As part of its ongoing commitment to the protection of personal data, Cosmosoft complies with all French and European regulatory and legislative provisions on data protection. As such, we comply with the requirements of the French Data Protection Law of 6 January 1978, revised (hereinafter the “Law”) and the EU Regulation on the protection of natural persons with regard to personal data and the free movement of such, dated 27 April 2016 (hereinafter, the “Regulation”).
For the purposes of ensuring transparency with regard to data processing, this policy describes and advises how Cosmosoft, as Data Controller, undertakes to collect, use and protect your personal data with all due care, and exclusively for the legitimate purposes for which the information was collected.
Cosmosoft generally collects your personal data that you agree to provide to it directly.
Cosmosoft undertakes to obtain your consent before collecting your data and/or to allow you to object to the use of your data for certain purposes.
In any case, you are informed of the purposes via the various data collection forms presented as you browse the website (cookies, registration form, etc.).
If any of your data is collected not directly from you, Cosmosoft undertakes to inform you of this via the means and by the deadline provided for by the Regulation.
Most of the services provided on our websites do not require any kind of registration, allowing you, as a user, to visit the websites without needing to identify yourself.
However, certain services may require the communication of some personal information. In this case, if you do not wish to communicate this information, you will have only limited access to certain content of the Website.
The purposes of the personal data processing operations used on our websites are described and defined at the point of data collection. These purposes include:
A description of the purposes of processing operations will be provided when you submit personal data so that you clearly understand why we are using them.
Cosmosoft undertakes only to use your personal data strictly for these purposes. The Data Protection Officer (DPO) will have been made aware of these purposes and recorded them in their register of processing operations.
Under no circumstances will Cosmosoft use your personal data for other purposes.
We collect, use and share the data in our possession in accordance with the rules below:
As necessary for our lawful interests, unless these interests are superseded by your interests or rights and freedoms under the Law and the Regulation.
The personal details collected by Cosmosoft are solely the details needed to achieve the purposes of the processing operations. Cosmosoft undertakes not to collect more data than necessary.
If you do not complete the corresponding fields, you cannot use the services offered (e.g.: subscribe to newsletters, register with the websites, publish comments, download resources such as white papers, press reviews, features and benefits of our devices, compare technologies, etc.).
The mandatory or optional nature of the personal information requested and consequences of not submitting a response are specified at the point of collection by an asterisk.
Under no circumstances will Cosmosoft transmit your personal data to third parties for purposes other than sales and/or promotional purposes without your consent.
Cosmosoft reserves the right to transmit personal data to subcontractors (service providers), in full compliance with the Law and the Regulation and exclusively to achieve the purposes described.
Cosmosoft also uses the services provided by various specialist companies (mailshots, audience analysis) and reserves the right to transmit personal data as a service provider, in full compliance with the Law and the Regulation and exclusively to achieve the purposes described.
The list of service providers can be sent to anyone concerned upon request to email@example.com. If these companies use servers outside the European Union, we have entered into specific contracts with them and agreed standard contractual clauses drafted by the European Commission to regulate and secure the transfer of your data to these service providers, which you may request to have available.
Your personal data are only kept for as long as is required for the purposes in question, in accordance with legal requirements.
Once this time has passed, your data will be deleted or archived in accordance with the applicable legal rules.
Cosmosoft protects your personal data by implementing every technical and organisational measure required to ensure the security of personal data processing operations and the confidentiality of personal data.
As such, Cosmosoft takes every precaution, in view of the nature of the data and the risks presented by the processing operation, to protect the security of the data and, in particular, to prevent the data from being distorted, damaged or accessed by unauthorised third parties (physical protection of premises, authentication procedures with personal secure access using confidential user names and passwords, connection logging, the encryption of certain information, etc.).
We remind you, however, that you are responsible for the personal data that you transmit to Cosmosoft and that, as such, you contribute to the protection of your personal data by complying with good practice in the use of your IT tools.
You are advised that, without adequate security measures (e.g. secure configuration of your web browser, updated antivirus software, firewalls, avoiding the use of software from suspicious sources, etc.), you run the risk that the data and passwords you use to protect your data may be disclosed to unauthorised third parties.
In accordance with the Regulation and the Law, you have:
In the event of death and as soon as Cosmosoft has been made aware of such, Cosmosoft undertakes to transfer the data immediately to the designated third party, or otherwise to destroy them.
