Personal data is carefully processed and secured by us. We stick to the requirements imposed in that regard by the General Data Protection Regulation (AVG). Gert van Hoef is responsible for data processing on the website. Because our data processing is covered by the statutory exemption regulations, they are not registered with the Dutch Data Protection Authority (Dutch DPA). In this privacy statement, we explain what personal data we collect and use, and for what purposes.
This privacy statement was last amended on 30 april 2020.
When you use our website, certain details may be left behind on it. This can include personal data. You can provide personal data to us either actively or passively. Data that is provided actively is information that you fill in yourself on the website or for instance send to us by e-mail. In addition, the website can automatically store information, sometimes without you being aware of it. In that case, the data has been provided passively. This privacy statement tells you precisely what actively and passively provided data is processed and for what purposes.
Data that is no longer required will be deleted. You have the right to ask to see and correct or delete your data. Please refer to the contact details at the bottom of this privacy statement for this. To prevent misuse and/or fraud, we may then ask you to provide appropriate identification.
If you request information or a quotation from us, we store the data that is required in order to handle your request for information or an offer. We use that data to contact you and follow up your request for information.
If you complete a contact form on the website or send us an e-mail, then the data you send to us will be retained for as long as is necessary (depending on the type of form or the content of your e-mail) to answer or deal with it in full.
We do not pass on the data you provide to us to any third party unless this is necessary in the context of an agreement that you enter into with us, or if we are legally obliged to do so. In cases of suspected fraud or misuse of our website, we may also pass on personal data to the competent authorities.
We have a newsletter in which we want to keep people who are interested informed about our products, services and related matters. Your e-mail address will only be added to the list of subscribers with your express permission. On top of that, every newsletter contains a link that you can use to unsubscribe. The list of newsletter subscribers will not be provided to third parties.
We use appropriate security procedures, for instance to prevent unauthorised parties from accessing personal data.
General data about visits to the website is retained. In this context, the IP address of your computer can be recorded, along with any username, the time of the query and details provided by the user’s browser, and used for statistical analyses of visitor and clicking behaviour on the website. We attempt to anonymise this data as much as possible. We do not pass this data on to third parties.
We consider all cookies on our website to be necessary and these will always be installed. If you wish to remove these cookies you can do so by using the Google Analytics Opt-out Browser Add-on. This Add-on prevents information on visitor information being shared with Google Analytics.
Cookies can always be blocked and removed quite simply via your internet browser. You can configure your internet browser in such a way that you receive a message when a cookie is installed. You can also indicate when you do not want to have specific cookies installed. Consult the help function on your browser for this possibility. If you remove the cookies in your browser, this may affect the smooth running of the website. Some tracking cookies are installed by third parties who, for example, display adverts via our website. These cookies can be removed centrally via www.youronlinechoices.eu.
We also make use of social media-related cookies. This enables social media, such as Facebook and LinkedIn, to register which articles and pages you share via their social-media sharing buttons. They can also contain tracking cookies which track your browsing history on the web.
You should be aware that by removing cookies, we can no longer guarantee that our website will function optimally. It might be the case that some functions on the site are missing or even that you can no longer visit the site at all. In addition, blocking cookies does not necessarily mean you will not see any more adverts. It may only be that the adverts you see are no longer matched to your interests and so for that reason are repeated more often.
How you adjust your settings can differ per browser. If necessary, consult the help function in your browser, or click on one of the links below to go directly to your browser’s user instructions.
Our website uses certain services from Google, such as Google Analytics, that may utilise cookies and other techniques to record information about how users use the website. Google passes the information that is obtained this way, including the address of your computer (its IP address), through to their servers in the United States on which it is also stored.
Google uses this information to keep track of how our website is used, to let reports be generated for us about the website and to provide information to its advertisers about the effectiveness of their campaigns. Google may provide that information to third parties if legally required to do so, or insofar as third parties process that information on behalf of Google. We have no control over this.
This privacy statement does not apply to third-party websites that are associated with this website through links. We cannot guarantee that these third parties will handle your personal data confidentially or safely. We therefore recommend that you read the privacy statements of such websites before using them.
We are aware that you have the following rights with regard to your data:
If you wish to make a request on the basis of the above rights, please contact us. We may ask you for proof of your identity for the purpose of verification purposes.
We reserve the right to make amendments to this privacy statement. It is therefore recommended that this privacy statement should be consulted regularly, so that you are aware of any changes.
