Data Protection Policy

Data protection is of high interest for the University of West Bohemia (UWB). This data protection policy is compliant with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) of the European Union including the used terminology.

By means of this data protection policy, the UWB would like to inform the general public of the personal data we collect, use and process.

As the controller, the UWB has implemented numerous technical and organisational measures to ensure the most complete protection of personal data processed through this website. However, Internet-based data transmissions may in principle have security gaps, so absolute protection may not be guaranteed. For this reason, every data subject is free to transfer personal data to us via alternative means, e.g. by telephone.


The applicant or his/her legal representative, in case the participant is under the age of 18, freely gives a consent to process applicant’s personal data provided through the application form (e.g. name, surname, date of birth, phone number, email address) by the UWB, as the controller of such personal data.

Photos, audio and video

The participant of an event organised by the UWB freely gives a consent to use photographs, audio and video recordings of him/her taken during the event. Such photos and audio and video recordings can be used by the UWB for a record of the event, publicity material for further activities or events on leaflets/websites/magazines, illustrations of the activities or events in published articles and future grant applications.

Personal data protection

The personal data, collected in an encrypted way through the information system of the UWB or via a third party data processors (see below), will be processed solely for the purposes they were provided for. The access to the personal data will be limited to a restricted group of  UWB employees. The personal data can be used for legitimate needs of national inspection authorities and crime authorities and for auditing and reporting purposes of funding bodies of the UWB.

The personal data will be kept for no longer than is necessary.
