    YaWorks regularly organizes indoor and outdoor events, where both employees and relations are present.

Insofar as the images concerned can be regarded as personal data, we believe that we have a legitimate interest in publishing them (combined with a brief report of the relevant event). If and insofar as those involved find this objectionable, they can make this known before, during or immediately after the event, and we will of course take this into account.

    Who does YaWorks share personal data with?
    Inside YaWorks
    YaWorks only shares personal data within our organization with employees for whom it is necessary to have this data for the performance of their function. Naturally, everyone within the organization is subject to secrecy.

    Outside YaWorks
    YaWorks shares your personal data with various third parties if this is necessary for the execution of the agreement and to comply with any legal obligation. We conclude a processor agreement with companies that process your data on our behalf to ensure the same level of security and confidentiality of your data. YaWorks remains responsible for these processing operations. In addition, YaWorks provides your personal data to other third parties:

    • Clients of YaWorks
      YaWorks shares personal data of employees and candidates with clients in the event of a (possible) deployment. When introducing employees and candidates to (potential) clients, we use a YaWorks CV, containing data that those involved have provided to YaWorks for this purpose.
    • Processors and responsible parties
      YaWorks works together with suppliers who process personal data on behalf of YaWorks. Before engaging these suppliers, we review the security measures they have in place and ensure compliance with privacy regulations.

    If there is a request for personal data from the police or judicial authorities, YaWorks will only provide it if there is a legal obligation.

    What rights do data subjects have?
    YaWorks always respects the rights of those involved with regard to personal data. Some rights data subjects can always invoke, while others can only do so under certain conditions. For example, YaWorks cannot comply with the request of data subjects to delete personal data if we are legally obliged to keep this data for a longer period of time.

    Data subjects have the following rights:

    • Insight. You can view your own personal data or request a copy from YaWorks. You will then receive this in electronic form.
    • Correction. You can change incomplete or incorrect personal data.
    • Removal. You have the right to request that YaWorks delete your data. This request will be granted, unless we are legally obliged to keep the data or have compelling interests.
    • Withdrawal of consent. You always have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of personal data.
    • Transfer of data. You have the right to request YaWorks to process personal data with another controller.
    • Objection. You have the right to object to the processing of personal data by YaWorks or another controller, if you have well-founded objections to this.

    The aforementioned rights are only available to data subjects with regard to their own personal data. The rights cannot be exercised for personal data of others. YaWorks therefore reserves the right to request identification from data subjects.

    To exercise these rights, you can always contact YaWorks at or +31 20 664 64 51. We will contact you within 10 working days. To ensure that the request for access has been made by you, we ask you to send a copy of your proof of identity with the request. Make your passport photo, MRZ (machine readable zone, the strip with numbers at the bottom of the passport), passport number and Citizen Service Number (BSN) black in this copy. This is to protect your privacy. We will respond to your request as soon as possible, but within four weeks.

    It is also possible, if you feel that we are not complying with the GDPR, to submit a complaint to the national supervisory authority, the Dutch Data Protection Authority.
