We want to highlight that AQUAWATCH collects and processes your personal information for one overarching goal, i.e. to enable you to optimize and fully automate your fuel management.
That being said, your personal data will only be processed for the following purposes:
3.1 General purposes (all categories 1 to 4):
- To maintain the safety of our Application and/or Services and improve them, as well as to create statistics based on the “legitimate interest” of AQUA-WATCH to improve the Application and/or Services;
- In order to manage your account on the Application and to make sure you can enjoy the Application and the services related to the Application fully, based on the execution of the agreement which you requested;

3.2 Research and statistical purposes
Additionally, some of your personal data – including consumption-related information (categories 1 to 4), will be upon collection added to a special database.
Before we do this, the data will be anonymized (= in no way you can be linked to the data ever again), or pseudonymized (= only with extra information can you be linked to the data again), depending on what is possible, or desirable – the latter taken from your perspective.
AQUA-WATCH chooses to do this because such a database will allow us (as well as other institutions) to conduct further statistical and scientific research.
That is also why we will only store in this database those types of data that are truly relevant and necessary for such research. And, if this research could help us providing you, as an individual, with a better service, we would like to do so.
Yet, AQUA-WATCH will only sell the anonymized data from this database to institutions (who can also use it only for research and statistical purposes). This means that in no way you can ever be linked to this transferred data.

Your personal data (category 1 to 4); will only be used for direct marketing purposes if you give your explicit and preliminary consent. (“Opt-in”).
In case you have given your consent and you are added to AQAU-WATCH direct mailing list, AQUA-WATCH may use your personal data to send you marketing material as well as other material relating to AQUA-WATCH, her products and/or services.
