Cookies, or similar technologies (e.g., web beacons, pixels, ad tags and device identifiers) are small files that a site or its service providers transfers to your computer’s hard drive through your Web browser (collectively, “Cookies”). They are used for the efficient operation of websites and can provide information and assist in the customization of services. Ingeniarts collects Personal Information provided by Cookies.
More specifically, Ingeniarts uses different types of Cookies:

They allow us to understand your behavior in order to improve the Platform.
- Cookies for advertising purposes: These Cookies are not essential to the provision of our services. They use information about your visit to the Platform, such as the pages visited or the response to advertisements, to help provide the best user experience for your situation.
Note that these Cookies may be temporary (i.e., they may be stored on your devices for the duration of your visit to the Platform, after which they are deleted) or persistent (i.e., they may be stored on your devices until they expire or are deleted and can be retrieved the next time you visit the Platform). The duration of our Persistent Cookies varies depending on their purpose.

Except as already provided by applicable privacy legislation, we will obtain your consent before using your Personal Information for any purpose not previously identified.
4. TO WHOM WE DISCLOSE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION
In the course of its business, we may disclose your information to third parties, including but not limited to:
- Third party service providers, including but not limited to Platform services (hosting, security, etc.). The Personal Information provided is then limited to only the Personal Information necessary to enable them to perform their services; and
- Governmental public authorities and law enforcement agencies where required by applicable law or where necessary for the provision of our products or services.
Except as set out above, Ingeniarts will not disclose your Personal Information to third parties without your prior consent. In addition, prior to disclosing your Personal Information to third parties, such third parties must agree to comply with strict contractual conditions requiring them to (i) maintain the confidentiality of the Personal Information disclosed to them; (ii) retain and use such Personal Information only for the purposes set out herein; and (iii) destroy such Personal Information once it has been used for the authorized purposes.
Finally, Ingeniarts will disclose your Personal Information if we are required to do so by law or by an order made by a court or authority with jurisdiction to compel us to disclose such Personal Information, or to protect or defend a legal interest.
5. YOUR CONSENT TO THE COLLECTION AND USE
Your consent to the collection, use and disclosure of your Personal Information is required, except where inappropriate (for example, for legal or security reasons, it may be impossible or impractical to obtain consent).
BY ACCESSING THE PLATFORM OR OTHERWISE USING Ingeniarts’S SERVICES, YOU EXPRESSLY PROVIDE US WITH YOUR CONSENT TO COLLECT, PROCESS AND USE YOUR PERSONAL INFORMATION IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PROVISIONS OF THIS POLICY.
You represent that you are aware of the purposes for which Ingeniarts collects, processes and uses your Personal Information, how it will be collected and how we protect the confidentiality of the Personal Information.
You may withdraw your consent at any time, subject to legal or contractual restrictions and reasonable notice. Refusal to disclose Personal Information or withdrawal of your consent may prevent us from providing or continuing to provide you with some of our products or services.
6. RETENTION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
Personal Information will be retained as long as necessary for the fulfillment of the identified purposes or for compliance with legal requirements regarding retention periods.
Any user may request that their account be deleted by sending a request to Ingeniarts by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
7. OUR SECURITY MEASURES
We implement industry-standard, state-of-the-art security measures to protect our customers from unauthorized access or use, alteration, unlawful or accidental destruction or loss of their Personal Information.
Unfortunately, it is impossible for us to guarantee the absolute security of the Personal Information collected or transmitted through the Platform.
You therefore understand and agree that (i) there are limits to the security and confidentiality of the Personal Information we collect that are beyond the control of Ingeniarts; and (ii) the security, integrity and confidentiality of all Personal Information and data exchanged between you and Ingeniarts through the Platform cannot be guaranteed; and (iii) such Personal Information may be viewed or altered by a third party at the time of transfer. For these reasons, Ingeniarts cannot be held responsible for any loss, capture or alteration of Personal Information.
8. ACCESS AND MODIFICATION OF PERSONAL INFORMATION
You may have access to some of your Personal Information through your user account on the Platform, if applicable. You can correct and update it from this access.
You may obtain a copy of your Personal Information or have it corrected, if it is incorrect, by sending us a written request by email.
No request for access, rectification or deletion may be considered unless it is made in writing by you when you prove that you are the individual concerned (or the representative, heir or successor of that individual, or the liquidator of the succession, a beneficiary of life insurance, as applicable).
When we receive a request for access, correction or removal, we will attempt to respond within a reasonable timeframe after receipt of the request.
In certain situations, Ingeniarts may not be able to provide access to all the Personal Information it holds about you. Exceptions to the access requirement are meant to be limited and specific. The reasons for denying access will be provided to you upon request.
Exceptions may include information that is prohibitively costly to provide, information that contains references to other individuals, information that cannot be disclosed for legal, security or commercial proprietary reasons and information that is subject to solicitor-client or litigation privilege.
A reasonable fee may be charged for the transcription, reproduction or transmission of Personal Information.
9. POLICY CHANGE AND UPDATE
Ingeniarts may, at its discretion, update, revise, modify or supplement this Policy from time to time. If a change is made to the Policy, you will be notified when you log in to your account and/or we will send you a link to the new version of the Policy. The Policy and any related agreements, if any, will be posted on the Platform. Ingeniarts will request that its users review the amended Policy before continuing to use the Platform.
The continued use of the Platform, after the amended Policy comes into effect, constitutes consent to such amended Policy.
10. EUROPEAN UNION DATA
This Section 10 only applies to Personal Information that is collected or processed on an individual located in the territory of the European Union at the time of such collection.
- Right to erasure
With some restrictions applicable, in accordance with the international application of the General Data Protection Regulation, you will be entitled to obtain from Ingeniarts the prompt deletion of your Personal Information and Ingeniarts is required to delete such Personal Information as soon as possible, where any of the reasons provided in the General Data Protection Regulation applies.
Where Ingeniarts has made the Personal Information public and is required to delete it, Ingeniarts, taking into account the available technologies and the costs of implementation, will take reasonable steps, including technical measures, to inform the data controller who process such Personal Information that you have requested that such data controller delete any link to or copy or reproduce such Personal Information.
This right of erasure shall not apply insofar as the Processing is necessary, in particular (i) for the exercise of the right to freedom of expression and information, (ii) for scientific research or statistical purposes, insofar as the right of erasure is likely to render impossible or seriously jeopardize the achievement of the purposes of the Processing; or (iii) for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.
- Right to restrict processing
You will be entitled to obtain from Ingeniarts a restriction to process when any of the following applies (i) for a period of time that allows Ingeniarts to verify the accuracy of the personal data while you dispute the accuracy of the Personal Information; (ii) the processing is unlawful and you object to the deletion of Personal Information and instead require a restriction to process by limiting the Personal Information use; (iii) Ingeniarts no longer requires the Personal Information for the purposes of the processing, but it is still necessary for you to establish, exercise or defend legal rights; or (iv) you object to the processing during a verification as to whether the legitimate grounds pursued by Ingeniarts prevail over your own.
- Right to Data Portability
You will be entitled to receive the Personal Information you have provided to Ingeniarts, in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, and you will be entitled to transmit such Personal Information to a third party without Ingeniarts impeding it where the processing is based on your consent and the processing is carried out using automated processes.
- Right to Object
You may object, at any time, for reasons relating to your particular situation, to the processing of your Personal Information which is necessary for the legitimate interests pursued by Ingeniarts or by a third party or for the performance of a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of a public authority vested in Ingeniarts, including profiling. Ingeniarts will no longer process Personal Information unless we demonstrate that there are compelling legitimate reasons for the processing that prevail over your interests, rights and freedoms or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal rights.
- Automated Individual Decision-Making, Including Profiling
You may not be the subject of a decision based exclusively on automated processing, including profiling, that produces legal effects concerning you or significantly affects you in a similar manner, unless the decision is (i) necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and Ingeniarts; (ii) authorized by the law to which Ingeniarts is subject and which also provides for appropriate measures to safeguard your rights, freedoms and legitimate interests; or (iii) based on your explicit consent.
