Forms on or

The contact page of this website contains forms where you are asked for personal data. This personal data is stored in our AppSuite of Hostnet BV (on Dutch servers under Dutch jurisdiction) and is usually emailed to the specific department that has to process the data.

The data from forms are only sent by e-mail to the department for which the data is relevant. For example, a contact request for our products only arrives at the marketing or sales department. This is a mailbox that only people who are currently working in that position have access to. There is only a select number of employees who can access all form submissions for administration purposes. 

The data is only used to follow up a contact request. In addition to the data that you enter yourself, the time, IP address and the relevant page are stored to give more context to the form submission and in this way to be able to respond more fully to questions.
