Special and/other sensitive personal particulars that we process
Our website and/or service does not intend to collect particulars about website visitors below the age of 16 years, unless they have been authorized by their parents or tutor. We are however not able to check whether a visitor is older than 16. That is why we advise parents to be closely associated with their children’s online activities, in order to prevent children’s particulars from being collected without parental authorization. If you are convinced that we have collected a minor’s personal particulars without such an authorization, please contact us at, and we will delete that information.

  • to manage the contractual relationship between yourself and Coppens GCV (Larcosan) because of the fact that you are using our services and/or that you are providing us with yours.
