This Privacy Policy provides information on how your data is collected, processed and used and your rights when it comes to protecting such data.

Before using the Site, please read this Privacy Policy carefully. If you do not wish for us to collect your data under the terms of this Privacy Policy, we inform you that we will be unable to meet some of your requests. We reserve the right to modify this Privacy Policy at any time. We will notify you of any changes before they come into effect by alerting you upon connection to the Site. We therefore encourage you to periodically review this Privacy Policy to ensure that you are aware of any changes made and how your data may be used.


    For the purposes of this Privacy Policy, the term “personal data” refers to information that identifies you directly or indirectly as a natural person, and which may be used to contact you online or offline. This information includes civil status data, including your surname, first name, postal address, e-mail address, telephone number (“Personal Information”) and, if applicable, your date of birth, age, sex and data about your habits or preferences, where such data is associated with your personally identifiable information (collectively referred to as “Personal Data”).

    Personal Data is collected only with your consent (i.e., only if you provide it to us directly through one of the online forms on the Site, or through any cookies to which you have consented), if you wish to access the many features and services that our Site offers or may offer in the following forms:

    Subscription to a newsletter or creation of an account;

    Event organisation (online invitation/registration form):
    Participation in a lottery or contest;
    Feedback, questions or comments, particularly via our contact form;
    Any other request requiring the transmission of Personal Data.
    The nature and amount of data collected depend on the purpose of the features listed above and are therefore variable. For certain activities or services, you may be asked to generate a username and/or password, and/or to provide other information: (i) your age or date of birth, (ii) your gender, (iii) your frequency of use, (iv) information about your home, your lifestyle, your interests.

    Subject to applicable legal requirements, we may use multiple technologies that collect and provide information about how you view and use our Site, as well as demographic information about users of our Site that we may obtain from third parties such as Google or the social networks you use (“Usage Data”). Usage Data includes the pages you have viewed, the time you have spent viewing them, the products associated with the information or other content you have viewed, the display language, the demographic information about you (your age, gender and interests, if any) and the pages you visited before arriving on the current page, so that we can get a clearer idea of how our users interact, and thus adapt and improve our services accordingly. In general, most of the Usage Data we collect cannot be associated with you personally. However, if we are able to associate them with you, we will treat them as your Personal Data in accordance with this Privacy Policy.


    All the collected data is used for the purposes for which you transmitted it to us and identified as such at the time of collection, namely:

    Creating your account and managing your identification and authentication;
    Providing you with the services you have requested from us;
    Replying to your requests or comments;
    Facilitating your use of our Site and personalising your experience of our site based on your interests and needs;
    Obtaining (anonymous) statistics on site activity, in particular to measure the satisfaction and quality of services and thus help improve and optimise the site;
    Contacting you about services that may be of interest to you for the purpose of promotional communication, provided that you have given your prior consent;

    Managing the Site’s security;
    Transferring data to the Foundation’s partners, provided that you have given your prior consent.
    In addition to the purposes for which you have provided your Personal Data, you may also have the option (via a checkbox or other method) to authorise the use of your data for an activity or service which differs from the primary activity or service you are requesting. For example, if you sign up for a contest, you may also be invited to subscribe to receive newsletters or offers from other Fondation partner websites. If you decide to take advantage of these additional services, we will use your data to provide them.

    We may also use your email address to send you administrative communications (for example, a confirmation email when you subscribe, or cancel the subscription, to a specific activity/service), as well as certain service announcements (for example, notifications regarding updates to our Privacy Policy, dropping certain Site features or programs, changes to our support policies or online services, or other related changes), or any communication regarding our activities (after obtaining your consent where required by law).

    We may also use your personal and/or demographic Data as part of our internal research, in order to constantly improve and personalise the services we provide to you, and to better meet your needs.

    The data shall be kept for the period necessary for the purposes for which it was collected and shall, in any event, be destroyed at the end of this period in accordance with the provisions of Article 5.
