We feel very strongly about the importance of privacy in this matter and therefore, we handle the information we gather with great care. Read on if you want to know how we do this. If you have any questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Sensitive information Interactive Voting System B.V. collects and uses
We do not collect any sensitive information, such as religion/belief, race, political preference, health, sexuality, membership of a union, criminal past or social security number.
We also do not have the intention to gather and use information about website visitors who are younger than 16 years of age, unless a parent or a guardian has given permission to do so. However, we have no way of knowing if a visitor is really 16 years of age or older. This is why we recommend parents and guardians to be involved with the online activities of their children and, in this way, prevent information to be gathered without permission. Are you convinced that we are gathering information about a child without permission from a parent or a guardian? Please let us know at email@example.com and we will delete the information.

- Send you e-mails containing information about your order.

Interactive Voting System B.V. makes decisions based on automated processes (algorithms) that may have the following consequences for you:
- Regional targeting: we gather and use location information to be able to advertise locally. This way we can show advertisements to people who are visiting from Dronten, for example.
How long Interactive Voting System B.V. retains information
Information may not be retained longer than necessary. Therefore, how long we retain information depends on what kind of information it is and what we use or have used it for. In some cases, the law states that certain information has to be retained for a certain period of time. Personal information is retained for a maximum of 3 months. Do you have any questions about this or how long we retain other information? Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How information is shared with third parties
We share your information with business partners and third parties when this is necessary to provide the service or deliver the product you want, or when the law dictates us to do so. There are other cases in which we share information about you with third parties, but this will only happen when we have your explicit permission to do so.
We enter into a processor agreement with any third party that, by our request, gathers, uses or processes information about you. This way, an equal level of security and confidentiality is ensured. Interactive Voting System B.V. remains responsible for these processes. We make use of the services and/or products of the following companies, all of whom we have signed a processor agreement with:
Webhosting and e-mail services are provided to us by KPN Internedservices. KPN Internedservices processes personal information in our name and does not use this information for their own goals. They can collect meta-information, however, to improve their own services. This is not personal information. KPN Internedservices has taken technical and organisation precautions to prevent loss or unlawful use of information.
We make use of the services of an accountant, Unit4. We share all relevant details of your order and/or invoice and this information is used for our administration.
