Data Processing

This information is mainly collected through automatic processes such as cookies, which are explained in our cookie policy.
PR Bureau collects such data to optimize our website, to provide relevant content for our users, to obtain knowledge regarding necessary or excessive content, to prevent misuse of our website or in the possible situation of settling a claim or dispute.

Storage and Receivers

PR Bureau stores the processed Personal Data for as long as necessary regarding the purposes for which the data were collected and/or for as long as the Data Subject uses our services and the processed Personal Data are necessary for these services. When the purpose of the collection of said data has ended, PR Bureau will assess whether we are required to store personal data by law or to settle a possible claim or dispute. For example, PR Bureau stores (personal) data for the duration of 7 years, if these (personal) data are relevant for our financial administration, as required by law.

PR Bureau always assesses whether these third parties are compliant with GDPR standards and enters into binding agreements with them to enforce strict and clear requirements. Furthermore, PR Bureau might transfer Personal Data to third parties if a) a user has given their explicit consent, or in the event PR Bureau is required to do so because of b) a claim or dispute, c) compliance to legal obligations, or d) an act against unlawful use or misuse of our website and/or property and/or services.
