Version 1.1 – 3.1.2024

General Data Protection Policy 

For the privacy protection policy, DARIAH-GR/DYAS applies the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which provides a single legislative framework for the processing of personal data in the European Union member states and has been made mandatory on May 25, 2018. Personal data is any information that refers to the person of each individual, such as: their name and occupation, their marital status, their age, their place of residence, their ethnic origin, their political opinions, the religion they believe in, their philosophical views, their trade union activity, their health, their love life and any criminal prosecutions and convictions. Many of the above personal data are sensitive, i.e. they are of particular importance for the formation of the image of the individual’s personality.

DARIAH-GR/DYAS is governed by the following rules for the collection and processing of the personal data of the users of the infrastructure. We take every legal measure to ensure that personal information provided by users to the infrastructure is provided only with the express consent of the user, is kept secure and is considered confidential in accordance with applied laws and regulations.

DARIAH-GR/DYAS members are responsible for following the privacy protection policy for the data they collect.

The user’s registration in the services of the APOLLONIS websites in the Services Portal and in any of the following services of DARIAH-GR/DYAS implies their consent to the storage of their registration data for use by the specific service.

Mailing list and Newsletter

The user’s registration in the mailing list and in the DHt(rip) or other Newsletter implies that they agree to provide DARIAH-GR/ DYAS with the following personal information: Name, e-mail address and (optionally) the organization in which they are employed (e.g. University or Research Institute).

DARIAH-GR/DYAS uses this data to send messages related to the activities of the infrastructure and its members. The service used to send these messages is MailChimp. A copy of the database is stored in the ownCloud cloud service installed on an GRNET server.

Users can change or delete their personal information by contacting DARIAH-GR/ DYAS.


For the video recording and photography of events, as long as the video footage and photos are used for the promotion of the events in mass media/communication media (e.g. press releases, websites, social networks, etc.) for the purpose of informing the public and/or the scientific community, the express consent of the participants upon registration is required.

Reimbursements for visitor expenses

In special cases (e.g. for the compensation of invited speakers or instructors), DARIAH-GR/DYAS compensates third parties for travel and accommodation expenses. Personal information (identity or passport number, bank account details, etc.) is kept by the organisers only until the compensation is paid.

Google Drive

To improve performance and for communication between DARIAH-GR/DYAS members, and between Apollonis members, shared folders have been created on Google Drive: One for Apollonis in which all Apollonis members participate, and one for the DARIAH-GR/DYAS for the internal communication of DARIAH-GR/DYAS members.

Users’ personal data is stored in GDrive and is visible to the persons participating in the specific folder and its administrator. The data is kept for as long as the project lasts, unless the user stops participating.
