These commitments represent the way we intend to conduct our daily business.

When we collect and process data, we ensure that it is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for the purposes of the processing carried out. We take measures to ensure that the data we process is accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date.
If you refuse to provide us with this information, we may not be able to provide our services to you effectively in some cases.
We protect your personal data through physical and logical measures such as access restrictions to materials and premises, password policies.
Recipients of the data
We do not pass on your personal data to third parties, except to our subcontractors or to third parties who are legally entitled by law or by virtue of their function to know it.
Transfer of data outside the European Union
All the personal data we process are hosted in France. Consequently, we do not transfer any personal data outside the European Union.
However, the specificities of a case with an international scope and the interests of our clients may lead us in certain cases to transfer personal data outside the European Union, in which case these transfers are based alternatively on :
- the necessity of the transfer for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims (Art. 49 e) GDPR);
- the necessity of the transfer for the performance of the contract concluded between the firm and our clients or the implementation of pre-contractual measures taken at the request of our clients (Art. 49 b) GDPR).
We only keep your data for as long as is necessary for the purposes of the processing carried out, depending on whether your data has been processed as part of the management of your file and to take account of our legal obligations.
