  1. General principles for processing personal data

The regulation regarding processing of personal data provides a framework to ensure that personal data is handled properly. ORA ACADEMY will at all times ensure that personal data is:

Processed fairly, lawfully and transparent
Adequate, relevant and not excessive
Accurate and up to date – inaccurate or incomplete personal data will be rectified or erased or further processing suspended
Not kept for longer than is necessary
Processed only for a specific, explicit and legitimate purpose and only processed in line with the purpose for which it is gathered.



What personal data we collect and why we collect it

We will collect and process your personal data in a number of ways when you engage with us via various channels, including our website.

Some of the personal data is necessary to process in order for us to provide you with the services you have requested and some personal data you can choose to provide voluntarily. We will always let you know which personal data is necessary (e.g. via the use of an asterix (*)) and the consequences of not providing such data to us, for instance that we will not be able to (fully) satisfy your request.

The personal data that we collect and process can generally be divided into the following categories:

Contact information such as name, address, phone number, email address, title, place of work, etc.
Information that you provide when contacting us via online contact forms
Profile information in case you create a profile or account with us, including username and encrypted password

In the initial stages of recruitment, we do not collect and process special categories of data such as race or ethnic origin, political opinion, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic/biometric data, sexual orientation, and/or health. We may, however, need to collect special categories of personal data or criminal records at a later stage in the recruitment process if local employment regulations require.



When visitors leave comments on the site we collect the data shown in the comments form, and also the visitor’s IP address and browser user agent string to help spam detection.

An anonymized string created from your email address (also called a hash) may be provided to the Gravatar service to see if you are using it. The Gravatar service privacy policy is available here: After approval of your comment, your profile picture is visible to the public in the context of your comment.



If you upload images to the website, you should avoid uploading images with embedded location data (EXIF GPS) included. Visitors to the website can download and extract any location data from images on the website.
