Personal data protection
We limit our collection of personal data to the personal data we require for legitimate purposes only. The EU Regulation 2016/679 of 27 of april 2016 called GDPR provides you with various rights to guarantee the fair and correct processing of personal data. Where we process personal information for marketing purposes or with your consent, we process the data until you ask us to stop and for a short period after this (to allow us to implement your requests). We also keep a record of the fact that you have asked us to send or not to you direct marketing or to keep and process your data so that we can respect your request in the future.
We take appropriate security measures to protect your personal data and we demand the same of parties that process personal data on our behalf. We do not guarantee the security of our servers and that the information you supply through the Website will not be intercepted while being transmitted over the Internet. We follow generally accepted industry technical standards to protect the personal data submitted to us. When you enter sensitive information on our registration or order forms, we encrypt that information using secured socket layer technology.
Personal data retention
We do not store personal data for longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data is processed. The data will then be deleted, unless a legal retention obligation is in place. The tax legislation requires us to retain a financial administration of 6 years.
Personal data sharing
We have agreements with third parties that may receive your personal data, as they need it to carry out our activities when necessary. These parties are GDPR-compliant and we make sure that they keep your daya confidential and that they may only be processed for the purpose defined by us. These parties are our hosting partners and our legal partner.
