You register with a network, sign up for a training or subscribe to a newsletter. When you use one of our services, we ask you for your personal details, so that we can provide you with good service. These could be your name, address, email address and telephone number.


We will use your personal data exclusively for the purpose for which you have provided it. If you entered your name and email address to subscribe to a newsletter, for example, we will not use the data to send you other information. Unless expressly stated otherwise, we will not pass on your personal data to third parties. Your data may be used by the authorities, if legally required.

If you ask us a question we may need to involve another organisation to answer this question. The data that we exchange with this organisation will only be used by them to answer your question.

When you subscribe to a newsletter, you can indicate a preference for certain topics. You will then only get to see news about those topics. We will save your preferences for as long as you are subscribed to the newsletter.

Under 16

If you are under 16 years of age, your parents or guardians need to give us permission to process your personal data.

We do not store your personal data for longer than necessary. For example, if you cancel your subscription to one of our newsletters, we will delete your personal data. We will process and protect your personal data with due care.

Request to see your registered details.

For newsletters you can also use the online unsubscribe option. Your data will then be automatically removed from the mailing list of the newsletter.


We cannot remove your data if we need it to carry out an agreement we have with you, or if we need to store your data for another reason. This is the case, for example, if you have applied for funding. When you apply for a job with us, we will store your information for the duration of the application procedure.


A request to see, amend, or remove your data is free of charge. If your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, Nuffic can decide not to process your request.
