  1. ATELIER PERCEVAL, data processing manager and its Personal Data Advisor

The data processing manager is SARL ATELIER PERCEVAL, listed in the Clermont-Ferrand RCS under number 408 463 990, having its head office at 2O AVENUE DES ETATS UNIS - 63300 THIERS.

Our company is not required to designate a Data Protection Officer (DPO) insofar as:

- it is neither a public authority nor a public organisation, 

- it does not carry out any data processing operations that, by their nature, their scope and/or their outcomes, require large-scale regular and systematic follow-up of the people involved; and

- its core business activities do not involve the large-scale processing of special categories of sensitive data or personal data concerning criminal convictions or offences.  

Despite this, our company has chosen to designate a Personal Data Advisor that you can contact if you have any queries on this regulation:

  1. Who can access my personal data?

Our company agrees to share and/or make your personal data available solely to persons on a “need to know” basis, i.e.:

  • The relevant managers (Yves Charles, General Manager, Sonia Genest, Administrative Manager, Barbara Mandon, Export Manager, Claire Roch, eCommerce Manager)

  • Public authorities when so required by law.


  1. What steps are taken to ensure the security and privacy of my personal data?

Please note that the security and privacy of personal data is the duty of all within our organisation.

The premises where such data is stored are kept locked and can only be accessed by authorised staff.

All computers and IT tools are password protected. In accordance with ATELIER PERCEVAL instructions, these passwords are changed on a regular basis.

All the collected data is hosted on secure servers. Encrypted backups of this data are stored on physical secure servers.

All staff who work on this data have signed a non-disclosure agreement.

Our providers have all signed contracts that include security and privacy commitments and/or are in the process of signing up to such commitments.


  1. How long does the company keep my personal data?

Your personal data is stored throughout the contract period, after which they are archived for the statutory period. These statutory periods vary depending on the nature of the data; please contact us if you would like further information on this issue.

For instance, unless the Customer uses their right of opposition, data on their personal contact details are kept for prospecting purposes for a period of three (3) years as from the date of the last contact with the prospect or on termination of business relations.

Other data are only stored for the time required to perform the services, after which they are archived for the statutory periods (5 years for contracts, 10 years for contracts signed electronically and 10 years as from the end of the financial year for accounting documents).

If you have any questions concerning the storage period of your personal data please contact our Data Protection Advisor - contact details given at the top of these GTCS.


  1. Are my personal data shared outside the European Union?

As a matter of principle, data are not shared outside the European Union and are stored internally on our company’s servers. 

In cases where a technical provider or subcontractor processes data on our behalf, we make sure that:

  • Either they do not share this data outside the European Union
  • Or, the data is shared with a country that has received a favourable adequacy decision
  • Or, the data is shared after having implemented the appropriate guarantees, such as:
    • Establishing binding corporate rules
    • Establishing standard data protection terms


  1. What are my rights?

No automated decision (i.e. profiling) is taken on the basis of the collected personal data.

  • right of access by the data subject,
  • right to object,
  • right to withdraw your consent at any time when the data processing operation requires your consent.

  • right to query,
  • right to rectification,
  • right to erasure “right to be forgotten”,
  • right to restriction of processing,
