The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) takes effect as of May 25, 2018.
As a result, from that date, the same privacy legislation applies throughout the European Union (EU).
As of that date, the Dutch Personal Data Protection Act (Wbp) will no longer be relevant.
The GDPR is also known as Algemene Verordening Gegevensbescherming (AVG) in Dutch.
What is "personal information"?
"Personal information" means information that identifies you or could reasonably be used to identify you or another person and which is submitted to and/or collected by the app and maintained by SafeDrivePod BV in an accessible form. Examples of personal information include your name and your e-mail address.
SafeDrivePod product(s) and software: What information do we collect and how is the information used?
While using the app you may be asked to provide certain details. However, to make use of some of our services and products, it is necessary to provide a limited amount of personal information. The personal information that you provide to us by using the app is used by us to make the SafeDrivePod work in the first place. Further, it is used to send you information upon request, the execution of the agreement(s) with you, maintaining contacts with you, conduct market research, creation of- and automatic statistical analysis of profiles of our customers and to inform you about new developments within our company and our (new) products and services that fall within your area of interest.
We use your data mainly and above all to ensure that the SafeDrivePod applications are functional and ensure extra safety while driving. For example, we need your phone number to identify the smartphone connected to the SafeDrivePod, so that we know you are driving your car and not sitting in the train. We need your e-mail address to send you messages in case you have accidentally turned off the app or Bluetooth.
The data we collect about you while you are driving include: Total estimated journey in your car and number of calls. We do not store any location or call data, other than the duration of the calls while driving.
In some cases the SafeDrivePod app contains a so-called SOS button. We register when this button is used. We also register how often you click on the home button of your phone while driving, as this provides an indication as to whether you really do not (want) to use your phone.
Finally, we keep an eye on whether you have turned on Bluetooth and location services (GPS). This is to guarantee the proper functioning of the SafeDrivePod app.
The collected data will be retained until the end of the contract period.
Corona-Tracer product(s) and software: What information do we collect and how is the information used?
A Corona-Tracer stores the device numbers (so-called MAC addresses) of other Corona-Tracers when closer than 2m, to keep track to whom someone has been in close proximity. When a person is ill, the Corona-Tracer is read out with an app, which sends the list as an Excel file to a self-selected email address or own cloud drive. This data file is not sent to our server and the data is therefore not visible to us.
When using the Corona-Tracer, we do not request any personal data, except from the designated person within the company who uses the app to read a Corona-Tracer in case of illness, for which a temporary password is issued by us. We ask this person's email address to provide better support.
The link between MAC addresses and personal data is the responsibility of the company that uses the Corona-Tracers.
Combination of personal information
SafeDrivePod BV may combine the personal information that you provide through the app with personal information provided by you through other media such as when you contact us by telephone.

For example, we need the telephone number of identify the smartphone that connects to the SafeDrivePod, so that we know that you are driving in your car and not sitting in the train. We need your email address to send you messages, e.g. when you accidentally stopped the app or turned off Bluetooth.
We further use this consolidated information to help us improve the design of this app and other products, to communicate information with you, to enhance our marketing and research activities and to facilitate other business functions.
