Who we share your data with


Affiliate marketing is the process of earning income every time you promote someone elses products or services. If you generate a sale by that promotion for the company, you get paid. If you don’t generate a sale, you do not get paid.

Some products on shop.infosteel.eu are promoted by affiliates. In that case sales information (who, what, at what price) is shared with the affiliate. We require from our affiliates to deal with this information according to the applicable legislation. We openly publish the “Affiliate Terms of Programm and Service“.


For some services (“subscriptions”) available on shop.infosteel.be, Infosteel acts as reseller. To allow the original publisher/service provider to perform his tasks, it is often necessary to provide this orginal publisher/service provider with all or some of the data provided by the buyer towards Infosteel.

These websites may collect data about you, use cookies, embed additional third-party tracking, and monitor your interaction with that embedded content, including tracking your interaction with the embedded content if you have an account and are logged in to that website.
