Also cookies are being used in order to make the use of the Website attractive and facilitate the use of specific functions. MyDayDayBelgium also intends to use Google Analytics, a web analytics service that uses cookies. These are text files that are stored on the customers computer/and other devices and enable Google to analyze how the customer uses the Website.

 
§ 4 – PURPOSE OF THE DATA PROCESSING

 

4.1 The collected Personal Data is used to process the execution and follow-up of the customer’s Orders (performance of the contract). In addition, the Personal Data collected is used to improve the services of MyDayDayBelgium and to let it know the customers interests with regard to the functionalities, the performances and the support of its services.

 

4.2 The collected Personal Data may be used and processed by MyDayDayBelgium itself or via several supports for the purposes of promotional, commercial or information communications. In this context, in order to ensure a better use of its services and to keep the customer informed about MyDayDayBeligums news and its best offers, MyDayDayBelgium may offer its newsletters for free. Unless the customer notifies his objection, MyDayDayBelgium is entitled to send the customer via e-mail information regarding the use of its services and its promotional offers.

 

4.3 In addition, MyDayDayBelgium may use the Personal Data collected to carry out studies aimed at improving its services.

 

4.4 Where it is necessary to enable MyDayDayBelgium to execute the orders of the customer, it may transfer the Personal Data of the customer to third parties (for example: data may be transferred to the bank, payment card system operators, shippers, warehouses, insurers, catalogue and direct marketing fulfilment and distribution). These third-party providers will only collect, use and disclose the customer’s information to the extent necessary to allow them to perform the services they provide to MyDayDayBelgium. However, certain third party service providers, have their own privacy policies in respect to the information that is required to provide to them for the customer’s purchase-related transactions. For these providers, it is recommended that the customer reads their privacy policies so he can understand the manner in which his personal information will be handled by these providers.

In particular, the customer is reminded that certain providers may be located in or have facilities that are located in a different jurisdiction. So if the customer elect to proceed with a transaction that involves the services of a third party service provider, then the customer’s information may become subject to the laws of the jurisdiction(s) in which that service provider or its facilities are located.

 

4.5 Personal Data may be disclosed if necessary in order to (a) respect the applicable laws or satisfy a Court order or injunction; or to (b) protect and defend the rights of MyDayDayBelgium and the rights of the users of the Website.

 

4.6 Where Personal Data can be aggregated and anonymized by removing the personally identifiable information such as the name and e-mail address MyDayDayBelgium can use it for research purposes without restriction. Such anonymized Personal Data may further be disclosed to third parties. MyDayDayBelgium is entitled to do this because the resulting data will not personally identify the customer and will therefore no longer constitute Personal Data for the purposes of data protection laws.

 

4.7 Except as otherwise provided in the present section, MyDayDayBelgium undertakes not to transfer the customer’s Personal Data to third parties without his approval.

 

§5 – SECURITY

 

To protect the Personal Data, MyDayDayBelgium takes reasonable precautions and follows industry best practices to make sure it is not inappropriately lost, misused, accessed, disclosed, altered or destroyed.

 

MyDayDayBelgium uses a variety of security technologies and organizational procedures to help protect the Personal Data. For example, access controls are implemented, firewalls and secure servers are used, and data is encrypted, such as financial information and other important data.

 

However, no data transmission over the internet can be guaranteed to be completely secure. So, whilst MyDayDayBelgium strives to safeguard the customer’s information, the security of any information provided by the customer cannot be guaranteed and providing Personal Data is therefore at the customer’s own risk.

 

§6 – TIME OF RETENTION OF PERSONAL DATA

 

By entering its Personal Data and/or creating a membership account the customer agrees to the data processing. MyDayDayBelgium will hold the Personal Data for as long as it is necessary for the execution and the follow-up of the Order. This will usually be for two years.

 

On the other hand, some Data will be kept as long as is required for legal purposes (commercial and tax law), with a maximum of ten years.

 

In the event MyDayDayBelgium relies on the consent of the customer to contact him for direct marketing purposes, the consent of the customer will be treated as lasting only for as long as it is reasonable to do so. This will usually be for two years. It can be periodically asked to renew the customer’s consent.

 

If the customer asks to stop contacting him with marketing materials, MyDayDayBelgium will keep a record of the contact details and limited information needed to ensure that can be complied with the request of the customer.
