We process the personal data of the following persons:

We will only use such data if it is necessary for the performance of our duties.
Subject to the above, we will normally collect personal data directly.

- Cookies: for more information, including how long they are kept, you can see the Cookie Management Notice below;
The provision of this data is not mandatory and can be modulated via the user's browser settings in addition to the features provided on the Sites, but it may affect your experience of visiting the Sites.
- Content and metadata: These elements correspond to the operations carried out on the Sites, i.e. the data flow generated by your activity. In principle, this data is not used by us. The Sites are only a medium for the exchange of this data. However, some of this data may be used to enable us to better understand how you interact with the Sites and to improve the operation of the Sites.
This data is processed on the basis of our legitimate interests, namely to ensure optimal use of the Sites and to personalise the Sites for each user (for example, by adapting the language in which the Sites are displayed or by offering the Sites in a mobile version of the connection comes from a mobile phone).
The provision of this data is not always compulsory and can be modulated via the settings of your web browser in addition to the functionalities implemented on the Sites, but it may have an impact on the experience of visiting the Sites.
HOW DO WE PROTECT PERSONAL DATA?
You are responsible for ensuring that any personal data you provide to us is secure.
For our part, we implement appropriate security measures throughout the life cycle of personal data to protect against unauthorised access, falsification, disclosure or destruction of personal data and, where possible, we anonymise or pseudonymise personal data.
SHARING OF PERSONAL DATA
We are the sole recipient of personal data, which may only be shared with our subcontractors' service providers, to enable them to provide their services relating to the maintenance and operation of the Sites, to the exclusion of any other purpose. We have entered into a contract with each of these service providers to specify how they may access and process personal data. The service providers are subject to a confidentiality undertaking and implement personal data security measures at least equivalent to ours.
We do not transfer personal data to any third country or international organisation, with the exception of transfers made in the context of the "Google Analytics" solution. This is essentially technical data related to your navigation on the Sites. We always check for an adequate decision. Where this is not the case (or no longer the case, such as in the United States), we put in place appropriate safeguards, namely the signing of standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission, and make every effort to ensure that you have enforceable rights and effective legal remedies. A copy of these appropriate safeguards can be made available to you by emailing us at: email@example.com.
For more information, we refer you to the Cookie Management Notice below.
Please note that publications on the Sites may be accessible from outside the European Union due to their presence on the Internet.
- With respect to the newsletter: we retain your email address until you unsubscribe from the newsletter (via the unsubscribe link in the newsletters).
- As a Visitor:
- your login data and technical information, which is retained for a period of six (6) months from the time it is generated; and
- your data from the implementation of backups that allow us to ensure the availability of data and their access within an appropriate timeframe in the event of a physical or technical incident. The data within the backups is kept until it is overwritten by a new backup. This is "out of order" data that is only used for backup purposes. In the event of a request for deletion of personal data, the personal data contained in these backups will be deleted to the extent that this is technically possible.
We undertake to delete or anonymise your personal data at the end of the retention period described above, plus a period of a few days or weeks, in proportion to the above-mentioned period, if this is necessary to ensure the deletion or anonymisation of the data concerned in practice unless there is an imperative reason for doing so (e.g. in the context of a legal dispute).
Each person whose personal data we process has the right, within the limits of the applicable legislation on the protection of personal data, to access, modify, limit and object to the processing of his or her personal data, a right to erasure and a right to portability of his or her personal data by contacting us. Each data subject also has the right to lodge a complaint with the Luxembourg supervisory authority, namely the National Commission for Data Protection.
We also take care to preserve the intellectual property rights and the right to an image of each data subject. If you believe that there is an error on the Sites in this respect, you can contact us to report it.
