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:
– Name
– 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 and we’ll delete this information.

Changes to the privacy policy
We reserve the right to change our privacy policy at any time. However, you’ll always find the most recent version on this page. We’ll inform you by e-mail if the new privacy policy has consequences for the way in which we process previously collected data regarding you.
