Privacy statement

IDcentre understands that you do not want to share your personal and study data with everyone. That is why IDcentre handles this information with care. IDcentre adheres to the General Data Protection Regulation (in Dutch: AVG). IDcentre does need your data to be able to help you properly. In this statement, IDcentre explains which data IDcentre needs from you and what IDcentre uses them for.

Privacy rights

Your data belongs to you, which is why you have quite a few rights. For example, you have the right to ask us to change your address details. Below you can see which rights you have with reference to the Dutch Data Protection Authority.

  • Right to access
  • Right to rectification and addition
  • Right to a human view
  • Right to restriction of processing
  • Right to data portability
  • Right to be forgotten
  • Right to object

View, correct, update and delete your data

You may always view and/or correct or update your personal data. You can ask IDcentre to delete your data and no longer use them. In a number of cases you can indicate that you want IDcentre to use your data to a limited extent. IDcentre can also convert digital data, such as a registration confirmation or study agreement for you into a printable document.

Exercising your rights

If you want to exercise one of your rights, you should contact IDcentre.

You will receive a confirmation of receipt from us, after which we will process the request. You can only submit a request for yourself. Requests from third parties will not be processed (you cannot, for example, request access for someone else).

Our response

You will receive a response from us no later than one month after receipt of your request. If the request is very complex, it is possible that we do not have a (complete) answer for you at that time. IDcentre will then let you know that it will take longer. In any case, you will receive our final response within three months. If you do not agree with our response, you have the right to file a complaint with the Dutch Data Protection Authority.

Storage of your data

IDcentre stores the personal data that IDcentre receives from you or your employer. This concerns, for example, data that IDcentre receives during the registration process for a course or training (also when the process is interrupted or if you contact IDcentre by telephone or e-mail) or if you are hired by IDcentre as a guest lecturer and/or guest speaker.

We collect and store the following personal data:

  • name (first and last name), address, other contact details and, if applicable, a passport photo
  • details of your employer
  • information concerning the course or training you have registered for, including payment information
  • your feedback on the course or training and other information you provide
  • personal data in the context of your course or training, such as your attendance, any results and whether you have completed the course or training (successfully).

Use of your data

IDcentre uses your personal data for the following purposes:

  • the registration and administrative handling of your participation in the course or training you have chosen or your participation as a guest speaker and/or guest teacher
  • to take care of the course or training you have chosen
  • to perform analyses so that IDcentre can improve its services such as advising on a course or training to be followed
  • to keep you informed about all our services and products
  • to send you the documents or information you request and respond to your inquiries
  • to comply with the applicable legislation and regulations on education as prescribed by the (national) government.


Further explanation

  • IDcentre can make your personal data available to its accreditation organizations. In regard to obtaining and maintaining an accreditation for a course or training, IDcentre is legally obliged to sometimes give the committees responsible for the accreditation access to personal data. This is kept to a minimum by IDcentre.
  • In some cases IDcentre works together with external service providers, such as teachers and examination offices. They may only use your data for the performance of those services that are in the interest of your course or training. They may not approach you for other purposes or pass on your data to third parties.
  • Finally, IDcentre may be legally required by government agencies or other parties to share your information. IDcentre will then only share the strictly necessary data.

Security and retention period of your data

IDcentre protects your personal data against misuse and access by unauthorized persons through the techniques that are currently available. IDcentre stores your personal data for as long as is required by law. In the interest of improving its services, IDcentre can keep your data longer, but in that case IDcentre will always anonymize the data.
