For visitors of our website the following applies:

By accepting this privacy policy when submitting your personal data, you consent to us contacting you with newsletter and promotions by email. When you receive newsletters or promotional communications from us, you may “opt-out” by following the unsubscribe instructions provided in emails you receive from us or by contacting us directly at the contact information below. You do not have to provide us with any personal data, however if you do not do, so we may not be able to provide the Services to you.

Note: We will never use any personal data collected via our applications for marketing purposes.


Drieam does not display any advertisements within their applications. Third party processors cannot use processed data for tracking or advertising purposes.

The processing of your data must have a legal basis. In most cases, this will be the execution of an agreement, a legal obligation or our legitimate interests. To offer you the best possible service it is necessary to process your data. If there is a legitimate interest, we will check whether we believe that your interests do not outweigh ours.

Personal information you submit to us is used either to respond to requests that you make, or to aid us in serving you better. Drieam uses your personal data in the following ways: to create and maintain your account; to identify you as a user in our system; to notate and assign support tickets that you may initiate; to operate, maintain, and improve our Services; to personalise and improve your experience; to send you administrative e-mail; to respond to your comments or inquiries; to send you surveys, promotional communications about our products and services with your permission; to protect, investigate, and deter against fraudulent, unauthorised, or illegal activity; and to make telephone calls to you, from time to time, as a part of secondary fraud protection or to solicit your feedback with your permission.

We may use data which has been de-identified and aggregated for additional purposes.

We will retain your personal data for the period necessary to fulfil the purposes outlined in this privacy policy and will not store this information for more than one (1) year after the data is no longer necessary for those purposes and as necessary to comply with our legal obligations, resolve disputes, and enforce our agreements.

We will share your personal data with third parties only in the ways that are described as follows or with your express consent.

Third Party Service Providers

We may disclose your information to third parties if we determine that such disclosure is legally required or reasonably necessary for the execution of the agreement. Relevant examples of such disclosure include submitting your personal data to a third party that is responsible for executing an agreement or using this data to accurately respond to questions or complaints. For example, we may share data with service providers who host our websites or provide email services on our behalf.

We keep data in Europe as far as possible, and we have concluded a data processing agreement (DPA) with each of our partners. In addition, we only work with partners located in the European Union, or in the United States, provided they comply with the GDPR rules and regulations when processing our data. This means that they meet security requirements that are considered adequate by the European Commission. You hereby authorize us to store personal data outside the European Economic Area.

An updated list of the partners which might have access to the processed/ collected data by Drieam you can find on our website:


We use HubSpot. HubSpot is a platform, which makes it possible to combine marketing, sales and customer service. Therefore, HubSpot receives information about you when you request a demo/free trial or download a whitepaper.

The purpose of the processing of personal data is client accounting and, in some cases, we might use personal data for direct marketing or commercial reasons.

The lawful basis of the processing can either be consent, performance of a contract or our legitimate interest, depending on how we use HubSpot. If we make use of the CRM function the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract. We need the CRM function of HubSpot to get in touch with you. The lawful basis of the marketing purpose is our legitimate interest. We believe the way HubSpot works is making a minimum impact on your privacy and you the possibility to opt-out. On the other hand, we do need HubSpot to generate new leads. In the case we did not use HubSpot, it would be very hard for us to find new clients. Even though we believe we have a legitimate interest in using the marketing function of HubSpot, in some cases we can ask for your consent.

For more information on how HubSpot deals with the privacy and security of your data, we refer you to their privacy policy.

Educational Institution or Other Course Provider

We will share your information with the educational institution or organisation which is linked to your use of the Services. This would apply if your educational institution uses our Services and has given you access to the Services.

Other Disclosures

Drieam may disclose information about you if it believes such disclosure is necessary to (a) comply with laws or to respond to lawful requests and legal process; or (b) protect or defend the rights, safety, or property of Drieam, users of the Services, or any person including to enforce our agreements, policies, and terms of use, or (c) in an emergency to protect the personal safety of any person.

We may also share de-identified and aggregated data with others for their own uses.

    Individuals have the right to access the personal data we collect and may obtain a copy of this data by contacting us.

You can change (some of) your personal data in your account by editing your profile or by contacting us. We will respond to your request within 4 weeks as is permitted by law.
    In some circumstances, you have the “right to be forgotten”. Those circumstances include:

    Individuals reserve the right to minimise the processing of your personal data. If we are informed that we are using incorrect personal data, we will not use this data until it has been rectified. We will furthermore restrict processing data if the processing is either unlawful or no longer necessary, or you oppose the erasure of your personal data and instead request the restriction of their use.
    You reserve the right to data portability, i.e. to receive the personal data concerning you that you have provided to us.
    You have the right to object to direct marketing. You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data, if your personal data is used for purposes other than necessary for the execution of an agreement or necessary for compliance with a legal obligation.
