The protection of personal data is very important to SteelTrace.
SteelTrace respects your privacy and ensures that your personal information is always treated confidentially and in accordance with currently applicable laws and regulations.
Personal data are data that relate to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more elements characteristic of his or her physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) does not apply to deceased persons, because according to the law these are no longer natural persons. When the data of a deceased person says something about another person (more specifically the next of kin), it may be personal data. Then they do not concern the deceased, but the other, living person.
The GDPR makes a distinction between ‘ordinary’ personal data and special categories of personal data. Special categories of personal data are data that are particularly sensitive by their nature. Specifically, it concerns: data revealing racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, genetic data, biometric data for the purpose of uniquely identifying a person, data on health and data relating to a person’s sexual behavior or sexual orientation. The processing of these special categories of personal data is prohibited, unless a specific exception applies or the data subject has given his or her explicit consent to the processing.
In addition to the special categories of personal data, personal data of a criminal nature are also so sensitive that there is a special regulation for this.
A national identification number is a unique number established by law. In the Netherlands, the best-known national identification number is the social security number (BSN). This may only be used for purposes prescribed by law.
This Privacy Statement applies to all persons for whom SteelTrace processes personal data:
SteelTrace takes appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect your personal data against loss, misuse, alteration or against any form of unlawful processing. Despite SteelTrace’s best efforts, however, security cannot be absolutely guaranteed against all threats. If you would like more information about the security of your personal data, we ask you to contact us.
SteelTrace does not share personal data with third parties, except as necessary for our legitimate professional and business needs, to carry out your requests, and/or as required or permitted by law or professional standards (such as: Third Party inspection bodies).
SteelTrace does not share personal data with third parties for commercial purposes and does not transfer personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA).
For the processing of your personal data, it may sometimes be necessary to engage other service providers (processors). SteelTrace requires the processor to undertake to process the data exclusively on behalf of SteelTrace, with due observance of SteelTrace’s instructions and to take appropriate security measures to keep the personal data strictly confidential, in accordance with the applicable laws and regulations. SteelTrace will conclude a processing agreement with these processors that meets the requirements of the GDPR.
There is no specific retention period for personal data on the basis of the GDPR, but it is not the intention to keep this data longer than necessary. SteelTrace does not store your personal data longer than is necessary to achieve the purposes stated in this Privacy Statement. When we no longer need your information, we will take all reasonable steps to remove it from our systems.
SteelTrace will respect your rights under applicable law and you can make various requests to us regarding your personal data. According to applicable law:
