Why do we process personal data?
Your personal data will be processed by Les belges for the following purposes and legal grounds:
- managing your account,
- processing your orders,
- delivering goods and services to you,
- organising after-sales service,
- making the website easily accessible (by means of cookies),
- communication for direct marketing purposes (e.g. a newsletter),
- being able to call or e-mail you if this is necessary to perform our services,
- informing you about changes to our services and products,
- analysing your behaviour on the website in order to improve the website and tailor the range of products and services to your preferences,
- the processing of personal data if we are legally obliged to do so, such as data that we need for our tax returns.
What personal data do we process?
For the above objectives, we may request, collect and process the following personal data from you:
- Personal identity information: surname, first name, address, phone number, e-mail
- History of purchases, outstanding invoices, payment information (to the extent that this relates to natural persons)
- Information about the web pages that an IP address visits
- Data left on our website
We use the collected data only for the purposes for which we obtained the data.
It is not intended that our website and/or service will collect data on website visitors under the age of 16 unless they have permission from parents or guardians. However, we cannot verify whether a visitor is over 16. We therefore advise parents to be involved in their children's online activities in order to prevent data about children being collected without parental consent. If you believe that we have collected personal information about a minor without that consent, please contact us via firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will delete this information.

- maintaining the internet environment (web hosting),
- providing IT infrastructure (e.g. IT network, etc.).
We never pass on personal data to other parties with whom we have not concluded a processing agreement. We do of course make the necessary arrangements with these parties (processors) to guarantee the security of your personal data.
Otherwise, we will not pass on the information you provide to third parties, unless required and permitted by law.
We may also share personal data with third parties if you give us consent for this. You have the right to revoke this consent at any time, without prejudice to the legality of the processing for its withdrawal.
We do not provide personal data to parties established outside the EU.
How long we retain personal data
