Privacy statement.

Q-engineering processes personal data about you, as you are a user of our websites and/or services. We have provided this privacy statement in order to outline our practices for handling and protecting personal data.
The personal data processed by us
We process the following personal data:
  • first and last name;
  • email address;
  • IP address;
  • data about how you engage with our website;
  • other personal data expressly provided by you in correspondence, telephone calls or by other means.

Purposes of the data processing
Q-engineering will process your data in order to call or email you if you have asked us to do so. If you send us an email or fill out our contact form, the data you provide to us will be retained for as long as is necessary to fully respond to and deal with your message, taking into account the nature of its contents.

We will also process data to allow us to maintain general data regarding visits. To this end, we may in particular record the IP address of your device, the time of the request and data sent by the visitor's browser, in order to carry out statistical analyses of visitor and clicking behaviour on our websites. We endeavour to anonymise these data as much as possible.

We use Google Analytics to track user interactions with our websites and measure the effectiveness of our Adwords advertisements in Google search result pages. The information that we obtain in this manner, including the address of your device (the IP address), is transferred to and stored by Google on servers located in the United States. See the "Google privacy policy" for more information, as well as the specific Google Analytics privacy policy.

Google uses this information to track how our websites are used, to provide us with reports on our websites and to offer its advertisers information on the effectiveness of their campaigns. Google may disclose this information to third parties if Google is required to do so by law or insofar as such third parties process the information on Google's behalf. This is beyond our control. We have not granted Google permission to use the analytics data obtained for other Google services.

Q-engineering's use of Google Analytics is in compliance with the privacy-friendly approach advised by the Dutch Data Protection Authority (Autoriteit Persoonsgegevens).

Q-engineering will also process personal data if there is a legal obligation to do so.

We will not retain personal data processed by us any longer than is strictly necessary.
