Sharing data

Evolis may be required to provide public authorities with certain data when asked to, or may be required to do so as part of its legal and regulatory obligations. In such cases, only data that is precisely requested is sent.
Evolis may send your personal data to its commercial partners, technical service providers or group subsidiaries, whose involvement is strictly required for fulfilling one of the aforementioned purposes. Evolis ensures that these third parties process your data so as to ensure its integrity, confidentiality and security.
Your data shall not be transferred for purposes other than those stipulated in this policy, except with your express authorization, which you can later withdraw at any time.

International data transfers

Evolis may transfer your data internationally. In such scenarios, we shall ensure that these transfers are performed with the greatest respect for your rights.
Data transfers outside the EU would therefore only take place if the following strict conditions were respected:
•    If the European Commission decides that there is sufficient harmony, recognizing in the other country a level of protection of personal data equivalent to that stipulated by EU legislation.
•    If the level of protection has not been recognized as equivalent by the European Commission, we shall either use special dispensation applicable to the situation (explicit consent, required for performance of a contract, etc.) or introduce one of the appropriate guarantees for ensuring protection of your personal data (classic contractual clauses approved by the European Commission, restrictive business rules).

Data retention

Evolis undertakes to store your collected data in a form that helps us identify you for a duration that shall not last longer than is required for the purposes for which this data is collected and processed.
This data can also be stored with the aim of respecting a legal obligation or showing proof of a right or contract.

Data security

Evolis applies appropriate technical and organizational techniques regarding the nature of data and the risks that processing of it can carry, so that the security and confidentiality of your personal data can be preserved, and notably so it can be prevented from being distorted, damaged or viewed by unauthorized third parties.
These measures may include practices such as limited access to data among staff members of departments authorized to gain access to it due to their work purposes, contractual guarantees in the event of resorting to an external service provider, impact studies on privacy, regular examinations of our practices and policies of respect for people’s privacy and/or security measures that are material or computerized (secured access, authentication procedure, back-up copies, antivirus software, firewalls, etc.)
