Charleroi Métropole treats the protection of your privacy and personal data very seriously. We collect and process your personal data in compliance with the applicable legal provisions, specifically the [Belgian] law of 30 July 2018 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data, which entered into force 5 September 2018 (‘Loi vie privée’ [‘Privacy Law’]) and the European 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 (‘Regulation’).

6. What are my rights?
6.1. Guarantee of fair and lawful processing
Your personal data is always processed in compliance with the legitimate purposes set out in Point 4. It is collected and processed adequately, pertinently and not excessively, and is not stored for longer than what is necessary for the intended purposes.
All technical and security measures have been taken to limit risks of illegal or unauthorised access to or processing of your personal data. In the event of an intrusion into its IT systems, Charleroi Métropole will immediately take all measures necessary to reduce damage to a minimum.
6.2. Right of access
Si vous êtes en mesure de prouver votre identité, vous avez le droit d’obtenir des informations sur le traitement de vos données. Ainsi vous avez le droit de connaître les finalités du traitement, les catégories de données concernées, les catégories de destinataires auxquels les données sont transmises, les critères utilisés pour déterminer la durée de conservation des données, et les droits que vous pouvez exercer sur vos données.
6.3. Right of rectification
Inaccurate or incomplete personal data can be rectified. In the first instance, it is incumbent on the user to effect the necessary changes him or herself in his or her ‘user account’ but you can also send us a written request.
6.4. Right of erasure (or “right to be forgotten”)
You also have the right to obtain the erasure of your personal data in the following cases:
- Your personal data is no longer required with regard to the purposes;
- You withdraw your consent to the processing and there are no other lawful grounds for the processing;
- You have legitimately exercised your right of objection;
- Your data was the subject of illegal processing;
- Your data must be erased in order to meet a legal obligation.
Charleroi Métropole decides whether the criteria above exist.
6.5. Right of restriction of processing
In certain cases, you have the right to request restriction of the processing of your personal data, in particular in the case of disputing the accuracy of the data, if your data has been processed illegally, if the data is required in the context of legal proceedings or for the time required by Charleroi Métropole to verify that you can legitimately exercise your right of erasure.
6.6. Right of objection
You also have the right to object to the processing of your personal data at any time. Greater Charleroi will cease processing your personal data unless it can demonstrate that there are compelling legitimate reasons for the processing which take precedence over your right of objection.
6.7. Right of data portability
You have the right to obtain all of the personal data that you have provided to us in a structured, commonly-used and machine-readable format. At your request, this data can be transmitted to another controller unless this is technically impossible.
6.8. Right of withdrawal of consent
You may withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data at any time. Withdrawing your consent does not affect the validity of the processing operations carried out prior to the consent being withdrawn.
7. How do I exercise my rights?
To exercise your rights, you must send us a request via registered letter to:
- Nathalie Czerniatynski
- Boulevard Mayence, 1
- 6000 Charleroi
or by e-mail to email@example.com. We will respond as quickly as possible and one (1) month after receiving the request at the latest.
8. Option of lodging a complaint
