Purpose of processing your personal data
‘Personal data’ refers to all information that relates to you as an individual. In connection with its work, My Home Amsterdam may need your personal data.
My Home Amsterdam needs your personal data to carry out your assignment. When you enter into a rental agreement with a prospective tenant, we need your personal data so that we can include it in the rental agreement. In addition, having these details means that we can easily reach you during the term of your assignment, for instance in case there is an emergency at the property or if there are questions about the performance of the assignment. We may also communicate with you about the performance of the assignment using this personal data.
Consequences of not providing your information
You are obliged to give us the personal data we need for accepting or carrying out the assignment. If you would rather not share with us the personal data that we require, or only some of it, then we will not be able to carry out the assignment properly. If you refuse to provide personal data that we require prior to entering into an agreement, the worst case scenario is that My Home Amsterdam may refuse to accept the assignment. Any consequences arising from deliberately failing to share your personal data, either entirely or in part, will be for your own account. My Home Amsterdam disclaims all liability in this respect.
The personal data that we use
If you register to rent out accommodation through us, we will process the following personal data:
First name and surname;
Place of residence;
Date of birth;
Place of birth;

We get the personal data we require directly from you.

Personal data may be transferred to affiliated companies (if they are based in non-EU countries, the EU standard contractual clauses will govern these transfers) and to third parties with which My Home Amsterdam has a contractual relationship, such as external service providers. My Home Amsterdam will take appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect personal data against unlawful or accidental loss or destruction of, or access to the data. As the client, however, you acknowledge that the transmission of personal data via the internet is never without risk.
