Eurosealings has no designated DPO, as the very limited personal data processing is not carried out by a public authority, the activities do not consist of processing operations which require regular and systematic monitoring of data subjects at large scale nor does processing happen on a large scale of special categories or data.
3. What data is processed, for what purpose and on which legal ground?
Eurosealings collects following data when you visit the website eurosealings.be:
Technical Data: when you visit the website www.eurosealings.be, the browser automatically sends certain information to Eurosealings. This includes the IP address of your device and the url you are visiting. Eurosealings uses this technical information to deliver the web pages to your browser.
This technical data is as such needed to deliver our service to the consumer of the website in a secure manner. That is, without data like the IP address of your device, Eurosealings would not be in a position to deliver the web pages to your device.
Some of the technical data is also used by our hosting partner to prevent attacks, such as Denial of Service attacks, where multiple requests at the same time are fired in an attempt to get the website down. As a last way of processing, the incoming requests are also logged by the server, in order to be able to do log inspection and to debug problems whenever server problems arise.
Concerning the legal grounds and lawfulness of processing, this means that the processing of technical data is strictly necessary to provide the necessary services in order to serve the requested web pages by the browser in a secure manner. Furthermore, logging the technical requests as well as using the technical data to prevent attacks is in the legitimate interest of Eurosealings.
No other personal data is collected, than the data that is needed to process the web pages on www.eurosealings.be. Especially, no special categories or sensitive data is captured.

7. Consumer Rights
The right of personal data protection is a fundamental right in the European Union. As a consumer you are in full control of the data that is collected. As a visitor of the Eurosealings website, you have following rights:

You have the right to obtain from Eurosealings confirmation as to whether or not personal data concerning you are being processed, and, where that is the case, access to the personal data and get an insight on the purposes of the data collection, the retention policy and a copy of the collected data.
As we currently do not collect any PII data other than technical data, it would be impossible to collect any information other than that based on a device IP address.
Right of rectification, erasure, restriction of processing, data portability
