We hereby undertake to always comply with the General Data Protection Regulation ("GDPR") and other applicable regulations.


For further questions or remarks in connection with the way we handle your personal data, you can always contact us, either by e-mail to or by letter to the address of our offices.

2. What is the meaning of “processing personal data”?

Processing personal data (hereinafter "data") includes any processing of data that can identify you as a natural person. You can read about what data is involved in this Privacy Policy. The term "processing" is very broad and covers, among other things, collecting, storing, using your data, or sharing it with third parties.


3. What personal data do we process? 

Below we clarify what personal data we may process from you. Depending on the specific situation, your preferences and the way in which you contact us, we may not process all of the data below. 


From all our contacts we may process the data below:


Customers and business partners

From (contact persons of) our customers and business partners we may additionally process the following data:

4. For what purposes and on what legal grounds do we process personal data? 

We only process your personal data for legitimate purposes that are part of our organisation’s activities. The processing is always based on the legal grounds listed in the GDPR.



The processing steps below are potentially relevant to all of our contacts.



Customers and business partners 

From our customers and business partners we process the personal data additionally for the following purposes:




5. With whom do we share your personal data? 

We will not transfer your data to third parties, unless this is necessary for achieving one of the aforementioned purposes, you give your consent for such transfer, or we are required to do so by law. 


Where necessary we engage external service providers, so called “data processors”, to support our operational purposes such as providing our services, managing our IT systems or performing any other (internal) business processes such as the digital storage of our customer files. These external service providers may perform certain processing activities on your data on our behalf. We will only share your data with these external service providers to the extent necessary for the relevant purpose. The data may not be used for any other purposes by these third parties. In addition, these service providers are contractually bound to ensure the confidentiality of your data by means of a so-called “data processing agreement” concluded with these parties.


Specifically, this means that we share your data, to the extent relevant in your situation, with the following third parties for the following purposes, with these third parties in certain cases acting as processors on our behalf:


  • Payment service providers if we receive payments from you, or vice versa; 

  • Processors who assist us in the IT field such as cloud service providers; 

  • Government bodies, judicial authorities and practitioners of regulated professions such as accountants and lawyers, for the purpose of complying with our legal obligations and defending our interests, as required.


6. How long do we store your personal data? 

We do not store your data for longer than is necessary in order to achieve the purpose for which the data has been collected or processed, as specified above.


Since the period for which the data can be stored depends on the purposes for which the data has been collected, the storage period will vary according to the individual situation. Sometimes specific legislation will require that we store certain data for a certain period. Our retention periods for personal data are based on legal requirements and balancing your rights and expectations against what is useful and necessary to provide our services, or allow you to provide your services to us.


When it is no longer necessary to process your data, we will delete or anonymize your data. If this is not (technically) possible, for example because your data is stored in backup archives, then we will retain your data, but we will not further process it and will remove it when this becomes possible.

7. From whom do we obtain your personal data? 

As a customer or business partner, we mainly obtain your personal data directly from you. However, we cannot rule out obtaining certain of your personal data indirectly in specific circumstances, from public sources or from third parties.


We may also obtain personal data indirectly from our customers or business partners. 


For example we may obtain your personal data indirectly from public sources. This mainly concerns limited data about your organisation that is publicly available, such as on the website of your organisation, or in the company register of your country. 


In the event we obtain your data indirectly, we will inform you about the processing of your data no later than at the time of our first contact with you.


8. Where do we store your personal data and how do we protect it? 

Your personal data is mainly stored externally with specialised third parties, such as the external service providers we engage for hosting our website. We try to engage external service providers that are based inside the European Economic Area (EEA). 


However, it is possible that your personal data is transferred outside the EEA. As a result, your personal data may be transferred outside the countries where we and you are located. This includes to third countries outside the EEA and to countries that do not have laws that provide specific protection for personal data. We have taken steps to ensure all personal data is provided with adequate protection and that all transfers of personal data outside the EEA are done lawfully.


Where we transfer personal data outside of the EEA to a country not determined by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of protection for personal data, the transfers will be under an agreement which covers the EU requirements for the transfer of personal data outside the EU, such as the European Commission approved standard contractual clauses or your explicit consent that will be requested before transferring your personal data outside of the EEA. 


In any case, we and our processors have taken the necessary technical and organizational measures with a view to protecting your data against loss or any form of unlawful processing.


9. What are your rights? 

You have several rights concerning the personal data we process about you. If you wish to exercise any of the rights set out below, please contact us using the contact details provided in the first heading of this Privacy Policy.
