To allow you to use our products and services, we need your personal details. We also collect other personal information, such as data on payments and communication traffic. All these data are stored in our files for a specific length of time.
If you want to use our products and services, you have to provide us with personal details such as your first and last name, address, login, e-mail address, telephone number, mobile number, date of birth, language, and a copy of your identity card. Sometimes we also need other data, such as specific preferences and requirements relating to the service concerned.
We can collect your personal data in different ways: in person at a Proximus point-of-sale or when your identity card is scanned, by telephone via the customer service, in writing via order forms or text messages, and digitally via e-forms, when you chat with our chatbot or via our website, via the MyProximus app, when you use social media to contact us, when you use the Itsme app to identify yourself.
Each customer contact offers the possibility to collect personal data: e.g. when you order; participate in a survey, test or competition; call our customer service; identify yourself as a user of a Pay&Go card; register for a newsletter; or simply ask us for information.
You can always refuse to provide certain data, but this may mean you won't be able to use certain products or services, or that they won't function as they should.
We collect data on the way you use our products and services (fixed and mobile services, TV, etc.) and websites; data on the devices you use (type/brand) and on the communication traffic that flows over our network; and data on the devices (type/brand) which connect to your Wi-Fi network. Communication traffic can include called landlines and mobile numbers, the IMEI number of your mobile device, the date, time, duration and location of a communication or Internet connection, the amount of data you use, and the kind of mobile apps you use. We also collect data on your use of TV services (via the TV decoder as well as the Proximus Pickx app and website www.proximus.be/pickx/fr). Finally, we collect data on the quality and speed of the network and your Wi-Fi connection. We also store your billing and payment data.
We may use socio-demographic data and consumer information we purchase from specialized companies such as Bisnode Belgium.
Personal data are kept for up to 10 years after a person has ceased to be a Proximus customer. Shorter storage periods apply for certain categories of data, such as data on your communication traffic, which are kept for no more than 12 months.
The personal data we collect and use are stored in the files held by Proximus PLC under Belgian Public Law (27 bd du Roi Albert II, 1030 Brussels).
Your personal data may be used for different purposes. These can be of a technical, administrative, commercial or legal nature.
We need your personal data for different reasons, including for:
Proximus processes your data only if there is a legal basis for doing so, as laid down in the privacy regulations, or if:
Proximus has a legitimate (commercial) interest in processing and using your data:
We may share your personal data with our subsidiaries and third parties with whom we collaborate. If you want to be listed in our telephone directory and/or directory assistance service, we inform our internal department, Directory Information Services. If you pay for services from third parties via our bill, we can pass on your mobile number to said third parties. We may also have to provide your personal data to the Ombudsman's office if you submit a complaint there. And in some cases, Proximus has a legal obligation to provide data to government services.
We can make our databases accessible to third parties working for us and assisting us with our tasks and marketing activities, e.g. partners or call centers who sell Proximus services in our name and on our behalf, or specialized companies that deliver our IT services. Such third parties only have access to the data on a need-to-know basis, to enable them to perform their tasks on our behalf.
When you purchase a mobile device from Proximus, its identification number can be passed on to the supplier of the device for stock management purposes.
When you browse using your Proximus mobile phone subscription, or purchase the services of online third parties (e.g. mobile apps) and pay for them via our M-Pay service (billing by Proximus, who deposits the amount to the third party), we can pass on your mobile number (or the identification number created when you use the M-Pay service) to these third parties to enable the payment.
Proximus can enlist the services of subcontractors located outside the European Economic Area. Proximus only works with subcontractors from countries that the European Commission deems can guarantee a suitable level of protection, or with subcontractors bound by the standard provisions approved by the European Commission.
In addition, your personal data may be shared outside the European Economic Area if this is required for the delivery of the service you wish to use, e.g. when you call a number in a country outside the European Economic Area or visit a website hosted by servers outside this area.
If you submit a complaint to the Office of the Ombudsman for Telecommunications, we may have to disclose your data to the Ombudsman for the handling of your complaint.
We are required by law to disclose certain personal data to the emergency services when you place an emergency call. We also have a legal obligation to disclose certain personal data at the request of the judicial authorities in the context of a judicial inquiry, and at the request of the Belgian intelligence services, the Belgian Institute for Postal Services and Telecommunications, and the tax authorities.
Belgian emergency centers support AML. This means that during an emergency call, every phone with AML (i.e. most phones) can transmit the most accurate position possible to the emergency centers. The location information is only sent to the emergency centers when you call 112 or 101 (or the old number, 100, which is no longer promoted). The transmission of location data complies with Belgian law and is only used for efficiently locating an incident.
If you consent to have your landline and/or mobile number listed in the telephone guide and/or in the directory assistance file, we will pass on this data to Directory Information Services, a Proximus department which deals with the telephone directories and the 1207/1203 directory assistance service. You can ask for changes to your listing by calling the toll-free number 0800 98 022 (NL) or 0800 98 033 (FR) or by sending an e-mail to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
To correctly process your personal data, they are also made accessible to internal Proximus services and their employees where this is considered necessary for delivering the products or services, ensuring customer management, fulfilling accounting obligations, etc.
Proximus and its employees may not have knowledge of your communication traffic over our different networks. The only exception are phone calls to our customer service.
Messages sent over our network (landline and mobile phone calls, e-mails, text messages, Internet traffic, etc.), as well as the content of your browsing behavior on the Internet, are protected by the secrecy of telecommunications laws. This means that Proximus and its employees may not have knowledge of such content. Proximus has taken the necessary security measures and given strict instructions to its employees to respect the secrecy of telecommunications.
If you have an unlisted phone number for your landline or mobile service, your phone number will not be listed in the telephone directory or the directory assistance service. Your number will also be protected by the secrecy of telecommunications. Proximus employees may only process your unlisted number if this is needed to deliver the Proximus services.
Phone calls you make to our customer service may be recorded to serve as evidence in case of a dispute on a commercial transaction. These calls may also be recorded or listened to for quality control purposes.
In case of technical problems or to check the quality of its services, Proximus may need to look at the content of your traffic/communication to analyze what went wrong and solve the problem. Such interventions are limited to what is strictly necessary for detecting, analyzing and solving the problem.
The databases containing your personal data are secured. Updates guarantee a high protection level.
We take technical and organizational measures to protect the databases in which your data are stored against unauthorized access/use, theft or loss. Our security measures are regularly evaluated and updated to ensure that we can continue to provide a high protection level.
Here you will find a general overview of the technical and organizational measures taken by Proximus.
The personal data you provide and the personal data we collect via the decoder, app or website of Proximus TV are stored in our databases. We can process such data to improve our services, conduct market research, generate statistical reports, create user profiles, and offer personalized recommendations.
The TV decoder is equipped with software which registers and stores the operations performed with the decoder. The Proximus Pickx app and website contain similar functions.
All this data can be processed to:
If you prefer not to receive any information about our products, services or promotions via your TV screen, or don't want advertising on TV adapted to your profile, or don't want to receive any personalized recommendations relating to the TV services, you can find out how to indicate your preferences in the section "What are my privacy rights and how can I exercise them?".
In some cases, Proximus may disclose the collected data:
You can use the Proximus Pickx app when you are temporarily in an EU Member State other than Belgium, according to the European Regulation on portability, only if you are a resident of an EU Member State. Proximus therefore verifies your residence Member State when you conclude the TV app contract and during the performance of the contract. Within the limits of the European Regulation on portability, Proximus decides which verification methods it will use. The processing of personal data for this verification is limited to what is considered proportional. The personal data will not be kept longer than is required for the verification.
To respond to your needs more effectively, commercials can be adapted on some TV channels. For this, we create customer profiles based on your administrative data and viewing behavior. We can also purchase certain statistical data from a data supplier. We do not share your personal data with advertisers, who only receive anonymous statistical information. If you don't want to receive adapted TV advertising, you can change your privacy settings via MyProximus or the privacy settings on your TV.
The commercials on a number of TV channels that you watch via TV can be adapted to better reflect your potential interests and needs.
For this, Proximus creates a customer profile based on:
We do not share your individual data and customer profile with advertisers who run their advertisements on TV. These advertisers only receive anonymous, statistical information (number of people with a specific customer profile).
If you indicated via MyProximus or the customer service that you don't want adapted TV advertising, we will respect your choice. Your TV viewing behavior will no longer be used for adapted TV advertising or for creating your customer profile for TV advertising.
However, your TV viewing behavior will still be collected where this is required for billing purposes, reporting, and for the development of Proximus services. Your TV viewing behavior can also be used to keep you informed in a more personalized way about Proximus services, unless you objected to this when you set your privacy preference.
All our websites are freely accessible. However, to access certain parts or functions of our websites, you need an account with a login and password. When you visit a Proximus website, we register your connection data. If you are logged in with your MyProximus account, we can recognize you and adapt the content of our website to your profile. Your comments in evaluation tools on our websites can be shown anonymously on other websites, although you have to use a pseudonym when you leave a comment. We can also disclose data to third parties that we hire to track and analyze browsing behavior on our websites.
You can visit our websites (proximus.be, www.proximus.be/pickx/fr, proximus.com, skynet.be and m.skynet.be) without having to enter any personal data. Sometimes, certain parts or functions of our websites are only accessible after you enter the login and password of your account or subscription.
We register data about your connection to our websites and the software and devices you use to connect. This information can include your IP address, the time, the browser, the type and brand of device you use, and the pages you visit.
These data are used to generate anonymous statistics and improve the overall quality of our websites and service, thanks to the analysis of the browsing behavior of visitors on our websites.
If you log in to our websites using your MyProximus account, we can recognize you as a Proximus customer. We can then personalize some of our website content, partly on the basis of other data we have collected about you as a Proximus customer. For example, we can display information about products or services you do not yet use and which we think might interest you, rather than show you information about products and services you already know.
Partner technology may be used on our websites to allow you to evaluate our products and services. The personal data collected in this way are used to manage this evaluation service. Your comments may be displayed on other websites besides those of Proximus, without any mention of your personal data. In any event, you have to use a pseudonym when you leave a comment.
On our websites, we can use the services of third parties to track, analyze and report on browsing behavior (third party analytics). To this end, such third parties can collect anonymous data about your use of our websites, including your behavior on our websites. Such data enable us to track down any errors in our websites and determine how we can improve your user experience.
In only one case, your personal data may be collected using a partner's analysis tool. These personal data are solely used to see how users navigate on our websites and, based on this, to improve the user experience on the websites.
When you order a product or service on our website but don't complete your order (e.g. due to a technical problem), the personal data you entered before sending the order form can be used to temporarily save your digital shopping basket. We can send you an e-mail with a hyperlink to your shopping basket to make it easier for you to complete your order, if you wish to do so. If you don't reply to this e-mail within a reasonable time frame, your personal data and your shopping basket will be removed.
To function as it should, the MyProximus app needs to access personal data stored on your mobile device. Proximus uses the personal data on your device only where such data are necessary for the functionality of the app. In addition, Proximus collects data about your use of the MyProximus app in order to improve the app and adapt it to user needs. The personal data collected are kept for two years and are not shared with third parties for commercial purposes.
The MyProximus app only uses the following categories of personal data. The purpose for which the data are used is indicated for each category:
For the functionality of the MyProximus app and the analysis of its use, a small amount of data may have to be stored on your device. This concerns so-called functional and analytics cookies. These are small files which are stored on your device and are needed for the functionality of the app. You can't refuse them.
For the repair of infrastructure or devices, Proximus can collect personal data that can be useful or necessary for the repair.
If you do not delete the data stored on your device before bringing it in for repair, the competent repair service can access the data on your device during the repair. These data may have to be deleted during the repair and your device may have to be reset to the factory settings to enable the repair. If your device cannot be reset, the data will be destroyed.
If, when reporting a fault to Proximus, you have the possibility to use the "Visual Assistance" service, the photos and/or videos you send from your infrastructure, equipment, and cables will only be used to clear the fault remotely. The photos and videos are not stored; they are immediately deleted when the session ends.
To function as it should, the Epic app needs to access personal data stored on your mobile device. Proximus uses the personal data on your device only where such data are necessary for the functionality of the app. In addition, Proximus collects data about your use of the Epic app in order to improve the app and adapt it to user needs. The personal data collected are kept for two years and are not shared with third parties for commercial purposes.

The Play & Gold app collects various data that it needs to ensure the proper functioning of the app and game and to send you a gift when you win with the Play & Gold game.
The following personal data are processed when you use the Play & Gold app:
These personal data are kept for up to three months after you have ceased to be a Proximus customer.
If you have indicated in the Play&Gold app that you consent to geolocation data being collected for more personalized offers and gifts and/or for the personalization of advertising for various products and services shown on Proximus TV or on the Internet on websites that are part of, or collaborate with, the Proximus online advertising network, Proximus will collect, through your mobile phone's operating system, your GPS location data and your phone's advertising identifier (IDFA for Apple devices and AAID for Android devices).
The frequency of such data collection is adjusted depending on whether you and your device are on the move or not. When your device is on the move, location data is collected very frequently; when your device is not moving, the frequency is lower. Only if you have agreed to this will your location data also be collected when the Play&Gold app is not active.
If you have agreed to this, the location data collected will be used to supplement your Proximus customer profile with information about your shopping behavior, the means of transport you use, your interests (sports, culture, etc.), your family composition as far as it is possible to deduce this from your location data, and the location where you are likely to work.
If you have agreed to this, your location data will also be used to personalize a number of advertisements on Proximus TV or on websites that are part of, or collaborate with, the Proximus online advertising network. This means that certain advertisements may be replaced by advertisements for third-party products and services personalized on the basis of your profile.
Your location data or the information likely to be derived from it will only be used by Proximus itself and will not be shared with third parties, unless they work on behalf of Proximus. Parties working on behalf of Proximus are bound by strict contractual obligations regarding the processing of your data and they may only process these data on behalf of Proximus. The advertisers do not have access to your data, they only receive anonymous statistical information.
You may withdraw your consent at any time via the settings screen of the Play&Gold app.
As soon as the location data are used to update your profile, they are destroyed.
If you withdraw your consent or remove the Play&Gold app from your mobile phone, no more data will be collected. The data included in your profile will continue to exist for up to 3 years after you are no longer a Proximus customer, unless you have informed Proximus at the end of your contract that you no longer wish to receive commercial messages from Proximus.
Proximus requires that the user creates a MyProximus account prior to accessing this service. The data collected during the creation of the account is necessary in order to give access to the service. The "Family life" profile includes following mandatory pieces of information: the surname, first name and email address. The user has the possibility of completing his profile by adding other optional data (photos, videos, telephone number, gender, birthday, etc.).
The data that the user provides via the various shared tools of Family life will only be used the context of this provided service. Only members of the circle can see the information and content that the User shares. In addition to the shared information the User also has the possibility of creating private events in the "Calendar" tool and private tasks in the "TO DO list" tool. These private events will only be visible to the user and, if he/she wishes, by a limited number of members of the circle that he/she explicitly selects.
The username linked to a User is associated to every post he / she creates. A user (administrator or otherwise) can delete any post (message, photo, event, task, contact, ...) that he/she has posted. In the event that the posts are not explicitly removed prior a user leaving a circle or terminating the service, the username linked to the user will be removed from all posts they may have created. The user retains the possibility of deleting posts prior to leaving a circle or terminating the service.
User data is managed and processed as long as the user account remains active. In the event that the user decides to terminate this service, notably in the event of account termination, his "Family life" user profile will be removed from the date of deactivation. The removal of the "Family life" user profile is independent of his/her MyProximus account, which shall remain active, as it allows access to other services.
To set up an optimal Wi-Fi connection and provide support in case of problems with your Wi-Fi network, Proximus collects information via your modem about the devices connected on your Wi-Fi network, about all the connections set up with your Wi-Fi network, and about possible disruptions due to the presence of other Wi-Fi networks nearby. You must inform the users of your Wi-Fi network about this data collection.
Enjoy! is a Proximus loyalty program which allows you to benefit from advantages via contests and/or specific deals. It will also include some surprises. In order to inform you about the existence of a contest/deal which is relevant to you, or to properly select the appropriate surprise, Proximus will a.o. use your Proximus existing customer profile (as defined above) and the information about your activity on Enjoy!.
Personal data collected via Enjoy! (for example, the list of contests & deals in which you have participated, the surprises selected) are stored as part of the Enjoy! program. Proximus will use your contact information to inform you about contests, deals & surprises. Proximus might use your date of birth to surprise you with a gift.
Your contact information can be transferred to the partners of Enjoy! to deliver the rewards, for example, to register your name on a guest list for VIP access to a festival.
Based on your activity on Enjoy!, Proximus will identify your specific interests. Those preferences will be added to your Proximus existing customer profile. It will be used to inform you of the existence of contests & deals that may be of interest to you (by email, SMS and notification) and to offer you personalized surprises. This profile might also be used to personalize other marketing campaigns related to Proximus products and services. Your profile is not shared with third parties.
Via MyProximus, you can object at any time against the personal data collection in the context of Enjoy! and also receiving email from Enjoy!. When doing so, you will still have free access to Enjoy! and can still benefit from the Enjoy! contests & deals.
Data on the location of mobile phones in our network are grouped anonymously. On the basis of such grouped data, we can generate reports that show how many people are or were in a specific place. These reports are generated at the request of, for example, tourist services, cities and municipalities. We ensure that the reports do not disclose any individual information.
Location data are increasingly used (by tourist services, mobility managers in towns and municipalities, etc.) to generate reports on, for example, the number of people present in a particular place at a particular time.
Each activity of a mobile phone on Proximus' mobile telecom network generates network location data. These location data make it possible to determine which antenna tower your mobile phone is connected to on the Proximus mobile network. Unlike GPS data, however, network location data are not precise because an antenna tower can serve a large region. From the data, you can't tell, for example, whether a particular person has gone to a particular restaurant, shop or bakery.
Proximus can use location data to generate location reports. In doing so, we of course take the necessary measures to respect your privacy.
Only anonymous data are used to create such reports. Moreover, the anonymous data are grouped in such a way that the recipients of these reports are unable to link the information to individual customers. Where certain reports relate to smaller groups, additional measures are taken to prevent any re-identification. Anonymous location data can relate to the current location (near real time) or can go back up to three months. Location reports can be supplemented with a limited amount of statistical data, e.g. which country, region, or municipality the people live in, how long they stayed in the location, how often they visit the location, where they came from and where they are going from that location, and other external statistical data (e.g. aggregated data from censuses which are available to the public). Here, too, only anonymous data are included in the reports. Proximus does not sell any individual location data. The anonymously created location data remain within the company. Proximus only sells reports that give information on how many people are present at a specific time and in a specific place (at least at the postal-code or event level), in order to provide data on visitors, events and movement analysis.
Proximus does not sell individual location data. The anonymously created location data remain within the company. Proximus only sells reports that give information on how many people are present in a specific place at a specific time (at least to the postal-code or event level), in order to provide visitor-, event- and movement-analysis data.
Other customer data can also be anonymized and consolidated into larger groups for internal and external reporting. For example, your viewing behavior can be converted into anonymous reports on the popularity of TV channels and programs.
In any event, Proximus ensures that, in reports based on our data, it is impossible to identify any person.
Proximus operates a public Internet-of-Things network on which devices and sensors can send data to the Proximus MyThings platform. For privacy reasons, this service is not suitable for locating people.
When you log in to Proximus' MyThings portal, the following data are collected to identify and authenticate you: your login data, your e-mail address, your first and last name, and the name of the company on whose behalf you are logging in.
Your e-mail address is used to keep you informed about the latest news and changes to the service, unless you object to this via IoT@proximus.com. For security reasons, all your operations on the MyThings portal are recorded and kept for one month. Your account data are kept for as long as your account is active. If your account has been inactive for two years, it is destroyed.
To exercise your privacy rights, please send an e-mail to IoT@Proximus.com.
The only cookies used on this portal are those which are necessary for the functionality of the portal. Without these cookies, the MyThings portal can’t function properly.
Proximus processes data which are necessary for the functionality of the app and for providing you with a better Wi-Fi experience.
The following data are processed:
Data necessary for the functionality of the app:
To detect Wi-Fi networks, your access to location data must be activated. The app doesn’t use your GPS coordinates.
Data necessary for monitoring the proper functioning of the App and the improvement of its quality:
If you are not logged in to your MyProximus account when you use the app, the measurements shown in the app and any other data (except for anonymous user data) will not be saved.
If you are logged in to your MyProximus account when you use the App, the following data will be sent to a Proximus database: the measurements taken, the Proximus Wi-Fi circuits, and the MAC addresses of Proximus Wi-Fi devices.
These data will be processed by Proximus in order to remotely (or on-site, if necessary) adapt the Wi-Fi settings in the Proximus modem to improve your Wi-Fi experience, to obtain an overview of the quality of the Proximus Wi-Fi network over a longer period, and to optimize the Proximus Wi-Fi network.
These data can also be used to inform you about Proximus products, services and promotions that might interest you, unless you object to this via the privacy preferences in MyProximus.
The data are kept for one year. The data processing is necessary to deliver the service of the app.
We can display/send advertisement on our products and services via e-mail and your social media accounts. If you no longer want this, you need to adapt your account settings.
Proximus can send you e-mails to keep you informed about existing and new products, services and promotions, unless you objected to this. In the "How can I exercise my privacy rights" section, you can find out what you can do to stop receiving such e-mails. There is also an opt-out possibility in each commercial e-mail we send. We use tools to measure and track the impact of these e-mails (e.g. was the e-mail opened or not, was a hyperlink clicked?). This way, we make our e-mail campaigns more effective and can better align our offer with your personal interests.
If you have a Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn or Google account, Proximus can display advertisement via these accounts on products, services and promotions that might interest you. To this end, Proximus determines a specific target audience by using a number of parameters such as age, gender, interests, ... and asks the provider of a social media channel to show a specific advertisement to this target audience eg. please show a Proximus advertisement to men between 20 and 25 years with an interest in football. It is important to note that Proximus does not share personal data with the provider of the social media channel. If you don't want such advertisement, you need to change your settings for advertising in the relevant account or via www.youronlinechoices.com.
Proximus uses surveillance cameras to monitor its buildings (both its own buildings and rented buildings) and the access to its buildings, to ensure the security of visitors and employees and the protection of goods. The images collected are used in compliance with legislation on surveillance cameras to prevent, detect or track down crimes.
The images are deleted after one month unless they can be used to prove a crime, damage or nuisance, or to identify perpetrators, disturbers of public order, witnesses or victims.

We will also give you additional information on, for example, why these personal data are processed, the origin of the data, the types of third parties with whom we share your personal data, etc.
If you notice that certain data that Proximus has about you are no longer correct, you can adapt them. For this, contact our customer service.
Some personal data, such as contact details, are available in the MyProximus environment and you can adapt them there.
In certain cases (e.g. if you suspect that Proximus has unlawfully processed your personal data), you can ask for your personal data to be deleted.
Proximus is unable to delete certain personal data (e.g. billing data) because it is required by law to keep that data.
You can object (without a motivation) to the use of your personal data for marketing purposes. Via MyProximus (web)/my account/my notifications, you can separately indicate whether we can contact you by phone (mobile or landline), text message, e-mail, post, or pop-up via the web.
You can also follow the instructions in the e-mails and texts you receive from Proximus to stop receiving such commercial messages in the future.
If you have a specific reason (motivated request), you can object to Proximus using your personal data for purposes other than those required for the performance of an agreement or for complying with a legal obligation (e.g. fraud prevention). In case of a justified request, Proximus will stop using your personal data unless we have compelling grounds to continue using it.
Whenever you give us explicit consent to process personal data for specific purposes (e.g. personalized TV advertisement), you can withdraw the consent previously given at any time. You can do this via MyProximus (web)/my account/my privacy or via MyProximus (app)/account settings/edit privacy settings.
Bear in mind that the change of choice will not be visible immediately in all environments (MyProximus web and app, TV). It takes some time for the change to be processed in our systems and databases.
If Proximus processes your personal data in a totally automatic way (without human intervention), you can object to this.
You can transfer personal data that you provided to Proximus (e.g. contact details) to yourself or a third party.

The term of 30 days may be extended to 60 days maximum, depending on the number and complexity of the requests. We will keep you informed of any delay in our response within the initial term.

When a professional customer uses Proximus services and products, the specific provisions of this chapter apply.
Proximus acts as a data controller for the identification and contact details of the customer's contact persons, which are collected by Proximus, and for data generated by the use that the customer and its end users make of Proximus' electronic communication services (e.g. metadata on communication traffic). Proximus also acts as a data controller for the data that customers provide when they create cases in a Proximus system (e.g. for a service disruption) and for the communication on such cases.
These data are used for: delivering the requested products and services; setting up the connection with the electronic communication networks of other operators; billing; ensuring the correct use of roaming services abroad; dispute management; detecting fraud and infringements against Proximus, its employees, its customers or its suppliers; improving the quality of products and services; internal reporting purposes; the planning and organization of the telecom infrastructure; market research and to invite the customer or its end users to test products and services; and customer profiling, in order to make the information about our products, services and offers more relevant to the customer or its end users.
In addition, a certain quantity of personal data are processed because Proximus has a legitimate interest in promoting its products and services in order to increase its market share. Certain personal data are also processed because Proximus has a legal obligation to do so, e.g. at the request of the competent authorities.
Proximus transfers to professional customers the obligation to pass on the following important information to their end users:
Participants in Proximus events can be filmed or photographed. The photos and/or videos can be published on interfaces available to the public, such as websites, Facebook pages or apps. Proximus can use the photos and videos to report on the events as part of its communication campaigns or promotional presentations. You have the right to have any photos or videos in which you appear removed. For this, send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The use of customer experiences in Proximus campaigns.
If a Proximus customer has consented to the publication of their testimonial, quote, or idea on the use of Proximus services in a marketing or other communication campaign or during a co-creation event, Proximus may process that customer's relevant personal data for this purpose. Proximus stores such personal data for five years. Customers can withdraw their consent regarding the processing of their data for this purpose at any time via https://www.enterprises.proximus.be/preference_centre_nl.
Proximus acts as a data processor whenever it processes personal data at the customer's request.
This is the case for personal data that:
When Proximus acts as a data processor for the personal data of the customer or its end users, it can be assisted by sub-processors. Proximus remains liable to the customer for the protection of the personal data of the customer's end users. The Proximus subcontractor list covers the subcontractors for the products and services provided to our professional customers for which Proximus acts as a data processor. Proximus will keep the list up-to-date.
The list of subcontractors can be consulted here.
End users of professional customers have the right to inspect, correct and delete their personal data.
If end users receive a bill from Proximus, they can exercise this right by contacting the Data Protection Officer of Proximus and by sending a request (dated and signed) to the Proximus Data Protection Officer (27 bd du Roi Albert II, 1030 Brussels) or to email@example.com. Each request must be accompanied by a copy of the identity card.
End users who do not receive a bill from Proximus must contact the professional customer to exercise this right.
Professional customers and their contact persons can inform Proximus about their preference as regards the reception of commercial information from Proximus via: https://www.enterprises.proximus.be/preference_centre_nl
End users have the right to lodge a complaint with the Data Protection Authority. More information: see www.dataprotectionauthority.be/contact-us.
We can share your personal data (e.g. contact details), as well as data on the products and services you use or are interested in, with our subsidiaries to keep you informed about all the solutions of the Proximus Group, unless you object to this. In case of non-payment, we can inform our subsidiaries about your payment habits to protect the interests of the Proximus Group.
