Information you will provide will be processed by University of Bologna, which will replace any identification data with a code. Please note that your data will be subject to anonymisation only after 3 years, since, over the period of time:
- you will be asked to answer a further questionnaire [or interview, or participate to a focus group] that will be compared and elaborated also in the light of the answers already provided;
- it is in the interest of the University to be able to contact you again in order to deepen some aspects of the research or ask for clarifications on the answers you provided to the online questionnaire;
- it is in the interest of the University to be able to contact you again if you have expressed the will to participate in the beta-testing program of the matchmaking system
Data without identification details may also be communicated to third parties for research purposes.

The data collected and stored for the realization of the study in question, will be kept for 10 years.
(B) Data storage for future research activities
Considering that new discoveries could indicate unprecedented research opportunities for researchers or allow further studies and research on particular data for the study in question, you may allow prolonged storage of your data in a non-anonymous form for a period of time up to 10 years from the conclusion of this study for possible future research activities and, if necessary, to contact you again to let you express, if it deems it, a new specific consent for a new research.
If, on the other hand, you refuse to consent to the processing described herein, your data will be deleted or made anonymous immediately upon expiry of the storage term indicated in point (A).
(C) Conservation for administrative purposes
Your data will also be processed for administrative accounting purposes and kept for the time strictly necessary for the pursuit of these purposes, except for the ten-year period to ensure the fiscal, accounting and administrative requirements required by law and, possibly, longer terms, not determinable a priori, as a consequence of different conditions of lawfulness of the treatment (for example, legal actions that make the treatment necessary for over ten years).
Legal basis and nature of the provision of data
The legal basis of the treatments referred to in point (A) described above lies in the consent, pursuant to art. 6, first paragraph, lett. a) of the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (General Regulation on Data Protection). The consent to the processing for the purposes described above is optional.
However, it is specified that the provision of data for the purposes referred to in point (A) is not mandatory but is essential for the achievement of the purposes described. The refusal to grant them will not allow you to participate in the study in question (point A).
The provision of data for the purposes referred to in point (B) is optional, not deriving from a regulatory obligation, but it is necessary to allow data to be stored for a longer period than that provided for the conclusion of the present study for possible future research activities and, if necessary, to contact you again to let you express, if it deems it, a new specific consent for a new research. Failure to provide the data for these purposes will have the sole consequence of being unable to implement the last described.
The provision of data for the purposes referred to in point (C) is necessary to comply with legal obligations regarding the conservation of administrative and accounting documents. In this case the legal basis can be found in the art. 6, paragraph 1, lett. c) and e), of Regulation (EU) 2016/679.
