Provision to third parties
For the processing of personal data, the CHE uses service providers, who act as processors on behalf of and for the benefit of the CHE. Processors work on the basis of a processor agreement arranged for that purpose. In addition, the personal data is not provided to third parties, unless the CHE is obliged to do so under specific legislation.
The CHE - together with any processors - ensures appropriate organizational and technical security of personal data. In this way, we ensure that this data is only accessible to persons who are authorized to do so by virtue of their function or task and that the information is only used for the purposes for which it was obtained and based on legal agreement. The CHE ensures that personal data are only processed or managed within the European Area and not outside.
Procedure for reporting data leaks
If you think that personal data of CHE students or employees are accessible to unauthorized persons or if you have a suspicion that this may be the case, we ask you to report this immediately via email@example.com.
This will set the procedure for analyzing, solving and possibly reporting to the Dutch Data Protection Authority in motion.
The CHE protects your safety and property, and this includes camera surveillance in its buildings. The images from these cameras are automatically destroyed. Camera images can be transferred to the police if a crime is suspected.
Student and employee personal data are stored (and deleted) in accordance with the retention periods listed in the documentation of the Association of Universities of Applied Sciences (VH).
The CHE constantly aims to increase staff and students' awareness regarding safe handling of personal data. From May 2018, extra attention has been drawn to proper handling of personal data and information security. At least one awareness campaign is organized every year with regard to privacy and information security for students and staff.
The CHE reserves the right to make changes to the Privacy Statement. We, therefore, advise you to read the Privacy Statement for any changes regularly.
