With regard to the handling of your personal data, we are ‘responsible’ in the sense of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR, Algemene Verordening Gegevensbescherming, AVG).

We are responsible that your personal data will be processed in a proper and careful manner in accordance with the AVG. This privacy policy is applicable to all our services and agreements. By using our website or entering into an agreement you declare to accept our privacy policy.

Which personal data are being processed?
Personal data are all data providing information about an identifiable natural person. We use and process, among other things, your name, address, telephone number, email address, bank details, birth date, bidding history, and your buying- and/or selling history. We require these personal data in order to be able to contact you and to fulfil the agreements made with you. In case you are not willing to supply your personal data, we will not be able to enter into an agreement with you. We may use your personal data to send you informative or commercial massages related to our company. On our website we may be able to monitor your surfing behaviour. In our auction house we use permanent camera supervision to prevent theft and to protect our customers and employees.

How do we use your personal data?

Fulfil agreements
We process these data to be able to fulfil purchases, sales, or other orders. We may share these data with third parties, such as a delivery service, if this is necessary to fulfil the agreement. We require these persons to handle these data with confidentiality and only for the purpose with which we share your personal data with them.

Camera images
We may employ visible and invisible camera supervision in order to protect our property, our customers and our employees. In case of wrongs we will share these images with the police, the judicial authorities, and third parties, in line with the legislation and the agreements with the Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens.
