Purposes and legal bases
Launchdeck processes your personal information for these purposes:

- To improve the provided services
- To show personalized advertisements
- Connection with social media
- To prevent fraud and abuse

We use your personal data because it is necessary for the performance of our contract with you, because you gave your consent (cookies and newsletter) or because we have legitimate interests (newsletter to customers and analytics in order to inform you on and improve our business). Our legitimate commercial interests have very limited impact on your privacy. We send you the newsletter if you subscribed, so this processing is based on consent.
We attach great importance to the protection of your personal data and we have therefore implemented appropriate security measures, as required by the GDPR These measures will, for example, ensure your data is not lost or accessible by unauthorised individuals. Some of these measures are:
- An SSL Certificate has been installed on our server in order to encrypt sensitive information which is provided through our website (on, for example, online forms);
- Our IT systems are up-to-date and secure;
- We have a strict access policy, meaning that only authorised staff members and/or third parties have access to your personal data;
- We have agreements in place to ensure the safe processing of your personal data by third party associates.
Stored information will be adequately secured as far as state of the art allows this. Example: your password is encrypted so we, nor other parties, have access.
Your data is your data. We will only share your personal data with third party associates who play a role in fulfilling our agreement with you (for instance: e-mail marketing party of technical service provider), or if we have a legal obligation to do so. We have specific agreements in place with companies that process your data on our behalf or request. These data processing agreements comply with the GDPR, thus ensuring a uniform level of security and confidentiality of your data.
The majority of our third party associates are located within the European Union. For agreements we have entered into with third parties outside of the EU, we have implemented appropriate safeguards.
Launchdeck will only enter into agreements with parties who are validated by the European Commission as being compliant with data protection requirements for the transfer of personal data or with parties who have taken appropriate measures to ensure the security of your personal data in their on-site data processing methods.
Data retention period
We will only store your personal data for as long as necessary to meet the objective(s) for which the data was collected.
We will retain general contact information for as long as we need to be able to get in touch with you. If you are our customer, we will store the information for the duration of our business relationship.
When you have unsubscribed from the newsletter, your data will no longer be processed for this purpose.
We will retain data as required by law for the duration specified by that particular law (for tax purposes, for instance).
You have a number of rights with regard to all personal data that you disclose to us. You may, for instance, request to access your personal data and to correct, amend or delete that data or any inaccuracies.
Under certain circumstances you also have the right to request the transfer of your data and to object to the processing of your personal data. The former means you can file a request with us to electronically transfer the relevant personal data that we have stored in our system to you or to an organisation specified by you.
Requests to access, amend, delete or transfer your personal data or objections to the processing of that data can be sent to [email protected]. Please put in the subject line “Personal Data”.
Any request will be verified by us to make sure it originated from you. This means we might ask for a copy of your passport or ID card to be sent along with the request. When you do this, make sure to safeguard your privacy by blacking out the photo, the text in the MRZ (machine-readable zone at the bottom of your passport or ID card), the document number, as well as your BSN (Burger Service Nummer or citizen service number). We will deal with your request as swiftly as possible.
Please let us know if you have any complaints about the way we handle your privacy; we will gladly discuss the matter with you. Should you choose to file a complaint with the Dutch Data Protection Authority (Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens), you can do so here:
