The data collected and saved in regard to visitors when they visit our website are restricted to the following: the Internet address (IP address) of the computer or computer network being used; the page(s) visited; the computer’s Internet browser and operating system; the time of the visit; the user’s device (generalised); the size and language selection of the page browser; and the service provider, domain name and region. More detailed information can be found in our cookie policy below.

IP addresses are not linked to any information identifying the user. We collect data regarding the part(s) of the website visited and how long the user spends on them. We use the data we collect to produce site visit statistics for use in developing the website and making it easier for users to use.

Collection of other personal data

We also collect your personal data if you provide them to us yourself (for example, when contacting us over the phone, by e-mail, via the website, at our office or at public events we organise). Personal data provided to us are processed by the Information System Authority as part of the EU CyberNet project (i.e. the EU Cyber Capacity Building Network (IFS/2019/405-538) project) in order to establish and manage a network of experts.

The personal data we process are your:

  • Name
  • Contact details (telephone number and e-mail address)
  • Agency/company/institution
  • Citizenship
  • Date of birth, educational background, professional skills, employment history, etc. (as part of your CV)

In providing us with your e-mail address, you consent to us sending you our newsletter.
Various institutions of the European Commission and other European Commission projects may also be granted access to the EU CyberNet project’s network of experts if this is deemed necessary due to the objectives of the EU CyberNet project, except in cases where this is outweighed by your interests or constitutional rights or freedoms, in whose name personal data must be protected, and also in cases where this is necessary in order to protect your vital interests or those of another physical person. The personal data of a visitor who provides such data (hereafter referred to as a Member) shall be stored indefinitely during the running of the project. Should a Member wish to terminate their involvement in the project, they have the right to submit an application to the Information System Authority for the deletion of their personal data, upon receipt of which all personal data related to the Member shall be deleted from the project database.

Right to review personal data and right to demand the correction of inaccurate data

Everyone has the right to review the personal data collected about them. If the data have not been made public on the website, an application can be submitted in order to obtain the data. We will then issue you with the data at the earliest opportunity, but no later than within a month of your application being registered. The data pertaining to you will be issued electronically. If the personal data are subject to access restrictions, we will need to verify your identity. We may restrict your right to obtain information and your personal data if this has the potential to:

  • infringe the rights and freedoms of another individual;
  • hinder the obstruction of a crime or the apprehension of a criminal or complicate the determination of the truth in criminal proceedings;
  • threaten national security

Everyone has the right to demand the correction of inaccurate personal data. In matters related to the processing of personal data by the Information System Authority as part of the EU CyberNet project, please contact us by e-mailing eucybernet@ria.ee.

Anyone whose rights are breached in the processing of personal data has the right to file a claim with the Data Protection Inspectorate or an administrative court.
