Privacy policy

Protecting personal information is a fundamental right, formalized in laws including Article 8 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union. The General Data Protection Regulation (hereafter: GDPR) is a European law governing the protection of this fundamental right. The GDPR took effect on 24 May 2016 with full applicability in the entire European Union effective 25 May 2018.

The Code to Change is committed to handling personal information from data subjects with the utmost care; data subjects should expect no less from The Code to Change. Where such handling fails to meet expectations, The Code to Change asks data subjects to make this known. In addition, data subjects have the right at all times to submit a complaint to the supervisory authority. In the Netherlands, this is the Dutch Data Protection Authority. The Code to Change assures its members, contributors, and other data subjects of whom it handles personal information that such handling is done appropriately and transparently.

Personal Data

The Code to Change does not process any other data from those involved that is strictly necessary. For other purposes, The Code to Change will first ask the person concerned for permission. If The Code to Change collects data outside the data subject, then the data subject will be informed of this within a reasonable period of time after receipt of the data. In principle, the same information is provided as if the data were obtained from the data subject himself. When notifying, also stated the source from which the personal data was obtained. If the source of the information cannot be determined, general information about the origin is provided.

The data of the person concerned to be processed by The Code to Change are:

  • The email address
  • The name and address details
  • Age bracket
  • The telephone number
  • Other relevant personal data that the person concerned provides on his own initiative
  • Pictures
  • Videos

The Code to Change processes the data of the person concerned when they:

  • Sign up for our training
  • Register for our updates via the website (newsletter)
  • Take part in our trainings/bootcamps, meetups, and events


If the person concerned registers for the newsletter of The Code to Change, the requested contact details will be stored and used for the purpose of sending the newsletter. The data will be used until the person concerned unsubscribes from the newsletter. You can unsubscribe from this at any time.

Pictures and Videos

No photographs, images, or videos can be used for personal use without the permission of the person concerned and The Code to Change management staff. Pictures and videos with people in them are personal data just like any other form of personal data, and so it is The Code to Change’s responsibility to handle this per the principles of data protection.

The Code to Change only processes personal data if the person concerned has given permission for this.


The Code to Change takes appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect the personal data of those involved and protect it against loss or unauthorized processing. The Code To Change never shares confidential data with third parties without the consent of the person concerned.

Data Protection Officer

The Code to Change has taken steps to appoint a data protection officer (hereinafter: DPO). The DPO supervises internally and advises on applying and complying with the Regulation by The Code to Change. Moreover, the DPO is the point of contact for the data subject. As the controller, The Code to Change is ultimately responsible for compliance with the Regulation.
