How does the NCTV process your personal data?

Information about which data is used for which purposes is precisely stated in cases where your personal data is processed. The NCTV uses your personal data solely for the purpose for which you have provided it. That means that if you fill in your name and address to have a brochure sent, for example, this information will not be used to also send other brochures to you unless you have stated that that is what you want. Personal data that you provide to register for a conference is deleted once the conference has been held. It also means that the NCTV will not use your data for other purposes, such as to send press releases. Data can however be used for crime investigation purposes if offences are committed via the site or if criminal statements are made (and also in the case of the exceptions provided for in Section 43 of the Dutch Personal Data Protection Act). Personal data is not kept for longer than what is necessary for the purpose of collecting it. Only the information that you have actively provided is used for all cases in which personal data is processed.

The Person Data Protection Act (Wet bescherming persoonsgegevens, Wbp) helps to protect the privacy of citizens. The Wbp is applicable, among other things, to data processed via the websites of ministries. The Personal Data Authority is the regulatory authority for the Personal Data Protection Act.
