Right of information

The Privacy Policy of the Spanish National Cardiovascular Research Center (CNIC) underlines the need to regulate the access and use of the services, educational opportunities, events and employment offered by the Center either through the website or through paper application forms.

In accordance with the principles of the Organic Law 15/1999, of 13 December, about Personal Data Protection, the users of CNIC's services must be informed as to the existence of different automated personal information files, being the CNIC the holder responsible for the management and maintenance of the above mentioned files.

User Consent

Sending personal data to CNIC via electronic forms, paper, e-mail messages or other ways, means that the sender authorizes the processing of personal data included in the indicated media and in services and products related to the purposes of the CNIC's website, as well as to send him electronic communications with information related to CNIC and its projects (if this has been indicated on the application form).

All the technical resources necessary will be at the disposal of the users in order to express unmistakably their consent as to the incorporation of their data into CNIC's files.


In compliance with the Royal Decree 1720/2007, 21 December, which approved the implementation of Regulations of the Personal Data Protection Organic Law 15/1999, and according to the type of data being used, all the security levels required for data protection have been adopted.

As well, in order to avoid the modification, loss, fraudulent access and stealing of personal data contained in the indicated files, all the available technical and organizational measures have been properly implemented.


This privacy policy only applies to the CNIC web page. This privacy policy is not guaranteed in the access of links by this website nor in the links from this website to other websites.

Although CNIC has taken all the security measures legally foreseeable, one must keep in mind that no data is entirely secure on the internet and for that reason CNIC will not be responsible for the use of information due to theft or any use as a consequence of illegality by third parties.

The record files (log files) are the historical records of everything that occurs on a website (users' entry and exit [IP address], website from which they come, dates, country, etc.). CNIC can analyze this information to see the flow of traffic on the internet website, the contents most visited and the main navigational routes; all for the objective of adapting the internet website contents to the expectations of the users who visit our site.
