Collection and use of personal data

Protecting the security and privacy of your personal data is important to Sustainability College Bruges (‘SCB’ or ‘we’). Therefore, SCB operates its website and services in compliance with applicable laws on data privacy protection and data security.

By using SCB website or otherwise providing SCB with personal information, you agree to us doing so in accordance with the terms of this Privacy Notice, Terms and Conditions as specified on the site and applicable data protection laws and regulations.

Accesses to our website are logged for the purpose of security analysis reports and to defend against cyber-attacks. With the exception of the IP address, no personal data is ever collected or used in this connection. IP addresses are analyzed only in the event of a cyber-attack. Log data is promptly deleted on a regular basis.

In addition, we collect personal data (e.g., names, addresses, telephone numbers, or e-mail addresses) in connection with the operation of our websites only when you have voluntarily provided such data to us (e.g., through registration, contact inquiries, surveys, etc.) and when we are entitled to process or use such data by virtue of permission granted by you or on the basis of a statutory provision. We may contact you regarding services which may be of interest to you, provided that you have given consent to do so or you have previously requested similar services from us and the communication is relevant or related to that prior request and made within any timeframe established by applicable laws in Belgium.

As a general rule, we use such data only for the purpose for which you divulged the data to us, such as to answer your inquiries, process your orders, or grant you access to certain information or offerings. We take all reasonable precautions to keep your personal information secure. Access to your personal information is restricted to prevent unauthorized access, modification or misuse and is only permitted among our employees and agents on a need-to-know basis. Please note that none of the personal data you have shared with us will be transferred to third parties not related to SCB or outside Belgium without your consent.

The website is designed and intended for use by adults (+18years). If the website is explored by younger audience, the person will need to obtain consent from a parent or guardian before sharing any personal data. If we discover that we have collected information from a child without consent from a parent or guardian where such consent should have been obtained, we will delete that information as soon as possible.
