Specific legal notes concerning personal data relating to the technical secretariat of the European Union Strategy for the Alpine Region (EUSALP)

Responsibility for processing

The policy for the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by the Community institutions and bodies is thus based on EU Regulation No. 679/2016 (General Data Protection Regulation – GDPR).

Personal data (DCP) means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; An identifiable person is a person who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identification number or to one or more specific elements specific to his identity.

In principle, access to the information available on or through the SUERA website does not require the provision of personal data by the user. However, to use certain online services, you may be asked to provide certain information about yourself.

The Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur Region (SUD Region), as a legal person, processes personal data as part of its action as Technical Secretariat of the European Union Strategy for the Alpine Region (SUERA).

Purposes of processing

The main purpose of the processing is the animation of the community of actors of the Technical Secretariat of EUSALP. The European Union Strategy for the Alpine Region is one of the four macro-regional strategies of the European Union.

The Alpine Macroregional Strategy concerns five EU Member States and two third countries:

  • France
  • Germany
  • Austria
  • Italy
  • Slovenia
  • Swiss
  • Liechtenstein

It thus covers 48 regions (including Auvergne – Rhône-Alpes, Burgundy – Franche-Comté and Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur for France) and 80 million people. It can rely on existing cooperation organizations: the Alpine Convention and the Alpine Space Programme, and for France, the Comité du Massif des Alpes, the Comité de Massif Jura and the Conseil National de la Montagne.

EUSALP is co-managed by the State and the regions, in close association with institutional, public and private actors. The governance bodies were set up in 2016: general assembly, executive council and action groups.

The SUERA Technical Secretariat undertakes to collect only the personal data strictly necessary for the purposes of the processing.

Legal basis of processing

The legal basis of the processing is based on the performance of a mission of public interest or falling within the exercise of the public authority vested in the Region, as data controller, and within the framework of the resolution of the European Parliament of 23 May 2013 concerning the Alpine Macroregional Strategy

Data gathering

The persons concerned are the agents of the institutional and academic partners of EUSALP, non-governmental organizations, public and private actors.

Recipients of personal data

EUSALP partners may be recipients of data collected by the Region within the framework of the EUSALP.

The data processors of the Région SUD, AUGURE and EMAGINEURS have access limited to the personal data strictly necessary for the performance of their services and have a contractual obligation to use them in accordance with the regulations in force in terms of personal data.

The Region undertakes not to transmit your personal data to any third party other than partners and subcontractors.

Personal data retention periods

The retention period of your personal data is strictly linked to the legal basis of the processing, the nature of the personal data concerned and the purpose of the processing.

Your data will thus be kept for a period of 3 years, in connection with the EUSALP Technical Secretariat contract hosted by the Provence Alpes-Côte d'Azur Region. The data will be updated regularly as the exchanges progress.

At the end of the retention period strictly necessary for the aforementioned purpose, the Region undertakes to destroy all your personal data within the limits and under the conditions provided for in compliance with its legal obligations.

Security of your data

As part of the implementation of its public policies, the SUD Region attaches the utmost importance to the security of your personal data.

In this sense, the Region implements technical and organizational security measures to guarantee the availability, integrity and confidentiality of personal data in order to prevent them from being distorted, damaged or that third parties unauthorized access. They provide a level of protection and security adapted to the risks associated with the processing and the nature of the data to be protected.

Personal data is stored on hosting servers located in the European Union or in third countries whose level of security in terms of personal data protection is in line with that offered in the European Union and the European Economic Area.

In accordance with the regulations in force, the Region keeps a register of personal data processing activities.
