When you use myID.be®, you share personal information with U2U CONSULT SA/NV, whose seat is registered at Z. 1 Researchpark 110, 1731 Asse, Belgium, under the number BE0477.765.085 and acts as data controller.
Your privacy and the security of your personal information are extremely important to us. We limit the information we collect to what is required to provide you with our services, and we do everything that is reasonably possible to protect your information.
What information does U2U Consult process?
Information you provide
When you log in to myID.be® or one of our partner's applications using your electronic identity card (eID), we receive and store the Authentication Certificate that is stored on your eID. From that certificate, we read your name, national identification number and nationality.
We use the national identification number to identify and authenticate you, as referred to in § 5 of Article 8 of the law regulating a national register of natural persons, as modified by Article 14 of the law of 25 November 2018 (2018/32324).
When you log in to myID.be® or one of our partner's applications, both the actual logging in and the time it took place will be logged.
You provide this data on a voluntary basis, and by doing so you consent to us storing and processing it. The services of myID.be® cannot be provided without processing necessary elements of your personal data.
When you visit the web site or use the service, we may use “cookies” – a piece of information stored on your computer – to allow the web site or service to uniquely identify your browser while you are logged in and to enable us to process your online transactions. We do not link the information we store in cookies to any personally identifiable information you submit while on our web site. Session cookies help us verify your identity and are required in order to use the service.
The session cookies we may use are:
- .Session: used to remember you logged in. This cookie does not contain personally identifiable information other than an opaque identifier, and is encrypted.
- .ui_locales: used to remember your preferred language, if you changed it from your browser's default language.
The persistent cookies we may use are:
You may set your browser to block all cookies, including cookies associated with our service. Users who disable their browsers’ ability to accept cookies will be able to browse our web site, but will not be able to access or take advantage of the service.
As is true of most web sites, we gather certain information automatically and store it in log files. This information may include internet protocol (IP) addresses, browser type, internet service provider (ISP), referring/exit pages, operating system, date/time stamp and clickstream data.
We may use this information, which does not identify individual users, to analyze trends, to administer the web site, to track users’ movements while on the site and to gather demographic information about our user base as a whole.
You can contact us for support or to ask a question. In doing so, we process the data you provide to us. For these services, we may use processors. They process the received data exclusively for us and on our behalf and a processor agreement has been concluded with them. We do not share data with them and they therefore do not have access to your authentication data or your usage data of our application. They will only share data with us in relation to your contacting them.
