Protecting your personal data

Each online service limits data collection to what is strictly necessary (data minimisation).

Purpose of the personal data collection process

The purposes for which we use your personal data are outlined below. We are required by law to establish a "legal basis for processing", i.e. to inform you of the basis on which we are authorised to use your data. The legal basis for each purpose is either obtaining your consent for the use of your personal data, the need to use your personal data to execute a contract involving you, a legal obligation or if the use of your personal data is necessary for our legitimate interests (in which case, we will explain to you what those interests are).

Purposes of the processing operation

Our legal basis

  • Communicate with you about your order for a service or product.
  • Contractual necessity: we use your personal data to meet our contractual obligations (e.g. to deliver a product you have ordered).
  • Notify you of changes to our services or to communicate with you. For example, we may use your contact information to respond to any request you send us.
  • Legitimate interest: we use your personal data to keep you informed of new services and to respond to your requests.
  • Send you product information.
  • Legitimate interest and consent: we use your personal information to send you this information. In some cases (such as when we are required by law) we also ask for your consent before sending you this information.
  • Investigate a request to exercise your rights over your personal data.
  • Legal obligation: we use your personal data to process your request to exercise your rights.
  • To prepare legal documents, such as invoices, credit notes and declarations following your purchases.
  • Legal obligation: we use your personal data to investigate a complaint. In some cases, we may be legally required to disclose your personal information (for example in connection with legal proceedings).
  • To register your response to a job offer or spontaneous application.
  • Legal obligation: we use your personal data to analyse your application profile for possible employment with our group and to contact you again.

Our websites and applications are not intended for minors and we do not knowingly collect data about them.


Personal data retention period

We are required by law to retain your personal data only for as long as necessary for the purpose for which it is collected. The length of time your personal data is retained will be determined by several criteria, including the reasons why we use the data, the amount and sensitivity of the information, the potential risk of fraudulent use or disclosure of the information, and our legal and regulatory obligations.


Sharing of personal data

We may disclose your personal data to third parties, in the following cases in particular:

  •  We use third parties to carry out activities on our behalf that involve the processing of personal data. For example, we may use service providers to fulfil orders, deliver packages, SMS and emails, analyse data to help us develop, provide and improve our services, and make payments. These third parties have access to the personal data necessary for the performance of their tasks, but may not use this data for any other purpose.
  •  We may disclose personal data to third parties if we are required to disclose or share your personal data in order to comply with a legal obligation (including in connection with a court order), or to execute or enforce any agreement we have with you or as applicable to you (including agreements between us or with one or more of our subsidiaries), or to protect our rights, property or safety or that of our customers, employees or other third parties.
  • We may share anonymous or aggregated data (such as aggregate statistics or other anonymous data) with third parties.


Links to external sites

Please note that the websites and applications of third parties linked to on our websites are not under our control. In this case, we decline all responsibility for any problem arising in connection with the use of your data by third parties (including your personal information).

  •  You may request that your personal data be provided (or downloaded) in order to transmit it to a third party.
  • To object to any automated individual decision or profiling.
  • To define the directives concerning what happens to your data after your death. If no such directives are defined, your heirs may exercise their rights for your personal data.

Personal data protection

Your personal data is neither sold nor leased to third parties.
We undertake to keep personal data confidential and not to disclose it in any form whatsoever, except for the purposes of fulfilling orders and the processing purposes described above, in accordance with a legal or regulatory provision, to respond to requests for communications from judicial and/or administrative authorities, to assert our rights or those of our partners and third parties with your prior consent or request.

We use services provided by specialist companies, including our subcontractors; you can obtain the list of these companies by contacting our DPO. When these companies use servers outside the EU, we have taken care to sign personal data protection contracts with them and, in particular, the European Commission's standard clauses to govern the transfer of personal data. This is the case, for example, with Sarbacane software, which we use for marketing operations.

In all cases, we ensure that the persons authorised to process your personal data (staff, partners, subcontractors, etc.) undertake to respect the confidentiality of personal data or are subject to an appropriate legal confidentiality obligation.

Transmission of data via the Internet is not completely secure. This is a common risk on the Internet and is not specific to our services. We are unable to guarantee the security of your data (including your personal information) transmitted to our services. Any transmission is at your own risk.
It is important to protect yourself against unauthorised access to your password and computer hardware. Be sure to log out and close your browser when you have finished your session. This will help prevent third parties from accessing your personal information if you share your computer hardware or use a device in a public space such as a library or Internet café.
