Why is this data required?
The Ministry of General Affairs processes the personal data you provide to us when submitting a question in order to answer your questions and contact you.
How does your data get processed?
We only process personal data that we need to answer your questions and contact you. That is our official duty. This means that such processing is needed in order for us to comply with our statutory obligation (http://wetten.overheid.nl/BWBR0019219). The Ministry of General Affairs does not sell your data to third parties. We may forward your question to one of the Ministries for a reply. We will conclude a data processor agreement with companies we have commissioned to process your data, in order to ensure the same level of security and confidentiality regarding your data. The Ministry of General Affairs will remain responsible for all such processing. The National Government Information Desk operates in accordance with the email code of conduct (https://www.overheid.nl/contact/e-mailgedragslijn-voor-overheden) for government bodies. This sets out how the gov-ernment deals with the processing and storage of emails. The National Government may use data for investigation purposes, for example, if someone commits offences or makes punishable statements.
How long do we keep your data?
The Ministry of General Affairs will retain your personal data for two years. This timeframe has been set down by virtue of the Dutch Public Records Act [Archiefwet].
