How and why does ‘Arts Lab Research’ collect personal data?

‘Arts Lab Research’ collects personal data when carrying out its work. In most cases it relates to data that he requests from the person concerned or that the person concerned provides on his own. Think of a first telephone conversation between ‘Arts Lab Research’ and a (potential) customer or a situation where a (potential) customer sends an e-mail to ‘Arts Lab Research’. ‘Arts Lab Research’ will work as carefully as possible when processing personal data. An essential part of that care is transparency. It is important that third parties and those involved understand the way in which personal data are being used and the reasons behind it. That is why this statement has been drawn up.

Who is ‘Arts Lab Research’ exactly?

In many cases, ‘Arts Lab Research’ is responsible for the processing of personal data. ‘Arts Lab Research’ is contactable by mail at

Does ‘Arts Lab Research’ have a Data Protection Officer?

‘Arts Lab Research’ did not appoint a Data Protection Officer.

Which personal data does ‘Arts Lab Research’ process and why does he do this?

‘Arts Lab Research’ processes various types of personal data for various reasons. The data that is processed the most:

  • Identification data (name, e-mail address, contact person, phonenumber, Chamber of Commerce number)
  • Location data (postal and / or corporate address)
  • Financial data (bank account number, payment details)

In the case of a job application, ‘Arts Lab Research’ will process additional information, namely:

  • Composition of family, education level and job experience(s)

The first main goal of the above data processing is to create an agreement with the customer. That is why ‘Arts Lab Research’ and the customer must be able to communicate with each other. Consider, for example, making an inventory of the wishes of the customer and preparing an offer. The second main goal is to be able to execute the contract. Consider, for example, periodic consultation on progress. The third main goal is to enable invoicing for the work or services, as well as to facilitate payment (and, if necessary, collection). The last main goal is to inform the customer about developments that may be relevant to him or her.

Is ‘Arts Lab Research’ allowed to process those details?

‘Arts Lab Research’ processes personal data where necessary in order to establish or execute an agreement with a customer and / or a supplier. This is the case, for example, when a quote is requested or when an order is placed. Furthermore, ‘Arts Lab Research’ processes personal data if its own interests justify it. This will be the case if it is reasonably impossible for ‘Arts Lab Research’ to carry out its work without processing this data. Finally, in some cases ‘Arts Lab Research’ also requests permission to use the data. The formal legal grounds for processing are therefore:

  • that processing is necessary for the performance of an agreement in which the person a part is, or is made at the request of the person concerned for the conclusion of an agreement.
  • that processing is necessary for the representation of the legitimate interests of ‘Arts Lab Research’ (or a third party)
  • that the person concerned has given permission for the processing

With regard to legal grounds (ii), it applies in all cases to processing operations that are necessary for ‘Arts Lab Research’ to be able to realize its services. He simply cannot do his work (communicating with the customer, assembling documents, offering support, sending out invoices, etc.) without using the personal data of the customer. The importance that ‘Arts Lab Research’ has in these processing operations is therefore considerable. This is especially true now that there is no possibility for ‘Arts Lab Research’ to achieve its goals without making use of that data. ‘Arts Lab Research’ believes that its importance must be given priority when weighed against the interest of the person concerned. Firstly because he knows from experience that such processing as a rule does not encounter any objections. That is why he can take that as a starting point. Secondly, because ‘Arts Lab Research’ only uses the data that he actually needs to achieve his goal. Thirdly, because the relevant data is not kept any longer than necessary. As a result, ‘Arts Lab Research’ limits the infringement of the rights of the person concerned to the minimum. With regard to category (iii), permission given can be withdrawn at any time without giving any reason. The permission to process data via the website is requested when the website is visited.

Do these personal data end up with others?

In some cases, ‘Arts Lab Research’ will share personal data with parties with which it cooperates. These are so-called ‘processors’. ‘Arts Lab Research’ has concluded agreements with those processors. These serve to ensure that those processors (like ‘Arts Lab Research’ himself) handle this information carefully. For example, a processor is obliged under the agreement to ensure proper security, to deal confidentially with those data and to destroy the data.

‘Arts Lab Research’ does not intend to share personal data with parties other than processors.

At most, he foresees that, in a single case, information will be shared with (another) employee of the customer or with parties that are in direct contact with the customer.

Will the personal data remain in Europe?

This is the context of the European Economic Area (EEA). It consists of the countries of the EU, supplemented by Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland. All countries that fall outside it are considered a ‘third country’. ‘Arts Lab Research’ does not transmit personal data to third countries. The personal data therefore remains in Europe. If in an exceptional case there is still a transfer to a ‘third country’ then this will only happen to a country of which it has been explicitly established at European level that an appropriate level of personal data is guaranteed there.

How long will these data be kept?

‘Arts Lab Research’ stores the data collected by him for different time periods, depending on the category of data and the way in which they were collected. The precise terms are included in the register of processing activities that ‘Arts Lab Research’ has drawn up. When setting the applicable terms, ‘Arts Lab Research’ is initially based on statutory (minimum) periods. Think of the statutory duty to keep accounting information. Furthermore, where possible, ‘Arts Lab Research’ has sought to connect to the storage periods included in the Wbp Exemption Decision. For example, with regard to the contact details of the customer, a storage period of up to one year after termination of the relationship between the parties applies. Finally, ‘Arts Lab Research’ was guided by its interests and those of its customers when setting the storage periods. For example, it can be important for both parties that documents in which (further) agreements have been recorded are kept for more than two years. If such documents (such as mail correspondence, for example) contain personal data, they will then also be kept.

With regard to the data collected via the cookies on the website, the storage periods as described in the Cookie Policy apply.

According to the law, you are a ‘person concerned’ and those concerned have a number of specifically defined legal rights. You can submit a request to ‘Arts Lab Research’ to view, receive, change or delete your personal data. You can also object to the (further) processing of your data.
