We are Equitom BV residing at Venusbergstraat 1 3560 Lummen Belgium with company registration number 0891.645.378 .
We care about your privacy and every time we deal with your personal data we do so in accordance with the provisions of the general data protection regulation and the national law relating to the processing of personal data.
When processing your personal data we are in most cases the "data controller". This means that we determine the purpose and means of the processing.
Personal data, or personal information, means any information about an individual from which that person can be identified. It does not include data where the identity has been removed (anonymous data). We try to collect as little personal information as possible in order to achieve our goals.
We comply with data protection laws which require that the personal information we process about you must be:
More specifically we will collect any or all of the following data elements :
We rely on you to provide us with correct data. If the data changes, we invite you to let us know, so we can keep the data up to date.
We process the data to allow us to deliver the services/products, and to continually improve the services/products available to you and adapt them to your needs. More specifically we perform the below processing:
In the above processing we are the data controller.
Where you provided consent, you have the right to revoke it. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.
In case you object to the processing of your data, please contact us so we can evaluate together if a contractual relationship is possible and a continuation of the use of our services is possible.
We also handle supplier data. When we collect, process and store supplier data, we want to make sure we only collect, process and store data we really need and are entitled to handle in this way.
In dealing with our suppliers we typically collect, process and store the name, work email and work phone of the person(s) interacting with us. We also collect, process and store the VAT number of our suppliers. If we provide parking space or access to our business area to suppliers' vehicles, we might collect, process and store the licence plate number and timing of the visit for purposes of organisation and security. Our security measures are functionally and technically in line with industry best practices. We retain the information during the legal period and/or period relevant for legal action.
The specific nature of our relationship makes it unlikely that we will process other people's personal data on your behalf. In the exceptional case that this nevertheless occurs, we are the processor and you are the controller. We will then carry out your instructions for the processing, possible subcontracting, the fate of the data at the end of the agreement and the possible transfer of data. We will therefore take the necessary security measures and assist you in fulfilling your obligations under the GDPR.
In order to provide certain services or products we might work with third parties such as IT partners, insurance partners, accounting partners, legal advisors. More specifically we reserve the right to transfer your personal data to our partners.
These third parties will generally act as data processor. Please do note that social media platforms, commerce platforms and structural sales partners are often regarded as joint controllers.
In case you object to the transfer of your data, please contact us so we can evaluate together if a contractual relation is possible and a continuation of the use of our services is possible.
Please do note that we may be required by law to process certain data and, as the case may be, to transmit them to the relevant authorities. As this is a legal obligation you can not object this transfer.
We undertake to keep your personal data secure & confidential and have established security procedures to avoid any loss, abuse or alteration to this personal data in line with industry best practices.
