About data processing
Below you can read how we process your data, where we store it or have it stored, which security techniques we use and who has access to this data.
Purpose of data processing
General purpose of data processing
We use your data exclusively for the purpose of providing our services. This means that the purpose of the processing is always directly related to the order you give. We do not use your data for (targeted) marketing. If you share data with us and we use this data to contact you at a later time – other than at your request – we’ll ask for your explicit permission. Your data will not be shared with third parties other than to comply with accounting and other administrative obligations. These third parties are all bound to secrecy on the basis of the agreement between them and us or an oath or legal obligation.
Automatically collected data
Data that is automatically collected by our website is processed with the aim of further improving our services. This data (for example your IP address, web browser and operating system) is not personal data.
Participation in tax and criminal investigations
Where appropriate, European Auto Commerce may be required to share your data in connection with government tax or criminal investigations on the basis of a legal obligation. In such a case we have no choice but to share your data, but we’ll oppose this within the possibilities offered to us by the law.
How long do we keep personal data?
European Auto Commerce does not store your personal data longer than is strictly necessary to fulfil the purpose for which your data is collected.
Sharing personal data with third parties
European Auto Commerce only provides personal data to third parties if this is necessary for the execution of our agreement with you or to comply with a legal obligation.
What personal data do we process?
European Auto Commerce processes your personal data because you make use of our services and/or because you provide the data to us yourself. Below you’ll find an overview of the personal data we process:
– Telephone number
– E-mail address
– IP address
Unique and/or sensitive personal data that we process
Our website and/or service has no intention of collecting information about website visitors under the age of 16. Unless they have permission from their parent or guardian. However, we cannot check whether a visitor is older than 16. We therefore recommend that parents monitor the online activities of their children, in order to prevent data about children from being collected without parental consent. If you believe that we have collected personal information about a minor without this permission, please contact us at email@example.com and we’ll delete this information.
Access, modify or delete data
You have the right to access, correct or delete your personal data. In addition, you have the right to withdraw your consent for the data processing or to object to the processing of your personal data by European Auto Commerce. You also have the right to data portability. This means that you can submit a request to us to send your personal data in a computer file to you or to another organisation named by you. You can send a request for access, correction, deletion, transfer of your personal data, a request to withdraw your consent or an objection to the processing of your personal data to firstname.lastname@example.org . To ensure that the request for access was made by you, we ask that you send a copy of your ID along with the request. Make sure that you blank out your passport photo, MRZ (machine readable zone, the strip with numbers at the bottom of the passport), passport number and citizen service number (BSN) on this copy. This is to protect your privacy. We’ll respond to your request as soon as possible, but in any case within four weeks. European Auto Commerce would also like to point out that you have the option to file a complaint with the national supervisory authority, the Dutch Data Protection Authority. You can do this via the following link:
