Communication functions on the website

Use of contact form and email links

The website of Loes Kieboom contains information that enables a quick electronic contact to us, as well as direct communication with us, which also includes a general address of the so-called electronic mail (e-mail address). If you contact us by e-mail or via a contact form, the personal data transmitted by you is automatically stored. Such personal data transmitted on a voluntary basis by a user to us is stored for the purpose of processing or contacting the user. There is no transfer of this personal data to third parties and the information may only be shared with third parties in situations of technical or service assistance (e.g. hoster) as described further above.

Use of comment function

Loes Kieboom offers users the possibility to leave individual comments on individual blog contributions on a blog, which is on the website. A blog is a web-based, publicly-accessible portal, through which one or more people called bloggers or web-bloggers may post articles or write down thoughts in so-called blogposts. Blogposts may usually be commented by third parties.

If you leave a comment on the blog published on this website, the comments made by you are also stored and published, as well as information on the date of the commentary and on the user’s name or pseudonym chosen by you. In addition, the IP address assigned by the Internet service provider (ISP) to the user is also logged. This storage of the IP address takes place for security reasons, and in case the user violates the rights of third parties or posts illegal content through a given comment. The storage of these personal data is, therefore, in the own interest of us, so that we can exculpate in the event of an infringement. However, the email adress, while collected for these reasons will not be published on the website and not shared with public. This collected personal data will not be passed to third parties, unless such a transfer is required by law or serves the aim of the defense of us. The comments and the related data is kept as long as it is not deleted on the website.

Sensitive personal information

If you leave a comment, certain information (your name as you provide it) may be publicly visible, however your email address will not be. We will not contact you using your email as this goes against GDPR regulations, so if you wish to be contacted by Loes Kieboom, please contact us directly by using the contact form or email. Please do not request that we contact you in the comments.
At no time should you submit sensitive personal information to the website. This includes your social security number, information regarding race or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, health information, criminal background, or trade union memberships. If you elect to submit such information to us, it will be subject to this Privacy Policy.

How long do we keep your data?

We will only keep your personal information for as long as it is necessary for the purposes set out in this privacy policy, unless a longer retention period is required or permitted by law (such as tax, accounting or other legal requirements).

When we have no ongoing legitimate business need to process your personal information, we will either delete or anonymize it, or, if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information has been stored in backup archives), then we will securely store your personal information and isolate it from any further processing until deletion is possible.
