1. An overview of data protection


The following Privacy Policy is intended to give you an overview of what happens to your personal information when you visit our website.
This Privacy Policy is applicable to visitors of the website as well as the subscribers to the newsletter mailing list.
This Privacy Policy describes how we process personal data concerning the visitors of the website.
This Privacy Policy may be updated if required in order to reflect the changes in data processing practices or otherwise.
Data collection on the website

Who is responsible for the data collection on this website?

L-UP is the controller of the data processing described in this Privacy Policy.

How do we collect your data?
Some data are collected when you provide it to us (registration to the newsletter mailing list). Other data are collected automatically by our IT systems when you visit the website. This data is primarily technical data such as the browser and operating system you are using or when you accessed the page. These data is collected automatically as soon as you use our website.

What do we use your data for?
We process your personal data to send you public newsletters from the project. In any case, we use only aggregated, non-personally identifiable data. When visiting our website, statistical analyses may be made of your surfing behaviour. This happens primarily using analytics. The analysis of your surfing behaviour is anonymous, i.e. we will generally not be able to identify you from this data.

2. General information

Data protection

L-UP takes the protection of your personal data very seriously. We treat your personal data as confidential and in accordance with the statutory data protection regulations and this Privacy Policy. L-UP does not store personal data longer than is legally permitted and necessary for the purposes of this Privacy Policy. The storage period depends on the nature of the information and the purposes of processing. The maximum period may therefore vary per use. Most personal data relating to the website will be deleted after a reasonable time. Thereafter, a part of the personal data may be stored only as long as such processing is required by law or is reasonably necessary for our legal obligations or legitimate interests such as legal proceedings, bookkeeping and internal reporting.

3. Your rights

Revocation of your consent to the processing of your data

Many data processing operations are only possible with your express consent. You may revoke your consent at any time with future effect. An informal e-mail making this request is sufficient. Withdrawing a consent may lead to fewer possibilities to use the services proposed on the website (e.g. registration to the newsletter mailing list). The withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Right to file complaints with regulatory authorities

If there has been a breach of data protection legislation, the person affected may file a complaint with the competent regulatory authorities. In case website visitors consider our processing of personal data to be inconsistent with the applicable data protection laws, a complaint may be lodged with the local supervisory authority for data protection. The competent regulatory authority for matters related to data protection legislation is the data protection officer of the French state in which our company is headquartered. A list of data protection officers and their contact details can be found at the following link: https://www.cnil.fr/fr/rgpd-par-ou-commencer/

Right to data portability

Website visitors have the right to receive their personal data that they have provided to us in a structured and commonly used format (excel file) and to independently transmit those data to a third party. If you require the direct transfer of data to another responsible party, this will only be done to the extent technically feasible.

Rights to access, recification, erasure and restriction of processing

As permitted by law, you have the right to be provided at any time with information free of charge about any of your personal data that is stored as well as its origin, the recipient and the purpose for which it has been processed. You can contact us at any time using the address given herein if you have further questions on the topic of personal data. Website visitors have the right to have incorrect or incomplete personal data we have stored corrected or completed. Website visitors may also ask us to erase their personal data from our systems. We will comply with such request unless we have a legitimate ground to not delete the data.

Right to object

Website visitors may object to the processing of personal data if such data is processed for other purposes than purposes necessary for the performance of services on the website or for compliance with a legal obligation. In case we do not have legitimate grounds to continue processing such personal data, we shall no longer process the personal data after your objection.
We will not use your personal data for direct marketing purposes.

4. Data security


We use administrative, organizational, technical, and physical safeguards to protect the personal data we collect and process. Measures include for example, where appropriate, firewalls and access right systems. Our security controls are designed to maintain an appropriate level of data confidentiality, integrity, availability, resilience and ability to restore the data. Should despite of the security measures, a security breach occur that is likely to have negative effects to the privacy of website visitors, we will inform the relevant website visitors and other affected parties, as well as relevant authorities when required by applicable data protection laws, about the breach as soon as possible.

Newsletter data

If you would like to receive our newsletters, we require a valid e-mail address as well as information that allows us to verify that you agree to receive the newsletters. You can revoke consent to the storage of your data and e-mail address as well as their use for sending the newsletters at any time, e.g. through the “unsubscribe” option in the e-mails sending the newsletters.

Analytics and advertising

Google Analytics
This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service. Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”. These are text files that are stored on your computer and that allow an analysis of the use of the website by you. The information generated by the cookie about your use of this website is usually transmitted to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Google Analytics cookies are stored based on Art. 6 (1) (f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in analysing user behaviour to optimise both its website and its advertising.

LinkedIn is informed that you have visited our web pages from your IP address. If you use the LinkedIn “Recommend” button and are logged into your LinkedIn account, it is possible for LinkedIn to associate your visit to our website to your user account. We would like to point out that, as the provider of these pages, we have no knowledge of the content of the data transmitted or how it will be used by LinkedIn.
