Types of Data collected 

Among the types of Personal Data that this Website collects, by itself or through third parties, there are: Cookies; Usage Data; first name; last name; phone number; email address. 

  • Personal Data may be freely provided by the User, or, in case of Usage Data, collected automatically when using this Website. 
  • Unless specified otherwise, all Data requested by this Website is mandatory and failure to provide this Data may make it impossible for this Website to provide its services.

Legal Basis for Processing 

Our legal basis for the processing of personal data is our legitimate interests, although we will also rely on contractual obligations to which you are subject, legal obligations and consent for specific uses of data. We will rely on contractual obligations if we are negotiating or have entered into a placement agreement with you or your organisation or any other contract to provide services to you or receive services from you or your organisation. We will rely on legal obligation in some cases, where we are required by local laws or regulations to process your data. We will in some circumstances rely on consent for particular uses of your data. Where we rely on consent, you will be asked for your express consent.  

Methods of processing 

The Owner takes appropriate security measures to prevent unauthorized access, disclosure, modification, or unauthorized destruction of the Data. The Data processing is carried out using computers and/or IT enabled tools, following organizational procedures and modes strictly related to the purposes indicated. In addition to the Owner, in some cases, the Data may be accessible to certain types of persons in charge, involved with the operation of this Website (administration, sales, marketing, legal, system administration) or external parties (such as third-party technical service providers, mail carriers, hosting providers, IT companies, communications agencies) appointed, if necessary, as Data Processors by the Owner. The updated list of these parties may be requested from the Owner at any time. 

Social Media 

You can also connect to us through LinkedIn via the links on our home page. Please note that we are not responsible for the content or privacy practices of non-NextWave Consulting or non-Infinium Consulting B.V webpages to which this site may link. 

Retention periods 

We will not process your personal data for longer than is useful for the purpose for which it was provided (see the section on ‘Goals of and bases for processing’). This means that your personal data will be kept for as long as it is necessary to achieve the relevant goals. Certain data must be retained for a longer period of time (often 7 years) because we have to comply with statutory custody obligations (for example the fiscal retention obligation) or in connection with instructions from our professional association. 

Security 

We have taken appropriate organisational and technical measures for the protection of the personal data insofar as these can reasonably be required of us, taking into account the interest to be protected, the state of the technology and the costs of the relevant security measures. We oblige our employees and any third parties who necessarily have access to the personal data to secrecy.  

Furthermore, we ensure that our employees have received a correct and complete instruction on the handling of personal data and that they are sufficiently familiar with the responsibilities and obligations of the AVG. If you appreciate this, we will gladly inform you about how we have designed the protection of personal data. 

Your rights 

You have the right to inspect, rectify or delete the personal data that we have from you (except, of course, if this would interfere with any legal obligations). You can also object to the processing of your personal data (or a part thereof) by us or by one of our processors. You also have the right to have the information provided by you, transferred by us to yourself, or directly to another party if you so wish. 

Incidents with personal data 

If there is an incident (a so-called data leak) regarding the personal data concerned, we will inform you without delay, subject to compelling reasons, if there is a real chance of negative consequences for your privacy. We will aim to do this within 72 hours after we have discovered this data breach or have been informed about this by our (sub) processors. 

Invalidation of the EU-US Privacy shield 

A recent ruling (July 2020) by the EU, invalidates the EU-US privacy shield. As such we have recently amended our privacy statement to align with this new ruling. In the EU we work with several parties; Siteground (web-site)MicrosoftFreshteamsScoro and Surveyanyplace. Google Analytics is US based and there are on-going privacy discussions with the EU. We have taken measures to anonymise user IP addresses and to remove any Personal Identifiable Information (PII) that is passed to Google from our web-site. All users to the web-site also now have to consent to the Cookies prior to using the site. 

 Amendments 

It is possible that our privacy policy needs further amendment and improvement in the future. We, therefore, reserve the right to make changes to this privacy statement. The most recent version of the privacy statement can always be found on our website. 

Finally, we hope that with this privacy statement we have given you a clear picture of our privacy policy. If, however, you have questions about how we handle personal data, please let us know. The first point of contact for privacy aspects at our organisation is our nominated data protection representative, and can be contacted at the following: 

HR@Nextwave.co.uk or operations@infinium.consulting.
