It may occur that the information that the Company collects is passed on to sub-contractors or partners. They are forbidden from using such data for any other purpose than that covered by the service they provide to the Company or within any other scope than a partnership with the Company or the Company’s partners.

We may, for example, call upon sub-contractors to host our databases, process your data or to send you information that you have requested.

The Company reserves the right to share your data in order to meet requests for information duly authorised by the government or legal authorities or in cases stipulated by the law.

Apart from the fact that some of your data may be made public on the Site or the site of a partner (and therefore accessible from anywhere via the internet) your data shall not be transferred outside the European Union.


In compliance with the law, at all times you have the right to access, correct or delete your data from the Site. At any moment, you may request that the Company deletes all or part of your personal data kept by the Company. In order to do this, you can contact us using the details mentioned in the first section of this document (“1.1 Data controller”).

In any case, you have the right to object, by request and free of charge, to the processing of your personal data for marketing purposes.


We work with various tools and services to process, use or share your data. The table below details the information established by each tool / service with regard to protection of your data.

The Company reserves the right to modify this list.


The Company implements all the technical, physical, legal, contractual and organisational measures required to fulfil its legal obligations in terms of privacy and data protection.

For instance, the Company uses hosting services equipped with security precautions that ensure protection of your data in keeping with sector-wide enforced standards. Your data is stored in databases secured by firewalls and intrusion detection software. However, it should be borne in mind that no transfer via the internet can be one hundred per cent secure.

If you have reason to believe that your use of the Site is no longer secure (for example, if you have the impression that the security of your data has been compromised), we invite you to contact us immediately using the details mentioned in the section “1. Data controllers”.
