PURPOSEHow we use the data

As part of its academic activities, JCI collects and processes the personal data of (1) people interested in its programmes; (2) students and (3) former students. JCI shall process this data, and the data that it processes for its administrative tasks, in a fair and lawful manner, always complying with the provisions of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council (“GDPR”).

The following Privacy Policy establishes the terms under which we process personal data in JCI; this includes any personal information collected through our website, and any other data that we process when performing our academic and business activities.

JCI collects the following personal data for the purposes specified below:

    1. General contact form and forms for courses and programmes: the personal data collected through this form will only be used to inform you about the services that you have requested from us. If you give us your explicit consent, the contact details may be used for marketing purposes, always to offer products and services from JCI.
    2. Students: the data of the students from our courses and programmes will only be processed within the context of the academic activities and to manage the relationship between the students and JCI. The students’ data will also be used to perform the administrative tasks that arise from the provision of the service. Furthermore, by virtue of the legitimate interest of JCI, the students’ data may be processed for marketing purposes, always to offer products and services from JCI. The student’s prior and explicit consent will be requested for any other use.
    3. Former students: in the case of JCI’s former students, your personal data will be used for the purpose of creating a community of former students (Alumni), always with your explicit consent. Furthermore, by virtue of the legitimate interest of JCI, the former students’ data may be processed for marketing purposes, always to offer products and services from JCI or to conduct internal studies or surveys for continuous improvement of our services. The former student’s prior and explicit consent will be requested for any other use.
    4. Social media: any information that is given to us or which may be shared on social networks where JCI has an active account will be processed in accordance with the Privacy Policies of each social media channel. We recommend that users of such social media regularly read and review these before interacting with JCI through these social media channels.
    5. Job applicants: if we hold job interviews in our offices, the applicants’ data will be used to fill any job vacancies in JCI. If they are hired by our company, the worker’s personal data will only be used to manage the employment relationship with JCI.
    6. Contact people from entities: we may also collect data from various contact people from companies, entities, public authorities and any other legal entity with which JCI establishes any kind of relationship for the provision of the services.
    7. Seminars and webinars: in the case of organization of face-to-face or online seminars, JCI will collect the necessary data for the control and management of the attendees and if they are paid events, for the billing of the service. If the face-to-face or online seminars require registration, JCI will use the e-mail address of the attendees in order to send the registered persons the file or link with the content of the seminars.
    8. Surveys: surveys may occasionally be sent to find out the professional profile of our students, in order to statically measure our student body.

How long do we retain the data?

In the case of the data that is processed as part of a contractual relationship between the data owner and JCI, the personal data will be processed for the duration of that contractual relationship and, once concluded, during the prescribed period for any legal actions that may arise in relation to compliance with or a breach of said contractual relationship. This would be the case for the data of students and workers.

In cases where the data is processed by virtue of the consent of the data owner (contact details used for marketing purposes) or by virtue of JCI’s legitimate interest, the data will be processed until that consent is withdrawn or until JCI ceases to have a legitimate interest in processing the data.

In the case of contacts who have not given us your consent to process your data for marketing purposes, your data will be automatically deleted from our systems 36 months after your request for information, provided that you have not shown any further interest in JCI’s products or services.

With regard to employment data, we will continue to process this for the duration of that relationship and, once it has concluded, for the necessary time to be held accountable for any breaches in this area. If an interview is held for any job vacancy, your personal data will be stored for a period of one year, after which, if you were not selected, it will be deleted from our systems.

The data that you may have included in your student profile in the framework of the job or internship program (such as your CV), will be automatically deleted when you finish your training period in JCI.

LEGITIMACYThe students’ and workers’ data is processed by JCI, for the performance of the contractual relationship. Any refusal to provide personal data in such cases may make it impossible for JCI to finalise the contract.

We will only process your data for marketing purposes if you have given us your specific consent to do so. You will always have the option to withdraw your consent for the processing of your data for such purposes.

With regard to the processing of the data of students and former students for marketing purposes, we will process your data on the basis of JCI’s legitimate interest.

The personal data of contact people from entities will be processed on the basis of JCI’s legitimate interest.

The additional information that you add to your profile, within the job exchange or professional internship program, will be used to comply with your request for vacancies.

RECIPIENTSData transfers to third parties

Notwithstanding the case described below, your personal data will not be transferred to third parties without your prior, explicit consent.

In the case of programs or courses that are taught jointly or in collaboration with third-party institutions, your personal data may be transferred and/or obtained to and/or from academic and university institutions (i.e. Hogescholen or ROC’s in the Netherlands). This transfer will have as its sole purpose the academic management.

If you request information about courses or programmes that are managed somewhere in the world where JCI is present, your personal data may be transferred to our international agents. These countries may include states that do not offer an adequate level of protection. In such cases, based on article 49 (1)(b) of the GDPR, this international data transfer is necessary “for the performance of a contract between the data subject and the controller or the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the data subject’s request“.

In the event that you accept a vacancy offer for a position or internship, your personal profile and data, as well as any other information that has been submitted, will be transferred to the company that published the offer, and this company could well be located anywhere in the world.
