  • to enable users to enter into and administer agreements relating to our services;
  • to contact you at your request;

We publish a newsletter to keep recipients up to date with news in our areas of expertise, such as accountancy, tax, corporate finance and grants. If you purchase particular products or services from us, we may also inform you about related products or services, unless you ask us not to. Your email address will only be added to the subscriber list with your explicit consent. Every newsletter includes an unsubscribe link.

Permission for the use of visual material

If you participate in or are present at events of DRV or in which DRV is involved as a participant or sponsor, you may be recorded in footage to promote the event. By signing this statement, you consent to these images being used for internal and external communications via the website and other online and offline communication channels of DRV. You always have the option to make it known that photographs may no longer be used and must be removed. In order to submit your request, please contact us at

Job applications

When submitting your job application, you rightfully expect us to treat your personal data as private and confidential. We consider it our responsibility to protect your privacy.

Before we can process your application, contact request or registration for a newsletter/promotion, we ask you to carefully read this privacy statement and agree with the manner in which we will handle your data.

We collect your personal data and record it within the context of our service provision. This concerns the following data:

  • First name, surname and gender, so that we can address you correctly;
  • Address details, so that we can identify which vacancies are within commutable distance;
  • Telephone number and email address, so that we can inform you about vacancies, your application procedure and invite you for an interview or events/promotions;
  • Information about availability and employment history, because it is in your interest that we match you to the vacancies that are of interest to you given your experience;
  • Personal data actively provided by you, for example by applying via the website, through correspondence and by telephone;
  • (Passport) photograph;
  • Any other details that you state on your curriculum vitae;
  • Any information provided by you during the application procedure;
  • Data obtained from assessments and other selection tools;
  • Notes about our impression of you and of your knowledge and experience obtained on the basis of your application and any interviews.

DRV only records special personal data (as referred to in the Personal Data Protection Act) after you have given your permission. If you upload your (passport) photo (voluntary), you also give permission for it to be stored. You can ask us to remove the photograph from our system at any time. The same applies to the voluntary video application (via Whatsapp or otherwise). We do not intend to collect data about website visitors under the age of 16 unless with the permission from parents or guardians. However, we can’t check if a visitor is older than 16. We, therefore, encourage parents to be involved in the online activities of their children, in order to prevent data about children being collected without their consent. If you suspect that we have collected data from a minor without said permission, please contact us via In that case, we will delete the data.

Purposes and bases for processing your data when applying for a job

We process and collect your (personal) data subject to your permission. That is why we ask permission to process your data for the following purposes:

  • In order to accept your application and handle it adequately with a view to our vacancies;
  • In order to follow up your contact request, when leaving your details on our website. For example, because you are interested in a vacancy or in what DRV can offer you as an employer;
  • In order to process your registration for our newsletter, promotion or event and to keep you informed of our vacancies and news about working at DRV.

Furthermore, we will use your personal data for the following purposes:

  • In order to contact you if you have left your data for a promotion or event, such as our DRV bicycle raffle or an in-house day;
  • In order to actively approach you when we think you are the ideal candidate for our vacancy and to include you in our relevant talent pools;
  • In order to ask you if you want to help us improve our procedures and website by giving your opinion.

We do not collect and/or use data for purposes other than those described in this Privacy Statement unless we have obtained your permission in advance.

Retention period in the event of a job application

We will keep your personal data for a period of one year, thus giving us sufficient time to keep you informed of your application and a reasonable period after your application/registration to approach you about other interesting vacancies. After that period, your data will be automatically removed from our administration and recruitment system or made anonymous so that this data cannot be traced back to you.

Data Protection Officer

In accordance with the applicable laws and regulations, we are obliged to appoint a Data Protection Officer who monitors your privacy at DRV. The Data Protection Officer at DRV is Arnout Van Kempen. If you wish to submit a complaint, you can do so by contacting the Data Protection Officer. Please send your message to and/or call +31 (0)165-573700.
