At Cosmosoft, we understand that protecting the privacy of visitors to our websites is very important and that information concerning your health is particularly sensitive. This is why we have taken the necessary steps to satisfy the conditions relating to the protection of your personal data.
Cosmosoft, engaged in a continuous process of personal data protection, complies with all French and European Regulations and laws relating to the protection of this personal data. To this end, we comply with the requirements of the “Loi Informatique et Libertés” of the 6th of January 1978 (hereinafter the “Law”) and the EU Regulations on the protection of individuals with regard to personal data and its free circulation of the 27th of April 2016 (hereinafter the “Regulations”).
This charter describes and informs, for the purpose of transparency on the processes implemented, the way in which Cosmosoft, in the capacity of processing agent, undertakes to collect, use and protect your personal data with the utmost care required and exclusively for the legitimate purposes for which they were collected.
Cosmosoft generally collects personal data about you that you agree to provide directly.
Prior to the collection of your data, Cosmosoft undertakes to obtain your consent and/or to allow you to oppose the use of your data for certain purposes.
You are always informed of the purposes of your data via the different collection forms displayed throughout your navigation (cookies, registration form…).
In the event that some of your data is not collected directly from you, Cosmosoft undertakes to inform you in the form and within the time period provided by the Regulations.
Most services on our sites do not require any form of registration, which allows you as a user to visit them without having to login.
However, some services may require the communication of some of your personal data. In this case, if you do not wish to communicate them, you shall only have limited access to certain website content.
The purposes of each process established on our sites are described and defined at the time of their collection. These include:
• Contacting us by form to answer your questions;
• Elaborating statistics relating to the visiting habits of our site in order to allow us to improve it and to offer you an optimal browsing experience;
• Management of registrations to our newsletters and emails;
• Feedback on our blog;
• Viewing demonstrations of our devices;
• Being contacted by a sales representative;
• Allowing our sales teams to enhance the Cosmosoft database.
A description of the processing purposes implemented shall be provided to you when you submit personal data so that you may understand clearly why we are using it.
Cosmosoft commits to treat your personal data strictly in accordance with these purposes. These have been brought to the attention of our Personal Data Protection Officer who has entered them in their process register.
In no case shall Cosmosoft use your personal data for any other purpose.
We collect, use and share the data in our possession, following the guidelines described below:
• By respecting your consent which you can revoke at any time;
• To the extent necessary to fulfil our legal obligations;
• To the extent necessary when there is a contract between you and Cosmosoft;
• To the extent necessary for our legitimate interests, except where these interests are superseded by your interests or your rights and freedom under the Law and the Regulations.
Cosmosoft only collects the personal data necessary to achieve the purposes of the processes implemented. Cosmosoft undertakes not to collect more data than what is necessary.
If you do not complete the corresponding fields, you shall not be able to use the services offered (examples: newsletter subscription, website registration, publication of comments, downloading our standard resources i.e. White Papers, press reviews, features and benefits of our devices, device comparison etc…).
The mandatory or optional nature of the personal data requested and the possible consequences of a failure to reply shall be specified with an asterisk at the time of their collection.
Under no circumstances shall Cosmosoft transmit your personal data to third parties for other purposes such as commercial and/or promotional use without your consent.
Cosmosoft reserves the right to transmit personal data to sub-contractors (service providers), in full compliance with the Law and Regulations and, exclusively, to achieve the purposes described.
Cosmosoft also uses the services provided by various specialised companies (mailing, audience analysis) and reserves the right to transmit personal data as a service provider, in full compliance with the Law and Regulations and, exclusively, in order to achieve the purposes described.
The list of providers can be communicated to the persons concerned upon request via firstname.lastname@example.org. If these companies use servers outside of the European Union, we have concluded with them specific contracts and standard contractual clauses established by the European Commission to supervise and secure the transfer of your data to these providers which you can ask for the disposal thereof.
Your personal data is only kept for the time required for the purposes intended, in accordance with legal requirements.
Once this time has passed, your data shall be deleted or archived in accordance with the applicable legal rules.
Cosmosoft protects your personal data by implementing all technical and organisational measures in order to ensure the security of the processing of personal data and the confidentiality thereof.
To this end, Cosmosoft takes all the necessary precautions, considering the nature of the data and the risks presented by the processing, in order to preserve the security of the data and, in particular, to prevent them being distorted, damaged, or accessible by third parties (physical protection of premises, authentication processes with personal and secured access via confidential identifiers and passwords, logging of connections, encryption of certain data…).
However, we remind you that you are responsible for the data that you transmit to Cosmosoft and that, as such, you contribute to the protection of your personal data by adhering to good practices in the use of your computer tools.
You are informed that without adequate security measures (examples: secure configuration of your web browser, up-to-date anti-virus programs, firewall software, avoiding the use of software from dubious sources etc…), you run the risk of disclosing your personal data and passwords to unauthorised third parties.
In accordance with the Regulations and the Law, you have the right to:
• View and access, update, complete and amend your data;
• Erase and delete your data when it is inaccurate, incomplete, equivocal;
• Withdraw your consent to the collection of your personal data at any time;
• Limit the processing of your personal data;
• Oppose the processing of your personal data;
• The portability and transfer of your personal data when this data is subject to automated processing based on your consent;
• Define the fate of your data after your death and choose the third party to whom Cosmosoft must or must not communicate them.
In the event of death and as soon as it has been brought to the attention of Cosmosoft, Cosmosoft commits to transmit them as soon as possible to the designated third party or, failing that, to destroy them. However, Cosmosoft may keep a copy of your personal data where necessary for preliminary purposes or to fulfil a legal obligation.
