Privacy statement

New GDPR legislation

This privacy policy describes how the ReSViNET Foundation (Broederplein 41 -43 Zeist, The Netherlands) collects, processes and uses the personal data of its donors, relations and webinar participants in accordance with the new European privacy law.

As of May 25, 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is the new privacy legislation (known in European terms as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)) and replaces the current Personal Data Protection Act (Wbp). In addition to the envisaged broader protection of personal data, the GDPR requires the controller and the processor to be accountable and verifiable for the entire data processing and security process. These are the principles of accountability and auditability as set out in the GDPR.

If you have any questions about your privacy or our privacy policy, you can ask them via the contact form on our website or via

Right to data erasure / oblivion (art 36 Wbp / art 17 GDPR)

The controller is obliged to delete personal data of the data subject without unreasonable delay, including when:
