In order to fulfill your requests, we process the following data:

  • When you visit our website: your agreement or refusal to the placing of cookies. This is done by placing a functional cookie. We do this to ensure the website works optimally for you. You can read more about this in our cookie statement.
  • When you contact us via the contact form on our website: your name, e-mail address, telephone number, and any other (personal) details that you share with us, including of course your comment (request, question or complaint). We do this to be able to take note of your comment, to contact you and to keep your informed of the progress of the handling of your comment.


We cannot fulfill your requests without having the above information.


In the context of our legitimate interest (being able to improve our website and in the context of compliance with laws and regulations) we process the following data:

  • When visiting our website: the unique identification and statistics regarding pages viewed, traffic to and from the website, the time of your visit, the referring URL, any keywords you use, the operating system you use, the web browser used, specifications about the device or equipment you use, your IP address and, if provided by you, your name and e-mail address. This data helps us to measure the interest in our website and to promote the user-friendliness of the website. You are not obliged to provide the data referred to here and you can prevent this by only ticking the necessary cookies in the cookie banner.  
  • Following complaints or reports: information about (alleged) infringements of intellectual property rights and/or other unlawful actions. In addition, we may proceed to provide (personal) data to third parties, such as beneficiaries, supervisors, tax authorities, judiciary, police and other investigative bodies, if Topicus is obliged to do so on the grounds of legislation and regulations or sees reason to do so on the basis of this statement.



Cookies

We use the cookies mentioned in our cookie statement for the purposes stated therein.


Here you can determine your cookie setting (agree to all cookies or refuse preference and/or analytical cookies) and adjust them at any time. Disabling (certain) cookies can lead to our website no longer working optimally.


Please note: withdrawing your consent with regard to the placing of certain cookies, does not affect the legality of the previous processing of your data, when your consent was still applicable.



Third parties

Your personal data will not be shared with other parties, apart from the purposes mentioned above and with the exception of hosting parties and data analysis companies engaged by Topicus.


Third parties used by Topicus must comply with strict security requirements and have undertaken to Topicus not to use the data for purposes other than those mentioned above. Therefore they are not allowed to use the data for their own purposes.


Third parties used by Topicus can be parties from the USA. Topicus is aware that the Privacy Shield has been declared invalid and that this has consequences for the transfer of personal data to these parties. Topicus is currently investigating how it can best overcome this, for example by agreeing model clauses with these third parties and also encrypting the data. When there is clarity about a definitive solution, Topicus will inform you about this via this privacy statement.


Storage period

Topicus does not store your personal data longer than necessary for the purposes described in this privacy statement. This will be in any case no longer than a few months after your request has been processed.


The information associated with the visitor and resulting from the use of the website will only be kept longer in a form that no longer makes it possible to identify the visitor.  


For the storage periods of the cookies we use, please refer to our cookie statement.


Security

The security of your personal data meets the requirements set in the applicable laws and regulations.


The website is protected with an encrypted connection (256-bits SSL – shown by the lock symbol in the browser) to ensure security between the computer of the visitor and the servers of Topicus.


Request, modify, limit or delete your personal data

You have the right to inspect and correct your personal data. You also have the right, in certain cases, to request Topicus to have your personal data removed or to limit its processing.
