1. General information on data processing

1.1 Processing of personal data and its purpose

SAMSON REGELTECHNIEK B.V. (“SAMSON” or "we" in the following) processes personal user data only as far as it is necessary for providing a functioning website, our contents and services. Site activity, demographics and data server health are processed when visiting our website, e.g.

  • User's IP address
  • Information on the web browser used (type, version, language)
  • Operating system used
  • User's Internet service provider
  • Date and time the user accessed our website
  • Files retrieved from our website
  • Web page from where the user got to our website
  • Web page(s) that the user retrieves on our website
  • Object (image, page) to be opened
  • Protocol (http/https)
  • Return codes (access successful/not successful)
  • Referrer (which link was opened)

The IP address needs to be processed and temporarily saved to supply the web page to the user's computer. This means that the user's IP address must be saved for the session. The log files created contain IP addresses or other data that make it possible to identify the user. The log files are saved to ensure the proper functioning of the web pages. Additionally, we use the data to optimize our site and ensure the security of our IT systems. Personal data are exclusively processed for the mentioned purposes and to the extent necessary for fulfilling these purposes. The data are not used for marketing, customer assistance or market research purposes.

1.2 Legal grounds for the processing of personal data

As a rule, personal user data are processed after users haven given their consent. An exception applies in such cases where prior consent cannot be requested for factual reasons and where laws and regulations permit the processing of personal data. The storage of personal data and log files is governed by Article 6(1) lit. f) GDPR.

1.3 Data erasure and period for which the data are saved

We delete or block the personal data of the data subjects as soon as the purpose for storage has become void. When data are processed to provide web pages, the data are erased at the end of the session. Personal data saved in log files are deleted as soon as possible. Any further storage is possible if the user's IP address has been deleted or depersonalized beforehand so that the accessing client cannot be identified any longer.
