Other tracking technologies – such as beacons, tags and scripts – are also used in order to collect and follow data and to improve and analyse our Service.

Examples of cookies that we use:

Processing and saving data

We process the personal data that you provide via the website in order to be able to offer you a good service. In this way we can monitor your candidacy, inform you about our services and activities and offer an answer to possible inquiries.

Your personal data remain within our company. The personal data collected by us will be used exclusively in order to fulfil our obligations, or for some other purpose on the strict condition that you expressly consent to this.

We can pass on your personal data to any legal successors and associated enterprises such as sister companies or customers for the same purposes as mentioned in this privacy statement and with your consent. We shall ensure that they, just like ourselves, handle your data securely and respectfully.

We retain your personal data for as long as is necessary in order to achieve the purpose for which we collect them. The retention period can thus differ depending on the purpose. Your personal data are in any event kept in accordance with the specific legislation, as well as prescription periods that oblige us to keep your personal data for a longer time.

Accessing or correcting data or having data removed

As a user, you have the right to obtain, receive and inspect information about your stored personal data. If necessary, you can also request that your data be supplemented, changed or removed. Your personal data will be removed unless we are legally obliged to retain the information.

You can make a request for these actions by sending an e-mail to info@qbd.eu. Quality by Design will respond to your request within 30 days.

Transferring data

Your data, including Personal data, can be transferred to — and saved on — computers that are located outside the territorial jurisdiction of your province, country or some other government authority where the data protection laws can differ from those in your jurisdiction.

Note that, if you are located outside of Belgium and you provide data to us, we transfer these data, including Personal data, to Belgium and process them there.

Your acceptance of this Privacy Policy, followed by your submission of such data, indicate that you consent to this transfer.

Quality by Design will take all reasonably necessary steps in order to ensure that your data are handled securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy and that your personal data are never transferred to an organisation or country that has not introduced an adequate system of controls, i.e. ones that effectively guarantee the security of your data and other personal data.

  • Comply with a statutory obligation
  • Protect and defend the rights and property of Quality by Design
  • Prevent or investigate possible abuses relating to the Service
  • Protect the personal safety of users of the Service or the public
  • Protect against incurring legal liability

Security of data

The security of your data is important for us, but remember that absolutely no method of transmission via the internet or electronic method of storage is 100% secure. Although we strive to apply commercially acceptable methods in order to protect your Personal data, we cannot guarantee absolute security.

Service providers

We can hire outside companies and persons in order to simplify our Service (“Service Providers”), to provide the Service on our behalf, to perform services within the framework of our Service, or to help us analyse how our Service is being used.

These external parties only have access to your Personal data in order to perform these tasks on our behalf and they may not disclose your Personal data to others or use them for any other purposes.

Links to other sites

Our Service can include links to other sites that are not administered by us. When you click on a link of an external party you are taken to the site of that external party. We strongly recommend that you verify the Privacy policy of each site that you visit.
