1. An overview of data protection
Data collection on the website
Who is responsible for the data collection on this website?
How do we collect your data?
Some data are collected when you provide it to us (registration to the newsletter mailing list).
Other data are collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. This data is primarily technical data such as the browser and operating system you are using or when you accessed the page. These data is collected automatically as soon as you use our website.
What do we use your data for?
We process your personal data to send you public newsletters from the project. In any case, we use only aggregated, non-personally identifiable data.
When visiting our website, statistical analyses may be made of your surfing behavior. This happens primarily using analytics. The analysis of your surfing behavior is anonymous, i.e. we will generally not be able to identify you from this data.
2. General information
Most personal data relating to the website will be deleted after a reasonable time. Thereafter, a part of the personal data may be stored only as long as such processing is required by law or is reasonably necessary for our legal obligations or legitimate interests such as legal proceedings, bookkeeping and internal reporting.
Notice concerning the controller
The controller’s contact details:
32 Avenue de Friedland
3. Your rights
Revocation of your consent to the processing of your data
Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal e-mail making this request is sufficient.
Withdrawing a consent may lead to fewer possibilities to use the services proposed on the website (registration to the newsletter mailing list). The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
Right to file complaints with regulatory authorities
If there has been a breach of data protection legislation, the person affected may file a complaint with the competent regulatory authorities. In case website visitors consider our processing of personal data to be inconsistent with the applicable data protection laws, a complaint may be lodged with the local supervisory authority for data protection. The competent regulatory authority for matters related to data protection legislation is the data protection officer of the French state in which our company is headquartered. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.cnil.fr/fr/rgpd-par-ou-commencer
Right to data portability
Website visitors have the right to receive their personal data that they have provided to us in a structured and commonly used format (excel file) and to independently transmit those data to a third party. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.
Rights to access, recification, erasure and restriction of processing
As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You can contact us at any time using the address given herein if you have further questions on the topic of personal data.
Website visitors have the right to have incorrect or incomplete personal data we have stored corrected or completed.
Website visitors may also ask us to erase their personal data from our systems. We will comply with such request unless we have a legitimate ground to not delete the data.
Right to object
Website visitors may object to the processing of personal data if such data is processed for other purposes than purposes necessary for the performance of services on the website or for compliance with a legal obligation. In case we do not have legitimate grounds to continue processing such personal data, we shall no longer process the personal data after your objection.
We will not use your personal data for direct marketing purposes.
4. Data security
We use administrative, organizational, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the personal data we collect and process. Measures include for example, where appropriate, firewalls and access right systems. Our security controls are designed to maintain an appropriate level of data confidentiality, integrity, availability, resilience and ability restore the data.
Should despite of the security measures, a security breach occur that is likely to have negative effects to the privacy of website visitors, we will inform the relevant website visitors and other affected parties, as well as relevant authorities when required by applicable data protection laws, about the breach as soon as possible.
