In some cases, UEFISCDI automatically collects certain types of information when you visit the website or register / create accounts on our platforms or through the e-mails you send to our contact addresses. Automated technologies may include the use of web server-generated log files to collect IP addresses, cookies, and web beacons. The collection of this information will allow us to better understand and improve the performance, level of use and efficiency of the UEFISCDI website and platforms and to measure the efficiency of our dissemination activities.
An IP address is a number assigned to your computer whenever you access the Internet. It allows computers and servers to recognize and communicate with each other. The IP addresses from which visitors appear to come can be registered for IT security and system diagnostics. This information can also be used in a consolidated form to analyze the trend and performance of the website.
A web beacon is a small image file within a web page that can be used to collect certain information on your computer, such as your IP address, when the content was visited, the type of browser, and the existence of cookies previously installed by the same server. UEFISCDI uses web beacons exclusively in accordance with applicable laws. UEFISCDI or its service providers may use web beacons to track the effectiveness of third-party websites that provide us with recruitment or marketing services or to compile consolidated visitor statistics and manage cookies. You have the option to make some web beacons unusable by rejecting the associated cookies. The beacon web file may still record an anonymous visit from your IP address, but the information provided by the cookie will not be recorded. In some of our communications, we may confirm a recipient's email address through links embedded in messages. We collect this information to measure user interest and to facilitate future user information.
We do not disclose personal information to unaffiliated third parties, unless this is necessary for our legitimate institutional needs, to meet your requests and / or if required or permitted by law or professional standards.

You can also make a request to update or delete the information about you by contacting email@example.com, and we will make all reasonable and practical efforts to respond promptly to your request, as long as it complies with applicable laws and professional standards.
UEFISCDI has implemented and is implementing / updating reasonable security policies and procedures to protect personal information against loss, misuse, alteration or unauthorized destruction. To the greatest extent possible, access to your personal data is strictly limited to those people who need to know it. The persons who have access to these data maintain their confidentiality according to the UEFISCDI Code of Ethics. We will also keep the personal data only for as long as is necessary to comply with a person's request or until that person requests their removal, but taking into account the legal deadlines in force.

- the right to object, under which the user may object to the processing of personal data, including the creation of profiles, on grounds relating to his/her particular situation, in cases where the processing is necessary to perform a task in the public interest, when it takes place for the purpose of the legitimate interests pursued by us or by a third party. In such cases the processing will be done only if it is justified by legitimate and compelling reasons, which prevail over the interests, rights and freedoms of the user, or when the purpose of the processing is to establish, exercise or defend a right in court.
