Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service offered by Google Inc. (“Google”). Google Analytics uses cookies to help the website analyse how users use the site. The data are important in helping Nedmag optimise the website. The anonymous information generated by the cookie regarding your use of the website will be transferred to and stored by Google on servers in the United States. By using this website, you give permission for Google to process the information described above for the purposes described above.

Storing your personal data 

In storing personal data, our starting point is that we do not store data for longer than necessary for the purpose for which the data were processed. We observe any existing statutory retention periods. 

When registering a complaint or damage, a storage term of up to 20 years applies to archiving the registered types of complaints and damage and where these took place. We aim to use this to improve our working method and service provision. When a reason for contact (damage claim, complaint, sponsorship) has been concluded, data will be minimised before being archived. 

The provision of personal data to third parties

Nedmag does not provide personal data to third parties.

Securing your personal data 

We use physical, administrative, organisational and technological measures to ensure effective arrangement of your personal data. Only authorised employees have access to your data and registered data are processed carefully and treated in strictest confidence. 

Your rights

You are entitled to inspect, change or delete personal data processed by Nedmag, if these data are not or are no longer correct, or if the processing is not or is no longer legitimate. You are also entitled to withdraw permission that you once gave. We will then stop processing your data. The withdrawal of permission does not take place with retroactive effect. 

Under certain conditions, you also have the right to restrict the processing of your data. In brief, this means that Nedmag places a temporary “freeze” on the processing of your data. You can invoke this right in four situations: (1) pending the evaluation of a correction request, (2) if data actually should have been deleted but you did not want this deletion, (3) if Nedmag no longer needs the data while you do need the data to prepare or conduct legal action and (4) in anticipation of the evaluation of an objection. 

Exercising these rights is free of charge for you, with the exception of misuse. You can exercise these rights by contacting us via the contact details below. 

Identification

We may request further proof of identity when responding to all questions/requests. We do this to ensure that we do not provide personal data to the wrong party or introduce an incorrect amendment when processing personal data. 

Contact person

If you have any questions, requests or complaints regarding the processing of your personal data, please contact Nedmag’s Data Protection Officer on telephone +31 (0)598-651328 or via e-mail h.smit@nedmag.nl.

Date and modifications to the privacy statement
