GDPR Policy

IP / IT & Data Protection

1. Preamble

The Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data, otherwise known as the General Data Protection Regulation (hereinafter “GDPR”) lays down the legal framework applicable to the processing of personal data.

The GDPR strengthens the rights and obligations of the controllers, processors, data subjects and recipients of data.

As far as our activity is concerned, we are required to process personal data. For a good understanding of this Policy, the parties acknowledge that:

  • the “controller” is Oneida Associés;
  • “processor” means any natural or legal person who processes personal data under the instructions and authority and on behalf of Oneida Associés;
  • “data subjects” refers to the clients and / or contacts of Oneida Associés;
  • “recipients” refers to natural or legal persons who receive personal data from Oneida Associés. Recipients of data can therefore be employees of Oneida Associés as well as external organizations (partners, exhibitors, banks, stakeholders, etc.).

Article 12 of the GDPR requires that data subjects be informed of their rights in a concise, transparent, understandable and easily accessible way.

2. Subject matter

The purpose of this Policy is to comply with the obligation of information that Oneida Associés shall implement pursuant to Article 12 of the GDPR and to formalize the rights and obligations of its clients and contacts with regard to the processing of their personal data.

3. Scope

This Policy applies when implementing any processing of personal data relating to clients and contacts of Oneida Associés.

Oneida Associés shall ensure that data is processed in the context of a specific internal governance. However, this Policy only deals with the processing for which Oneida Associés is a controller and therefore does not apply to processing that is not created or operated beyond the governance rules set by Oneida Associés (“wild treatment” or “shadow IT”).

Processing of personal data may be handled directly by Oneida Associés or through a processor specifically designated by Oneida Associés.

This Policy remains independent from any other document that may apply in the contractual relationship between Oneida Associés and its clients or contacts.

4. General principles & data collection

No processing shall be implemented within Oneida Associés concerning clients and contacts data if it does not relate to personal data collected by or for our services or processed in connection with our services and if does not meet the general principles of the GDPR.

Common cases of Oneida Associés are as follows:
