Universia Code of Ethics
UNIVERSIA believes that the confidentiality and personal and family privacy of Universia Portals Users are rights that must be strictly and responsibly upheld. Therefore, taking into account the media through which we provide our services (the Internet) and the level of security required in this regard, Universia has drawn up a policy and designed the necessary means and procedures in order to implement that policy with the utmost effectiveness and precision.
UNIVERSIA guarantees the confidentiality of the personal data provided by the users and their processing pursuant to the legislation in force.
UNIVERSIA reserves the right to amend this notice in order to adapt to changes in legislation, amendments or industry practices. In such cases, reasonable notice shall be provided of the changes to be introduced to the data protection policy and the date from which said changes will take full legal effect.
It is also important to note that some of the Universia Portals services may include special provisions in their terms and conditions in this regard. For the general and specific terms and conditions of the services and contents of UNIVERSIA, please read our LEGAL NOTICE carefully.
The only personal data to which UNIVERSIA will have access are those that the USER provides. In this regard, the USER should be aware that for activation and registration on any UNIVERSIA portal, certain personal data will be required, which are necessary to access the portals and enjoy certain contents and services.
UNIVERSIA has adopted the necessary measures and techniques in order to maintain the level of security required in accordance with the personal data processed. Furthermore, UNIVERSIA is equipped with the appropriate available means in order to avoid, as far as possible, unauthorised access, theft, illegal amendments to and loss of data. However, the USER is hereby informed and warned that such means are neither infallible nor impregnable and UNIVERSIA cannot therefore accept liability for any such practices.
In addition, the USER must be aware that by definition, the Internet is an open and global network and that, every time personal information is voluntarily revealed on line - in notice board messages, by e-mail or on chat lines for example -, said information may be collected and used by others. In short, if you publish personal information online that is accessible to the public, you may receive unsolicited messages from others and therefore your data may be accessible. Owing to the above points, we recommend the maximum care in this regard and use of all the security mechanisms available.
