The information that we collect
The information that you provide:
Zero to One is a B2B company that provides facilitation and acceleration services to startups and scaleups. We help you get a startup permit and set up your business in the Netherlands. We also help you further develop your business. We collect the following information when you contact us or sign up for an event via the website:
- Your name.
- Your email address.
- Communication between you and Zero to One (we might send you service-related emails ).
You might provide us with your business plan and add other sensitive data, which is a way for us to get to know you early on in this process but it does add more risks to privacy. Additionally, you provide us with information that the government needs for your startup visa application. Such information includes bank statements, passport copy, family members identification documents (if applicable) and proof of the innovative character of your product/service. For the startup visa you also have to do a TB test, which is a medical test for tuberculosis.
