2. COLLECTED (PERSONAL) DATA

BCCA stores the data disclosed by the users. The (personal) data collected are: first and last name, date of birth, place of birth, position/profession, telephone number, address, and e-mail address. Furthermore, BCCA also stores the data concerning its users' clients and those disclosed by its users for the purpose of the provision of services by BCCA. Such data are personal (name, address, telephone, etc.) or not (for instance hours during which the client is available).

3. DATA INCLUDED IN REPORTS OR OTHER DOCUMENTS

BCCA reserves the right to process the data and results of a report, certificate or any other analysis carried out for or at the request of a client of BCCA as a part of a general database or of another data system.

4. LEGAL BASE

As far as the user has entered into an agreement with BCCA or intends to enter into an agreement with BCCA (e.g, because the user needs to be a qualified airtightness tester or ventilation reporter), the user acknowledges and accepts that the processing of his (personal) data is necessary for entering into and/or performing such an agreement. The user acknowledges that the provision of personal data is a necessary condition in order to enter into the agreement. As far as the user is not someone who entered into or intends to enter into an agreement on his own with BCCA (e.g, because the user is a co-worker of a client of BCCA), the user gives his explicit approval for the processing of his personal data by BCCA in accordance with this privacy policy. In this case, the user has the right to withdraw consent at any time. The user is also aware that using BCCA's applications and websites requires him to provide BCCA with his personal data , and that he will gain no access to such applications and websites if such data are not provided.

5. NEWSLETTER

BCCA stores the e-mail addresses disclosed by the user. Upon prior permission of the user, BCCA can send newsletters to the user. However, the user can always indicate that he no longer wishes to receive such messages. The authorisation to send such messages is explicitly requested when the user introduces his e-mail address for the first time. Moreover, each e-mail contains the possibility for the user to exercise his right to object. If one has registered several e-mail addresses, he could have to exercise his right to object for each of these addresses.

6. PURPOSE OF DATA PROCESSING

6.1 BCCA shall process the (personal) disclosed data for the following purposes:

- To provide access to the applications and websites of BCCA, and to identify people to ensure the good use of the applications, in accordance with the qualification of the concerned person;

- to publish certain data, among other things, recognitions, certificates and attestations issued by BCCA;
- to take measures to verify the (personal) data when logging on a BCCA website or web application, and to make the arrangements to secure these data;
- to draw up and provide (inspection) reports;
- to manage electronic payments and to fight fraud; and
- to inform users of recent changes and novelties implemented by BCCA or a company associated with BCCA, and for the provision of information that is relevant in the construction sector (for example through newsletters).

6.2 The disclosed (personal) data can be transferred to a company associated with BCCA or to a third party for the execution and completion of any agreement or to comply with a legal obligation or in case of legitimate interest.

7. RETENTION PERIOD

BCCA stores the (personal) data of the users for a 15-year period after commissioning of the project. Such (personal) data can be stored longer by BCCA if those (personal) data are necessary in another context. In such a situation, the user will be informed about the context.

8. RIGHTS OF THE USER

8.1 The user has a right of perusal and correction with regard to his (personal) data that are being processed in the BCCA files and applications. When the user exercises his right of correction, he can ask BCCA to no longer process his personal data for the period he needs to control the accuracy of such data. Upon explicit request from the user, BCCA shall integrally delete the user's personal data, except when such data are necessary for the performance of the agreement mentioned above, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims. When BCCA intends to erase the user's personal data, and the user does not want his personal data to be integrally erased, he can request BCCA to keep, but not further process, his personal data.

8.2 The user can exercise the rights mentioned above free of charge by contacting BCCA. He can send a dated and signed letter to BCCA, Aarlenstraat 53, 1040 Brussels, Belgium, f.a.o. the management or send an e-mail to mail@bcca.be, each time with a copy of his identity card (for identification purposes).

8.3 Should the user have complaints about BCCA's privacy policy, he has the right to lodge a complaint with the competent authorities.
