The Central Government Real Estate Agency handles the personal data obtained through this website with the utmost prudence. By personal data, we refer to information that can be used to identify individuals, such as a name, home address or email address. The protection of these data is regulated by the Netherlands Data Protection Act (WBP). This act provides for the protection of the privacy of citizens and also applies to personal information collected via the internet.
The WBP states that personal data may only be processed if this fact is expressly communicated to those involved. It must also be made clear for which purpose the data will be retained. This means that when you are asked to enter your name or (email) address, you must also be informed precisely for which purpose this information will be used. Your personal details will only be used for the purposes for which you have provided them. Additionally, they may not be retained for longer than is necessary for that purpose.
The law provides for a few exceptions to this rule. For example, the data may also be used for investigative purposes in the event that someone commits an offence or makes criminal statements.
If ministries maintain data profiles on their website, this must be communicated in advance. The profiles are intended exclusively to ensure that the website is better adapted to the needs of its users.
