  • Our affiliated companies if necessary;
  • The competent authorities.

The persons working for these third parties only have access to the personal data strictly necessary for the performance of their tasks.

Transfer of personal data to countries outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”)

If we cooperate with third parties established in countries outside the EEA that do not provide an appropriate level of protection for your personal data, we will impose contractual obligations on them, approved by a competent authority and offering an appropriate level of protection of your personal data. If you wish to receive a copy of these contractual obligations, please send an e-mail to data.protection.be@engie.com. We reserve the right to remove any confidential information and any information that is not relevant to you from such a copy.

Legal ground for the processing of your personal data

We only process your personal data when:

  • The processing is necessary to perform your contract or to take pre-contractual measures at your request;
  • The processing is necessary for the legitimate interest of LODGE.co (for example, to send messages to our clients or visitors);
  • You have given your consent. In this case, you can always withdraw your consent; and
  • The processing is necessary to comply with our statutory or regulatory obligations (for instance within the scope of judicial inquiries or requests for information of public authorities).

How long do we keep your personal data?

Your personal data are not kept longer than necessary for the purposes for which they were collected. The retention period may thus differ according to the purpose.

We keep your contract data for 10 years following the termination of your contract based on legal considerations in order to retain certain data as proof in the event of disputes. Certain data of former client may be used for a period of 4 years following the termination of the contract in order to recognise the former client and keep him informed of new products and services of LODGE.co, unless the customer opposes such use. We keep data related to the access register for 1 year.

Under certain conditions, you will benefit from the following rights with regard to your personal data collected by LODGE.co:
