Privacy Policy


1. Introduction
We at Govin B.V. (“Govin”, “we”, “our” or “us”) are committed to respect your privacy. This policy describes in short our practices regarding the collection and processing of personal data when you interact with us as well as your privacy rights.

Our privacy policy may be amended unilaterally. We therefore recommend you to review the privacy policy from time to time. The last update was on 24 August 2023.

Govin may also act as a “data processor”. This is the case if customers engage us to process (personal) data via our governance platform. Note that this privacy statement does not apply to such processing as we do not control (the types of) (personal) data that our customers collect. We solely process such data under the instructions of our customers and the arrangements are laid down in among others a (separate) data processing agreement. 


2. What personal data do we process?

The personal data we collect depends on the relation that we have with you.

2.1 Information that you provide to us

We might collect personal data when you interact with us. For example, we collect personal data when you contact our customer support and/or sales team, sign up for our newsletter(s), register for product demonstrations and events, fill in forms (e.g. surveys and testimonials) or otherwise communicate with us. In this context we might collect the following personal data:

In this context, we might collect the following personal data:

Our use of personal data is based on one or more of the following processing grounds:

If personal data has been processed with your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time. Please note that the withdrawal of your consent does not affect the lawfulness of the processing of your personal data prior to the withdrawal nor the processing of personal data based on other lawful processing grounds.


4. To whom do we share your personal data?

In certain cases, we might share personal data with others if this is necessary for the purposes as mentioned in this privacy statement. Third parties to whom personal data is made available should handle your personal data with due care and keep it confidential. If third parties qualify as a so-called ‘data processor’, we will enter into a data processing agreement with these parties. We may share your personal data with the following categories of recipients:

We do not sell your personal data to others. We may however share anonymous or de-identified information with others if this is permitted by applicable law.

Please note that Govin may transfer your personal data to a recipient in a country outside the European Economic Area. We implement safeguards if personal data is transferred to a jurisdiction that does not have an adequate level of data protection (as determined by the European Commission), for example by adopting the so-called “Standard Contractual Clauses” (as approved by the European Commission).


5. How do we protect your personal data?

We take security seriously. We have therefore taken appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data. Please feel free to contact us if you have questions regarding the protection of your personal data or if there are indications of misuse.


6. How long do we retain personal data?

We do not retain your personal data in an identifiable form for longer than is necessary to achieve the purposes as mentioned in this Privacy Policy. This for example means that if you signed up for our newsletter, we will store your personal data until you unsubscribe from our mailing list.

We may be required to retain personal data for longer period of time under applicable laws and regulations. Also note that content that you might post on our websites (for example on publicly accessible blogs) may remain on our website(s), even if you stop using our services.
