Why do we process personal data

Your personal data are processed by Diam Arts nv for the following purposes and on legal grounds. We also mention during which period the information must necessarily be processed in order to achieve this purpose:

  • To participate in the activities such as the sale of jewellery by Diam Arts nv (execution of agreement, 7 years) which includes among others the following matters: contact the customer, conclude sale with customer, quotes, repairs or adjustments (1 month), returns, down payment, certificates, insurance certificates, guarantee certificates, gift vouchers (1 year), payments;
  • To send newsletters, promotions and invitations (with permission of person involved, 5 years after last visit).

For the aforementioned purposes, we may request (and store / collect / process) the following personal data from you:

  • Personal identity details: name, first name, address, phone number, e-mail;
  • Bank data: bank account number and the transactions relating to the commercial relation with Diam Arts nv;
  • Metadata relating to transactions such as date and place.

We use the collected data only for the purposes for which we obtained them.

Sharing with third parties

We can share the data you give us with third parties if this is necessary for the execution of the aforementioned purposes. We use for example a third party for:

  • providing an internet environment (web hosting);
  • providing an IT infrastructure (including IT network,…);
  • providing (and distributing) newsletters and invitations.

We never share personal data with other parties with which we have not concluded a processor agreement.

With these parties (processors) we will of course make the necessary arrangements to ensure the security of your personal data.

Furthermore, we will not pass on the information you provide on to third parties (other parties provide), unless required and permitted by law. An example thereof is that the police may request (personal) data in the context of an investigation. In such a case, we must cooperate and are therefore obliged to provide this information.

We can also share personal data with a third party if you give us permission (in writing) for this. You have the right to revoke this permission at any time, without this affecting the lawfulness of the processing before the permission was revoked.

We do not share personal data with parties located outside the EU.

Minors

We only process personal data of minors (persons under the age of 16) if written permission was given by the parent or legal representative.

Storage period

Diam Arts nv does not store personal data longer than necessary for the purpose for which they were provided or than required by law. The storage periods are listed together with the purpose of processing. This allows us to process information not longer than necessary.

  • All persons who are in a position to access your data on behalf of Diam Arts nv, are obliged to respect their confidentiality.
  • We use a policy of username and password on all our systems;
  • We pseudonymise and ensure encryption of personal data if there is a reason to do so;
  • We make back-ups of personal data so that we can recover them in the event of physical or technical incidents;
