5. Privacy and personal data

In light of the General Data Protection Regulation no. 2016/679 (hereinafter called the “GDPR”) in force in France since 25 May 2018 as a modification to law no. 78-17 of 6 January 1978 (French Data Protection and Freedom of Information Act), EKIBIO is considered to be responsible for its data processing. To that end, EKIBIO promises to fulfill certain obligations in order to provide the best possible guarantee of fundamental liberties relating to the protection of personal data.

Beyond the processing of data for any contractual needs, legal obligations and/or legitimate interests, EKIBIO will seek the express and enlightened consent of the User every time the need to handle personal data arises.

The User’s express and enlightened consent may be sought in order to allow access to certain services requiring such data to be processed. In such cases, the User gives his/her consent for each service by declaring that he/she fully understands the clauses of the Legal Notice and accepts the purpose for which his/her personal data are to be processed. In the event that the User does not give his/her consent, EKIBIO will be obliged to refuse access by the User to the service in question and/or to refrain from processing the related data.

Personal data may also be processed for marketing purposes, by EKIBIO or its affiliated subsidiaries or commercial partners, but only if the User has expressly consented to such processing. If EKIBIO intends to send another party’s data to a country in the European Union or to an international organisation, it must inform such party and seek its consent once again. If the organising Company intends to use such data for any other purpose than those described above, then it must inform the concerned party and seek its consent once again. However, EKIBIO reserves the right to send such data to any administrative bodies or legal authorities who so request.

Such data is held by EKIBIO and, if you have expressly given your consent, by its affiliated companies and commercial partners.

Collected data are stored until the purpose for their processing is fulfilled. Once processed, such data is stored for the duration required in the scope of legal obligations relating to data storage, but also in line with legitimate interests. EKIBIO undertakes to delete the data at the end of that storage period.

EKIBIO promises to deploy all the technical and organisational means necessary to ensure that such personal data is protected and its confidentiality ensured during its handling and storage, in accordance with the provisions set out in the GDPR. All personal data collected via this Site are handled under the strictest conditions of confidentiality.

Users benefit from the following rights:

  • Right to access their data;
  • Right to modify their data;
  • Right to have their data deleted once the purpose of their handling is fulfilled;
  • Right to restrict the handling of their data;
  • Right to oppose the use of their data for marketing purposes;
  • Right to define guidelines relating to the storage of their data;
  • Right to have their data transferred;
  • Right to oppose the handling of their data;
  • Right to have their personal data deleted/sent to a third party after their death.

To exercise the above rights, please send your request with a proof of identity to the organising Company at the following email address: or at the following postal address:

Zone Artisanale La Boissonnette - 07340 PEAUGRES - France

Users are informed of their right to withdraw their consent at any time. Furthermore, the withdrawal of consent shall not compromise the licit nature of the processing based on the consent given before such withdrawal.

In the event that EKIBIO has good reasons to doubt the identity of the natural person or physical entity making the request to exercise the above rights, it may request the additional information required to confirm such identity. To that end, the User vouches for the veracity of the information provided as personal data to EKIBIO.

The User may file a claim with the Commission National de l’Informatique et des Libertés (CNIL - French information commissioner’s office) whenever it deems necessary.
