By accessing and using the website you explicitly agree to the following our general terms and conditions.

Personal data that we collect

Your privacy is important to us. Although most information on this site is available without having to provide personal information, it is possible that the user may be asked for it.

We only collect and process information that you provide to us by:

  • filling in a form on our site
  • email, telephone or contacting us in any different way

From those two ways we get your email and name but it’s possible that we need more information as soon as we want to collaborate.

How we use personal data

We only use your data to send you what you have requested or inform you on the activities of Ostend Science Park and his shareholder.

Through our online forms you can:

  • subscribe to our events or request information about it
  • order services or products
  • register for one of events or request information about it
  • register to stay informed of new job opportunities

These are the purposes for which we use your data. We may also contact you for a customer survey or to provide you with information about additional or related products and services.

There are also things that we explicitly don’t do: we never pass your details on to other organizations. We only use the information internally. In exceptional situations, a law or court order requires us to pass on information. This counts for every company.

For certain activities we use third-party tools such as Google Analytics, Combell & Campaign Monitor. These are not “third party recipients” but processors.

We do not store the data longer than necessary for the purposes we just described.

Data protection

The law requires us to implement the necessary safety measures. This way we avoid the loss, unlawful use or change of personal data.

Your rights

You are a “data subject” for privacy legislation. Each data subject has the rights below:

  • Insight: Would you like to know what we safe about you? You have the right to know so feel free to contact us.
  • Correction: Do we have incorrect information about you? An error in your address? In your name? Something else? You have the right to improve your data or have it corrected. This can be done in every mailing by clicking on “adjust your preferences”.
  • Resistance: You want to remain in our database, but you don’t want us to contact you? Please tell us about it and we will adjust your contact preference.
  • Storage: If you invoke this 4th right, then we may only store your data and not use it.
  • Right to be forgotten: Do you want to be completely deleted from our database? And not just limit the processing and contact options. Please note that this right is no guaranty that you will stay out of our data base. If you enter it again we will have no previous settings related to your data.
  • Profiling (or automated processing of personal data): We do not apply profiling. If we did, you have the right to ask us not to do that with your data or to get the opportunity to discuss the effect of that profiling with a real employee.
  • Data transfer: You may ask us to transfer the data you have given us so that you can share it with someone else. This is about the data that you gave us yourself.

You have the right to make a complaint about our privacy policy. We comply 100% correctly with the law in our privacy policy. You can also report this to the privacy commission.

Do you want to invoke one of the above rights? Let us know.
