Protection of personal data
Lighthouse attaches great importance to respecting the right to privacy. The policy on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data by Lighthouse is thus based on Regulation (EU) 2018/1725 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2018.
‘Personal data’ means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; an identifiable person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identification number or to one or more factors specific to his or her identity. In principle access to the information available on or via the websites of Lighthouse does not require any personal data to be supplied by the user. However, in order to use certain online services,, you may be asked to supply some information about yourself, such as contact details (name and first name, profession, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number or nationality) when filling in a form.
In this regard:

- Lighthouse will disclose information to third parties only if that is necessary for the purposes specified and only to the categories of recipients mentioned. Lighthouse will not divulge your personal data for direct marketing purposes. Lighthouse furthermore undertakes to take appropriate security measures to safeguard these data from misuse by third parties.

These data may, however, be kept for a longer period for historical, statistical or scientific purposes, without prejudice to any other provision of Regulation (EU) No. 2018/1725 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 23 October 2018.
