Personal data and purposes of data processing In order to provide a good and personal service, we need some information. Below you can read what happens to this data after you have given it to us.

  • Asking a question or leaving a comment

On the website you can ask a question or leave a comment. Do this via a form, then you leave your name and email address. This data is stored on our website and the mail server of our hosting party (xxx). We only use this information to answer your question or to respond.

Your data is stored on our site and the server for a year. If you want this data to be removed earlier, please send us an email with this request. We can provide you with insight into the data stored on our website and the server at any time.

Traffic data Traffic data has to do with registering an IP address, installing a cookie, registering the click behavior and analyzing your navigation on our website. With the traffic data, we analyze the surfing behavior of our visitors. We look at how the navigation is used and which pages are visited, so that we can improve the awareness, functionality and content of our site (and digital newsletters).

Cookies are used on our website. A cookie is a small file that is sent along with the pages of our website and is stored on the hard drive of your computer by the browser. The information stored therein can be sent back to our servers on a subsequent visit.

When you visit our website for the first time, or on repeated visits after the cookies have been deleted by you, a message will be displayed (cookie agreement or cookie consent) informing you about the cookies we use. The moment you click on our website, you give us permission to use all cookies and plug-ins as described in this privacy and cookie statement, depending on the settings selected. You are free to disable cookies through your browser. Keep in mind that our website may no longer work optimally.

We have no control over what the provider of the above application does with the cookies itself. For more information about these applications and how they handle cookies, please see the privacy statements of this party (note: they can change regularly).

Special personal data We do not use so-called Special Personal Data. Our website does not intend to collect data about website visitors under the age of 16 unless they have the consent of parents or guardian. However, we cannot check whether a visitor is older than 16. We therefore advise parents to be involved in the online activities of their children, to prevent data about children being collected without parental consent. If you are convinced that we have collected personal information about a minor without that permission, please contact us by e-mail and we will remove this information.

We do not take decisions on the basis of automated processing on matters that may have (significant) consequences for individuals.

Identity data We process identity data for sending out newsletters. Below you will find an overview of the identity data that we process:

  • Name
  • Mail address
  • Topic about question / response (if applicable)
  • Question / reaction that is asked (if applicable)

When you register for the newsletter, your email address can be used for marketing purposes, but only for our company.

  • Newsletter: until the moment when you unsubscribe from the newsletter or let us know by email.
  • Questions and reactions: one year after this data has been left via the site or until you request us to delete this data by email.
  • Cookies: this data is stored by us for a longer period of time, but never longer than is necessary for carrying out activities.

For this you can contact us by e-mail or telephone. You can only exercise these rights via e-mail. To ensure that the request for inspection has been made by you, we request that you send a copy of your proof of identity with the request. Make a copy of your passport photo, MRZ (machine readable zone, the strip with numbers at the bottom of the passport), passport number and citizen service number (BSN). This is to protect your privacy. We will respond to this request as quickly as possible, but within four weeks. We would also like to point out that you have the option to file a complaint with the Dutch Data Protection Authority.

Security No physical copies are made of your personal data. Your data is only managed in the aforementioned systems and software from us and from the aforementioned processors. The devices that we use to access your data are each also protected with security software, a password and / or fingerprint. The number of devices that have access to your data is limited to only the required devices.

Our contact forms are secured. The pages are protected with a secure SSL connection, so your data is sent encrypted and it is impossible for third parties to view this data. You can check the security by right-clicking on the relevant page and choosing “Properties”. You now get a window with the connection information. “Connection” states that it is an SSL connection.

Data breaches where personal data is at risk should be, if possible within 72 hours, reported to the Dutch Data Protection Authority. If that fails, an explanation will be given for the delay. Both the nature of the infringement and recommendations about how potential negative consequences can be limited must be reported to the person(s) involved and to the Dutch Data Protection Authority. The obligation to report does not apply if it is unlikely that the infringement entails a high risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons.
