Personal Data Processing
We process personal data for a variety of reasons: we send out a newsletter, we sell the I amsterdam City Card, we receive information from job applicants and we collect data via our website. The data we process and the purpose for which we process it depends on the specific data processing operation. For information on the different data processing operations, we refer you to the relevant Process-specific Privacy Statement.
We see it as important to securely protect the personal data we process. We have therefore taken a variety of organisational and technical measures to protect personal data from misuse, loss and unauthorised access or processing.
In processing personal data, we abide by the principles of the GDPR. We process personal data only where there is a legal basis (such as a request for your permission or an agreement). We process data only where necessary, and we process no more data than needed.
Sharing Personal Data
In providing our services we sometimes cooperate with third parties, and in certain cases we share personal data with these organisations. When we share personal data with another organisation, we ensure that we have clear agreements with this party in accordance with legislation and regulations. We not only see it as important that we handle personal data correctly ourselves, but we also require it of third parties with which we work.
When we supply personal data to parties outside the European Economic Area (EEA), we ensure that we do so only to those that sufficiently guarantee personal data protection. We abide by the provisions of legislation and regulations.
The specific information on data processing includes information on whether we share your data with other parties.
Exercising your rights
On the basis of the legislation and regulations regarding personal data protection, you have a number of rights. You have the right to access any personal data we hold on you. In addition, you may submit a request to alter or delete your personal data, or to restrict our use of it.
If we process your personal data on the basis of your permission, you are also entitled to withdraw your permission. In this case we are obliged to stop processing your personal data. It is also possible for you to object to the processing of your personal data.
If you wish to exercise any of these rights, you should send a request to our DPO at [email protected]. On receipt of your email, we will send a confirmation, which will include the date by which we will inform you that we have complied with your request. Please bear in mind that the implementation of your request is not an automated process.
The submission of a request is free of charge. However, if your request is evidently groundless or excessive, we may opt not to handle it and/or to charge you a fee of €25 per request.
For more information on your rights regarding your personal data, we refer you to the website of the Dutch Data Protection Authority. This website also provides example letters that you can use to exercise your rights.
We see it as very important that your personal data is safe with us. However, if you encounter a flaw in our security or a data breach, we would be very grateful if you would inform us. Please send an email to [email protected]. You will automatically be sent the form ‘Melding Datalekken/Reporting Data Breaches’). We would ask you to return this form to us within 24 hours so that we can promptly activate our relevant procedure and meet our obligation to report data breaches.
