About us

POLONEZ BIS is a project coordinated by the Polish National Science Centre and cofounded by the European Union’s Horizon 2020 programme under Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.

Whenever we share personal information with third parties, they are required to use appropriate safeguards to protect personal information, and they can only access the personal information that is necessary for performing their specific tasks.

We may also have to share data with governmental authorities and regulators, as required under the applicable law.
