Privacy Policy

Laatste update: 29 september 2018

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect on 25 May 2018. This is European privacy legislation designed to give EU citizens more data protection rights and more control over their personal data.

The Brain Research Center considers it important to handle your personal data with care. We would like to inform you about the way in which we handle your personal data, what rights you have with regard to personal data that we process about you, how you can exercise these rights, and where you can go with questions about the processing of your personal data. Below you will find a brief summary of our Privacy and Cookie Statement. This summary only provides a limited and incomplete overview of the way in which the Brain Research Center handles your personal data. If you would like to be fully informed, please refer to our Privacy and Cookie Statement.

What is meant with personal data?

Personal data means all information relating to an identified or identifiable living person. Several pieces of information that, when added together, can lead to the identification of a person, also make up personal data.

From whom can we collect which personal data?

We collect personal data from (potential) participants in clinical studies. For example, we can collect name and address details and a bank account number from these (potential) participants. We also collect personal data from employees and applicants. Think of your CV or references. We may collect an e-mail address and cookies from suppliers and third parties, such as anyone who has subscribed to our online newsletter via our website.

For what purposes do we use your personal data?

Why do we actually need this personal data from you? This personal data may be necessary, among other things, to investigate the possibility of participating in a clinical trial, to carry out clinical studies, for our administration, or for the application of legislation or regulations.

On what basis are your personal data processed?

The basis for processing personal data may, for example, be that you have given your explicit consent for this. You can of course always withdraw this permission. In addition, the execution of an agreement concluded with you can also form a basis for the processing of your personal data.

How long do we keep your personal data?

We do not store your personal data for longer than is necessary to achieve the purposes stated in the Privacy and Cookie Statement in conjunction with the principles stated therein. The Privacy and Cookie Statement also states how long we keep certain personal data.

Who do we share your personal data with?

These third parties are required to treat your personal data confidentially. In the Privacy and Cookie Statement, you can also read with which parties we can share your personal data in specific cases.
