Information is a key point to respect the fairness of the processing operation. Moreover, the right to be informed is a pre-requisite to all other data subjects' rights. In this context, the main quality of a good privacy statement is to provide essential easily readable information.

Privacy Statement      

Regulation 45/2001 (herein after "the Regulation") applies to the processing of personal data carried out in the use of the discuto.io platform.

Further to Article 11 and Article 12 of this Regulation, the BEREC Office provides the data subjects with the following information:

- data produced during ideation or document crowdsourcing projects by voting, commenting and uploading ideas, attachment, pictures and videos.

The username, picture and the contributions of a user (e.g. comments and uploaded ideas) are displayed on the platform - i.e. in the ideation and document crowdsourcing processes and the user page. The votes of a user on the platform are secret, i.e. other participants cannot see how a user voted.\

Their request will be treated as soon as possible and not later than 15 working days following the date of its recording.
