Our obligations

Our company may process different kinds of data concerning you as a person. According to the GDPR, we are required to act as a controller in all cases in which we process your personal data. We comply with the associated obligations in the following ways:

–        Your personal data (mostly ordinary personal data such as name, birthdate etc. and sometimes sensitive personal data like a passport copy) are collected from our client for specific purposes and based on justified foundations, namely because of its necessity for the fulfillment of the obligations of a contract with that client. We arrange crew changes of seamen. This entails us organizing transport and accommodation, taking care of different kinds of documents and arranging financial and medical aid.

Through our clients we obtain your personal data. Some of the services that we provide, such as visa applications, require us to share data with third parties (mainly government institutions) for identification purposes.

–        In principle no processing takes place for other purposes.

–        All of our employees are obligated to handle your personal data with care and confidentiality.

–        The right to rectification and erasure of your personal data if necessary. Please note that erasure is not always immediately possible, for example because other laws require the data to be stored for certain periods of time.
