PRIVACY STATEMENT FOR BUSINESS PARTNERS
This privacy statement aims to inform our business partners about the processing of their personal data by us. The current, valid version will always be available on our website.
The controller is the natural or legal person who determines why your personal data are processed and the manner in which they are processed.
The various companies in the Milcobel Group (Milcobel or We) are joint controllers. A full list of Milcobel companies can be found at the end of this privacy statement, together with their full addresses.

Milcobel will inform you in advance if they intend to process your personal data for purposes other than those indicated in this privacy statement.
Where Milcobel processes your Personal Data on the basis of your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. This withdrawal will not affect the lawfulness of the processing of personal data, based on your consent, prior to the withdrawal of consent.
Where Milcobel processes your Personal Data on the basis of its legitimate interest, this means Milcobel has determined, after balancing the interests, that the identified interest outweighs . If you would like more information on the balancing of interests, please contact email@example.com directly.
Where Milcobel processes your Personal Data for the purposes cited because it is necessary for the performance of the agreement you have with Milcobel, Milcobel cannot provide those services for those purposes without processing those Personal Data.
Retention of your personal data
In general, your personal data will be kept for as long as necessary to fulfil the above purposes. This means, in most cases, that your personal data will be kept for the duration of the agreement as a customer, supplier and/or subcontractor, with a minimum period of 10 years (unless the law would impose a shorter period for specific data), possibly extended by the term of legal proceedings.
Sharing of your personal data
For the purpose of qualitative and efficient processing of personal data, we may enter into agreements with third parties to carry out processing on our behalf and only in accordance with our instructions. For example, customer data may be shared with transport companies in charge of delivering the products. Service providers to which your personal data is transferred are bound by specific agreements and are obliged to keep your personal data safe.
Moreover, in fulfilment of our legal obligations, we may share your personal data with customs authorities. Disputes and other incidents may also result in your personal data being shared with the police and other judicial authorities in exceptional circumstances.
Within the framework of internal reporting within Milcobel, your personal data may also be shared with other intra-group companies.
When and to the extent that Milcobel would be the subject of a potential sale, your personal data may also be shared with potential acquirers as part of a customary pre-sale due diligence process.
Cross-border transfer of personal data
Your Personal Data will only be processed within the European Economic Area (EEA). If this does happen, Milcobel will take sufficient security measures to ensure that your personal data are adequately protected (including through the inclusion of standard provisions for the transfer of personal data). If you would like more information on any transfer of personal data, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org directly.
You have the right to request access to your personal data and to have it corrected if it is incorrect. You also have the right to request the erasure of your personal data when it is no longer relevant. Despite the fact that you have the right to request to have your personal data erased, we may need to retain certain personal data for the performance of the contract or because of a legal obligation to keep certain data.
In addition, you have the right to object to the processing of your personal data for legitimate personal reasons and to request that processing be restricted in specific circumstances.
Finally, you also have the right to obtain the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, common and machine-readable form (data portability).
Where the processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw that consent at any time.
If you have any questions or concerns about this privacy statement, if you have any concerns about the processing of your personal data as explained above or if you wish to exercise your rights as explained above, you can contact us by sending an e-mail to email@example.com, which is the single point of contact.
Finally, note that you have the right to lodge a complaint regarding the processing of your personal data with the Belgian supervisory authority: Data protection authority Printing Press Street 35, 1000 Brussels (www.gegevensbeschermingsautoriteit.be).
We may change the provisions of this privacy notice. We will announce each new version.
