6.1. The security and confidentiality of the personal data we process is very important to us. That is why we have taken measures to ensure that all personal data processed is kept secure. These measures include technical and organizational measures to protect our infrastructure, systems, applications and processes. We've also taken other measures, such as taking internal policy measures, limiting the processing to the personal data necessary for the fulfillment of the purposes, minimizing the processing of personal data, the pseudonymisation of personal data as soon as possible, transparency with regard to the functions and processing of personal data, enabling the data subject to exercise control over the processing of information, restricting access to personal data based on roles, taking backups of personal data and periodically evaluating our security measures.

Please note that when you wish to exercise a right, we will ask you for proof of identity. We do this to prevent a personal data breach (e.g. because an unauthorized person is impersonating you and is exercising a right in your name).
7.2. You have the right to access your personal data, which means that you may ask us to provide you with information about the personal data we hold about you. You may also request a copy of your personal data. Please note, however, that you must indicate for which processing activities you wish to have access to your personal data.
7.3. You have the right to request that we correct your personal data if you can demonstrate that the personal data we process about you is inaccurate, incomplete, or out of date. Please indicate the context in which we use your personal information (e.g., to respond to a request), so that we can review your request quickly and accurately.
7.4. If we ask your consent to collect and use your personal data, you have the right to withdraw this previously given consent.
7.5. You may ask us to erase your personal data if these personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which we collected them, if their collection was unlawful or if you have successfully exercised your right to withdraw your consent or your right to object to the processing of your personal data. When either of these circumstances applies, we will erase your personal data immediately, unless legal obligations or administrative or judicial orders prohibit us from deleting your personal data.
7.6. You may ask us to restrict the processing of your personal data:
7.7. When we process your personal data on the basis of our own legitimate interests, i.e. you have not given us consent and we do not need them for the performance of a contract, nor to comply with legal obligations, you have the right to object to our processing of your personal data. If our interest relates to direct marketing, we will grant your request immediately. For other interests, for example our security interests, we ask you to describe your specific circumstances that give rise to a request. Then we must balance your circumstances against our interests. If this balancing test results in your circumstances outweighing our interests, we will cease processing your personal data.
7.8. If we have collected your personal data on the basis of your consent or because they were necessary for the performance of a contract with you, you have the right to obtain a copy from us in a structured, widely used and machine-readable format. However, this right only applies to personal data that you have provided to us.
7.9. If you wish to exercise any of these rights, we ask you to send an email to our privacy manager. You can reach our privacy manager on email@example.com. The above rights may be subject to certain legal conditions. A request must clearly indicate and specify which right you wish to exercise. Always indicate the context in which we have obtained your personal data so that we can handle your request quickly and carefully. Your request must also be dated and signed and accompanied by a copy of the front of your valid identity card proving your identity. You can rest assured that we will not interpret an e-mail from you, indicating that you wish to exercise a right, as your consent to the processing of your personal data that goes beyond what is necessary for the processing of your request. We will immediately inform you of the receipt of this request. If the request turns out to be well-founded, we will inform you of this as soon as possible and no later than 30 days after receipt of the request.
7.10. If you make the same request repeatedly and clearly cause inconvenience, we may refuse these successive requests or charge you an administrative fee to cover the costs. We may also deny you the right of access to your personal data or grant your request only partly, if such access could cause disproportionate harm to the rights and freedoms of others, including ours.
7.11. If you have a complaint about the processing of your personal data by us, you can always contact us at the e-mail address mentioned in article 7.9. If you are not satisfied with our response, you may lodge a complaint with the competent data protection authority, i.e. the Belgian Gegevensbeschermingsautoriteit (www.gegevensbeschermingsautoriteit.be).
