Garden Trade International BV processes your personal data because you make use of our services and/or our website and/or because you provide these to us yourself in the context of, for example, a request for information or a job application. We do not collect data from other sources. The personal data that we collect and process from you may include the following:
We also collect information by means of cookies (see further in this privacy statement).
The exact data we process from you will depend on the capacity in which you contact us and the nature of the relationship you enter into with us.
We do not process any special categories of personal data in the sense of article 9 of the GDPR. We do not intend to collect data on persons under the age of 16 unless they have the consent of their parents or guardian. However, as the relationship with our website visitors and customers is in most cases remote, we cannot verify whether the person concerned is over 16 years of age. We therefore recommend that parents are involved in their children's online activities in order to prevent the collection of child data without parental consent. If you believe that we have collected personal information about a minor without that consent, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will delete that information immediately.
Garden Trade International BV collects and processes your personal data for the following purposes:
The exact purposes will depend on the capacity in which you contact us and the nature of the relationship you enter into with us. In many cases, providing personal data will be a condition for entering into an agreement.
Garden Trade International BV does not take decisions on the basis of automated processing on matters that may have (significant) consequences for individuals. These are decisions made by computer programs or systems, without the intervention of a human being (for example an employee of Garden Trade International BV). Garden Trade International BV uses the following computer programs or systems:
Both systems are linked to each other and exchange data with the aim of making the processes as efficient and qualitative as possible, but are always controlled by human intervention.
Garden Trade International BV stores your personal data no longer than is strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which your data are collected. We apply a standard retention period of seven years for personal data, but this may be longer or shorter depending on the need for a particular processing or in application of a statutory provision.
Garden Trade International BV does not sell your data to third parties and only provides them if this is necessary in the context of the aforementioned purposes or to comply with a legal obligation. Except in the latter case, we conclude a processing agreement with companies that process your data on our behalf in order to ensure the same level of security and confidentiality of your data. Garden Trade International BV remains responsible for these processing operations.
Under certain conditions, you have the right to view, correct or delete your personal data. In addition, also under certain conditions, you have the right to withdraw your possible consent for the data processing or to object to the processing of your personal data by Garden Trade International BV and you have the right to data transfer. This means that you can submit a request to us to send the personal data we have in our possession in a computer file to you or another organization mentioned by you. You can send a request for inspection, correction, deletion, transferring of your personal data or for the withdrawal of your consent or objection to the processing of your personal data to email@example.com. To ensure that the request has been made by you, we ask you to enclose a copy of your proof of identity with the request. We will respond to your request as soon as possible, but at the latest within four weeks.
Garden Trade International BV takes the protection of your data seriously and takes appropriate measures to prevent misuse, loss, unauthorised access, unwanted disclosure and unauthorised modification. Unfortunately, no data transmission over the Internet or for any data storage system can be guaranteed to be 100% secure. If you have the impression that your data is not properly secured or there are indications of misuse, please contact our customer service department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We reserve the right to make changes at any time to reflect changes in our business needs and legal obligations. To inform you of the changes, we will post updates on our website.
If you are not satisfied with the way in which we process your personal data and if you believe that the problem cannot be solved by contacting us, Garden Trade International BV would also like to point out that you have the option of submitting a complaint to the national supervisory authority, the Data Protection Authority, Drukpersstraat 35, 1000 Brussels, +32 (0)2 274 48 00 or email@example.com.
