Article 3 - Processing Purposes
3.1. General purposes:
Kadanza shall use the personal data collected from you exclusively for the following purposes:
You are not obliged to provide your personal data, but do be aware that the provision of certain services becomes impossible if you refuse processing.
3.2. Direct marketing:
Your personal data may be used for direct marketing, provided that you have given additional and express consent ("opt-in") or provided that you are an existing customer, to whom we only advertise related goods or services, in which case we have a legitimate interest.
If you are already included on our distribution list for the receipt of marketing material on paper and/or electronically, Kadanza may use your data to send marketing and other material related to Kadanza, its products and/or services. Kadanza may use the information you provide to update documents stored by Kadanza.
This consent may be revoked at any time, without justification and free of charge by, for example, by clicking on the unsubscribe link provided for this purpose at the bottom of every promotional e-mail message.
3.3. Transfer to third parties:
In certain cases, Kadanza shall be required to pass on your data to third parties. In such cases, Kadanza shall make reasonable efforts to inform you in advance of its plans to disclose your data to the aforementioned third party, but you also acknowledge that this is not always technically or commercially feasible. In any case, Kadanza may share your data with our technical services provider, as well as with our accountant, lawyer and other administrative partners.
Should one of our partners be outside the EU or if for some reason your data must leave the EU, Kadanza shall ensure that these data exports are only carried out in accordance with the relevant European and Belgian legislation and, in particular, shall make use of the European Commission's Standard Contracts Clauses on export data security where necessary.
Kadanza shall not sell, rent, distribute or make your personal data commercially available to third parties in any other way, except as described above or with your prior consent.
In the event of the complete or partial reorganisation or transfer of Kadanza's activities, involving the reorganisation, transfer, or termination of its activities, or in the event of bankruptcy, your data may need to be transferred to new entities or third parties charged with carrying out Kadanza's business activities or to whom Kadanza's business activities are transferred, either in whole or in part.
3.4. Legal requirements:
Very occasionally, Kadanza may be forced to disclose your personal data under a court order or to comply with other mandatory laws or regulations. Kadanza shall make reasonable efforts to inform you in advance, unless restricted from doing so by law.
Article 4 - Processing period
The personal data shall be stored and processed by us for a period that is necessary to achieve the purposes of the processing and depending on your contractual relationship with Kadanza.
