Data Protection Policy

According with the new General Data Protection Regulation, (EU) 2016/679, of the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union of the 27th of April 2016, on the protection of individuals regarding the processing of personal data and the free movement of such data (GDPR), it is essential to obtain the explicit consent of all persons whose personal data are used by UPTEC.

UPTEC’s vision is to become a Science and Technology Park that contributes to the development of the new economic frame, which is more transparent, ethical and sustainable. For us, it is essential to be transparent about the personal data we want to collect, how we use it and with whom we share it.
