Like many other institutions, bupaR processes personal data. bupaR attaches great importance to the protection of these data and endeavours to treat them in a careful and responsible way, guaranteeing the privacy rights of all parties involved.

In this privacy statement, we inform you about how we handle your personal data, the purposes for which your personal data is collected, how you can exercise your rights and other information which may be of importance to you.

In order to meet the needs and requirements of society and its regulations in the best possible way, bupaR reserves the right to make changes to this statement. Therefore bupaR advises you to consult this statement regularly.

Purposes of processing your personal data

bupaR warrants that the processing of personal data is limited to the intended purpose.

The main purposes for which bupaR processes personal data are related to the newsletter subscription, or enrollment in bupaR courses and webinars.

All these data are treated with the utmost confidentiality and care and are not freely accessible. Employees and persons who work with such data on behalf of bupaR will only have access to them if this is necessary for the performance of their duties. Moreover, bupaR continuously works on appropriate technical and organisational measures in the field of information security.

Categories of personal data

For the performance of the various activities, it is possible that bupaR processes the following categories of personal data:

  • Name
  • Address
  • Town/City
  • Date and place of birth
  • Bank account number
  • Telephone number

In principle, these (personal) data will be provided directly by the parties concerned to bupaR.

Passing on data to third parties

bupaR will not rent out, sell or pass on personal data to third parties for financial gain. Personal data that can be traced back to individual persons will only be provided to third parties if there is a legal basis or obligation for this, e.g. if it is necessary to execute an agreement with the person concerned, or if the person concerned has explicitly agreed to the transfer of these data.

bupaR can instruct third parties to carry out certain tasks that entail the processing of personal data on its behalf. In that case, bupaR will enter into an agreement with that third party (processing agreement) which states that the third party will handle any personal data provided in a legitimate, confidential and careful manner.

Apart from the above-mentioned scenarios, bupaR will not provide your details to third parties, unless we are legally obliged to do so.

  • find out which of their personal data are being processed and, in the event that these data were provided to bupaR by a third party, request information about the source of these data;
  • request that data be corrected if it is inaccurate;
  • if a number of conditions are met, to ask to be ‘forgotten’ by the organisation that processes their personal data;
  • request certain data to be transferred to another organisation;
  • to object to the processing of his or her data in connection with fully automated processing (direct marketing, profiling, etc.);
