Your privacy is important to us. We respect it and are committed to protecting it. Below, we explain our privacy practices and how your information is collected and used to optimise your experience on this website.
1 - What is personal data?
Personal data is all information of any nature, collected in any type of medium, relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. It is considered identifiable the set of information that can lead to the identification of a certain person, namely by reference to an identifier (such as an identification number or a location data).
Our company only collects data that is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed.
2 - What kind of personal information do we collect?
We sometimes request personal identification data when you request a service, answer a survey, participate in a contest, exchange correspondence with us or perform other actions. You can always decide whether you want to proceed with any action that requests personal information.
However, if you do not wish to provide the requested data, you may not be able to complete the desired action. Similarly, when you visit our website, we will collect information known as "clickstreams" (IP address, domain name, etc).
This information, combined with the data you have provided us with, enables us to personalise your visits.
3 - What personal data do we process and how do we collect it?
To fulfil the various purposes, we may collect the following data:
contact data (such as mobile phone, address or e-mail) banking, financial and transaction data (such as IBAN or tax identification number);
location data (such as IP address);
As a rule, our company does not collect special data, such as health data or data relating to offences or criminal offences.
4 - Why do we use personal data?
All data collected and processed by our company is based on one of the following conditions of legitimacy:
Consent: when the collection is preceded by your express, specific and informed consent, through written support or via the web. We collect your consent, for example, for purposes related to the subscription of newsletters, provision of a service, etc. Execution of a contract or pre-contractual steps: This condition will be fulfilled when we process your data for the purpose of managing funding and cooperation programmes and protocols or supply and service contracts. Compliance with legal obligations: when the processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation. This includes, for example, the communication of data to other public (national and Community), tax or judicial bodies.
5 - What is the data conservation period?
Our company processes and keeps your data only for the period necessary to pursue or complete the purposes of the processing for which they are intended, in compliance with the maximum periods necessary to comply with contractual, legal or regulatory obligations.
As a general rule, and where a contract exists that legitimises the processing of your data, our company will keep such data for as long as such contractual relationship continues. Other circumstances exist, such as the fulfilment of legal or regulatory obligations (for example, for the purposes of fulfilling tax obligations, personal data relating to invoicing must be kept for a maximum period of ten years from the performance of the act), as well as the pendency of a judicial process, which may legitimise the keeping of your data for a longer period of time.
6 - What are your rights?
Right of access: right allowing you to obtain information regarding the processing of your data and its characteristics (in particular the type of data, the purpose of processing, to whom your data may be disclosed, storage periods and which data you must provide compulsorily or optionally).
Right of rectification: you may request that your data be rectified, requiring it to be accurate and up-to-date.
Right to erasure of data or "Right to be forgotten": you may request that your data be erased when you consider that there are no valid grounds for storing it and that there is no other valid ground for justifying such processing (such as performance of a contract or compliance with a legal or regulatory obligation).
Right to Limitation: you may request the suspension of processing or the limitation of processing to certain categories of data or purposes.
Right to Portability: you may request that your data be sent in a digital format and in a commonly used format that allows the re-use of your information. Alternatively, you may request the transmission of your data to another entity that becomes responsible for the processing of your information.
Right to object: you may object to certain purposes provided that there are no legitimate interests overriding your interests. An example of this right is the right to object to direct marketing purposes.
