Your privacy is very important to Computest. We therefore comply with the privacy legislation. This means that your data is safe with us and that we always use them properly. In this privacy statement, we explain everything we do with information we learn about you at the website Computest.nl. If you have any questions, or if want to know what information about you we keep track of, please contact Computest.
Purposes of data processing
Computest collects personal data when you register for a course, contact us using the contact form, apply for a job or download a white paper. We use your telephone number, e-mail address and name and address details for this purpose. We process your personal data for the purposes of entering into and implementing contracts for services and training in relation to software quality in the functional, performance and security sphere and managing the resulting relationships, including implementing activities aimed at increasing the customer base.
In order to process the data which are entered in the forms, we use SalesForce, our CRM system. Data that are requested through forms on our website are required for the above reasons. If you do not provide this personal data, we will be unable to contact you or, in the case of a newsletter subscription, inform you about our services and activities.
If you complete a contact, training, application or newsletter registration form on the website, complete a white paper or demo request form or send us an e-mail, the data you submit to us are kept as long as is required by the nature of the form or the content of your e-mail in order to fully answer and deal with it. Our retention periods are as follows:
Contact form: max. 4 years
Application form: max. 2 years
Request via e-mail: max. 4 years
Newsletter registration: until such time as you unsubscribe from the newsletter
Other forms: max. 4 years
Customer data: max. 7 years (including the data sent via the above methods, but only if a commercial relationship exists).
Provision of personal data to other companies or institutions
Security of personal data is very important to us. In order to protect your privacy, we take the following measures:
- Access to personal data is protected with a username and password and two-factor authentication
- After receipt, the data are stored in a separate, secure system
- We take physical measures such as locks and safes to prevent access to the systems in which personal data are stored
- We use secure connections (Secure Sockets Layer or SSL) which protect all information sent between you and our site when you enter personal data
- We run security checks on suppliers of software solutions as part of the selection procedure
- We have implemented a comprehensive package of technical measures for the security of our workstations and servers
We keep statistics about the use of our website. We use these statistics to improve our website in order, for example, to only show you relevant information. For this purpose, we use Google Analytics; see below.
Changes to this privacy statement
When our website changes, we naturally also have to amend the privacy statement. So always check the date above and check back regularly to see if there are new versions. We will do our best to also announce changes separately.
