All content of the site may be modified, amended or supplemented at any time without a heads-up or notice. NOMAD does not guarantee the proper functioning of the website and can in no way be held liable for a malfunction or temporary (un)availability of the website or for any form of damage, direct or indirect, which would result from access to or usage of the website.

NOMAD can in no way be held liable to anyone, directly or indirectly, special or otherwise, for damage attributable to the use of this site, including, without limitation, all losses, work interruptions, damage to programs or other data on the computer system, of equipment, software or other of the user.

The website contains hyperlinks to websites or pages of third parties, or indirect references. Placing links to these websites or pages does not imply endorsement of their content.

NOMAD explicitly declares that it has no control over the content or other features of these websites and can in no way be held liable for the content or features thereof or for any other form of damage resulting from its use.



NOMAD attaches importance to your privacy. While most of the information on this site is available without providing any personal information, the user may be asked for personal information. This information will only be used in the context of customer management. Your personal data will never be passed on to third parties (and in the unlikely case if so, it will be clearly communicated to whom).

NOMAD may collect anonymous or aggregated data of a non-personal nature, such as browser type or IP address, the operating system you use or the domain name of the website through which you came to our website, or the web address through which you leave it. This enables us to continuously improve our website for users.



During a visit of our site, cookies may be placed on the hard drive of your computer and this only to better tailor our site to the needs of our returning visitors. These mini-files or cookies are not used to check the surfing behavior of the visitor on other websites. Your internet browser allows you to prevent the use of cookies, to receive a warning when a cookie is installed or to delete the cookies from your hard drive afterwards. Consult the help function of your internet browser for these options.



Every customer can count on their personal data being processed in a fair and lawful manner. This means that the data will only be processed for the legitimate purposes described above. NOMAD furthermore guarantees that the processing is always sufficient, proportionate and not excessive.

NOMAD may transfer your data to marketing/CRM tools that can process the data for an analysis of surfing behavior in order to send targeted notifications. Third party cookies can be installed for this. We will never keep your personal data longer than is strictly necessary. However, we will keep your information for as long as your account is active or as long as we need your personal information in order to provide you with a particular service.

NOMAD has taken sufficient technical and organizational measures to guarantee the safe processing of your personal data. These measures correspond to the nature of the personal data and are proportionate to the possible seriousness of the risk.

The risk of accidental or unauthorized destruction, loss, alteration, access to and any other unauthorized processing of the data is minimized. Unfortunately, no risk can be completely avoided. If unauthorized access is obtained to the IT systems of NOMAD we will immediately take all possible measures to minimize the damage to and/or the theft of the data and report it where relevant.



Any customer can object to the processing of their personal data. The customer may object at any time, free of charge and without further ado, to the proposed processing of his personal data if the data was obtained for marketing purposes.

You also have the right to demand that all your personal data obtained that is incomplete or irrelevant be deleted and/or to determine that it may not be used, regardless of the processing purpose. This also applies to personal data that may not be recorded, disclosed and retained, or personal data that is still retained after the allowed period has expired. You can exercise this right at any time, free of charge and without further justification.

The customer can exercise this right by means of a signed written request addressed to NOMAD sent by registered mail. NOMAD agrees to take appropriate action within fifteen (15) working days of receipt of the request.



Any customer who can prove his identity has the right to access all information about the processing of his personal data by NOMAD, as set out in the Privacy Act. This includes information about the purposes of this processing, the type of information processed and the categories of recipients to whom the data is disclosed. This privacy statement is a first indication.

The customer can exercise this right by means of a signed written request addressed to NOMAD sent by registered mail. NOMAD agrees to take appropriate action within fifteen (15) working days of receipt of the request.



NOMAD attaches great importance to the collection of accurate data. Incorrect or incomplete personal data can therefore always be corrected or even deleted.

Because we cannot always be aware of any errors with regard to, the incompleteness or inaccuracy of your personal data, it is up to you, the customer, to report inaccuracies or omissions and make the necessary corrections to your registered data.

If you are unable to do the necessary yourself, please contact us by means of a signed written request sent by certified mail.  NOMAD will take the necessary measures within fifteen (15) working days by making changes or corrections to your personal data or by deleting your personal data. Since the deletion mainly relates to visibility, it is therefore possible that the deleted personal data will remain temporarily stored.



Belgian law applies to this site. In the event of a dispute, only the courts of the district RPR Antwerp are competent.
