We do not transfer any personal data outside the European Economic Area.

VII – Security of your personal data

The protection of your personal data is important to us. Your personal data is collected, stored, processed and transferred in strict compliance with the purposes for which it was collected and in accordance with the strict rules established by this privacy policy, which complies with all the obligations of the European regulation on personal data.

Groupe Duval has implemented technical and organisational measures to ensure that Personal Data are kept as securely as possible and for as long as necessary to achieve the targeted purposes, in accordance with applicable law.

VIII – Your rights

Subject to the limits established by the laws and regulations in force, you have the following rights with regard to your Personal Data:

  • The right of access – you have the right to obtain from us confirmation that your personal data is or is not being processed by us, as well as certain other information (similar to that provided in this Privacy Policy) about how it is used. You also have the right to access your personal data by requesting a copy of the personal data concerning you. This allows you to know and verify that we are using your information in accordance with data protection laws. We may refuse to provide information when it may reveal personal data about another person or negatively affect another person’s rights.
  • The right of rectification – you can ask us to take steps to correct your personal data if it is inaccurate or incomplete (for example, if we have the wrong name or address).
  • The right to delete – also known as the “right to forget”, this right allows you, in simple terms, to request the erasure or deletion of your personal data when, for example, there is no compelling reason for us to continue using it or its use is illegal. However, this is not a general right to delete and there are some exceptions, for example when we have to use the information to defend a legal action or to comply with a legal obligation.
  • The right to limit processing – you have the right to “block” or prevent the further use of your personal data when we assess a rectification request or as an alternative to deletion. When processing is limited, we can still keep your personal data, but we cannot use it further.
  • The right to data portability – you have the right to obtain and reuse certain personal data held by third parties for your own purposes in different databases (which are separate data controllers). This only applies to personal data that you have provided to us, that we process with your consent and for the purposes of contract performance, which is processed by automated means. In this case, we will provide you with a copy of your data in a structured format, commonly used and readable by a machine or (where technically and financially possible) we may transmit your data directly to another controller.
  • The right to object – you have the right to object to certain types of processing, for reasons related to your particular situation, at any time, insofar as such processing takes place for the legitimate interests pursued by our company. We will be allowed to continue to process personal data if we can demonstrate that the processing is justified by compelling and legitimate reasons that outweigh your interests, rights and freedoms or if we need it to establish, carry out or defend legal proceedings.
  • The right to withdraw your consent – when we process your personal data on the basis of your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time. However, such withdrawal shall not affect the lawfulness of processing operations that preceded such withdrawal.
  • The right to provide us with instructions on the use of your personal data after your death – you have the right to provide us with instructions on the management (e. g. storage, deletion and disclosure) of your data after your death. You can change or revoke your instructions at any time.

IX – How to contact us?

Before evaluating your application, we may ask you for additional information in order to identify you. If you do not provide the requested information and, as a result, we are unable to identify you, we may refuse to respond to your request.

If you are not satisfied with our response to a complaint you have made or if you believe that the processing of your personal data does not comply with data protection laws, you may file a complaint with the competent data protection supervisory authority.
