This website is managed by Direct Social Communications (DSC).

DSC respects the privacy of all users of its website, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation of 25 May 2018.

This privacy statement outlines, among other things, what data is collected by us on this website, how we use this data and how it is secured.

Your data

DSC uses your data to inform you about DSC by email if you agree to this by ticking 'I agree to the privacy terms' on the contact page.

We collect collective data, namely data about the number of visitors to our website and the pages they visit. For each visit, the file name, date and time of the visit, the amount of data transmitted and a message about whether the visit was successful or not are kept. This data provides us with information about the general interests and preferences of our visitors. This data is not personal, but general and statistical in nature. We are therefore unable to determine which users have requested which data.

In addition, we automatically collect and store information that your browser sends us, in particular your IP address and the software version of your browser. This data is the foundation of the basic technology of the Internet and is only used for system administration and the correct forwarding of our pages.

If you send us an email by clicking on 'Send' on the application form or contact page, we will ask you for personal information. This information will not be stored. We emphasize that you are not required to provide all such information. You can largely determine yourself what information you wish to entrust us with. We do need the obligatory data in order to correctly provide the service you have requested from us.

DSC does not create user profiles.

If you do not appreciate our policy, you can let us know at any time by sending a letter to DSC (Victor Rauter 33, 1070 Brussels) or via this form.

DSC will not provide your data to third parties without your prior consent except on the basis of a legal obligation.

Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a service provided by Google Inc., to which the Google privacy statement applies. More information can be found at https://www.google.com/privacypolicy.html.

Responsibility with regard to other websites

The website may contain references (e.g. through a hyperlink, banner or button) to other sites that relate to a specific aspect of this website. This does not mean that DSC is affiliated with these sites or their owners. We are therefore not responsible for compliance with privacy laws by these third parties.

Protection of your data

DSC will take appropriate technical and organisational measures to protect your (personal) data against loss and against any form of unlawful processing.

Your rights

The personal data you enter via the application form and the contact page will only be used by DSC to provide you with the requested information, to contact you for an appointment or to process your requested request.

In accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation of 25 May 2018, you have the right to oppose the processing of your data, as well as the right to access, rectify and delete your data, by letter addressed to DSC (Victor Rauter 33, 1070 Brussels), or by email to donateurs@dsc.be. You can also reach us by filling in this form.

The 'Data Protection Officer' (or DPO - in Dutch the 'Functionaris voor de Gegevensbescherming') of DSC can also be contacted at the same postal address or via dpo@dsc.be.

You also have the right to lodge a complaint with the Belgian Data Protection Authority (whose registered office is at Drukpersstraat 35, 1000 Brussels) regarding the processing of your data by sending a letter to this address or by sending an email to contact@apd-gba.be.
