Any personal data that is collected from you will be for the sole purpose of planning and organization of, and enrollment and participation from an EU location in, a distance learning study program and international certification at ÅGOT, and is necessary for that purpose. This may include processing the personal data as required to execute contractual obligations in connection with the previously described purpose and compliance with applicable laws, to execute the obligations to you concerning your enrollment and/or participation from an EU location in a distance learning study program at ÅGOT, including course attendance and other academic requirements.

Personal data will be handled and processed only by the persons who are responsible for the necessary activities for the purpose above, and may be transmitted from the EU to one of ÅGOT’s offices or institutes in Asia Pacific, Americas, Middle East.
