At The Class Foundation we take user rights and data privacy and protection very seriously. We recognise our obligations in updating and expanding this program to meet the demands of the GDPR and the Dutch Data Protection Act.
What user data do we collect?
Depending on what you do on our website, we gather different information about our visitors.
Information you provide
For our events and contact forms we may ask to receive the following information
- First name
- Last name
- Job title
- User content (i.e. photos, bios)
Log file information
We collect information that your browser sends whenever you visit our website. This log file information may include your computer’s Internet Protocol (IP) address, browser type, browser version, the pages of our website that you visit, the time and date of your visit, the time spent on those pages and other statistics.
Metadata is usually technical data that is associated with User Content. For instance, metadata can describe how, when and by whom a piece of User Content was collected and how that content is formatted. Users can add or may have metadata added to their User Content including a hashtag (e.g. to mark keywords when you post a photo), geotag (e.g. to mark your location to a photo), comments or other data. This makes your User Content more searchable by others and more interactive.
(non-personally identifiable information only)
Why do we collect user data?
We use all of the information we have to help us provide and support our website by:
- Remembering information so you will not have to re-enter it during your visit or the next time you visit;
- Providing, improving, testing, and monitoring the effectiveness of our website;
- Monitoring metrics such as total number of visitors, traffic, and demographic patterns;
- Organising and keeping track of supplied data in a CRM tool provided by Salesforce;
- Diagnosing or fixing technology issues;
- Developing and testing new products and features.
How is the user data shared?
We will not rent or sell your information to third parties outside The Class Foundation.
People you share and communicate with
Any information or content that you voluntarily disclose for posting to the website, such as User Content, becomes available to the public. Once you have shared User Content or made it public, that User Content may be re-shared by others. Subject to your profile, any User Content that you make public is searchable by other Users. If you remove information that you posted to the Service, copies may remain viewable in cached and archived pages of the Service, or if other Users or third parties have copied or saved that information.
Change of control
Legal requests and preventing harm
We may access, preserve, and share your information in response to a legal request (like a search warrant, court order or subpoena) if we have a good-faith belief that the law requires us to do so. We may also access, preserve, and share information when we have a good faith belief it is necessary to: detect, prevent, and address fraud and other illegal activity; to protect ourselves, you and others, including as part of investigations; and to prevent death or imminent bodily harm. Information we receive about you may be accessed, processed and retained for an extended period of time when it is the subject of a legal request or obligation, governmental investigation, or investigations concerning possible violations of our terms or policies, or otherwise to prevent harm.

The Class Foundation has taken appropriate technical and organisational measures by using the latest technologies to protect your information against loss or unlawful processing. We use safeguards to help keep the information collected through the website secure, thanks to Webflow and AWS technologies, including:
- SSL Certificate;
- Two-factor authentication;
- DDoS protection: AWS Shield;
- Filter malicious web traffic: AWS Web Application Firewall;
- Data protection: Amazon Macie;
- Investigate security issues: Amazon Detective;
- Secure access to services and resources: AWS Identity & Access Management (IAM);
- Cloud SSO service: AWS Single Sign-On;
- Threat detection service: Amazon GuardDuty.
However, The Class Foundation cannot ensure the security of any information you transmit to our foundation or guarantee that information on the website may not be accessed, disclosed, altered, or destroyed. We request you to do your part to help us. You are responsible for controlling access to emails between you and our foundation, at all times. We are not responsible for the functionality, privacy, or security measures of any other organisation.
In accordance with the law, The Class Foundation does not retain data any longer than is required for attaining the purposes for which they were collected.
