How is your personal data collected, stored and processed by Ippon as data controller?


Ippon Technologies is aware of the need to ensure the confidentiality of personal data and has therefore formalised its commitment to the protection of personal data by adopting this privacy policy (hereinafter the « Policy »).

This Privacy Policy applies to all personal data processed by Ippon, when acting as a data controller, and when acting as a data processor, if any.

This Policy explains how we use such data, with whom we may share it, what rights the data owners have and what steps we take to ensure its confidentiality and security.

Some of the links on our websites and applications may direct you to non-Ippon websites. These websites have their own privacy or data protection policies or guidelines, which may differ significantly from this Policy. It is your responsibility to read and understand those policies and, if applicable, to accept/reject the terms and conditions of those policies.

We may also include on our websites and applications computer applications from third parties, which allow you to share content with other people or to let these other people know your consultation or your opinion concerning a content of our websites and/or applications. This is notably the case of the « Share » and « Like » buttons from social networks such as « Facebook », « Twitter », LinkedIn », etc. The social network providing such an application button is likely to identify you thanks to this button, even if you did not use this button when consulting our websites and applications. Indeed, this type of application button may allow the social network concerned to track your browsing on our websites and applications, simply because your account with the social network concerned was activated on your terminal (open session) during your browsing on our websites and applications.

We have no control over the process used by social networks to collect information about your browsing on our websites and applications and associated with the personal data they hold. We invite you to consult the privacy protection policies of these social networks in order to learn about the purposes of use, including advertising, of the browsing information they may collect through these application buttons. These protection policies should allow you to exercise your choices and rights with these social networks, in particular by setting up your accounts for each of these networks.
