Privacy & Cookie Regulations
Novatug B.V. and your privacy
These Privacy & Cookie Regulations will explain to you how we handle your personal data. We deem it essential that this is made clear to everyone. Your information is in safe hands with us.
Who is responsible for the processing of your personal data?
Novatug B.V. is responsible for the processing of personal data.
What are personal data?
Personal data includes any information that can be traced back directly or indirectly to you as a person, such as your name and email address, but also, for example, your telephone number or date of birth. Any handling whatsoever of such personal data is called ‘processing’. The legal significance of the concept of ‘processing’ is broad and, among others things, it encompasses the collection, saving, consulting, use, and also the removal of personal data.
Whose personal data do we process?
We process the personal data of persons with whom we are, were, or want to be engaged in a relationship, directly or indirectly. This may include:
- Contacts or potential contacts at organisations that we consider to be our customers or suppliers, or with whom we have a business relationship in any other sense.
- Those applying for a job vacancy.
Why do we process personal data?
We process your personal data for the following reasons. We have included a number of examples of processing for each objective.
1. To engage in and maintain a relationship with you
If you or the organisation that you represent want to become a customer or a supplier of ours we will ask for personal data from you. If you apply for a vacancy or want to work with us or undertake an internship we will also need your personal data.
2. To provide you with feedback
We make use of your personal data at the moment when you contact us, for example, by requesting information through our website or by completing our registration form.
3. To carry out marketing activities
We process data for marketing activities in order to provide proper service and offer optimal support to you as a contact and to the organisation that you represent, for example, so that we can inform you about our products and services by telephone or email.
How long do we keep personal data?
We do not process more data than is necessary for the objectives specified, neither do we keep your personal data for longer than necessary. We do retain financial administration, which may sometimes include personal data, according to the prevailing legal requirements.
With whom do we share your personal data?
In some cases we do share your personal information with third parties, but only with your consent. This is because we use contractors or external systems for some types of work. We take care only to use contractors who take appropriate safety precautions for the protection of your personal data and who are able to guarantee confidentiality. These third parties may be permitted to use your personal data for their own marketing activities.
How do we ensure your privacy?
We attach great value to privacy and have a Privacy Officer, who supervises compliance with privacy regulations and protection. The Privacy Officer is the central contact for both the organisation and the regulatory agency. In addition, we have employees who are responsible for the security of our IT infrastructure in general and for the General Data Protection Regulation in particular. All our employees have signed a non-disclosure agreement, and we ensure that employees only process your personal data if this is necessary in the context of their function.
Our website may include links to social media such as LinkedIn, Twitter and YouTube. These Privacy & Cookie Regulations do not apply to such social media sites, and the use of social media is therefore your own responsibility. We advise you to read the privacy regulations of these social media carefully so that you are aware of what may happen to your data. Many social media providers are domiciled – and will store your personal data – outside the European Union. As a consequence, your personal data may not be protected at the same level as it is within the European Union.
Our website may include links to other external websites. These Privacy & Cookie Regulations do not apply to such websites. We try to keep external links updated and ensure that they refer to the correct websites but we are not responsible for the content of external websites or the way in which they may handle your personal information. We recommend that you always check the way in which such external websites will handle your personal data.

Which rules apply to the processing of personal data?
Legislation and regulations exist for the protection of personal data. The General Data Protection Regulation has been in effect in the Netherlands since 25 May 2018. This law supersedes the Personal Data Protection Act.

You always have the right to ask us about the personal data we process. Within a maximum of four weeks you will receive an overview of your personal data as held by us.
