The body responsible for this processing is the Organization responsible for this site. The user may submit complaints regarding the protection of his/her data through the respective communication channels provided and to the party responsible, i.e., the body responsible for this site.

By filling in the form, you agree to your personal data being processed in the context of your request. This information is kept for the time required by the administration to fulfil processing.

Processing user statistics
Certain data relating to the user’s hardware and software which are not identifiable in nature are collected when the user visits the public site. The sole purpose of this collection is to obtain statistics on the number of visits (type of browser, resolution, approximate location, etc.) in order to provide users with the best possible service. The user’s full IP address is not stored under any circumstances. Only part of the IP address is kept in order to obtain global statistics, and in no case is it possible to identify a user. This data is stored and hosted in Europe in a solution provided by a subcontractor, namely Adobe Systems Inc. which, as a subcontractor, is subject to the same legal obligations concerning the protection of personal data in the event that such data is collected in the future. The duration of data retention does not exceed that necessary to observe the evolution of audiences according to the evolution of browsers, resolutions used, or other available statistical data. The body responsible for this processing is the Organisation responsible for this site.
Processing online surveys
User data is collected on a voluntary basis for the sole purpose of conducting surveys for state administrations. In addition, technical data for audience measurement are collected at the same time. The data is kept for the duration of the survey plus a few additional weeks for statistical analysis of the results. These surveys are carried out directly on the site of a subcontractor, in particular surveygizmo.eu by Widgix Limited, established in the United States. The data is hosted in Europe. The latter is subject to the same legal obligations concerning the protection of personal data when the surveys are intended for or carried out by users from the European Union. The procedures for implementing these surveys are such that no data can be traced back to an individual user. The combination of technical identification data (IP address or information on the user’s browser or device), and/or those of several surveys cannot lead to such identification by the subcontractor operating the platform. The person responsible for this processing and the recipient of the data is the Organisation responsible for this site that commissioned the survey.
Presence on social networks
Any user who joins the community of this site on social networks agrees to refrain any form of discrimination related to race, colour, religion, sex, sexual orientation, age, national origin, disability, marital status or professional status. Abusive, racist, sexist or offensive language has no place on social networks. It will be deleted and reported.
