You are not obliged to provide your Personal Data. However, without your Personal Data we are not able to assure the correct functioning of our website and availability of all applications mentioned above.

We do not use the Personal Data you submitted online to enter into a contract. If at some point we need your personal data to draft a contract, we will always check your personal details with you.

Our CRM software provider, Hubspot, creates backups of our contact database which are stored across multiple locations. In the case that any of your Personal Data gets lost in one location, Hubspot ensures its retrieval through another backup location.


How do we protect your information?

Your personal information is contained behind secured networks and is only accessible by a limited number of persons who have special access rights to such systems, and are required to keep the information confidential. In addition, all personal information you supply is encrypted during transit via Secure Socket Layer (SSL) protocol.  We also perform regular Malware scans on all our systems.

We only provide articles and information. We do not perform or initiate financial transaction through our website and we never ask for credit card numbers.

To ensure the collecting and processing of your Personal Data serves the intended purpose, we have appointed a Data Controller.

Our Data Controller is Arthur Post Uiterweer.

We implement a variety of security measures when a user enters, submits, or accesses their information to maintain the safety of your personal information. For more information see the website of our website platform Hubspot (https://www.hubspot.com/security).

In the unlikely event a data breach should occur, we will take immediate action upon notification by our CRM software provider Hubspot, and notify you via email without undue delay as specified by the GDPR.
