Privacy Statement

Privacy Statement

Van Ameyde International and its subsidiaries respect your privacy. This Privacy Statement informs you of our privacy practices and of the choices you can make about the way your information is collected online and how that information is used.

1. Sites covered by this Privacy Statement

Van Ameyde is a multi-national organisation, with legal entities, business processes, management structures, and technical systems that cross borders. This Privacy Statement applies to all Van Ameyde owned websites and domains and the websites and domains of our wholly owned subsidiaries, hereinafter called: the “Van Ameyde Websites”. By using the Van Ameyde Websites, you consent to the following terms. 

Links to non-Van Ameyde Websites

The Van Ameyde Websites may provide links to third-party websites for your convenience and information. If you access those links, you will leave the Van Ameyde Websites. Van Ameyde does not control those sites nor their privacy practices, which may differ from Van Ameyde’s practices. We do not endorse or make any representations about third-party websites. The personal data you choose to provide to or that is collected by these third parties is not covered by the Van Ameyde Privacy Statement. We encourage you to review the privacy policy of any company before submitting your personal information. If you choose to visit a third-party’s site, please be aware that third-party’s privacy policy, and not this Privacy Statement, will govern your activities and any information you disclose while visiting the third-party’s website.

2. Collection of personal information

The information Van Ameyde collects, stores and analyses is used to improve the way we do business with our current and potential customers. If you choose to provide Van Ameyde with your e-mail address or other personally identifiable information, Van Ameyde will therefore only use it to understand your needs and interests and to serve you better.

In addition to the information you provide, Van Ameyde may also collect information during your visit to our websites through our Automatic Data Collection Tools, which include Web beacons, cookies, embedded Web links, and other commonly used information gathering tools. These tools collect certain standard information that your browser sends to our website such as your browser type and language, access times, and the address of the website from which you arrived at a Van Ameyde Website. These data however do not enable Van Ameyde to identify you.

These Automatic Data Collection Tools may also collect information about your Internet Protocol (IP) address, clickstream behaviour (i.e. the pages you view, the links you click, and other actions you take in connection with Van Ameyde Websites) and product information. However, your IP-address does not directly reveal your identity. Your IP-address merely reveals the name of your access provider or company network. Van Ameyde also uses some of these Automatic Data Collection Tools in connection with certain emails sent from Van Ameyde and therefore may collect information using these tools when you open the email or click on a link contained in the email.

3. How we use your information

The information Van Ameyde collects to understand your needs and interests helps us deliver a consistent and personalised experience. For example, Van Ameyde may use your information to 

  • assist you in completing a transaction or order;
  • communicate with you about products and services; 
  • provide service and support;
  • update you on new services and benefits;
  • provide personalised promotional offers;
  • select content to be communicated to you;
  • personalise some Van Ameyde websites; and
  • contact you for market research regarding Van Ameyde products or services.

Our (postal) mailings with information on new products and services or upcoming events will provide you with the possibility to notify us if you no longer wish to receive such mailings.

4. How we share your information

Van Ameyde will not sell, rent or lease your personal information to others. Van Ameyde shares personal information with companies working on our behalf and Van Ameyde owned business entities.

Van Ameyde retains service providers and suppliers to deliver complete products, services and customer solutions and to assist Van Ameyde with marketing and communication initiatives. Suppliers and service providers are required by contract to keep confidential the information received on behalf of Van Ameyde and may not use it for any purpose other than to carry out the services they are performing for Van Ameyde.

Circumstances may arise where, whether for strategic or other business reasons, Van Ameyde decides to sell, buy, merge or otherwise reorganize businesses in some countries. Such a transaction may involve the disclosure of personal information to prospective or actual purchasers, or the receipt of it from sellers. It is Van Ameyde’s practice to seek appropriate protection for information in these types of transactions.

Except as described in this Privacy Statement, Van Ameyde will not share the personal information you provide to Van Ameyde with any third parties without your permission, unless to: (i) respond to duly authorized information requests of governmental authorities; (ii) comply with any law, regulation, subpoena, or court order; (iii) help prevent fraud or to enforce or protect the rights and properties of Van Ameyde or its subsidiaries; or (iv) protect the personal safety of Van Ameyde employees and third parties on Van Ameyde property.

5. Access to and accuracy of your information

Van Ameyde strives to keep your personal information accurately recorded. We have implemented technology, management processes and policies to help maintain data accuracy. Van Ameyde provides individuals with reasonable access to personal information that they provided to Van Ameyde and the ability to review and correct it, as applicable. To protect your privacy and security, we will also take reasonable steps to verify your identity, such as requiring a password and user ID, before granting access to your data.

6. Keeping your information secure 

Van Ameyde takes seriously the trust you place in us. To prevent unauthorized access or disclosure, to maintain data accuracy, and to ensure the appropriate use of the information, Van Ameyde utilises appropriate physical, technical and administrative procedures to safeguard the information we collect.

7. Changes to this statement

Van Ameyde reserves the right to change this Privacy Statement, and will post any revisions on the Van Ameyde Websites. Your continued use of the Van Ameyde Websites will be subject to the then-current privacy statement.
