Our website is: https://weaver-hfe.com. At Weaver Human Factors Engineering we care about your privacy. This page tells you about what we do with personal data, how we protect personal data and how you can exercise the rights you have under privacy legislation.
WHAT ARE PERSONAL DATA?
Your name, your home address or email address are examples of personal data. Personal data means any information that is traceable to you as a person.
WHY DO WE USE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
Whenever you wish to receive information from Weaver Human Factors Engineering, we need your details so that we can send the information. We also save the data you provide when you request, for example, a (digital) report. In addition, we process your personal data so that we can send digital press releases. In such cases, we use your personal data based on your consent.
For test partcipants:
Your personal data may be used when you participate in research conducted by Weaver Human Factors Engineering. Weaver Human Factors Engineering is allowed to use personal data when conducting research. When special personal data such as health data are required for this purpose, we always explicitly ask for your consent. The data from the surveys are anonymized and the so-called ‘raw data’ is not shared with the client. Prior to collecting personal quotes from participants in a specific project, we always ask for permission.
HOW LONG DO WE KEEP YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
We do not keep your personal data any longer than is necessary for the purpose for which it is being held. If you have signed up to receive information from us, and you later sign off, we delete your personal data.
When we complete a project or study that involves use of your data because you were a participant, your data are deleted once they are no longer needed for archiving purposes. By this we mean that for an extended period it needs to be possible to substantiate the results of the study by referring to the underlying data. In this situation, we will protect the personal data by giving them a pseudonym or rendering them anonymous, if possible. Data that have been given a pseudonym can no longer be traced directly to you as a participant. Data that have been rendered anonymous can never be traced to you.
HOW DO WE SECURE YOUR PERSONAL DATA?
Weaver Human Factors Engineering values your privacy and we take care to secure personal data provided by you. In order to optimally protect your personal data against loss, theft, unauthorized access or misuse, we take the correct technical and organizational measures to keep your personal data secure, which includes the use of the latest security technology. In terms of organization we have arranged for research data to be accessible exclusively by employees involved in the research in question.
DO WE GIVE PERSONAL DATA TO OTHER ORGANIZATIONS?
We adhere to the principle that we do not share your personal data with others. The data will not be sold. However, there are exceptions whereby we are required to give personal data to others. These are always exceptional circumstances, such as legal proceedings or crime prevention.
WHAT ARE YOUR PRIVACY RIGHTS?
Under the prevailing privacy legislation, you have various rights you can exercise to keep control of the personal data an organization collects about you and uses. For example, you are entitled to access the personal data that we have about you. This right of access is intended to enable you to check whether the data are correct and to make any rectifications as necessary. You can also check whether we have used the data lawfully. As well as the right of access, you have the right to object against the use of your data by Weaver Human Factors Engineering.
If you wish to exercise your privacy rights, you can fill in this Privacy feedback form.

Your request will always be processed but this does not necessarily mean that your request can be granted.

This may be the case, for example, where personal data are used to conduct research.
