The personal information we collect comes from the information entered into the contact form by visitors on the DSTS website. These are: your name and email address and, optionally, your phone number and/or company/institution name.

We process this information because it is the minimal requirement for opening communications with visitors who seek to communicate with us.

We use Google Analytics to analyse the log data so as to map out the behaviour of visitors of the DSTS website. These analyses will be used to improve the functionality of the website.

Retention period

In accordance with Dutch administrative laws we keep the information collected on record for a minimum of seven years, unless we receive an e-mail requesting deletion. Such requests will be processed immediately.


The security of your Personal Information is important to us, but remember that no method of transmission over the Internet, or method of electronic storage, is 100% secure.
