Third parties

When providing its services, Jaarbeurs may pass on your personal data to third parties, such as the IT suppliers of our systems or our website manager. Jaarbeurs furthermore uses various advisors who may gain access to your personal data, such as management consultants and lawyers.


The nature of our online media services furthermore requires us to pass on personal data to third parties. That may be the case for instance, if you download content (white papers) of third parties on one of our online portals or if you apply for product information. The third party in question (the provider of the white paper or the supplier of a product) may then contact you. That is done only with your consent. The provider in question is exclusively responsible for the ultimate processing of your personal data. You may contact that provider for further information on how it handles your personal data.


We may also be required by law to pass on your personal data to third parties. An accountant may gain access to your personal data when performing an audit. The police and the municipality may obtain information from us, for instance regarding fraud, security or an investigation.
