Data Protection & Legal Notice

The Clean Sky 2 JU is committed to user privacy. It only processes your personal data for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes clearly described in each specific privacy statement, and does not further process any personal data in a manner incompatible with those purposes.

All personal information is processed in line with Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data by the Union institutions, bodies, offices and agencies and on the free movement of such data EU data (the “Regulation”).

What is personal data and processing?

Personal data is any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (Article 3(1) of the Regulation). The data subject is the person whose personal data are processed. Processing of personal data means any operation or set of operations that is performed upon personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, deletion or destruction.

Below, you can find examples of cases in which the Clean Sky 2 JU processes personal data and the related privacy statements:

A system of records of the processing operations is maintained by the Clean Sky 2 JU.

Who is responsible for the processing?

The CLEAN SKY 2 JU is the data controller. The data controller is responsible for ensuring that technical and organisational measures are undertaken so as to protect the personal data with an appropriate level of security. Only dedicated CLEAN SKY 2 JU staff will have access to your personal data. The data controller remains legally responsible if someone who works for him or her breaches the data protection rules. 

Your rights as data subject

Everyone has the right of information (Articles 15 and 16 of the Regulation) - to know that their personal data are being processed and for which specific and limited purpose. In the context of the CLEAN SKY 2 JU’s processing operations, this right is often fulfilled by the provision of a specific privacy statement (notice) to the data subject. The right of information is subject to certain exceptions, such as in cases where the data subject has already the above-mentioned information, where the provision of the information would involve a disproportionate effort, or where it is necessary to safeguard one of the legitimate interests mentioned in Article 25 of the Regulation.

The Regulation (Art 17-24) grants a range of specific data subject rights, which can be exercised under particular conditions. These rights consist of:

  • the right to access (Article 17 of the Regulation), 
  • the right of rectification (Article 18), 
  • the right to erasure or “right to be forgotten” (Article 19), 
  • the right of restriction of processing (Article 20),
  • the right to data portability (Article 22),
  • the right to object (Article 23), and
  • the right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing (Article 24).

In accordance with Article 25 of the Regulation, CLEAN SKY 2 JU may restrict certain data subject rights. For more information please see CLEAN SKY 2 JU internal rules concerning restrictions of certain rights of data subjects in relation to processing of personal data. These internal rules will be published in the Official Journal of the EU shortly.
