12. PERSONALLY IDENTIFIABLE INFORMATION ________________________________________

ELEBADECOR is mindful of protecting the personal information disclosed by Customers (the “Personal Information”). In this context, ELEBADECOR undertakes to observe confidentiality in respect of the Personal Information transmitted. This article explains (i) how Customers’ Personal Information is used; (ii) how each Customer is able to correct, change or delete the Personal Information which ELEBADECOR is holding on him/her; (iii) to whom ELEBADECOR is able to disclose the same; and (iv) the security measures put in place by ELEBADECOR with a view to protecting the confidentiality of the Personal Information.

12.1. - Ultimate purpose of collecting the data
The Personal Information is processed by ELEBADECOR for managing Customer profiles, marketing and statistical survey, Product quality monitoring, customer relations management and sales canvassing, with the aim of supplying Customers with the best adapted Products.

12.2. - Access to the Personal Information
The Personal Information is accessible at any time in the “My Account” section, through the Customer’s email, login and password. In accordance with Law no. 78-17 of 6 January 1978 on data protection and privacy amended by Law no. 2004-801 of 6 August 2004, (the “Data-processing and Civil Liberties Law”), the Customer has the right of access, correction, removal and objection relating to the Personal Information concerning him.

ELEBADECOR may be required to disclose Customers’ Personal Information to legally empowered organisations or authorities, to the extent that such disclosure is required or authorised by the law, or where ELEBADECOR judges it necessary or appropriate to satisfy the laws and other applicable texts or to protect or defend its rights or those of its employees, customers or any other person. ELEBADECOR may transmit Customers’ Personal Information to third parties in case of assignment, transfer of assets, reorganisation or liquidation.

When the Customer creates an account, he chooses an email address and a password which he will be asked for each time he wants to log on.

The Customer should, moreover, not forget to log out of his profile and close the window on his browser at the end of his session, particularly when using a computer shared with others for accessing the Internet. In this way, the Customer will avoid other users accessing his Personal Information. In particular, the Client is solely responsible for ensuring his password is kept confidential. He alone is liable for any consequences that might ensure from any use by third parties who may have had knowledge thereof.
