Why do we collect this data?
We process personal data for a variety of reasons, each time processing only the data that are necessary for our purpose. With your consent, to the extent required, we collect personal data for the following specific purposes:
- To process your requests regarding our products and services.
If you visit our websites or contact our sales and promotional staff to collect or request information about our products and services or if you sign up for our newsletter, for example, we need your address details. We will use all the information we receive about you to provide you with the requested information in the manner you have indicated.
- To give you the best service.
We keep your data to help us improve our customer service. In order to design, maintain and support our products and services correctly, we need that data. This also allows us to contact you for the next step in our partnership or to ask for feedback on our services. If there are any technical problems or disruptions on our side, we must be able to inform you.
- To inform you about our products, services and activities.
We may use your data to inform you about existing and new products, services, special promotions, workshops, events, training courses, vacancies, etc., in order to carry out direct marketing or to create a profile about you so that we can inform you about matters we think may be of interest to you. We can do this either in writing, electronically or by telephone. We also use your data for the newsletters to which you have subscribed. You will only receive communication via email if you have given your explicit consent, provided that is required.
Who will manage your data?
All personal data is managed by Unil Lubricants NV.
In some cases we use anonymous, aggregated data for commercial purposes or for external reporting. These data can never be traced back to a particular person.
We will never sell or rent out your data to companies or persons that are not part of our company or our group. We consider your information to be confidential information.
How do we secure your data?
We protect your personal data and privacy to the fullest extent possible. Our employees are trained in handling confidential data correctly. We also employ specialists who are responsible for the security of our IT infrastructure. Moreover, we also use all kinds of technical measures to protect your personal data. Should a data breach occur with adverse consequences for your personal data, you will be notified personally in the circumstances provided for by law.
Access to your data, making corrections or having your data removed?
You have the right to access your data. You can ask us if we process any of your personal data; the purposes for which the data are processed; what categories of data we process; with which categories of third parties we share your personal information; the source of the processed data and the logic involved if we were to use automatic personal data processing
You can exercise your right of access by writing to the contact details below or sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. We have 30 days to answer your request. This period starts once we have received your written request and have all the information required to fulfil your request.
You also have the right to have any incomplete, incorrect, inappropriate or outdated personal data to be deleted or changed. In order to do this, please contact us via email or by post. If necessary, we will then change this data within the statutory deadlines. We would like to make you aware that once we have carried out your request, it may be the case that we can no longer offer you some services. It may also be the case that we cannot delete all the data you have requested us to delete, for example because we are legally obliged to retain data for a certain period of time. In order to keep your data up-to-date, please report any changes to us.
No direct marketing?
You always have the right, without giving any reason, to object to your personal data being used for direct marketing purposes. You can do this by contacting us via email or by post.
How long do we store your personal data?
We will ensure that appropriate organisational and technical measures are in place to protect personal data. We are not allowed to retain personal data for longer than is necessary to achieve the purpose for which we collect this data. The retention period can therefore vary per objective and can sometimes be very short. After the applicable retention periods have expired, personal data will be completely anonymised or deleted. We process user data up to a maximum of fifteen years after the last operational contact between us (this period corresponds to three oil changes on the machines with the longest drain intervals); for traffic data this is a maximum of one and a half years.
