This document has been prepared in compliance with article 13 of Decree no. 196/03 (Privacy Code), which requires data subjects to be given information about the processing of their personal data..

The Alma Mater Studiorum – Università di Bologna is updating its privacy policies pursuant to the new EU Regulation 2016/679 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data.

In the next few days this privacy policy will be brought up to date.

In the meantime, the current privacy policy is supplemented by the information published on the Privacy Policy Update pursuant to the EU General Data Protection Regulation (2016/679)" webpage (in Italian).


This information therefore addresses those persons who provide their personal information for the purpose of initiating and promoting various forms of collaboration with the University of Bologna with regard to internships and job placements. These activities are carried out with a view to enhancing the skills and employability of students and graduates, contacting them to promote internship opportunities and helping them to make their professional decisions.

1. Purpose and methods of processing

1.1. Data provided by the data subject

Whether provided in advance on signature of the agreement with the University of Bologna, or during the life of the agreement or after its termination, the personal data of the coordinator and the organisation represented is collected and used solely to the extent allowed by law and by the regulations.

Processing is carried out with or without the support of electronic equipment, in compliance with the general principles of transparency and propriety and without exaggeration, as specified in article 11 of the Privacy Code. Furthermore, data is processed exclusively for the performance of institutional activities and/or for the purposes specified in Regional Decree no. 271/2009.

In particular, the data of coordinators and any addresses associated with them is processed by the University in order to carry out the following activities:

  • set down agreements
  • activate curricular internships
  • activate training and guidance internships
  • provide information and guidance during the degree programme
  • provide work-related information and guidance
  • provide information and carry out placement-related activities and events
  • consult with social partners on course design matters.

1.2. Credentials and e-mail

In addition to the data provided by the data subject, following signature of the agreement and/or after accreditation, coordinators will also receive a username and password granting them access to the system for the update of their personal data and that of the agency/company represented. The credentials are also provided so that proposed internships can be published on-line directly, as well as to publish offers of work and to consult and save the complete CVs of the graduates/undergraduates of the University of Bologna.

Data may be communicated to other public or private parties solely for the above-mentioned purposes. In addition, in order to allow access to the services offered, the ordinary personal data of the coordinator and the contact data of the agency/company may be communicated to students and graduates.
