Processing of personal data

The protection of your personal data (any information about you that you provide us when using the site, for example when you create a user account, such as your name, your contact information, ...) is a priority of the Innovation for Policy Foundation. We therefore take every precaution to ensure that no unauthorized third party has access.

In short:

We only use your data to operate the platform and have no strategy to reuse or sell your data: thus, we do not sell the data of our learners, and do not give any access to third parties other than our service providers (except to the authorities or institutions producing the toolkit -which themselves do not have the right to reuse them without your agreement for other purposes-). Without activity on your part, we will delete your identifying data after 5 years.

Within the framework of our missions, among which the co-creation of public policy and the transformation of the entrepreneurial ecosystem, we can also give access to researchers to certain data of use of the platform: in this case, these are entirely pseudonymised.
