  • – We collect any information you provide to us when you use our contact forms. Communication of your personal data via our contact forms does not constitute a regulatory or contractual requirement. However, please note that the fields marked with an asterisk (*) are mandatory, as we need this information to respond to your request. Any other information or personal data you share with us when you fill out our contact forms is entirely at your discretion. When you contact us, we record and store this correspondence.

When we collect personal data for other purposes, such as opening a candidate account or applying for a job, specific information is provided to you at the time you provide the data.

Our use of your personal information as described above is permitted under applicable data protection law because it is:

  • – Necessary for our legitimate interests in pursuit of the purposes set out above (i.e. purposes a) to g) above); these interests may not, in any event, override the protection of your privacy;
  • – In some cases, necessary in order to meet our legal and regulatory responsibilities, such as disclosure to relevant authorities, regulators or public institutions; or
  • – In some cases, necessary for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest and, in the case of recourse to special categories of personal data, necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims or for the processing of personal data that are clearly in the public domain;
  • – In certain circumstances, carried out with your consent, which you periodically provide to us when, for example, you agree to receive marketing communications and news by e-mail. See more information about B2B communications in the “Marketing Communications” section below.

We do not make decisions based solely on automated processing, including profiling, that have legal effect on you or significantly affect you.

The retention period for your personal data depends on the purpose for which it is processed and the tool used for its processing. It is not possible to set out the various data retention periods here in a reasonably comprehensible manner in the context of this policy. The criteria used to determine the applicable data retention period: we shall retain personal information as set forth in this policy for as long as (1) necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected, (2) necessary for the purposes of our business relationship with you, (3) you consent, and/or (4) required by applicable data retention laws and regulations.

Marketing Communications

B2B (business to business) communications : When you (representing or acting on behalf of a company or legal entity, whether private or public) provide us with your personal data by contacting us as a customer or prospect, you are giving EBC permission to send you marketing communications (usually sent by email). In this case, the processing of your personal data is legally based on our legitimate interest in developing our customer and prospect database, our customer loyalty programmes, and presenting you with our services or future services that may be of interest to you. In any case, if marketing communications are sent to you by email and you no longer wish to receive such communications, you may unsubscribe by clicking on the deregister or unsubscribe link in the email. You may also exercise your right to unsubscribe at any time by contacting us at contact@ebc-solutions.fr and providing the following information: your name, email address, phone number, and marketing communications you no longer wish to receive.

In order to facilitate the use of your information and provide you with content and/or resources, we communicate your information to third parties. However, such communication will only take place under the following circumstances:

  • Communication to suppliers and service providers : from time to time, we hire or engage other companies to perform certain functions on our behalf. This category of third parties includes data hosting providers. We may also pass on your details to training and social action organisations, which are themselves subject to a strict duty of confidentiality.
    Third party recipients to whom we transfer your data will have access to your data only to the extent necessary to perform their functions, and are not permitted to use your personal information for any other purpose. Such recipients will be subject to contractual confidentiality obligations.
