We create an account for every customer who purchases a service from us. Your account includes the following details:
- Your name and address;
- Phone number;
- Billing address;
- E-mail address;
- Payment details;
- The name and phone numbers of your contacts;

When you create an account at Egardia, we store your data on a secure server.
We only store and use the personal data that you provide directly, within the context of the requested service.
In order to be able to help you properly when you contact our customer service, we request your personal data, such as your name, address, e-mail address and telephone number. This information is only used to answer your question as well and quickly as possible. Every time you contact us, we make a note about what we discussed, so you do not have to tell your story twice and we can help you more quickly!
Providing information to third parties
Occasionally, we have to hire external companies to help us with certain services. In some of these cases, we need to share your data with those companies because they need it in order to perform and fulfil a service for Egardia and ultimately for you.
We restrict the data we share with third parties to only the purposes for which the other party needs them. They are strictly controlled by Egardia to ensure that your privacy remains protected. These parties may never use or pass on your data independently.
We may pass on your data if we are obliged to do so by certain laws and regulations and/or legal rulings. In addition, we may also pass on your data in case our organization or part of it is sold and the buyer requires your data to continue the service(s) that you use.
Employees of Egardia cannot view camera footage from installed cameras. Stored camera footage can also not be accessed by employees of Egardia. Customers can give Egardia employees access to their personal environment when this is necessary for installation and service related activities.
The Egardia app collects location data to enable automatically turning on your alarm system when the last resident leaves home and to enable automatically sending a verification message for deactivating the alarm system when the first resident comes back home. The app will access the device location even when the app is closed or not in use.
We take security measures to limit abuse of and unauthorized access to personal data.
The personal data described above are retained for as long as necessary to fulfil the service. The data will then be erased unless there is a statutory obligation that requires longer storage (such as the seven-year fiscal retention obligation for payment data).
