ZiuZ Holding B.V. Privacy and Cookie Statement

Application of Privacy and Cookie Statement

This Privacy and Cookie Statement explains how we, ZiuZ Holding B.V. (and all associated legal persons) hereafter ‘we’ or ‘ZiuZ’ handle your personal data when you visit one of the websites that we operate, including but not limited to https://www.ziuz.com, https://medical.ziuz.com and http://ziuzmedical.cn (hereafter: ‘websites’ or ‘our websites’).

 

Processing of personal data and the objectives

We process your personal data in the context of your visit to and/or use of our websites. ZiuZ processes your personal data with the objective of:

  1. making it possible for you to visit our websites, through use of essential and functional cookies, for example;
  2. identifying you when you contact us through the chat function on the websites, when you register for a ZiuZ challenge, for the newsletter and/or for a trial or when you use the job application form on the websites;
  3. further processing your application or registration for the topics listed under 2 and carrying out administration in this respect;
  4. sending you messages (including newsletters) – provided and insofar as you have registered for these – and/or otherwise contacting you in connection with the topics listed under 2;
  5. allowing the websites to function well through cookies, including the use of personal data for analytical objectives too.

 

Principles according to which we process your personal data

The processing of personal data for the above objectives is carried out on the basis of the following processing principles:

  1. The legitimate interests of ZiuZ in the processing of your personal data, which outweigh your privacy interests in the given circumstances (taking into account the impact of the processing on these). This processing principle applies for the following processing:
    • Processing of personal data that is required to be able to identify you and contact you in relation to a message you have sent, a job application form and/or a submitted registration form for challenges and trials. ZiuZ’ interest here is to be able to carry out its business activities and respond to your message in that context.
    • The processing of personal data (primarily through essential, functional and analytical cookies that have limited consequences for your privacy), which are necessary for the optimal functioning and operation of our websites. ZiuZ’ interest in this context is to offer our websites with the best possible functionality.
  2. The requirement for processing for the implementation of an agreement in which you are a party, or to take measures prior to the implementation of an agreement, at your request. This processing principle is applicable to the processing of your personal data in the context of a registration form submitted by you for the challenges and/or trials and/or a job application form submitted by you. If you do not provide us with this personal data, we may not be able to enter into an agreement with you in this context. Insofar as no agreement is entered into with you after processing of your registration form or job application form, the processing principle listed under 1 remains applicable in full.
  1. Your permission for the processing of your personal data in order to be able to send you a newsletter (and other commercial communication) and to be able to process cookies (other than functional and analytical cookies that have limited consequences for your privacy). You have the right to withdraw this permission at any time. This does not affect the legality of the processing of personal data on the basis of your permission prior to the withdrawal, however.

 

Storage period for personal data

ZiuZ will not store your personal data for longer than strictly necessary to achieve the objectives for which your personal data is collected, unless a differing legal storage period is applicable.

For the specific expiry periods for the various cookies, please see the table of relevant cookies further down this page.

Allowing cookies

ZiuZ always places functional and analytical cookies, which have limited consequences for your privacy. Other cookies – such as tracking cookies or cookies that have a major impact on your privacy interests – are only placed by ZiuZ if you have provided permission for this in advance. You provide your permission by clicking ‘Accept’ in the cookie notification on your first visit to the websites. This is not compulsory, however; you can use the websites even if you do not provide ZiuZ with permission to use these non-essential cookies. The website will not work optimally though. Once provided, permission can be withdrawn again (partially or fully), by taking the actions described below. This does not affect the legality of the processing of personal data on the basis of your permission prior to the withdrawal, however.
