Our registered Fourcast BVBA office is located at Gemeenschappenlaan 110, 1200 Sint-Lambrechts-Woluwe, and our company registration number is BE0563.526.547.
Fourcast offers an array of online information, services, promotions, content and events at different platforms (for example our website, webshop, landing pages, blog, emails, etc.). We want to offer you these (from now on called ‘Services’) in an as much personalised way as possible to inform you, help you, or create engagement with you. The Services may contain -personalised- content and promotions. By collecting and using your personal data, we want to get to know you better and tailor your chosen Services better to your personal preferences.
If we refer to our ‘Content’ we mean all text, visuals, video & audio material and all other content that we offer you, be it interactive or not. Our content can also contain content that is property and under control of third parties, but which we may make accessible to you.
Personal data that can be collected by us may include:
Your personal data is or can be collected in several ways, more specifically via:
Cookies are small pieces of information stored by your browser on your computer's hard drive. We might also log and track commercial and marketing emails by using cookies, to be able to follow-up better later.
You can delete cookies if you wish; while certain cookies are necessary for viewing and navigating our website, most of the pages will be still accessible without cookies.
Please be aware that in most cases we will not be able to identify you from the information we collect using these technologies. For example, we use software to monitor customer traffic patterns and website usage to help us develop the design and layout of the website, in order to enhance the experience of the visitors to our website.
This software does not enable us to collect any personal data. In addition, in order to understand how our customers interact with the emails and the content that we send, we use software that allows us to know if the emails we send are opened or if the content of our emails is displayed in text or html form. We’ll also be able to see which content you downloaded from our website or emails and how you interacted with it.
You’re not obliged to share your personal data with us, but understand that we can’t provide certain Services and content when you refuse the processing of your personal data by us.
Fourcast uses your personal data for the following purposes.
We are able to deliver, improve and develop our services and personalise content by collecting and using your information. We use your data to understand how you use and interact with our Services and the things you’re interested in on and off our Services.
We also use your information to provide personalised content to you. For example: we might write personalised information on a particular solutions page that is more relevant to you, if we know that you’re interested in a specific topic based on the pages you viewed before.
We use your data to communicate with you about our Services and let you know about our policies and terms. We also use your information to respond to you when you contact us.
We use your data to send you marketing communications via email or via phone, only on the legal basis of your consent to do so through an opt-in. You can always unsubscribe for these communications by updating your communications preferences.
We use the information we have about you to improve our advertising and measurement systems so we can show you relevant ads on and off our Services. We also measure the effectiveness and reach of these ads.
This allows us to analyse how users interact with and utilise our website, which enables us to provide a better experience and offer more relevant services and content on our website(s) and through our marketing and communications channels. The legal basis for this use of your data is the legitimate interest of Fourcast to constantly monitor and improve its Services and content.
We use your personal data for the delivery and invoicing of our services and solutions that are requested by you or your organisation.
Personal information of our customers is processed to enable the execution of an agreement/contract and the provision of our services and solutions. We also use personalised marketing to make our customer’s browsing experience better, to offer customers personalised content & advertising that fits their interests. We also may send our customers relevant information by email or other means.
Customers can always opt out from direct marketing. We provide opt out options in all direct marketing emails. If you do not wish to see personalised marketing content on the web related to our Services, you can clear the cookies in your browser settings.
We will never sell, rent or make commercially available your personal data to third parties or partners, without you explicitly giving consent for us to do this. We only share your personal data with our third party data controllers, often in a semi anonymised way.
In specific cases and only when you agreed that we can do so, with other partners. This is for example the case when you register for Services like an event or content that we are organising or putting together with partners like Google or others.
We work with some third party companies and data controllers who help us provide and improve our Services or from whom we use advertising or related products, which makes it possible to operate our companies.
