Privacy Policy GlobalBulkShipping

This is version 1.2 of our Privacy Policy, dated 10 October 2009. Version 1.2 is effective from 10 November 2009 for current users and upon acceptance by new users. It will remain effective until the next version replaces it. We advise you to save and/or print a copy of this document for your records. The definitions provided in the Terms of Service also apply here.

Collected data
As a controller of personal data, GlobalBulkShipping abides by the European and Dutch privacy legislation. Most of the data that is collected for the purpose of the Service, however, is related to the company which the Account was set up for, and not the individual User representing that company. Such data is not considered personal and as such is not subject to privacy legislation.

GlobalBulkShipping only retains and uses personal data for the purpose of providing the Service. The data collected can be classified into two categories, namely actively and passively provided data.

The first category refers to data which you actively and consciously provide to GlobalBulkShipping, such as the data which must be entered in order to register and the data that may be added to your personal Account.

The second category refers to data which is collected automatically when you use the site which you might not be aware of, such as your IP address, your internet browser, your browsing behavior on the Website, or the webpage that you visited previous to

In the following table you can find which personal data may be collected how and the purposes which GlobalBulkShipping may use them for.

Kind of data Way of collecting Purpose
First name and last name Active Identifying Users
Internet browser Passive Proper functioning and rendering of the Website in multiple browsers
IP address Passive Security, tracking down or sanctioning misconduct on the Website, lawful requests by police and other lawful authorities
Browsing behavior, e.g. which pages are visited within the domain and when and for how long Passive Delivering targeted ads for/by external services such as Google Analytics

All the data is kept on servers which are under the control of GlobalBulkShipping. Whenever personal data is collected or processed further, SSL technology is used to secure the confidentiality of such data.

Indexing by search engines
The (contact) data that you may add to your Account generally cannot be indexed by search engines. Other Content that you may post generally cannot be indexed.

For the Service to function optimally, cookies are used. A cookie is a small text file that the web server places on your hard drive and that contains some technical information about your computer system. You can allow or prevent the use of cookies if you so desire by changing the settings on your web browser.

Websites of third parties
This Statement does not apply in respect of websites of third parties that are connected to this website by means of links to those websites.

Retention period
All (personal) data about you will only be stored for as long as is necessary for the Service. Your Account will be deleted no more than a year after GlobalBulkShipping has established that you no longer wish to use the Service.

Right of inspection, correction and removal

The information on your personal Account is directly accessible and rectifiable through the website. The information which is not mandatory (such as contact information) can be autonomously corrected or removed by the User.

In addition to this you may send GlobalBulkShipping a request to view all personal data about you controlled by GlobalBulkShipping and subsequently request to have that data corrected or removed.

Because communication databases are exempted from the obligation to notify the Dutch data protection authority (College Bescherming Persoonsgegevens, CBP) GlobalBulkShipping’s database has not been notified to the CBP. However, GlobalBulkShipping may do so in the future, in which case the CBP registration number will be provided in this document.

Any question, request or complaint regarding GlobalBulkShipping’s Privacy Policy may be sent to

Amendments to the Privacy Statement
GlobalBulkShipping reserves the right to amend this Statement. We recommend that you review this Statement on a regular basis in order to remain apprised of such amendments.
