Carefully read this Privacy Policy, as it contains essential information about how your personal data are processed and what cookies are used. When we refer to ‘personal data’ in this Privacy Policy, we mean the information you give us about yourself, such as your name, address, e-mail address and telephone number, but also what products you bought or, for example, what e-mails you sent us. By providing your personal data, you acknowledge that you have taken note of this Privacy Policy and that you also explicitly agree with it, as well as with the processing of your data.

If you still have questions after reading this, please let us know through our contact form.


De Leiding complies with the "Law of 8 December 1992 on the protection of privacy with regard to the processing of personal data", as amended by the Law of 11 December 1998 as well as the anti-spam provisions from Book XII of the Economic Law Code on the "law of the electronic economy".


Through its current Privacy Policy, De Leiding also complies with the European Regulation 2016/679 of 27 April 2016 on the protection of personal data. The organization that is responsible for processing your personal data is De leiding cvba.  

You share data with us in various ways. We use data that we have received from you, but also data that we collected by ourselves. For example, data about your visit to our website. You are not required to disclose your personal data, but you must understand that it becomes impossible to provide certain services if you refuse the processing. You are solely responsible for the accuracy of that information. De Leiding will use the collected personal data for the following purposes only:

1. Anonymous data

These are data that you share with us without registration: your IP-address, surfing behaviour, origin, search terms. We use this information to maintain and improve our website. This means that we include personal data in anonymous statistics, from which the identity of specific persons or companies cannot be traced, with the legitimate interests of De Leiding as a legal basis for constantly improving its website and services.

2. Cookies

The website also uses cookies that collect a number of personal data based on your explicit prior consent. We use these data to maintain and improve our website. For the provisions regarding the use of cookies, see below.

3. Request information online or order

For your information request or order, we need your name, e-mail address, address and possibly your VAT number and your telephone number. We need this information for the delivery and invoicing of products you have ordered, with the legal basis of providing a service that you have requested.

5. Your opinion

In order to keep improving our services, we appreciate hearing your opinion. That is why we can contact you for an assessment or a customer or market investigation, without any obligations. We keep the details of the assessment, as well as who writes which assessment. If you do not wish to participate in assessments, you can always indicate this by using the link at the bottom of the e-mail, or by contacting us via our contact form.

All e-mail communication with De Leiding is kept, as well as chat conversations and data about a possible telephone conversation with you. If a telephone conversation is recorded, we will inform you beforehand. This information is only used to answer your question as well and as quickly as possible and to improve our services, with the legal basis of providing a service that you have requested.

Your personal data can also be used for direct marketing. If you are already included in our mailing list to receive marketing material in paper and / or electronic form, De Leiding can use your data to send you marketing and other material related to Robinetto and De Leiding , its products and / or services. De Leiding can use the information you provide in order to update saved documents. This permission can be withdrawn at any time, without justification and free of charge, for example by clicking on the unsubscribe link provided for this purpose, at the bottom of every promotional e-mail message or by contacting us via our contact form.

In order to be able to process your personal data, we provide access to your personal data to our employees. However, within De Leiding, the data are only accessible to responsible persons who must have access to them in function of their duties. We guarantee a similar level of protection by making contractual obligations, similar to this Privacy Policy, opposable to these employees.

We rely on external processors to help us with certain services. These services can include delivery services, processing of credit / debit card payments, marketing activities and providing customer service. This means, among other things, that we temporarily transmit personal data to third parties for certain tasks or investigations because they need them to provide the service to De Leiding and ultimately to you. We always record this in a contract with these processors and limit the data that we share with third parties to only the purposes for which the other party needs them. This processor will never be allowed to use your data on his own initiative and your data must be deleted as soon as the processor has completed the assignment.

Specifically, we work with these external suppliers for processing and using data:

Campaign Monitor Pty Ltd., for e-mail newsletters - privacy policy

Zestia LTD, Capsule CRM, for follow-up of sales and customer relations - privacy policy

We can also pass on your data in case our organization or part of it is sold and the buyer needs your data to continue the service to you. In the event of a full or partial reorganization or transfer of De Leiding activities, whereby the business activities are reorganized, transferred or discontinued or if De Leiding goes bankrupt, this may mean that your data are transferred to new entities or third parties. We will do everything we can to inform you in advance of the fact that De Leiding discloses your data to this third party, but you also acknowledge that this is not technically or commercially feasible under all circumstances.

De Leiding will not sell, rent, distribute or otherwise make your personal data commercially available to third parties, except as has been described above or unless in case of your prior consent.  

We store and process your personal data for a period that is necessary in function of the purposes of the processing and in function of the contractual relationship between you and De Leiding.

When you become a De Leiding customer, we keep certain information. That is why you also have a number of rights with regard to these data.
