Privacy Statement

This is the privacy statement for Gasunie Transport Services B.V. (GTS), Concourslaan 17, 9727 KC, Groningen, registered with the Dutch Chamber of Commerce under number 02084889. This privacy statement informs those individuals whose data GTS processes of the type of personal data being processed and why, the storage periods and the rights of the individuals concerned.

What type of information is collected by GTS and why?

GTS uses personal data for several different legal reasons:

  • The use of personal data may be necessary to ensure that the agreements concluded between GTS and its customers are implemented properly.
  • GTS may use personal data for legitimate interests, for example, ensuring that activities such as Shippers' Meetings are recorded.

In doing so, GTS always applies the principle that personal data are processed lawfully, properly and transparently as far as you are concerned. Furthermore, GTS will only process personal data if the same objective cannot be achieved in a different manner.

Storage period

GTS stores personal data as long as it deems it necessary, in order, among other things, to fulfil its relationship with you satisfactorily, to ensure GTS' security in general terms, to be able to comply with applicable legislation (including legislation relating to retention of documents) and, otherwise, to enable GTS to carry out its business activities. If you have any questions about specific storage periods for certain types of personal data, please email our data protection officer functionaris.gegevensbescherming@gasunie.nl.

Security

GTS uses appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect personal data and to help prevent information being stolen, misused, accessed without authorisation, provided, amended or destroyed. For example, GTS stores personal data on computer systems with restricted access and in controlled environments.

Rights of the individual concerned (data subject)

As the individual concerned, you have the following rights:

  • Right to information about the processing: what is happening with your personal data and why?
  • Right of access: you have the right to ask GTS to show whether GTS is processing your personal data, and if so, which.
  • Right to rectification: GTS shall ensure that personal data used are, and remain, accurate. You may ask GTS to correct or supplement data.
  • Right to be forgotten: you have the right to ask GTS to remove your personal data. It is then GTS' responsibility to determine whether that request is justified. This may be the case if the personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they have been processed or the personal data have been unlawfully processed.
  • Right to restriction of processing: you have the right to ask GTS to restrict the processing, for example, if the data are incorrect or processing is unlawful.
  • Right to object: you have the right, for reasons relating to your specific situation, to object to the processing of your personal data. GTS will cease processing unless there are compelling, legitimate grounds for processing which outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms.

If you wish to exercise one or more of these rights, you can do so by emailing our data protection officer functionaris.gegevensbescherming@gasunie.nl. GTS will, as soon as possible, but in any case within one month after receipt of the request, provide information regarding the actions taken by GTS in response to the request. GTS may extend this period by two months in relation to the complexity of the request or the number of requests it receives; you will be informed by GTS if this is the case.

GTS will try to work with you to find a fair solution if you have a complaint about or a problem with the use of your personal data. However, if you feel that GTS has not been able to help, you have the right to submit a complaint to the Data Protection Authority.

If GTS uses your personal data following your consent, you have the right to withdraw this consent at any time.
