In the Netherlands the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) has become law as of 25 of May 2018. Archon wants to be transparent about how it processes your personal data. On the other hand, a rigid interpretation and application of this law would not only result in a significant amount of administrative work for Archon’s relatively small office, but would also be at odds with what is reasonable for a research school and what it aims to achieve in its field. Therefore, Archon will not ask express consent from you. Instead, Archon hereby explains how it processes your personal data.

What data do we keep?
We keep your name, e-mail address, position and institution. We will only ask for your postal address if we have to send an invoice. We do not keep personal postal addresses.

What do we do with your data?
We use your e-mail address to send newsletters and other mailings. When you are a PhD candidate, a senior member (postdoc, associate professor, professor) or a ReMA student registered at Archon, we will store these data in Archon’s records until membership ends. We can mention your name, position and institution on Archon’s website. We will not share your e-mail address with third parties.

What if you disagree?
It is not possible to be a member of Archon or to be registered at Archon without us using your data the way we have outlined above. If you want to cancel your membership or registration at Archon, you can send an e-mail to Archon’s office:

You can unsubscribe from our mailings at any time, but if you are a member (PhD candidate, postdoc, associate professor, professor or a ReMA student) registered at Archon, we will still store your data in Archon’s record until membership ends.
