On May 25, 2018, the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) law came into effect. This European law is also known to us under the Dutch abbreviation AVG (General Data Processing Regulation).
The legislation imposes new and stricter rules for the storage and use of personal data. The law applies to both commercial and non-commercial organizations. Every company or self-employed person must ensure that the storage and use of data about customers, suppliers, personnel, ... is in accordance with the new legislation.
This Charter has been drawn up by Intermaison B.V., with registered office at Essen, Bergenvenstraat 40. The subject of the present Charter is to inform visitors to the website at the address www.thefuture.auction with regard to the way in which data are collected and processed.
