Privacy Policy


The present privacy statement shall apply to bvba and all bvba websites. bvba and your privacy: bvba aims at giving you as much control as possible over your privacy referring to your personal information and the use that we make of it for running our business. In general, you can visit bvba on the web without telling us who you are or without providing us any information whatsoever with regard to yourself.


A. bvba does not gather personal information about individuals, unless the person concerned gives his/her explicit permission, the gathering of personal details is necessary for the performance of an agreement in which the individual is involved or in one of the other cases as specified in art. 5 of the Law of 8th December 1992 for the protection of privacy.


B. bvba reserves the right to make statistical analyses of the behaviour and characteristics of the subscriber in order to know what interests or what advantages certain issues of the site have and to measure the effect of ad banners or clicking on these banners. bvba will provide related data on this analysis only to third parties. Users also must be aware that bvba sometimes permits third parties to inspect and use data concerning registrations or services for which registration is required through a bvba site. bvba is not responsible for any actions or operations of these third parties; users must examine the Privacy Policy of the third parties concerned themselves when they pass on personal information.


C. Moreover, users must be aware that when they reveal personal information and details voluntarily (e.g. user name, E-mail address, …) on their own website, in message boards, in chat areas or in whatever part of whatever website that is operated by bvba, this information and these details, together with important information and particulars that they announce in their messages, can be collected and can influence each other mutually and can be used by third parties to send unwanted messages of others or third parties. Such activities cannot be supervised by bvba.


D. In addition, users must be aware that personal and non-personal information and details can be collected automatically by the standard operation of internet servers of bvba or by using ‘cookies’. ‘Cookies’ are small fields with text and can be used by a website to recognize a user, they facilitate the user’s log-in and the use of the site, and enable a site to find out how frequently it is used/visited and to collect data that can lead to better contents and purposive advertising. Cookies are not programs that can influence a visitor’s computer system and do not damage files. Generally, cookies operate by assigning a user a unique number that has no meaning beyond the site that has assigned the number. Users should be aware that bvba cannot supervise the use of cookies nor the resulting information with advertisers or third parties for which bvba acts as host. If the user wishes that no information is collected by the use of cookies, there is a simple procedure in most browsers that enables the user to refuse or permit the cookies. In any case, users should note that cookies can be necessary to be able to provide them with important elements (e.g.: adjusting information to be sent) that are available on the bvba site.


On request, bvba will permit every user to opt out of his/her promotional contacts at all times. On request, bvba will try to alter the user’s personal information, if according to the user this information seems to be incorrect, insofar as this is not in conflict with privacy or safety aspects. Furthermore, on a user’s request, bvba will expend all reasonable efforts to delete the user and his/her personal information from its database; however, it is possible that certain initial details of a user remain in the bvba database because of backups and deletions performed in the past.


F. bvba reserves the right to adapt this Privacy Policy at all times by informing users that there is a new Privacy Statement. The present Statement and the Policy outlined in it are not meant to and do not create contractual or other legal rights in behalf of whatever party.


1. What information do we gather and examine:

Sometimes we will need users’ information. In general, this means: completing on-line forms or otherwise so that users can download a product or order a bvba service. If users download E-mail and other products or services, we request them to complete a form with their name and E-mail address. During this process, we offer users the opportunity to refuse further information with important news and events. If users submit themselves to an order on line, their credit card number will be presented to the credit card company or its representative for a normal routine check. bvba does not collect users’ personal credit information, and bvba does not share credit nor credit-card information with other companies or third parties, except when the law requires this or on court order.


2. What do we do with the information gathered:

The information gathered from the forms completed by users is used or incorporated as part of the company strategy in one of the three ways below:

A. So as to put products, services, news and events at users’ disposal.

B. So as to enable users to look up and download products, and

C. So as to gather full demographic and statistical information about users.


How do we collect information: bvba uses several methods to obtain certain other information, such as ‘cookies’, ‘referrers’, IP addresses and environments. Below we explain how we use these methods.


A. A ‘cookie ‘ is a data element which can be sent by a website like bvba to users’ browsers and which attaches itself to the users’ system. A cookie can be used to put specifically measured information about the website that users have visited at their disposal. Some bvba web pages use cookies so that we can help the users better when they visit the bvba web pages by giving them adapted information according to their interests. Users can adjust their browser in this way that it warns them when they receive a cookie so that they get the chance to decide whether or not they wish to accept the cookie.

B. A ‘Referrer’ is the information that is passed on by a web browser that refers to the web URL where the users come from and that links to us. Our web server collects these automatically. This information is used at to analyse demographic and statistical trends and can be used to offer users information adapted to their interests.

C. Our web server automatically gathers IP addresses. Users’ IP address is a number used by computers on the network in order to identify users’ computer so that data (such as the website pages that users request) can be sent to users.

D. Other information collected by bvba is information of the users’ environment such as for example time, web browser type, operating system/platform, and CPU speed. This information is uniquely used for broad demographic and statistical information. This information is only used by bvba when identifying broad demographic and statistical trends and can be used when providing information that is adjusted to users’ interests.

E. Moreover, the sites that are operated by bvba contain links to other websites. In any case, bvba is not responsible for the Privacy Policy or contents of such websites.


3. To which websites does the above relate to: bvba possesses and maintains a range of websites, including Each of these sites has its own mailing list or several manners to contact customers. All these sites pursue the policy of privacy and the policy of sharing information with third parties. A list of the sites and URLs that users can use to delete themselves from the mailing list that they keep is here available for users. Information gathered at bvba is joint ownership of bvba; however, it is only kept on the bvba database at the bvba facilities. This information is collected and used as described above by bvba. The information cannot be used by third parties without the permission of bvba and even then it can only be used in the ways as mentioned above.


4. What do we do with the collected information when users have obtained a bvba product by one of our partners? bvba will use personal, confidential information – obtained by purchases of bvba products or collected on whatever bvba site – only within the framework of its own company strategy as referred to above.


5. Confidential:

The idea ‘confidential’ pursuant to the current legal national and international provisions, the Belgian law of 8th December safeguarding personal privacy (B. S. – the Belgian Official Gazette -, 18th March 1993), as modified by the law of 11th December 1998 (B. S., 3rd February 1999) among other things.
