Data Protection Notice
Purposes of the processing
Gert Taeymans BV collects and processes customers’ personal data for customer and order management (customer administration, order / delivery follow-up, invoicing, solvency follow-up, profiling and the sending of marketing and personalised advertising).
Legal foundation for the processing
Personal data is processed based on several provisions of Article 6.1.
(a) consent, which you can revoke at any time,
(b) required for the implementation of an agreement between you and Gert Taeymans BV, eg. when you enter into a contract with us,
(c) required to satisfy a legal obligation
(f) (required for the protection of our legitimate interest in entrepreneurship)] of the General Data Protection Regulation. An actual data item may be subject to multiple provisions.
[Insofar as the processing of personal data takes place based on Article 6.1. a) (consent), customers always have the right to withdraw the given consent.]
Transfer to third parties
If required to achieve the set purposes, your personal data will be shared with other companies within the European Economic Area, which are linked directly or indirectly with Gert Taeymans BV or with any other partner of Gert Taeymans BV
Gert Taeymans BV guarantees that these recipients will take the necessary technical and organisational measures for the protection of personal data.
Third party categories that are subject to this provision are:
Software Engineering (when you order websites or custom development with us)
Social Media (only as part of Social Media Marketing contracted services by you)
Due to the ECJ striking down the EU-US Privacy Shield agreement, this leaves us with a open gap. The resulting implications and actions to take are not yet clear. You must be aware that one can argue that any data transfer from the EU towards the US is now in breach of the law. Other argue that necessary transfers are still allowed, whithout however defining, as far as we know, what "necessary" actually means. Gert taeymans BV is investigating what this exactly means fo you, our user, and us as a company. This website runs on servers within the EU. We also closely follow the opinions by the scholars and our regulator.
Personal data processed for customer management will be stored for the time necessary to satisfy legal requirements (in terms of bookkeeping, among others).
Right to inspection, improvement, deletion, limitation, objection and transferability of personal data
You have at all times the right to inspect your personal data and can have it improved should it be incorrect or incomplete, have it removed, limit its processing an object to the processing of their personal data based on Article 6.1 (f), including profiling based on said provisions. Any personal data however that is needed for the legal processing of your order cannot be removed after you placed an order, as we need to keep it for legal purposes.
Furthermore, you are entitled to obtain a copy of your personal data and to have said personal data forwarded to another company.
You are entitled to object free of charge to the processing of any processing of their personal data aimed at direct marketing.
