Breach and indemnity
Humanise takes every reasonable measure to ensure the integrity and security of information obtained from users via the Website and to prevent any unauthorized access and use of this information. To this end, Humanise regularly reviews its security measures.
Humanise cannot, under any circumstances, be obliged to monitor the data provided through this Website or conveyed by its intermediary, as is the case for all other websites linked to or from this Website.

Data collected by automatic means
Several tools can be used on this Website to make it more efficient and user friendly, as well as for marketing and statistical purposes. These tools may include an automatic data collection by Humanise or by third parties on Humanise’s behalf. In general, this data does not contain personal details about the user. These tools include, without limitation, cookies, web beacons, tracking URLs or similar tools, and web analytics.
The collected data may include, without limitation:
The visitor’s IP address
The date and time of the visit
The referral URL (the website from which the visitor came)
The pages visited on this Website
Information on the browser used (type and browser version, operating system, etc.)
Web beacons, tracking URLs or similar tools, and cookies are primarily used for statistical analysis. These tools can also be used to monitor traffic patterns on websites, or to find out if an email has been received and opened, and if a reply was sent.
Web analytics is a method of collecting data and evaluating the behaviour of visitors to websites or mobile applications. It includes the analysis of traffic patterns to determine, for example, how often certain parts of a website or (mobile) application are visited, or to find out which information and services most interest visitors. This Website mostly uses clickstream data and other techniques described above. The web analytics used on this Website and Humanise’s mobile applications are managed by Google Analytics or other service providers.
This means that when you visit this Website, a Google Analytics cookie is stored on your computer or mobile device, except if the settings of your browser do not allow such cookies, as mentioned above. Furthermore, when you visit this Website, the web analytics described above—including clickstream data, data provided by web beacons and tracking URLs, and the information stored in Google Analytics cookies—will be sent to Google Analytics to be analyzed for Humanise.
Google Analytics acts as Humanise’s agent, which means that Humanise determines only the purposes for which the data is used, and that Google Analytics cannot disclose this information to third parties (except in cases where the law or a court order forces such disclosure). With regards to privacy, this means that Humanise is the “guarantor” and Google Analytics is the “data processor”.
Data use and storage
The data collected on this Website and any other information otherwise submitted to Humanise can be used to improve the content of this Website, for the purposes of marketing research and statistics, or to improve our services or provide you with information that may be of interest.
We use this data solely for the purposes for which it was collected. Your consent is required to use your personal information for marketing purposes other than those stated above. You can refuse the use of any of your data, or ask for it to be deleted or modified.
Humanise stores the data for a reasonable amount of time, either to achieve set objectives or be in accordance with the law, after which time the data is destroyed or made anonymous.
