The purpose of this Charter is to provide precise information on how the data received by Philippe Schoepen, 70 rue Gratès, 1170 Brussels, for the Boite à disques (blog over old recordstores), are used and processed. I will outline the procedures in place to protect privacy, how you can intervene at any time and what controls are in place to ensure strict compliance with this charter. The Data Controller is Philippe Schoepen, who can be reached at


This charter applies to the collection, management and use of your data by the entities belonging to Philippe Schoepen. I am therefore in accordance with the R.G.P.D.

The respect of your privacy is a priority for Philippe Schoepen. I am aware of your right to be informed about the way in which the data and information that could identify you personally (“your Data”), which you may provide to me, are processed. This Privacy Policy explains how I use your Data and the steps I take to keep it confidential and secure.

1. What “data” do I collect?

I collect your contact details such as your name, first name, postal address, e-mail address, mobile phone number, etc. I also save data obtained via third parties or through contracts, contact forms, payment data, orders, etc. Any other data you provide will also be collected.

In addition, I may collect data about you when you use my website, social networks, when you reply to me by e-mail, via cookies, navigation data and other technologies.

Generally, this data is requested in some way and you knowingly provide it to me.

2. Why do I collect this data?

Primarily, your data is used to send you information, news and publications that may be of interest to you.

On the other hand, I use your data to invite you to events, to inform you about my news, about news that might interest you, for direct marketing or to create profiles. The creation of profiles allows me to provide you with much more targeted and useful information.

If you do not wish to receive my newsletter or information about my services, you can unsubscribe at any time without having to give reasons. Simply send an email to my DPO whose contact details are given above. You will only receive electronic direct marketing communications if you have given your explicit permission. You can also unsubscribe from direct marketing communications at any time and free of charge.

I also use your data for statistical purposes and to improve my products and services. If I notice that my website or a particular page is experiencing a decline in visitors, I can check what the reason is. I can then modify and improve my website to make it easier for my readers to find the information they are looking for.

3. Database management

All personal data are managed by Philippe Schoepen. These data can only be passed on to his subcontractors insofar as this is useful for the realisation of their mission.

In order to be able to collect the data of my clients, I have chosen to keep a register in accordance with the model produced by the Commission de la Vie Privée.

4. Duration of the storage of your data

Philippe Schoepen will only keep your data for the period of time that is deemed reasonable and necessary for the purposes stated above.

5. Transfer to third parties

I do not sell or rent your data to external companies or persons at any time. I treat your data as confidential information.

6. The right to access, rectify and object to your data

When you become a reader or member of the La Boite à disques blog, I record certain data. You then have rights in relation to this collection: a right of access, of correction and of suppression of your data. This is also the case for all the people listed as recipients of information, communication relays, and all those listed in the contacts linked to social networks or others.

To do this, you simply need to send a clear request to Philippe Schoepen’s DPO, in which you mention precisely what you wish to see, correct or delete. Depending on your request, 

Philippe Schoepen reserves the right to request that your request be signed, dated and accompanied by a copy of the front of your identity card. If you want us to delete your data, you must also give specific reasons for your request. If these conditions are met, Philippe Schoepen will proceed with your request as soon as possible and will inform you of this, unless we consider that your request for deletion is against legal requirements.

7. Modification of the Privacy Policy

Philippe Schoepen reserves the right to modify the present Charter in order to comply with the modifications, adaptations, legislative evolutions relating to the protection of the private life data. It is up to you to regularly consult the Charter where the said adaptations will be dated at the end of the text.
