2. Contact details of the data processing manager
Qualifio S.A. (hereinafter: “Qualifio”) having its registered office at Place de l’Université 16, 1348 Louvain-la-Neuve and being registered at the Banque-Carrefour des Entreprises under registration number (BE) 0822.741.924., is responsible for processing the personal data (hereinafter the “data”) that you provide to us directly on our site: www.qualifio.com.
3. What data do we gather, for what purposes, and on what legal basis?
3.1 The data we collect directly from you
We collect the data that you send us:
(i) via our Website, particularly when you use the “Request a demo” tab, or when you use a contact form.
We use this data (i.e.) your surname, forenames, e-mail addresses, telephone numbers, language, the city and country in which you live, your company name, its sector and the countries in which it operates, along with your position in your company) so that we can get back to you with the most relevant information possible. (consent)
Usually, items of data with an asterisk against them are mandatory. If this information is not provided, we shall not be able to get back to you about your request.
(ii) when you sign up for our “newsletter”
When you sign up for our newsletter, we use your e-mail address to keep you informed about our products and services, as well as to send you ideas for your forthcoming campaigns, to tell you about our customers’ typical experiences and successes, and also to let you know about market trends.
You can withdraw your consent at any time, either by writing to us or by clicking the “Unsubscribe” link that can be found in the e-mails that we send you.
(iii) on our website when you use the “Connection” tab
When you log onto our website, we use your data to give you access to Qualifio Manager, the Qualifio platform’s back office. When using Qualifio Manager, your data is used and stored in order to optimise your experience on the Qualifio platform in terms of access to your campaigns and statistics, administration of user rights, etc.
If you contact our Helpdesk (or vice versa), we shall use your surname, forename, e-mail address and company name in order to process your request and to provide you with the best possible service (fulfilment of the contract to which you are a signatory, or accomplishment of pre-contractual procedures).
Qualifio shall process your data only to the extent necessary for the purposes for which it was collected.
3.2 The data we collect when you interact with the site
4. How long do we keep your data for?
We keep your data for the period required to complete the activities for which it was gathered, but no longer than the limit stipulated by the applicable legislation.
5. Who can we send your data to?
In order to provide our services effectively, we may need to subcontract some tasks, in whole or in part, to technical subcontractors with whom we have entered into contracts (e.g. the subcontractors responsible for maintaining our infrastructure, IT security, hosting, marketing tools, helpdesk and others).
Qualifio requires its subcontractors to adhere to data protection legislation and to submit satisfactory guarantees on the implementation of appropriate technical and organisational measures. They are required to demonstrate that their processing system complies with current data protection legislation and that your rights are guaranteed.
We do not sell or in any way disclose to third parties the data that we gather about you. However, if we have a legal obligation, or if a court ruling requires us to do so, we shall pass on your data to the extent necessary to comply with this law or court ruling.
Under certain circumstances, our website and our apps will provide you with plug-ins for various social networks. If you choose to interact with social network sites such as Facebook or Twitter (for example by setting up an account), your activity on our site or via our apps will also be accessible on that social network site. If you are logged onto one of these social network sites during your visit to any of our sites or apps, or if you interact with any of the social network plug-ins, the social network site may also add this information to your profile on that network, depending on your privacy protection settings. If you want to prevent this type of data transfer, please log off your social network site before logging on to any of our sites or apps, or change the app privacy protection settings, if possible. Please read these social networks’ own privacy protection policies for further details on the collection and transmission of personal data, on your rights, and on how you can achieve a satisfactory degree of privacy protection.
We also use a third-party popup solution, WisePops, to display tailored messages to you and request some of your personal details during your navigation on qualifio.com/blog. You can find more information about the details WisePops collects on this page.
6. What rights do you have?

Please note that you are at all times obliged to ensure that the data you send us is accurate.
6.3 Right to be forgotten
When you no longer want your data to be processed and you meet the conditions to invoke the right of deletion under data protection law, we shall delete your data from our database.
6.4 Right of portability
Where necessary, you also have the right to have your data transferred under the terms laid down in applicable data protection law.

6.6 Right of restriction of processing
Finally, you have the right to require Qualifio to restrict the processing of your data, as provided for in applicable data protection legislation.
7. Information regarding children
As a general rule, we do not intentionally gather personal information relating to children under 13 years of age. If we discover that we have inadvertently gathered information on children aged under 13 years of age, we shall take steps to delete the information as soon as possible, unless applicable law requires us to retain it.
When we know that a child is over 13 years of age but is considered to be a minor under applicable law, we shall obtain permission from the parents or guardian before using that child’s personal information.
8. Links to other websites and services
Our websites may contain links to third-party sites, and some of our services give you access to third-party services such as social networks.
We have no control over the way in which those sites and services process your personal information. We do not check these third-party sites and services, and we are not responsible for these third-party sites or services or their privacy protection practices. Please read the privacy statements on the third-party sites or services that you access via our sites or services.
We have introduced appropriate technical and organisational security rules designed to avoid the destruction, loss, falsification, amendment, unauthorised access to or accidental disclosure of data to third parties, together with any unauthorised processing of the data.
10. Limitation of liability clause
Qualifio’s liability shall be restricted to direct harm, to the exclusion of any indirect loss. Qualifio can never be held liable for harm deemed to be indirect such as, without this list being exhaustive, loss of data, financial or commercial loss, loss of profits, increased general costs, or disruption of planning or scheduling.
Moreover, Qualifio cannot be held liable for any harm arising from any unlawful manipulation of the data by third parties, such as data theft, introduction of viruses, hacking or any other IT malpractices.
We should also highlight the fact that links to our website may contain hypertext links and other references to other sites that we do not manage or control, to which these provisions do not apply. We are not responsible for the content of such websites or the offers, products or services that they contain. We recommend that you carefully read the privacy protection rules of each site that you visit, as those rules may differ from the rules set out here.
11. What happens in the event of disputes?
If you think that we have failed in any of our legal and/or contractual obligations, please send us an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We shall do everything we can to follow it up as soon as possible.
All complaints, claims or grievances should be submitted to Qualifio’s registered office.
If you are not satisfied with our response, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority.
12. Applicable law and competent courts
These provisions are to be governed, interpreted and fulfilled in accordance with the laws of Belgium. Belgian law alone shall apply in the event of disputes.
All disputes that cannot be settled amicably within a time limit of one month from their occurrence, unless this limit is extended by mutual agreement, may be brought by either party before the French language courts of the Walloon Brabant region. Those courts alone shall have jurisdiction.
13. Effective date
This policy was created and brought into force on February 1, 2018. We reserve the right to, entirely at our discretion, change or amend parts of this policy to add parts to it or to remove parts at any time. We will keep you updated of any such changes either by e-mail or via a notice on our website.
