Purpose of the processing of data

General purpose of the processing of data

We only use your data for the purpose of providing our services. This means that the purpose of the processing is always directly related to the order you give. If you share data with us and we use this data to contact you at a later date - other than at your request - we will ask you for explicit permission to do so. Your data will not be shared with third parties other than to comply with accounting and other administrative obligations. These third parties have all been kept confidential on the basis of the agreement between them and us or an oath or legal obligation.

Automatically collected data

Data that is automatically collected by our website is processed for the purpose of further improving our services. These data (e.g. your IP address, web browser and operating system) are not personal data.

Cooperation in tax and criminal investigations

In appropriate cases, The Hair Growth Specialist may be obliged to share your information in connection with governmental tax or criminal investigations by the authorities. In such a case, we will be forced to share your data, but we will oppose it within the limits of the law.

Storage Periods

We keep your information as long as you are our client. This means that we keep your customer profile until you indicate that you no longer wish to use our services. If you indicate this to us, we will also regard it as a request to be forgotten. Based on applicable legal obligations we must store invoices with your (personal) data, so we will store this data for as long as the legal period of 7 years after the purchase is in effect.

Your rights

On the basis of the applicable Dutch and European legislation, you as a data subject have certain rights with regard to the personal data that are processed by or on behalf of us. We will explain below what these rights are and how you can invoke them.

In the event that you wish to receive the data at another email address or for example by post, we will ask you to provide proof of identity. We keep records of completed requests; in the event of a request to forget, we administer anonymized data. You will receive all transcripts and copies of data in the machine-readable data format that we use within our systems.

You have the right to file a complaint with the Data Protection Authority at any time if you suspect that we are using your personal data in the wrong way.
