5. Protection of privacy – Collection and use of personal data

Citelum never requires users to provide personal information (name, address, e-mail, profession, etc.). However, users may be asked to provide certain personal information, particularly if they wish to receive certain data or documents.

Personal information or data furnished by users must be accurate, lawful, and without harm to the interests of others.

Personal data communicated to Citelum are intended solely for use by Citelum, which is responsible for its processing and storage. These data will not be communicated to third parties, except for third parties who host the Site or are involved in its Content or management. These third parties are required to keep the data confidential, and may not in any case use it for any purpose other than the operation or management of the Site.

Citelum will take every reasonable measure within its power to maintain the confidentiality of these personal data, that is to say for a period of three years at the end of our relationship, then are archived in order to meet our legal obligations or for probationary purposes or are anonymized at for studies and statistics.

The database containing these personal data complies rigorously with Decision 2006-138 of May 9, 2006 of the CNIL (the French National Commission on Information Technology and Civil Liberties) on the exemption from notification of processing for purposes of information and communication with third parties (notification exemption decision No. 7). Citelum is therefore exempted from notifying the CNIL when the data are processed.

Please note also that connecting to a Web server has the effect of sending a small quantity of data to your browser, which will be stored on your computer’s hard disk. These are “cookies,” which record information about your computer’s navigation through the Site (pages visited, date and time of the visit, etc.) that Citelum and/or its technical service providers may read when you visit again.

Your browser has a function that allows you to refuse cookies (for specific instructions, see the CNIL website). Refusing cookies will not prevent you from connecting to our Site, but it may make pages slower to load.
