In this privacy statement Decomecc NV (also referred to hereafter as “Decomecc”, “we”, “us” or “our”) wants to explain how we process your personal data when you visit (hereafter called the “website”) or make use of its services and features. We are dedicated to protecting the confidentiality and privacy of information entrusted to us. As part of this fundamental obligation, we are committed to the appropriate protection and use of personal data (also referred to as “personal information”). We respect your privacy and process your personal information only within the purposes for which you have provided them and in accordance with the current privacy legislation. Personal data includes all information that relates to an identified or identifiable natural person such as for example your first and last name. Please review this privacy statement (“Privacy Statement”) to learn more about how we collect, use, share, protect and process the personal data that we have obtained, and about your rights in this regard.

1. Collection and use of personal information

1.1. Type of personal data that we process

Decomecc obtains your personal data because you use our services and/or because you provide these to us yourself. By registering and/or submitting personal data to Decomecc, you are giving your explicit consent to us, so that we may use this data in accordance with this Privacy Statement. Your personal data is not used for other purposes, unless we obtain your permission, or unless otherwise required or permitted by law or professional standards. For example, if you buy one of our services, we will use the information to contact you or to deliver services and goods to you. If you send us a curriculum vitae to apply for a position with Decomecc, we will use the information that you provide to match you with available job opportunities.

1.2. Special and/or sensitive data we process

Our website and/or service does not have the intention to collect data about website visitors who are younger than 18 years of age, unless they have permission from their parents or a guardian. However, we cannot check whether a visitor is over 18 years of age. We therefore recommend that parents are involved in their children’s online activities in order to prevent data from being collected about children without parental consent. If you believe that we have collected personal information about a minor without that consent, please contact us at and we will delete that information.

1.3. Legal grounds we have to use your personal data

Decomecc generally collects only the personal data necessary to fulfill your request. Where additional data is sought, you will be notified of this at the point of collection. The applicable legislation allows us to process personal data, so long as we have a processing ground under the law to do so. It also requires us to tell you what those grounds are. As a result, when we process your personal data, we will rely on one of the following legal grounds for processing:

• Performance of a contract: this is when the processing of your personal data is necessary in order to perform our obligations under a contract or the intention to enter into a contract;
• Legal obligation: this is when we are required to process your personal data in order to comply with a legal obligation, such as keeping records for tax purposes or providing information to a public body or law enforcement agency;
• Legitimate interests: we may process data about you where it is in our legitimate interest in running a lawful business to do so in order to further that business, so long as it doesn’t outweigh your interests; or
• Your consent: we may occasionally ask you for specific permission to process some of your personal data, and we will only process your personal data in this way if you agree to us doing so. You may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting Decomecc at

1.4. Purposes for which your personal data will be processed

We will only process your personal data for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes and we will not process your personal data further in a way that is incompatible with those purposes. This purpose can be the execution of an engagement, the improvement of your visit on our website or portals, the improvement of our products and services more generally, the offering of services or applications, marketing communications and actions, web personalization, direct marketing, web analytics, etc. The purpose of each processing of your personal data will be clearly defined in the privacy notice.
