This section informs you about the general principles applicable to all the Processing covered by this Policy. Section II details, for each Processing, the specific conditions and modalities of implementation of the Processing.

A. MINIMIZATION OF DATA COLLECTED
Each form on the site limits the collection of Personal Data to what is strictly necessary and indicates the purpose(s) for which the Data is collected and the Recipient(s) of the Data.
The Data required to manage your request are indicated by an asterisk on each form. If you do not fill in these mandatory fields, ARCH.DESIGN will not be able to respond to your requests and/or provide you with the requested services. The other information is optional and allows us to better manage your request and improve our communications and services to you.

B. SHARING YOUR DATA WITH THIRD PARTIES AND TRANSFERRING YOUR DATA OUTSIDE THE EUROPEAN UNION
Each Processing section details the internal Recipients who may access and process the Data concerned. The Data may be transmitted to technical service providers chosen for their expertise and reliability who act on our behalf and according to our instructions (IT subcontractor, host of our servers, etc.).
We only allow these service providers to use your Personal Information to the extent necessary to perform services on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements and we strive to ensure that your Personal Information is protected at all times.
ARCH.DESIGN may also disclose your Data to Third Parties where such disclosure is required by law, regulation or court order, or where such disclosure is necessary for the protection and defense of our rights.
All such Third Parties may come from countries within or outside the European Union (“EU”), including countries that do not offer the same level of data protection as your country of residence. In such a case and to the extent required by applicable law, we will:
– either obtain your express and unequivocal Consent to share your Personal Data with such Third Parties ;
– enter into Data Transfer Agreements that comply at least with the standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission; or
– ensure that such Third Parties located in the United States are companies that have joined the EU-U.S. Privacy Shield and registered as such with the U.S. government.

C. SECURITY OF YOUR DATA
ARCH.DESIGN is committed to protecting your Personal Data against loss, destruction, alteration, unauthorized access or disclosure. To this end, ARCH.DESIGN implements appropriate technical and organizational measures, in light of the nature of the Data and the risks involved in Processing it, to preserve the security and confidentiality of your Personal Data and, in particular, to prevent it from being distorted, damaged, or accessed by unauthorized Third Parties.
These measures may include, but are not limited to, practices such as limited access to the Data by personnel of departments authorized to access it by virtue of their duties, contractual guarantees in the event of the use of an external service provider, privacy impact assessments, regular reviews of our privacy practices and policies and/or physical and/or logical security measures (secure access, authentication process, backups, anti-virus software, firewalls, etc.).

D. DATA CONCERNING MINORS
ARCH.DESIGN services and events are not intended for minors. Therefore, we do not knowingly collect or process Personal Data about minors. In the event that we become aware of the collection of Personal Data from minors without the prior consent of the holder of parental responsibility, we will take appropriate steps to delete such Personal Data from our servers and/or those of our service providers.
