Of course this is done with cookies. We never share our customer base directly with Facebook, Instagram or LinkedIn.

We may also be subject to a statutory obligation to use your data, for instance when we suspect fraud. And sometimes you personally gave us consent to use your data, e.g. when you subscribe to the newsletter. We keep proper records of this.

Barring the provisions set forth below, only the people who were authorized by HTT to secure and/or to otherwise process personal data and/or to perform IT maintenance activities have access to the personal data of the Users. We only transfer your data to other parties if this is actually required for our services.

Are you under the age of 16? Then ask your parents for consent to use our websites and apps, to create an account, to subscribe to newsletters or to participate in competitions. Let them read this Privacy Statement.

Where is your data stored?

We store your data in several databases. We always use strict security measures. Data of candidates is always stored within the European Union. In the exceptional instance that customer or candidate data is transferred to countries outside the European Union, we ensure that your data remain protected in an appropriate manner. If a data breach is observed then we act according to the data breach procedure.

How long do we retain your data?

We retain and use your data no longer than necessary. After that we delete all data that we have of you. Or we use your data anonymously because we need certain data for internal analyses and reports, e.g. the value of our order.

This sounds nice and simple but how does it work in practice? We observe certain periods after which we delete your data. Namely, the following periods:

  • We delete inactive customer accounts after 7 years. After this period we only use your data anonymously, for internal reports.
  • The Dutch Tax Administration compels us to retain our administration with your invoicing, payment details for 7 years. After that we only use anonymous data for internal reports.
  • If you subscribed to the newsletter or gave consent to receiving personalised messages then we retain the said consent for 5 years. Also if at some point you decide that you no longer want to receive the newsletter or personalised messages, we retain the revocation of your consent. After this period we only use your data anonymously, for internal reports.
  • We retain data that we use to prevent fraud for a very long period. Not nice, but necessary.
  • Candidate data (e.g. resume, motivation letter, test results and notes) are stored for 1 year after closing of the application process. We store your data se we can easily approach you if there are new opportunities that fit your profile. After 1 year we will reach out to you again to request your permission to store your date. If you don’t want us to store the information please reach out to us.

 

What are your rights?

Of course you remain in control over your data. Do you want to obtain free insight into your personal data and receive a copy? Or do you want to correct, delete or protect your data or adjust your email preferences? No problem. Let us know by email. This way you can also object to the use of your data for marketing purposes or indicate that you feel that your privacy outweighs our interest. In that case we examine the situation again.

Unsubscribing to the newsletter is done in a flash. You can do this with the link at the bottom of the newsletter. And do you no longer want any cookies at all anymore? You can also configure this yourself. We want to make sure that you really are who you say you are. That is why we may request additional information to establish your identity. We also do this in case of unclear requests.
