Visits to the VHL University of Applied Sciences (VHL) website are private. No one should be able to see what pages you are visiting or what you are looking at, neither should they be able to gain access to your personal data. For this reason, we do everything possible to protect your private information. When processing personal data, we comply with the requirements established by the General Data Protection Act. These include the following:
In this policy statement, we explain what we do with your personal data, how you can change these data, and who to contact if you have any questions. We therefore recommend that you carefully read this privacy statement.
VHL processes your personal data, because you use our services or you have provided these data to us on your own. Below is a summary of the personal data that we process:
In some cases, VHL processes personal data that involve minors. We do not intend to collect or process the specific information of minors, but we are aware that some website visitors are underage. If you are a minor, you must receive your parents’ permission for us to process your information. We are not always able to check whether our website visitors are underage.
We also recommend that parents be involved in the online activities of their children in order to prevent the data of children from being collected without parental consent. If you get the impression that we have collected personal data about a minor without this consent, please contact us at [email protected]. We will process your complaint and if it is discovered to be true, we will delete the information regarding the minor.
VHL will not retain your data for longer than is strictly necessary to achieve the objectives for which the data has been collected. Our retention period is two years.
VHL shares your personal data with various third parties when required to comply with an agreement or to satisfy any legal obligations. We conclude processing agreements with companies that we commission to process your data in order to ensure that the same level of security and confidentiality is employed regarding your data. VHL is still ultimately responsible for these processing actions.

On behalf of these advertising programmes, www.vhluas.com uses advertising cookies that provide anonymous visitor information, such as the pages that have been visited, to relevant parties.

Please note! If you used one of the options above to opt out of targeted Facebook advertisements, you may still see advertisements from VHL on Facebook. This happens when Facebook links your profile to a general VHL advertising campaign, for example. We are not involved in this in any way. If you are unsure whether we have processed your opt-out request, please feel free to contact us at [email protected].
You have the right to inspect, correct, or remove your personal data. Please send requests for inspection, correction, or deletion to [email protected].

Please contact the Dutch Data Protection Authority to do so.
