Privacy & Security at Etil 

Since 25 May 2018, everyone must comply with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). The advent of the GDPR has radically changed the legal framework for the protection of personal data. The regulation contains extensive obligations for businesses and strengthens the rights of the persons whose data is processed.

Appropriate Measures

We have taken appropriate measures to prevent misuse, loss, unauthorized access, unwanted disclosure and unauthorized modification. We have underlying contracts with external partners that guarantee safety. In this context, our partners and sub-processors of personal data are also ISO 27001 certified.

Data Protection

Etil has specially appointed a Data Protection Officer to ensure that our agreements regarding privacy and security are complied with. We adhere to all guidelines of the Association for Policy Research (VBO) and the expertise center for Marketing, Research and Analytics (MOA), to which we are affiliated as a policy and market research agency.

Process and save

We only process personal data if it is purposeful. For example, to contact us by telephone or e-mail. Or to be able to carry out an assignment on the basis of an agreement. We do not store data for longer than is strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which it was collected. If no agreement is concluded, we will not store data for longer than one year.

Provision to third parties

We only provide personal data to third parties if this is necessary for the execution of an assignment, or to comply with a legal obligation. In such cases, we point out to the other party the need to handle this data securely.

Google Analytics

We use Google Analytics to research how users use our website. General visit data, the time of retrieval and data that browsers send are kept. We use this data for analyzes of visitor and click behavior to improve the functioning of our website. This data is anonymized as much as possible and we do not provide it to third parties.
