At EBVBA MACHIAVELLI we value your privacy.
We respect and protect your privacy and find it important that you should feel at ease on our website, app and during the provision of our services. We therefore wish to inform you in an open and transparent manner about the use of your personal data.
Through that personal data we have the possibility of identifying you as a natural person. You are identifiable once we can make a direct or indirect connection between one or more items of personal data and you as a natural person. This is really necessary for our services.
We undertake to collect your personal data only within the limits of the law and use it in accordance with GDP (Regulation 2016/679).
2. Who has your personal data?
EBVBA MACHIAVELLI is ‘controller’ in the sense of the GDPR. More specifically, this means that we determine only what personal data to collect, the purposes for which we collect that personal data and the means by which we will collect that personal data.
As controller we are free to engage so-called ‘data processors’. A processor is a natural person or legal person who, or that, processes personal data at the request or on behalf of the controller. The processor always acts according to the controller's instructions.
EBVBA MACHIAVELLI engages the following categories of processors:
Under the GDPR all the above processors are obliged to guarantee the security and confidentiality of your personal data. A processing contract is concluded with all our processors.
3. What data do we collect?
We will only process the personal data that we actually need in order to attain the objectives for which we process it (see also Article 4).
We process the following categories of personal data:
We collect this personal data when you make use of our website or app, or when you make use of our services. Other personal data can be collected later, for example, in connection with invoicing. How much, how often and precisely what data we collect will depend on the professional relation that we form with you as client.
4. Why do we need your personal data?
We collect your personal data so as to be able to offer you the optimum, safe and personal user experience. The more intensively you use our website and our services the more personal data we collect. We have the right not to run certain data processings temporarily or cancel them completely if your personal data is missing, incorrect or incomplete.
The processing of personal data is essential for the operation of our website and the related services.
We shall process your personal data exclusively for the following purposes:
When you visit our website we can also collect some data for statistical purposes. We need that data in order to optimize the use of our website. Think, for instance, of: probable place of consultation, day and time of day of consultation, which pages were visited. When you visit the website you agree to the collection of data for statistical purposes as described above.
You yourself always choose whether you share your personal data with us. That way you have a certain control. If certain personal data is incomplete or apparently incorrect we have the right to suspend temporarily or cancel permanently certain expected data processings.
5. Forwarding of personal data?
Your personal data is processed for internal use within EBVBA MACHIAVELLI. We can set your mind at rest: we will never sell, forward or communicate your personal data to any third party unless you have given us your express prior consent or if we are under a legal obligation to do so.
6. How long is personal data kept?
We keep your personal data for as long as it is necessary to attain the objectives set out in Article 3. We shall delete your personal data from our databank once we no longer need it to attain those objectives or if you validly assert your right of removal of your personal data.
7. What are your rights?
7.1. Guarantee of legitimate and safe processing
Your personal data is always processed for legitimate purposes, as explained in Article 3. It is collected and processed in an appropriate, relevant and proportional manner and is not kept any longer than is necessary for attaining the set objectives.
7.2. Right of inspection
If you prove your identity (e.g., by a copy of your identity card), we will gladly inform you of precisely what personal data we keep on you and what we do with that information. The right of inspection is free of charge.
7.3. Right of removal
You have the right to demand the removal of your personal data in the following cases:
Please note, however, that in certain cases we have no option but to keep your personal data for a certain length of time, even if you would perhaps rather see the full 100% deleted from our database. For instance, we are legally obliged to keep invoices for 7 years.
7.4. Right of correction
If the information that we have on you is incorrect or incomplete we can always correct it should you so request. Please inform us if certain personal data (e.g., your e-mail address or telephone number) is no longer up-to-date.
7.5. Right of limitation
In some cases you have the right to ask that we limit the processing of your personal data. This applies, for example, if there is a dispute concerning the accuracy of the data, if the data is necessary in connection with legal proceedings or during the time necessary for EBVBA MACHIAVELLI to establish that you may validly exercise your right of removal.
7.6. Right of objection
You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes, profiling purposes or purposes arising from our legitimate interests. We will then no longer process your personal data unless we can show that there are compelling legal reasons that must be accorded precedence over your right to objection.
7.7. Right of transferability of data
You have the right to receive the personal data that you share with us in a digitally readable standard format. You may also transfer that personal data yourself or make arrangement for us to send it on to another processor, unless this is technically impossible.
7.8. Right of withdrawal of consent
You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, for example, if you gave that consent for direct marketing or profiling purposes.
