General personal data protection  and confidential policy


On May 25 2018, the European regulation N° 2016/679, known as the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), comes into force. This regulation applies in all member states of the European Union as well as in every legal entity operating on the territory of the European Union. The main objective of the regulation is to establish a reference text for the protection of personal data, which strengthens, unifies and harmonizes data protection for all individuals in the European Union. In addition, the regulation even applies to bodies outside the territory of the European Union, which deal with data from EU nationals. 

This present privacy policy applies to the processing of personal data by the Cercle Luxembourgeois de l'Aérostation (CLA) and by websites managed by the CLA.

We value careful management of your personal data. This includes that we manage your personal data confidentially, that we have taken security measures to protect your personal data from loss, unauthorized access or theft, and that we will delete the data when it is no longer necessary for our assosiatif and nonprofit work.

Your rights to your personal data

  • You have the right to apply to view, correct or delete your personal data

  • You have a right to object to any use of your data for incentive purposes (which the CLA does not do)..

  • SIf a member no longer wants the CLA to use its data (as part of the management of members as described above), this implies the resignation of the member in question.

  • If you apply for the right to review, correct, delete or object, we will start by determining whether we can take your request into consideration. We cannot take your application into consideration if we cannot establish your identity or if you recently (less than six months ago) filed a similar application.

  • If we have taken your request into consideration, there are a number of situations in which we must reject the application. For example, we will have to reject the application if the protection of the rights of a third party weighs more heavily. This can happen if your request for review also relates to other people's personal data. If we reject the request, we are in writing, within six weeks, why we cannot meet the request.

  • If you do not agree with our decision regarding an application for the right to review, correct, delete or object, you can file a complaint with the National Data Protection Commission: :
