If you think that the processing of your personal data violates the GDPR, you can submit a complaint to the Data Protection Officer. The Data Protection Officer can be reached through fg@uva.nlExternal link.

What is the role of the Data Protection Officer?

The UvA has a Data Protection Officer (FG). The FG acts as a watchdog for the processing of personal data within the UvA and advises on the implementation of the GDPR and other relevant rules. The FG acts as intermediary between the UvA and the supervisory body, the Dutch Data Protection Authority.

The Data Protection Officer acts independently and can consider your complaint or get advice from the Dutch Data Protection Authority.

If you are unsatisfied with the way your complaint has been handled by the Data Protection Officer, you can directly submit a complaint to the Dutch Data Protection AuthorityExternal link. The latter will process your complaint or request and make a decision.
