Privacy & Cookies

Privacy Policy

At FJ, your privacy is important to us. That is why we want to inform you about our updated privacy statement.

We share what data we collect from you, how we do that and why we collect it. Our privacy statement is drawn up to align with the European Union’s GDPR law and applies to fjproducties.nl and any of its subdomains.

What kind of data do we collect from you and why?

We collect as little of your personal data as possible. The only times we collect data is when you subscribe to our newsletter, apply for a job at FJ or share your data with us voluntarily.

Subscribing to the newsletter

At the bottom of most pages of our website, you can sign up for our newsletter. To subscribe, we ask you for your name, email address and function title which will subsequently be added to our Mailchimp mailing list. Mailchimp is a specialised digital service that helps us create and send emails to a large number of people at once. If you want to unsubscribe from our newsletter, you can do so by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the bottom of any newsletter. We’d hate to see you go, though.

Applying to a job

When you apply for a job at FJ, the application process goes through Homerun. Homerun is a specialised digital service for presenting vacancies, managing applications and streamlining the application process. The application form you’ll have to fill in asks you for your name, email address, date of birth, city of residence, phone number, educational background, past work experiences and resume. This information is required to complete your application. On top of that, you are given the choice to share your address, country of residence, social media links and a picture of yourself. However, this is not obligatory, and it is up to you if you want to add it.

When you apply, thus sending us your information, you are asked to give us and Homerun permission to retain the information up to twelve (12) months after your application. After that period the data will be deleted unless we have received your permission to keep your data for a longer period of time. The latter only occurs after we explicitly asked you for this permission, for example when we currently don’t have an open vacancy, but we are impressed by your skills and personality.

Sharing your data voluntarily

Sometimes situations occur in which you share personal information with us via email or any other channel, this information will then be stored in our database. If you wish for us to delete this data, please get in touch with us through privacy@fjproducties.nl.

Processing data for our clients

The personal data we process on behalf of our clients, falls outside the scope of our privacy statement, as what we process and how we do so differs per project. Information on the personal data that we process there can be found in the privacy statement of that specific project. At FJ, it is our aim to only collect necessary data, and we also advise our clients to do so. Should you have any questions or requests regarding the collection of your personal data, please get in touch with us through privacy@fjproducties.nl.

How do we protect personal data?

To protect your personal data from getting lost, destroyed, used, edited and spread by unauthorised personnel, we keep our servers up-to-date and only send personal details through secured (SSL/TLS) connections. Also, we have signed data processing agreements with all the suppliers of service we mention here. If you would like to look into your personal data, change or delete it, please contact us at privacy@fjproducties.nl.

These technologies record each subscribers email address, IP address, date, and time associated with each open and click for a campaign. We use this data to create reports for our users about how an email campaign performed and what actions subscribers took.”
