Collecting and using the personal data of customers, suppliers and other contractors

As of May 25, 2018 the General data protection Regulation (GDPR) will be effective. This means that from that date the same regulations apply throughout the European Union (EU).

This statement informs you of our policies regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Information we receive from (potential) customers as well as companies from whom we acquire goods and/or services in order to establish and execute any agreements we make with you.

If you are a (potential) customer, we will use your data to send you a quote, determine which specifications or wishes certain items or services must meet, deliver goods, perform activities, send invoices and smoothly and efficiently communicate with you about the execution of established agreements.

If you are a (potential) supplier or other contractor, your personal data will also be needed to establish and execute agreements. During the procurement process, it is needed to show you which specifications or wishes certain items or services must meet, send an invitation to tender, assign an order, pay your invoices and smoothly and efficiently communicate with you about other aspects of the agreement.

You are not obligated to supply your personal data. However, it may not be possible to perform the above mentioned activities if you do not supply (sufficient) personal data.   

 

Direct marketing

If you have given us permission to do so, we will store and use the personal data you supply to us, to personally inform you via e-mail about existing and new products and services and to make special offers. Every time we send you a promotional e-mail, you have the opportunity to tell us that you no longer wish to receive such emails. This can be done using the ‘unsubscribe’ link at the bottom of the email.    

 

Transfer to third parties

When executing agreements we have established with you, we may need to supply your personal data to parties that supply components, materials and products or perform activities within the concerned agreements.

 

Storage period for personal data

If you requested a quote from us, but decided not to become a customer, we will delete your data within a year of final contact (at the latest). If we received a quote from you, and decided not to become a customer, your personal data will also be deleted within a year of final contact (at the latest). In case you become our customer, or our supplier, we will keep your data for a period of seven years after the end of the financial year in which the agreement with you was fully executed. This seven-year period is consistent with the period for which records must be kept for the Dutch Tax Authority. We will delete your personal data once this period comes to an end.

 

Your rights

You have the right to request access to your personal data. Should it be necessary, you can also ask us to supplement your personal data or correct inaccuracies. In addition, you also have the right ask for your personal data to be deleted or for its use to be restricted. You can also object to the collection and use of your data or submit a complaint to the Personal Data Authority. Finally, you can ask us to supply a copy of your personal data or to transfer this data to another party. You can exercise your rights by contacting the board at ABC-Techniek B.V. Naturally, you can also contact us for questions or more information about the collection and use of your personal data.
