  • As a customer of BricksBlue, we can approach you with news, promotions or tips until you let us know that you no longer appreciate this. As soon as you do so, BricksBlue will only retain the personal data that is necessary to be able to demonstrate when you have informed us of this.

To the extent necessary, we have made agreements with these third parties to protect your personal data, including agreements about technical and organizational measures to protect the processed personal data.

If you communicate with BricksBlue via a social media channel, the registration of our communication falls within the domain of the chosen channel and the terms of that channel apply. Insofar as BricksBlue processes that personal data for its own purposes, this privacy statement applies.

What about profiling?

Profiling is the collection of characteristics, interests and data of you as a broker, with which a profile is created. This way you can receive targeted and relevant information, actions and relevant invitations to events.

This is done on the basis of personal data obtained using cookies and similar techniques (see our cookie policy), combined with other personal data that BricksBlue obtains, such as personal data that you enter (for example, on forms available via bricksblue.com/admin).

BricksBlue uses profiling to personalize information on the BricksBlue platform, telemarketing or send you relevant mailings, promotions and advertisements, to tailor our services and products to your personal needs and for an optimal interpretation of our customer contact. For example, we can analyse your actions on bricksblue.com/admin using cookies if you give your consent, in order to be able to respond more effectively to your wishes and needs. In this way we try to continuously improve the cooperation with you. No content will be remembered based on our profiling.
