    Processing of and dealing with requests

    Van Oers shall only examine requests in respect of which Van Oers is considered to be the Controller. If this is not the case, you will be informed that the request will not be processed. If Van Oers is considered to be the Processor, it shall forward the request to be processed to the correct Controller. You shall be informed of that.

    If the request does not fulfil the stipulated conditions, you will be given the opportunity to modify the request within 2 weeks. If the request is not modified within this period of time, you will receive a decision stating that the request will not be processed.

    Van Oers shall provide you immediately and, in any case, within one month after receiving the request, information on how the request will be followed up. Depending on the complexity of your request and on the number of requests, if necessary that period of time can be extended by two months. If applicable, within one month of receipt of the request, Van Oers shall inform you of this extension.

    In some cases, we will be unable to carry out your request. For example, we do not delete the data if it is of substantial interest to us or if there is a legal obligation to keep it. We will inform you of this.


    Automated decision making
