About your personal data

Collaboration with municipalities
The Baby & Child Research Center collaborates with several municipalities in the province of Gelderland. From them, we receive the addresses of all parents who recently had a baby. The municipalities may provide us with this information for the purpose of scientific research.

Information letter
We use the addresses only for sending you a one-time information letter about our research center. We only use your data for our research purposes and we do not provide your data to anyone else. If you do not sign up for our research, your personal data will be destroyed.

Protection of personal data
The data will be saved in a password protected database. The password is only for a select group of researchers and is changed regularly. Data in the database will only be used to get in touch to make an appointment. We will never provide your data to third parties.

For more information, read our privacy policy.

Your child's anonymity is guaranteed under all circumstances.

The research data collected from your child is analysed as part of the group of children tested and then used in scientific publications. No information is published that would identify your child (e.g. name).

The data collected is given a code and stored and only staff working on the study know which code is linked to your child. The research data can only be accessed by external researchers without personal information or other information that could make it possible to identify your child. For more information on this subject, please see our privacy statement.
