G. What data are collected? - Processing rationale

The personal data recorded in the database are processed within the framework of the public contract awarded to the CBC by the SPF Santé Publique, making it legally compulsory to identify all equidae resident on the territory of Belgium and to record them in a database.

In this context, certain information may be requested in order to verify the accuracy of the data. We refer to article 50 of the Royal Decree of 16 February 2016 concerning the identification and recording of equidae in a central database, which defines the rights and obligations of the central database manager, namely the CBC.

The purpose of the database is to allow updating of the data requested concerning the addresses of owners in the database of equidae, as provided for in the Royal Decree of 16 February 2016. Within the framework of the public contract awarded to the CBC, the CBC undertakes to send official documents (passports and changes of ownership), as well as invoices, to owners. The sole purpose of accessing the national data register is to verify the current addresses of owners in the case of returned correspondence, in order to prevent the loss of documents.

Personal data can also be processed under one of the following conditions: the person concerned has given consent; processing is necessary in order to execute a contract; processing is necessary in order to comply with a legal obligation; processing is necessary in order to safeguard vital interests; processing is necessary for the execution of a task in the public interest or to exercise public authority; or processing is necessary to safeguard legitimate interests.

The CBC delegates some of its tasks to two regional branches, namely the "PaardenPunt Vlaanderen" in Heverlee and the Confédération Wallonie-Bruxelles du Cheval in Ciney.
It is forbidden for these two parties to fulfil the obligations contracted between the CBC and users.
