We owe our success to our culture, our reputation and the trust placed in us by our clients.

What do we use your data for?
If you send us an e-mail, we will use your personal data for the purpose of responding to your questions or comments. If you sign up to receive mailings we will use your personal data to send you the newsletter(s). In the context of our commercial relationship with you, we may also send you newsletters or invitations on our own initiative. In addition, we may process personal data for the purpose of complying with statutory requirements. Lastly, if you make use of the facility to apply for a job or send your CV, your personal data will be processed in this regard also.
Personal data will be stored inside the EU as much as possible. If personal data will be sent outside the EU, EM Group will arrange for contractual safeguards. This might be the case in for example international legal proceedings or providing cross-jurisdictional services. EM Group will always inform you should this be the case. Please be informed that some of our offices are located outside the EU. In case you engage these offices, please note that you are sending personal data outside the EU.

EM Group uses Google Analytics to gain insight into visitor flows, traffic sources and page views on our website. Information collected with Google Analytics has been anonymized as much as possible. For example, EM Group can not see which individual visitors enter our website. Google will never process your entire IP address, but always mask the last octet of your IP address.
Google does not use the collected data for its own purposes. EM Group did not give Google permission for this. EM Group does not use other Google services in combination with the Google Analytics cookies.

Google may only provide your information to third parties if Google is legally obliged to do so, or if third parties process the information on behalf of Google. For more information, read Google’s Privacy Policy.

How long do we store your personal data?
We will store your personal data as listed above until the moment you have informed us that you no longer wish to receive our mailings, we cease the sending of the relevant mailings, or it appears that your email address is no longer in use (for example when we receive a failed delivery notification). In case of storing personal data due to provision of services, we will store this data in accordance with legal requirements and statutory periods.
