Why this statement?
We are responsible for protecting your personal data as well as possible. We want to be transparent about the types of data we process, the processing goals, with whom we share data and which rights you have. We will inform you about this in our privacy statement.

Processing your data
When you request a service or product from us, we ask for personal data. You provide this information to us. If you are a client with us, we can also ask you directly in certain cases.

Personal data
The information we process about you depends on the contact we have with you:

  • If you visit our website and use our systems, we collect information about your visit to our site, cookies and cookie settings via your IP address.
  • We use cookies that play a functional role within our website or services. This category of cookies is necessary to ensure that the website works properly.
  • We use cookies that play an analytical role within our website or services. These cookies are necessary to permanently connect our websites to the wishes of our users by identifying in an anonymized manner how users use our websites. Given the small impact of these cookies on your privacy, no permission is required for the use of these cookies. These analytical cookies also include cookies that are used by third parties for the benefit of C.N. Rood to be placed and read, such as HotJar and Google Analytics.
  •  If you request information from us, we ask you to provide your contact details so that we can send the information to you.
  •  If you become a customer, we will in any case need your contact details (name, address, place of residence, telephone number and e-mail address). We use this information for the execution of the agreement we have with you.
  • If you apply for a job with us, we will ask for your resume, any diplomas and possibly other personal details. We retain this data, after your consent, for a maximum of 12 months after you have applied for a job with us.

Financial details
If you are a customer with us, we use your bank account number for our financial administration.

Information about your contact with us
When you have asked us a question or when you file a complaint with us, we process information about the contact you had with us. We will record your complaint in our administration.

How do we get personal data?
In most cases we receive the data directly from you. We can also receive and process data from other parties such as the Chamber of Commerce. We record in our processing register from which sources we have received data if these sources are known to us. We will inform you as much as possible about the sources from which we have received the data.

Why do we process personal data?
We process personal data with the following goals:

For the execution of our services
We use personal data to contact you.

Reduce risks
We use personal data to reduce risks, including:

  • ensure good security by storing user names, passwords and audit questions, for example.
  • carrying out internal quality research on possible problems and risks.
  • ensuring that we remain a healthy company (risk management).

Marketing activities
We will keep you informed about our services. Through e-mails, newsletters, our website and social media we can keep you informed of new developments and additional services that may be relevant to you. Would you prefer not to receive this information? Then you can unsubscribe via a received message.

Improve and innovate
We use personal data to keep improving our products and services. To do this we make reports and analyzes of our services. When drafting this, we delete where possible the personal data we do not need, we can also bundle data at a certain level of abstraction (aggregate), encrypt (pseudonymise) or make anonymous.

On what legal basis do we process personal data?
Processing of personal data is only permitted if we have a legal basis for this. We apply the following principles:

  • The processing is necessary for the execution of the agreement.
  • The processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation, for example requesting a copy of your identity card to identify you.
  • The processing is necessary for the representation of a legitimate interest.

We make a weighing of interests between the legitimate interest of us or of a third party and your interest.

How do we protect personal data?
We handle personal data with care and have taken technical and organizational measures to protect personal data against loss or unlawful processing. Think of measures to use our website and IT systems safely and to prevent abuse. But also the security of physical spaces where data is stored. We have an information security policy and ensure that our employees have knowledge in the field of personal data protection. Only authorized personnel can view and process your data. We oblige our suppliers of software and IT systems to take at least equivalent security measures. All our employees have a confidentiality statement. Employees promise and / or declare that they adhere to the laws and regulations and codes of conduct and act with integrity.

How long do we keep personal data?
We do not store personal data longer than necessary. In some cases, the law determines how long we may or must store data. In other cases, we have determined for ourselves how long we need your data. We have drawn up a retention period policy for this.

With whom do we share personal data?
We share personal information with third parties if this is permitted by law and is necessary for our business operations. We share personal information with:

  • Our employees, when they are directly involved in the service or insurance taken out by you or your employer;
  • Departments, subsidiaries and sister companies. This allows us to process your request efficiently and we have an overview of the services that you purchase from us. This allows us to better serve you and, for example, you only have to make a change once.
  • The government if we are legally obliged to do so. You can think of the Dutch Tax Authorities, Police, Justice or Supervisors, the Dutch Data Protection Authority;
  • Companies we hire to provide services for us related to our services. You can think of communication companies, email and marketing platforms, hosting companies, web developers or other marketing and IT consultants.

We can also outsource the processing of personal data to third parties. According to the law, those third parties are then processors of personal data. For example, we use IT service providers for maintenance and support functions. Such parties are considered processors because they do not have independent control over personal data in the context of our products and services. We remain responsible in those situations for the careful processing of personal data.

What are your rights?
The General Data Protection Regulation gives you a number of rights that you can exercise in relation to us. You can read which rights these are and how you can exercise these vis-à-vis us.

View or improve data
You have the right to ask us which personal data we process from you and to have incorrect data modified or removed. You can send our Privacy department a request for inspection or correction via the contact details below:

Privacy Department
Data Protection Officer
Blauw-roodlaan 280 2718SK Zoetermeer (NL) / Z.1 Researchpark 40, 1731 Zellik (BE)

We ask audit questions or questions for a copy of your ID to identify you. You will receive a response from us within 30 days.

When issuing a copy of your proof of identity, you must make your passport photo and citizen service number BSN (Netherlands) invisible. We also recommend that you indicate on the copy that this copy is intended to exercise your rights in relation to your personal data. Removing data and the right to ‘forget’ In a number of cases and under certain conditions, you have the right to have the personal data that we have deleted from you deleted.
This is the case if:

  • the personal data are no longer required for the purposes for which they were collected or processed;
  • you make well-founded objection to the processing;
  • your personal data have been processed unlawfully by us;
  • we are legally obliged to delete the personal data.

The right to be forgotten is not an absolute right. If we do not comply with your request to have your personal data deleted, we will inform you about the reasons why we will not comply with your request.

Limitation of processing
If you believe that we are unlawfully processing your personal data or that the data processed by us are incorrect, you can request that the processing be restricted. This means that the data can no longer be processed by us.

Transfer of data (data portability)
You have the right to receive a copy of the personal data that you have provided to us for the performance of an agreement that you have concluded with us. This only concerns personal data that we have received from you and not data that we have received from third parties. The purpose of this right is to enable you to easily transfer this data to another party.

Right of objection
You have the right at all times to object to the processing of your personal data that takes place on the basis of our legitimate interest or the legitimate interest of a third party. In that case, we will no longer process your data unless there are compelling legitimate grounds for processing that weigh more heavily, or that are related to the institution, exercise or substantiation of a legal claim.

Unsubscribe from offers
We can approach you for offers. You have the right to unsubscribe from newsletters or offers about our and related services. In commercial offers we always mention an opt-out option.

Changes to the privacy statement
The privacy legislation is in motion. We can therefore amend this privacy statement to stay up-to-date. We do this in the event of new developments, for example if something changes in our business activities or in law. We therefore recommend that you review this privacy statement regularly when you visit our website. We will also actively inform you about changes to this privacy statement by means of an e-mail or news item.
