BavAR[t] privacy policy

AR[t] Studio, the official editor of the BavAR[t] application is really concerned about the protection of the personal data and privacy of its users. This Privacy Policy below describes how AR[t] Studio collects and processes data about you in connection with your use of the BavAR[t] application.

En français dans le texte!

1. What is personal data?

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (the "data subject").

In the context of the BavAR[t] application, the data subjects are the users of the platform.

The personal data concerned by this Privacy Policy are therefore all data relating to these users, insofar as they are identified or identifiable, for example by means of their user account identifier.

In Europe, the processing of personal data is subject to a specific legal and regulatory framework, constituted for France essentially by the European General Data Protection Regulation, known as "GDPR" and the law known as "Informatique et Libertés" of January 6, 1978. BavAR[t] complies with all these European regulations.

Underage children: The GDPR specifies that persons under 15 years of age are considered as underage for the purpose of collecting personal data. Minors must have the consent of a legal representative for their data to be collected, processed and used.

2. What personal data is collected, for what purposes, and on what legal basis?

AR[t] Studio collects personal data about its users in the following cases, for the following purposes:

For those, among the treatments listed in article 2 above, having for legal basis the consent of the user or their necessity for the execution of a contract, the user also has the right to the portability of his personal data.

This right differs from the right of access to personal data in that (i) it concerns only the data provided by the user to AR[t] Studio and (ii) it allows the user to obtain this data in a structured and machine-readable format.

The right to the portability of the personal data of the user opens in addition the possibility that they are transmitted to another controller, with the choice of the user, provided that it is technically possible.

6.3 Right of Rectification

The user can ask to correct his personal data if they are inaccurate, incomplete or obsolete. He can also correct his data directly on his account.

6.4 Right to Deletion

The user may request that his/her personal data be deleted in the following cases:

  • • if his/her personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or processed;
  • • if the user has withdrawn his/her consent to the processing of his/her personal data, provided that his prior consent was the legal basis for their collection and processing and that there is no other legal basis for them;
  • • if the user has objected to the collection or processing of his/her personal data in accordance with Article 6.5 below;
  • • the processing of the user's personal data is unlawful;
  • • the user's personal data must be deleted in order for AR[t] Studio to comply with a legal obligation; or
  • • if the user was an underage child at the time of the collection of his personal data. For this last case of figure and provided that the user is minor at the time of the request, the holders of the exercise of the parental authority of the user can also formulate a request for suppression of his personal data near AR[t] Studio.

If the data concerned has been communicated to third parties, AR[t] Studio will inform these third parties of the user's request, as far as possible.

6.5 Right of Opposition

Subject to a legitimate justification relating to the particularity of his or her situation, the user may object to any processing of his or her personal data when his or her personal data are processed on the basis of the necessity of such processing for the performance of a task of public interest or the pursuit of the legitimate interest of AR[t] Studio or of a third party.

The user may also object, without any obligation to give reasons, to the processing of his or her personal data when this is done for the purpose of prospecting.

6.6 Right to Restrict Processing

The user can ask for the limitation of the treatment of his personal data in the following cases:

  • • in the event that he disputes the accuracy of his personal data, and this for the time necessary for AR[t] Studio to verify it;
  • • if the treatment of its personal data is illicit and that the user wishes to limit it rather than to ask for the suppression of these last ones;
  • • if the user wishes that AR[t] Studio preserves his personal data when those are necessary for the establishment, the exercise or the defense of his rights in justice; or
  • • if the user opposed the treatment of his personal data, during the period during which AR[t] Studio checks if it does not have other overriding legitimate reasons to continue their treatment.

AR[t] Studio will then cease to process the data concerned and will keep them for the appropriate period.

6.7 Right to define data disposition directives after death

The user can give to AR[t] Studio directives concerning the modalities of conservation, deletion and communication of his personal data to intervene after his death.
