Which personal data do we process?
Personal data is data that says something about you or data that can be associated with you. Everything that can be done with your personal data, for example collecting, storing, using, passing on or deleting your data, is called 'processing' of personal data. We process personal data that you have provided to us, for example by creating an account on our website or by placing an order. These are contact details and other personal data. For example, your name, address, zip code, place of residence, telephone number, e-mail address, company name, date of birth and other information that is necessary for the provision of our services. This may 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 may also receive personal data from other parties.

For what purposes and on what grounds do we process your personal data?

We process your personal data if this is necessary for the execution of the agreement in which you have instructed us or when creating an account on our website. In addition, your contact details will be placed in our customer system and - if you have given us permission - they can be used to send newsletters, for example. Depending on the nature of your case, personal data other than your contact details may also be necessary. We may also process your personal data if we have a legitimate interest and do not disproportionately infringe on your privacy.
