  1. Privacy policy

3.1 Purpose of this privacy policy

CENTRALE for contemporary art sets great store by respecting your privacy and protecting your personal data. The purpose of this privacy policy is to inform you about the way we process your personal data.

If you have any questions or remarks about this privacy policy or the protection of your personal data by CENTRALE, then please do not hesitate to contact us through the channels mentioned in point 4 (Contact details of the non-profit association Bruxelles-Musées-Expositions).

3.2 What personal information do we use?

3.2.1 Information you provide us with

If you would like to receive information that we distribute on a regular basis, you expressly consent to the storage and use of any personal data that you provide to us or you confirm this via the form on our website or the form that we send you by e-mail for confirmation.

3.2.2 Cookies

This website makes use of cookies. A cookie is a small file that your laptop or device stores when you visit a website. This type of file can recognise you as a user of the site during your next visits, and can therefore make navigating our site even easier for you. A cookie can only identify a computer, not a person.


3.3 Why and on what basis do we use your personal data?

3.3.1 Data that you provide to us

We may use the data that you pass on to us via our form to send you newsletters and/or other information which:

  • keeps you informed about news from CENTRALE;
  • invites you to events organised by CENTRALE or its partners;
  • allows us to comply with our legal obligations.

On our newsletter form (offered by ClickDimensions), you can indicate the specific information that you wish to receive from CENTRALE. You can adjust these preferences at any time.

This information must be processed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation, which is deemed binding. By making use of a service that requires the use of your information, you are, in fact, indirectly consenting to your information being processed for the service in question.

Moreover, a website may ask you to give your consent explicitly (via a check box, for example) as an additional confirmation of the basic provision quoted in the paragraph above.

3.3.2 Cookies

We distinguish between functional and non-functional cookies:

  • Functional cookies are necessary for the internet site to work properly. They ensure that you are recognised as a user each time you visit our website.

These data must be processed in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation, which is deemed binding. By visiting our site, you indirectly allow the use of cookies needed for the site to work properly.

  • The non-functional cookies are not necessary for the internet site to function properly. For example, we store analytical cookies. These enable us to find out which parts of our website you visit most frequently and which parts need improvement.

For these cookies, we get your explicit permission via the ‘cookie policy’ banner that is shown to you when you visit the site.

  • Our website also uses third-party cookies, which help us assess the effectiveness of our campaigns. In addition, they are used for communication and marketing purposes, to show you advertisements on social media or to show you information according to your interests on our website or while navigating on the web.

For these cookies, we get your explicit permission through the banner ‘cookie policy’ which is shown to you when you visit the site.

You can block or manage the non-functional cookies through the settings of your browser. In addition, you can delete the cookies installed on your computer at any time. The steps you need to take to do this depend on your browser. If you block and/or delete cookies, you may no longer be able to enjoy all the possibilities offered by our site.

3.4 To whom do we pass on your personal data?

In order to maintain and improve our services, we sometimes call on third parties, such as software developers and IT service providers. Your personal data may, therefore, be given to third parties or viewed by them, if this proves necessary to render the services. We enter into an agreement with these third parties to ensure that your personal data are only used in accordance with the instructions of CENTRALE and with the same protection and confidentiality. CENTRALE remains responsible for the use of your data by third parties at all times.

At the request of authorities or to comply with our legal obligations, certain personal data may be transmitted to competent authorities, for example in the context of legal proceedings or investigations/judicial information.

3.5 How long do we keep our data?

We do not keep your personal data longer than is necessary for the purposes for which they were collected (see section 3.3.2). In addition, we delete your data as soon as possible if you request this via the e-mail address mentioned in section 4. See table on Cookie Policy.

3.6 Withdrawal of consent and other rights in relation to your personal data

In relation to your personal data, you always have the right to:

  • withdraw your consent to the use of your personal data in whole or in part:
    • by deleting one, several or all of the indicated preferences for receiving information from CENTRALE; and/or
    • by modifying the cookie settings of your browser (see section 3.3.2);
  • ask to access your personal data;
  • ask to correct your personal data;

3.7 Protection of your personal data

CENTRALE makes every effort to protect your personal data from loss, unauthorised access, misuse and other unwanted actions. We use appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure that we use your data in accordance with the requirements of national and European legislation. In doing so, we can ensure that your rights are protected.
