PRIVACY POLICY

last updated: July 17, 2021

Summary

When you access and use our Website: www.sciencetothepoint.com, we may collect some personal and usage data. In order to optimise and provide our services to you, we may use cookies or similar technologies. Some cookies may also be associated with the plug-ins of LinkedIn Inc. (‘LinkedIn buttons’) which are provided and possibly used by LinkedIn Inc. To learn more about these, see the LinkedIn Privacy Policy.

Moreover, you are bound to provide some personal data if you fill in and submit any form on our Website (e.g. the quote request form or a training registration form). The data and documents you will provide through any of these forms shall always be treated as confidential and shall be used only for the purposes of setting up or performing our contract(s) with you. We do not share these data with any third party.

Any and all your data are stored and processed within the European Union (EU) and in compliance with the EU regulations.

Personal Data – definition

Personal data is defined by the General Data Protection Regulation (EU Regulation 2016/679; the “GDPR”) as “any information relating to an identifiable person who can be directly or indirectly identified in particular by reference to an identifier”. In simpler terms, Personal Data is any information about you that enables you to be identified. Personal Data covers obvious information, such as your name and contact details, but it also covers less obvious information such as identification numbers, electronic location data, and other online identifiers.

What this Privacy Policy covers

This Privacy Policy applies only to your use of our Website: www.sciencetothepoint.com (further called “The Website”). Our Website may contain links to other websites. Please note that we have no control over how your data is collected, stored, or used by other websites and we advise you to check the privacy policies of any such websites before providing any data to them.

Your rights under the GDPR

Whenever we collect your personal data, you have the following rights defined by the GDPR.
The right to be informed. The aim of this privacy notice is to tell you how (if) Science to the Point collects and uses your personal data. We also inform you about specific data processing practices when you provide us with those data.
The right of access. You have the right to contact us at any time to request a copy of the data we hold about you.
The right to rectification and the right to erasure. We want to make sure that your personal data are accurate and up to date. You may ask us to correct or remove data you think are inaccurate.
The right to data portability. Since the services we provide are unique, we can only give you a list of the personal data we hold, so data portability as such does not apply.
The right to restrict processing and the right to object. You may ask us to restrict our processing of your data or object to such processing. Should you have any other concerns, please contact us. You may also lodge a complaint with the supervisory authority in France or in the country where you live.
Rights in relation to automated decision making and profiling. Science to the Point does not use automated decision making or profiling, so these rights do not apply.
If you wish to exercise any or all of these rights at any moment, just contact us.
