The MIICT Partner Consortium acknowledges the data protection principles and respects the rules laid down in the EU Data Protection legislation, and the General Data Protection Regulation in particular. For us, the proper processing of your personal data is of utmost importance and we strive to meet all applicable EU data protection requirements and ensure a high level of personal data protection.
The Data Controller
Although the MIICT Partners are acting as joint controllers and are held responsible for ensuring the compliance with all applicable data protection rules, both at EU and national level, within the MIICT Website, personal data is being processed only by:
T: +44 (0)114 225 5555
T: +43 1 9962011
Categories of personal data
The MIICT data controllers collect, process and use personal information concerning only visitors of the MIICT Website. While visiting the MIICT Website certain data is gathered and stored on the servers of WordPress.com such as: IP address, the date, time and length of your visit, from which server and which website you accessed the site, the actions carried out on the Website, the browser-type and the language settings.
In case you contact us via the contact form on the MIICT Website, the project coordinator is collecting and processing the following information: identification data such as name, e-mail address, as well as the content of the message you sent to us.
Purposes of data processing
The above-mentioned categories of personal data are processed for the following purposes:
The MIICT Consortium undertakes the due care and bears responsibility for protection of your information, except in the event of force majeure events or Malicious Actions of third parties.
Legal basis for processing
Recipients or categories of recipients of the personal data
Your personal data will be only disclosed to third parties in certain sporadic cases where the data controllers shall comply with a legal obligation or need to protect their rights and legitimate interests.
The personal data collected via the MIICT Website may be also shared with IT services providers and/or web hosting providers. The information accessed by these service providers is necessary for them to perform their services and may not be used for any other purposes.
As the Website is developed under a project funded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 Programme, only anonymised and aggregated data (statistics) will be provided to the European Commission.
Transfers of personal data to third countries or international organisations
The data controller does not intend to transfer your personal data to data controllers or processors established in third countries or international organisations. Should the cases of data transfer to data controllers or processors in third parties or international organisations arise, the data controller shall keep you informed. In any event, the transfer will be carried out in full compliance with the applicable data protection laws.
The United Kingdom is currently a full member of the EU. However, as the MIICT Coordinator is based in the UK, data transfers to third countries shall occur in case UK leaves the European Union. All data transfers between EEA and the UK will be executed in compliance with the applicable data protection laws.
Period for personal data storage
The Partner Consortium strives to meet all data protection requirements and to respect all the principles laid down in the General Data Protection Regulation. In this context, following the principle of data minimisation, the Partner Consortium shall process your data as long as it is necessary for the purpose for which the data is collected and to the extent permitted by the applicable laws. Once the purpose for data processing is reached out, we will remove the data and/ or anonymise it so that you are no longer identifiable.
For reporting purposes statistical data is kept for 5 years after the project end. The statistical data will not render any of the MIICT Website users identifiable.

MIICT (ICT Enabled Services for Migration) was conceived with the goal of designing, developing and deploying tools that address the challenge of migrant integration. In service of this goal, the project undertakes to co-create improved ICT-enabled services with migrants, refugees, public sector services, NGOs (Non-Governmental-Organisations) and other interest groups. By involving research-users at the centre of our approach we address the need to improve and customise the interfaces used to access key public services so that they better address the requirements of migrants and refugees.
