Personal Data Management Policy
Laboratoires Vitalaë intends to make the control of your data and the respect of your privacy a fundamental priority as part of our cooperative values of trust and transparency.
Therefore, Laboratoires Vitalaë, intends to rigorously respect the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) which came into force on May 25, 2018, as well as the Data Protection Act of January 6, 1978, amended accordingly.
The GDPR is the European framework concerning the processing and circulation of personal data, the information on which companies rely on to offer services and products. This text covers all persons residing in the European Union.
This regulation is based on two main objectives: on the one hand, to reinforce the rights of people whose data is processed, and on the other, to reinforce the obligations of the structures that process such data.
On this occasion, we inform you of the rigorous steps taken by Laboratoires Vitalaë to comply with this regulation.
1. Purpose of this Policy
This Personal Data Management Policy describes the conditions under which we undertake to comply with all French and European regulations and legislation concerning the protection of such data.
This document may be modified at any time in order to comply with any regulatory, legal, editorial or technical developments. The user must refer to the latest version of the declaration before any navigation on the site. The user’s Personal Data will always be treated in accordance with the policy in force at the time of collection, unless a legal and imperative requirement stipulates otherwise.
We undertake to comply with Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of 27 April 2016 on the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of Personal Data and on the free movement of such data (GDPR), the French Data Protection Act (Lois Informatique et Libertés) No. 78-17 of 6 January 1978 as amended, as well as the French Act on Confidence in the Digital Economy (Loi pour la Confiance dans économie Numérique) No. 2004-575 of 21 June 2004 (Article L. 33-4-1 of the French Post and Telecommunications Code and Article L. 121-20-5 of the French Consumer Code).
2. What is personal data?
Any information that allows a natural person to be identified directly or indirectly: name, postal or e-mail address, telephone number, loyalty account number, IP address are examples of personal data.
3. Who is responsible for processing it?
Laboratoires Vitalaë collects and processes Personal Data on its own behalf and as processing controller, in accordance with the provisions of Regulation (EU) 2016/679.
4. Who has access to your Personal Data?
The Personal Data collected is intended for Laboratoires Vitalaë, responsible for processing it as a controller and for outside service providers such as for example, a communication agency, which would receive and process data as a controller in the context of its own temporary mission.
Only those persons involved in the processing of data for a specific purpose (a goal), of which you are informed on a case-by-case basis, will have access to your data and solely for that purpose.
Personal Data may be processed by subcontractors (service providers), in full compliance with the above principle, exclusively to achieve the purposes covered by this policy.
The User’s Personal Information is intended for the use of the service. User Personal Information will not be shared with commercial or advertising entities.
In addition, we may exchange data between the different subsidiaries of SILL ENTREPRISES, of which Laboratoires Vitalaë is a part, in accordance with the legitimate interest that leads us to optimize the distribution of the different tasks within the group. SILL ENTREPRISES will not use your personal data for purposes other than those indicated in this policy without informing you and obtaining your consent. In any case, you have the right to object to such an exchange by justifying particular circumstances.
If we sell or divide all or part of our business, transfer assets, or otherwise participate in a change of control transaction, or in the unlikely event of bankruptcy, we may transfer Personal Data covered by this policy to one or more third parties as part of the transaction.
In addition, we will access, transfer, disclose and retain Personal Data when we believe in good faith that it is necessary to:
– Comply with applicable law or comply with a valid legal process, including from judicial or other governmental authorities.
– Protect our users, for example to prevent unsolicited email or fraud attempts.
– To operate and maintain the security of our products and services, including to prevent or stop an attack on computer systems or our networks; or
– To protect our rights or property, including the enforcement of terms governing the use of products or services.
Within these limits, all information collected is kept confidential and as far as necessary anonymous. Only information that is exclusively necessary is passed on to the relevant party.
As the case may be, we process your Personal Data, either directly obtained from you or resulting from the use of products or services. We may also be the recipient of data that has been collected from you by a third party.
In the event of a proven violation of legal or regulatory provisions, this Personal Data may be communicated to the judicial authorities upon justified request.
Within the limits of their respective attributions and for the purposes mentioned above, the people most likely to have access to the data of our Customers are mainly the personnel of our customer service (Sales and marketing, Sales administration, technical).
We also use the services provided by several specialized companies (mailing, audience analysis), a list of which can be communicated to the parties concerned on request at the contact below.
