Privacy and security policy regarding the processing of data and information in general and of personal data in particular
Privacy statement ClaimsAgent
ClaimsAgent considers the privacy of all parties involved in the settlement of insolvency proceedings to be of paramount importance. ClaimsAgent complies with applicable laws and regulations with regard to privacy and the processing of personal data. ClaimsAgent has taken various organizational and technical measures to protect the (personal) data and information it has collected, processed and stored. Below you can read what the processing of the (personal) data entered by you and other information entails.
Processing of (personal) data and information
ClaimsAgent collects, processes and stores only (personal) data and information:
(1) about the (resolution of) insolvency proceedings (i.e. bankruptcies and moratoriums), including proceedings with regard to natural persons who conduct business; and
(2) of creditors, i.e. both natural and legal persons, established both inside and outside the European Union (hereinafter referred to as creditors) who file claims and related ancillary rights (hereinafter collectively referred to as: claims) in insolvency proceedings; and
(3) of those professionally charged with the resolution of insolvency proceedings (i.e. trustees, administrators, supervisory judges and their respective assistants).
(the parties sub (2) and (3) hereinafter collectively referred to as users)
ClaimsAgent processes the aforementioned (personal) data and information in a manner that (1) complies with the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016), the implementing law for the GDPR in the Netherlands and other relevant regulations; and (2) generates optimal benefit for itself and for other stakeholders, including creditors and trustees.
ClaimsAgent collects and processes the (personal) data and information of creditors and their claims by means of its own software application, which is available via the Internet websites ClaimsAgent.nl and Trustee.ClaimsAgent.nl, a data link (API) with the judiciary and by means of the e-mail services of third parties.
Purpose of data processing
ClaimsAgent collects, processes and stores (personal) data and information with the aim of:
(1) assisting creditors in insolvency proceedings as intermediary with the online submission of their claims to the trustees; and
(2) informing the creditors about the progress of the insolvency proceedings relevant to them; and
(3) assisting the trustees as intermediary with the resolution of insolvency proceedings in which they have been appointed and in which they, as independent processors in the performance of their statutory task in the public interest, process (personal) data and information of creditors; and
(4) developing additional (future) services within the boundaries of the applicable laws and regulations.
ClaimsAgent only collects, processes and stores data and information that are relevant to and limited to the aforementioned objectives. In doing so, ClaimsAgent takes into account the stage of resolution of the respective insolvency proceedings and does not itself request the provision of more data and information than is necessary at a certain stage. ClaimsAgent also facilitates that the trustees, in the context of their statutory performance of duties, request further data and information (including personal data) from creditors.
ClaimsAgent will only have all personal data automatically deleted from its databases after six months after the final resolution of the insolvency proceedings. A fixed term or a fixed time cannot be determined in advance, because the duration of the resolution of insolvency proceedings differs from case to case and ClaimsAgent has no control over this.
Please note: if you have submitted a claim as a private individual / consumer or as a sole trader, your personal data will also be automatically deleted. The trustee in the insolvency proceedings may have stored your data in their own administration and may keep such data longer than ClaimsAgent. He then does so as an independent data controller on the basis of his own statutory task in the public interest.
Creditors who enter their (personal) data and information when creating an account must activate their account. If creditors do not activate their account, ClaimsAgent will automatically delete all such (personal) data and information after 14 days after creating the account.
Correctness of data processing
ClaimsAgent cannot guarantee the correctness of the processed (personal) data and information of the creditors who use its software service as a result of the nature of the software service: this essentially concerns the statutory assessment and judicial determination of in principle undetermined monetary claims and related (personal) data and information in insolvency proceedings by trustees appointed for that purpose by the government. With regard to that (personal) data and information, ClaimsAgent is only an intermediary (agent), is totally passive in this respect and does not enter, delete or make any changes to (personal) data or information about claims.
The creditors themselves provide their (personal) data and information about their claims via the aforementioned Internet websites at their own responsibility and at their own risk. Where appropriate, third parties appointed by the creditors provide these (personal) data and information on their behalf or the trustees or administrators involved enter this (personal) data and information via the aforementioned websites.
Consulting, alteration and removing (personal) data and information
The creditors always have access - via their accounts - to their (personal) data and information and can consult, alter or delete them at any time. This also includes the (personal) data and information regarding their submitted claims. If and insofar as the trustees have entered creditors (personal) data and information, they have done so on the basis of their statutory duties. In such case, creditors who have not entered their (personal) data online must request alteration or deletion thereof from the relevant bankruptcy trustee.
Creditors have access through their account to the current (personal) data and information that are collected, processed and stored. The application ensures that these (personal) data and information are either provided automatically to the creditors via e-mail or via their account and can be further processed by the creditors (i.e. via download or copy).
Disclosure of (personal) data
ClaimsAgent emphasizes that the rules and regulations that apply to the resolution of insolvency proceedings entail that ultimately all (personal) data and information of parties involved in insolvency proceedings (e.g. users) are to be made public and be available to everyone.
ClaimsAgent does not itself take any action as a result of which details of creditors, including personal data, are made public via the aforementioned websites or otherwise. Professionals involved in the resolution of insolvency proceedings may use the services to disclose data and information from and about creditors through the above websites. ClaimsAgent has set up the services in such a way that personal data is displayed or protected anonymously. This is in accordance with the guidelines of the judiciary.
Lawfulness of the data processing,
The processing of (personal) data and information by ClaimsAgent is lawful on the grounds that the creditors have given their permission for the above specifically described purposes and compatible purposes, on the grounds that the trustees in the context of the performance of their statutory task utilize the services of ClaimsAgent, or on the grounds that the processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by ClaimsAgent or by third parties.
The trustees further process the (personal) data and information associated with the claims of creditors that they obtain via ClaimsAgent, such as, for example, by assessing the correctness and completeness of those (personal) data and information, by making changes therein at their own discretion and having the same legally determined in court. The trustees carry out this further processing of (personal) data and information on the basis of their statutory obligations as independent processors and, to that extent, not pursuant to a (processor) agreement with ClaimsAgent nor as a joint responsible party together with ClaimsAgent.
The trustees and administrators carry out this independent processing of (personal) data and information both in the software application on the computer systems of ClaimsAgent and on their own computer systems. ClaimsAgent has no control over the latter computer systems.
Security and integrity of the processing of (personal) data and information
ClaimsAgent has taken technical and organizational measures to safeguard the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the collected, stored and processed (personal) data and information. The software application of ClaimsAgent and its database are hosted for this purpose in a certified data center in the Netherlands, or at least within the European Union. The services of the hosting provider include security services, about which ClaimsAgent does not make any further statements for security reasons.
ClaimsAgent has secured the data traffic with the websites, software applications and computer systems from which users provide and extract (personal) data by means of encryption, i.e. the data traffic between the website and the user (by means of a so-called TSL certificate) is electronically encrypted and protected against inspection by third parties. However, absolute security of data transmission over the Internet cannot be guaranteed. This also applies to the collection, processing and storage of (personal) data by means of computer systems accessible via the Internet. ClaimsAgent therefore does not guarantee the absolute security of the software application or computer systems it uses.
In the event of a breach of the security of (personal) data or information, ClaimsAgent will inform the Dutch Data Protection Authority and the users by e-mail.
ClaimsAgent will only provide (personal) data and information for control and further processing to third parties, that are either acting on the basis of their statutory obligations or have contractually undertaken to process the data and information in accordance with the applicable privacy regulations and have demonstrated compliance to ClaimsAgent.
The parent company of ClaimsAgent, that is CrediVera B.V., has notified the processing of personal data to the Dutch Data Protection Authority in The Hague. All parties who, other than as trustee or their auxiliary persons by virtue of their respective legal obligations, can take cognizance of the (personal) data or information processed or stored by ClaimsAgent, have signed a confidentiality statement.
Complaints about the processing of personal data
ClaimsAgent requests anyone who believes that ClaimsAgent is acting in breach of the applicable laws and regulations with regard to the protection of personal data in the performance of its work, or that it has any other questions or comments, to report this. Inform ClaimsAgent via the address firstname.lastname@example.org. ClaimsAgent will respond to this within a reasonable period and in principle within one month. It is also possible to file a complaint about the conduct of ClaimsAgent with the Dutch Data Protection Authority in The Hague. You can find the relevant contact details here.
