PERSONAL DATA PROTECTION.


Loyola complies with the obligations established by Organic Law 15/1999, dated the 13th of December, on Personal Data Protection, along with its implementing Regulation as approved by the Royal Decree 1720/2007, dated the 21st of December, and remaining existing legislation which may be in force and applicable at any given time, ensuring the observance of all obligations and rights of relevant parties concerning the processing of personal data. Moreover, in compliance with the provisions of Law 34/2002, dated the 11th of July, on Information Society Services and Electronic Commerce, Loyola will request users' prior consent for sending commercial notifications, in the event that they occur, while adhering to all users' obligations and rights.

In light of the above, in order to use particular services users must provide LOYOLA with certain personal data. Therefore, in accordance with Law 15/1999 on Personal Data Protection, users consent to and authorize LOYOLA to process their personal data in this same setting, as well as collaborating entities, in order to develop all aspects related to admission and access to university studies, academic work (teaching research), employability, former students (Loyola-Alumni), where  the following is available on all data entry forms that exist on the Portal: information pertaining to the identification of the person/entity responsible for the file, the purposes for processing their personal data, as well as the possibility to exercise user rights, as will be outlined below; all of which is done by previously reading and accepting our personal data protection policy, becoming duly informed of the terms indicated herein.

Therefore, at any point in time users may exercise (free of charge) their access rights, -to solicit and obtain information about their personal data which has been subjected to processing, its source and communications made or to be made,- their rectification and cancellation rights, -to change or cancel personal data which have not been processed in compliance with the Law and specifically when it proves to be inaccurate or incomplete,- and their opposition rights –to remove themselves from the list of personal data processing, which would mean the termination of those relations between LOYOLA and the users, who provided said data by sending it to the following addresses:  C/ Escritor Castilla Aguayo, 4, 14004 CORDOBA; C/ Energía Solar, 1,  41014 – SEVILLA or to the following e-mail address:

Furthermore, with regard to the images that Loyola can publish on the Portal, Loyola declares that it has received the consent of those persons who appear in them, having been previously informed of the use of these images in the established legal terms, and being adequate, relevant and not excessive in relation to their purpose.

Alternatively, it should be taken into account that an individual's image rights do not prevent the propagation of graphical information regarding public events or occurrences when the image of a particular person appears in a purely incidental manner, such as when referring to figures who hold public office or occupations of notoriety or public visibility and the image is captured during a public event or in spaces open to the public, unless it concerns authorities or persons who perform functions which, due to their nature, require their anonymity.

All personal information obtained through users' previous registration on the web page in order to access those services made available to them is met with the strictest standards of privacy in compliance with current legislation on this issue.
