Privacy statement

In order to enable our services, Ypsylon processes personal data. Ypsylon believes it is important for you to know what personal information we collect from you, what purposes we use it for and how long we keep it. In this Privacy Statement, we want to describe this in a transparent manner. In any event, Ypsylon is committed to ensuring that your personal information is collected, used and stored with care.

What is Personal Information?

Information is considered personal data if it says something about a specific person or if it can be traced back to that person in combination with other information. Data of deceased persons and organisations are not personal data according to the law. There are direct and indirect personal data. Direct personal data include a person's date of birth, first name and surname, gender, address, passport photo, telephone number, e-mail address, Burgerservicenummer (BSN), bank account number and patient file. Indirect personal data includes data that is not directly related to the person, such as WOZ value, license plate number, the profit of a sole proprietorship and the IP address of a computer.
