This Personal Data Policies section governs and informs about the manner in which USI collects, uses, maintains and discloses personal data and information, in digital form, received by the web platform (hence, the Platform) visitors (hence, a "Visitor").

At the end of the section, we will ask for the explicit consensus of each Visitor.

Personal identification information

USI may collect personal identification information from Visitors in a variety of ways connected to the Prospect Platform, including, but not limited to, when Visitors visit our Platform, register on the Platform, fill out a form, send an email, and in connection with other activities, services, features or resources we make available.

USI does not store financial, health, government, or other kinds of more sensitive Visitors information.

USI will collect and treat personal identification information, notably first name, last name, e-mail, and nationality, communicated by Visitors only if they voluntarily submit such information to us and explicitly agree about our Personal Data Policies.

Non-personal identification information

USI may collect non-personal identification information about Visitors whenever they interact with this Platform. Non-personal identification information may include the browser name, the type of computer and technical information about Visitors means of connection to our Platform, such as the operating system and the Internet service provider’s utilized and other similar information.

The Platform may use "cookies" to enhance Visitors’ experience. Visitors’ web browser places cookies on their hard drive for record-keeping purposes and sometimes to track information about them. Visitors may choose to set their web browser to refuse cookies, or to alert you when cookies are being sent. If they do so, note that some parts of the Platform may not function properly.

Sharing your personal information: third parties policies

We do not sell, trade, or rent Visitors’ personal data to others.

Third parties such as, but not limited to, Google Analytics or Matomo, could collect and use information anonymously to understand how visitors interact with the Platform. Access statistics are anonymized. It is not possible to trace the results of this analysis back to a specific IP address.

How we protect and conserve your information

We adopt appropriate data collection, storage and processing practices and security measures to protect against unauthorized access, alteration, disclosure or destruction of your personal information stored on our databases.

Sensitive and private data exchange between the Platform and its users happens over a SSL secured communication channel and is encrypted and protected with digital signatures.

Personal Data could be kept by USI for two years in order to keep informed Visitors about events and news related to USI Master’s Programmes.

At any time, Visitors can ask to USI the list of their data by email to:
