Every day we strive to improve as much as possible the information and inspiration around the brands Transcontinenta UK Ltd.. represents for interested parties. We do this with our products, but also with our services. In some cases, we need information to do this. We don't just do this. After all, it's all about your privacy and as far as we're concerned there should be no ambiguity about that.
Below you will find our privacy principles and what you should at least know about what we do with your data.
We think it's important that you know at least the following about us:
- We collect data in order to tailor the information experience at Transcontinenta Ltd. even better to your wishes and as soon as we do so, we are always clear about it.
- We are open and honest about the information we collect from you and why we do so.
- We will only exchange your information with third parties if this is strictly necessary, for example to make a service or repair appointment.
- We respect the fact that your data belongs to you. You can therefore always let us know that you no longer give permission for us to process your data.
- The way in which we handle your data and keep it safe is entirely in accordance with European law.

Using our WiFi network.
During a visit to our office you can use free WiFi. Once you have logged on to our WiFi network, data such as the identification number (MAC address) of your device is automatically collected. This data is deleted after one year and Transcontinenta UK Ltd.. only uses it to prevent possible misuse. If any illegal activities take place from our WiFi network, we can block access to the device you are using on our WiFi network.
Service, warranty and services
For example, you can use us to offer your purchase for service or repair. We will then register some of your details. For example, we will need your address details so that we can have your purchase delivered to you and your e-mail address and telephone number to keep you informed of the planning or to ask you if the service has gone as planned. We share this information with external service providers where necessary, because they perform the relevant service for us. For example, the transport service requires your name and address in order to deliver the products to our service providers. These external service providers may, of course, only use your data to perform the service in question. They are therefore not allowed to use or pass on your data independently. We also keep the details of your purchase in order to be able to answer any questions or complaints about our services. We use payment information to better understand our customers and their interest in certain activities. We do this in order to continuously improve the range of our activities. We keep the data for these analyses for two years.
Make an appointment.
Would you like personal help or advice from Transcontinenta UK Ltd.? Then you can make an appointment online or send an e-mail directly to Transcontinenta UK Ltd.. We will then register your name, telephone number and e-mail address so that we can contact you about the appointment. We also use your details to find out if there is anything else we can help you with or to send you a message if we have a nice event, workshop or activity for you. For this we will always ask your permission first. We also collect your information to gain more insight into our customers and service needs, so that we can serve you even better in the future. We keep this form of data about you for a year.
Participating in a promotion, workshop or event.
Promotions, workshops or (mini) events such as trainings or lectures take place on a regular basis. From an organizational point of view, it is sometimes important for us to know who is participating. In addition, we can provide you with information about the time and place and send you a reminder just before the event. If an event changes, we can contact you, for example. In addition, it can also be very interesting for us to find out whether certain products were sold during or after a promotion or event, for example, or what type of customer came to the promotion or event. Therefore, in order to participate in an action or event, we sometimes need certain information from you, such as your name, address and place of residence, interests, etc. etc.. We keep this information for two years. For some promotions, workshops or events we need extra help. In that case, we will share your data with external service providers. These external service providers may only use your data to perform the service in question. They are therefore not allowed to use or pass on your data independently.
