Espero B.V. Privacy Statement
Our privacy statement applies to all processing of personal data of our (potential) customers and users of our website. By personal data we mean information that can be directly or indirectly traced back to an individual, without the name of that individual having to be known. This includes data such as their customer number, address, city, e-mail address, telephone number, cookie IDs and financial data.
In the following, all personal data and other data are collectively also referred to as data.
We consider it important that our services are reliable and transparent. We therefore treat your personal data with discretion and care, and ensure that any processing of your data complies with applicable laws and regulations. We may update our privacy statement if new developments require it. You can always check this page for the latest version, to stay informed of changes.
Espero (Wanden) B.V. takes privacy seriously. The following principles underlie the way we respect your privacy:
- We appreciate the trust you place in us in providing us with your personal data. We will always use this personal data in a fair manner that does justice to the trust you place in us.
- You are entitled to clear information about how we use your personal data. We will always communicate transparently about what personal data we collect and why we do so, what we do with it, with whom we share the data, and whom you should contact if you have any concerns.
- We will take all reasonable measures to protect and secure your data from abuse.
- We will comply with all applicable data protection and regulatory laws and we will cooperate with the relevant authorities. In those cases where data protection legislation does not provide, we will act in accordance with generally accepted data protection principles.
Identity of the business
Espero (Wanden) B.V. has been creating the most flexible and attractive wall solutions in appealing projects worldwide since 1939. Mobile walls enable one to temporarily divide, or enlarge or reduce the size of rooms. Useful multifunctional spaces can therefore be created, while also adding value to a building. Mobile walls can be found literally everywhere: from 5 panels in a village house in Groningen to 100 panels in a trade fair hall in Jordan.
Given our constantly expanding product range, we can also vary endlessly in terms of functionality, sound insulation and appearance. Sometimes a building is so special that a special solution is needed, and we then utilise all our knowledge and experience in order to devise the appropriate solution. Check out a selection of our national and international projects on our website.
