Disclaimer & Privacy Policy

Privacy statement

This privacy statement applies to the processing of the personal data of visitors to our platform IT 2030. This platform is managed by Benelux Marketing Team of four entities that form the ‘Bechtle AG’ group: ARP Nederland B.V., ARP NV, Bechtle direct B.V., and Bechtle direct NV (jointly referred to below as ‘IT 2030’).

IT 2030 takes the protection of your personal information seriously. We process your information in accordance with relevant personal data protection legislation – in particular the EU General Data Protection Regulation (the ‘GDPR’).

This privacy statement provides information about the processing of your personal data and about your rights in this regard. By ‘personal data’ we mean all information that enables a natural person to be identified. This mostly pertains to your name, address, telephone number, e-mail address, and also, for example, your IP address. Data is anonymous if it cannot be traced back to an identified or identifiable natural person.


Rights of data subjects

We start by informing you of your rights as a data subject. These are set out in Articles 15 to 22 of the GDPR and cover:

  • the right of the subject to access (Article 15 GDPR);
  • the right to erasure (right to be forgotten) (Article 17 GDPR);
  • the right to rectification (Article 16 GDPR);
  • the right to transfer data (Article 20 GDPR);
  • the right to restrict processing (Article 18 GDPR);
  • the right to object (Article 21 GDPR).

To enforce your rights, or ask any questions about data processing by IT 2030, please send an e-mail to


Right to object

In respect of your right to object please note that if we process your personal data for mailshots you always have the right to object to this processing of your data without the need to give reasons. The same applies to profiling, insofar as this is connected with mailshots.

If you object to the processing in regard to mailshots, we will no longer process your personal data for this purpose. There is no charge for making an objection and there is no specific form for objecting. You should preferably send your objection by e-mail to

If we process your data for legitimate purposes, you can always object to this if you have special personal reasons for doing so. The same applies to profiling on the basis of these provisions. We will then cease processing your personal data unless we can prove we have legitimate grounds this processing that outweigh your own interests, rights, and freedoms, or unless the purpose of the processing is to establish, exercise, or defend legal claims.


Categories of personal data / Sources of personal data

In the first instance, IT 2030 processes your personal data via because you yourself provide us with this data. For example, you send us a question via our contact form, or you leave data with us if you wish to receive information from us in digital form.

Please note that where necessary we also make information for special processing situations available separately on a different place, for example with regard to the downloading of digital communications.


Website visits: When you visit our website your browser will forward the following sorts of data, which we then store: your computer’s IP address, the server requests (e.g. the pages called up) and time, the type of browser, the referrer URL (the website address that you visited before ours if you arrive at our website via a hyperlink).

The first three types of data are technically required so that the requested pages of this website are properly presented. We can also use this data, where necessary, to maintain a safe management of this website (e.g. to protect the website against hacking). The referrer URL will be used in an anonymised form for advertising statistics. For technical safety reasons and principally to protect our web servers against attempted attacks, this sort of data will also be stored for a limited period of time in accordance with Article 6 section 1.f of the GDPR.


Request for contact: You can submit various requests via our website, such as submitting questions or comments regarding our products and services. Depending on the request, you can make contact by telephone and/or via a contact form. You can send us the required contact data, such as first and family names, sex, telephone number, and e-mail address, together with your message, via this contact form. This data is used for contact purposes and to answer/comply with your request.


Newsletters: You can subscribe to our newsletter via our website. To be able to send you our newsletter we need to process your first and family names, sex, telephone number, and e-mail address. We apply anonymous line-tracking for statistical purposes.


Downloading of digital information: You can download digital information via our website. To be able to do this, we usually ask for your first and family names, sex, telephone number, and e-mail address.


Purposes and legal bases for data processing

In processing your personal data, we comply with the provisions of the GDPR and all other current regulations governing data protection. The legal bases for the data processing arise in particular from Article 6 GDPR.

We use your data to send digital communications and to be able to contact you in response to your request for contact regarding our products and services.

We also use your data for offering products and services as well as strengthening customer relationships, which may include analyses for marketing purposes and mailings. For example, when you sign up for our newsletter and enter your data, we process your data for handling and delivering the newsletter. If you leave us your data when downloading one of our whitepapers, we will process your data in order to contact you by phone and share appropriate information and offers with you (read: telemarketing). If you leave your data so that we can contact you about our products or services, we will process your data for that purpose. In such cases, the legal basis for processing is your consent. In addition, the processing can be based on the legitimate interest. Suppose you disclose your personal data to us as a natural person exercising a profession or business, then we as an organisation may use your data for telephone sales and are not obliged to ask your prior consent, provided you have been clearly informed of this fact in advance. To be on the safe side, we would like to point out that we offer the possibility of opting out of every telephone call. As soon as you do so, we will no longer process your data for telemarketing purposes.


IT 2030 receives your data via Oracle Eloqua. Oracle Eloqua is managed by the Benelux Marketing Team, a part of Bechtle AG, which then independently assesses what entity will contact you for the potential creation of a business relationship, as well as the offer of products and services.

If ultimately you do enter into a business relationship with one of the entities of the IT 2030 platform, you will be referred to the privacy statement of the relevant entity. You can read these privacy statements via the following links:

In essence, if you leave us personal data to enable us to contact you about our products and services, we will process your data for this purpose. In such cases the statutory basis for processing is both your consent and the need to perform or prepare for a contract with you.

In addition, we analyse your behaviour on this website to help us improve this website and to target our products and services to your preferences.

Special categories of personal data as defined in Article 9 section 1 of the GDPR will only be processed if this is necessary on the basis of the legal rules and there is no reason to assume that your legitimate interests prevail such as to exclude the processing.



Our website is not aimed at persons under the age of 16 and therefore we do not intend to collate data about our website visitors under this age. However, we are unable to check whether a visitor is older than 16. Accordingly, we advise parents to be involved in the online activities of their children in order to prevent the collating of data about their children without parental consent. If you are sure that we have collated personal information about a minor child without this consent, you should contact us by e-mail sent to We will then delete this data.


Periods for storing data

We will store your data for as long as we need it for the relevant processing goal. Please note that many storage periods require the storage of the data for longer, especially in the case of mandatory commercial-law and tax-law storage obligations under, for example, the Dutch Commercial Law Code, tax legislation, etc.

If you provide us with your data via our website and thereby demonstrate a concrete interest in our products and services, we will store your personal data for as long as the interest in potentially creating a business relationship remains mutual. Your personal data will be deleted within four weeks following the end of a period of one year in which there has been no further contact.

However, if we agree with you to keep your data for a longer period to enable you to continue to consult it, we will keep it until you notify us to delete it.


Supplying data to third parties / Receipt of data from third parties

IT 2030 guarantees that only those people who need your data to comply with possible contractual and statutory obligations will actually receive it.

IT 2030 is, as explained above, a part of the ‘Bechtle AG’ Group. IT 2030 receives your data via Oracle Eloqua. Oracle Eloqua is managed by the Benelux Marketing Team. The IBU of Bechtle AG independently assesses what entity will contact you for the potential creation of a business relationship, as well as the offer of products and services.

Naturally, in the event of any suspicion of fraud or misuse of our website we may forward personal data to the competent authorities. We do this on the basis of our and other parties’ legitimate interest in ensuring that our website is not misused for fraudulent or other unlawful purposes.

In accordance with the relevant privacy legislation, and to guarantee the security and lawfulness of the data processing, we try always to enter into a data processor agreement if we process your personal data for another company, or if we have your personal data processed by another company.


Supplying data to third countries

Data will only be transferred to third countries (countries other than member states of the European Union or the European Economic Area) insofar as this is required by law, or you have given us your consent, or this is necessary for the performance of a contract.

Our platform may transfer your personal data to companies within the group that are registered outside the European Economic Area, namely Switzerland. The aim is to guarantee compliance with the data protection level through binding Standard Contract Clauses, (also known as ‘EU Model Clauses’), commercial regulations governing data protection, etc.


Safe transfer of data

In order to protect the data that we store as well as possible against any accidental or deliberate manipulation, loss, destruction, or access by unauthorised persons, we adopt technical and organisational security measures.

For example, the connection between your device and our website is always encrypted (with SSL/TLS/HTTPS or a comparable technique), and always in line with current encryption protocols.

We also ensure that systems in which your personal data is stored and processed are protected against access and use by unauthorised persons, through access controls and authentification (such as passwords or multifactor authentication).

Naturally, we also ensure that our systems have regular security updates and that our security measures are regularly checked.

In addition, we offer our users a content encryption when using our contact forms, so that this data can only be decoded by us. There is also the option of using alternative forms of communication, such as the postal service.

If you nevertheless suspect that your data is not being properly secured or there is evidence of misuse, you should contact us by e-mail at


Newsletter (Article 6 section 1.a of the GDPR)

You can subscribe for free to our newsletter via our website. If you give your express consent for this by, for example, disclosing your e-mail address for that purpose, or ticking a check-box, you will be added to our list of subscribers. The principle applied here is to minimise the data processing and to restrict the storage of data to the minimum. The mandatory fields include only your e-mail address and name, so that we can send you the personalised newsletter. For technical and legal reasons when you subscribe to the newsletter, we will also process your IP address.

Apart from this, your e-mail address will only be added to the list of subscribers with your express consent. Naturally, you can unsubscribe from the newsletter at any time via the link below each newsletter and thereby withdraw your consent. In addition, you can always directly unsubscribe from the newsletter via our website.


Automated individual decisions  

Our organisation does not use entirely automated processing steps to reach any decision.

If any negative decision is taken about you on the basis of any automated decision and/or profiling, and you disagree with this, you should contact us by e-mail via We will then delete this data.


Third-party websites

This statement does not apply to third-party websites that are connected to this website via links. We are unable to guarantee that these third parties will deal with your data in a safe and reliable manner. We recommend that you read the privacy statements of these websites before making use of these websites.


Changes to privacy statement

We reserve the right to make changes to this privacy statement. Any such changes will be published on this website. We recommend you consult this privacy statement at regular intervals so that you are up to date with any changes.
