In this Privacy Statement, Phusion explains which data Phusion collects and for what purposes it will be used. In addition to individuals, companies can also make use of Phusion’s website(s) and (web)application(s). However, the GDPR does not apply to corporate data. This Privacy Statement therefore focuses primarily on individuals.
Processing of personal data
Personal data is data which can be used to identify you. Phusion makes a distinction between:
- personal information you actively provide to Phusion, and
- personal information which is automatically passed on to Phusion for technical reasons.
Personal information you actively provide to Phusion, can for instance be: your name, contact preferences and other information you provide to Phusion (e.g. during a registration process or during contact with an employee of Phusion).
Also, by visiting Phusion’s website(s) and the use of Phusion’s (web) applications, software or other expressions, some technical data will automatically be sent by your equipment to Phusion’s computers, such as the IP address used by you, the operating system, the used Internet browser and (in some cases) the last web page you visited.
Any personal data processed by Phusion will only be used for the following purposes:
- for the providing of the services offered on Phusion’s website(s), (web) application(s), software and other expressions,
- to ensure the security and availability of Phusion’s website(s), (web) application(s), software and other expressions,
- to communicate with you,
- to inform you of new products and/or offers of Phusion,
- analyzing and improving Phusion’s service (including the measurement and analysis of statistical data about your use),
- to conduct market research on behalf of Phusion,
- any other processing of your personal data will only be done if you have given Phusion your unambiguous consent. Such consent may appear from the mere fact that you ask a question by email or in another digital way.
Phusion's newsletter(s) are sent to the subscriber(s) of one or more of Phusion’s newsletter(s). The subscriptions consist of two groups:
- Persons who have registered on Phusion's website(s); or through third-party newsletter management service(s) that Phusion uses, such as Mailchimp.
- Existing customers of Phusion.
Registration through our website(s) and third-party newsletter management service(s) takes place by means of a double opt-in process. You will only be listed as a subscriber if you follow the instructions you will receive by email after the registration process. This ensures that only those who will receive our registration email can subscribe to our newsletter.
It is also possible that existing customers will be added to the subscription base at the request of an employee of Phusion. This only happens if such customers have given explicit consent for this fact.
Every newsletter provides a means to unsubscribe from the newsletter, for example by providing a hyperlink at the bottom to an unsubscribe page.
The legal basis for processing is either because it's necessary for the performance of a contract to which the recipient is party, or because it’s necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interest of Phusion.
The legal basis for processing through cookies is either because it's necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interest of Phusion or, when de cookies are not merely "functional", the visitor or user has given consent for the processing.
Google may also transfer this information to third parties if Google is legally required to do so, or in case such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. Google will not combine your IP address with other data held by Google.
Some of our web pages and HTML-formatted email use web beacons, or other technologies, in conjunction with cookies to compile statistics about website and newsletter usage. We use these statistics to optimize the effectiveness of our websites and newsletter campaigns.
A web beacon is an electronic image, called a single-pixel (1x1) or clear GIF. Web beacons can recognize certain types of information on a visitor's computer, such as a visitor's cookie identifier, time and date of a page view and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed. You may render web beacons unusable by rejecting their associated cookies, or by blocking the associated images.
Web beacons on websites are used to compile aggregate, anonymized statistics. Web beacons in newsletters (HTML-formatted email) are used to determine which individual subscribers open which emails.
Retention of personal data
Newsletter subscriber information -- including information collected through web beacons -- is retained until you unsubscribe. When a recipient is unsubscribed, we will only use the personal data to make sure the former recipient will not receive any of our newsletters anymore.
Data stored on Google Analytics is retained for 26 months.
IP addresses are stored in our server log files for up to 4 weeks. These IP addresses are only used for security reasons and for technical troubleshooting.
All website(s), text, images, videos and other manifestations are owned and operated by Phusion. Phusion respects your privacy and ensures that the personal information that you may provide to us is treated confidentially.
In the case Phusion is the controller of your personal data, you (the data subject) have the following rights:
- You can ask us to access, rectify or erase your personal data.
- You may restrict or object to the processing of your personal data.
- You have the right to data portability.
These rights, however, can be limited by other rules and regulations. You can also lodge a complaint regarding the processing of personal data of Phusion at the Dutch supervisory authority "Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens".
Phusion reserves the right to modify this Privacy Statement at any time. Any changes will be announced on our website(s). Phusion can process your personal data for new purposes that are not mentioned in this Privacy Statement. In that case, we will notify you on our website(s) about the changes in the Privacy Statement before using your data for these new purposes. If you do not want Phusion to use your data, you always have the possibility to opt out by sending an email to email@example.com.
With respect to any dispute arising from this privacy statement, Dutch law, in the Dutch language, shall be applicable. The district court of Amsterdam, The Netherlands, shall be the single competent court, unless another court has jurisdiction.
