What is personal data?

Personal data is information that can be traced back to you as a person. For example, your name, your home address or email address are personal data. On the website of the Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens (Dutch Data Protection Authority; AP) you can find more information about personal data and privacy legislation.

Why does EBN use your personal data?

If you would like to receive hard copy information from EBN, we need your address details to send you this information. EBN also stores the information provided by you when you request, for example, a brochure, the annual report or the infographic and processes this information when sending these materials. Under such circumstances, EBN uses your personal data on the basis of your consent.

EBN also registers your personal data when you visit our offices in Utrecht. You must always identify yourself with a valid proof of identity. When visiting our offices, your details will be registered by EBN. Your personal data is not processed any longer than necessary for the purpose of this process.

How long does EBN retain your personal data?

EBN does not process your personal data for longer than is necessary for the purpose of the data processing. If you have registered to receive information from EBN and subsequently deregister, EBN will delete your data. EBN does not keep your personal data any longer than necessary for sending you the requested information.

How does EBN secure your personal data?

EBN considers it very important that the personal data you provide are treated and secured with the greatest possible care. In order to optimally protect your personal data against loss, theft, unauthorised access or misuse, EBN takes the appropriate technical and organisational measures to secure your personal data, including the use of the latest security technology.

Does EBN provide personal data to other organisations?

The basic principle is that EBN does not share your data with others, with the exception of service providers who process personal data for the account of EBN and who are also bound by obligations and safeguards to protect your personal data. Under no circumstances will your data be sold. However, there are also exceptions where EBN is obliged to give personal data to others. These are always special circumstances, such as during legal proceedings or for crime prevention.

What are your privacy rights?

Pursuant to privacy legislation, you have various rights to maintain control of the personal data that EBN collects from you and processes. For example, you also have the right to inspect the personal data that EBN holds about you. The purpose of this right of inspection is to enable you to verify whether the data is correct and, if necessary, to make any amendments. You can also check whether EBN has used the data lawfully. In addition to the right of inspection, you also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data by EBN.
