Personal data is information that allows WISER HARE to identify you as a natural person, regardless of whether we actually do this. You are identifiable as soon as possible to create a direct or indirect link between one or more data and you as a natural person. 

We only use and process your personal data in accordance with the GDPR and any replacement legislation or any similar regulation under any applicable law and any regulatory requirements or codes of practice governing the use, storage or transmission of personal data. Every reference in this Privacy Policy to the ‘GDPR’ refers to the Regulation of 27 April 2016 on the Protection of Natural Persons with regard to the Processing of Personal Data and on the Free Movement of such Data (General Data Protection Regulation).

Through this Privacy Policy, every User of the Website is informed of the processing activities WISER HARE may carry out with his or her personal data. WISER HARE reserves the right to modify this Privacy Policy at all times. Every substantial change will be clearly communicated to the User. We advise you to consult this document regularly.

Controller

WISER HARE is responsible for the processing and decides alone or in cooperation with others which personal data are being collected as well as the purposes and the technical and organisational means with regard to the processing of those personal data.

WISER HARE is free to rely on data processors. A processor is a natural or legal person who processes your personal data upon request and on behalf of the data controller. The processor is required to ensure the security and confidentiality of the data. The processor shall always act on the instructions of the data controller.

WISER HARE relies on the following categories of “processors”:

  • Companies we have engaged for marketing purposes;
  • Companies we have engaged for hosting purposes;
  • Companies we have engaged for administrative purposes;
  • Companies we have engaged for communication purposes;
  • Companies we have engaged for statistical purposes;
  • Companies we have engaged for payment purposes.

On what legal grounds are my data processed?

In accordance with the GDPR, we process personal data on the following legal grounds:

  • Based on the execution of the contract agreed upon with you or the execution of pre-contractual steps taken at your request; or
  • Based on compliance with legal or regulatory provisions with regard to the management of the contractual relationship, invoicing in particular;
  • Based on our legitimate interest in sending information and newsletters to our customers;
  • Based on your consent to send promotional offers (direct marketing).

Which personal data are being processed?

WISER HARE commits to only collect and process adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for the purposes for which they are processed. The following categories of personal data are processed by WISER HARE:

  • Personal identification data (name, first name, address, login details);
  • Contact details (telephone number and e-mail address);
  • Financial identification data (bank details);
  • Electronic identification data (IP address, location, cookies);

This data is collected at the time of your registration on the Website and when you use our services. Other personal data may be collected later, e.g. in the context of our after-sales. These data are necessary for the provision of WISER HARE services. The amount of personal data collected depends on your use of the Website and the website’s functionalities.

We also use cookies to recognise the User and to offer the User a personalised user experience, to remember technical choices (for example, language choices or a shopping cart), and to detect and correct any errors which might be present on the Website.

For more information concerning the use of cookies, we kindly refer you to our Cookie Policy.

For which purposes are my personal data being used?

WISER HARE collects your personal data for the sole purpose of offering every User of our a safe, optimised and personal user experience of our Website and the offered services. The collection of personal data becomes more extensive as the User makes more intensive use of our Website and our online services. WISER HARE reserves the right to suspend or cancel certain operations if personal data is missing, incorrect or incomplete.

The processing of your personal data is essential for the proper functioning of the Website and the provision of associated services. WISER HARE commits to process your personal data for the following purposes solely:

  • Customer management: customer administration, order management, deliveries, invoicing, checking creditworthiness, support, complaint monitoring and sending newsletters.
  • Dispute management.
  • Protection against fraud and infringements.
  • Personalised marketing and advertising if you have expressly agreed to it. In that case, you are free to withdraw your consent at any time.

When visiting the website of WISER HARE, some data are being collected for statistical purposes. Such data is necessary to optimise your user experience. These data are IP address, probable location of consultation, hour and day of the consultation and the pages which are being consulted. When you visit the Website, you explicitly agree to this collection of data for statistical purposes.

The User provides the personal data to WISER HARE himself and can therefore exercise some control. When certain data is incomplete or apparently incorrect, the User has the right to postpone some expected actions temporarily or permanently.

Who receives your personal data?

Your personal data are processed for internal use within WISER HARE only. Your personal data will not be sold, passed on or communicated to any third parties, except in case you have given us your explicit prior consent.

How long do we store your personal data?

Your data is stored as long as necessary to achieve the ends pursued. They will be erased from our database as soon as they are no longer necessary for the ends pursued or if you validly exercise your right to erasure.

What are my rights?

Guarantee of a legitimate and secure process of your personal data

Your personal data are always processed for the legitimate purposes explained in point 5. They are collected and processed in an appropriate, relevant and non-excessive manner and are not kept longer than necessary to achieve the intended purposes.

Right to access

If you can prove your identity, you have the right to obtain information about the processing of your data. Thus, you have the right to know the purposes of the processing, the categories of data concerned, the categories of recipients to whom the data are transmitted, the criteria used to determine the data retention period, and the rights that you can exercise on your data.

Right to rectification of your personal data

Inaccurate or incomplete personal data may be corrected. It is primarily the User’s responsibility to make the necessary changes in his “user area” himself, but you can also request us in writing.

Right to erasure (or “right to be forgotten”)

You also have the right to obtain the erasure of your personal data under the following assumptions:

  • Your personal data are no longer necessary for the intended purposes;
  • You withdraw your consent to the processing, and there is no other legal ground for processing;
  • You have validly exercised your right of opposition;
  • Your data has been illegally processed;
  • Your data must be deleted to comply with a legal obligation.

The deletion of data is mainly related to visibility; it is possible that the deleted data are still temporarily stored.

Right to limitation of processing

In certain cases, you have the right to request the limitation of the processing of your personal data, especially in case of dispute as to the accuracy of the data, if the data are necessary for the context of legal proceedings or the time required to WISER HARE to verify that you can validly exercise your right to erasure.

Right to object

You have the right to object at any time to the processing of your personal data for direct marketing purposes. WISER HARE will stop processing your personal data unless it can demonstrate that there are compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which prevail over your right to object.

Right to data portability

You have the right to obtain any personal data which you have provided us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format. At your request, this data may be transferred to another provider unless it is technically impossible.

Right to withdraw your consent

You may withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time, for example, for direct marketing purposes.

How to exercise my rights?

If you wish to exercise your rights, you must send a written request and proof of identity by registered mail to WISER HARE, “Avenue du Frioul 36 boîte 31, 1140 Evere, Belgium” or by email to “contact@wiserhare.be”. We will respond as soon as possible and no later than one (1) month after receipt of the request.
