Privacy Policy from Topvintage

1. First of all

Topvintage is firmly committed to safeguarding your privacy and that is why we take the protection of your personal data very seriously.  

Besides the fact that we of course comply with relevant laws and regulations, like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Dutch Telecommunications Act (Telecommunicatiewet) and other applicable laws and regulations, we also want to safeguard your data and be transparent about the data we process and for what purposes. This is accomplished by means of organisational and technical measures, by adhering to an internal privacy policy and by proper disclosure.  

In this privacy policy we’ll explain how this is done and what your rights as an affected party are.   

Topvintage will continue to develop and optimise her services. This may result in changes being made to the privacy policy from time to time. Therefore, Topvintage recommends that you consult the privacy policy on a regular basis. 

2. What is the GDPR?

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is a European regulation that prescribes which standards need to be observed by European companies when processing your personal data. Personal data means any data or information that relates to an individual who is or can be identified from that data. Processing is the term used for any operation or set of operations performed on personal data, such as collection and storage.
