We are committed to ensuring that your privacy is protected and that we fully comply at all times with the Belgian Act of 8 December 1992 on the protection of privacy with regard to the processing of personal data and all other applicable legislation, more specifically the Belgian Act of 11 March 2003 on electronic commerce and the Belgian Act of 13 June 2005 on electronic communications.

The following policy explains how we use the information we collect about you and how you can instruct us if you prefer to limit the use of that information and procedures that we have in place to safeguard your privacy.



1. The information we collect and how we use it


When you order or enquire about our products we need to know your name, postal address, e-mail address and telephone number. If you have ordered products on behalf of a third party we will need to know their postal address.
We collect and further process these data to allow us to process your registration and any orders you may make.

 We do not collect or keep in any way your credit card number and expiry date or your bank account details.

The relevant information is then used by us, our agents and sub-contractors to organise delivery of your orders, provide you with statements of your account and to communicate with you on any matter relating to the conduct of your account and the provision of our service.


We may also use aggregate information and statistics for the purposes of monitoring website usage in order to help us develop the website and our services and may provide such aggregate information to third parties. These statistics will not include information that can be used to identify any individual.


From time to time we may provide your information to our customer service agencies for research and analysis purposes or to any other company of our group so that we can monitor and improve the products and services we provide.

We and our group companies may also wish to provide you with information about special features of our website or any other service or products from our company we think may be of interest to you.

 

We draw your attention to the fact that you have the right to access your data and, where appropriate, request rectification of any erroneous data relating to you.

If we change our privacy policy we will post the changes on this page, and may place notices on other pages of the website, so that you may be aware of the information we collect and how we use it at all times. We may also decide to e-mail you of a change so that you may consent to our use of your information in that way (we will e-mail you in any case when your consent to a change is required by the applicable legislation).
