Which personal data do we process?

As a visitor or customer of  Beginends , we may process the following data:

1. Name and address details

If you become a customer with us, we will be happy to store your name. We do this because we believe in a personal approach and do not want to treat you like a number. Since we are a B2B agency and therefore do not work with private customers, in principle we do not process your personal address data. However, there is the exception for our clients who work from home. For those for whom their business address is the same as the personal address, we do store their address details.

2. Company details

In order to be able to provide our services, to be able to send invoices to the correct address and to possibly come by for an appointment, we store certain company data. This includes the company name, business address, and your business payment details. In addition, it may be necessary to enter additional information

3. Email Address

We keep your email address to contact you directly about the progress of the services we provide. In addition, we save your e-mail address so that it is possible to send you important messages about our services or important developments in our industry. We can also use your e-mail address to keep you up-to-date via newsletters about interesting developments within online marketing and within Beginends . Of course you have the option to unsubscribe from this.

8. Cookies

Some of the aforementioned personal data in combination with the cookies we place make it possible for us to see how you use our website and where your interests lie. This way we can better adapt our website, services and advertisements to your taste. We have set up a cookie notification for this in which you consent to which cookies we may place from you. The permission you have given for placing cookies can be revoked at any time.

Why do we process that personal data?

We process personal data for the following purposes:

1. Services

In Our CRM (Fluent CRM) we keep track of which organizations are customers, including the relevant contact persons. We keep various personal data of contact persons in order to perform our services as optimally as possible. For example, we keep contact details to be able to reach and inform you, and job profiles to provide you with the best possible information. In addition, we use your data for sending invoices. You can reach us through various channels: telephone, post, e-mail, website, LinkedIn and Facebook for example. To make this possible, we also process personal data.

2. Newsletters and mailings

We inform our customers about trends in online marketing and our own products and services through newsletters. If you no longer wish to receive newsletters, you can unsubscribe from each newsletter by clicking the “unsubscribe” link at the bottom, or by sending an email to [email protected]

We also keep personal data to improve our services. For example, we analyze your behaviour on the website in order to improve the website and our communication.

4. Marketing and Sales Activities

Beginends processes contact details and job profiles of customers, leads and other business contacts for marketing and sales activities.

We also process personal data for Beginends campaigns. For example cookie ID, social ID and/or surfing behaviour. We do this to be able to show the most relevant advertisement in the right places.

Retention periods

We do not store personal data longer than necessary to achieve the purposes for which it was obtained. We keep customer data for 5 years after they have terminated the agreement. In addition, we do not store data from leads for longer than 3 years.

Principles of processing

We process data from (future) customers for the execution of an agreement in the form of services. In addition, we process data from customers and leads for carrying out the legitimate interest of Beginends. The legitimate interest with which we process data from leads is mainly because we think we can do something for them. We have considered how relevant we, and in particular our products and services, can be for them.

If we process customer data on the basis of legitimate interest, our legitimate interest lies primarily in keeping our customer informed about our products and services, and in maintaining contact with the customer.

Finally, we process some data with your explicit permission: such as online tracking by means of cookies and sending newsletters if you are not a customer of ours.

Sharing data with third parties

We engage service providers to carry out our services. These are third parties in the form of processors with whom we have concluded a processing agreement. For example, we use Google Analytics, Fluent CRM and Sendinblue. These parties process personal data in accordance with the order of Beginends. We do not provide your information outside the group to third parties for marketing, sales and other business activities. Sometimes we are legally obliged to provide personal data to third parties. Furthermore, we will only provide data to third parties if we have received your explicit permission to do so.

How we protect personal data

All data that you exchange with Beginends via our website is encrypted with SSL security based on the HTTPS protocol. Information you leave by filling out a form is stored securely in Fluent CRM.
