Provision of data to third parties

Tonga BV provides your data to a limited circle of third parties that process the data for administrative purposes:

  • Transporters: to send your package, we transfer only your name and address details to the carrier of your package: Orders within the Netherlands or Belgium are delivered by a transport company in your own region. Shipments to other EU countries are handled by TNT.

These visitor date are non-personal. No user IDs are used or stored. The data are made anonymous for the analytics reports. Tonga BV has concluded a processing agreement with Google with regard to Google Analytics. This stipulates that Google only acts as a processor in the processing of the personal data of website visitors. We chose to let Google anonymise IP addresses by masking the last octet of the IP address, so that the full IP address is never stored.

You can also make a request to limit the processing. This means that your personal data will only be stored temporarily, and will not be processed further. You can make such a request, for example, if you believe that we are processing incorrect personal data from you, or you do not want your data to be deleted. We then check whether you are entitled to a limitation of the processing. We do this on the basis of all applicable privacy legislation. If later the possible restriction of personal data is removed by us, you will always be notified of this.
