Data Communications

Likewise, we wish to inform you that your compliance with the objectives laid out will result in the transfer of your data to the entities and organizations directly connected with the services rendered, to companies interested in the services of our students (job board), to the entities, schools and surrounding campuses of IESE, including those located in other countries, to offer information on their activities, news, courses and events of interest, as well as media outlets in charge of making rankings of business schools worldwide, mainly The Financial Times, Eduniversal, Bloomberg Businessweek, Forbes and The Economist so that they can issue surveys. As a result, you expressly consent to the international transfer of your data to the IESE Business School —New York (United States)— or other countries where IESE may have a campus, and to the United States to draw up the rankings.

Likewise, we wish to inform you that the data that you voluntarily choose will be incorporated into the Alumni directory accessible from our website, and that this data will be public for all members of the community, as well as for those participating in the activities and events that you sign up for. The published data is based on what you voluntarily include on your personal and professional profile.

If you have provided us personal information about a third party or provide it to us in the future you must have informed said party of the stipulations herein and received approval prior to providing the data.

In order to keep your personal information up-to-date, you must inform us of any changes. Otherwise, we will not be liable for the accuracy of the data on record. We assume that unless you deliberately cancel your personal data from our files you are still interested in being in our records so we can provide our services, send commercial information and maintain an archive of relationships with students in the future. Your data will be kept in our files until the person concerned explicitly asks for the data to be removed, even after the cancellation deadlines established by law, until IESE deems it appropriate and as long as it is appropriate for the established purposes.

IESE may modify this privacy policy to adhere to changes in personal data legislation or case law, so it requires users to read the policy every time data is provided to us over the Web.
