What do we do with these digital personal details?

Rutgers sets great store by handling your personal details carefully and confidentially.

Submission forms

Personal details that you share with us via an application form or other submission form are used to carry out our services properly. We do not share this information with third parties. These details are stored in the CMS system of our websites and sometimes via the secured servers of Rutgers.

Data regarding the newsletter

When you have signed up for a newsletter from Rutgers, your details will be stored in Mailchimp, our system for sending newsletters. We do not share this information with third parties and do not use it for other purposes. We retain the data In Mailchimp if you give permission for this. Under each newsletter you have the option to unsubscribe, after which we delete your data from Mailchimp.

Mailchimp uses cookies. We use this information for analysing the newsletters. Data that we analyse are, for example, how often the newsletter was opened or on which article was clicked the most. More information can be found in the Mailchimp Privacy Statement.

They only remember your preferences and your interests based on surfing behaviour.

We collect data to measure and analyse visitor information from the website. We use this information to assess the effectiveness of our website and, where necessary, to adjust the site. This information is never used to personally identify visitors (neither is this possible). We use Google Analytics for this.

Rutgers is very careful with images on our websites. We always ask permission for this, usually via a permission form of visual material that we make or develop ourselves, or by buying photos with the correct rights.

Social media on our websites

At the bottom of our websites you will find buttons to share information via Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. These buttons contain codes of social media itself. They remember whether you have already logged in on this social media account. The way they deal with this is beyond the responsibility of Rutgers. You can read in the privacy statements of FacebookYouTube and Twitter how they deal with this.

Embedded content

Embedded content is content that we retrieve from another website and put on our own website, such as a video from YouTube. Embedding content on our website is only done with the permission of the person responsible for this content.
