Suiker Unie has therefore taken the necessary organizational and technical measures to protect your personal data and is in compliance with the requirements of the law with respect to the protection of personal data.

All data that is collected Suiker Unie in order to supply you with our products or services is processed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which has been in force across the EU since 25 May 2018.By means of this Privacy policy, we want to ensure that you clearly understand which personal data Suiker Unie processes and what it does with that data. This Privacy policy applies to all processing of your personal data by or on behalf of Suiker Unie and informs you about our privacy policy and the technical and organizational security measures taken to protect the personal data that we can collect when you use the Suiker Unie website or contact Suiker Unie at other times. We may adjust this Privacy policy from time to time. We publish any adjustments on this website, so please check this website regularly for the most recent version of our Privacy policy. 

1. Which personal data do we collect?
While you are using the Suiker Unie website, we may collect various items of your personal data. This data can be supplied by you – for example, if you sign up for a guided tour, or when you contact us for another reason. The data generated by your use of the website can also be collected automatically.
The personal data that we can collect from you includes: your first name and surname, your email address, your phone number, your mobile phone number, business data (such as your job, employer), and information about your visit to the website (such as IP address, provider, browser type, pages opened on the website, time of visit). We can also use cookies to obtain particular personal data from you. Cookies are text files that the browser ‘remembers' and saves on your computer at the website’s request. Using the cookie as a memory aid, the website can remember certain information so that it doesn’t have to be typed in a second time.
This website uses Google Analytics for web analysis. Google Analytics is a service of Google Inc. ('Google'). Google Analytics uses 'cookies'. The data about your use of this website (including your IP address) that is collected using the cookies is sent to a Google server in the US and stored there. Google complies with the privacy principles of the US 'Safe Harbor’ agreement and is registered with the 'Safe Harbor’ programme of the American Ministry of Trade. Google uses this data to analyse your use of the website, to draw up reports about the website activities for us and to supply us with other services related to website and internet use. Google can also pass on this data to third parties if that is legally required or if Google has commissioned those parties to process the data. Google will never link your IP address to other Google data. We have agreed that Google Analytics will delete the last part of the IP addresses of the visitors to our website. That means that we never have access to data that we can use to identify you. If you do not want information about your website visit to be passed on Google Analytics, you can install the 'Opt-out Browser Add-on' for your browser.
 
2. Why do we collect your personal data?
We mainly collect your personal data for the usual business operations of Suiker Unie so that we can respond to any questions, tips, or complaints you submit. Your data is also used for internal visitor analyses so that the website can be further optimized. Your personal data can also be necessary for our own internal administration and audits and to ensure compliance with statutory obligations. Your personal data is only used for the abovementioned objectives or for related purposes. Suiker Unie collects your personal data either with your permission or because that data is necessary for concluding an agreement, or because it has a reasonable interest as specified in this Privacy policy, or because it is legally obliged to do so.
 
3. Who may access your personal data? 
Your data is only used whenever necessary, and then only by employees designated to perform that task by Suiker Unie or other personnel for or on behalf of Suiker Unie. This also includes external parties, insofar as Suiker Unie has asked those parties to process that data for purposes defined by Suiker Unie. Suiker Unie obliges these external parties to take safety measures that are as strict as the measures that Suiker Unie takes to protect your personal data. Insofar as your personal data is passed on outside the European Economic Area ('EEA'), the legal requirements for such a data transfer are always complied with. Besides making the data available to the abovementioned parties, Suiker Unie will not make your personal data available to third parties unless this is necessary in order to comply with its statutory obligation.
 
4. How do we protect your personal data?
Suiker Unie is constantly taking appropriate technical and organizational safety measures to protect your personal data against unauthorized access, loss, deletion, disclosure, and improper use as well as to monitor the correctness and integrity of your personal data. These measures are regularly evaluated and updated, where necessary. 
 
5. For how long do we store your personal data?
Suiker Unie only stores your personal data for as long as is necessary for the purposes specified in this Privacy policy. If Suiker Unie processes personal data based on the fact that you have given us permission to do so, you can also withdraw that permission. Data that you give us with the aim of obtaining information from us is used once by us in order to process your information request. For statistical purposes, Suiker Unie can store your personal data for longer than is strictly necessary, but in that case Suiker Unie will take additional technical and organizational measures to guarantee the principal of minimal data processing.
 
6. How can you exercise your rights? 
If you have questions about the way your personal data is processed by Suiker Unie or if you wish to access the personal data that Suiker Unie has processed or have it deleted, corrected, or changed, or if you object to the processing of your data or, pending these requests, you wish to exercise your right of limitation, you can use the contact form on the website to contact Suiker Unie. In principle, Suiker Unie will respond in substance to your request within one month. 
If you have signed up for our mailing but no longer want to receive emails from us, you can use the link in the relevant mailing to unsubscribe.
If you have a complaint about the processing of personal data by or on behalf of Suiker Unie, you can submit a complaint to the Dutch Data Protection Authority.
