Personal data

What is personal data?

Personal data is all information that allows the BAOP vzw to verify your identity, directly or indirectly. Personal data are therefore all the details that we can link to you in one way or another, such as your date of birth, e-mail address, your telephone number, your address, etc.

What personal data do we collect and process?
The BAOP vzw collects and processes your personal data as a result of your membership, your participation in activities or because you provided it to us yourself.

Who has access to your personal data?

The BAOP asbl is the ‘data controller’. This means that we determine which data we collect and for what purpose. In legal terms, we determine the ‘purpose of the processing’.

– we are obliged to do so on a legal basis for a specific reason.
