11. Transfers of your Data

Certain treatments of Personal Data lead to Transfers outside the European Union, IPAG favours Transfers to countries that ensure an adequate level of data protection. Otherwise, Transfers are subject to appropriate safeguards to ensure the security of Personal Data and to allow you to exercise your rights and have effective remedies.

The latter may be based on an adequacy decision of the European Commission on the level of data protection of a country. 

In the absence of an adequacy decision, Transfers are governed by the conclusion between the parties to the Transfer of standard data protection clauses approved by the European Commission.

12. The periods for which we retain your Data

IPAG ensures that Personal Data is kept in a form that allows the identification of Data Subjects only for as long as necessary for the purposes for which it is processed or to comply with legal or regulatory requirements.

The retention periods we apply to Personal Data are proportionate to the purposes for which they were collected.

Specifically, we organize our data retention policy as follows:



Retention period

Recruitment management

The data is kept for two years from the last contact with the unsuccessful applicant.

Management of general accounting

The data is kept for the duration of the accounting year plus any legal requirements.

Management of the video surveillance and video protection system

Images are kept for 30 days. In case of disciplinary or criminal proceedings, the images are kept for the duration of the proceedings.


13. The security of Personal Data

IPAG attaches particular importance to the security of Personal Data.

It has put in place technical and organisational measures adapted to the degree of sensitivity of the Personal Data, in order to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of the latter and to protect them against any malicious intrusion, any loss, alteration or disclosure to unauthorised third parties.

Nevertheless, the security and confidentiality of Personal Data depend on the good practices of each individual, and the Data Subject is therefore invited to remain vigilant on this issue.

14. Subcontracting

Whenever IPAG resorts to a service provider, it only communicates Personal Data to the latter after receiving a commitment and guarantee on its ability to meet these security and confidentiality requirements.

We conclude contracts with our subcontractors in compliance with our legal and regulatory obligations, defining precisely the terms and conditions for the Processing of Personal Data by the latter, in accordance with the Regulation.

16. Your rightsIPAG is particularly concerned about respecting the rights granted to you in the context of the Data Processing it implements, in order to guarantee you fair and transparent Processing, taking into account the particular circumstances and context in which your Personal Data are processed.

16.1 Your access rights

In this respect, you have the right to obtain confirmation as to whether or not your Personal Data is being processed and where it is, you have the right to request a copy of your Data and information about:

  • The purposes of the Processing ;
  • The categories of Personal Data concerned;
  • The recipients or categories of recipients as well as, where applicable if such communication is to be made, the international organisations to which the Personal Data has been or will be communicated, in particular recipients who are established in third countries;
  • Whenever possible, the envisaged duration of storage of the Personal Data or, when this is not possible, the criteria used to determine this duration;
  • The existence of the right to ask the Controller to rectify or erase your Personal Data, the right to request a limitation of the Processing of your Personal Data, the right to object to the Processing;
  • The right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
  • Information about the source of the Data when it is not collected directly from you;
  • The existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, and in the latter case, relevant information about the underlying logic and the significance and intended consequences of such Processing for the Data Subjects.

16.2 Your right to rectify your Data

You can ask us to correct or complete your Personal Data if it is inaccurate, incomplete, ambiguous and/or out of date.

16.3 Your right to erase your Data

You may request the removal of your Personal Data in the cases provided for by the Regulation.

Your attention is drawn to the fact that the right to delete Data is not a general right and that it can only be granted if one of the reasons provided for in the applicable Regulation is present.

16.4 Your right to limit Data Processing

You may request the restriction of the Processing of your Personal Data in the cases provided for by the Regulation.

16.5 Your right to object to Data Processing

You are entitled to refuse at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to a Processing of your Personal Data where the legal basis is the legitimate interest pursued by the Controller.

If you exercise such a right to object, we will ensure that we no longer process your Personal Data in connection with the relevant Processing unless we can demonstrate that we have compelling legitimate grounds for continuing such Processing. These grounds must be overriding your interests and rights and freedoms, or the Processing must be justified for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

You have the right to the transfer of your Personal Data. We would like to draw your attention to the fact that this is not a general right. Indeed, not all Data from all Processing are portable and this right only concerns automated Processing to the exclusion of manual or paper Processing.

This right is limited to Processing whose legal basis is your consent or the performance of pre-contractual measures or a contract.

This right does not include derived or inferred data, which are Personal Data created by IPAG.

16.7 Your right to withdraw consent

Where the Data Processing we carry out is based on your consent, you may withdraw it at any time. We will then stop processing your Personal Data without affecting the previous operations to which you have consented.

You have the possibility of defining particular directives relating to the conservation, the erasure and the communication of your Personal Data after your death according to the methods defined hereafter. These particular directives will only concern the Processing implemented by us and will be limited to this perimeter.
