Rights you have

Right to erasure (right to be forgotten)

Right to obtain the deletion of your Personal Data in the cases provided for by the GDPR (Article 17), in particular:

When the data we process is no longer necessary for us; when you object to commercial prospecting and request deletion in addition to the cessation of processing; when the processing is unlawful.

Right to object

This right applies where we process your data in order to pursue one of our legitimate interests, such as advertising on your social networking pages. If you request to object, we will analyse the reasons for your particular situation and investigate whether we have a legitimate and compelling reason to continue processing your data. If not, we will stop the processing concerned.

Right to object to commercial prospecting

If you object to commercial prospecting, we will simply stop processing the Data concerned.

Withdrawal of consent

Where the processing of your Personal Data is based on your consent, the withdrawal of your consent prevents us from continuing to process the data in question.

Right to rectification and right to limitation

You may request that any Personal Information that you believe to be inaccurate or obsolete be updated or corrected.

You may also request that processing be suspended, with the exception of the retention of Personal Data, where:

  • you dispute the accuracy of the data (this limitation lasts for the time it takes for us to check for any inaccuracy);

  • the processing is unlawful and you would prefer to have the processing restricted rather than the data erased;

  • we no longer need the data but you consider that they are still necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims;

  • you have made a request to object due to your particular situation and this limitation is obtained during the time it takes to check the balance of interests between our legitimate interests and your rights and freedoms.

Where processing has been restricted, your Data may only be processed with your consent or for the exercise, establishment and defence of legal claims.


Right to portability

You have the right to receive the Personal Data you have directly provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format.

  • You are also informed that, in the absence of transmission to Télécom Paris of specific directives on the fate of your Personal Data, your heirs may exercise, after your death, the rights relating to the conservation, deletion and communication of your Personal Data insofar as this is necessary for the organisation and settlement of your estate and for Télécom Paris to take account of your death.
