We can’t store your personal data beyond the time required for the treatment for which it was collected. In concrete terms, we distinguish a retention period and an archival period.
♣ The retention period is the maximum period of use of your data for a specific treatment. When it expires (either the purpose pursued has been completed or has disappeared, or your right to oppose has been successful), your data is erased from our database.

As soon as we no longer need your personal data, we delete or destroy it safely.

In the case of international transfers from the EEA to a third country for which the European Commission has made a decision of adequacy recognizing a level of protection of personal data equivalent to the one provided by the EEA legislation, your personal data will be transferred on this basis.
