Privacy Policy

SEAS, Estudios Superiores Abiertos S.A.U., was founded in 2003 with the purpose of being a leading provider of distance learning. We are part of the San Valero Group, which is dedicated to training, and in line with our Code of Ethics, we place great value on honesty and transparency. With our students, clients, employees and partners, we aim to build solid, long-lasting relations based on trust and mutual interest.

Pursuant to this philosophy, the protection of your personal data is very important to us, which is why through this Personal Data Protection Policy (hereinafter, 'Privacy Policy') we would like to explain how we collect and process this data.

SEAS Estudios Superiores Abiertos S.A.U.: SEAS Estudios Abiertos is fostering a European project to bring training and employment to areas with a low population density, known as 'Rural Needs & Mobile-Learning'. This was approved by the European Union within the framework of the ERASMUS+ programme (KA2 for development of innovation). This European project seeks to generate an intervention model that tackles specific problems detected within rural areas in Europe with a low population density. These are also characterised by ongoing ageing among the inhabitants and a lack of outreach services or trained professionals in the surrounding areas (Hereinafter, Rural Needs Project).

However, the organisations that comprise the Rural Needs Project, as well as SEPIE, may have access to your data. For further information on their privacy policies, visit their websites.

Your Personal Data may also be processed on our behalf by our security providers: we enter into contracts with trusted third parties who perform computer security and data storage operations on our behalf. They are only provided with the information they need to provide their service and we require them not to use personal data for any other purpose.



We only keep your Personal Data for the time we need them for the purpose for which you have authorised them or to meet our legal obligations. Thus, the following criteria are used to determine the retention time:

We are committed to protecting your Personal Data and taking all reasonable precautions to achieve this. Thus, upon receiving your Personal Data, we use security procedures and protocols to process to prevent them being lost or accessed without authorisation.

Thus, any data transfer is made at your own risk.
