2. What personal data do we collect from you and for what purposes?

In general, you can visit our website without having to identify yourself and provide personal information about yourself. However, DRT may sometimes ask you for information, for example, to respond to a request from you, provide you with a service, process an order, or for marketing purposes.

In some cases, you provide us with personal data directly (for example, when you contact us with a question). In other cases, we collect this data (for example, by using cookies to understand how you use our website) or the data in question is sent to us by third parties, including other entities of the DRT Group.

Personal data is defined as any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (hereinafter referred to as “Person concerned”); an “identifiable natural person” is defined as a natural person who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier, such as e-mail addresses, user names, user-generated content, etc… Personal data may also include unique numerical identifiers, such as the IP address of your computer or the MAC address of your mobile device, as well as cookies.

When we collect data, we indicate the required fields with an asterisk. Failure to fill in the fields marked with an asterisk may impact our ability to provide you with the requested service or manage your requests.

We may process your personal data for the following purposes:

3. Who can access your personal data?

The people who have access to your personal data are authorized employees within the relevant departments of DRT and its affiliates.

Your personal data may also be processed on our behalf by trusted service providers.

We use trusted third parties to carry out a series of transactions on our behalf. We only provide them with the information they need to perform the service and ask them not to use your personal data for any other purpose. We always make every effort to ensure that all these third parties with whom we work maintain the confidentiality and security of your data. For example, we may use the following channels to request services that require the processing of your personal data:

  • Third parties who assist and help us provide IT services, such as platform providers, hosting services, maintenance and technical support services for our databases and for our software and applications that may contain data about you (these services may sometimes require access to your data in order to perform the requested tasks)
  • Service providers who are responsible for carrying out our satisfaction surveys and statistics associated with the use of the website.

We may also share your personal data with third parties:

  • If we are required to disclose or share your personal data to comply with a legal obligation, or to enforce or apply our terms of use/sale or any other conditions you have accepted; or to protect the rights, property or safety of DRT, its customers or employees.
  • If we have your consent.
  • Or if the law allows us to do so.

We do not offer or sell your personal data.

No personal information of the user on the website is published without the user’s knowledge, exchanged, transferred, assigned or sold on any medium whatsoever to third parties. Only the hypothesis of the acquisition of DRT and its rights would allow the transmission of this information to the potential purchaser, who would in turn be bound by the same obligation to store and modify the data with regard to the user of the website.

4. Where do we store your personal data?

The data we collect from you is stored in France by DRT or its trusted service providers.

DRT undertakes not to process, host or transfer information collected about its Customers to a country recognized as “unsuitable” by the European Commission without first informing its customers. However, they may at any time be transferred, accessed from and stored in a country outside the European Economic Area (“EEA”). They may also be processed by a staff member operating outside the EEA who works for us or for one of our service providers.

The data collected through our website is intended for DRT and for subsidiaries that may be located outside the European Union. The latter are contractually bound to respect the confidentiality and security of any data communicated to them and to use them only for the purposes of the mission entrusted to them.

DRT may also use the services of technical and commercial subcontractors on condition that they provide sufficient guarantees with regard to the requirements of the General Data Protection Regulations.

Some countries may not have laws governing the use and transfer of personal data, so we undertake to take all necessary measures to ensure that the third parties concerned comply with the conditions set out in this Policy. These measures may include monitoring the standards applied by these third parties with regard to the protection of personal data and security and/or signing appropriate contracts (on the basis of the model adopted by the Commission of the European Union). For further information, please contact us in accordance with the instructions in the “Contact” section below.

5. How long do we keep your personal data?

We only retain your personal data for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which we hold it, to meet your needs or to fulfil our legal obligations. To determine the retention period of your data, we apply the following criteria:

  • If cookies are placed on your computer, we retain your data only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purpose for which it was collected (e.g., during a session for session identification cookies) and for any period of time defined in accordance with local regulations and instructions;
  • If you contact us in the context of an information request, we keep your personal data for as long as necessary to process your request.
  • The data of website visitors and prospects are kept in current archives (i.e. accessible in a current manner by the relevant DRT services) for 3 years from the last contact of the prospect. Being considered a “contact” is the act of connecting to your customer account, consulting a product sheet, adding a product to the basket, searching for a product on the website, clicking on a link contained in the newsletter or in an email sent by DRT. At the end of this 3-year period, DRT may contact the prospect again to find out whether he/she wishes to continue to receive commercial solicitations.
    In any case, you can at any time withdraw your consent and ask to unsubscribe from the Newsletter by clicking on the link contained in the messages sent to you.
  • Customer account data are kept for as long as strictly necessary for the management of the commercial relationship. Being considered as “end of the commercial relationship”, is the termination of the contract, the fact of deleting the customer account, the fact of closing complaint files opened with the after-sales service, the fact that the customer has not had contact with DRT for more than 5 years.
    Beyond the duration of the commercial relationship with the customer, certain data may be archived in accordance with the provisions in force (in particular, but not exclusively, those provided for by the Commercial Code, the Civil Code and the Consumer Code).

We may store certain personal data in order to fulfil our legal or regulatory obligations, and to enable us to exercise our rights (e. g. to file a complaint with any court) or for statistical or historical purposes.

When we no longer need to use your personal data, we delete them from our systems and files or anonymize them so that they no longer allow us to identify you.

6. How is the security of your personal data ensured?

DRT undertakes to take all necessary precautions to preserve the security of your personal data and in particular that they are not communicated to unauthorized persons.

To ensure the security and confidentiality of personal data, DRT uses networks protected by standard devices, such as firewalls, pseudonymization, encryption and passwords.

When processing personal data, DRT takes all reasonable measures to protect it against any loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.

7. What are your rights as a person concerned?

In accordance with current European regulations, users of the website have the following rights:

– The right to be informed
– The right to access your data
– The right to rectify your data
– The right to delete your data (or “right to forget”)
– The right to withdraw consent at any time for data processing based on consent
– The right to limit the processing of your data
– The right to object to the processing of your data based on legitimate interest
– The right to the portability of your data

Cookie policy

(Translation from the French version (link) for information purposes only. In case of discrepancy between the French and the English text, the French version shall prevail).

Definition of a cookie

A “cookie” is a small information file sent to the user’s browser and stored on the user’s terminal (e.g. computer, smartphone, tablet or other Internet-optimized device), (hereinafter “Cookies”). They are, for the most part, used to run a website, improve their operation and make them more efficient. Indeed, a website can read these files and query them, which allows it to recognize you and record important information that will facilitate your use of the website (for example, your preferences as a user of the website – hereinafter “User”).

This file includes information such as the user’s domain name, the user’s Internet service provider, the user’s operating system, the IP address, the date and time of access and preferences.

Type of cookies used

Strictly necessary cookies

These cookies are essential to the proper functioning of the website and cannot be disabled from our systems. They are usually activated in response to actions you perform that correspond to a request for services, such as configuring your privacy preferences, connecting or completing forms. You can configure your browser to block or be alerted about the use of these cookies. However, if this category of cookies – which does not store any personal data – is blocked, some parts of the website will not be able to function.

Performance cookies

These cookies allow us to determine the number of visits and sources of traffic to our website, in order to measure and improve its performance. They also help us to identify the most / least visited pages and to evaluate how visitors navigate the website. All information collected by these cookies is aggregated and therefore anonymized. If you do not accept this category of cookies, we will not be able to know when you visited our website.

“Social network” cookies

These cookies are enabled by the services offered on the social networks that we have added to our website, in order to give you the opportunity to share our content with your network and friends. They give us the opportunity to track your browsing on other websites and to profile your interests. This may impact the content and messages posted on other websites you visit.

If we do not accept this category of cookies, you may not be able to use, or even view, these sharing tools.

Management of cookie preferences

Cookies facilitate the navigation and/or provision of the services offered by the website; the user may configure his browser so that he can decide whether or not to accept them so that Cookies are stored on the terminal or, on the contrary, that they are rejected, either systematically or according to their issuer. The user may also configure his browser software in such a way that the acceptance or refusal of Cookies is offered to him from time to time, before a Cookie is likely to be recorded on his terminal.

DRT informs the user that, in this case, not all the functionalities of its navigation software may be available.

If the user refuses to accept cookies on his or her device or browser, or if the user deletes cookies registered there, the user is informed that his or her browsing and experience on the website may be limited. This could also be the case when DRT or one of its service providers cannot recognize, for technical compatibility purposes, the type of browser used by the terminal, the language and display settings or the country from which the terminal appears to be connected to the Internet.

Where applicable, DRT declines all responsibility for the consequences linked to the degraded functioning of the website and any services offered by DRT, resulting from the refusal of Cookies by the user or the impossibility for DRT to record or consult the Cookies necessary for their functioning due to the user’s choice. For the management of Cookies and user choices, the configuration of each browser is different. It is described in the browser’s help menu, which will allow you to find out how the user can change his or her cookie preferences.

At any time, the user may choose to express and modify his or her wishes regarding Cookies. DRT may also use the services of external service providers to help it collect and process the information described in this section.

Cookies related to social networks

Lastly, by clicking on the icons dedicated to the social networks Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google Plus on the DRT website or in its mobile application and if the user has accepted the deposit of cookies by continuing his navigation on the website, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn and Google Plus can also deposit cookies on your devices (computer, tablet, mobile phone).

These types of cookies are only placed on your devices with your consent, by continuing to browse the website. However, at any time, the user may withdraw his consent for DRT to deposit this type of cookie.

Internet tags

DRT, acting as controller, may occasionally use Internet tags (also known as “tags”, or action tags, one-pixel GIF, transparent GIF, invisible GIF and one-to-one GIF) and deploy them through a specialist web analytics partner, which may be located (and therefore store the corresponding information, including the user’s IP address in a foreign country) in a foreign country.
These tags are placed both in online advertisements allowing Internet users to access the website, and on the various pages of the website.
This technology allows DRT to evaluate visitors’ responses to the website and the effectiveness of its actions (for example, the number of times a page is opened, and the information consulted), as well as the user’s use of this website.
The external service provider may collect information about visitors to the website and other websites through these tags, compile reports on the activity of the website for DRT, and provide other services relating to the use of the website and the Internet.
