  • no professional advice (for specific advice you will have to consult the appropriate Centexbel-VKC expert).

We aim at preventing interruptions by technical malfunctions as much as possible. Some data or information on our site may be created in files or formats that are not flawless; we cannot guarantee that our service will never be interrupted nor that it will not be affected by any technical problems. Centexbel-VKC cannot be held responsible for problems due to using the site or any other external sites linked to it.

By excluding this responsibility we are not trying to limit Centexbel-VKC's responsibility in violation of the requirements contained in the applicable national legislation, nor to exclude its responsibilities for these matters that cannot be excluded by virtue of this legislation.


Processing of personal data

Information collected

On some parts of the website, you may be asked to provide some limited personal information in order to enable the provision of certain services (e.g. contact, registration to event…). Centexbel may store this information manually or electronically. Information provided will be kept for as long as is necessary to fulfil that purpose.

We may also collect information about your computer, including where available your IP address, operating system and browser type, for system administration and to report aggregate information to our webmasters. This is statistical data about our users' browsing actions and patterns which does not identify any individual and allows us to ensure that content from our site is presented in the most effective manner for you and for your computer.

Personal information provided to Centexbel by you will only be used for the purposes stated when the information is requested.
