Which data are processed by us and why?

SEP and SSA process different types of data for different ends. The data provided to us via the website, for instance, is used to analyse the way visitors navigate the site. Personal data processing also takes place when you request information via the website, receive our newsletter, enter into an agreement with SEP for a package or event during SAIL Amsterdam 2020, or when you visit SAIL Amsterdam 2020 (perhaps as a guest of a third party who has entered into an agreement with SEP). SEP and/or SSA do not always process the same type of personal data in each of these situations. The following is a list of situations in which a certain type of data is processed:

Processing data not directly provided by you to SEP

In the case of agreements between another party and SEP as part of, or in connection, with a sub-event of SAIL Amsterdam 2020 organised by or on behalf of SEP, your data may be shared by this party with SEP.

SEP has a legitimate interest in processing this data for administrative purposes, to execute the agreement with the other party, to offer adequate service, and for the purposes of safety and efficiency.

During SAIL Amsterdam 2020 SEP (or parties contracted by SEP) will photograph and video the event and the visitors to the event.

SEP will not keep your data for longer than is necessary to achieve the above mentioned purposes. If  legally obliged to retain the data for a longer period, for instance for tax reasons, SEP will do so in accordance with the legally prescribed retention term.

Sharing personal data with third parties
In order to comply with the execution of an agreement, a legal obligation of SEP and/or SSA for the execution of (part) of the SAIL Amsterdam 2020 event, SEP and/or SSA may have to share your data with other parties, to wit the captains of the participating ships. If the data is shared with, and processed by, third parties we will enter into a data processing agreement with them so the existing legal requirements regarding the processing of personal data are met.
