A. Lynxxs Privacy Principles

We design our products and services guided by our four key privacy principles:

  • Data Minimization Collecting: only the minimum amount of data required to deliver what you need for a given service.
  • User Transparency and Control: making sure that users know what data is shared and how it is used, and that they can exercise control over it.
  • Privacy by design and default: protecting user privacy and minimizing data collection.
  • Security Hardware and software: working together to keep data secure.

Through these four principles, Lynxx’s goal has always been to let users share data as they wish, in a way that is safe, and they understand and control.

B. General Privacy Rules
Above all, Lynxx complies with the requirements of the relevant and applicable privacy legislation. We carefully manage our client’s data. And we will continue to do that, whilst looking for the best way to provide our services as quickly and easily as possible.

B.1. What personal data do we process and what are we using that data for?
We collect (personal) data and information, which data we process for different purposes.

Per different purpose and different service, we only collect and process data and information which is required for the specific purpose or service. In case collection and processing of any of the below mentioned information and data is not required, we will not collect, process and/or use such information and data.

B.1.1 Personal information
We always collect your IP address.

B.1.2 Location data
We collect the GPS location and IP address of your operating system when the website runs, to determine your location.

B.1.3 Communication data
When subscribed to the emailing list, you agree with the following terms. This does not apply to support queries made through our Contact page. Only with your permission, we use your email address:

  • for sending newsletters and other marketing communication. You can always unsubscribe from a newsletter. The newsletter provides a cancellation opportunity that you can click. You can also withdraw your consent via your account in the app.

B.1.4 Activities data
We will keep your activity on the website to:

  • provide you with user support.
  • observe how our service functions, how we can improve and maintain it.
  • solve software and operational issues.
  • perform tests and research.
  • monitor and analyse usage and activity trends.

B.2. Legal basis for processing your personal data
Personal data may only be processed if there is a legal basis for this (rule of law).

B.2.1 Unambiguous consent
The basis we use for processing your location data is your unambiguous consent (Article 6, paragraph 1 sub a AVG).

By actively giving permission to Lynxx to process your location data, you consent to the processing of your data by Lynxx as described in this privacy statement.

In order for you to understand how a third party EUP treats or processes your data, please check their privacy policy or privacy statement.

If you are younger than 16 years old, then you may only provide personal data to Lynxx if your parent(s) or legal guardian(s) have read this privacy statement and have given permission for you to accept them. Taking into account the available technology, we make a reasonable effort to check whether your parent(s) or legal guardian(s) have actually given permission.

Of course, you can always withdraw your consent by sending us an e-mail. We disconnect your data and remove your personal data from our databases and administration. This right (to withdraw your permission) relates to future processing of your personal data and not to the personal data we have already processed. We cannot provide our services without processing your data.

B.2.2 Execution of the agreement
The basis we use for providing your data to the relevant carrier is based on the execution of the agreement. Personal data is provided to the relevant carrier before making a ticket in order to execute the agreement with you.
