When you want to contact us via our contact form, you must fill in your company name, name, e-mail address and telephone number. We will use these personal data to contact you as soon as possible. We ask you for both your e-mail address and telephone number to avoid any problems with typing errors and to prevent not being able to reach you in any way. These data will also be used to analyse the effectiveness of our contact form. This will have no impact on your privacy: we will solely analyse which contacts resulted in new clients.

You may at all times withdraw your consent by sending an e-mail to privacy@lxa.nl. After LXA has received such message, we will stop the processing activities that are solely based on your consent. However, the above will not affect the processing, or the legitimacy of the processing, that occurred on the basis of the consent that was given before you withdrew your consent, nor does it affect the processing on the basis of a legitimate interest on the part of LXA or any other ground.
