However, we collect personal information from you only when:

- We need your personal information to supply a service or perform a contract or agreement concluded with you; or
- When the processing is in our legitimate interest and it is not replaced by your interests regarding data protection or by your fundamental rights and liberties.
In some cases, it may be that we are bound by law to collect personal information from you or that we have other needs of your personal data to protect your vital interests or those of another person.
If you have any questions or need information about the legal framework we rely on to collect and use your personal information, please contact us by using the contact details supplied in the section “Changes and contact” below.
4- THE INFORMATION WE SHARE
It may be that we disclose your personal information to the following categories of recipient:

Our partners include repair or installation service providers, resellers or distributors, contractual manufacturers and product suppliers.
- any competent organisation responsible for applying the law, any governmental, regulatory agency, any court or other third parties to which we think it is necessary to disclose personal information in virtue of the laws or regulations in force, to exercise, establish or defend our legal rights or protect your vital interests or those of another person;
- any other person to whom you have authorised us to disclose information.
5- HOW WE PROTECT PERSONAL INFORMATION
We take data protection and privacy seriously. We maintain organisational, technical and physical protection systems in place in view of protecting personal information against accidental, illegal or unauthorised destruction, loss, alteration, access or disclosure. Being given that the submission of information on the Internet is never entirely safe, we cannot guarantee the safety of the information you submit to us via the Internet, and such submissions of information are made at your own risk.
6- DATA RETENTION
We keep the personal data we collect from you when we have ongoing legitimate commercial need of it (for example to supply you with a service or solution or to comply with legal, fiscal and accounting obligations).
When we have no legitimate commercial need to process your personal data, we will delete it or we will anonymise it or if this is not possible (for example, because your personal information is stored in backup archives), then we will store your personal information in a secure way and we will isolate it from any other processing until it is possible to delete it.
7- YOUR RIGHTS AND OPTIONS
Insofar as provided by the governing law in your jurisdiction, you have the right to:
- access certain personal information that we maintain about you and obtain a copy of this information;

In the same way, if we have collected and processed your personal information with your consent, you can withdraw your consent at any time. The withdrawal of your consent will not affect the legality of any processing we have carried out before your withdrawal, and will not affect the processing of your personal information made on a legal basis other than the consent either.
You have the right to file a complaint with the CNIL against the collection and use we make of your personal information.
To exercise these rights, please contact us and we will take into account your request in accordance with the laws on data protection in force. In order to protect your privacy and maintain security, we can take measures to check your identity before granting you access to the information.

Our websites may contain links to third party websites. We are not responsible for the content or confidentiality practices used by other websites.
9- INTERNATIONAL TRANSFERS
Your personal information may be transferred and processed in countries other than your country of residence. These countries may have laws on data protection different from the laws of your country (and in some cases, may not be as protective).
More specifically, we use Google Analytics on our website that is a tool made available by the American company Google. This means that when we collect your personal information, we can process it outside of the European Union.
However, we have taken appropriate precautions to demand that your personal information remains protected in accordance with this Confidentiality notice. When we transfer your personal information to other countries, we rely on:
- adequacy decisions of the European commission, which recognise that countries outside of the EEA listed here have national laws that protect personal information according to substantially similar standards demanded by the law of the European Union;
- Standard contractual clauses of the European commission that demand that recipients outside of the EEA of personal information continue to protect the personal information they receive according to the standards demanded by the law of the European Union.
