[Archive] Privacy and Cookie Statement


(Version 16-02-2018)

Privacy Company respects your privacy and handles your (personal) data carefully. With this privacy statement, we would like to inform you about what personal data we collect when you visit our website (www.privacycompany.eu/en) and how we process this data.

What data will be collected?

Privacy Company only collects the information necessary to show you the website and to contact us.

Like any website, we collect general information about visitors to our website. With regard to personal data, we only collect the IP address of your computer. In addition, we also keep general, non-identifiable information about, among other things, the time of subscription to the newsletter.

To subscribe to the newsletter, you provide us with the following information:

  • First and last name
  • E-mail address
  • IP address
  • Use of the data

We use the collected data only for the purposes for which we have obtained the data.

The general visitor information is used to show you the website and to analyse how many visitors our website gets, which web pages are visited and where the visitors come from. With this information, we can analyse and improve the website in a privacy-friendly manner. We use the personal data that we ask you to fill in to activate the “call me” option only to contact you by phone.

We also offer a newsletter to inform readers about privacy. Your e-mail address will only be added to the list of subscribers with explicit permission. Each newsletter contains a link that you can use to unsubscribe. The subscriber database for the newsletter will not be disclosed to third parties.

We use Mailerlite to distribute our newsletter. We collect your name and email address. When sending e-mails via Mailerlite, so-called “web beacons” are sent with it. These web beacons keep track of whether the email has been opened and whether the newsletter links are clicked on. This information is used for statistical purposes. Mailerlite may also collect data for its own purposes. See their privacy statement: https://www.mailerlite.com/privacy-policy

We do not in any way pass on the data collected by us to third parties, unless we are legally obliged to do so (for example, if the authorities request data from us).

Data retention period

The general visit data shall not be retained for more than one year. The information you have provided us with so that we can contact you by phone will be kept until the contact has taken place.

Data security

We have enabled encryption on our website to prevent misuse of the website’s data. Encryption makes the data traffic between you and the web servers unreadable, so that outsiders do not have access to it.

Inspection, correction and deletion of data

Pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you have the right to inspect your personal data on request and, if necessary, to amend it or have it deleted. You can find out how to contact us at the bottom of this privacy statement. To verify your identity, we ask you to include your IP address and a copy of your identity card or driver's license. We strongly recommend that you make your ID number and passport photo invisible, and that you add that it is a copy.


We put analytical cookies on your device to analyse the use of our website and how visitors have arrived at it. We use Piwik, the most privacy-friendly analytical tool currently available. The statistics generated with these cookies are used only to improve our website. The data will not be shared with third parties.

Because the impact of these analytical cookies on your privacy is very limited (see below for the privacy protection measures we have taken), you do not need to give permission for this and you can benefit from the use of these cookies.

We collect the following information via cookies:

  • IP address
  • User agents (used browser, operating system, language settings, type of device, etc.)
  • Pages visited and times of their visits
  • Links used to access our website
  • Links used on our website that refer to external websites
  • Downloaded files
  • Other information, such as screen resolution and the speed of the website

In order to protect your privacy even better, we have protected a number of data. We collect the following information via cookies:

The last two octets of each IP address are anonymised (we only see the following: 192.168. xxx. xxx. xxx).

Log files are not saved for longer than 120 days.

We support Do Not Track.

Tracking cookies are disabled, so that we will not track you when you go to other websites.

If you don't want us to place cookies on your device, we recommend that you turn on the “Do Not Track” function in your browser. Piwik will not follow you and will not place cookies. For more information about Do Not Track and how to turn it on in your browser, see the website All About Do Not Track.

Update privacy statement

We may change our privacy statement. We will announce this change on our website. Older versions of our privacy statement will be stored in our archive. Send us an email if you want to consult it.
