What do we use your data for?

Black Tiger Belgium may use your data for two types of purposes:

  1. Data Quality
  2. Internal use

Each of these purposes is described in more detail below

1. Data quality

In the context of our data quality activities, we use data to confirm or validate the data provided by our clients and/or to improve the quality of the data by means of formatting, standardization, slight correction ( numerical or spelling), and/or internal linking (‘matching’) of the data.

Example 1: companies ask us to check whether the data they have in tis also present in our file. In this case, we do not actually pass on your data to them; we only tell them whether the data being examined is the same as ours or not.

Example 2: We can, for example, correct a postcode that does not correspond to the street indicated, communicate a move or correct the spelling of a name.

Example 3: Sometimes a customer has several pieces of data about you but has not linked them together, for example because they were not collected on the same occasion. In this case, we can use our data to carry out this operation, for example if in our file we have the following data For example, if in our file we have the following data: Mrs Sophie Dubois, rue du Bois, 1000 Boisvert, tel: 01.123.45.67, s.dubois@skynet.be and in the client’s file we find on the one hand Mrs Dubois and her postal address and on the other hand sophie.dubois@skynet.be and the telephone number 01.123.45.67, we will indicate to the client that they are the same person.

2. Internal use
