The law firm Tirard Naudin is concerned about protecting the privacy and data of their contacts (users of their websites and computing platforms, contacts established in the context of professional meetings, cases, missions, partnerships, services, applications, etc.). Thus, Tirard Naudin ensures that they adopt and comply with a data processing policy in accordance with current regulations. It is on this basis that Tirard Naudin respects the applicable European law on the protection of Personal Data, and, in particular, the European General Regulation on the Protection of Personal Data n°2016/679 of April 27th, 2016 (the “RGPD / GDPR”), as well as all the rules of national law adopted in application thereof, as a subsidiary matter, and which may apply according to the case. The purpose of this Data Protection Policy (the “Policy”) is to provide clear, simple and complete information to the data subjects (“you” or “your”) on the way in which Tirard Naudin, in its capacity as data controller, collects and uses your Personal Data (“the Personal Data”) and on the means at your disposal to control this use and to exercise your rights.
1. Definition of a Personal Data
"Personal Data" shall mean any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. An identifiable person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identification number or to one or more factors specific to his physical, physiological, mental, economic, cultural or social identity. The Personal Data that Tirard Naudin has about you concern the following categories:
- Identification data;

Of these, some may be considered sensitive and receive special attention from the law firm.
1. The collection of your Personal Data

Declarative Personal Data are those that you provide via forms, whether they are dematerialized on websites, in paper format or in response to questions asked you by lawyers or members of the company. Tirard Naudin takes into account the principles of data minimization, data protection from their conception onward and data protection by default. Consequently relevant, adequate and limited information necessary for the purposes for which it is processed is collected.
2 The legal basis for processing your Personal Data
Your Personal Data are processed by Tirard Naudin in the cases permitted by applicable regulations, and in particular under the following conditions: when you have given free, specific, informed and unequivocal consent to the processing of your Personal Data; when this is necessary for the execution of a contract, or pre-contractual measures taken at your request (e.g. application, handling of a dossier, etc.); to comply with legal or regulatory obligations of Tirard Naudin (e.g.: fight against fraud); when the legitimate interests of Tirard Naudin may be such as to justify processing by the lawfirm (e.g. computer security measures). Information in accordance with the applicable law is provided in each case. It is specified here that for minors under 18 years of age, such consent must be given or authorized by the holder of parental responsibility. If the latter discovers that Personal Data of the minor concerned has been entrusted to Tirard Naudin without their consent, they may ask Tirard Naudin to delete such Personal Data by following the procedure described in point 8.2. of this Policy.

Depending on the case, your Personal Data may be used for the purpose of: dialogue with you within the framework of cases, missions, partnerships, etc.; participation in satisfaction surveys, analyses and statistics in order to improve our products and services as well as the knowledge of our customers and prospects; requesting, obtaining or receiving information on Tirard Naudin; subscribing and receiving thematic information (legal training, documentation, invitations, activity reports, etc.); processing your application for a position; improving your customer experience. Tirard Naudin may also use your Personal Data for administrative purposes or for any other purpose imposed by current legislation.

Your Personal Data being confidential, only persons duly authorized by Tirard Naudin can access your Personal Data, apart from their possible transmission to the bodies in charge of a control or inspection in accordance with the applicable regulations. All persons who have access to your Personal Data are bound by an obligation of confidentiality. These persons include the staff (lawyers, administrative staff) authorized within the company. Our service providers may also be required to process Personal Data strictly necessary for the performance of the services we entrust them with (mission, electronic and postal dissemination, logistics and catering, etc.). In the event of recourse to service providers located outside the European Union, Tirard Naudin undertakes to verify that appropriate measures have been put in place to ensure that your Personal Data benefit from an adequate level of protection (in particular through standard contractual clauses of the European Commission, the Internal Company Rules or the Data Protection Shield set up between the European Union and the United States).
2. Protection of your Personal Data
Tirard Naudin takes care to protect and secure your Personal Data in order to ensure their confidentiality and prevent their being distorted, damaged, destroyed or disclosed to unauthorised third parties. When disclosure of data to third parties is necessary and authorized, Tirard Naudin ensures that these third parties guarantee the same level of data protection as that offered to them by Tirard Naudin, and requires contractual guarantees so that the data are exclusively processed for the purposes you have previously accepted, and with the required confidentiality and security. Tirard Naudin implements technical and organizational measures to ensure that Personal Data are kept securely for the duration necessary for the exercise of the purposes pursued in accordance with applicable law. In accordance with applicable European regulations and in the event of a proven breach of Personal Data likely to create a high risk for the rights and freedoms of the persons concerned, Tirard Naudin undertakes to communicate this breach to the competent supervisory authority and, where required by the said regulations, to the persons concerned (individually or generally as the case may be). 3. Conservation period of your Personal Data Tirard Naudin keeps your Personal Data for the time necessary to fulfil the purposes pursued, respecting the legal possibilities of archiving, obligations to keep certain data, and/or anonymization. In particular, we apply the following retention periods for these few broad categories of Personal Data: Personal Data of customers/prospects/business partners: as long as the user is active and, at the latest, 3 years after the last contact with the user; Personal Data of candidates (recruitment): time needed to process the application and, in case of a negative outcome, 3 years after the last contact (unless the candidate agrees to a longer period).
