Dear Mr. << Name removed >> , Thank you for your email and for your questions about the logic of processing of data through our WiFi and Bluetooth system. Schiphol uses sensors to trace Bluetooth and WiFi signals to measure the number of visitors to allow us to give our visitors information on expected peaks and waiting times. This automatic processing is for the benefit of a smooth operation of the airport and to ensure our visitor’s journey via Amsterdam Airport Schiphol is as pleasant as possible. The information does not link to individual user data and personal information is not compromised. The sensors are not used for obtaining individual information about our visitors, nor to gain information about their personality, nor about their behavior. The information will not be used to take any decisions that imply any legal consequences or in any other way affect our visitors. I hope to have informed you sufficiently. Kind regards, Jeanne Jacobs Schiphol Group A.A. (Jeanne) Jacobs-Gilhuis Data Protection Officer Corporate Legal Location code: 01-21 PO Box 7501, 1118 ZG Schiphol Address: Evert v.d.

Dear Madam, The sensors are used to link to private information of the visitors, since they are used to collect MAC addresses and Bluetooth connections set up by their devices. I interpret the second part of your response as implying: "We commit to disabling any feature BLIP systems might implement in the future that might affect individual users, and already have contractual relationships preventing them to use the data they collect in this way". Is this reading of what you wrote correct?
