Privacy statement

Privacy-sensitive data or personal data is processed via DutchSmartshops.com. DutchSmartshops.com believes that careful handling of personal data is of great importance. Personal data is therefore also carefully processed and secured.

When processing personal data, we comply with the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation. This means, among other things, that we:

  • Clearly state for which purposes we process personal data;
  • Try to limit our collection of personal data to only the personal data necessary for legitimate purposes;
  • Ask you first for explicit permission to process your personal data in cases where your permission is required;
  • Take appropriate security measures to protect your personal data and also require the same from parties that process personal data on our behalf;
  • Respect your right to access, correct or delete your personal data.

We are responsible for data processing. In this privacy statement we explain which personal data we collect and use and for what purpose. We recommend that you read this statement carefully.

This privacy statement was last amended on August 4, 2022 and has version number 1.0.

Personal data we process
DutchSmartshops.com processes your personal data because you use our services and/or because you provide this data to us yourself.

Below you will find an overview of the personal data that we process:

  • Email address;
  • Other personal data that you actively provide yourself via, for example, our contact form.

This personal data is used to answer your contact requests that you have left with us via our contact form.

Special and/or sensitive personal data that we process
Our website and/or service does not intend to collect data about website visitors who are younger than 18 years of age. Unless they have parental or guardian permission. However, we cannot check whether a visitor is older than 18. We therefore advise parents to be involved in the online activities of their children, in order to prevent data about children being collected without parental consent. If you are convinced that we have collected personal information about a minor without permission, please contact us via our contact form and we will delete this information.

How long do we keep personal data
DutchSmartshops.com does not store your personal data longer than is strictly necessary to realize the purposes for which your data is collected. If your personal data is no longer necessary for these purposes, your personal data will be deleted immediately, unless a legally required retention period applies, in which case we adhere to that statutory retention period.

Sharing personal data with third parties
DutchSmartshops.com only provides to third parties and only if this is necessary for the execution of our agreement with you or to comply with a legal obligation.

You have the right to view, correct or delete your personal data. In addition, you have the right to withdraw your consent to the data processing or to object to the processing of your personal data by DutchSmartshops.com and you have the right to data portability. This means that you can submit a request to us to send the personal data we have about you in a computer file to you or another organization mentioned by you.

You can submit a request for access, correction, deletion, data transfer of your personal data or request for withdrawal of your consent or objection to the processing of your personal data to us via our contact form.
