1. Scope of application

As used in this privacy policy (the “Policy”), the terms "using" and "processing" of Personal Data (as defined below) include subjecting the personal information to statistical or other analysis and using or handling personal information in any way, including, but not limited to collecting, storing, evaluating, modifying, deleting, using, combining, disclosing and transferring as detailed in this Privacy.

EDI ("we" or "us") provides this Policy to inform you of our procedures regarding the collection, use and disclosure of Personal Data of any person who uses the services provided by EDI, the Website and/or the Application (the “Users” or “you”).

2. What information do we collect?

EDI collects and processes several types of information: (i) information you provide to us, (ii) information that are collected by third parties and provided to us and (iii) information relating to the User’s use of the Website and/or the Application (collectively the “Personal Data”). Personal Data shall have the meaning as ascribed to it in applicable Belgian and European law.

Please note that we do not process so-called "sensitive" Personal Data such as data relating to, for example, your racial or ethnic origin, your political, religious or philosophical beliefs, your life and/or sexual orientation and your health. Should we ever be obliged to process such Personal Data, we will

only do so with your explicit consent and for purposes that have been previously communicated to you, or if their processing is necessary to comply with legal obligations.

2.1. Information you or your employer provide to us:


When you decide to sign up to our Website and/or the Application, proceed to a purchase or a request for EDI services, you are voluntarily providing us with certain individually identifiable information that we collect and process.

Such Personal Data may include but is not limited to your name, date of birth, gender, physical address, email address, telephone number, national register number, billing information, bank account or other payment details, hobbies, technical data about your vehicle or the load of your vehicle.

We may also process additional information you may choose to provide to us on your account (i.e. personal data which must not compulsorily be given through the subscription process).

Location data:

EDI may offer features designed to help you to use the services on the Website and on the Application, such as to locate available charging stations. You will be given the opportunity to opt-in to location- based services. If you do not opt-in to location-based services, you will not have access to the features necessary to use the services. In case of opt-in, we collect and process location data when you sign up and use our services.

The geolocation history is not stored, and you can always deactivate geolocation.


When you contact our customer service or anyone of the EDI staff, by email or by telephone call, we may keep a record of that correspondence and collect the necessary information to classify your question, respond to it and, if applicable, investigate any breach of our Terms and Conditions or this Policy. Moreover, your contact details might be used to notify you about changes in our Terms and Conditions or this Policy.

Contests, promotions and feedback:

When you participate in a contest or promotion organised by EDI, we will ask you for the necessary Personal Data to manage the concerned contest or promotion such as a name, email address, phone number, age or place of residence. When you take a survey or give us feedback on the use of the Application and/or the Website, we may ask for some Personal Data to perform a follow-up of your feedback.

2.2. Information that we learn about you but that were not collected by EDI:

When you buy, rent or lease a vehicle and request for more information about EDI services or about any electric device sold by EDI, your car dealer may collect some of your Personal Data to transfer them to EDI in order for us to contact you.

Such Personal Data may include but is not limited to your name, gender, physical address, email address, telephone number or technical data about your vehicle or the load of your vehicle.

2.3. Information we learn about you from your use of the Website and/or the Application:

We may process your IP address and certain non-personal information or aggregated data about how and when you use the Website and/or the Application. This information is usually of a technical nature (device settings and information, including but not limited to the type of browser, operating system, keyboard language, screen resolution, IP address, location, etc.) and of a behavioral nature (the actions taken by you on the Website and/or the Application, including but not limited to access times, pages requested, actions executed, etc.) and is used to compile statistical data about the use of our Website and/or our Application.

3. Purposes of collecting information

EDI only processes Personal Data for the following purposes:

3.1. Execution of a contract (art. 6, §1, b) of the GDPR):

We process certain Personal Data (e.g. gender, name, phone number, email address, date of birth, national register number, billing information, bank account or other payment details, technical data about

your vehicle, location data or geolocation if you want to benefit from such service) to execute the contract between you and us allowing us and the concerned service providers to process your interests in our products & services offering or to confirm purchases, to inform you in case of problem, to treat your requests through our customer service or troubleshoot any problems, to show you charging stations near your location, to inform you of the completion of the work requested on the charging station installation or to schedule a meeting.

For the execution of our services, we rely on third parties’ providers:

• Data processors: we may rely on third party service providers to offer our products and services. Only to the extent required (i.e. to perform specific tasks on our behalf such as the storage of data, the transfer of data, targeted communication on the Website and/or the Application), such third-party service providers will have access to your Personal Data. Once such third-party service provider has completed its specific task and their legal relationship with EDI, they will no longer have access to your Personal Data except as required by law.

Our subcontractors are listed in a register of processing activities (kept internally). We ensure that all our subcontractors provide the same level of protection for your Personal Data as we do (including subcontractors located outside the European Economic Area).

• Joint controllers: other parties may rely on the Website and/or the Application. In that case, such third parties act as controllers or joint controllers along with EDI and are responsible for the processing operations of your Personal Data that they do and you should refer, along with this Privacy Policy, to their specific privacy policy in this respect. For example, Threeforce BV (Last Mile Solutions) will process some of your Personal Data as you register on the Website and/or Application (their privacy policy is available on this link).

In such a case, EDI may transfer your Personal Data to the third party that offered the services you used (such as your email address, name or phone number) in the extent it is necessary to enable you to use the services provided by the concerned third party (split-billing, etc.) and/or in case of illegal use of the third-party services.

Should you wish to know in more details to which third parties your Personal Data and which Personal Data have been disclosed, please refer to section 6 below on your rights.

3.2. Compliance with legal obligations (art. 6, §1, c) of the GDPR):

We may also process your Personal Data in order to comply with the law, to complete all legally obligated paperwork in each country/region in which either the User or EDI is active, in case of illegal use of our services or when we receive orders from legal authorities.

3.3. Legitimate interests (art. 6, §1, f) of the GDPR):

Beyond the collection of your Personal Data to provide our services to you or to comply with legal obligations, we may collect and use your Personal Data for the following purposes:
