Legal notice


In compliance with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), your personal data will be processed, with your consent, for the purpose of sending you information on the courses, services and activities of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and to handle any request you may make to take part in the university's information and guidance activities.

Your data will be retained indefinitely and may be assigned to Fundació Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona or to centres affiliated or linked to the UAB for the same purposes in relation to these organisations.

The processing of your data will not lead to any automated decisions being made, nor to profiling for predictive purposes based on personal preferences, behaviours or attitudes.

In the activities taking place online, your first and last name or session identifier will be visible for the rest of participants to see for the duration of the session. In addition, your image and voice will also be accessible to other participants once you activate your device's camera and/or microphone.

You have the right to oppose to this as stated in Article 21 of the GDPR if, for reasons related to any particular situation, you do not want your identity to be known. In this case, you can disable the audio and video options on your device.

The online sessions may be recorded in audiovisual format, and the recording may be published on the institutional website of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona, as well as on the sites of the affiliated schools or centers linked to the UAB and on the profiles of the social networks of both.

The processing of your personal data on behalf of the UAB is legitimised by the need to do so for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest, as stated in Article 6.1.e of the GDPR, in accordance with the objectives and goals attributed to public universities and their governing bodies.

In accordance with current law on personal data protection, you have the right to exercise, at any time, your rights of access, rectification, erasure, objection,  limitation of processing and portability of the data by making a written application to the data controller (the head of the Promotion Unit of the Area of Communication and Promotion of the UAB: promocio@uab.cat) or to the Secretariat General of the UAB, campus universitari de Bellaterra, Edifici del Rectorat, Pl. Acadèmica S/N, 08193, Bellaterra (Cerdanyola del Vallès).

In addition, you may lodge a complaint before the Catalan Data Protection Authority (apdcat.gencat.cat/ca/inici/) and address queries to the UAB data protection officer (protecció.dades@uab.cat).
