Transfers of personal data to third parties
For the processing of personal data, COMPETING can make use of service providers that act as processor only on behalf of and for the benefit of COMPETING. Processors work on the basis of a processing agreement concluded for that purpose. No personal data will be provided to third parties outside this, unless required to do so by specific legislation.
COMPETING, together with potential processors, ensures appropriate organisational and technical security of personal data. In this way, COMPETING ensures that this information is only accessible to persons who are authorized to do so by virtue of their position or duties. The data itself is only used for the purposes for which it was obtained and on the basis of a legal basis. COMPETING ensures that the storage, management and processing of the personal data takes place within the European Union.
Procedure to report personal data breaches
If a data subject suspects or believes that personal data of students or employees of COMPETING are accessible to unauthorized persons, we ask you to report this directly via the general number of COMPETING or at the service desk. Reporting ensures that the procedure for analysing, resolving and possibly reporting to the AP of the data incident will come into force.
Online media monitoring and web care
COMPETING uses the services of Obi4Wan B.V. for online media monitoring and web care. The purpose is to provide information to people who make their requests known through social media and to monitor the reputation of COMPETING. Obi4Wan contains an online search engine that searches public data from sources such as Facebook, Twitter, other social media, blogs, news sites and forums. This is done on the basis of the name of the COMPETING organisation and associated entities. Obi4Wan collects these public data but does not use it for its own purposes. As a processor of personal data, Obi4Wan is therefore responsible for data protection.
