Personal data protection

Dæsign is committed to the protection of the personal data of its Client (employer) and the users (employees) of its platform.

As part of the collection of data from platform users, which is based on the contract with its Client, Dæsign wishes to inform the Client and the platform users of the data collected, the purposes for the collection and the methods used to ensure the security of such data in compliance with French law and regulations as well as European regulations.

a) Purposes for processing the platform users’ personal data

The Client provides Dæsign with the necessary data of its employees.
Dæsign grants licences to the users by supplying a username and a customisable password, and ensures the following objectives:

  • Creation and management of user accounts;
  • Provision of tracking functions allowing a mentor, appointed by the employer from within the company or from a training fund, to support the user over the course of the training;
  • Enabling the user to retrieve their progress, their answers and their score each time they log in;
  • Provision of new content to users without the need to change username or password if allocated a new licence.

b) Personal data processed by Dæsign

Dæsign processes the following information of users:

  • Surname
  • Firstname
  • E-mail
  • Language
  • Time and date of connection to platform
  • Answers to activities and obtained scores.

This data is essential for Dæsign to create and manage user accounts as well as allow the users to track their progress.

 Dæsign may carry out anonymous statistical analysis on the use of the platform’s contents by users in order improve such contents.

Furthermore, on request by the Client, users can enter other information about themselves in their personal area, such as their department, position and geographical region. This information is only for the Client to use for internal statistical purposes.
Dæsign shall not transmit the personal data of the Client or platform users to any third party for sales prospecting or any other use.
Only the mentors from the training funds appointed by the Client can access the information of those users they monitor as part of their task, insofar as it falls within their contractual duties. The role of mentors is to ensure the proper performance of the users’ training.

c) Data retention

The users’ personal data is stored on Dæsign servers for a period necessary to use the platform (i.e. the licence period and any renewed period due to a resubscription to ensure continued access to the platform).

Once the licence expires, this data is stored on Dæsign servers for a further three (3) months. This period allows Dæsign to respond to user requests for the transmission of their data and of their training records.
At the end of this three-month period, the platform’s contents to which the users had access will be lost definitively if they have not requested retrieval of their information.
Furthermore, Dæsign may store information on the users’ courses for an extra one-year period in an anonymous format, solely for internal statistical purposes.

d) Cookies

To ensure the proper functioning of the platform, Dæsign uses technical cookies that are essential to the processing described above.
No cookie requiring the user’s consent is used on the platform.

e) Personal data security

Dæsign is committed to ensuring the security of users’ personal data and takes all the measures possible to contain the risks of its loss, damage or improper use..
Connections between the platform and the servers use https. All data is encrypted.

f) Database protection

The databases connected to the platform are protected under the provisions of the law of 11 July 1998 that transposed the European Directive of 11 March 1996 on the legal protection of database to the French Intellectual Property Code The extraction and reuse, evaluated quantitatively or qualitatively, of the databases connected to the platform is forbidden.
