    What are your rights regarding the processing of your personal data?

    You have certain legal rights regarding the processing of your personal information. Summary of these rights:

    • Information– You have the right to information about the processing of your personal data. This is the reason why we provide you with this Privacy Policy.
    • Access – You can ask access to the personal data we process about you.
    • Rectification– If your information is inaccurate or incomplete, you have the right to request the rectification of your information.
    • Deletion – Under certain circumstances, you have the right to request deletion of your information (for example when you think it has been processed illegally).
    • Transfer– You have the possibility to obtain, under certain circumstances, your information in a structured and machine readable form so you can reuse it for your own purposes.
    • Limitation of further use– Under certain circumstances, you can ask us to limit (further) use of your information. For example, when you dispute the correctness of some information, you can limit further processing of the data during the time Fluxys controls their correctness.

    For sure, we will reply as soon as possible to your request. If we need more than one month to respond to your demand, we will let you know.


    What if you do not want to share your personal information?

    If you do not want to share some personal data with Fluxys, or if you wish to exercise your right to deletion, limitation, objection or withdrawal of consent (see above), consequences will depend on the type of information and the purpose of processing. In some cases Fluxys will no longer be able to take your application into account, for example if you do not want us to register details about your professional experience in your application file.
