We are Van Haren Learning Solutions. We aim to help organizations in achieving their goals by sharing our best practice ecosystem. This includes things in our ecosystem such as certification, accreditation, examination, and an extensive network with and through our partners.

Van Haren Learning Solutions processes your personal data within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”). Van Haren Publishing attaches great importance to the protection of privacy of its subscribers, customers, and visitors to its website(s).

Our website and/or service does not intend to collect data on website visitors who are under 16 years of age. Unless they have permission from parents or guardians. However, we cannot verify whether a visitor is over 16. We therefore recommend that parents be involved in their children’s online activities, in order to prevent the collection of data about children without parental consent. If you are convinced that we have collected personal data on a minor without that permission, please contact us at, and we will delete this information.


Van Haren Learning Solutions uses your personal data for the purposes for which you have provided it. In other cases, we will only use it for legal or other legitimate purposes. Lawfulness of processing is one of the most important principles regarding the processing of your personal data.
