We will take appropriate technical and organisational measures to secure your personal data against loss or unlawful processing.

You can exercise various rights in relation to your personal data. Under the AVG, you have the following rights.

Right of inspection

You have the right to access your personal data. This means that you have the right to find out whether any of your personal data are being processed and, if so, what personal data they are, including additional information.

Right of rectification

We take reasonable steps to ensure that the information we hold about you is accurate and complete. However, if you believe that it is not, you can ask us to update or change your personal data.

Right to data erasure

You have the right to ask us to delete your personal data, for example if your personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes of processing, if you withdraw your consent or if the personal data have been processed unlawfully.

Right to restriction of processing

You have the right to ask us to stop processing your personal data (temporarily), for example if you believe that the personal data we process about you is incorrect.

Right of objection

You have the right to object to the processing of personal data, especially if the processing is based on our legitimate interests. We will then stop processing personal data. In some cases, we may invoke legitimate grounds for processing that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms.

If you wish to exercise any of the above rights, please contact us using the contact details listed under point 11. We kindly ask you to clearly state who you are and what kind of relationship you have with us, so that we can best help you.


To best serve your interests and those of the Foundation, we may use the services of third parties. This may involve these service providers receiving your personal data. Most of these service providers qualify as 'processors' and may only process your data under our instructions. We conclude processor agreements with these parties, which include the obligation for these parties to take appropriate organisational and technical measures to protect your personal data. We work with DACCS, a processor that provides us with marketing services. DACCS in turn cooperates with parties to perform its services, such as Google for optimising the Website. Google qualifies as a processor in the context of its services and as a data controller for specific processing operations. In addition, Meta is used to show you relevant ads. Meta qualifies as a (joint) controller for these services.

We also use performance-based marketing. Performance-based marketing is a fair form of advertising because the advertiser is remunerated only for actual and measurable results. To make use of this service, we submit anonymous transaction data to an affiliate network. This data includes; product descriptions, sales value, and demographic and geographical characteristics. These cannot be traced back to an individual and are only used and shared for statistical purposes. In addition to anonymous transaction data, we also provide pseudonymised transaction IDs. These transaction IDs are not further shared with other third parties and only used for validation purposes. The technical process also transmits your IP address. This address is only stored anonymised in the affiliate network's system. In addition, we may share your personal data with other parties if this is necessary for the purposes described in this privacy statement in the context of the preparation, execution or settlement of legal proceedings. For example, if necessary, we may share personal data with lawyers, counterparties, litigation financiers, courts, bailiffs, experts, similar parties and parties filing similar claims in other countries. We will anonymise or pseudonymise personal data to the extent possible. Finally, we may need to share personal data with third parties to comply with a legal obligation.


We, or third parties engaged by us, will only store, process or transfer your personal data in countries outside the European Economic Area ("EEA") if applicable laws and regulations governing the national or international transfer of personal data to countries outside the EEA, such as the United States, are met. For example, if the European Commission has decided that the third country ensures an adequate level of protection or that the protection of your personal data is otherwise ensured, for example through the use of model contract provisions or Binding corporate rules.


The Foundation uses pixels, cookies and similar techniques. The Foundation uses Meta Pixel. This pixel collects information about your browsing behaviour (event data) so that we can show you relevant ads through Meta. In addition, the Foundation uses Google Tag Manager, Google Analytics, Google Enhanced Conversions, Google Ad Manager, Google Ads Customer Match and Google Optimize to gain insight into visitors' browsing behaviour for the proper functioning of our Website, improve the accuracy of your conversion measurements, enhance ease of use, gain insight, target participants and similar individuals with ads and perform referral experiments. To apply performance-based marketing, our affiliate network partner stores data and so-called affiliate cookies and matching processes are used. The use of affiliate cookies, matching data and data storage poses no threat to the privacy of visitors to this website. 

Cookies are small text files that a website provider places on a visitor's equipment. Cookies can be used to make a website function properly, but can also provide information about you or your website visit. However, this does not mean that parties can access your equipment through cookies. 

For example, the Foundation uses tracking cookies from Microsoft, Meta and analytical cookies from Google. In addition, we use Meta Conversion API. This establishes a connection between our server and Meta (server-side tracking) so that web server events can be shared. You can see this as an alternative to tracking cookies.

For more information on the above, see here Meta's privacy statement, here Microsoft's privacy statement and here Google's privacy statement.

The Website uses four types of cookies:

  1. Functional cookies: these cookies enable the Website to function properly and improve the ease of use for you.
  2. Preferences: these cookies enable the Website to remember, for example, which language you have set.
  3. Analytical cookies: these cookies generate insight into the use of the Website, for example the number of website visitors, clicks and page views, so that we can optimise the Website.
  4. Tracking cookies: these cookies track your browsing behaviour so that we can show you relevant ads with the help of third-party advertisers.


If you have any further questions, wish to exercise any of the above rights or lodge a complaint with us about the processing of your personal data, please contact us at info@emissionclaim.nl. We will, of course, be happy to help you.

Finally, we think it is important to mention that you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority about the processing of your personal data. In the Netherlands, you can contact the Personal Data Authority at https://autoriteitpersoonsgegevens.nl/nl/zelf-doen/privacyrechten/klacht-indienen-bij-de-ap.
