We process your personal data that was shared on or via the Website solely for:

Performance of our services - customer management:

We process your personal data in order to contact you, process your requests and provide you with the necessary information about our company, our services, our website or other information related to our activities.

We also process your personal data for managing our customer files, executing and following up quotation requests, preparing, executing our services and executing and following up agreements with our customers, back office, customer service/help desk, payments, administration, invoicing, solvency follow-up and accounting.

We process your data or your company's data within the framework of the preparation and/or execution of the (service) agreement or on the basis of our justified (commercial) interests, which may outweigh your (privacy) rights (as you can reasonably expect such processing).

If you do not provide us with certain data, such as your identification data or financial data, which we need in the context of the agreement, we will not be able to execute the agreement and/or provide our services.

Prospect management:

We may process data about you as a potential customer or prospect, for the purpose of prospecting, canvassing, in the context of appointments or discussions, contacts, acquisition of customers, referrals, etc., or in preparation for a possible contract. This is possible due to our legitimate (commercial) interests, which may outweigh your (privacy) rights (as you can reasonably expect such processing in the context of prospecting).

Partner management:

Contacting and executing agreements with our partners, suppliers and service providers. We may also process personal data in this context if you are, for example, an employee or appointee of one of our partners, suppliers or service providers. We can do this in the framework of the agreement or on the basis of our legitimate (commercial) interest which, if applicable, outweighs your (privacy) rights (as you can reasonably expect such processing).

We may process your data in order to optimise our services. This can be done on the basis of your consent or our legitimate interests which may outweigh your (privacy) rights. For example, Joli may contact you to place a review or reference on our website (this will, however, be with your permission).

Direct marketing:

Your data may be used for direct marketing. This is to send you information about our services or other information that might be interesting or useful to you, via our newsletter or other means.

If you are a customer of ours, this may be based on our legitimate interests to do business which may override your (privacy) rights (as you can reasonably expect such processing as a customer). If you are not a customer of ours, you cannot reasonably expect such marketing and we need your prior consent (e.g. by signing up on our website). Your consent is free and can be withdrawn at any time.
