The types of Personal Data we collect depend on the communication, application or service you request or receive.

We may need to provide your Personal Information to our affiliates and/or subcontractors in accordance with the Privacy Policy and/or the GDPR, and located in any country including outside the European Union, even if that country does not provide an adequate level of protection for your Personal Information, solely for the purpose of carrying out such processing.

We will not disclose, sell, rent or trade any personally identifiable information to any other organisation or entity, except after notifying you and receiving your express consent, or as required by law.

For what purpose do we collect Personal Data and for how long do we keep your Personal Data?

We will not use your Personal Data for purposes other than those set out in this Privacy Policy or for the purposes specifically stated when we collect it.

The legal basis for processing your Personal Data is your consent or a legal obligation. You have the right to withdraw your consent at any time, without prejudice to the lawfulness of the processing based on the consent given prior to the withdrawal of consent.

In particular, we may use Personal Data to:

- Assist us in providing communications, applications or services to you;
- Assist us in handling complaints and other transactions;
- Confirm or correct Personal Data;
- Process information on our behalf;
- Assist us in conducting our business and compliance programs;

You also have the right to object, free of charge and at any time, to the use of your Personal Information for marketing purposes by contacting us at the contact points listed at the end of this Privacy Policy.

The persons and companies to whom we may transfer Personal Information for any of the above purposes may be located in Belgium or in other countries. These other countries may not have laws that provide the same level of data protection as the Privacy Act and/or the GDPR. In any event, these individuals and companies must agree to protect any Personal Data we provide to them from misuse or disclosure. We will put in place appropriate contractual safeguards with respect to such persons and companies providing services to ensure an equivalent level of protection of Personal Data as required by the Privacy Act and/or the GDPR.

We retain your data for as long as the legal basis for which we collected it justifies.

How do you access, review or delete your Personal Data?

Under the Privacy Act and/or the GDPR, we will make your Personal Data available for review upon your request. If you tell us that any Personal Data is incorrect or is being used inappropriately, we will correct, update or delete the Personal Data as appropriate.

You also have the right to ask us to delete or restrict the processing of Personal Data or to object to the processing and the right to data portability.

If you want information on how you can access your Personal Data and exercise your rights, please refer to the contact points mentioned at the end of this Privacy Policy.

How secure is your Personal Information?

We maintain reasonable standards of security, both physically and electronically, including encryption, passwords, physical security measures and management procedures to protect the security and confidentiality of Personal Data. Only a limited number of people among us are authorised to access, delete and modify your data. We will use reasonable efforts to ensure that your privacy interests are protected.


If the information received causes harm to others, is obscene, threatening, criminal or has criminal implications, we reserve the right to use, transmit or retain such information in any way we deem appropriate in our sole and absolute discretion.

Do we test whether users open our emails?

Our emails may contain a web beacon tool to inform us whether our emails have been opened and to check which links and advertisements have been clicked on in the email. We may use this information for purposes such as determining what content is most interesting to our users, whether users who do not open our e-mails want to continue receiving them, and informing advertisers of the total number of users who have clicked on their advertisements. The pixel tool will be removed when the email is deleted. If you do not want the pixel tool to be downloaded to your device, you must choose to receive our emails in plain text rather than in HTML format. You can also set your email software to disable the pixel tool.
