Introduction

We understand that privacy is an important issue for visitors to Our Site, and Your privacy is equally important to Us. This Policy, which is not part of Our page Terms and Conditions, covers the treatment of the personal data We collect when You visit the Site. This Policy is drawn up in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

Personal Data

What are Your rights?

  • The right to access. You have the right to obtain information about Our processing and purpose of Our processing of Your personal data and a copy of Your personal data that We store.
  • The right to rectify Your data. You have the right to request that We update Your personal data if it is inaccurate or incomplete.
  • The right to request data erasure. You have the right to have Your personal information erased from Our files whenever Your data is no longer necessary for any purpose such as the purpose for which it was collected. You can also use Your right to request data erasure whenever You withdraw Your consent and no other legal basis for the processing of Your data exists or whenever Your fundamental rights to data privacy and protection outweigh Our legitimate interest in continuing Our processing. The erasure of Your data is not unconditional, and the request can be refused for operational, legal and business reasons. This can, for example, happen if You remain a customer for whom We need to provide services or if You wish Us to no longer contact You for marketing purposes. In the latter case, We can't simply erase all of Your information because We'll need some of Your information to facilitate Your request by keeping You on a ‘do not contact' or suppression list.
  • The right to restrict. You have the right to restrict Our processing when one of the following applies: the processing of Your data is unlawful, You contest the accuracy of Your personal data, We don't need Your data anymore for the purpose that they were initially collected for or pending the verification of Your objection to Our processing (more precisely pending the verification whether Our legitimate grounds override Your interests).
  • The right to object to processing. You have the right to object to Our processing if We are using Your data for direct marketing (including profiling) or processing Your data for purposes of scientific or historical research and statistics.
  • The right to data portability. You have the right to copy, transfer, or move personal data.
  • The right to withdraw consent. You have the right to withdraw consent whenever You want.
  • The right to lodge a complaint. If You think We have processed Your personal information unfairly or unlawfully, or We have not complied with Your rights under GDPR, You have the right to complain to a national data protection authority: https://www.dataprotectionauthority.be/

How can You exercise these rights?

You have to contact Us on info@airshaper.com whenever You want to use one of the rights summed up above. To ensure that the request is made by the right person, We ask You to give proof of Your identity by sending Us a copy of the front side of Your identity card (to avoid anyone else exercising Your rights). If necessary, We may ask for additional information to allow Us to individually identify You.

What are Your Obligations?

  • The obligation to provide Your personal data. The provision of personal data is necessary to enter into a contract; therefore, You are obliged to provide Your personal data. Otherwise, You will not enter into a contract and We are not going to be able to provide Our services.
  • The provided personal data must be ‘sufficient and correct'. This implies also the obligation to update Your personal data whenever a change occurs. g. whenever You receive another bank account.

Which personal data do We collect?

We collect and process the following data when You create an account: Your first name, name, email address (work), phone number (work) and password. If You are a company, We will, also process and collect Your company name, address, and VAT-number.

Additional information

We may collect and ask for additional information when You order, purchase, register, subscribe or make use of Our products or services in any way, for example in person, via Our marketing campaigns, via phone or mail order, or Our websites. This does not mean that You cannot object. You can volunteer to disclose additional information that may not be essential for Us to deliver a service to You. But by providing Your personal data You help Us to ensure We communicate with You in a way that is most relevant, useful and engaging for You.

We do not track or collect any sensitive information about You. This includes race, religion, ethnicity, and political opinion.

Individuals under the age of 13

We do not intentionally, or knowingly, process personal information from individuals under the age of 13. We will also ask You to confirm that You are older than 13 years old whenever You create an account or proceed to payment. If You confirm wrongly that You are at least 13 years old, We will delete any details of You as soon as We are (made) aware of this.

Why are We processing and collecting Your personal data?

First of all, under the GDPR the processing of Your personal data is lawful under the following different bases:

  1. You give Your consent
  2. Necessary for the execution of the contract
  3. Necessary for compliance with a legal obligation
  4. Necessary in order to protect Your vital interests or the vital interests of another natural person
  5. Necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests of AirShaper

We primarily use Your personal data as first name, surname, email address and if You are a company Your company name, address and VAT-number too for the purpose of delivering and invoicing the products and services that You have chosen and to personalize Our interactions with You. In other words, We are processing Your personal data because it is necessary to execute Our contract. The following forms of processing are ‘necessary to execute Our contract':

  • To fulfill Your orders and contracts with Us, this includes the processing needed by Our specialized payment providers
  • To send You service notifications related to Your product or service such as password resets and order confirmations.
  • To manage customer service queries and complaints.
  • To send You administrative emails about Your account, reminders for upcoming events, service changes, or new policies. These updates, changes and notifications are essential for the services that You have selected.
  • To manage Your privacy preferences and to ensure You only receive communications that You have requested, which may include using Your details to suppress You from communications.

As mentioned above We can rely on other bases than the processing necessary to execute Our contract or the processing after getting Your consent. So, in certain cases We may process Your information where necessary to further Our legitimate interests, on the condition that those legitimate interests are not overridden by Your rights or interests:

  • To prevent fraud and for other security-related purposes such as to help Us protect against harassment, IP infringement, crime or other security issues some of Your information can also be processed without Your consent, for example, Your name, address or bank account.
  • To prevent users from posting illegal, offensive or objectionable comments on Our Site.
  • To measure customer and user response and engagement with Our products and services such as online content, email newsletters, and offers. This may include sharing Your information with third parties who help Us to analyze and measure these things.
  • To ensure Our products (including websites and apps) are compatible with the browsers and operating systems used by most of Our visitors.
  • To help Us improve Our customer and user experience and to support in new product development We may send customer satisfaction surveys and market research questionnaires.
  • To further Our legitimate interests when You use the online tool to measure the aerodynamics of Your 3D-model. These legitimate interests are the same as those enumerated here.

The personal data that We collect for Our legitimate interests are every personal data mentioned under the title ‘'Which personal data do We collect?".

Whenever We intend to further process the personal data for a purpose other than that for which the personal data were collected, We will ask for Your consent for the processing of Your data if the processing doesn't fall under the other possible lawful bases (as mentioned in the list above from point 2 to 5).
