tel: +32 475 37 65 13Route description

In a former inn you will find in the heart of Oostvleteren a stylish (5 stars) holiday residence for 10 people: "Amatus".

Oostvleteren is located in the Westhoek, more specifically in the green Ijzer valley which has many walking and cycling routes.

Within a radius of 20 km you will find cultural-historical cities such as Ypres, Veurne, Diksmuide and Poperinge (with the well-known community of Watou) as well as coastal municipalities such as De Panne and Koksijde.

The municipality of Vleteren is a real beer village because of the 3 breweries, namely:
- Struise Brouwers at 400m from the holiday home,
- the Sint-Sixtus Abbey in Westvleteren and the Deca brewery in Woesten.

The sense of space is central to the Amatus holiday home.
The interior was done with an eye for detail.
The choice was made for high-quality (design) materials, where possible Belgian-made.

Although quietly located, butchery, bakery, convenience store and various restaurants are within walking distance of the holiday home.
The local bakery is also happy to offer you the "breakfast-to-house-delivered" option.

Bicycles (e-bikes) can be rented in the immediate vicinity of the house; bicycles can be safely stored in a locked bicycle shed.

For questions that are more than a request for information we can ask you to identify you, so that we can be sure that we provide the requested information and data to the right person.

When and for what purposes does Amatus collect and process data?

Amatus collects and processes information about you when you, as a customer, appeal to us for the rental of the holiday home and when you contact us in another way. We summarize those activities under the heading of "customer management".

If you are a supplier, we process your data or that of your contact persons in the context of the delivery of products or services, for the generic purpose "supplier administration".

We also process your data, as a customer or as a supplier in the preparation of invoices and other accounting documents. This is the purpose of "accounting".

 Finally, we may process data about you because it is or may be important for our activities, for example to be able to call upon your advice or services. We describe these activities as "communication" or "public relations".

What data does Amatus collect and process?

It is about the information you give us and that we need for the implementation of the project for which you rely on us (ie the rental of the holiday home) such as your name, address, e-mail address, telephone number and any professional data. such as company name and VAT number.

We can process certain data from suppliers / subcontractors to allow us to plan the works properly. This concerns the availability and presence, as well as the type of work.

We process financial data in the context of accounting.

Data about your position and activities are processed in the context of communication or public relations.

We keep your personal data on our systems as long as necessary for the relevant service, or as long as it is recorded in a relevant contract that you have with us. We regularly evaluate our retention periods for personal data.

We may also be forced to retain certain types of data in order to comply with legal obligations.

How does Amatus collect your data?

We collect your data when you complete forms (paper or electronic). Sometimes this happens through a conversation, telephone contact or mail exchange.

Normally we obtain this information directly from you. Sometimes it is also possible that we obtain them indirectly. This is the case with data about employees of suppliers / subcontractors and which we obtain from the suppliers themselves.

With direct marketing, we may also obtain your information from third parties. Where we have obtained your data we will then share with you.

Where the processing is not necessary to carry out the contractual relationship, such as in direct marketing and communication / public relations, it is based on our legitimate interests as a company, in particular the freedom of enterprise and information. In doing so, we always ensure that there is a balance between our and your interests, for example by granting you a right of opposition.

In principle, your data will not be passed on to third countries or international organizations.

This could possibly happen in the context of contracts for cloud services that we conclude. Then your data may be stored on servers in third countries where in principle only we have access to it. In that case we ensure that the provider of these services is located in a third country with an adequate level of protection or that an agreement is signed with that provider to protect your rights.
