Data protection

Introduction

We attach great importance to respecting the privacy and personal data of our candidates, employees and site users. This privacy policy applies to the gathering and further processing of your personal data, collected during recruitment processes or when you visit the company’s website.

Personal data collected by the company

As part of our recruitment process and search for new talent, the company collects information appearing in the candidate’s CV as well as the history of exchanges by telephone or during physical interviews. In order to ensure data accuracy, the company asks people in its “Candidates” database to update their CVs every two years, after which time the company deletes all information related to the person concerned.

Our website uses “cookies” to collect information related to your visits: browsers used, traffic data, number of users, geographic data, operating systems used, devices used (PC, smartphone, tablets, etc.), web page preferences, browsing histories, the number of views of the pages visited, the number of clicks on a video, the addresses of websites previously visited if the Internet user clicked on a partner link (e.g.: a publication on a social network that led the Internet user to the site of one of our subsidiaries).

Collecting this information helps us improve the interactivity of our sites and services and thus facilitate your web user experience.
