The goal of processing personal data

We process personal data only to fulfill our activities needed to provide our service. The following are the main objectives for which we process personal data. Behind every goal is the legal processing basis that applies from the AVG.

  • To implement the agreement of placement (necessary for the execution of an agreement)
  • To contact you by phone, e-mail or to message you via the parent portal if needed to provide our services (necessary for the execution of an agreement)
  • To inform you on changes in our services and products (legitimate interest)
  • To ensure that you receive relevant information on the (future) care location of your child(ren)  (necessary for the execution of an agreement)
  • To ensure that the administrative processing of your child is adequately organised (necessary for the execution of an agreement)
  • To manage your registration and/or payment  (necessary for the execution of an agreement)
  • To send a newsletter (legitimate interest and/or permission)
  • We analyze your behavior on the website in order to improve the website and to adjust the range of products and services to your preferences (legitimate interest)
  • We use visual material for both internal and external purposes. Think of training purposes (legitimate interest) but also promotional material or our website (permission). If we want to use images of your child for which there is no legitimate interest (for example in the case of promotion), we will only do this with your permission (permission).
  • We also process personal data if we are legally obliged to do so, such as data that we need for the Tax Authorities (necessary for a legal duty)

We will ask the explicit consent from parents, our (future) customer, for:

  • Processing specific and special personal data of their child(ren)
  • The use of visual material of their child (ren) for specific forms of internal or external communication.
  • Storing and analysing personal data to retrieve more insight into relevant market information, which we can use to improve our service offering. 

We thereby provide an explanation of the purpose and use of these personal data. Parents are also informed of the possibility of withdrawing the consent for the processing at any time.

Sharing of personal data with third parties

We offer a trusted and safe environment for your child and we find it important that the development is stimulated. We regularly discuss this. We share the personal data with various third parties if this is required to perform our activities and to comply with legislation. Examples of third parties are the Tax Authorities, GGD, Child Welfare Office, municipality, schools, etc.

Personal data will be shared with third parties without consent if:

  • there is a legal basis to do so (for example in the context of Child Care Tax Refunds or to be accountable to the municipality for the subsidy received for early childhood education (VVE));
  • it is logical, seen the purpose for which the data is collected and the involved can reasonably assume that the collected data is shared;
  • there is pressing reason and concern, for as long the personal atmosphere of the concerned is not unreasonably damaged.

We will also share in other situations your personal data to third parties; however, we will only share with your explicit consent.


Our suppliers also value your privacy. We have processing agreements with companies who process your data on our behalf to ensure a similar level of security and confidentiality of your data. Examples are our child plan package (including the parent portal, childcare app and group app), the web developer, a photographer that takes photos on the location and suppliers of our child planning system.

Google Analytics

We also have a processing agreement with Google for the use of Google Analytics which is used to analyse your behavior on the website with the purpose to improve and customise our website and our service offering to your preferences.

We do not use the analytics-cookies in combination with other Google services. If you do not wish that analytical data is collected, please use Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on.

The storage period of data

We do not store personal data longer than strictly required. The storage period is dependent on the purpose for which the data is collected and of the legislative storage requirements. For administrative (personal) data, for example, a retention period of seven years generally applies. If you have any questions on these topics please contact us via
