3. Why do we process your personal data?
We process your personal data through cookies for several different purposes: to improve our Website and the experiences and services we offer; to show advertisements; to provide information to third parties and to keep the web experiences we offer, our Website, you and us safe.
- TVH processes your personal data to offer you more personalized content and advertisements and perform statistical analyses so that we may improve our Website, Webshops, advertisements, products and services or develop new products and services.
- TVH may process your personal data for informing any third party in the context of a possible merger with, acquisition from/by or demerger by that third party, even if that third party is located outside the EU.
- Your personal data may be transferred to the police or the judicial authorities as evidence or if there are justified suspicions of an unlawful act or crime committed by you through your use of the Website.
4. What makes the processing of your personal data legitimate?
The law requires us to state precisely which legal basis we use to process your personal data. We may process your personal data because you have given your consent to do so, because the law obliges us to do so or because it is in our or a third party’s legitimate interest.
- keeping our Website, Webshops, Social Media Channels, products and services safe from misuse and illegal activity.
- The processing of your personal data for the purposes outlined in clause 4 is necessary to allow TVH to comply with its legal obligations.
5. Who receives your personal data?
Our general approach is that we do not share your personal with third parties, unless you consent to it. However, sometimes it is unavoidable that third parties receive your personal data. Service providers which help us to provide the Website to you and entities within the TVH group may receive and process your personal data in certain circumstances.
- TVH relies on third party processors to provide you the Website as well as to process your personal data on our behalf. These third party processors are only allowed to process your personal data on behalf of TVH upon explicit written instruction of TVH. TVH warrants that all third party processors are selected with due care and are obliged to observe the safety and integrity of your personal data.

However, TVH may send anonymized and/or aggregated data to other organizations that may use those data for improving products and services as well as tailor the marketing, displaying and selling of those goods and services.
6. Do we transfer your personal data outside the EEA?
Yes, we transfer your personal data outside the EEA (i.e. the European Economic Area, consisting of the EU and Norway, Liechtenstein and Iceland). Parties to whom we transfer our personal data are entities within the TVH group and foreign service providers. It goes without saying that your personal data are safe when we send your personal data to countries outside the EEA.
- TVH processes your personal data first and foremost within the EEA. However, in order to process your personal data for the purposes outlined in article 3 above, we may also transfer your personal data to other entities within TVH group or to third parties who process on our behalf which are located outside the EEA. Each entity outside the EEA that processes your personal data shall be bound to observe adequate safeguards with regard to the processing of your personal data. Such safeguards will be the consequence of:
- the recipient country having legislation in place which may be considered equivalent to the protection offered within the EEA; or
- of a contractual arrangement between TVH and that entity. All TVH entities are parties to a contractual arrangement based on the EC’s Standard Contractual Clauses (controller-to-controller) (Commission Decision C(2004)5721).
- TVH may transfer anonymized and/or aggregated data to organizations outside of the EEA. Should such transfer take place, TVH will ensure that there are safeguards in place to ensure the safety and integrity of your data as well as all rights with respect to personal data you might enjoy under applicable mandatory law.
7. What are the quality assurances with regard to your personal data?
We will not process more personal data than we need for the purposes we have communicated to you. Additionally, we will only process your personal data for as long as needed to achieve the purposes we have communicated to you or up until such time where you withdraw your consent for processing them and no other legal ground applies that allows us to proceed in processing your personal data. We also guarantee to keep your personal data safe.
- TVH does its utmost best to process only those personal data which are necessary to achieve the purposes listed under article 3.
- an overriding interest of TVH, the payment service provider, or any other third party in keeping your personal data identifiable;
- a legal or regulatory obligation or a judicial or administrative order that prevents TVH from de-identifying them.
- TVH will take the appropriate technical and organizational measures to keep your personal data safe from unauthorized access or theft as well as accidental loss, tampering or destruction. Access by personnel of TVH or its third party processors will only be on a need-to-know basis and subject to strict confidentiality obligations. You understand, however, that safety and security are best efforts obligations only which can never be guaranteed.
