Obligation to transfer personal information
As an applicant, you are not obliged to provide your personal information. Fingerprints & Screening only needs this information to prepare the documents and verify your identity. It is always possible to write the personal information on the documents by hand during an appointment at our office. We can check your identity on the spot on the basis of a valid passport and a second valid ID. Fingerprints & Screening cannot arrange the identity statement for you, this means that you will receive the fingerprint cards from us with your fingerprints on them and that we will stamp and sign a copy of your passport after an authenticity check. In this case, the risk that the relevant police organization will not accept your documents due to the absence of an identity statement from Fingerprints & Screening is your own responsibility. Fingerprints & Screening cannot offer any guarantees and is not responsible if these are not accepted due to the missing statement.
The information that is required to be disclosed concerns your name, address and e-mail address. Fingerprints & Screening needs this information to be able to draw up the invoice and to contact you about this, if necessary.
Who has access to the personal information
Only the Fingerprints & Screening fingerprint technician has access to your personal information. This personal information only needs to be viewed for the preparation of the correct documents. If an employee does not have a login code or an accepted fingerprint to open the computer on which this information is stored, he cannot request the information.
Fingerprints & Screening does not store the applicant's personal data for longer than necessary. This information is only necessary to prepare the documents for the country in question. When the fingerprints have been taken and the invoice has been paid by the applicant, the data will be deleted immediately. After the fingerprints have been taken, the data will not be kept for longer than a week, unless the applicant has not paid the invoice within a week, in which case we will keep the name, telephone number and address details of the applicant for a while in order to be able to make contact in case a payment is not made.
If the applicant chooses that we send the documents to the relevant police organization, we will do our utmost to send them the same day, so that no data remains at our office longer than strictly necessary. The documents are always sent by express mail, where the recipient always has to sign. This way we know for sure that the documents have arrived and who has received the documents. The applicant will always receive a tracking number from us, so that the documents can also be followed by the applicant himself.
Fingerprints & Screening processes the data on a specially equipped computer. These are not used for other activities and only the fingerprint technician can log in to this computer with a special code or fingerprint.
The requested information can be entered in a PDF document by the applicant, who can return the password-protected PDF document to Fingerprints & Screening. It is important that the applicant makes the password known by means of an app/sms to the fingerprint technician. If the applicant chooses not to return the document securely to the fingerprint technician, this is his risk. Even then, Fingerprints & Screening will strictly ensure that the data sent is removed as soon as possible after the application has been processed.
Fingerprints & Screening offers a shipping service. This means that Fingerprints & Screening will send the documents by express mail to the relevant police organization at the request of the applicant. This always includes a confirmation email from the applicant showing that the applicant has submitted the application to the relevant police organization. This is therefore also the direct permission to transfer the data.
Under no circumstances will Fingerprints & Screening share your personal information with third parties other than sending the documents to the relevant police organizations upon request, unless the applicant submits a special request for this.
An example of this is that if the documents need to be legalized at the court, the ministry and the embassy and they want to engage a company for this, we can contact this company at the request of the applicant. The application will always be made by the applicant himself, but Fingerprints & Screening may provide the applicant's name or the tracking number of the documents, so that this party also knows when the documents will arrive. In such a case, the applicant will always be included in CC in the email conversation.
