Hereafter the “Policy”
Protecting your privacy is important to us. We therefore consider it essential to inform you about the way in which we collect, store, use and process the personal data and information that you communicate to us through this website (hereinafter the “Website”). As a general rule, we collect your personal data only through the various contact, registration and login forms and when you visit the Website (see the Cookies section).
This Policy covers “personal data and information” that we collect through this Website. “Personal data and information” refers to data that personally identifies you, either separately or in combination with other information we have.
We make every effort to be as clear as possible. However, if you are unfamiliar with such terms as “cookies”, “IP addresses”, or “browsers”, we invite you to find out about these terms beforehand.
What information and personal data do we collect?
This Website contains a contact form allowing you to submit questions. Using this form, we ask you to provide us with your first name and surname, email address and any other information you may wish to provide.
The information we collect about you in this way is solely intended to enable us to respond to your question. This information will not be transmitted to a third party or archived beyond the time required to process your request.
The personal data collected via the contact form will be kept in our contact databases for the time required to answer your question. Our databases are hosted by the company OVH, which is based in France (https://www.soyoustart.com/fr/)
In addition to the personal data mentioned above, the Website automatically records connection information provided by the browser used by the visitor to access the Website (Internet Explorer, etc.). This information includes data concerning the visitor’s IP address, the pages of the website consulted from this address and the last website visited by the visitor before this one. As the European courts consider IP addresses as personal information, we inform you that none of this browsing data is used by the Publisher to directly or indirectly identify the visitor who consults the Website. Browsing data is used on an anonymous basis to identify potential web server problems, to manage the website, and to gather broad demographic information to make the Website more useful and attractive to our visitors. Data is only retained for the time the Website is visited.
A cookie is a small data file that websites place on visitors’ hard drives when they visit a site. A cookie file contains information that can be used to recognise visitors each time they return to a website. The data is encrypted for added security.
We use “cookies” to measure the level of Website activity and traffic, to collect information to continually improve the user experience on the Website, and to support certain functionalities. For example, we may use these technologies to collect information about how visitors use the Website – the pages they visit, the links they use and how long they stay on each page.
Generally speaking, the information we collect using these cookies does not directly identify you. If you do not wish to receive cookies, you can set your browser to reject cookies or to warn you when cookies are placed on your computer. You can also delete our cookies as soon as you leave the Website.
How do we use the data we collect?
We use personal information that we collect through our Website to:
• improve the content, functionalities and user-friendliness of our Website;
• to answer any questions you may submit using the contact form.
Furthermore, it should be noted that personal data as well as browsing data collected on the Website may be used, if necessary, by the Publisher’s security personnel in order to protect us against a threat or any other security risk, and such data may be shared, if necessary, with the competent authorities.
With whom do we share the collected data?
We provide personal information to our internal departments responsible for responding to your requests and, where appropriate, to companies and organisations that provide services on our behalf, such as companies that provide support services to us (e.g. data storage, web hosting or Website maintenance services). These third party companies are contractually bound to use the personal data we provide to them for the sole purpose of providing services on our behalf and they are contractually obligated to take reasonable steps to ensure your personal data remains confidential and secure.
In addition, we may disclose your personal data if we believe in good faith that such disclosure is appropriate to comply with the law, a court order or a subpoena. We may also disclose your personal data in order to prevent a potential crime or investigate a suspected crime, such as fraud or identity theft; to enforce or apply our online terms and conditions or other agreements; or to protect our own rights or property, or the rights, property, or safety of our users or third parties.
