We may process your information, because we request your consent through this privacy policy. Moreover, we need your information to enable the execution of the agreement between you and us. If you elect not to share your information, you will not be able to make optimal use of the services we provide. You will only be able to use the service to a (very) limited extent.

Furthermore, we will not process your information without your consent, unless we are obliged to under the law.

Login
In your account we store the following information: password and e-mail address. This way, you will not need to fill in the information again.

Emails
As a customer of Esteon you will receive e-mails. This way you will remain informed of the service provision and of any new housing matches. All communication through this channel will include an option to unsubscribe from this service. Please be aware that if you unsubscribe, we will no longer be able to inform you of new housing matches in the future.

We will use your information only for the above purposes or a purpose closely linked to this. This way, your information will never be used unexpectedly.
Our advice and preselection
Based on your information and the housing requirements you submitted, we will render an advice and draw up a preselection of rental homes and rooms. We do this on the basis of an algorithm that compares housing requirements and information with the data of available rental homes and rooms. An advice or a preselection may have for a result that certain rental homes or rooms are not displayed to you. It is important for us to render the advice and make the preselection because this is part of the proper functioning of our service provision. The key here is that as a customer you will benefit from such advice and preselections.
Security
We make every effort to protect your personal information against loss, destruction, use, adjustment or distribution by unauthorised persons. It prevents those who have nothing to do with your information from accessing it. We do this through the following measures:
• Encryption (encoding) of digital files that contain personal information;
• Securing internet connections with Secure Socket Layer (SSL) or a comparable technology;
• Limiting access to the information to those persons who require it; and
• NDAs (confidentiality statements for Esteon employees) and back-ups of the information.
Retention period
We will retain your personal information no longer than necessary for the purposes as we described here before. We will never retain your information for more than 5 years.
With whom do we share your personal information?
Processors of information
There are cases when other parties receive your information from us. We conclude a processor agreement with these parties to ensure they handle your information with due care and they will only receive the information required for them to provide their service. These parties use your information only in conformity with our instructions and not for their own purposes. For example, we may submit your information to our payment provider when a payment is made, to the mail provider for the system e-mails or to Freshdesk for support. The processor(s) will ensure payments can be made, e-mails can be sent or support can be provided. These parties are processors within the sense of the Relevant Legislation.
