INSIDERS SERVICES
The Grapevine bvba offers services by the name of “The Insiders/ Les initiés” on the website of the same name. The Insiders webpage offers registered members the chance to participate in Insider campaigns, as well as the possible use of certain services (such as polls, discounts, downloads...).


REGISTRATION
In order to use the website and participate in Insider campaigns, a user must first create an account by filling in a registration form with personal details (name, e-mail, address) and non-personal information (interests, activities, etc). Only 1 account can be created and used per person. After an account has been created, every user will receive an e-mail at the given e-mail address which will contain a link to activate the account. Every member has his own unique login (e-mail address) and password. It is the responsibility of the member to keep the account information and password confidential. In the event of improper use of the user name and password by a third party, the member will immediately inform The Insiders.


USER CONDITIONS
To register, a member must be at least 14 years old, have a valid e-mail address and postal address. If you are under 18, permission from your parents or guardian must be obtained. This must be confirmed when you sign up.

For campaigns with alcoholic beverages, the minimum age is 18 years. Please also refer to the strict regulations set out in the Code of Conduct.

Only natural persons can become members (no companies or official bodies).

Every member must provide accurate information about him/herself in order to sign up as a member and take part in Insider campaigns. Providing incorrect or misleading information will influence the level of service that The Grapevine bvba offers to clients. Therefore, The Grapevine bvba reserves the right at all times to remove the account of a member when misleading or deliberately incorrect personal details were provided. It is forbidden to make racist, discriminating, aggressive or any other comments that may cause immediate or consequential damage to The Insiders, its members or third parties. Consequently, they will immediately be removed from the website. The Grapevine bvba reserves the right to remove the account of members who violate these rules.

The Grapevine bvba reserves the right to modify, suspend or discontinue campaigns with or without informing members. In the event that this right is enforced, The Grapevine bvba cannot be held liable for immediate or consequential damage or cannot be held responsible by any member or third party.

Members are not allowed to sell any products they receive from campaigns. The Grapevine bvba reserves the right to remove the account of members who violate this rule.


PRIVACY POLICY
When using our website, various information is collected about our users on different pages and at different times.

The Grapevine bvba is the sole owner of this information. The Grapevine bvba may disclose this information anonymously to clients, users or third parties. This means that we may pass on demographic or statistic information but which can never be linked directly to your personal details or personal account.

Personal details such as first name, surname, address, e-mail, telephone, number, date of birth and marital status can be modified or removed by the user at any time. In the latter case, this means closing the account.

We do not sell, rent or share these personal details to third parties other than described above. Only with the express consent of the user, may personal details be passed on to third parties (opt-in).

When registering with The Insiders, you can opt-in to receive e-mails from us. If you do not enable this setting, the chances of participating in a campaign will significantly reduce as we will not always be able to keep you up-to-date.

We regularly conduct surveys to ask for your opinion or ideas to improve the website or our services. This we may share with our business partners and third parties in order for them to have a better understanding of our users' opinions on certain matters or the type of people that use our website. All information collected (responses on blogs, reports, e-mails with suggestions, questions and ideas) are property of The Grapevine bvba and may be used and shared with third parties.

None of this information can be traced back to a particular person and is only of interest to The Grapevine bvba.


COPYRIGHT
The content of The Insiders campaigns, materials, services and website - including all other websites fully or partly under the management of The Grapevine bvba- such as texts, images, logos, icons, software and other content (hereafter called “Insider Content”) may not be copied, reproduced, republished, downloaded, mailed, transmitted or shared. Exceptions may occur during the course of Insider campaigns, which will then be explicitly stated.

We are not responsible for the material that is posted on our website. However, we closely monitor our website for racist, discriminating, aggressive or any other comments that may cause immediate or consequential damage to The Insiders, its members or third parties which will consequently be removed from the website.

If our website contains links that, once clicked on, take you to the websites of other companies, we checked the content of these sites at the time the link was created.

Therefore, The Grapevine bvba is unable to guarantee that the content of those websites complies with the legal requirements and cannot be held responsible for any damage that may result from the content or use of these sites.

SECURITY
We closely monitor all personal details provided during the registration process and all additional information collected via our website on different pages and at different times, to avoid data breaches and abuse. This information is secure, both on-line (via login name and password) and off-line. Access to personal details of our users is limited within our offices. Only employees who require information to complete a specific task, will be granted temporary access to personal details. Servers that store personal details are housed in a secure environment and are professionally maintained. Users are fully and personally responsible for keeping their password and account information confidential.


E-MAILS AND OPT-INS
Users are given the option to not receive any e-mails from The Insiders (opt-out). If this is the case, the chances of participating in a campaign significantly reduce as we will not always be able to keep you up-to-date.

We send all new members a welcome e-mail to verify their login and password. Members who we are allowed to contact via e-mail (opt-in), will occasionally receive e-mails with news, updates about new or current campaigns, rewards, answers to reports or other interesting facts that take place at The Insiders. Don't worry, we won't spam you and unnecessarily fill up your mailbox.

Contact preferences for your account can be changed at any time.


SITE & SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENTS
In exceptional circumstances we may have to send an e-mail to specific or all users to make important announcements about The Insiders site or service changes. It is impossible to opt-out of these announcements. This announcement will firstly appear on-line. We reserve the right to contact users to improve errors in their account or to ask for information that is crucial to The Insiders.


INSIDER POINTS
Insider points have no value, cannot be exchanged for cash and are non-transferable. Points can only be used for products offered on this website. The number of points awarded for an activity is described on the website. This number may vary and is individually determined by The Grapevine bvba. At any time, The Grapevine bvba reserves the right to modify, expand or reduce the points scheme with or without prior notification to the members. Minors can only redeem points with permission from their parents or guardian.

 

CLOSING OF ACCOUNT
Both members and The Insiders reserve the right to terminate the service at any time by going to “My Profile” on the website. The Grapevine bvba cannot be held liable by a member or third parties as a result of closing the account.

 

FORCE OF TERMS OF USE
