Use of your personal data

Your personal data will not be used for purposes other than providing information about HOVON trials.

If you send us a Curriculum Vitae (CV) for trial purposes we will keep it in accordance with applicable laws and regulations (a CV or other statement of qualifications is necessary to show the education, training, and experience that qualifies an investigator/independent physician as an expert in the clinical investigation of the drug for the use under investigation). If you send us a CV to apply for a vacancy, we will use the information you have provided to us to determine whether there are suitable grounds for inviting you to an interview. HOVON will only use the personal data necessary to be able to meet the demand / legal requirements.

HOVON does not collect special personal data from the contact persons with whom we work together.
