Terhills values the protection of your privacy. It respects and protects the privacy rights of individuals. Most information is available without you needing to provide any personal data. However, in some cases, you are asked for personal information. If so, Terhills will be transparent on how it processes personal data and ensures that all processing is carried out in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation and other applicable legislation.
This Privacy Statement is intended to inform you, as an individual, about the processing of personal data and explains your rights as a data subject. It is applicable to our customers, partners and website visitors for the personal data collected and processed by Terhills through this website and the related services. The information contained here is general in nature and in many cases more specific information is provided by other service providers and companies related to Terhills, in an agreement or in other contexts, and such specific information applies as a supplement to and, where applicable, amends the information set forth below.
Controller of personal data
Terhills, headquartered in Hasselt at Kempische steenweg 311 (4.01), is the data controller for the processing of any personal data for which it determines the purposes and means.
Processing of personal data
Personal data can be defined as any information that allows a natural person to be identified, directly or indirectly. Terhills collects and processes personal data only when permitted under the applicable legislation, and to provide the requested information or desired service. The processing of the personal data is restricted to the intended purpose.
- If you contact Terhills directly by e-mail, telephone, or letter, we will process your contact details and the content of this correspondence. We only use this information to sufficiently handle your question or message.
As stated above, Terhills only collects and processes personal data in accordance with the applicable legislation. This implies that Terhills only process your personal data based on the following grounds:
- Your consent.
- The necessity to execute a contract to which the data subject is party.
- To comply with legal obligations to which the controller is subject.
- To protect the vital interests of the data subject.
- To perform a task carried out in the public interest.
- When necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the controller.
Data and storage minimization
Terhills does not collect more data than is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which the personal data is collected. This means that it will only request personal data which is necessary for the requested information or desired service.
In addition, Terhills will not store information longer than is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which the personal data was collected.
Terhills takes technical and organizational security measures to prevent the destruction, loss, falsification, alteration, unauthorized access or disclosure of your personal data to third parties and any other unauthorized processing of these data.
We have made every effort to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of the information systems and services that process personal data. These measures include physical and operational security measures, access control, awareness raising and confidentiality clauses. All our employees and third parties engaged by us are obliged to respect the privacy and security of your data.
Disclosure to third parties
Terhills will refrain from disclosing or selling personal data of data subjects to third parties as well as publicly disclosing data subjects’ personal data, unless in the following specific cases:
- Personal data can be shared with third party service providers to which Therills outsourced certain processing activities. In any case, they are limited to processing your personal data in accordance with our instructions and if necessary, a data processing agreement will be concluded so they are obliged to comply with all obligations required by the applicable data protection legislation.
- If it is required by applicable laws or regulations.
Regarding international transfers of personal data and processing outside the European Economic Area (EEA), your data are only transferred to other branches from Terhills or parties in third countries, such as software providers and cloud or mailing services, when permitted under the applicable data protection legislation. We guarantee appropriate safeguards which ensure that your rights are also respected by the data recipient outside the EEA in accordance with an adequate level of data protection.
The rights of individuals
As stated before, Terhills respects and protects the privacy rights of individuals at all times. Terhills therefore maintains clear guidelines and routines for how an inquiry from a data subject will be handled. The rights as stated below, can be exercised free of charge, except when the controller considers the request to be manifestly unfounded or excessive.
As a data subject, you are entitled to request information free of charge from Terhills regarding the processing of your personal data. Upon your request, or on our own initiative, we will correct or erase any incorrect personal data and/or restrict the processing of such data. In addition, you are entitled to request that your personal data will not be processed for direct marketing purposes. You also have the right to object to any processing Terhills carries out based upon a weighing of interests as the legal basis. In certain circumstances you also have a right to request that personal data you have provided Terhills are given to you in a digitally readable format.
If Terhills believes that the processing nonetheless needs to be carried out, it is Terhills’s obligation to prove that there are interests which override the interests of the data subject.
If you have questions concerning the processing of your personal data or the exercise of your rights, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org or at Kempische steenweg 311 bus 4.01, 3500 Hasselt.
