Privacy statement

Last modified: September 2021

Picasse offers a wide range of communication services, including, and These communication services are done through web applications, where they communicate with groups of people. For this, it is necessary to process personal data, at least the telephone number in the Picasse system. Due to the nature of our services, Picasse therefore has certain personal data, such as telephone numbers, e-mail addresses and names and the like. For Picasse, owner and operator of the above mentioned services, a responsible handling of personal data is of great importance. To ensure privacy, Picasse always acts in accordance with the General Information Protection (GDPR). This privacy policy applies to all Customers of Picasse which purchase one or more of our services. Furthermore, this privacy statement may change from time to time if new developments give rise to this. The most up-to-date privacy statement can be found on our website. When changes are made to this statement, the “last changed” date at the top of the document will be adjusted. We recommend that this statement be made with some regularity, so that it is known how Picasse protects personal data. Below, a more specific reading of Picasse’s data from its customers can be read more specifically.

What data does Picasse process?

  • Personal data

Personal data is data that can be traced back to individuals. Picasse processes customer personal data primarily when they sign up as Picasse’s customer. Picasse then asks for the contact’s organization name, name, billing address, phone number and email address. Picasse then creates an account for picasse’s application. You’ll also ask for a username to create an account. All this data is processed by Picasse. Picasse creates a password for the customer when creating an account. This password can be changed directly by the customer to a new personal password. Even after a customer has signed in, this customer’s data is registered, for example because the customer deliberately leaves data (for example, on a Picasse website), reports a failure, files a complaint or does not pay an invoice. This data is also recorded by Picasse.

  • Traffic data

When customers use our applications, we ‘transport’ data from these customers. This data is also referred to as traffic data. This is information such as which user (IP address or account name), at what time messages were sent to which phone numbers and email addresses were sent. Picasse stores the data about sending messages to which numbers in a message store. Picasse can keep track of whether a customer has logged into a Picasse application and how a customer uses a Picasse application. However, this is not being done actively at this time.

  • Content of the messages

Picasse doesn’t take note of the content of your posts. For the maintenance of the servers, which provide the messaging, it is necessary that a small group of Employees of Picasse, the administrators, have access to these servers. They are not allowed to read messages.

  • Location data

Picasse does not process location data from customers using mobile telephony, unless customers request it for their own use in the context of the presence registration service.

For what purposes does Picasse collect data?

  • Service

Picasse processes personal and traffic data to provide our services. Processing of customer data is necessary to process requests, to create an account, to send invoices and to handle fault reports or complaints. Without processing the above data, we cannot provide our services to customers.

  • Meeting legal obligations

In addition, Picasse is required by law to store traffic data and in some cases to provide it to third parties. This may include the provision of data in the context of a criminal investigation and to competent authorities.

  • Market research and marketing and sales activities

Picasse will never use personal data and traffic data for market research and marketing and sales activities. Customer data will therefore not be made available to external parties.

How long does Picasse keep customer data?

Picasse does not keep customer data for longer than is legally permitted and is necessary for the realization of the purposes for which your data is processed. How long certain data is stored depends on the nature of the data and the purposes for which it is processed. We use the following retention periods for the following categories of personal data:

Visitor data: General visitor data is (anonymised) stored through Google Analytics for 38 months.

Personal data: The personal data you have entered into our forms will be kept for up to 1 month after the contact has taken place, unless you have become a customer.

Customer information: The personal data you have filled out in our forms will be kept until 1 month after the contact has taken place, unless you have become a customer.

Invoices: 7 years in connection with the legal obligation of the Tax Office.

If a customer has a subscription with Picasse, the customer data will be retained at least during the term of the subscription. After the termination of the contract with a customer, Picasse returns (personal) data to the customer and this data is removed from Picasse’s systems and databases. Picasse will also provide the customer with a written statement that this has been done as defined.

Sharing of personal data with third parties

Picasse does not sell your data to third parties and only provides it if necessary for the performance of our agreement with you or to comply with a legal obligation.
