If a User does not wish to provide said data, they are informed that BIRDWELL INTERNATIONAL will not be able to contact them.

The User undertakes to provide only Data that are sincere, accurate, complete and up to date, and not to appropriate someone else’s data.

  1. FOR HOW LONG DOES BIRDWELL INTERNATIONAL RETAIN THE DATA COLLECTED?

BIRDWELL INTERNATIONAL informs the User that it shall hold their Data for no longer than is strictly necessary in relation to the purpose(s) for which the information was processed, which means:

  • Regarding Data collected during Site browsing: “cookies” are retained for no more than thirteen (13) months from the date they were placed on the User’s computer (see detail further down);
  • Regarding Data collected following the contact request via the designated form: Data are retained for three (3) years from the date of the last prompt to the User that goes unanswered;
  1. WHO RECEIVES THE COLLECTED DATA?

The collected Data are sent to the following: BIRDWELL INTERNATIONAL, its service providers and its subcontractors, in order to manage the Site and ensure that it works properly;

The Data collected through requests via the Site contact form are intended for BIRDWELL INTERNATIONAL, its partners involved in managing products and/or services, and its service providers and subcontractors.

BIRDWELL INTERNATIONAL pledges not to communicate the collected Data to any third party unless it has received the User’s consent, notwithstanding cases where a request is issued by a State-level authority or body, in compliance with the Regulation in force. In all events, BIRDWELL INTERNATIONAL has ensured that its service providers and subcontractors are in compliance with the Regulation.

BIRDWELL INTERNATIONAL notifies the User that the Data collected under the conditions defined herein shall be transferred out of the European Union, as per the conditions stipulated by its subcontractor HubSpot:

The GDPR permits the transfer of personal data outside the EU under certain conditions. The EU-US Privacy Shield of data protection remains a valid method of ensuring sufficient guarantees for the transfer of personal data from the European Union to the USA. The EU’s standard clauses provide another valid method for transferring personal data legally. For clients in the EU/EEE, HubSpot proposes data processing conditions that incorporate the standard clauses. HubSpot has also received certification of compliance with the principles of the Privacy Shield framework.

Important notice about data processing in connection with Google Analytics

This website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Ireland Limited. If the responsible body for the data processing that occurs via this website has their basis outside of the European Economic area and Switzerland, then the associated Google Analytics data processing is carried out by Google LLC (registered in the United States of America). Google Ireland Limited and Google LLC will hereinafter be referred to as “Google”.

Google Analytics uses “cookies”, which are text files saved on the site visitor’s computer, to help the website analyze their use of the site. The information generated by the cookie (including the truncated IP address) about the use of the website will normally be transmitted to and stored by Google.

Google Analytics is used exclusively with the extension “_anonymizeIp ()” on this website. This extension ensures an anonymization of the IP address by truncation and thereby excludes a direct personal reference. Via this extension, Google truncates the site visitor’s IP address within member states of the European Union or within other states that are parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional situations will the site visitor’s full IP address be transmitted to Google servers in the United States and truncated there. The IP address, that is provided by the site visitor’s browser in using Google Analytics, will not be merged by Google with other data from Google.

On behalf of the site operator, Google will use the information collected to evaluate the use of the website, to compile reports on website activity and to provide other website- and Internet-related services to the site operator (Art. 6 (1)( f) GDPR).  The legitimate interest in data processing lies in the optimization of this website, the analysis of the use of the website and the adaptation of the content. The interests of the users are adequately protected by the pseudonymization of their data.

Google LLC has certified their compliance with the EU-US Privacy Shield framework, and on that basis provides a guarantee to comply with European data protection law. The data sent and linked to the Google Analytics cookies, e.g. user IDs or advertising IDs, will be automatically deleted after 50 months.  Data whose retention period has been reached are deleted automatically once a month.

The website visitor may refuse the use of cookies by selecting the appropriate settings in their browser (see below). The website visitor can also prevent Google from collecting information (including their IP address) via cookies and processing this information, by downloading this browser plugin and installing it: http://tools.google.com/dlpage/gaoptout.

Further information concerning data processing and use by Google, the settings and deactivation options can be found in the Google Privacy Policy (https://policies.google.com/privacy) as well as in the Google Ads Settings (https://adssettings.google.com/authenticated).

 

reCAPTCHA

We use the reCAPTCHA service provided by Google LLC. (Google) to protect data entered in and submitted through forms on our site. This service is used to distinguish between data entered by a human and abuse of the service by automated spam bots. This plugin query includes the sending of the IP address and possibly other data required by Google for the Google reCAPTCHA service. For this purpose, User data will be communicated to and used by Google. However, the User’s IP address is truncated beforehand by Google within member states of the European Union – or in other states which are party to the agreement on the European Economic Area – and is, as such, anonymized. Only in exceptional cases is a full IP address transmitted to a Google server in the United States and truncated there. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of this service. The IP address provided by reCAPTCHA from your browser shall not be merged with any other data from Google. This data collection is subject to the Google privacy policy. For more information about Google’s privacy policy, please visit: https://policies.google.com/privacy?hl=en
By using the reCAPTCHA service, you consent to the processing of data about you by Google in the manner and for the purposes set out above.

The User is invited to give their consent to having cookies placed on their machine by clicking “Accept” in the banner message that appears at the bottom of the Site page as they browse. Notwithstanding functional cookies, whose settings cannot be altered as the files are essential to the proper operation of the Site, the User may refuse the placement of cookies by taking steps in their browser, as follows:
