Right of access and communication of data
You have the right to know whether and how we process your personal data and to have it communicated to you in an understandable format.
However, due to our obligation of security and confidentiality in the processing of personal data, you are informed that your request will be processed provided that you can prove your identity, in particular by producing a copy of one of your valid identity documents (either electronically or by means of a signed paper photocopy).
We inform you that we will be entitled, if necessary, to oppose requests that are manifestly abusive (because of their number, repetitive or systematic nature) as well as requests that infringe the rights of third parties. This request can be made by sending us a written request to the address mentioned above, using the model letter prepared by the CNIL.

Right of opposition
The right to object allows you to object to your personal data being processed by us for a legitimate reason. You must justify this request for opposition by reasons relating to your particular situation, except for commercial prospecting (including profiling insofar as it is linked to such commercial prospecting), for which you can object without giving any reason. VERALTIS does not require your consent for our processing for the purpose of debt collection on behalf of third parties or for assigned debts. When we collect debts, we do so in order to carry out our contract and to accomplish our mission, and we process your personal data on the basis of legitimate interest.
Thus, if your request to object does not concern commercial prospecting, we will be entitled to refuse your request if: there are legitimate and compelling reasons to process your data;
- we are bound by a contract;
- we are under a legal obligation to process your data;
- the processing is necessary to safeguard your interests.
This request can be made by sending us a written request to the address mentioned above, using the model letter drawn up by the CNIL.
Right of deletion
You have the right to ask us to delete your personal data as soon as possible.
We inform you that in rare cases, we will not be able to satisfy your request, in particular within the framework of the respect of a legal obligation (for example: the conservation period of an invoice and thus of the data which appear there is 10 years).
This request can be made by sending us a written request to the address mentioned above, using the model letter prepared by the CNIL.
We also inform you that VERALTIS deletes your data through a process of anonymization, which prevents your data from being stored for unnecessary purposes.
Right of Limitation
You have the right to request the limitation of a processing operation.
This request can be made by sending us a written request to the address mentioned above, using the model letter drawn up by the CNIL.
Right to portability
You have the right to the portability of your personal data, i.e. to receive the personal data you have provided to us in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and to transmit them to another data controller.
We inform you that this right can only be exercised if your data is processed automatically (paper files are therefore not concerned) and on the basis of your prior consent or the execution of a contract concluded with you.
This request can be made by sending us a written request to the address mentioned above.
You have the right to provide us with specific instructions concerning the fate of your personal data after your death and in particular concerning their conservation, deletion and communication within the framework of the processing carried out by us.
This request can be made by sending us a written request to the address mentioned above. These directives can be modified at any time. In the absence of directives or a statement to the contrary, the heirs of a deceased person may exercise the rights of the deceased person.
We undertake to respond to your request for access, rectification or opposition or any other additional request for information within a reasonable period of time, which may not exceed ONE (1) month from receipt of your request.
However, we may extend this period by two additional months depending on the complexity and number of requests. You will then be informed of this extension of the response time, within one month of your request.
