Special and/or sensitive personal information that we process
Our website and/or service does not have the intention of collecting information about website visitors who are under 16 years of age, unless they have permission from their parents or tutors. However, we cannot check whether a visitor is over 16. We advise parents to be involved in the online activities of their children in order to prevent information being collected about children without their parents’ consent. If you are convinced that we have collected personal information about a minor without this consent, please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org and we will delete it.
What our purpose in and basis for processing personal information is
KMWE Group processes your personal information for the following purposes:
- In order to deliver goods and services to you
- In order to be able to call or email you if necessary to be able to provide our services
- In order to process your payment
- In order to send you our newsletter and/or brochure
- In order to keep you informed of our services and products
- KMWE Group analyses your behaviour on the website in order to improve the website and to better adjust our products and services to your preferences.
- KMWE Group also processes personal information if we are legally required to do so, for instance information that we need to file our tax return.
We process personal information on the basis of consent, contract or legal obligation as described below.
The six legal bases are:
- Consent: The data subject has consented to processing of his/her personal information for one or more specific purposes.
- Contractual: Processing is necessary in relation to a contract in which the data subject is a party, or in order to take measures before entering into a contract at the request of the data subject.
- Legal obligation: Processing is necessary for the controller to comply with a legal obligation.
- Vital interests: Processing is necessary to protect the vital interests of the data subject or those of another natural person.
- Public tasks: Processing is necessary to perform a task in the public interest or a task in the framework of the exercise of official authority assigned to the controller.
- Legitimate interest: Processing is necessary to represent the legitimate interests of the controller or of a third party, except when the interests or the bases and the fundamental freedoms of the data subject which require protection of personal information weigh more heavily than those interests, particularly when the data subject is a child.
KMWE Group does not use automated processing to make decisions about matters which could have (considerable) consequences for persons. We are talking here about decisions which are made by computer programmes or systems, without a person (for instance an KMWE Group staff member) being involved.
How long we store personal information
KMWE Group does not store your personal information any longer than is strictly necessary for the purposes described above for which your information was collected. We will keep the information for a retention period of 5 years and after this we will ask you for it again.
Sharing personal information with third parties
KMWE Group will not sell your information to third parties and will only provide it if necessary to execute our contract with you or to comply with a legal obligation such as for instance reporting criminal offences. Companies that process your information for us have signed a processing agreement to ensure the same level of security and confidentiality of your information. KMWE Group remains responsible for such processing.
