Purpose of the website
This website aims to provide the visitor with an easily accessible and rapid source of information about the activities and functioning of Dovesco.
Dovesco endeavours to provide visitors to the website with information that is clear, up to date, correct and precise, but does not guarantee that the information provided will always be clear, adequate, correct, free of typographical errors, relevant, complete or up to date, or that the website will be comprehensive. If the website contains information that is defective or incomplete, Dovesco will make every effort to remedy the shortcoming.
Dovesco likewise does not guarantee uninterrupted access to the website or the absence of technical malfunctions, although Dovesco makes every effort to prevent problems of a technical nature.
The information available to visitors to the website is of a general nature. The website’s content should therefore not be regarded as personal or professional advice in any sense, or as constituting an offer of products or services for sale.
The website may be added to, changed or removed at any time by Dovesco, without prior notice and without visitors being informed. Visitors to the website are deemed to be aware that the website is subject to change.

The website may contain hyperlinks to websites belonging to third parties. Dovesco has no control over the content of such websites, which are managed entirely by third parties both technically and in terms of content. For this reason, a link to another website does not imply agreement with its content. Dovesco disclaims any liability with regard to the content and availability of third-party websites if the visitor incurs damage by visiting them.
Intellectual property rights
The copying, reproduction, distribution, sale, translation and editing of content for commercial use, even with a source acknowledgement, is not permitted without the prior written consent of Dovesco.
Protection of personal data
The term ‘personal data’ is understood to mean all information about an identified or identifiable natural person. A natural person is regarded as identifiable if he or she can be identified directly or indirectly, in particular by means of an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or one or more elements characterising the physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person.
Dovesco respects the privacy of visitors. Where personal information about visitors is collected by Dovesco, the processing of such data takes place in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of 27 April 2016 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data and repealing Directive 95/46/EC, as well as Book XII of the Code of Economic Law on ‘Law concerning the digital economy’.
Dovesco guarantees to visitors that their personal data are collected for the following purposes only:
- Providing visitors with information they have requested.
Dovesco guarantees to visitors that their personal data are only processed for the intended purposes, are not communicated to third parties under any circumstances and are not used for direct marketing. Dovesco provides appropriate security for personal data which have been collected, to prevent any misuse of such data.
Visitors may ask Dovesco for access to their personal data and check their accuracy. Visitors have the right to be informed about the processing of their personal data, the right to request that their data be erased, the right to ask Dovesco to transfer their data to a third party and the right to object to the processing of their data. Any visitor wishing to exercise his or her rights may contact Dovesco’s legal department by email (GDPR@dovesco.com).
Dovesco has the right to transmit the data of visitors who violate Belgian or international legislation to the competent Belgian authorities.
When visitors provide Dovesco with information of their own accord, such as reactions and comments or visual material, this information is not regarded as confidential. Dovesco may use this information for any purpose, on the understanding that Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of 27 April 2016 of the European Parliament and of the Council on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data and repealing Directive 95/46/EC will be complied with at all times.
