De AOb and your privacy

When you are a member of the AOb we receive personal data from you. When filling in the membership form, when you call, email or write us a letter, sometimes even if you are someone from the AOb speaks at school. Because we know that union membership can be sensitive information - and it is by law - we handle it with care.

Our promise

  • We handle your data with care and we comply with the law
  • You decide who can know that you are a member of the AOb. We respect your choices
  • We do not sell your data to others
  • You can easily request and adjust your data

Below you can read what the AOb and why.

What data is it?

When you are a member, we register your name, contact details, where you work or have worked and your bank number. In addition, we keep your e-mail or correspondence for as long as necessary. Where applicable, we register that you are a volunteer or executive and what role you fulfill. We record which groups or departments you are a member of. The registration also states which aids (for example a laptop) you need from the AOb receives and what compensation (expenses, strike benefit). When participating in campaigns or strikes, we only register this if you indicate this yourself. If certain data is no longer relevant, we will anonymize or delete it.

When you use our legal services, the AOb often need additional information to help you. Depending on the demand, this may involve extra sensitive information such as salary data or health data.

When you visit our websites: we process information about your use of the website using cookies.

De AOb asks for your permission to process data, for example with cookies. You can give permission by means of the cookie notification. You can revoke your consent at any time, but this has no retroactive effect. Change cookie settings.

Your data is safe

We collect and store all this information in order to properly represent your interests as a member or to keep you informed of relevant developments in education. But that can also be to contact you and to give you the opportunity to participate in activities of the association.

In those cases that the AOb collaborates with other organizations - such as when sending the Education Magazine - and this requires an exchange of data, we do so on the basis of clear contracts and confidentiality.

Within the organization of the AOb we ensure that only those people can access your data, for whom this makes sense because of their work.
