Specific Privacy Statement

VALOR is the electronic platform for the dissemination and exploitation of results of projects funded by the Education and Culture Directorate-General (DG EAC). The new Dissemination and exploitation platform will offer a comprehensive overview of all projects funded under the new Erasmus+ and Creative Europe programmes as well as of some projects funded under the previous programmes (Life Long Learning, Youth in Action, Culture…).


The relevant legal bases are:



- the Regulation No 1295/2013 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 11 December 2013 establishing the Creative Europe Programme (2014 to 2020).

- the Decision No 1720/2006/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 15 November 2006 establishing an action programme in the field of lifelong learning. EU OJ L327 of 24.11.2006

- Decision No 1855/2006/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council of 12 December 2006 establishing the Culture Programme (2007 to 2013, see annexe point IV).

For what ends will the data be used?

The data will be used to give information about projects financed by European Commission programmes in the fields of education, training, youth, sport, culture and audiovisual.

What sort of information is collected?

Information about the projects, such as:

  • contact details for the contractor and his partners: address, telephone number, fax, e-mail, url.
  • professional information about the contact person in the contracting organisation: name, first name, e-mail
  • other specific information, such as the project target group, the duration of the project…

Information on the project results

  • Only the contractor inserts information relevant to the results of the project that he wishes to be available to interested parties.

What technical means are used?

The information is published using standard computer technology; information is used coming from Pegasus and E+Link for the new generation of programmes (Erasmus+ and Creative Europe), from Youthlink, ADAM and EST data bases for the projects belonging to previous programmes.

Who is the data communicated to?

The information on the projects is available to the general public on the Erasmus+ and Creative Europe dissemination platform websites.

How can I have access to my information, in order to verify its accuracy and, if necessary, correct it?

Any request for modification must be sent by mail or electronic mail to the address of the National Agency or the Executive Agency responsible for the management of the contract.

The information on the project comes from the contractor himself, being the information submitted in application phase and recorded in the management systems. A specific procedure in the VALOR system foresees that any change in the fields contained in the basic project card is modified automatically through a technical update of data from the management tools, where the latest changes are always reflected.  

How long are contact details held?

The retention of personal data will be ten years after the end of the programme

Who can I contact if I have questions or complaints?
