Welke persoonsgegevens verzamelen wij?

DDI kan onderstaande persoonsgegevens van jou verwerken als je website bezoeker, kandidaat en/of zakelijke relatie bent van DDI. Je bent zelf mede verantwoordelijk dat wij de beschikking hebben over juiste en relevante gegevens.

What about Data Security?

DDI has implemented commercially reasonable technological and operational security measures designed to protect personal information. Only authorized DDI employees have access to your personal information, and those employees are required to treat such information as confidential.

Data may be stored et external parties like Carerix.com as a Software as a Service Provider. Data may be stored outside The Netherlands, but in the EU.

What happens in the event of a Data Breach?

In the event a breach occurs and unauthorized access, collection, processing, release, or any similar unjustified disclosure of personal information occurs, DDI will take all reasonable steps to mitigate any damages. DDI will notify the affected individual of the breach, and where necessary, the appropriate authorities. The aforementioned notification may include a report concerning the circumstances in which the breach occurred, any damages that might have arisen as a result of the breach, and the steps DDI took to mitigate damages.

Sensitive Personal Information

Sensitive personal information or data refers to certain personal information that data security laws afford special protection because of the nature of the information and the increased risk to the individual if compromised. Sensitive personal information includes social security or other identity numbers, data about your personal life (including health, genetic and biometric information), racial or ethnic origin, nationality, political membership, religious affiliation, sexual orientation or other similar information. DDI generally does not collect sensitive personal information. If we did collect sensitive personal information from you, we would only do so with your prior express permission and understanding of how we intended to use such information. However, if you voluntarily provide us with sensitive personal information on an unsolicited basis, you agree to allow us to use that information for purposes that comply with applicable laws and this Privacy Policy.

Binding Arbitration

Should you believe DDI has violated its obligations under the GDPR, and that such violations remain unremediated, then you have the option to invoke binding arbitration. The arbitrators making up the Privacy Shield Panel (“Panel”) have the authority to impose individual-specific, non-monetary relief necessary to remedy the violation of the Principles only with respect to the individual. No damages, costs, fees, or other remedies are available, and the Panel is required to consider other remedies that have been imposed by other mechanisms under the Privacy Shield.

What about Unsolicited Information?

DDI will treat all unsolicited information – information we received but did not request – with all reasonable safeguards to maintain the security of the individual who provided it. DDI will determine if the information is necessary to satisfy the purpose(s) for which the unsolicited information was provided, and if the information was provided with the consent of the individual. If the unsolicited information does not meet the above standards, then it will be destroyed or de-identified (made anonymous so that the information cannot be attributed to a specific individual) in order to protect the privacy of the individual.

Links to websites outside of our own

Our website may contain links to other websites, however, DDI does not control these sites or their privacy practices. Please be aware that any personal information you provide to websites other than our own, is not covered by this Privacy Policy. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any company or website and raise any questions with that company before submitting any of your personal information.
