Sia Partners understands that your privacy is important to you.

Preamble

Sia Partners is committed to offering the highest level of security for the services it provides. By ensuring the protection of personal data and by providing simplicity, clarity, and transparency, Sia Partners wishes to treat personal data with respect and exemplarity within the framework of a relationship of trust. Sia Partners' orientations aim to develop its services in an environment that is undergoing accelerated changes both technically and in terms of regulations. Data protection is therefore a priority for Sia Partners. Having integrated the constant evolution of security threats and risks, Sia Partners places security on a daily basis at the heart of its concerns. This policy applies to all Sia Partners offices.

How do we collect your data?

In the course of carrying out its activities, Sia Partners collects and processes some of your personal data. The communication of your data is voluntary and does not constitute a condition of use of the site. This personal data is collected directly from you, or indirectly.

We are vigilant in protecting the privacy of minors. We do not intentionally collect personal data from minors.

We only use personal data if this use is at least based on the legal basis specified below:

  • Compliance with a legal obligation incumbent on Sia Partners;

  • The execution of a contract concluded or pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the person concerned by the processing;
  • The consent is given by the person concerned by the processing.

The processing of personal data as part of our assignments:

We may also process personal data as part of the services we provide to our clients, in accordance with our contractual commitments. In this case, the data is processed exclusively within the scope of the assignment. We implement organizational and technical security measures to limit access to data and guarantee the confidentiality of the information processed in the specific context of our services.

Who are the recipients of your data?

Your data is intended for the services of Sia Partners. They may also be transmitted to third parties, such as service providers to whom we entrust the performance of certain activities (not, for example, the management of applications).

Sia Partners may be requested by the authorities to transmit personal data.

Sia Partners shall ensure that it has (including with its partners and service providers) sufficient guarantees with respect to the protection of personal data at each data transfer.

Who is responsible for your personal data in case of a link to a third party site?

If during navigation Sia Partners provides a link to a third party site, the rules and policies applicable to that site shall apply. Under no circumstances shall Sia Partners be held responsible for the processing of your personal data by a third party site.

Where are your data stored and processed?

As data regulation legislation is not equivalent between countries, Sia Partners has chosen to give priority to hosting and processing data on French territory, or where applicable a European Union country, or to contract with a company complying with the European Commission's Standard Contractual Clauses.

How long is your data kept?

Your data concerned by processing operations are kept in accordance with a set of rules. Sia Partners only processes data that is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for the purposes for which it is processed. This entails, in particular, ensuring that the data retention period is limited to the strict minimum. This retention period is variable and depends on the nature of the data, its purpose and the legal and regulatory aspects to which it is subject.

How your data is protected

Sia Partners ensures that the processing of personal data benefits from the highest level of security. Sia Partners guarantees the implementation of "appropriate technical and organisational measures", taken according to the nature of the data, the purposes of the processing and the associated risks. In the event of an incident leading to a violation of personal data, Sia Partners shall notify the incident to the competent supervisory authority and inform, if necessary, the persons concerned as soon as possible.

What are your rights?

In accordance with the applicable data protection regulations, you have the following rights:

  • a right of access and communication on the information concerning you and the associated processing;
  • a right of rectification with the possibility to complete and update your information;
  • a right to portability in order to transmit the information concerning the person by making the request to a third party when this is technically possible, it is specified that this right is only applicable to the data directly provided by the person;
  • a right to determine the fate of your data in the event of death;
  • the right to have the data deleted;
  • a right to limit the processing of your data;
  • a right to object to the processing;
  • a right to withdraw consent for the use of your data.

We bring to your attention the fact that when the law requires it, in the case of compliance with its contractual obligations, public interest, or legitimate interest, Sia Partners reserves the right, exceptionally, not to honor certain request contents (related to a request for deletion, limitation, and opposition).

Furthermore, in the case of requests that are manifestly unfounded or excessive, in particular, due to their repetitive nature, Sia Partners may either :

  • require the payment of reasonable fees that take into account the administrative costs incurred to provide the information, carry out the communications or take the requested measures ;
  • refuse to comply with such requests.

However, it shall be incumbent upon Sia Partners to demonstrate the manifestly unfounded or excessive nature of such requests.

How do you exercise your rights?

You may exercise your rights by enclosing a copy of an identity document with your application, either :

Sia Partners shall have a period of one month to reply to you. In the event of a complex request or a large number of requests, this period may be extended to three months. If necessary, Sia Partners will inform you.
