Privacy statement

The initiators of the T-TRIPP project think that your privacy is important. This privacy statement explains which personal data are collected, how these data are processed and for what purpose.

One of the partners of the T-TRIPP project is the Rathenau Instituut. This means that the general privacy statement of the Rathenau Instituut is applicable. Read it here. This privacy statement gives additional information.

For what purposes do we keep a record of your data?
The initiators of the T-TRIPP project process personal data to fulfill its tasks:

Tools for Translation of Risk research into Policies & Practices. How can we make sure that the (regulatory) risk research in the STW program results in knowledge and tools that can be applied both in policies and applied research practices? And the other way around, how can we translate regulatory requirements into technical implementations for environmental safety? In other words, how can translation happen between science and policy in order to reach the goal of biosafety? Moving from a traditional linear approach of risk assessment, management and communication to a dynamic one, with iterations can allow for this translation. These processes need to be organized. We seek to answer these questions by creating processes for mutual learning, through the concept of a societal incubator. In addition, translation of risk research will be facilitated by tools that we will develop: a protocol for design heuristics for safety in biotechnology, and a serious game for biosafety and biosecurity.

Which personal data is recorded by initiators of the T-TRIPP project?
We will only process (in line with the Rathenau Instituut’s privacy statement) personal data if this is necessary for a specific purpose. The purpose determines which personal data have to be processed and no more data will be asked for than is essential for that purpose. Depending on the purpose, the following personal data may be processed: name, address, town/city, e-mail address, company data, gender, date of birth, account number, and curriculum vitae. Additionally your anonymized activities on our website may be processed.
