A. Concerning the GDPR
According to the Regulation (EU) 2016/679, a personal data is any information allowing a direct or indirect identification of a natural person (hereinafter called the data subject). This information can be a name, a telephone number, an e-mail address, a location data, an online identifier, or one or more elements specific to one’s physical, genetic, psychological, cultural, social identity, etc.
Eurolife collects the names and e-mail addresses of Internet users when they voluntarily complete the contact form on its website.
The purpose of the form, and therefore of the processing of the data that are collected, is clearly indicated on the Contact us page.
The data are processed exclusively in order to provide the data subject (i.e. the person who completed the form) with the information requested concerning Eurolife or its service offering. The data are only processed by Renato Jannone; being de facto the sole controller. He resides at 19 rue Tenbosch in 1000 Brussels.
The communication of personal data via the form by the data subjects and their further processing does not entail any obligation to reply or any contractual commitment on their part.
The personal data are not transmitted to another person – neither in Belgium nor abroad – in order to guarantee their confidentiality. And they are only kept in Renato Jannone’s secure Microsoft Exchange messaging inbox for the time necessary to process them.
Under EU regulation 2016/679, which is fully applicable since 25 May 2018, data subjects have notably:
- a right of access (article 15);
- a right to rectification (article 16);
- a right to erasure also called ‘right to be forgotten’ (article 17);
- a right to restriction of processing (article 18);
- a right to data portability (article 20);
- a right to object (article 21);
- a right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling (article 22).
The data subjects are informed of these rights when they provide their personal data via our website. To exercise their rights, they may send a postal letter accompanied by a copy of their identity card to Renato Jannone or send him an e-mail with the affixing of an electronic signature.
Any data subject who considers that the processing of its personal data constitutes a violation of the legal provisions which are applicable has the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority, namely the Data Protection Authority.
B. Concerning the cookies
1. What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file placed via your browser on the hard drive of your terminals (computer, smartphone, etc.) when you consult a website.
2. Types of cookies
2.a. Cookie necessary for the optimal functioning of our website
The tarteaucitron cookie is placed on the hard drive of internet users’ terminals under the domain name www.eurolife.be; and that from the moment they visit our website. It memorizes your choices relating to the acceptance or not of third-party sites’ services and their cookies (cf. point 2.b). It has a lifetime of 12 months.
That said, you can always delete it via the browser on your terminal, knowing that your user experience could then be affected (cf. point 3).
2.b. Social media cookies
To improve its interactivity, our website integrates services from third-party sites; and this via “Share” and “Follow” buttons installed by the AddToAny platform.
Whether you use them or not, these services can track your navigation on our website through their cookies placed by them on the hard drive of your terminals. These are therefore third-party cookies.
That’s why we have installed the tarteaucitron.js cookie manager.
When you visit our website for the first time, the tarteaucitron.js cookie manager displays a banner in the center of the screen. It informs you of the presence of the aforementioned services and their cookies, and proposes you to allow or deny the activation of the services immediately (“✓ OK, allow all”, “✗ Deny all”) or to make choices via the “Personalize” button.
From there, third-party cookies are placed on the hard drive of your terminals and tracking technologies are used if and only if:
- you allow the activation of all the services by clicking on “✓ OK, allow all”;
- you allow the activation of all the services or of some of them via the “Personalize” button.
Thereafter, you can always deny the service(s) activated at the start and the use of tracking technologies or vice versa; and this via the small banner (Manage cookies) located at the bottom of the screen, on the right. The tarteaucitron.js cookie manager retains your choices for 12 months so that they will be applied when you visit again our website.
2.c. Audience measurement cookies
We are continually striving to improve the usability and design of our website in order to best tailor it to the needs of visitors and enhance the user experience. How? By measuring the number of visits, the number of page views, the activity and the frequency of return visitors.
For this, our site uses the site audience analysis solution Google Analytics which is deployed via the Google Tag Manager tag management system. Its use goes hand in hand with the issue of cookies placed on your computer’s hard drive that track your activity on our site, it being understood that your IP address is anonymized.
However, when you arrive on our site, you can oppose the activation of the Google Tag Manager. And reverse your decision at any time, and vice versa. To do this, you can use the tarteaucitron.js cookie manager, which functioning has been explained above (cf. point 2.b).
If you accept Google Tag Manager, it places three cookies on the hard drive of your terminals under eurolife.be: _ga, _gid and _gat_UA-73710992-1. The first two cookies identify the visits and sessions on the site, the third decreases the request rate. The first cookie has a lifespan of 12 months, the second of 24 hours, the third of 60 seconds. Google Tag Manager also deposits a version ID under google_analytics.com.
2.d. The mapping service Google Maps
We have integrated the mapping service Google Maps in the page Contact Us of our website to show you where we are located. But, when you arrive on our site, you can oppose the activation of this service. And reverse your decision at any time, and vice versa. To do this, you can use the tarteaucitron.js cookie manager, which functioning has been explained above (cf. point 2.b).
When Internet users accept this service, their browser send requests to the domains fonts.googleapis.com, fonts.gstatic.com, maps.gstatic.com, maps.googleapis.com, khms0.googleapis.com and khms1.googleapis. com to receive the resources necessary to display the contents of the maps.
Version ID’s can also be stored on the hard drive of your terminals under these domains.
3. Delete cookies (and version ID’s) via your browser
Most browsers are configured to automatically accept cookies. However, you can configure your browser to block them. That said, the new settings will have no effect on cookies already installed on your terminal’s hard drive. You must therefore, if you wish, delete them via your browser.
