We implement suitable security strategies at both technological and organizational levels to protect personal data from potential tampering, partial or total loss, and unauthorized access by third parties.

This method guarantees the security of sensitive data transmission, rendering it unreadable to third parties.

To ensure the security of data entered into the forms on our website, we use Google's reCaptcha service. This service verifies that the user is real, preventing the abuse of site functions by spam robots. When using reCaptcha, the user's IP address (anonymized) is shared with Google.
Social Network Links:
The links to social media on our site allow access to the features of these platforms. To use these features, it's necessary to be logged into your social media account. When clicking on a link to a social network, the user's browser directly connects to the social network's server. This allows the social network to know that the user has visited our site and clicked on the link. If the user is logged into their social media account at the time of clicking, the content of our web pages can be linked to the user's profile on the social network. This means that the social network can associate the visit to our site with the user's profile. To prevent this, you can log out of your social media account before clicking on the link. However, if you access the social network after clicking on the link, the association will still be made.
Data Retention Period
We retain your data for as long as it is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which they were collected and as long as there is a legitimate interest in retaining them. Please note that some data must be stored by us for a specified period as required by law. These data must therefore remain stored by us until the end of this period and will only be used to comply with these legal requirements.
You have the right to request rectification, blocking, or erasure of personal data stored during your visits to our website. You can also object to the dissemination of certain personal data. However, data that are necessary for unfinished tasks or to assert rights and claims, as well as those that we are required to retain in accordance with legal provisions, cannot be deleted.
