By personal information is meant: data traceable to an “identified or identifiable natural person”. The name of a person to whom the data pertains is known or the identity of that person can be retrieved; in respect to this, think of the name of a person or a home or e-mail address.
Where your personal information is processed it is explicitly stated what information is used for what ends. Your personal information will only be used for the purpose for which you left it. Data may, however, be used for tracing purposes if, for instance, criminal acts are made or unlawful statements are made through the website; data will not be stored longer than is required for the purposes for which the data was requested.
For all processing of personal information it applies that only such information as you have yourself actively provided will be used. Processing of personal information happens in accordance with the relevant sections of the Personal Data Protection Act (Wbp). This means that personal information gathered, maintained, used or in any other way provided, linked as well as shielded through the internet is covered by said Act.
Personal information will only be processed if this has been explicitly stated and if the reason for storing your information is provided. We do not provide your information to third parties without your explicit prior consent, unless we are so obliged by law or a legal verdict.
