In this privacy and cookie statement, we explain what SmartSpotter does with the information we obtain from you. We obtain different types of personal data from you when you visit our website, www.smartspotter.com, when you use our services or the SmartSpotter app. For each purpose, we indicate which data we obtain from you, for what purpose we process this data and for how long it will be retained.

A social media and Internet screening may form part of the application procedure. This is necessary to ensure our image is maintained when hiring new staff.

This, of course, insofar as these profiles are public; we will not ask you to provide us with access to a restricted social media page or to establish a connection with us. The results of the screening will be discussed with you. If you object to this, you can indicate this by e-mail when you apply.  

 

reCAPTCHA
We use the reCAPTCHA v2 (“I'm not a robot” Checkbox) service of Google Inc. (Google) to protect our website against spam and misuse. For Google reCAPTCHA to work, the IP address of a website visitor, mouse movements and possibly other data are collected. To that end, this information is sent to and processed by Google. By analysing this information, Google can determine whether we are dealing with a real website visitor or a robot. For more information, please refer to Google’s privacy statement.

When can we share your personal data with third parties?
SmartSpotter only shares your personal data with third parties if this is permitted under current legislation. We may provide your personal data to third parties because:

  • we have engaged them to process certain data;
  • it is necessary to perform the agreement with you;
  • you give consent for this;
  • we have a legitimate interest in this;
  • we are obliged to do so by law (for example, if the police require this when a crime is suspected).

The parties that process personal data in our or your assignment are:

  • IT suppliers and service providers
  • Cookie service providers

  • Partners

To be able to provide our services, SmartSpotter may disclose your personal data to parties located outside the European Economic Area (EEA). SmartSpotter will only do this if there is an appropriate level of protection for the processing of personal data. This means, for example, that we use a model agreement from the European Commission or make agreements about the handling of personal data.
