X. Data retention

The Company collects and retains your personal data for the purposes of fulfilling its contractual obligations as well as information on how and how often you use our services. Personal data must be retained only for as long as is necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was collected. The Company only stores your data for as long as is necessary to provide the service, and as such, the Company deletes your bank details once the service has been completed. The storage of our customers’, professionals’, consumers’ and users’ data varies according to the type of data concerned. For example, your statistical data that is more than 13 months old will be deleted. Other data may be deleted at any time, in accordance with the provisions set out above.

Retention period for personal and sensitive data
Data is kept for the duration of the contractual relationship and beyond.
In accordance with article 6-5° of law no. 78-17 of 6 January 1978 on data processing, data files and individual liberties, sensitive data (bank card) that is processed is not kept beyond the time required to fulfil the obligations defined when the contract was concluded or the predefined duration of the contractual relationship.

Personal data (surname, first name, email address, postal address) that is processed is kept for a period of 3 years in our reservation software.

The hosting servers on which the Company processes and stores your data on the site are located exclusively in the European Union.

The Company undertakes to inform you immediately, insofar as we are legally authorised to do so, in the event of a request from an administrative or judicial authority relating to your data.

XII. Security

As part of its services, the Company attaches the utmost importance to the security and integrity of the personal data of its customers, consumers, professionals and users. Accordingly, and in accordance with the RGPD, the Company undertakes to take all necessary precautions to preserve the security of the data and in particular to protect it against any accidental or unlawful destruction, accidental loss, alteration, unauthorised distribution or access, as well as against any other form of unlawful processing or communication to unauthorised persons.

To this end, the Company implements standard digital industry security measures to protect personal data from unauthorised disclosure. By using the encryption methods recommended by the digital industry, the Company takes the necessary measures to protect payment information, bearing in mind that the Company does not offer payment directly on site but uses an external service secured by our subcontractor D-EDGE.

Furthermore, in order to prevent any unauthorised access and to guarantee the accuracy and proper use of the data, the Company has put in place electronic and manual procedures to safeguard and preserve the data collected through its services.

Even so, no one can consider themselves completely safe from an attack by hackers. This is why, in the event of a security breach affecting you, the Company undertakes to inform you as soon as possible and to make its best efforts to take all possible measures to neutralise the intrusion and minimise its impact.

In the event that you suffer damage as a result of the exploitation of a security vulnerability by a third party, the Company undertakes to provide you with all necessary assistance so that you can assert your rights.

You should bear in mind that any User, customer or hacker who discovers a security vulnerability and exploits it may be subject to criminal penalties and that the Company will take all measures, including filing a complaint and/or taking legal action, to protect the data and rights of its Users and itself and to limit the impact as far as possible.

Informing the User in the event of a security breach
We undertake to implement all appropriate technical and organisational measures using physical and logistical security measures in order to guarantee a level of security appropriate to the risks of accidental, unauthorised or illegal access, disclosure, alteration, loss or destruction of your personal data. In the event that we become aware of unlawful access to your personal data stored on our servers or those of our service providers, or of unauthorised access resulting in the risks identified above, we undertake to :

  • Notify you of the incident as soon as possible if this is required by law;
  • Examine the causes of the incident;
  • Take reasonable steps to mitigate the negative effects and damage that may result from the incident.
  • Limiting liability

Under no circumstances may the undertakings set out in the point above relating to notification in the event of a security breach be assimilated to any acknowledgement of fault or responsibility for the occurrence of the incident in question.

XIII. Responsibilities and Guarantees

Except in the case of force majeure, the Company guarantees the User, Consumer, Customer or Professional that its service will be carried out correctly and in compliance with these General Terms and Conditions.

Any compensation owed by the Company to the User or to a third party as a result of the liability of the Company, its subsidiaries or its partners in respect of the performance of these General Terms and Conditions may not exceed the price paid by the User, Client, Professional or Consumer in return for the service(s) giving rise to said liability (e.g. the price of a room).

The Company does not systematically control the way in which its services are used, in particular the use of the equipment available in the room and the common areas, which remains the responsibility of the Client, Consumer or Professional.

Under no circumstances may the Company be held liable to third parties for any prejudice resulting from the use of the services on behalf of the User, Client, Consumer or Professional in any capacity whatsoever.

Responsibility of the User
The Customer, Consumer, Professional or User is solely responsible for the way in which he/she uses the room, the common areas and the equipment made available to him/her in the context of the performance of these conditions.

XIV. Portability of Data

The Company undertakes to offer you the possibility of having all your personal data returned to you on request. The User is thus guaranteed better control of his or her data, and retains the possibility of re-using it. This data must be supplied in an open and easily reusable format, directly into the hands of another data controller where this is desired and technically possible.

XV. Deletion of Data

Deletion of data on request
Users, Clients, Consumers and Professionals may delete their Data at any time by simply requesting the Company to do so.

Deletion of a reservation in the event of a breach of the Confidentiality Policy
In the event of a breach of one or more of the provisions hereof or of any other document incorporated herein by reference, the Company reserves the right to cancel your reservation without any possibility of reimbursement if payment has already been made.

XVI. Transfer of Data to Countries with an Equivalent Level of Protection

The Company undertakes to comply with the applicable regulations relating to data transfers, even though the Company does not currently transfer data to foreign countries for almost all of its processing. Where necessary to provide our services, this is done as follows:

The Company transfers the personal data of its Users, Customers, Consumers and Professionals to countries recognised as offering an equivalent level of protection and recognised by the CNIL as having a sufficient level of protection.
The Company transfers the personal data of its Users, Clients, Consumers and Professionals to recipients who can offer sufficient guarantees of compliance with the RGPD.
The Company only transfers the personal data of its Users, Customers, Consumers and Professionals insofar as this is strictly necessary for the purpose of the processing concerned, i.e. booking a room at the Pierre Nicole Hotel.

At present, the only processing operations covered by this provision concern :

The reservation of services offered by the Company to the user who has decided to make a reservation via the subcontractor D-EDGE from the Company’s website. Only the following data is transferred: CUSTOMER ID, email address, purchase amount, product description, email address, telephone number, postal address (if indicated), 16-digit bank card number and its validity date.
