Article 3 – Content of the Internet site

All the mentions, brand names, photographs, texts, commentaries, illustrations, images, whether animated or otherwise, video sequences, sounds, and any IT applications that may be used to make this site function and more generally all the elements reproduced or used on this site are protected by the intellectual property legislation currently in force.

They are the full and entire property of the editor or its partners. Any reproduction, representation, use or adaptation in any form whatsoever of all or part of these elements, including the IT applications, without first obtaining the editor’s agreement in writing is strictly prohibited. In the event of the editor not instigating proceedings as soon as it has knowledge of such unauthorised use, this shall not constitute either acceptance of that use or renunciation of recourse to proceedings.

Article 4 – Management of the Internet site

For the good management of this Internet site, the editor may at any time:

- suspend, interrupt or limit access to all or part of this Internet site, or limit access to all or part of this Internet site by a specific category of Internet users;

- delete any information that may disturb its functioning or contravene national or international legislation;

- suspend this Internet site in order to proceed with updates.

Article 5 - Liability

The editor may not be held liable in the event of any failure, breakdown, difficulty or interruption of functioning that prevents access to this Internet site or to any one of its functions.

The device used by the Internet user to connect to this site is that person’s entire responsibility. Internet users should take appropriate steps to protect their device and their own data, including from Internet-borne virus attacks. Furthermore, Internet users are solely responsible for their choice of the sites and data they consult.

The editor cannot be held liable in the event of any legal proceedings being brought against it:

- as a result of the use made of the Internet site or any service accessible via Internet;

- as a result of the Internet user’s disregard of these general conditions.

The editor cannot be held liable for any damage caused to an Internet user, to any third party, and/or to their device as a result of their connexion to or use of the site, and these persons shall decline taking any action against the editor in that respect.

Should the editor be involved in out-of-court or court proceedings as a result of an Internet user’s use of this site, it may enter a counterclaim against the Internet user to obtain compensation for any prejudice, sums, sentences and expense such proceedings may entail.

Article 6 – Hypertext links

Any hypertext link to all or part of this Internet site that may be set up by a user is the total responsibility of that user.

The editor has no control over any information that may be accessible via a link to another site, and cannot be held responsible for its content.

Article 7 – Collection of data

Any data is collected by the BALLAUFF.

“Personal data” refers to any information in respect of an identified or identifiable natural person (‘the person concerned’); a person is deemed to be identifiable if he/she can be identified directly or indirectly, for example by referring to a name, identification number or one or more particular elements specific to his/her physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity.

The personal information that may be collected on this Internet site is principally used by the editor for managing its relations with Internet users, and as appropriate also for processing their requests. It is recorded in the editor’s client file, and the record drawn up from data of a personal nature has been declared to the appropriate French authorities (CNIL).

The editor’s CNIL number is currently in the process of being registered.

Article 8 – Right of access to, rectification and dereferencing of an Internet user’s data

Everyone has the right to access, rectify and oppose personal data stored about them. Everyone also has the right to restrict the processing of personal data about them, the right to be dereferenced, and the right to the portability of the personal data they have transmitted to the person responsible for processing.

You may exercise this right by contacting us by post at the following address:
BALLAUFF, S.A. – 21, place des Vosges 75003 Paris [France]

or by e-mail at the following address : g.dannaud@ballauff.fr

All requests must be accompanied by a photocopy of a currently valid signed identity document and an indication of the address where the editor may contact the person. The reply will be sent during the month following receipt of the request. This one-month delay may be extended by a further two months if the complexity of the request and/or the number of requests so demand.

Moreover, since the adoption of [French] Act No. 2016-1321 on 7 October 2016, anyone who so wishes has the possibility of deciding what is to happen to data about them [in France] after their death. You will find further information on this point on the website of the CNIL at https://www.cnil.fr/.

Article 9 – Use of the data

The information collected may be communicated to third parties contractually bound to the editor for the performance of subcontracted tasks necessary for the management of the account of an Internet user without his/her authorisation being required.

In the event of an offence involving the parties being committed in respect of which the judicial authorities need to have knowledge of the information collected, the information would then necessarily be communicated to those authorities at their specific, reasoned request, and would cease to be covered by the provisions protecting personal data.

Where certain items of information are compulsory to be able to access specific functions on the site, the editor shall indicate their compulsory nature at the time the data is entered.

Article 10 – Commercial offers

If, while visiting this site, an Internet user accesses data of a personal nature, he/she must refrain from any unauthorised collection or use and any act that might constitute an invasion of privacy or be damaging to another person’s reputation. The editor declines all liability in this respect.

The data is retained and used for a period of time in compliance with the legislation in force.
