Our vision on privacy
Who processes your personal data?
What personal data do we process?
Personal data are data that tell something about you or data that can be associated with you. Anything that can be done with your personal data, such as collecting, storing, using, transmitting, or deleting your data, is called the "processing" of personal data. We process personal data that you provide to us yourself by, for example, creating an account on our website. These are contact details and other personal data. For example, your name, address, postal code, place of residence, telephone number, email address, company name, date of birth, and other information that is necessary for our services. These can also be personal data that we obtain from other sources, such as personal data from the Trade Register of the Chamber of Commerce, the Land Registry, and personal data that are available on public (business) websites. We can also receive personal data about you from counterparties.
For what purposes and on what basis do we process your personal data?
In order to carry out our activities properly, we need your personal data and we must process it as well. We process your personal data when it is necessary to perform the agreement in which you have instructed us or when creating an account on our website. In addition, your contact details are placed in our customer system and can be used – if you have given us permission – for sending newsletters, for example. Depending on whether you are a business, other personal data than your contact details may be necessary. We may also process your personal data when we have a legitimate interest and do not make an unreasonable infringement on your privacy.
What types of cookies do we use?
We only use functional and analytical cookies that do not infringe on your privacy. A cookie is a small text file that is stored on your computer, laptop, tablet or smartphone when you first visit this website. The functional cookies we use are necessary for the technical operation of our website and your own ease of use. The cookies ensure that the website works properly and remember, for example, your preference settings.
In addition, we use analytical cookies from Google Analytics. This allows us to analyze the behavior of visitors to our website. This gives us the ability to analyze the website. All information we collect through Google Analytics is anonymized and cannot be traced back to you. For more information on what Google does with the collected data, please refer to the privacy statements of Google. This statement may change regularly.
You can also opt out of cookies by setting your internet browser to no longer store cookies. In addition, you can also delete all information previously stored via the settings of your browser.
How do we handle your personal data?
We have taken measures to secure your personal data and prevent abuse. For example, we ensure that the system in which we store your personal data is secure. We do this through two-step verification. Our passwords are always automatically generated and consist of at least 16 characters (numbers, capital letters, and symbols).
How long do we keep your personal data?
We are very careful to ensure that all your data is carefully stored and protected. We do not keep your data longer than necessary for the purpose for which it was processed. We adhere to the legal retention periods. Customer files containing personal data are kept for a maximum of 10 years after the assignment has ended, unless there are reasons to keep this file longer.
Do we share your personal data with third parties?
In principle, we do not share your personal data with third parties. However, sometimes it may be necessary to share your personal data with third parties. For example, it may be necessary to share your personal data with judicial authorities or with a counterparty. Additionally, it may be necessary to share your personal data to enter into an agreement or notarial deed. Data can also be shared with third parties and contractors that we have engaged, such as a bailiff. Furthermore, there may be legal obligations requiring us to disclose your personal data to third parties. If a court order requires us to provide personal data to third parties, we will have to comply. Your personal data will not be shared with third parties for commercial purposes.
Viewing or modifying your personal data?
Do you want to know which personal data we have recorded about you? You can request an overview of the personal data that is being processed about you from us. If you think that your personal data has been processed incorrectly or incompletely, or if you think that certain personal data does not need to be processed, you can submit a request for modification, addition, or removal to us. Furthermore, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data and you have the right to data portability. Additionally, you have the right to revoke consent granted for the processing of your personal data. This is, for example, the case when receiving our newsletter. When you send us such a request, we will provide you with information about the actions we have taken as soon as possible, but in any case within 4 weeks of receiving your request.
For questions or complaints about the processing of personal data, you can send an email to email@example.com or direct your written requests to:
