Privacy policy

Depro Profiles wants to focus on the protection of personal data according to the guidelines elaborated in the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) or the AVG (General Data Protection Regulation) according to the European regulation 2016/679 that applies from 25 May 2018.

We take good care of your personal data
First and foremost, Depro Profiles adheres to treating your personal data according to the basic principles of processing.
• clarity
• purpose limitation
• storage limitation & data minimization
• correctness
• confidentiality integrity availability, where CIA stands for: confidentiality, integrity and availability.
We consciously process your personal data
Your personal data will only be processed when this is done in a lawful manner. On the one hand, this can be done after your explicit consent. You always have the right to withdraw this consent.

On the other hand, this is only possible when it is necessary for one of the following reasons;
• perform contract
• legal provision
• vital
• common interest
• legitimate interest
Purpose and legality
Depro Profiles will only process the necessary personal data in the context of the execution of an agreement (e.g. a purchase, ...), a legitimate interest (e.g. direct marketing, request for quotation, ...) or in accordance with the legal provisions (e.g. processing data of own employees).
It goes without saying that Depro Profiles protects all data properly. As a result, we have taken the necessary technical and organizational measures, Depro Profiles provides the necessary physical protections, regular updates of hardware and software, adequate password management, secure internet connections and uses anti-virus software to all achieve the same goal.

The personal data processed by Depro Profiles will not be passed on to third parties, unless the transfer is part of an agreement to be performed (eg direct delivery, registered license,…). This third party must process the personal data supplied to it in accordance with the GDPR legislation (eg not use it for its own purposes, adequately protect this data, ...).


Because Depro Profiles likes to keep you informed, a mailing is regularly sent to our customers and prospects, if there is a contract or a request for quotation. In the context of a quotation, we rely on the principle of legitimate interest. However, it is possible to unsubscribe at any time in an easy way, so that you no longer receive these mailings.
Prospects via the website can indicate whether they want to be e-mailed by ticking the contact form on our website.
If Depro Profiles wishes to process your personal data for any other reason, we will ask for your explicit permission.

What are cookies?
(Source: website Privacy Committee)
Cookies are small text files that can be stored on your computer when visiting websites. This text file stores information, such as your language preference for a website. When you visit the website again, this cookie is sent to the website again. That way the website recognises your browser and can remember your language preference, for example.
Cookies usually also have an expiry date. For example, some cookies are automatically deleted when you close your browser (the so-called session cookie), while others remain on your computer for a longer period of time, sometimes even until you delete them manually (the so-called persistent cookie).
Why do we use cookies?
Websites use convenient and useful techniques that increase the ease of use and make the site as interesting as possible for each visitor. The best-known examples of these techniques are cookies and scripts (together referred to as "cookies"). Cookies can be used by website owners or by third parties - advertisers, for example - who communicate through the website you visit.
The use of cookies is safe. No personal information, such as telephone numbers or e-mail addresses, can be derived from cookies. Therefore, cookies cannot be used for e-mail and telemarketing campaigns either.
We find it very important that you know which cookies our website uses and for what purposes they are used. We want to guarantee your privacy, user-friendliness and the financing of our website as much as possible. Below you can read more about the cookies used by and through our website and for what purposes.
Which cookies are used on this website?
Functional cookies ensure that the website functions properly.
 Our website uses cookies for:
1. passing information from one page to the next, for example if you fill in a long survey or if you have to fill in a lot of data when ordering online, storing preferences, such as language, location, the desired number of search results to be shown, etc.
See below for a list of the cookies we use, what data they collect and for how long they are used.
These are cookies that allow us to measure the use of the website. In order to determine which parts of the website are most interesting to our visitors, we try to continuously measure how many visitors come to our website and what is most viewed, using the software of Google Analytics as a third party. We use cookies for this purpose.
Statistics are made from the information we collect in this way. These statistics give us an insight into how often our webpage is visited, where exactly visitors spend the most time, and so on. This enables us to make the structure, navigation and content of the website as user-friendly as possible for you. The statistics and other reports do not allow us to identify individuals.
We use cookies for:
1. keeping track of the number of visitors on our web pages
2. tracking the time that each visitor spends on our web pages
3. determine the order in which a visitor visits the various pages of our website
4. assessing which parts of our site require adjustment
5. optimising the website
Social media
These are cookies to share the content of our website via social media.
The articles and videos that you view on our website can be shared via social media using buttons. To make these buttons work, we use social media cookies from the social media parties, so that they recognise you when you want to share an article or video.
These cookies make it possible for:
1. Logged-in users of selected social media can share certain content of our website directly.
For the cookies that the social media parties place and the possible data that they collect, we refer to the statements that these parties provide on their own websites; see the links below. Please note that these statements can change regularly. Depro Profiles has no influence on this.
- Facebook page
- Google+
- Twitter
- Pinterest
- LinkedIn
- YouTube
These are cookies for behavioural content of a web page.
Our aim is to provide visitors to our website with information that is as relevant as possible to them. Therefore we try to adapt our site as much as possible to each visitor. We do this not only through the content of our website, but also through the advertisements that are shown.
To be able to make these adjustments, we try to get a picture of your probable interests from the websites you visit on the internet, without building up a profile that can be traced back to a person. Based on these interests, we then customise the content and advertising on our website for different customer groups. For example, on the basis of your surfing behaviour, you may be included in a certain category, such as "men aged 30 to 45, married with children and interested in football". This group will then of course see different ads from the segment "woman, age category 20 to 30, unmarried and interested in travelling".
Third parties that place cookies on our website may also try to find your interests in this way. The information about your current website visit may then be combined with information from previous visits to websites other than ours.
If such cookies are not used, this does not mean that you will not see any advertisements on our site. It just means that the advertisements will no longer be tailored to your interests.
These cookies make it possible that:
1. the websites register your visit in order to assess your interests
Other/unforeseen cookies
Due to the way the Internet and websites work, we may not always have insight into the cookies that are placed via our website by third parties. This is particularly the case if our web pages contain so-called embedded elements; these are texts, documents, images or videos that are stored with another party but are displayed on, in or via our website.
Should you come across any cookies on this website that fall into this category and that we have not mentioned above, please let us know. Or contact the third party directly and ask them what cookies they set, the reason for setting them, the cookie's life span and how they have guaranteed your privacy.
How do I see what cookies have been installed and how do I remove them?
If you do not want websites to place cookies on your computer at all, you can adjust your browser settings so that you receive a warning before a cookie is placed. You can also adjust your settings so that your browser refuses all cookies or only third-party cookies. You can also delete cookies that have already been placed. Please note that you have to adjust the settings separately for each browser and computer you use.
Please be aware that if you do not want cookies, we can no longer guarantee that our website will work properly. Some functions of the site may be lost or you may not be able to see certain websites at all. In addition, refusing cookies does not mean that you will no longer see any advertisements. It's just that the ads will no longer be tailored to your interests and will be repeated more often.
How you can adjust your settings varies from one browser to another. Consult the help function of your browser if necessary.
