3. RESPECTING PRIVACY AND PROTECTING YOUR DATA
You can use the Service and visit the Website without communicating Data. The Data are not subject to automatic processing except in the conditions described below. Please note that if you call us, contact us, or use our contact forms, your information and the subject of your message as well as any other Data you may choose to communicate to us will be used to process and monitor your requests.

3.1. What type of information do we collect?
The IT systems and software procedures used by the Service collect certain data as part of their normal functions; while the reason for collecting this data is not to identify you, they may nonetheless make it possible to identify you when cross-referenced with data from third parties. We process your IP address and/or the domain names of your computer, the URI (uniform resource identifier), the addresses of the requested resources, the times of these requests, the method used to submit a given request to the server, the returned file size, a numeric code relating to the server’s response (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters concerning your operating system and IT environment. These data are used only for extracting anonymous statistical information about use of the Service and to check that it is functioning properly; the data are erased immediately after processing. If you freely choose to post a photo online that reveals or relates to your medical situation, health, or other sensitive personal information, we interpret you posting that photo as express consent on your part for that information to be processed by us and, where applicable, by those third parties that we authorise to do so.

3.2. Who has access to your information?
As concerns our databases, all precautions have been taken to store your information in a secure environment and avoid accidentally or illegally destroying, or accidentally losing, damaging, or communicating that information, and to prevent unauthorised access to that information. Only a limited number of employees have access to your Data, and only for authorised uses, subject to exceptions laid out in applicable laws. The Data that you communicate may also be consulted by third parties that we have authorised, if you have been informed in advance and have consented to it or if you do not express any opposition. We only communicate information when it is necessary to allow a third party to provide their services as part of their contractual obligations to us. We may communicate your information to the appropriate public authorities to fulfil our duties under applicable laws and regulations.

3.3. Your rights
In accordance with the Information and Liberties law of 6 January 1978, you may have access to information concerning you to request that said information be corrected or erased, or to prohibit or limit our use of that information; to do so, contact Volvic Customer Services using the contact information in Article 5 below.
