The Higher Education for Good Foundation and its service provider Bluenove are dedicated to the respect for private life and personal data protection.

This information notice sets forth the undertakings and measures implemented to ensure the respect of personal data in the context of this collaborative approach.



Personal data is information enabling an individual to be directly or indirectly identified (for example: a surname, a photo, a postal address, an email address, a telephone number, an IT login, etc.)

We limit the nature of the personal data collected insofar as is possible. The data categories that we use are the following:

  • Registration data: your first name, your surname, and an email address (if you consent to share your contact information along the consultation),
  • Your Login data (your IP address, your login and use logs, as well as your cookie management preferences on the website) are anonymous.

We advise you not to publish data pertaining to your private life or any sensitive data (political and philosophical opinions, trade union affiliation, information on your health, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, etc.) on the website.

If you do not wish to be identified, we recommend that you participate under a username or a pseudonym, that you do not display a photo of your face and that you do not provide links to your personal social network accounts or any element that could enable you to be identified.



We only collect the data necessary for the use of the website and the collaborative approach. Your data will not be the subject of any commercial use by a third party, nor any transmission or transfer to anyone for commercial or prospecting purposes.

We use your data in order to:

  • enable you to register on the website and have access to its various functionalities,

It will no longer be possible for you to modify your contributions at the end of the participation phase. If you delete your account, your contributions will appear under the pseudonym “deleted user”.
