The small print
At New Story we handle personal data responsibly. Not because we have to, but mainly because we think it's important. When processing personal data, we always adhere to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In this privacy statement you can read how we do this.
First and foremost, we only use the data we receive from you for the intended purpose. For example, you can count on us never to pass your data on to third parties without being asked. And you don't just receive our newsletters if you happen to have called with a question.
At New Story we only have corporate clients. In addition to general company data, we also keep contact details. This concerns data such as names, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers and functions.
As long as you are a New Story client, we need those contact details. Even if your agreement with New Story has ended, it is possible that this data will still be saved. Think of data that is linked to a contract, invoice or other official document for which a legal retention period applies.
If you email or call us, we need information from you to be able to answer your question or to contact you afterwards. Therefore we store your name, company name, e-mail address and/or telephone number. As soon as we have dealt with your question, we will immediately remove your data from our systems. If our contact leads to a (possible) assignment, then we will apply the policy described under 'Clients'.
We regularly send newsletters with a maximum of one per month. This newsletter contains information about our work, trends and developments in our field, blogs and news items. You will only receive this newsletter if you have registered yourself with your name and email address.
If you receive and open our newsletter, we also keep track of whether and what you and other readers click through. This helps us to keep the content of our newsletters relevant.
You can always unsubscribe from our newsletter; at the bottom of each newsletter you will find an unsubscribe option. You can also unsubscribe right here if you have subscribed to our newsletter and no longer wish to receive it.
When you visit our website for the first time, you will receive a cookie notification. You can immediately indicate your preferences. You can (usually) adjust these preferences via the settings of your browser, or in your cookie preferences on this page. It is good to realize that certain functions and pages on our website do not work in the usual way if you block our cookies.
We use Google Analytics to keep track of how many visitors come to our websites and how they behave on our website (for example, which pages they visit, through which entrance and how long they stay there). This is mainly done in a privacy-friendly way in which website visits are registered anonymously. Besides Google Analytics we use Hotjar for gaining more insights of how visitors behave on our website, for example with heatmaps and recording sessions.
In order to better reach our target group, we also use advertising options from Google Analytics. We use Google advertising cookies for this. We do this to enable certain functions in the Google Display Network for products such as AdWords – think of remarketing or retargeting. You can find out more about how Google uses advertising cookies here.
Have you applied for a job and are you not invited for an interview? Or have you been invited, but have we not been able to work it out together? Then we will keep your data for 12 weeks after the closing date of the vacancy. If we want to keep open the possibility to approach you for new similar vacancies in the future, we will keep your data for a maximum of one year. Only if you give us explicit permission for this.
Data retention periods
If we are sure that your data is no longer needed by us, we will delete it from our systems. For the sake of completeness, this are the most important retention periods:
- contact by mail or telephone: as soon as your question has been dealt with, we will delete your data.
- newsletter: we store your name and e-mail address until you unsubscribe from the newsletter.
- Google Analytics: data about website visits is kept as long as we have an agreement with Google Analytics.
- applications: we will keep your data for another 4 weeks after the closing date (and a maximum of one year if we agree on this together).
Of course, good security of our systems is very important. That is why we use the recommended security measures. If personal data is obtained despite our efforts, or we suspect that the risk has been great, we will inform all those involved as soon as possible.
