  1. Categories of personal data


It is necessary for us to request certain personal data in order to be able to help our customers as best as possible. Personal data is data that can be traced back to a natural person. The personal data that we (generally) request:

  • Address;

  • Bank details in connection with billing;

  • Phone number;

  • Company details;

  • First name and surname;

  • (Personal) e-mail address (note: the AVG also includes certain company e-mail addresses under personal data. For example, the e-mail address

We only store and use the personal data that is provided directly by you, or of which it is clear that it is provided for processing by Sordile.


  1. Basis and purpose for data processing


Under the GDPR legislation, we are obliged to have a lawful basis for the processing of personal data. Article 6 paragraph 1 sub a, sub b and sub c of the GDPR applies to our situation: the processing of personal data is done on the basis of your consent, the public interest of Sordile, because it is necessary for the execution of an agreement between you and Sordile or because it is necessary to comply with legal obligations.

Article 13(1)(c) of the GDPR then requires us to clearly indicate the 'processing purposes' for which the personal data is intended. Below is therefore an overview of various processing purposes.


  • There are a number of purposes for which Sordile collects your personal data;


  1. Contact

Have you sent an email to ?  Or have you left information via the contact form, social media, WhatsApp or by telephone? Then this data can be processed by Sordile. The focus here is of course on correct handling, whereby we are never a burden to you (with unsolicited approaches).

The bases for processing in this context: our legitimate interest (we need to be able to communicate with you in order to handle or follow up questions or complaints).


  1. Execution of the agreement

When executing our agreement, Sordile needs certain information. Without this data it is not possible for Sordile to properly perform the services and the agreement. Think, for example, of the (email) address, name, telephone number and the address where the product must be delivered.

The bases for processing in this context: execution of the agreement (in case the agreement has been concluded with our customer and to properly perform the agreed services), legal obligations (these are the tax obligations and anti-money laundering regulations) and also our legitimate interest (this concerns the effective performance of services, the representation of our interests, the prevention or intervention in legal proceedings and internal administrative purposes).


  1. Sending and storing invoices

Sordile stores data provided in connection with billing. This applies to both sent and received invoices. Most invoices contain personal data, such as the salutation. It is also possible that an invoice is received/sent to a Sordilese e-mail address with a name in it. In addition, in certain cases personal address details may be stated on invoices. Think of situations where someone has a home office. We now have a legal obligation to invoice, to keep invoices received and to keep invoices sent. These invoices are also necessary to be able to file tax returns.

The grounds for processing in this context: execution of the agreement (in case the agreement has been concluded with our customer), legal obligations (these are the tax obligations and anti-money laundering regulations) and also our legitimate interest (this concerns the effective implementation services, representing our interests, preventing or acting in legal proceedings and internal administrative purposes).





  1. Quotations

Sordile uses the necessary personal data to prepare and send quotations. These include name (first name and last name) and email address.

We process this data for: our legitimate interest (being able to make an offer and to be able to carry out our business activities in a correct and effective manner).


  1. Sending payment reminders

We also store personal data for sending payment reminders. This also includes names, e-mail address, telephone number and address details.

The grounds for processing in this context: legal obligations (these are tax obligations and anti-money laundering regulations) and also our legitimate interest (this concerns the effective performance of services, representing our interests to be paid in full for the agreement become, prevent or act in legal proceedings and internal administrative purposes).


  1. social media

Sordile uses social media. Of which      Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn. Cookies are placed for the use of these social media. For more information about         cookies, you can consult our cookie statement.


  1. Storage period


Above we have indicated for which processing purposes we use your personal data. Pursuant to Article 13, paragraph 2, sub a of the GDPR, we must then indicate the storage period of personal data. It is good to realize that all data is in any case retained for the period that work is performed, or the period that it can reasonably be assumed that data is necessary. Each last moment of contact between you and Sordile counts as a new beginning of the retention periods.

Pay attention! It is possible that data entered and processed for one purpose is transferred to another purpose. This starts a new retention period. For example, when data is provided via social media or a contact form and eventually a service is transferred. When the same data is used, the retention period of this data will extend to that of the next purpose.


  • Explanation:


  1. Contact

The retention period of the data received by a contact request with us differs. A distinction is made in the nature of the contact request. Is it a question for which a single answer is sufficient? Then we usually delete the received data immediately. If the nature of the contact request necessitates the retention of data longer (such as a request for a quote), we will also store it longer. If it appears that storing the data is of no use, we will delete it no more than 1 year after we have received it.


  1. Execute agreement

Data provided for the execution of our agreement will be kept for a maximum period of 7 years after the agreement has been completed and the sending or receipt of the (last) payment. This also includes data that is used to ship the products.


  1. Sending and storing invoices

By law we are obliged to keep invoices (and other administration). After all, the Tax and Customs Administration should be able to check us. According to the requirements of the tax authorities , we must keep our invoices for at least 7 years. We conform to these requirements in all cases. After this period has expired, we will keep your personal data for a maximum period of 2 years.


  1. Quotations

Quotations are deleted after a period of 2 years. The term starts to run from the moment that an offer is refused or becomes a concrete agreement between the parties.


  1. Sending payment reminders

If you are no longer a customer of Sordile, we will delete your data within 2 years after the legal term of 7 years has expired.
