COLLECTED DATA AND PURPOSES OF DATA COLLECTION

Fidal’s Website implements a system for the collection and processing of personal data that are shared as and when the user accesses it.

The user's personal data which are collected directly (e. g. when connecting to the customer service center, when sending a question via the contact page or when submitting a résumé via the appropriate form) or indirectly (connection data) are used for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes.

They are used by Fidal:

  • for statistical purposes or;
  • to enrich editorial content and adapt it to users’ needs; or
  • to reply to requests and applications for information on the services offered by Fidal. For this purpose, it may be necessary for Fidal to call the user back by telephone or to communicate with the user by e-mail; or
  • for managing registrations for events organized by Fidal or users' subscriptions to blog publications; or
  • for recruitment purposes. If the user submits a CV or an application on-line, Fidal will use this personal data for recruitment purposes, which may involve Fidal contacting the user by email, telephone or post. In some cases, the user may be asked to register on the Fidal website. Unless you request otherwise, Fidal may keep this personal data on file for a certain length of time in order to possibly contact the user in the future for other employment opportunities at Fidal.

These purposes were brought to the attention of Fidal's Data Protection Officer, who entered them into its data processing register.

The communication of personal data in this context is voluntary. If the user chooses not to provide such personal data, they will not be able to benefit from the relevant services offered by Fidal's websites, such as communication, the downloading documents or recruitment opportunities.

Where users provide personal data on the Fidal website, they certify that they have received the necessary authorizations and consents from the persons concerned by such personal data, if the data are about persons other than themselves and, where applicable, for the uses described in these general conditions of use.

As a general rule, Fidal does not collect sensitive personal data through its website. By voluntarily providing Fidal with sensitive personal data without being asked to (for example by submitting a CV or an on-line application), the user expressly consents to the use of his/her personal data as described in these terms and conditions.
