The CAE and the protection of personal data

The main mission of the Fund (hereinafter CAE) is the management and payment of both family benefits and parental leave, in accordance with the provisions of Book IV of the Luxembourg Social Security Code.

As part of exercising its missions, the CAE (BP394 L-2013 Luxembourg) acts as a data controller, collecting and processing your personal data in compliance with the legal rules on data protection and private life.

As such, the CAE collects and uses all the personal data necessary for processing applications for family benefits and parental leave (analysis of the law, gathering all documents for the case file, payment), the processing of garnishments and transfers of family allowances, as well as the recovery of undue payments.

The personal data processed by the CAE, or part of them, may be communicated to other institutions with which it collaborates, when legal, regulatory or contractual provisions allow or require it.  

These data can also be used for statistical purposes.

The CAE keeps your personal data in accordance with its legal obligations or for the period necessary to achieve the purposes for which they were collected.
