Data of persons under 16 years of age

Our website and/or service does not intend to collect data from website visitors who are under the age of 16. Unless they have the consent of their parent or guardian.

Automated decision making

De Belgische Loodsensociëteit does not make decisions based on automated processing about matters that could (significantly) affect individuals. These decisions are made by computer programs or systems without the presence of a person (e.g. an employee of the Belgian Pilotage Company).

We enter into a processing agreement with companies that process your data on our behalf to ensure the same level of security and confidentiality of your data.
