PNA takes appropriate technical and organisational measures to secure the personal data entrusted to us, in line with the applicable legal requirements and guidelines. These measures are designed to prevent abuse, loss, unauthorised access, unwanted disclosure and unauthorised changes to your personal data.

Where can I go with a communication, request, question or complaint?
Within PNA, your personal data can only be used by employees who, in view of their position, should have access to them. Our employees have a duty of confidentiality and have been informed about the importance of protecting personal data. Your personal data can be exchanged between the divisions of PNA. But only when this is compatible with the purpose for which the data have been collected. For example, data that establish your identity can also be used by another part of PNA with which you wish to do business.
We will never provide your personal data to third parties, unless this is legally required or permitted, for example in the context of payment transactions or for the prevention of crime. We may provide the data you supply to us to trusted third parties if this is necessary for the implementation of the purposes described in point 3. What does PNA process personal data for? A third party can only receive our assignment if they guarantee confidentiality with regard to personal data and demonstrably have taken appropriate technical and organisational security measures which are in line with our own.
Data retention period
Your personal data will be stored carefully and no longer than is necessary for the purpose for which it was processed or is required by law. The retention period therefore depends on the situation. If your personal details are no longer necessary, they will be anonymised or removed. If you would like to know more about the retention period of your personal data by PNA in a specific situation, please contact us as described below in point 7.

The PNA web servers log session information, including: pages visited, duration of the visit, type of equipment and software (device, browser, operating system), search terms and the IP address (the traceability of which can be limited by anonymising the last few digits of each IP address). This logging is for internal processing only and is regularly analysed for points of improvement and further on technical aspects with the aim to remain up-to-date with regard to the browsers and techniques to be supported, and possibly analysed in case of technical problems. In addition, this logging is part of the security measures for the detection and prevention of unwanted activities.
PNA websites and documents may contain links (references) to (parts of) external websites.

Where can I go with a communication, request, question or complaint?
If we become aware that a minor child has shared personal data with us via a PNA website or otherwise, without the written consent of a parent, guardian or legal representative, we will delete such personal data.
