Privacy

Your personal data

No data will be processed during the visit of this site unless you ask a question or fill in the contact form. In that case, the data sent through the contact form will be processed by us to be able to contact you. We may use your data to send newsletters or information towards you, if your permission is given via email or standard correspondence. During every communication, the opportunity to stop the service provided by Comed will be offered. Furthermore, data processed through direct contacts with you are also processed. These data are not processed systematically, but are maintained to be able to contact you. In these circumstances the processing is based on the contractual relationship or on the preliminary contacts.

If you do not wish so, it is sufficient to communicate this by responding via a response to the message or througout the contact form.

A number of cookies have been placed on the website of Comed with the sole purpose that visiting the site is perfectly possible and allows you to communicate via the online form.

The law on processing personal data offers you the possibility to access your personal data and to improve them, if necessary. You may contact us directly through the online contact form.

If you are not satisfied with the way in which we handle your data, you can contact the Privacy Commission, Drukpersstraat 35, 1000 Brussels, commission@privacycommission.be

What is a cookie

Cookies are small files which are stored on a user’s computer. They are designed to hold a modest amount of data specific to a particular client and website, and can be accessed either by the web server or the client computer. This allows the server to deliver a page tailored to a particular user, or the page itself can contain some script which is aware of the data in the cookie and so is able to carry information from one visit to the website (or related site) to the next.

When are cookies created

Writing data to a cookie is usually done when a new webpage is loaded – for example after a ‘submit’ button is pressed the data handling page would be responsible for storing the values in a cookie. If the user has elected to disable cookies then the write operation will fail, and subsequent sites which rely on the cookie will either have to take a default action, or prompt the user to re-enter the information that would have been stored in the cookie.
