In this policy, ‘we’ or ‘us’ refers to these two companies, which may act together as joint data controllers for the processing activities referred to below.

Focus on profiling to personalise our content:

We are able to personalise the display of content on our website and send you newsletters or push notifications to your mobile phone that are tailored to your needs.

We implement this personalisation solely on the basis of the information we have collected directly from you during your purchases (and only this information), and your browsing data on our website or our mobile app, once you have accepted cookies.

This information also enables us to target our advertising campaigns on third-party sites (e.g. social networks) better so that they match your interests more closely.

The data used for this profiling is based on:

-    A maximum 5-year history of your customer account data; 
-    A maximum 12-month history for browsing data on our website and/or mobile app.

6. Are they any specific measures for children ?

Although the family aspect of our activities is at the heart of our concerns, we do not process any data specifically relating to children.

If a person under the age of 15 uses our services, we recommend that they are supported by an adult. If necessary, the consent of parents or legal guardians may be obtained at the time the data is collected.

7. Where is your data stored ?

All your personal data is stored exclusively on servers located in the European Union or in countries offering an ‘adequate’ level of protection (e.g. the United Kingdom, Switzerland).

Although this data is hosted in the European Union, it may be accessible from third countries when we use technical service providers (e.g. AWS, Adobe, Microsoft, Google) that are based abroad (i.e. United Kingdom, United States, Israel). Access from these countries is considered as a data transfer, but is necessary for the smooth operation and maintenance of the IT tools they offer. These service providers have real expertise that justifies their involvement.

We do everything we can with these service providers to ensure that your data is protected in accordance with European regulations. These service providers only act in accordance with our instructions. Contracts are systematically signed with the latter, and transfers of personal data are governed by enhanced contractual clauses specifically designed for this purpose (standard contractual clauses – SCCs – published by the European Commission) where the laws of the country concerned do not offer protection equivalent to the GDPR (so-called ‘adequate’ countries). Where necessary, additional technical or legal measures are put in place.

8. How is your date kept secure ?

The security of your personal data is a core concern for the companies in the Compagnie des Alpes Group, which pool their resources to ensure that you benefit from an appropriate level of security that is up to date with industry standards.

In order to preserve the confidentiality and security of your personal data, and in particular to protect it against any unlawful or accidental destruction, accidental loss or alteration, or unauthorised disclosure or access, the Compagnie des Alpes Group takes the appropriate technical and organisational measures, and requires that its data processors meet the same high standards. These measures are adapted to the sensitivity of the data processed and the level of risk.

The Compagnie des Alpes Group has put in place procedures to detect, analyse and monitor security incidents and any suspected breach of your personal data, and to be able to block access to the data at any time. Procedures for managing personal authorisations have also been put in place to ensure that access to data is as restricted as possible.

Despite our efforts, vulnerabilities may still exist in our systems. If you think you have detected a vulnerability, please contact us using this form (vulnerability disclosure page), observing the principles described there.

9. What rights do you have over your data ?

You have a number of rights in relation to your personal data held by us:

-    The right to object: You no longer wish to receive our sales communications and wish to object to a decision linked to your profiling, or withdraw consent 
-    The right to rectify your data: Moving house? changing email address? let us know by keeping your details up to date! 
-    The right to access your data: You may request a copy of all your personal data held by us, in a comprehensible format. 
-    The right to erase your data: You wish to delete your entire customer account and erase all your personal data in our possession. We will comply with your request, with the exception of accounting and tax records relating to your transactions, as well as those required to create our evidence files (in the event of any legal proceedings), which must be kept.
-    The right to freeze the use of your data: If you are faced with a litigious situation and wish to prevent the deletion of your data, your data will be retained without being used. 
-    The right to port your data: You want to recover some of your data. You are then free to store it elsewhere or transfer it easily from one system to another, so that it can be re-used for other purposes. 

You will find all our contact details below in order to exercise these rights.
