    ABC processes personal data in accordance with the purposes as stated under point 3.

    ABC will never store the data for longer than is necessary for the purpose for which the data has been collected, with due observance of the maximum statutory retention periods. If data no longer needs to be stored, all identifiable features or all data will be removed.

    For administrative reasons, ABC will archive your surname and first name, since it may not be possible to remove it from reports, attendances for training courses or attendance at meetings. The reason for this is that participation in training courses is also related to obtaining certain quality labels or diplomas that ABC must be able to consult at all times. Your personal data will of course not be actively updated anymore.

    ABC will retain your personal data in accordance with applicable statutory and limitation periods that may be in place.

  • 7. What rights can you exercise to guarantee the protection of your personal data?

    7.1. You can consult your data

    If you wish to inspect personal data processed by ABC about you, you may do so by exercising your right of inspection.

    ABC will provide you with as complete an overview as possible of the personal data stored about you, within a reasonable period of time. ABC can confirm now already that no special categories of personal data are retained (e.g. race, ethnic origin, sexual orientation data, etc.).

    7.2. You can have your data corrected

    If there are any changes to your personal data (e.g. name, address, e-mail address, etc.), kindly inform us so that we can correct or complete this data.

    7.3. You can have your data removed

    If you believe that ABC has processed specific personal data on an unlawful basis, i.e. without having a proper purpose, you may request that your personal data be deleted.

    ABC will in any event be required to retain limited personal data for legal provisions, quality labels or certificates where applicable.

    7.4. You can request that the processing of your personal data be restricted

    If your data is incorrect and you have requested that your personal data be amended or if you believe that ABC is processing your personal data on an unlawful basis, you may request a restriction on the processing of your personal data.

    This means that ABC may only continue to process your personal data with your permission. ABC may continue to store your personal data, but may not carry out any further processing without your consent, except in the context of legal proceedings, in order to protect natural or legal persons or for important reasons in the public interest.

    7.5. You may request to transfer your personal data directly to a third party

    If you wish, you may ask ABC to transfer the data that you provided to ABC to you or directly to a third party. However, the GDPR provides for a number of restrictions on this right, which means that it does not apply in all cases. This has to be examined on a case-by-case basis.

    7.6. You can refuse to have your data processed fully automatically

    Some data processing operations and processes are fully automated, without human intervention. You can indicate that this processing is not permitted.

    7.7. You can withdraw your consent
