Avisa Partners will not sell the User’s personal data.

Avisa Partners will only share your personal data:
– in response to legal or administrative procedures of any kind or to law enforcement measures as requested by the relevant authorities,
– or with our service providers, for example to store them on third-party hosting services or to provide our technical assistance, etc.
– or with our service providers such as lawyers or accountants within the scope of their assignment, strictly limited to the information needed to carry it out,

– or, should Avisa Partners take part in a merger, acquisition, or other transfer of assets, given that Avisa Partners undertakes to obtain your consent prior to sharing your personal data, to maintain the level of privacy that applies to it, and to ensure that any acquirer does the same.

We require that all these third parties apply, as a minimum, the security rules laid out by the French data protection authority CNIL, whether in their administrative, technical and organisational aspects, in order to protect your shared data against any illegal disclosure, use, modification and destruction.

In particular, we have taken great care to select our subcontractors according to the level of security of hosting that they offer.

We work with service providers who act on our behalf and may need to access some of your personal data to provide us with the assistance or technical infrastructure required to provide our services.

Therefore, your data may be shared with the following subcontractors:
– Gandi, which hosts our website, on servers located within the European Union,
In certain cases, efficient processing by our subcontractors may require processing that takes place outside of the European Union. In such cases, we have included appropriate ad-hoc contractual clauses recognised by the European Commission to protect your data at least as well as they would be if they were processed in France.

Furthermore, if you decide to use your social network accounts to share content or sign into our website, this connection may result in certain data being sent to the servers used by these services, especially in the United States. To find out more, read on.

4 – What about social media?

To provide you with the most complete services, we allow you to share pages easily on your favourite social networks. By using the buttons to access social networks, certain data may be collected and shared between our website and social networks.

Our site uses plug-ins or social modules on its various pages, such as “share” buttons for third-party social networks like Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. When you visit a page on our website that contains one of these modules, a connection is made automatically with the servers of the social network, such as Facebook or Twitter, who may then be informed that you have accessed the corresponding page on our website. If you wish to limit the information that these social networks know or publish about your actions on our website, we recommend that you sign out of your social networks before visiting our website.

To protect your privacy, we have nevertheless limited the information that is automatically sent in this way.

• We only collect the fact that you were signed into the social network in question,
• The social network in question collects the information provided in their own personal data protection policy; we recommend that you read it and take any desired action in the settings on each social network.

Avisa Partners is not responsible for any use that these social networks might make of your data for their own purposes.

To conclude on this issue, please note that the data sent to social networks under the aforementioned conditions may be sent and processed by these companies on servers located in multiple countries around the world, including the United States, in accordance with their own privacy policies, which we encourage you to read.

5 – How long do we keep your data?

Your data is kept for as long as needed to fulfil the purposes described above, in accordance with the current legislation in force.

In regard to sales prospection data, should you not have signed up to the services offered on our site, we only keep personal data in our active database for the time needed to follow up on our business relationship with you, i.e., three years after our last contact.

If you have opened an account on our website, we keep the personal data regarding the terms and conditions that bind us in our active database for the time needed to follow up on our business relationship with you, then in an intermediate database for five years after the end of the contract. Please note that, regardless of these durations, if you have not signed into the website for a period of three years, you will receive an email inviting you to sign in as soon as possible to avoid your account access being disabled, in accordance with our terms and conditions.

Furthermore, the data that establishes proof of a right or contract must be kept to fulfil a legal obligation and will be kept for the duration provided by the law in force in an intermediate archive.

Connection data, such as your IP address, connection date and time and pages visited, will be kept for a duration of up to 12 months.

At the end of this time, it will be archived, anonymised or deleted.

To this end, data flushing mechanisms have been set up to effectively delete data once the archival or storage durations necessary for fulfilling the required or desired purposes have expired.

6 – Where do we keep your data?

As a general rule, your data is stored in the European Union.

Should a personal data feed be shared with an entity located outside the European Union or in a country that does not have an adequate level of protection within the meaning of the General Data Protection Regulation on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, these data transfers will be carried out based on the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission and/or any other legal basis that complies with the legislation that applies to personal data, constituting “appropriate safeguards” within the meaning of the GDPR.

As regards our subcontractors in particular, transfers to the United States are governed by the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses.

7 – How is your data protected?

Our data hosting service stores your information on secure servers. Our website has an SSL certificate enabling the “https” protocol that secures the connection between the web server and the browser. We use adequate security measures to ensure that supporting documents have optimal protection.

We always do our utmost to protect your personal data. From the moment your data is received and throughout its lifecycle, we apply strict security measures and procedures to guarantee data availability and integrity and to prevent any unauthorised access.

Should we become aware of an incident that seriously impacts the integrity or privacy of the User’s Data despite our best data protection efforts, we will inform you as soon as possible and will indicate the corrective measures we have taken.
