Processing of personal data
I process your personal data because you use my services, and/or because you provide this data to me yourself, and/or because I request it from you. Below you will find an overview of the personal data that I process.
From private customers is collected:
•  First and last name
•  Address data
•  Phone number
•  E-mail address
From business customers is collected:
•  Company name
•  First and last name of contact person(s)
•  Address data
•  Phone number
•  E-mail address
•  VAT identification number (only if there is a delivery to another EU member state)
I process your personal data in a structural manner, only for the following purposes:
1.   Communication about an agreed or potential assignment, or significant changes to my policy; on the basis of contractual necessity and legitimate interests.
2.   Handling payments; on the basis of contractual necessity.
3.   Administrative retention obligation, including time registration and the sending of invoices and quotations; on the basis of compliance with legal obligations.
4.   For the proper execution of agreed projects, I keep a digital and a paper agenda (in the vast majority of cases this only includes a (company) name of the personal data); on the basis of contractual necessity.
5.   Building a relevant business network based on contact details provided by you voluntarily (and exclusively for this purpose) by email or business card; on the basis of legitimate interests.
6.   To promote my own work (marketing interest) I use platforms, including a personal website and online video services, which mention full credits per project, i.e. names of persons/parties I have worked with and company names of corporate clients (NOT of private clients); on the basis of legitimate interests.
Due to the nature of the first four purposes mentioned, it is mandatory that you provide the aforementioned personal data, such as name, address and IBAN, to me when requested. If you do not do this, it is not possible to enter into an agreement and you will not be able to use the services offered by me.

Automated decision making
I do NOT take decisions based on automated processing on matters that can have (significant) consequences for people. These are decisions taken by computer programs or systems, without human intervention.

Duration of the storage of personal data
I do not store your personal data longer than is strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which your data is collected. In connection with the administrative retention obligation of the Dutch Tax and Customs Administration, your collected personal data is stored for 7 years for the first four purposes mentioned. Then they are destroyed.
Keep in mind that the retention obligation also includes correspondence with customers. This is limited to written correspondence: only the most important e-mails are kept.
For the fifth purpose mentioned, building up a business network, personal data that I do not use (or no longer use) for more than 3 years will be destroyed immediately.
In case of the sixth mentioned goal, the promotion of your own work, any credits from cooperation partners/customers will remain with the item to which they belong, until it is removed from the website.

Sharing of personal data with third parties
I will not sell your information to third parties and will only provide it if this is necessary for the execution of the agreement with you or to comply with a legal obligation. Processor agreements have been concluded with parties that process your data on my behalf to ensure the same level of security and confidentiality of your data. I remain responsible for these processing operations. These parties are:
•  CijferMeester: accountant
•  MoneyMonk: online accounting program
•  iXL Hosting: website hosting & mailing (OX Suite)
