Duration of the period the personal data will be stored
Your personal information will be kept in an identifiable form only for the time necessary for the processing for which it was collected and in compliance with the regulations in force.

Your data will be retained for the purposes of newsletters and other e-mails up to your request for cancellation, limitation or deletion, and within three years of their collection by the controller or last incoming contact with the controller. At the end of this period, the data will be destroyed in accordance with the measures prescribed by the legislation in force.

Certain data may be retained for an additional period of time for the management of claims and/or litigation as well as to meet our legal or regulatory obligations or to respond to requests from authorized authorities.

Your "explicit" consent is necessary
Indeed, to be able to exchange with you and/or your representation, we are and will be brought to exchange mutually and directly in the future, by any means of modern communication available, to answer your waitings and your requests, as well as your questions. This is to inform you and accompany you as efficiently as possible.

For example, we make you benefit from our latest information by sending newsletters or e-mailing via the use of your email address.

However, we remind you that you can at any time unsubscribe (by clicking on this link), if you do not wish to receive them but also to access to your information and to modify them on request.

This process is not new to us all, and allows for fruitful exchanges on condition, of course, of integrity and confidentiality; in order to answer the new European regulation which asks us your agreement to exploit your coordinates and your identity within the framework of our relations.
By default, and considering your loyalty, we consider that we have your agreement.

This is an opportunity for us to reaffirm our commitment and the special attention we pay to the protection of your personal data stored on our own servers, and that we take care not to disclose it to a third party.

What are the main principles of the GPRD?
The purpose of the GPRD is to strengthen and standardize data protection legislation in the European Union. It aims to protect the rights of individuals against the unwanted and potentially malicious use of their data.

More rights: Any entity responsible for data processing must take steps to ensure the respectful use of the personal data of the data subjects.
They have the right to access and modify these data, but also to the erasure and to object the profiling related to their treatments.
More security: Companies have an obligation to put in place protective measures to secure the data for which they are responsible and to notify any flaws, if for example sensitive data are stolen, in case of cyber attack.
More sanctions: the CNIL now has the possibility of imposing heavier financial penalties, to be more dissuasive.
