     2. Purpose of data protection 

The purpose of data protection is personal data. Personal data is described by the CNIL as "any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person". When an or set of operations relating to personal data is carried out, it is considered to be the processing of personal data.

As part of Skaleet, personal data is collected after the mandatory consent of the user. This consent is adequately collected (buttons and checkboxes), free, clear, and unequivocal following the applicable conditions defined in Articles 4 and 7 of the GDPR.

     4. Collecting your personal data  

On this website, various personal data may be collected.

          4.1. The data you send us directly

During the various contacts we have with you, you may need to provide us with information that concerns you.

These data are:

  • Names, first names, civility; 
  • E-mail address, phone number;
  • Information necessary for the delivery of an ordered product;
  • Username and encrypted password used to identify you on our sites or our applications;
  • Choice in business prospecting;
  • Any other information that you wish to bring our attention.

          4.2. The data we collect during our business relationship

The data that we collect during our business relationship with you include the following:

  • Information relating to the history of your business relationship;
  • Your attendance in events;
  • The request you have made to our customer service or the incidents you have reported to us;
  • Information concerning the purchases of products and services that you have made from our partners. 

          4.3. The data we collect automatically 

During each of your visits to our sites and applications, we collect information about your connection and your browsing. Different technologies can be used to collect this data. We refer to them generically as a "cookie".

– Data collected by standard Internet technologies 

We are also likely to use standard Internet technologies, such as scripts, pixels, and redirects. Scripts (sometimes called tags), written in javascript, are programs that run in your browser or mobile application and perform various actions, such as sending information to our servers. Scripts are also capable of creating pixels. Pixels (sometimes called transparent GIFs, clear GIFs, or web bugs) are lines of code that allow a graphic image (usually invisible) to be displayed on a web page or in an email. Redirects are used to make a web page available under multiple page addresses (URLs). When a browser opens a redirect URL, a page with a different URL is opened.

The purpose of these technologies is to improve your experience on our sites and applications, including providing you personalized content. For example, when a user clicks a share button on an article, a script creates a pixel that counts the share. Thus, we can know the total number of shares of a new, and we can establish the ranking of the most shared articles.

These technologies give us access to the following information:

  • Information relating to your use of our sites and applications; 
  • Information identifying the presence of cookies on your device, the time and date of viewing a page, and a description of the page where the web beacon is placed; 
  • Information on whether or not you read the e-mails we send you on the clicks you make on the links contained in these e-mails;
  • Our sites and mobile applications may also include scripts, pixels, and redirects from third parties. These technologies allow third-party service providers to collect certain information such as your browser type and the web page that referred you to our websites or mobile applications. These third-party service providers process the information they collect for audit, research, and reporting purposes about our sites and applications and the advertisements viewed on them. We do not share your identification data with these third parties as part of their use of these technologies.

– Data provided by mobile devices 

Some mobile devices, depending on the permissions you have granted to the mobile application and which you can modify at any time (for example: "notification" or "Geolocation"), send information: your phone model, version its operating system, type of connectivity, name, and version of the application used.

This data are processed by our servers, and those of our partners (in particular Google Analytics), to be able to provide you a service and advertising adapted to the technical characteristics of your device and to measure the audience of our mobile applications.

 If you have accepted this feature (geolocation), we can identify the physical location of your device, especially to inform you about the content or offers that we think are in line with your expectations. Following applicable law, geolocation functions can be deactivated at any time in the settings of your device.

          4.4 The data we guess

We are likely to establish presuppositions about the content and services able to meet your expectations or your uses.

– The subcontractors

For the distribution of services, we depend on external contracted companies and external service providers ("processors"). In this case, the personal data will be transferred to these subcontractors to enable them to continue processing the data. These subcontractors are carefully selected and regularly checked by us to guarantee the protection of your privacy.

– Social media platforms

The use of social networks to interact with our sites and applications (especially the “share” and “connect via” buttons of Twitter, and LinkedIn) are indeed likely to lead to the collection of personal data by the social networks concerned.

For example, if you are connected to the social network LinkedIn and you visit a page of the website address, LinkedIn is likely to collect this information. Likewise, if you visit an article on the website address and click on the "tweet" button, Twitter will collect this information.

We invite you to be careful and to consult the personal data protection policies of these social networks to take precise knowledge of the information that is collected by its sites and applications, as well as the purposes of use of your data, in particular for advertising. You can sometimes set the access and confidentiality of your data directly on the social networks used.

The use of these "social network" buttons is done at your initiative and under your full accountability. Skaleet is not responsible for the processing of your data that will be done by these third party social networks.

If it is necessary to discover or investigate the illegal use of our services, data will be transmitted to law enforcement authorities. However, this only happens if there are specific indications of illegal activity. We are also legally obliged to provide information to certain public authorities upon request. These are law enforcement authorities, authorities that prosecute administrative offenses punishable by a fine, and tax authorities. The transfer of this data is justified by our legitimate interest in preventing abuse, in prosecuting criminal offenses and in obtaining, asserting, and enforcing legal rights, and by the fact that your rights and interests in the protection of your data do not prevail.

          7.4. Transfer outside the European Union

We store your data in the European Union. However, it is marginally possible that the data we collect when you use our platforms or as part of our services may be transferred to subcontractors or business partners located in other countries, some of them, which may have less protective personal data protection legislation than that in force in the country where you reside. In the event of a transfer of this type, we ensure that the processing is carried out following this privacy policy and that it is framed by the standard contractual clauses of the European Commission that make it possible to guarantee a sufficient level of protection of privacy and fundamental rights of individuals.
