Your privacy

8.1 You can access your personal data

If you want to access the data about you that we process, please let us know.

If you exercise your right of access, we want to provide you with a complete overview of your data as possible.

8.2 You can have your personal data corrected

It is possible that certain data that we stored about you are not or no longer correct. You may always ask us to correct or complete that data.

8.3 You can have your personal data removed

If you suspect that we process certain data unlawfully, you can ask us to remove it.

8.4 You can oppose certain uses of your personal data

If you do not agree with the way in which we process certain data, you may oppose it. Opposition that we will respect unless there are mandatory grounds not to do so, which is the case, for example, if we process data to combat fraud.

8.5 You may sometimes refuse to let your data processed fully automatically

Some data processing and processes are fully automated without human intervention. We try to impart the logic of this automated process when it is relevant.

8.6 You may ask to have your data transferred to a third party

You have the right to ask that personal data that you provided us with will be transferred to you or directly to a third party. The privacy legislation does have a number of restrictions to this right, so that it does not apply to all data.

8.7 You may exercise your rights

Always be as specific as possible if you wish to exercise your rights, so we can handle your request concretely and correctly. We do have to verify your identity, to avoid someone else exercising your rights. That is why we will ask for a copy of your ID card if you make such a request.
