In particular, your personal data are processed in order for us to answer your messages and communicate with you and is based on commercial legitimate interest of our Company. Your consent is required, so the company can send you its latest news and publication. When your personal data is necessary for the performance of a contract, failure to provide such personal may prevent performance of such contract.

Your personal data is kept during 3 years after your last contact with the Company.

Additionally, the Company may automatically collect or process personally identifiable data (such as your internet domain or IP address) as part of the operation of this web site or during the course of your activities on or use of this web site. In nearly all cases, this data may be collected or processed by, and transferred to, the Company facilities in France and in other countries where the Company does business; the data is then subjected to the legal systems of those countries. By using this web site (which resides in part on servers located in France), you unambiguously consent to any collection, processing, transfer or use of any personal data. If you do not consent to any collection, processing, transfer or use of such information, please discontinue use of this web site.

 

2) Sharing with Affiliates

We share so much of our data, including personally identifiable information about you, with our Affiliates throughout the world. To the extent that these entities have access to your information, they will follow privacy practices no less protective than our practices described in this document, to the extent allowed by applicable law, including if the entity is situated outside the EU, the Company has applied standard contractual clauses validated by the European Commission and a contract that warrants adequate protection level.

 

3) Recipients of Personal Data and Data Transfers in-/ouside of the European Economic Area

1. When and why may we share your personal data

We will only share your personal data with third parties and other recipients where we have an appropriate legal ground under the GDPR, which permits us to do so. Commonly, this could include situations where we are legally obliged to provide the information (e.g. to data protection authorities), to comply with our contractual duties (e.g. to an affiliated company, if necessary in terms of our business relation.), where it is necessary in our legitimate interest (e.g. for compliance reasons), or where you have given your express consent to do so (e.g. to third-party Cookie providers).
We have also engaged certain service providers that process your data on our behalf and, therefore, are so-called data processors (e.g. our provider of the website and agencies that help us managing our content thereof). Such data processors are contractually obliged to solely process your personal data based on our contractual agreement and in line with our predefined instructions. As data processors our service providers are also recipients of your personal data.

2. Data Transfers in-/outside the European Economic Area

In general, the processing of your personal data is based inside the European Economic area (EEA). However, in terms of providing this website and its functionalities we may use certain service providers and/or third-party service provider (in the following recipients) that receive your personal data (see under 3.), which may not process your personal data inside, but in a country outside the EEA. The transfer to service providers outside the EEA takes place on the basis of the so-called adequacy decision by the EU Commission pursuant to Art. 45 GDPR or on the basis of the Standard Data Protection Clauses of the European Union as an appropriate safeguard according to Art. 46 GDPR to ensure an adequate level of data protection in regard of the processing of your personal data.
However, when sharing your personal data with a recipient that is established in a country outside the EEA based on Standard Data Protection Clauses, it may be that the processing is not appropriately safeguarded due to the specific national laws applying to the recipient in such a country. This includes sharing your personal data with and the transfer of your personal data to recipients in the USA. Such transfers of personal data may not be based on appropriate safeguards due to the fact that US authorities are allowed under US law to access and use such data transferred from the EU to the US without any specific exemptional reasons and means of a right to object to such illegitimate access for affected non-US American data subjects. Furthermore, these transfers are not regulated in such a way that would meet requirements equivalent to those existing under EU law specifically regarding the principle of proportionality as monitoring programs based on US legislation are not limited to what is strictly necessary.
Therefore, when we are aware that your personal data may be transferred to the US, e.g. to Google LLC or other recipients, we ensure to collect your express consent and inform you in this Privacy Policy about the corresponding risk that your data may not be appropriately safeguarded regarding illegitimate access or use, before such transfer takes place.
