Privacy policy


On 25 May 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (abbreviated as and hereinafter referred to as “GDPR”) became applicable. We, INSPECT2gether, have conceived our policies to be in accordance with the GDPR. In this Privacy Policy, INSPECT2gether describes the principles it applies when processing personal data. The scope of this Privacy Policy is limited to the processing of personal data in relation to the performance of online services by INSPECT2gether.

Our Objective

INSPECT2gether (, hereinafter referred to as the “Website”) is an online service platform that facilitates the sharing of auditing activities among manufacturers at a supplier commonly used by these manufacturers for either different or the same purposes (the “Shared Audit”). The objective of this Privacy Policy is to describe the type of personal information and data that we gather from you, being either a customer of INSPECT2gether or a visitor of our Website. We also describe in this Privacy Policy why we process your personal data and based on what legal grounds, with whom we share your personal data and our obligations regarding your personal data that we manage and control.

Who is INSPECT2gether?

INSPECT2gether is the trade name of the Dutch limited liability company Biotech Eureka B.V., having offices at Weidemolen 14 at (2211 PW) Noordwijkerhout, the Netherlands.

INSPECT2gether operates as the ‘Data Controller’ for personal data gathered from and processed on the Website and within our company.  If you have questions or wish to raise a complaint with us regarding how we have handled your personal data, you can email our Data Privacy Officer at, who will respond within 3 business days.

By ‘Data Controller’ we mean that INSPECT2gether determines the purpose and means of the processing of your personal data. INSPECT2gether also determines which party processes personal data on behalf of INSPECT2gether; such a party is referred to as the ‘Processor’.

INSPECT2gether has entered into a data processing agreements with any Processor it involves in its services, as detailed below under the header “Who do we share your personal data with?”, setting out the (mutual) responsibilities of the Processor and INSPECT2gether in the processing of your personal data.

What personal information do we gather from you?

The Website allows users to browse its content and for users to become a member. A membership to INSPECT2gether permits simplification and synchronization of audit-scheduling activities between manufacturers and suppliers (a “Membership”, and each entity / person benefitting from a Membership referred to as “Member”). To become a Member (either as a supplier or a manufacturer), we need to process basic personal data from you, as set out below.

For Manufacturers:
The unique ID, name, address, zip code, city and country in which the manufacturer operates, type of membership you elect, phone number, email address and website.

For Suppliers:
The unique ID, name, address, zip code, city and country in which the supplier operates, phone number, email address and website.

This is information provided by you directly to us during the Membership process. In addition, any forms that you fill out or information provided over the phone or via email, for example, surveys and requests, may contain personal data and this data is gathered by our system and stored by it for processing so as to support the membership processes. If you use our Website, we do capture your IP address. This allows us to provide certain geographical insight.

Why do we process your personal information?

INSPECT2gether only shares your personal data with other Members if such benefits the purpose of Shared Audits. The purpose of Shared Audits is to facilitate and coordinate the scheduling of auditing activities at suppliers that are used by multiple manufacturers. INSPECT2gether shares such personal data that is minimally required to fulfill such purpose.

In practice, this means that INSPECT2gether processes your personal data to:
1.       complete the customer Membership application process;
2.       undertake the appropriate billing processes;
3.       address your questions and follow-up or contact you in case there are issues
with or questions about our service;
4.       keep you informed of potential Shared Audits on the basis of audit slots made     
available by suppliers;
5.       appoint a ‘lead contact’ responsible to schedule the audit agendas;
6.       efficiently undertake other services related matters on your behalf like                 
coordination of a Third Party Auditor who will perform the Shared Audit.  
7.       Processing your movements within our website so as to better understand how to 
optimize our web environment for the future and to make it more user friendly               
for you.

We will not process your personal data for other reasons than those listed except for reasons related to public, governmental, compliance-related, statutory, legal claims, medical care, personal emergencies or other legitimate interests or obligations placed on our organization by authorized parties.

The legal basis for processing your personal data is one or more of the following grounds:

  • You have provided consent to the processing of your personal data for the purpose to operate Shared Audits (article 6.1 (a) GDPR), but note that you may withdraw such consent any time;
  • Processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which you are a party or in order to take steps prior to entering into a contract upon your request (article 6.1 (b) GDPR), so it is not a statutory requirement and you are of course by no means obliged to conclude such contract;
  • Processing is necessary for the legitimate interest of INSPECT2gether, consisting of the operation of its online platform facilitating Shared Audits (article 6.1 (f) GDPR).

Who do we share your personal data with?

INSPECT2gether does not sell or provide in any way any of your personal data to third parties.

We will share your personal data that you provided to us (with your approval as part of the confirmed Shared Audit process) with other Members. These are companies that are trusted and have approved and confirmed membership behavior as set forward in our Service Level Agreement and Non-Disclosure Agreement. They are not allowed to process your information for their own purposes.

We do provide your personal data, upon your approval, to outside companies that we partner with for Third Party Audit support. We also provide the personal information such as email campaigns to you Each of these vendors processes your personal information on our behalf and we have concluded data processing agreements with these parties, requiring appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure the safety of your personal data.

INSPECT2gether takes privacy and security pledge seriously and so do the companies that we work with in these matters.

Privacy by default

INSPECT2gether bases all data processing activities on the principles of privacy by design and privacy by fault.

Privacy by design means that INSPECT2gether will take into account the state of the art, the cost of implementation and the nature, scope, context and purposes of processing as well as the risks of varying likelihood and severity for rights and freedoms and shall both at the time of the determination of the means for processing and at the time of the processing itself, implement appropriate technical and organizational measures, such as pseudonymization, which are designed to implement data protection principles, such as data minimization, in an effective manner and to integrate the necessary safeguards into the processing in order to meet the requirements of the GDPR.

Privacy by default means that INSPECT2gether, as a Data Controller, shall implement appropriate technical and organizational measures for ensuring that, by default, only personal data which are necessary for each specific purpose of the processing are processed. That obligation applies to the amount of personal data collected, the extent of their processing, the period of their storage and their accessibility. In particular, such measures shall ensure that by default personal data are not made accessible without the Member's intervention to an indefinite number of natural persons.

INSPECT2gether applies the principles of privacy by design and privacy by default as follows.

Data minimization
INSPECT2gether will only process personal data during a Membership in as far as this is necessary based on the goals of the Shared Audit or on a legal obligation to process that personal data.

INSPECT2gether is transparent about the functions and processing of the personal data of Members for the planning, coordination and scheduling of a Shared Audit and INSPECT2gether provides information about these activities to its Members. INSPECT2gether will also inform its Members about the possibility to contact its ‘Data Privacy Officer’.

If any of our Processors suspects any possible breach in your personal data, such Processor will first notify us within 48 hours after its discovery. A ‘breach’ is (i) any unauthorized or unintended access, modification, deletion or loss, or any kind of unlawful processing of your personal data, or (ii) any breach (or reasonable suspicion thereof) of the security and/or confidentiality that will lead to destruction, loss, modification, unlawful disclosure or access to personal data, or any indication that a breach is likely to occur or has occurred.
