Eurekaweek is the controller, within the meaning of the GDPR. Eurekaweek regards it as essential that the personal data of its students, researchers, employees and visitors are handled and secured with the greatest possible care. We also want to be open about the way in which we process your data. For that reason, we explain this below. Priority is given to compliance with the requirements of the GDPR in all cases.
Eurekaweek uses your personal data that we gather for its business operations and for correct implementation of its statutory tasks and obligations for education and research. The main purposes for which Eurekaweek processes personal data are:

Eurekaweek gathers (personal) data directly from you, and where applicable, Eurekaweek also receives personal data from third parties, in as far as this is in compliance with the law.
If you grant Eurekaweek permission to use personal data, you can always withdraw this permission at a later date.
How does Eurekaweek ensure confidential handling of personal data?
Eurekaweek treats personal data as confidential. Eurekaweek takes appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect personal data. Eurekaweek shares personal data only in accordance with this Privacy Statement and with third parties only if this is warranted and takes place with care.
Your personal data will not be leased, sold or shared in any other way with or provided to third parties. Eurekaweek may share your (personal) data with third parties if, for example, you have personally granted permission for this or if this is necessary for the execution of the agreement.
Eurekaweek provides personal data to enforcement authorities or fraud control organisations if this is necessary in order to comply with a statutory obligation.

Eurekaweek stores your personal data in compliance with the GDPR. The data are not stored for longer than is strictly necessary in order to realise the objectives for which the data are gathered.
You can send a viewing or correction request to Eurekaweek. Clearly state that this concerns a viewing or correction request pursuant to the GDPR. You can also request the deletion of your data, but this is only possible in as far as Eurekaweek can still comply with its statutory obligations, such as the statutory term for storage. Bear in mind that you may be required to provide a copy of an identity document in order to verify your identity. You can make a secure copy of your proof of identity quite simply with the government ‘Kopie Id’ app which you can download in the app store.
