How long will we keep your personal data? 

WeFitter only processes personal data when there is a legal basis that allows us to process this data. We ensure within this context that personal data is only processed for the specific goal for which it is collected.

WeFitter will not process more personal data than necessary. If possible, we process less or no personal data.

WeFitter ensures that the breach of your privacy is not too extensive for the goal that is served by the collection of the personal data. We choose to process personal data that breaches your privacy the least when there is a choice between several personal data items to achieve a goal. WeFitter will keep your personal data as long as your account exists and as long as it is needed for the goal for which the data was collected or is required based on the Dutch Public Records Act. We do not keep personal data longer than required.

 

Special and/or sensitive personal data that we process 

Our website and/or service does not have the intention of collecting data about website visitors who are younger than 16 years old unless they have the consent of their parents or guardian. We cannot, however, check whether a visitor is older than 16. We therefore recommend that parents be involved in the online activities of their children to ensure that personal data about children is not collected without parental consent.

If you are convinced that we have collected personal data about a minor without this consent, contact us through help@wefitter.com. We will then erase this information.

WeFitter will not sell your personal data to third parties and will only share it with contracted data processors or law enforcement if this is required for the correct operation of WeFitter and to comply with a legal obligation.

We enter into a data processing agreement with every data processor with whom we share your personal data. Through this agreement, we ensure that these parties handle your personal data with due care and attention because we continue to be responsible for the protection of your personal data.

Users have the freedom to share information within WeFitter with other users. This only takes place if users have specified this explicitly and it is their responsibility.

Our goal is to make control over your information simple. You can easily edit your information in your profile:
