy.

The IEMed will store the data during the time necessary to undertake the purposes for which it was compiled, unless the user asks to be removed, expresses opposition or withdraws his/her consent.

The user is entitled to exercise the rights of access, rectification, cancellation, opposition, data limitation and right to data portability by writing to
