PRIVACY AND COOKIE STATEMENT EVIDOS B.V.

 

This Privacy and Cookie Statement was last amended on 18 May 2021.

The services and websites of Evidos B.V. (‘Evidos’) involve the processing of privacy-sensitive data known as personal data. Evidos provides its services under various names; hence, this Privacy and Cookie Statement applies to www.ondertekenen.nl and www.signhost.com. The careful handling of personal data is of great importance to Evidos. Accordingly, we process and protect personal data with the greatest possible care.

We adhere to privacy law requirements when processing data. This means, among other things, that we:

  • state clearly for which purposes we process personal data through the Privacy and Cookie Statement;
  • try to limit the collection of personal data to data required for legitimate purposes;
  • ask you for your express consent before processing your personal data in those cases in which your consent is required;
  • take appropriate security measures to protect your personal data and require parties who process data on our behalf to do the same;
  • respect your right to inspect, correct or delete your personal data upon request.

We are the controller in the data processing operations detailed below. In this Privacy and Cookie Statement, we explain which personal data we collect and use in our capacity as controller, and for what purpose. We recommend that you read this statement carefully.

 

The various roles of Evidos as ‘processor’ and ‘controller’

As briefly mentioned above, this Privacy and Cookie Statement applies in situations in which Evidos can be considered the ‘controller’, i.e. situations in which Evidos determines the purposes and means of the data processing. For example, Evidos is the controller with respect to customer administration, its employees and data processed in the context of application procedures. Evidos determines whether and, if so, which data are processed, how long these data are stored and when the processing of personal data is discontinued.

There are many situations in which Evidos, as a cloud service provider, takes on the role of ‘processor’. In that role, Evidos processes personal data on the instructions of its customers. In this case, it is the customers of the services concerned who decide that their personal data are to be processed and instruct Evidos as a supplier to do that. Evidos then carries out the instruction; it does not take any independent decisions with regard to these personal data. This includes, for example, the personal data of signatories processed via the signing service, and the documents signed through the services. Evidos is expressly not a controller with regard to these personal data. In cases such as these, you will have to be informed of the data processing by the organisation that sent the signing request to you.

Use of personal data

In using our website or service, you deposit certain details with us, which may include personal data. We collect and process these data solely for the purpose for which you provide them to us. Personal data may only be processed for specific, explicitly defined and legitimate purposes. These purposes are detailed below.

In addition, the collection and processing of your personal data is always based on one of the following legal grounds:

  • You have consented to the processing of your personal data.
  • Processing is necessary for the performance of the agreement and our services.
  • We have a legitimate interest in the processing of your data.
  • We are under a legal obligation to process your data.

Below, for each purpose we will describe the legal basis for processing your data and provide more information about our processing operations.

 

Purposes

The purposes for which we process your personal data are explained in more detail below.

 

Requesting a subscription via the website or on the basis of a quotation

You can purchase or apply for a subscription via our website. When purchasing or applying for a subscription, we will ask you to provide us with your company name, first and last name, email address, telephone number and IBAN account number, so that we can handle your request. When purchasing a subscription, you will also be asked to create an account. You will be able to add additional information in your account.

You can also request a quotation via our website or other communication channels without obligation. For this purpose, we will ask you to provide your company name, first and last name, email address and telephone number. We use that information to prepare and send the quotation, and to communicate about the quotation and the services. If you decide to sign our offer via our platform, we will also ask for the name and email address of the authorised signatory of your organisation so that we can send them the signing request.

We process the above data as part of our preparations for concluding the agreement between you and Evidos.

 

Provision of data to third parties

We register your data in our CRM application and online accounting package. In addition, we store the signed quotations within our IT supplier’s cloud environment.

 

– Product-specific requirements for the purchase of services

In certain cases Evidos is obliged by law, or pursuant to obligations imposed by its suppliers, to obtain additional information from you.

As regards the delivery of iDIN, this type of service falls within the scope of the Money Laundering and Terrorist Financing (Prevention) Act (Wet ter voorkoming van witwassen en financieren van terrorisme, Wwft) and Evidos is obliged to retain certain data of the UBO (Ultimate Beneficial Owners) and the duly authorised representative. UBO data to be retained are the first and last name, company name, date of birth and nationality. Duly authorised representatives must verify themselves via iDIN, which involves the processing of their first and last name, address, postcode, email address, signature, IP address and date of birth. Pursuant to the Wwft, these data must be recorded in the context of client screening to prevent money laundering and terrorist financing.

We process the above data in order to comply with our legal obligations.

Evidos provides support in various ways, for example by email, telephone and through our chat module. For the options available to register your questions and/or incidents, see the ‘Description of Service Level (Basic)’ or, if applicable, the Service Level Agreement (SLA) you have concluded with us. For example, you can start a chat via our website or within the online environment, send an email to our support desk or ask your questions by telephone. If you send an email, a ticket will be created internally and your question will be forwarded to the relevant department.
Via our ticketing system, customers who have purchased an SLA have their own environment in which they can view details such as the status of the tickets linked to their organisation.

Depending on the method chosen, we will ask you to share certain information with us. This may be your name and address details, and possibly your email address, telephone number, customer number and any information you provide yourself.

In addition, through the account environment Evidos will inform you about new functionality, maintenance work, possible malfunctions and any other matters relevant to the services you purchase from us. In doing so, we will only process your account data to ensure that the message reaches you.

We will process these data under the terms of our agreement with you.

 

Provision of data to third parties

We use the email services of a third party to send the newsletters. We use an external registration tool to register new product features.

 

– Other marketing activities

In certain cases, you may be contacted by telephone by a telemarketing agency engaged by Evidos. This agency will never contact you of its own accord, and will in this context only process your general company telephone number.

To that end, we may ask you to provide your name, company name, telephone number and email address.
We can also approach you by email. We will only do so with the consent of the email recipient, or using email addresses made available for this purpose.

We will process this data on the basis of your consent or on the basis of our legitimate interest in doing so.

 

Provision of data to third parties

Your data will be processed by the external telemarketing agency, the email service provider and/or our CRM application.

 

Statistics

We keep statistics on the use of our services and the website. As regards the provision of services, we keep internal statistics on the signing method used, the number of signing requests per organisation and the total number of successful transactions. We only process your company name in this context. The statistics cannot be traced back to any individual.

We will process these data based on the consent you have granted via the cookie banner and on the grounds of our legitimate interest with regard to these general statistics.

 

Retention periods

We will not retain the data for the aforementioned purposes longer than is necessary. This means that we will retain your data for as long as is necessary, for example, to provide our services to you, to perform the agreement, or until we are sure that you are satisfied with our services, until we have answered all your questions and as long as you are registered for our newsletter. We may need to keep your data for a longer period in connection with a statutory retention obligation, for example the obligation to retain tax records.

 

Provision of data to third parties

Apart from the provision of your personal data to third parties as described above, we will not share your information with other parties without your consent, unless we are required to do so by law (for example, if the police so requires in the event of a suspicion of a crime).

We enter into strict agreements with the parties that receive your data that clearly state which personal data are shared and why. We will ensure that your data are not used for any other purposes. We will also ensure that these third parties protect and destroy your data as soon as they no longer need them.
