Privacy Statement

1. Types of personal data 

To provide its services, Novel-T only collects and processes standard personal data, such as a data subject’s name and address information, date of birth and contact details (email address, telephone number, etcetera).

2. Rights of data subjects 

Data subjects have the following rights pertaining to personal data of theirs that is collected/processed by Novel-T:

  • Rectification: If you believe that your data, which Novel-T has collected and/or recorded, is incorrect and/or incomplete, you can submit a request to have this personal data rectified and/or completed.

  • Access: You have the right to request a complete overview of the personal data that Novel-T has recorded on you.

  • Erasure: In certain cases, you have the right to be forgotten. This means that you may request Novel-T to delete all data that concerns you.

  • Withdraw consent: At some point, you gave Novel-T (explicit) consent to process your personal data, but you now wish to withdraw that consent.

  • Object (Article 21 GDPR): You object to the processing of your personal data on the grounds of Article 21 of the GDPR. Under certain conditions, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data. This is only possible if Novel-T processes your data based on a general or common interest, not if this is done to meet a legal obligation.

  • Restriction: The processing of your personal data is temporarily ceased. You can e.g. exercise this right if you are not certain about the correctness or completeness of the data Novel-T has on you. When you submit a “request to restriction of processing,” your personal data is not deleted, since it must remain possible to undo the requested restriction

  • Data portability: You have the right to “transfer” your personal data. When you exercise this right, you will receive a copy of your personal data as it was processed by Novel-T.

3. Special and/or confidential personal data 

Our website and/or service has no intention to collect data on website visitors who are under the age of 16 and/or to collect special categories of personal data, unless these data subjects have permission from a parent or guardian. However, we cannot verify whether a visitor is over the age of 16. We therefore advise parents to monitor their child(ren)’s online activities in order to prevent the collection and processing of personal data without their consent. If you are convinced that we have collected personal data on a minor without parental consent, you can contact us via and we will delete this data.

  • To deliver goods and services to you.

5. Automated decision-making 

Novel-T does not use automated data processing to make decisions about matters that may have (serious) consequences for the persons in question.

6. Data retention period 

Novel-T does not store your personal data any longer than strictly necessary in order to realise the purposes for which your data is collected. The personal data we collect is stored for a period of 14 months after our last contact. We do this to keep data subjects up to date on developments pertaining to our services.

7. Sharing personal data with third parties
