  • Surname;
  • First name;

On our website we also use cookies or similar technologies, primarily to optimise our website for its users.  In some cases, these cookies may also collect personal data about you. For more specific information about the cookies we use, you can consult our cookie statement.

3. How do we use your data?

Providing the aforementioned personal data is mandatory when you fill in the contact form.  Without these personal data we cannot respond to your request.  The processing of your personal data is thus entirely aimed at responding to your request.  By filling in the contact form you give us your consent to process your data for this purpose.

We do not use your personal data for other purposes.

If you have given your consent to this, we may also use the email address provided by you to send you email messages relating to our activities, promotions and actions.  When you receive such email messages you will always have the possibility to adjust your preferences or unsubscribe.  You can also unsubscribe at any time by sending an email to the following email address:

4. With whom do we share your data?

Filliers may share your personal data with external service providers it uses in order to be able to provide its services to you.  Such service providers only act as processors for Filliers, and Filliers will enter into the necessary agreements with these service providers.

Aside from this, we do not transfer any personal data to third parties, unless we are obliged to do so based on mandatory legal provisions (e.g. disclosure to external bodies, such as supervisory or law enforcement bodies) and/or as a result of a court or government order.

In any case, we will ensure that all reasonable protection measures are taken so that the transfer of your data can take place in a safe manner.

For the sake of completeness, we wish to point out that our website contains references to websites belonging to third parties (e.g. suppliers of brands we have in our import portfolio).  When you are referred to these websites no personal data is shared, but it is possible that the third-party website we refer you to will also collect and process personal data about you.  Filliers is not responsible for the content of these websites and/or the way in which these websites process your personal data.  For more information about this, we refer to the privacy and cookie statements of the websites concerned.

5. Are your data transferred abroad?

In principle, your personal data are not transferred abroad.

Insofar as such transfers are necessary, we take the necessary measures to ensure that your personal data are highly protected and that all transfers of personal data outside the EEA take place in a lawful manner.

If a transfer takes place to a country outside the EEA for which the European Commission has not determined that it offers an adequate level of protection, this transfer shall always be subject to an agreement that complies with all requirements for transfers to third countries, such as the standard provisions on data protection approved by the European Commission. You can consult the standard provisions approved by the European Commission via the following hyperlink:

6. How long do we keep your personal data?

We do not keep your personal data any longer than necessary to achieve the intended purpose for which your personal data are collected.  This means that, in principle, we delete your personal data as soon as the request for which you have provided us with your personal data has been dealt with (e.g. job application data are kept until the position has been filled).

If you have given us consent to use your data for marketing purposes, we will keep your data for a maximum of 5 years after you have given this consent (unless the consent is withdrawn in the meantime).

Notwithstanding the foregoing, we will not be able to delete certain personal data if there is a legal obligation to keep this personal data, or if we may need this data in the context of a legal claim.

7. How are your personal data secured?

We have taken all reasonable and adequate technical and organisational security measures to protect your personal data as best as possible against accidental or intentional (and unauthorised) manipulation, modification, publication, loss, abuse, destruction or access by unauthorised persons.

8. Your rights relating to your data?

Based on the General Data Protection Regulation you have a right (insofar as the concrete conditions of application for such a right are fulfilled) to:

  • Access to and information about the personal data that we process about you;
  • Be forgotten, or ask us to delete your personal data;
  • Rectification and completion;
  • Transferability of personal data;
  • Restriction of processing;
