Data processing




*General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR): It is a European regulatory text that establishes rules regarding the protection of individuals with regard to the processing of personal data and rules on the free movement of such data. It entered into force on May 25, 2018.

The GDPR protects the fundamental rights and freedoms of individuals, particularly their right to the protection of personal data.

*Personal data: It refers to "any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person."

A person can be identified:

Directly (e.g., name, first name);

Indirectly (e.g., through an identifier (customer number), a telephone number, biometric data, several specific elements related to their physical, physiological, genetic, psychological, economic, cultural, or social identity, as well as their voice or image).

The identification of a natural person can be carried out:

Based on a single piece of data (e.g., social security number, DNA);

Based on the cross-referencing of a set of data (e.g., a woman living at a certain address, born on a specific day, subscribed to a particular magazine, and being a member of a certain association).

*Processing of personal data: It refers to an operation or set of operations carried out on personal data, regardless of the method used (collection, recording, organization, storage, adaptation, alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, communication by transmission, dissemination, or any other form of making available, alignment).

Processing of personal data is not necessarily computerized: paper files are also covered and must be protected under the same conditions.

Processing of data must have a purpose, an objective, which means that you cannot collect or process personal data simply on the off chance that it might be useful to you someday. Each processing of data must have a purpose, which must be legal and legitimate in relation to your professional activity.

THE VENDOM COMPANY must allow you to access your personal data. To do so:

If necessary, it may verify the identity of the person making the request (principle: no identification document required unless there is reasonable doubt).

If necessary, it may inquire about the specific data the request pertains to.

It must verify that the request does not concern a third party (for example, it is not possible to request access to data regarding one's spouse; an employee of a company cannot obtain data relating to a colleague).

It must respond to your request within the following timeframes:

Maximum of 1 month for a simple request.

Maximum of 3 months for a complex request (e.g., if a person requests a copy of all their data).

In certain cases, THE VENDOM COMPANY may refuse to respond to access requests, but it must justify this decision.

THE VENDOM COMPANY is not obligated to respond to access requests if:

They are manifestly unfounded or excessive, particularly due to their repetitive nature (e.g., multiple and frequent requests for a copy already provided).

The data is no longer retained/has been erased, in which case access is not possible (e.g., recordings made by a video surveillance system are typically retained for a maximum of 30 days and are destroyed at the end of this period).
