Basis for data processing
We may only lawfully process your personal data if we do so on a legal basis. We process your personal data because this is necessary for the execution of the agreement between you and us, as laid down in Article 6 paragraph 1 sub b of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). In addition, we may process your personal data for another legitimate interest, such as informing our customers about current events or changes in our services. This basis is laid down in Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

Data processing purposes
We process your personal data for the following purposes:

  • To be able to e-mail you if this is necessary to be able to carry out our services;
  • Send you information in response to the contact form

Provision of your personal data to third parties
In principle, we only provide your personal data to third parties if you have given permission for this yourself. The provision of data without your consent takes place if this is necessary to be able to perform the agreement between you and us or if a legal obligation prescribes this.

Retention period
We will not keep your data for longer than is necessary for the purposes described in this privacy and cookie statement, unless this is necessary on the basis of a legal obligation.

Security Measures
We have taken appropriate technical and organizational measures to secure the personal data. We have based the choice of these measures on the available technology, the implementation costs, the type of personal data that we process for you (see article 4) and the associated risks. We strive to ensure that these measures meet the requirements of Article 32 of the GDPR. For example, our website has an SSL certificate and we use a firewall to prevent abuse.

What do we do to keep the personal data secret?
We are obliged to keep all personal data that we process for you secret from others. This concerns the data that we receive from you and/or that we collect ourselves to process it as we have agreed in our agreement. We agree on the following:

a. We guarantee that all our employees comply with this confidentiality obligation. This concerns employees in the broadest sense of the word, including interns and freelancers.

b. This confidentiality obligation does not apply:

◦ if you have given explicit permission to share certain personal data with others; or

◦ if the person to whom the personal data relates (for example a customer) has given explicit permission to share this data with others; or

◦ if there is a legal obligation to provide certain personal data to another body or person, for example to the Public Prosecution Service.
