Where we need to collect personal data by law, or under the terms of a contract we have with you and you fail to provide that data when requested, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with you (for example, to provide you with goods or services). In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service you have with us but we will notify you if this is the case at the time.

How is your personal data collected?

Below each press release / newsletter you’ll find several options to adjust your preferences. You are able to cancel your subscription for separate mailing lists, you are able to cancel your subscription for all mailings and you’re able to update your personal information. For our contact database and newsletters we use Mark-I E-mail Marketing Software. Your personal data will be processed in accordance with their Privacy Policy and Terms. When registering for our newsletter, we require you to enter your first name, last name, e-mail address, country and field of work. You can also voluntarily enter your company name and job title.

We would like to inform you about our latest projects. We do this through newsletters by e-mail and via social media. If you unfollow our social media accounts, we can no longer share any new information with you. Use the unsubscribe option for the channels for which you have previously granted consent. In addition, our website and newsletter include buttons to be able to promote or share pages on social networks such as Facebook, Pinterest, LinkedIn, Instagram and Twitter. These buttons are created by means of a code that is provided by the social media network itself. This code will among other things install a cookie on your computer.

When registering for any of our other services such as our application program Ace you may be asked to enter personal information such as your name, e-mail address, company name, address, website and phone number and optionally additional information about yourself or your business in light of the project you’re applying for.

Businesscards / flyers
At events or during design weeks we receive several business cards and flyers with contact details. These contact details are saved into our CRM system. At the event these contacts are asked to subscribe to our newsletters and press releases. They can do so by entering a subscription form online. Afterwards they will receive a confirmation of their opt-in. Contacts who – for some reason - didn’t fill in the subscription form will receive a one-time mailing after the event with an option to subscribe and stay up to date. When they don’t subscribe they won’t receive any more mailings for our mailing system. We behold the rights to reach out to those contacts by a personal e-mail or phone call.

How we use your personal data and for which purpose
We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:

  • Where we need to perform the contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you.
  • Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
  • Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.

You are free to explore our websites without providing any personal information. We collect information from you when you subscribe to a newsletter, respond to a survey, fill out a form or enter information either on our websites or in our application program. We do this in order to be able to personalise your experience and deliver the type of content and offerings that you are most likely to be interested in. Collecting these data also allows us to better service you responding to your customer service requests and to administer promotions, surveys or other site features. Lastly we follow up with them after correspondence (live chat, email or phone inquiries).

You have the right to:

Request access to your personal data (commonly known as a "data subject access request"). This enables you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you and to check that we are lawfully processing it.

Request correction of the personal data that we hold about you. This enables you to have any incomplete or inaccurate data we hold about you corrected, though we may need to verify the accuracy of the new data you provide to us.

Request erasure of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to delete or remove personal data where there is no good reason for us continuing to process it. You also have the right to ask us to delete or remove your personal data where you have successfully exercised your right to object to processing (see below), where we may have processed your information unlawfully or where we are required to erase your personal data to comply with local law. Note, however, that we may not always be able to comply with your request of erasure for specific legal reasons which will be notified to you, if applicable, at the time of your request.

Object to processing of your personal data where we are relying on a legitimate interest (or those of a third party) and there is something about your particular situation which makes you want to object to processing on this ground as you feel it impacts on your fundamental rights and freedoms. You also have the right to object where we are processing your personal data for direct marketing purposes. In some cases, we may demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds to process your information which override your rights and freedoms.

Request restrictionof processing of your personal data. This enables you to ask us to suspend the processing of your personal data in the following scenarios: (a) if you want us to establish the data's accuracy; (b) where our use of the data is unlawful but you do not want us to erase it; (c) where you need us to hold the data even if we no longer require it as you need it to establish, exercise or defend legal claims; or (d) you have objected to our use of your data but we need to verify whether we have overriding legitimate grounds to use it.

Request the transfer of your personal data to you or to a third party. We will provide to you, or a third party you have chosen, your personal data in a structured, commonly used, machine-readable format. Note that this right only applies to automated information which you initially provided consent for us to use or where we used the information to perform a contract with you.

Withdraw consent at any time where we are relying on consent to process your personal data. However, this will not affect the lawfulness of any processing carried out before you withdraw your consent. If you withdraw your consent, we may not be able to provide certain products or services to you. We will advise you if this is the case at the time you withdraw your consent.
