Privacy Policy

Our privacy statement.

CED is a full-service provider offering integrated services ranging from emergency assistance and claims management to repair. The proper conduct of our activities sometimes necessitates processing your personal data. Personal data are data that provide information about an individual person, such as contact details, financial data or data about other privacy-sensitive matters.

We only collect your personal data when we carry out an assignment for you or our clients, or when you visit our office or our website. Our primary use of personal data is in the execution of assignments on your behalf. Examples of such data are your contact details and data necessary for claims handling, loss adjustment or damage repair. We also process images from the security cameras on our premises when you visit our offices.

We always process personal data with care and in accordance with the law and our own privacy policy. The basic principles of our own privacy policy are as follows:

  • We will always tell you what we do with your data and how you can exercise your rights, for example those of inspection and objection.
  • We only use the data for the purpose for which we have collected it (such as order execution, customer relationship management and marketing).
  • We do not collect, use or store more data than that needed to achieve the purpose for which we obtained the data and only if there is no other way to achieve the same purpose.
  • The more privacy-sensitive the data, the less use we make of it.
  • We only use data insofar as such use is legally permitted.
  • We take appropriate security measures against loss of or unauthorized access to personal data.
  • We will only provide your personal data to third parties if we receive sufficient guarantees for the protection of your data.

What type of personal data do we process?

  • Contact details (such as first name, last name, address, place of residence, telephone number, email address).
  • Data relevant to the execution of an order (such as vehicle ownership and registration data, data concerning the counterparty and ownership details).
  • Identification numbers (such as ID numbers and policy numbers).

Sensitive personal data:

  • Financial data (such as account numbers and bank details).
  • Medical data (relevant to emergency medical assistance or treatment of injury).

Selection of elements of the above personal data for processing depends on the service to be provided to you.

We delete the data after the retention period has expired in terms of the applicable rules of conduct and professional practice, or – in the absence of such rules – no later than five years after completion of the assignment, unless we are required by law to retain your data for a longer period or if longer retention is essential for the performance of our activities.

What about the use of my personal data by third parties?

  • CED has made agreements with all parties to which it provides your personal data, so that there are sufficient guarantees for the careful processing of such data, in accordance with the law, with CED’s own privacy policy and with this CED Privacy Statement.
  • If we do give third parties access to your data, we will only do so once we are certain that such third party will only use the data in a way and for a purpose related to the purpose for which the data was obtained, and only in accordance with this CED Privacy Statement. Further, the confidentiality obligations and security measures required by law to prevent your personal data from being disclosed to other parties are always applicable.
  • In some cases, a legal obligation may also require us to provide data to third parties, such as judicial authorities. In such cases we will always respect your right to privacy as much as possible.
  • If we wish to transfer your data outside Europe because, for example, a data centre or our supplier is located there, we will only do so under the conditions required by law, for example under a contract to which the EU Model Clauses apply.

How do we secure your personal data?

  • We take all reasonable and appropriate security measures to protect our visitors and clients from unauthorized access or alteration, disclosure or destruction of their personal data. In so doing we comply with the applicable security standards.
  • If, despite the security measures put in place, there is a security incident that is likely to adversely affect your privacy, we will inform you of the incident as soon as possible. In such case we will also inform you of the measures we have taken to limit the consequences of and prevent future recurrence of such an incident.

What rights do you have with respect to the use of personal data (and how can you exercise them)?

  • You may object to the use of your personal data if, for example, you believe that such use is not necessary for the operation of our business or to comply with a legal requirement.
  • You have the right of access to your personal data. This means that you can inquire as to which personal data has been registered and for what purposes that data will be used.

  • You may ask us to remove your personal data from our systems.
  • You may ask us to arrange for your personal data to be transferred to another party.
  • We will comply with your request, unless we have an overriding, legitimate interest in not deleting the data and such interest outweighs your privacy interests. Once we have deleted the data, technical reasons may prevent us from immediately removing all copies of the data from our systems and backup systems. We may refuse to comply with the foregoing requests if they are unreasonably frequent, involve unreasonably excessive technical effort or have unreasonably severe technical consequences for our systems or endanger the privacy of others.
  • You may submit the aforementioned requests or objections by sending a letter with your name, address, telephone number and a copy of a valid proof of identity to CED or emailing such letter to Please do not forget to render your social security number (BSN) unreadable on the copy of the proof of identity before sending it.
