Where we send your data to

Responses from visitors can be guided through an automated spam detection service. On this website we also use the reCAPTCHA function of Google. This function is mainly used to distinguish whether an input is made by a natural person or by automated and automated processing. The service includes sending the IP address and any other data that Google requires for the reCAPTCHA service to Google. Additional information about Google reCAPTCHA and the Google Privacy Statement can be found at: The use of this function means that your data is sent via ReCaptcha. How "reCaptcha" works Invisible Captcha, or reCAPTCHA, requires end-users to click on a button that says "I'm not a robot" and Google can determine whether the user should be asked additional questions (ie select photos that describe X best) to verify if that person is not actually a robot. ReCAPTCHA collects personal information from users to determine whether they are human and not blunt. What personal information does the reCAPTCHA collect?

  • First, the reCAPTCHA algorithm checks whether a Google cookie has been placed on the used computer.
  • An additional reCAPTCHA-specific cookie is then added to the user's browser and a full snapshot of the user's browser window is currently set pixel by pixel.

Some of the browser and user information that is currently being collected includes:

  • All cookies posted by Google in the last 6 months
  • How many mouse clicks you have made on that screen (or touches on a touch device),
  • The CSS information for that page,
  • The date,
  • The language in which your browser is set up,
  • All add-ins that you have installed in the browser, and
  • All Javascript objects

How we secure your data

To protect your personal data as optimally as possible against unauthorized access or unauthorized use, applies appropriate security technology. If you pass on data to us, this is always done via a secure connection. Of (attempted) abuse will of course be filed and also takes organizational measures to protect personal data against unauthorized access. For example, computers, laptops and telephones are protected with passwords, so they can never be accessed by third parties without encryption.

Which data breach procedures we have implemented

The computers and the network system are secured. If a data breach occurs and has consequences for those involved, the Dutch Data Protection Authority will be informed and inform you as a data subject.

From which third parties we receive data

Sometimes I receive data for the execution of the assignment via the chosen printing company.
