Terug naar boven Introduction
Urban Technology believes that the establishment of trust and privacy is instrumental to the continued growth of the Internet. We also believe that the efficient collection, use and transfer of information serve to enhance the development of the Internet and electronic commerce, provided that such information is handled in a fair and responsible manner. Therefore, in order to inform you of our policies and activities with respect to the collection, use and transfer of personal data on the Internet, Urban Technology is providing you with an electronic copy of this Policy. This Policy applies to websites in the European Union that are owned and operated by Urban Technology B.V. and/or companies that Urban Technology B.V. controls, directly or indirectly (collectively, "Urban Technology"), unless a particular website displays its own privacy policy. Urban Technology B.V. or one of companies that Urban Technology B.V. controls, directly or indirectly, is the data controller with respect to personal data collected and processed via its respective website.

In this Policy, "Personal Data" means information which relates to an individual and which identifies that individual, either directly or indirectly (together with other information that is reasonably likely to come into Urban Technology's possession), such as your name, e-mail address or telephone number.
