2. Applicability of the General Data Protection Regulation
When processing data, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) or its Dutch equivalent - Algemene Verordening Gegevensbescherming or AVG - may be applicable. Hereinafter, this will be referred to as the AVG. The AVG is applicable to situations in which personal data is processed in a fully or partially automated manner, but also to the manual processing of personal data contained in a file or intended to be included in this.
Processing of your personal data is solely limited to only that data which is minimally required for the purposes for which it is processed;
Requesting your explicit consent if we require this for the processing of your personal data;
Having appropriate technological and organisational measures in place to ensure that your personal data is protected;
Not passing on personal data to other parties, unless this is necessary for the execution of the purposes for which said data is provided;
Informing you of the rights you have with regard to the processing of your personal data.
3. Which personal data do we process?
We process the personal data that you have provided to us, for example in the context of the supply of products and/or services to you, or that has been obtained by us because you have made use of our digital services, our website, have filled out a contact form or have subscribed to our newsletter or have indicated a preference for the kinds of information which you would like to receive from us.
The personal data which we process about you may include the following:
4. Processing purposes: For which reasons do we process personal data?
HTS Aqua uses the data that is processed for:
4.1 Business operations
Under Article 28 of the Dutch Wage Tax Act, HTS Aqua as an employer is obliged to include a copy or scan of the identity document of its employees in the payroll administration. A copy or scan of the identity document is made the moment an employee joins HTS Aqua. This enables us to demonstrate later that our employees have properly identified themselves and were legally in the Netherlands. In addition, the copies of the identity documents processed by us are used for inspections in the workplace by, for example, the Inspectorate SZW of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Employment.
4.2 Supply and improvement of products and services
Furthermore, HTS Aqua is a business-to-business company and therefore supplies products and services to companies rather than to consumers. We gather (personal) data that you have provided to us in the context of the supply of those products and services in order to inform you about and offer these products and services to you in the best possible manner. Furthermore, your personal data may also be used in the communication with customers and users of our digital services, for example for providing information about user accounts, security updates and product information.
4.3 Recruitment for HTS Aqua
We use personal data for recruitment on behalf of HTS Aqua and its group companies.
We may provide these items of personal data to these companies.

HTS Aqua considers the following activities as the granting of consent:
7. Verwerking van persoonsgegevens
We enter into a processor agreement with processors of personal data. We record this processing agreement in a processing register.
7.1 Processing register
Since HTS Aqua has no obligation to appoint a data protection officer, this has not been included in the processing register. Instead, HTS Aqua has included the roles of process owner and application manager in the processing register. In this respect, it is stipulated that the owner can never be the same person as an application manager, thus realising the “four eyes” principle. HTS Aqua has translated the purposes for which the personal data is processed into the process for which the personal data in question is used. This processing register also includes the retainment period and the location where the data is hosted: Netherlands (NL), EU or outside the EU.
8. Rights of data subjects
By law, every person can exercise certain rights with regard to his or her personal data. For example, you have the right to see, correct and delete personal data. You can also object to the use of your data or request that this use be restricted. In some cases, you can even request your data and transfer it to another party. Please contact us via by phone +31 (0)88 - 66 88 780or at email@example.com with any questions you may have in this respect.
9. Retention periods
We will retain your personal data for as long as this is necessary for the purpose for which we obtained the data, unless a legal retention period is in effect.
