Explanation of your rights
We inform you about the way in which you can influence the personal data that we process about you through your so-called privacy rights. Below we explain to you as clearly as possible what those different rights entail exactly. If you really want to know what's going on, you can view the GDPR (AVG) here ; your rights are set out in Articles 15 to 22.
The right of access means that you may ask us which personal data we process about you and to send you a copy of this data. In addition to providing the data, we will then inform you again about the use, origin and destination of that data and about your rights with regard to that data.
The right to rectification means that you may ask us to correct your data if the data we have about you is incorrect, or to add an additional statement to your file.
We will always handle requests in the context of your rights as quickly as possible. In any case, we will respond to your request within 30 days.
In some cases you do not want your data to be used any longer, but you also do not want it to be destroyed. For those cases is the right to restriction. Your data will then be frozen, as it were, and will no longer be used until further notice. You can invoke this right if you:
- believes that the information we hold about you is incorrect;
- believe that we are using your data unlawfully;
- want to secure the data for a lawsuit, for example.
When we process your data on the basis of your consent, such as with newsletters, or accidentally continue to process it while it is no longer necessary for the original purpose, you may ask us to destroy your data. We will then destroy your data as soon as possible, unless they are necessary for another purpose, such as complying with a statutory retention obligation.
The rights mentioned above apply to you with regard to the data that we process about you. Due diligence requires that we verify your identity before responding to a request. If we did not do this, there is a chance that we will provide your data to a complete stranger and that would be an invasion of your privacy.
If you do not agree with us processing your data, you can object to this. We will then weigh up your interest and the importance of processing your data. If we are unable to comply with your request, we will inform you of the reasons for this. We will always grant an objection to the use of your data for (direct) marketing.
