Eurolife undertakes to process the personal data of the visitors of its website in compliance with the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 which is fully applicable since 25 May 2018 (General Data Protection Regulation).
A. Concerning the GDPR
According to the Regulation (EU) 2016/679, a personal data is any information relating to an identified natural person or 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 processing of the personal data that are collected via the form is clearly indicated on the Contact us page.
The personal 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 personal data are only processed by Renato Jannone; being de facto the sole controller. He resides at 19 rue Tenbosch in 1000 Brussels.
The provision of personal data via the form by the data subjects is not a statutory or contractual requirement or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract. However, some of them are necessary to perform the above processing. They are indicated by an asterisk. Finally, this processing does not imply any obligation to reply on the part of the data subject.
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 regulation (EU) 2016/679, which is fully applicable since 25 May 2018, data subjects have the following rights:
- Right to transparency of information and communications coming from the controller (see article 12 that defines also the modalities for the exercise of the rights of the data subjects);
- Right to information when their personal data are collected (see articles 13 and 14);
- Right of access to their personal data (see article 15);
- Right to rectification of their personal data (see article 16);
- Right to erasure of their personal data (right to be forgotten – see article 17);
- Right to restriction of processing of their personal data (cf. article 18);
- Right to obtain information on the recipients to whom their personal data have been communicated (see article 19):
- Right to portability of their personal data (see article 20);
- Right to object to the processing of their personal data, in particular for direct marketing purposes (see article 21);
- Right not to be subject to a decision based solely on automated processing, including profiling (see article 22);
- Right to information about any violation of their personal data that can likely expose them to a high risk to their rights and freedoms (see article 34).
The data subjects are informed of the existence of these rights when they provide their personal data via our website.
To exercise their rights – with regard to the processing of their personal data collected through our website -, they may send a postal letter or en e-mail to Renato Jannone. When requested by a data subject, the information may be provided orally, provided that the identity of the data subject is proven by other means.
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.
