Conditions of use, copyrights and protection of privacy

Using this site implies that you accept the terms and conditions of use, described hereafter.

I. Purpose of the site

The BIPT website offers all available information on the services provided and the policies pursued by the different departments of the Belgian Institute for Postal Services and Telecommunications.

The information featuring on this site is correct but of a general nature. As a result, this information is not necessarily adapted to personal or specific circumstances and should therefore not be considered as personal, professional or legal advice.

It is also worth noting that the information and documents that are available on or through the Institute’s website should not be considered as authentic reproductions of texts that have been officially adopted. Only the official texts published in the Moniteur Belge may be considered as authentic. Whenever discrepancies occur between the electronic version and the printed text, the official printed text published in the Moniteur Belge takes priority.

II. Content and availability of the www.bipt.be website

BIPT keeps its website up to date to ensure that the available information is complete, correct, exhaustive and updated. If despite these efforts errors do occur in the content provided, the Institute will do its utmost to correct these as quickly as possible.

BIPT tries to avoid interruptions due to technical problems as much as possible. However, the Institute cannot guarantee that its website will be completely exempt from interruptions or will not be affected by other problems of a technical nature.

The BIPT website and the websites to which the Institute's site refers may include links to other websites of authorities, bodies and organisations over which BIPT has no control, either technical or regarding content. Therefore, the Institute cannot offer any guarantee as to the exhaustive or correct nature of their content any more than on the availability of these websites. BIPT disclaims all responsibility for direct or indirect damage arising from visiting or using the websites or the information provided on the websites that the Institute’s website refers to.

III. Copyrights

Unless stated otherwise, the information found on the www.bipt.be website is exempt from copyright. The information may be used free of charge, provided the source is mentioned and the use is strictly personal. When prior authorisation is required for the use or reproduction of certain information, the limits to that use are expressly stated. The use and reproduction of multimedia content (including, inter alia, images, sounds and software applications) are always subject to prior approval.

BIPT reserves all intellectual property rights on the www.bipt.be website. When content that can be consulted on or through the BIPT website is supplied by third parties and is copyright-protected, this restricts the possibilities for use and reproduction, which is then subject to prior authorisation from the respective author(s).

IV. Protection of privacy
