Personal data – Cookies

The privacy policy of JOEL FEAU and CIE (hereafter “Féau”) is likely to be updated on a regular basis. The changes to the privacy policy will apply from the first time they are posted online.

If one of the stipulations of the privacy policy were to be struck down by an Act, Regulation or final decision of a competent court, the other stipulations would keep their full force and scope.

Personal data refers to any information relating to a physical person identified or identifiable, directly or indirectly, including by reference to an identifier (name, first name, identification number, location data, etc.) or to specific elements of his or her physical, physiological, genetic, psychic, economic, cultural or social identity.

A “cookie” is a file sent to Users’ hard drive via their browser. This term covers all tracers deposited and/or read, including when viewing the Website, reading an email, installing or using a mobile software or application, regardless of the medium used.

a. Personal data collecting and processing

As Processing Manager, Féau collects, consults, stores, transmits and erases personal data to identify the Users when browsing the Website but also when Users voluntarily communicate their name, first name, mail, in the form “CONTACT” available on the Website or subscribe to Féau’s Newsletter.

Users guarantee the authenticity and the accuracy of all the data they provide on the Website via the clickable link “CONTACT” or during their exchanges with Féau and that constitute proof of these Users’ identity.

The data collected as part of the Newsletter subscription and the clickable link “CONTACT” voluntarily filled out by Users are mandatory and essential to managing Newsletter’s subscriptions and Users’ requests and claims. Users are informed that, in the absence of transmission of this personal data, Féau will not be able to grant their request. This personal data is stored on a secure database created on WordPress, exclusively accessed and used by Féau and only for the purpose of responding to Users’ requests.

Féau also uses “cookies” and/or “web tags” to adapt and optimize the Website’s display regarding the browsing preferences provided by Website Users (country, language, time zone, etc.) but also to ensure the proper functioning (functional cookies) and to analyze and measure attendance on the Website (audience cookies).

Functional cookies used by Féau are essential to the operation of the Website and to the navigation of Users since they allow Users to use the main features of the Website and secure their connection.

Users are informed that they may object to the registration of “cookies” and “web tags” by setting up their computer in accordance with the information on the CNIL website, within the “cookies” section.

Links on our Website can be used to access or interact with certain social networks (Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, LinkedIn, etc.) that can use “cookies” and “web tags” through the Website to collect personal data. Féau does not participate in the filing or reading of these “cookies” and/or “web tags” and does not collect or know the information collected via these “cookies” and/or “web tags“.

  • Pre-contracting procedures (request for quotes, etc.),
  • Respect of legal (claims, litigation, etc.), accounting and tax obligations,
  • Féau’s legitimate interests (protection and development of its activity and the Website, etc.) when the treatment does not infringe on people’s rights,

However, should personal data be transferred outside the European Union, Féau will take all necessary measures to ensure that the countries receiving the personal data provide a level of personal data protection equivalent to that provided by the European and French provisions.
