ICC Consultants BV
FAO The Management Board
ICC Consultants B.V., a company registered in the Netherlands under number NL006669992B01 with a registered office in Utrecht, the Netherlands, is responsible for the processing of your personal data. We advise our clients on financing issues as well as on the management of interest and currency risks in the broadest sense. This privacy statement applies to all our processing operations – even if we process personal data together with other parties in order to be able to inform you about our products and services. We do not process special or sensitive personal data.
PURPOSE OF DATA COLLECTION
We process personal data based on the following principles and objectives.
- Consent of the person concerned (marketing)
- Where data processing is necessary for the execution of an agreement (clients and suppliers)
Based on the first principle, we carry out marketing activities (including, but not limited to, direct marketing, telemarketing, social media marketing, et cetera.) to achieve our business objectives. We do this in order to be able to inform the right person, at the right time, using the right information. Our CRM system contains clients and prospects, who may be of interest with regard to our services, along with the relevant contact persons. We store various personal data of contact persons in order to perform our services in the best possible way. For example, we keep contact details to reach you and store areas of interest in order to be able to provide you with the best possible information.
Our sector is constantly changing, and we have to go along with the changes. This is why we recruit new clients, suppliers and sometimes new colleagues. We also process contact details and areas of interest in order to remain in touch with everyone.
You can reach us through various channels, including but not limited to: telephone, mail, e-mail and LinkedIn. We process personal data to make this possible.
We also use 'adapted target groups' via social media platforms. We do this via LinkedIn targeting. (Personalised) advertisements may be displayed on these platforms. We do not pass on any personal data to third parties to this end, unless you have given us unambiguous permission to do so.
If you do not want advertisements to be displayed via these platforms, you can use the contact details above to let us know this. You can also unsubscribe from these platforms.
Please note that you may subsequently still see ICC Consultants ads if you fall into a general target group at which we are directing our ad.
One of the objectives of our website is to let you know who we are and what we do. We collect and use personal data (including name, (e-mail) address and telephone number) to better serve or inform you. For example, we use your personal data to:
- be able to process questions or requests submitted by you
- process assignments or requests placed by you
- manage or otherwise perform obligations under an agreement you have with us
- anticipate or solve problems with goods or services supplied to you
- create products or services that can meet your requirements.
We may use your personal data for direct marketing purposes to optimise our services. This includes clicking behaviour on the website to analyse which articles, pages, white papers and infographics are most read, as well as open and click rates to see whether our newsletters and other e-mails are relevant. Because we respect your privacy, we will only use your personal data for such a purpose if you are aware of this; if necessary, we will ask for your permission before using your personal data for direct marketing purposes.
In addition, you can contact us as indicated below if, at any time, you no longer want us to use your data for one or more of the aforementioned reasons. In this case, we will stop using your information for these purposes as soon as reasonably possible.
We respect your personal data and will therefore take steps to ensure that your privacy rights remain protected if we transfer your data outside the EEA in this way. In addition, if you use our services when you are located outside the EEA, your information may be transferred outside the EEA in order to be able to provide you with those services.
You can rest assured that we will not use your information for any of the purposes listed if you have indicated this at the time of sending the data or at a later time.

POLICY WITH REGARD TO COOKIES
This document uses the term “cookies” to refer to cookies and similar technologies covered by the EU Directive on Privacy and Electronic Communications.
WHAT IS A COOKIE?
Cookies are small data files that your browser places on your computer or device. Cookies help your browser to navigate a website. The cookies cannot collect information stored on your computer or in your files.
If a server uses a web browser to read cookies, these cookies can help a website to provide a user- friendly service. To protect your privacy, your browser only gives a website access to cookies it has already sent to you.
WHAT ARE COOKIES USED FOR
Cookies remember the type of browser you use and which additional browser software you have installed. They also remember your preferences such as language and region, which will remain your default settings every time you visit the website. Cookies also allow you to rate pages and fill out forms in which you can make comments.
Some of the cookies we use are session cookies and they will last until you close your browser. Other cookies will remain on your computer for a longer period of time.
HOW ARE THIRD-PARTY COOKIES USED?
We deploy service providers for the execution of marketing activities. They are processors rather than "third-party recipients". For example, we work together with an ESP, a cloud environment, a website hosting provider, and we use Google services. These parties process personal data as commissioned by ICC Consultants.
We use various systems to carry out our marketing operations in the best possible way. The data retention periods are listed below.
Google Analytics: 26 months after the last activity on our website. Data can be stored outside the EU, and Google complies with the Privacy Shield in this regard.
CRM: We store personal data for the purpose of marketing activities. If it appears that a person is no longer employed by nor holds a relevant position within the company in question, this will be adjusted in the system and the data will be removed from our system after one year. These data will subsequently be available for a month in backups, after which they will be deleted completely. In the US, data are stored on SugarCRM servers; SugarCRM complies with the Privacy Shield.
SharpSpring: we store personal data for marketing purposes. The data in SharpSpring is synchronised with our CRM system. When it appears that a person is no longer employed by the company in question, this person will be deregistered, and they will no longer receive messages. These data will be removed from the system after one year. SharpSpring stores personal data in backups for seven days. Data can be stored outside the EU, and SharpSpring complies with the Privacy Shield.
Online Success and Leadboxer: these tools link company data to the IP address from which our website is visited.
For more information about the processing of personal data by these systems, please consult the privacy statement of the relevant organisation.
Automated decision-making with legal effect does not occur.
