We use this information to analyze trends, to administer the Website, to track users’ movements around the Website and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.

Cookies. Cookies are alphanumeric identifiers that we transfer to your computer’s hard drive through your web browser for record-keeping purposes. Some cookies allow us to make it easier for you to navigate our Website, while other cookies are used to enable a faster log-in process or to allow us to track your activities at the Website. There are two types of cookies: session-based and persistent-based cookies. We also allow vendors to use cookies on our Website.

Session Cookies. Session cookies exist only during an online session. They disappear from your computer when you close your browser or turn off your computer. We use session cookies to allow our systems to uniquely identify you during a session or while you are logged in to the Website.

Where it is required by law, we will obtain your explicit consent to do so.

For all data transfers outside of the United Kingdom or European Economic Area, we ensure through the appropriate safeguards embedded in the contract or other measures that your data receives an adequate level of protection comparable to the protection it would have within the EU in accordance with applicable law..

What are your privacy-rights and how can you exercise them?

An overview of your rights:

You are entitled to access or review, stop the processing of and to request the rectification or erasure (“right to be forgotten”) of your personal data. Furthermore, you are entitled to object to the use of your personal data for direct marketing purposes by opting out through the link at the bottom of any promotional email. You also have the right to ask for the provision of a copy of all your personal data which are processed by us, where technically feasible. You also have the right to exercise your right to data portability.

Practicalities:

How to exercise your rights? To exercise these rights, or if you require further information regarding your rights, simply email privacy@vandevelde.eu. In order to exercise some of your rights and to prevent any unauthorized disclosure of your personal data, we must verify your identity. In case of doubt or ambiguity, we will first ask you for additional information (for example, a copy of your identity card or driver’s license).

Will you have to pay? Except where prohibited by law, you can exercise your privacy rights free of charge, unless your request is manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular because of repetitive nature. In such a case we have the right and the choice to charge you a reasonable fee (taking into account the administrative costs to provide the requested information or communication) or to refuse to comply with your request.

How will you receive an answer? Your requested information will be provided to you (a) electronically if possible, in a portable and, to the extent technically feasible, readily usable format that allows you to transmit this information to another entity without hindrance, unless you request otherwise, or (b) by mail. In any case, we will provide you with a concise, transparent, understandable and easily accessible answer.

When will you receive an answer? We will respond to your request as soon as possible, and in any case within the required timeline under applicable law. Finally, you have the right to lodge a complaint with your local data protection authority.

How long are we keeping your personal data? We are not allowed to store personal data for longer than is necessary to achieve the purpose for which we collected it. The retention period can therefore be different according to the processing activity. For example, in order to meet our accounting and tax obligations, we are subject to a variety of local laws to keep your data for a certain period of time.
After the applicable storage period(s) have expired, your personal data will be deleted or deidentified.

How can you stay informed of adjustments to this Policy? This Policy is effective as of the Effective Date set forth above.
