Privacy Statement Creint
You are purchasing a product and/or service from us. To enable us to help you in the best possible way you have provided us with personal data. For instance, by sending documents to us, telephoning us, e-mailing us or writing a letter to us, visiting us or speaking to someone from Creint. We therefore consider it important that you can rely on us treating your (personal) data carefully and confidentially. In this statement we explain how exactly we do this.
What are personal data?
Personal data is any information about an identified or identifiable natural person. This means that the information either relates to someone directly or can be traced to that person. The fact that it must relate to a natural person implies that information about deceased persons or about organisations does not constitute personal data. Examples of personal data are: your name and address. Your telephone number and postcode plus house number are also personal data. Sensitive data such as those about a person’s race or religion or about your health are also referred to as special personal data. These must be given extra protection.
What do we use your personal data for?
The personal data that you provide us with will be processed solely for the following purposes:
- to perform the agreed work as efficiently and effectively as possible;
- to contact you as part of the service we provide;
- to send you a personal newsletter;
- for our marketing activities.
We use the personal data solely for the aforementioned purposes and will never pass on the personal data to third parties without your permission or on any other basis. If we are allowed to pass on the data with your permission or on some other basis, we will impose on the third party the same data protection and security measures as those that we apply ourselves.
Processing of the data takes place on the basis of one of the following principles:
- the processing is necessary for entering into and performing the agreement between you and Creint;
- the processing is necessary so as to comply with a legal obligation;
Whose personal data do we process?
We process personal data relating to our customers and visitors to our website. This forms part of our business operation. It is important to note that if you, as an organisation or business, pass on personal data about your employees to us, you are obliged to inform your employees accordingly.
Which personal data do we process?
We process the following personal data:
- First and last name
- Job title
- Company name
- Contact and invoicing address
- E-mail address
- Date of birth
- Financial data (for performing the service and/or for invoicing)
- Any other data that you may have voluntarily provided to us.
We do not process any personal data that we have not received directly from you.
How do we handle your personal data?
When processing personal data Creint complies with the rules prescribed by privacy legislation. This means that we only collect and process personal data if a basis and a purpose exist for doing such. Only the personal data that are necessary are collected and the personal data are then processed solely for that specific purpose. We take account of the nature of the personal data and apply a corresponding technical and organisational level of security to them. You can therefore rely on the fact that we handle personal data carefully, safely and in all confidentiality.
The provision of services by Creint makes it necessary for our employees to have access to your personal data. To guarantee the protection of your personal data in such cases as well, all our employees have signed a confidentiality agreement. In this way we oblige our employees to treat your personal data as strictly confidential and to handle with care the data that you have entrusted to us. It is also important to know that only authorised personnel are allowed to process your data.
Access to and correction of your data
We collect and process personal data relating to you but these data of course remain your property. We therefore offer you the opportunity at all times to see which data we hold in relation to you. If the information is incorrect, you can request that it be modified. A request to access or correct your data can be sent to the following e-mail address: email@example.com. You can also submit any questions about this Privacy Statement to the same address.
We store your data for no longer than is necessary for the purpose for which we have obtained the data from you. The criteria that determine the retention period for your data are: (a) the duration of the agreement with Creint, (b) the existence of a statutory retention obligation or retention period laid down by law or (c) the existence of a (potential) claim or dispute which requires the data to be retained.

How long do cookies last?
Cookies have a certain lifetime. Some cookies are removed when you close your browser. Others (for instance, those with log-in data) may remain on your computer for years if you do not remove them.
In most cases you cannot see the exact purpose of a cookie. As we wrote before, cookies are small text files, but the content of those small files is usually computer code.
That is why we would like to explain this further.
- to ensure that our website works properly;
- to identify users: this gives us an insight into the number of visitors to our website and which section of our website they visit;
- to place advertisements that fit your interests.
When you revisit our website, Creint recognises you by means of permanent cookies. Our website can therefore be specially adapted to meet your preferences. If you have consented to the placing of cookies we can remember this by means of a cookie. As a result you do not have to repeat your preferences on each occasion, which saves you time and makes our website more user-friendly. You can remove permanent cookies via the settings in your browser.
The use of session cookies enables us to see which sections of the website you looked at during your visit. This allows us to adapt our services as much as possible in line with the surfing behaviour of our visitors. Session cookies are automatically removed as soon as you close your web browser.
With your consent we place tracking cookies on your device. These cookies can be retrieved later when you visit a website that forms part of our network. As a result we can find out that, in addition to our website, you have visited another website or other websites that form part of our network. The tracking cookies can also be used by advertisers who are in the same network.
Tracking cookies are used to build up a profile. This profile is not linked to your name, address or e-mail address. It serves solely to bring advertisements into line with your profile so that advertisements are as relevant as possible to your needs.
You can remove tracking cookies via your browser settings. Some tracking cookies are placed by third parties who display advertisements to you, for example via our website. You can remove these cookies centrally so that they are not placed back in a website of a third party.
Via our website a cookie from the American company Google is installed as part of its “Analytics” service. We use this service to keep track of and obtain reports on how visitors use our website. Google can provide this information to third parties if Google is legally obliged to do so or if third parties process the information on behalf of Google. We have given Google permission to use the Analytics information it obtains for other Google services. The information that Google collects is stored as far as possible on an anonymous basis. We have concluded a processing agreement with Google.
Our website includes buttons with the aim of promoting or sharing web pages on social networks such as Facebook and Twitter. These buttons work via pieces of code that originate from Facebook and Twitter themselves. Cookies are placed by means of this code. We have no influence on this. Please read the privacy statements of Facebook and Twitter (which may be regularly modified) to find out what they do with the (personal) data that they obtain via these cookies. The information that they collect is stored as far as possible on an anonymous basis. The information that is transferred to Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn is stored by them on servers in the United States.
Right of access and correction or removal
You have the right to request access to and correction or removal of your data. To prevent abuse of this right we may ask you to provide proper proof of tour identity. Where this involves access to personal data that are linked to a cookie, you should also include a copy of the relevant cookie. You can find this in your browser settings.
Switching cookies on and off and removing them
Cookies may transmit your personal data to all sorts of businesses. If you do not (or no longer) want this, you must remove the cookies from your computer, tablet or mobile phone. Removing cookies is not very difficult, but you must bear in mind that after their removal you will have to create a new log-in for websites and your passwords may possibly no longer be remembered. It is also possible that pages may need to be reset.
