Legal bases for data processing

he personal data of clients are processed on the basis of the 'execution of a contract', namely: the contract of services concluded between the client and Nippon Bearing. If no contract of services has yet been concluded between the parties, but its conclusion is expected, the personal data of the (future) client will be processed on the basis of a 'legitimate interest'.
Data of (potential) future clients that complete the contact form on the website is processed on the basis of a 'legitimate interest'; after all, the personal data of these prospects are processed in order to (possibly) conclude an agreement between the parties.

Purpose of data processing

Nippon Bearing processes your personal data in the context of the execution of a contract of services concluded with you, which also includes contacting you by telephone or in writing (by email or post) in connection with this agreement. In the event that no agreement has yet been concluded, Nippon Bearing will process your personal data in order to enable the conclusion of such an agreement.

Retention period

Nippon Bearing will store your personal data no longer than strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which your data is collected. This means that your personal data will be deleted immediately as soon as the client relationship with you comes to an end. In the case of no client relationship, we will delete your data immediately as soon as we discover that no client relationship will be established, at least after a period of 12 months.

Sharing with third parties

Nippon Bearing only provides your personal data to third parties if this is necessary for the execution of the agreement with you, or in order to comply with a statutory obligation. In order to be able to guarantee your privacy, Nippon Bearing has concluded processing agreements with all processors of personal data to whom these operations are outsourced by our company.

You have the right to access, correct or delete your personal data at any time. You can send a request for access, correction or deletion to tex@nipponbearing.com. Nippon Bearing will respond to your request as soon as possible, and in any event within three weeks.

Lodging a complaint

If Nippon Bearing does not comply with the above, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the Japanese Data Protection Authority, in compliance with the APPI in Japan.


Because we conduct a lot of electronic communication and store your data on our computers or in the cloud (only with reputable parties who offer an optimum level of security), the risk exists that your data could be accessed by third parties (hackers, for example). We do everything we can to minimise this risk, however. Our website, for example, has a so-called SSL certificate, meaning that the data is encrypted and cannot easily be accessed by third parties.
Additionally, we use virus scanners, ensure that the software we use is up to date and only work with software suppliers who offer a high level of security.
We have also paid specific attention in physical and organisational terms to the confidentiality of the information you provide to us.
Finally, we have made clear agreements with the parties with whom we work about your privacy.
If you suspect that your data is not secure, or that there are indications of misuse, or if you would like more information about the security of the personal data collected by us, please contact us via tex@nipponbearing.com.


We hope to have provided you with sufficient insight into our working methods and practices with regard to your privacy. We reserve the right to change this statement, so we advise you to read this page regularly. Our privacy policy was last updated on the 13th of December 2022.
