Your privacy and NMC Bright
At NMC Bright we think it is very important that we give full disclosure on how we deal with your personal data. You can trust that we will handle your personal data with the utmost care and will never share them with third parties. Furthermore, personal data provided to us will always be dealt with confidentially. NMC Bright’s storage and processing of personal data is in line with the regulations as determined by the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In this privacy statement we guide you through our policy.
Personal data includes all data that (in)directly relates to you as a person. Examples of personal data includes: your name, email address, phone number, address, date of birth etc. We refer to the ‘processing’ of personal data whenever an entity uses this data for whatever reason. The legal definition of the concept ‘processing’ includes: gathering, saving, consulting, using and deleting personal data.
Whose personal data do we process?
We process data of: people with whom we (in)directly want to establish a relationship, people we have (had) a relationship with, people who took part in NMC Bright’s research projects, (potential) contacts from organisations we consider to be our clients, suppliers or other business-like relations, people who visit our website and applicants who want to work/intern at NMC Bright.

NMC Bright is responsible for the processing of your personal data
To what ends do we use your personal data?
We process your personal data for the down-below presented purposes. A couple of examples are given for each of these purposes:
- To establish and maintain a relationship with you. In case you, or the organisation you represent, want(s) to be our customer, we need your personal data. The same applies when you, or the organisation you represent, want(s) to be our supplier, or when you apply to work/intern at NMC Bright.
- To conduct research. We need the names and email addresses of our target audience when we send out surveys. During audit-and other visitation programs we gather data of people/organisations in order to give the best advices and deliver the quality work expected from us.
- To give tailored advice or execute marketing related activities. In order to provide you, the customer/organisation, with the best possible services and preferred channel of communication, we process your personal data for marketing purposes. This allows us to provide you with updates on our products and services via phone and/or email.
How long do we store your personal data?
NMC Bright processes personal data for the sole purpose of serving the above-stated goals, which means we try to keep the gathering and storage of personal data to a minimum. In relation to this, we do not store your personal data longer than necessary. We store data for the duration of the required period to meet our legal and regulatory obligations. In general, this is a period of two, five or seven years.
With whom do we share your personal data?
We do not share your personal data with third parties and we provide participants of our surveys with information on how we deal with anonymity in conducting research.
How do we guarantee your privacy?
At NMC Bright we care about privacy. That is why we have employed a Privacy Officer who controls/evaluates how NMC Bright complies with privacy regulation and -protection. NMC Bright’s Privacy Officer is the contact person for both the organisation as well as the supervisor. Additionally, NMC Bright employed an expert who is in charge of securing our IT-infrastructure, with a focus on the GDPR specifically. All our employees have signed a confidentiality contract. The only employees who have access to personal data are the ones who need it to carry out their tasks.
On our website we published links to our social media channels, like LinkedIn and Twitter. The terms as described in this privacy statement do not apply to these social media accounts. The usage of social media is one’s own responsibility. We would advise to read the privacy statements as enforced by these different media outlets so that you know what happens to your personal data at all times. A lot of social media providers have their head offices outside of the EU, which means they store your personal data outside of the EU. Because your personal data is stored outside the EU the possibility exists that security standards do not comply with the same privacy standards as enforced within the EU.
