2. Your rights regarding your personal data

The GDPR gives you important rights regarding your personal data, which is any information that can be used to identify you:

  • A right to receive clear and understandable information about who is processing your data, what data they are processing and why they are processing it
  • A right to access and correct the personal data an organisation has about you
  • A right to request one service provider to transmit your personal data to another service provider
  • A right to erasure, or ‘to be forgotten’ by a company – your data will be deleted unless the company has a legitimate reason to keep it

The GDPR also assures:

  • That companies must obtain your consent to process your data
  • That automated algorithms which make decisions about you based on your data can be contested, and reviewed by a person
  • Better protection of children online
  • In the case of lost or stolen data, the company must promptly (within 72 hours) inform you and the Data Protection Authority (DPA) of your country. Contact information of the national DPAs is available on the European Commission website (http://ec.europa.eu/justice/article-29/structure/data-protection-authorities/index_en.htm).

3. Data we collect

When you register on our website or purchase a subscription, we collect your name and email address and other billing information. This allows us to process your registration, fulfill your order and send you service messages concerning your subscription.

From time to time, we may ask you to provide other contact details, such as phone number or address, to carry out surveys. You will always be given the option to withhold these contact details at the time you take the survey.

We do not track or collect sensitive data such as your health, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity, trade union membership, criminal record, or political opinion or affiliation.

Our service is not directed to minors. In order to purchase a subscription for The C-Drone Review you must be at least 16 years old. Editions CDR does not knowingly process personal information from children under 16. More information about our age restrictions can be found in our terms and conditions.

4. Cookies and similar technologies

A cookie is a small text file which is placed on your device with your permission when you visit our website. A pixel tag, or clear GIF, is a tiny invisible image that typically works with cookies to track page visits. We use information from cookies for identifying returning users, registrants and subscribers, in particular to facilitate connection without retyping your login. Cookies, pixels and similar software help us to understand how you arrive on our website, the type of device you use, how you use our website and navigate around it, and how you interact with our e-mail, with the goal of improving our service. We may also obtain some information from Google Analytics and Facebook or other social media providers. In the case of social media information, the data provided is limited to your email address and only that data which you have previously agreed with the social media provider they can share.

Note that you can reject or delete cookies using your browser or device settings, but in some cases doing so may affect your ability to use our service. For more information about how to inspect, block and delete cookies, please visit https://www.aboutcookies.org.

5. How we use data about you

We will use your data:

  • To manage the website (including your account).
  • To process orders and provide our service, to respond to your requests and queries, and to contact you with service information about your account, such as the expiration date.
  • To send you e-mail alerts, if your subscription permits it and if you have consented to receive them.
  • To provide you with a temporary free trial (if available).
  • To provide advanced website features to you and others.
  • To conduct surveys with you (if you have consented to this purpose which is different from service information).

For any of the uses of your data described above that require your prior express consent, note that you may withdraw your consent at any time by contacting us.

6. Sharing your information with third parties

Editions CDR will not sell your personal data to a third party, or share your data with a third party for marketing purposes.

We may share your data with service providers who perform functions on our behalf, such as companies or individuals that analyze data, provide customer service, or provide marketing, survey, or promotional assistance. However, the data will be shared only to the extent third parties need such information to perform their functions. You may withhold your permission to receive marketing materials at any time.

For payment purposes, we transmit necessary data to payment processors such as PayPal and payment transfer agents. We do not keep a record of your credit or debit card details in our systems. Our payment processors do not decide what is done with your data and only process it on our behalf. We only use providers that provide adequate protection for your information at all times. These third parties may be located outside the European Union; in the case of the United States of America, these parties adhere to the EU-US Privacy Shield (https://www.privacyshield.gov/welcome).

We may disclose your personal data in order to comply with any legal obligation, subject to French and European Union law. This includes disclosing information to organisations for the purposes of fraud protection, credit risk reduction, or the order of a court or regulator.

7. Sale of the business

In the event that we undergo reorganisation, or participate in a merger, acquisition, assignment, or joint venture, or are sold to a third party, personal data we hold about you may be transferred to that entity or third party. However, in this case you will continue to retain the right to access, correct, and delete your data under the GDPR.

8. How we protect your data

In accordance with the GDPR, we follow strict security procedures in the storage and disclosure of data which you have given us, to prevent unauthorised access to, and loss, misuse or alteration of your personal data. These include firewalls, encryption, the SSL/TLS protocol, virus-checking procedures, and regular secure backups. Our hosting provider in France, Gandi, is an established provider with good security practices. Note that we do not store bank card information, which is transmitted to our transfer agents such as PayPal and banks.

We ask you to take precautions to protect against unauthorized access to your account credentials and computers, tablets, smartphones or other devices. Please be aware that no security system is impenetrable. In the event of a security breach, we will promptly notify you (within 72 hours) and the Data Protection Authority (DPA) of your country.

9. How long we hold your data

Some of the data you provide to us will be necessary to verify your identity or payment details when signing in to use an account, or when you are using an online checkout. We will keep this information for as long as you remain a registered user of any of our sites and for so long as reasonably necessary. If your account is inactive for more than five years since you last paid for the service, we reserve the right to delete any information you have provided to us. In that case we will send an email to the address attached to your account before deleting the data.

10. Updates to the privacy policy

We may update this policy at any time without advance notice, in particular if we add new services, if we adapt to new technologies, or if the GDPR is modified in future. However, we do not expect to make substantial changes to this policy. We will tell you that we have updated the policy by emailing you at the email address you have provided to us and/or by posting an announcement on the website. By continuing to use the website after we have emailed you and/or posted a notice informing you of an update, you indicate your acceptance of the changes to this policy.

We will also keep prior versions of this privacy policy available for your review on this page.
