Privacy policy MaastrichtMBA

Since MaastrichtMBA is part of Maastricht University, the same UM privacy policy applies for the MaastrichtMBA programme.


Protecting your privacy is important to MaastrichtMBA and Maastricht University (UM) therefore treats your data with care. MaastrichtMBA is the controller of your personal data. This privacy policy explains how MaastrichtMBA handles personal data.


Your personal data may be collected and processed for a specific purpose. If this specific purpose is not expressly specified in this privacy policy, you will be informed in advance about this specific purpose in a separate privacy policy.


What personal data does MaastrichtMBA process:

MaastrichtMBA always has a purpose for processes personal data, and does not process more data than is necessary for that purpose. A general overview of these purposes can be found further on in this privacy policy.


MaastrichtMBA receives personal data directly from you or from a third party that is authorised or required to share this personal data with MaastrichtMBA.


Here you can find an overview of the categories of (special) personal data that MaastrichtMBA and UM may process.


Sensitive personal data are data that are special in nature. For example, these can be data that reveal your race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership or sexual orientation. The term sensitive personal data also includes data about your health, genetic data or biometric data through which you can be identified (e.g. a fingerprint). MaastrichtMBA only processes sensitive data when it is permitted to do so by law.


Lawful basis for the processing of personal data by MaastrichtMBA:

Whenever MaastrichtMBA processes your personal data, it does so with a lawful basis for processing. A lawful basis for processing is the grounds for processing personal data.

  • to perform a contract with you;
  • to comply with a statutory obligation;
  • to protect your vital interests or the vital interests of a third party;
  • to serve the legitimate interests of MaastrichtMBA or a third party;

Further processing:

The basic principle is that MaastrichtMBA uses personal data for the purpose for which the data was collected. In some cases, MaastrichtMBA uses the personal data collected for other purposes too. These purposes must always be compatible with the original purpose of processing. Before further processing takes place, MaastrichtMBA therefore carefully considers whether the new purpose is compatible with the original purpose of processing.
