Privacy of your personal data
Your personal data (first name, last name, telephone number, e-mail address, company name, VAT number, address, postal code, municipality) are processed by FUTECH to manage customers according to the contractual relationship pursuant to your instructions or the order that you place, within the scope of various statutory obligations (our liability, obligation to store and accounting law) and for direct marketing purposes (to perhaps offer you new services), on the grounds of our legitimate interest as an entrepreneur. The processing is always done by the business manager.
We notify you that we cannot erase your data during the assignment allocated to us or the performance of the order placed because then we cannot guarantee our services. Within the scope of statutory obligations applicable to us, we are obliged to keep your personal data for a further 10 years after the assignment has been terminated. Data relating to you that we then store and archive shall only be those necessary within the scope of the statutory obligation.
We must draw your attention to the fact that we can communicate your personal data to third parties within the scope of the assignment allocated to us and in execution of a statutory obligation. You can always consult us in this regard and we will then tell you to which authority your personal data have been transmitted.
If you do not wish us to process your data for direct marketing purposes, all you need do is to tell us this via the contact page on this website. At this address, you can also always ask which data we process on you and have them rectified or erased (the latter to the extent that this is possible within the scope of the allocated assignment/order placed and the law).
Right to access and rectify or erase your data
You have the right to request access, rectify or erase your data. See our contact page for this. We can request you to adequately identify yourself when doing so to prevent misuse. If the matter concerned is access to personal data linked to a cookie, you must also send a copy of the cookie in question. You can find this in your browser settings.
If your data that have been transmitted to us are not correct and you request them to be rectified, you can always request that the data processing be restricted where possible.
Likewise, where possible, all the services that are performed within the scope of the rights granted to you by the General Data Protection Regulation are free of charge.
You can address the Privacy Commission (Drukpersstraat 35 in 1000 Brussels) if you do not agree with the way in which your data are processed.
