ESTP Paris' Personal Data Protection Policy

ESTP is committed to complying with and protecting the personal data of its Internet users.

The purpose of this policy is to transparently set out the rules applicable to personal data processing operations carried out by ESTP, to oversee compliance of personal data processing operations and to ensure that data subjects’ rights are respected during use of the website and any secure data collection or entry platforms by ESTP departments and external hosts. All of the above is set out in this document titled “ESTP Websites”.

This Data Protection Policy may be modified based on legal and regulatory changes or based on the recommendations issued by the Data Protection Authority (“Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés”/ CNIL).

What is personal data?

Personal data is data that directly or indirectly identifies a natural person. For example, a person may be directly identified when their surname and first name are listed on a file, i.e., a dataset that is organised in a structured manner. Similarly, an individual may be identified when a file contains information that enables them to be indirectly identified (e.g., registration no., telephone no., etc.).

Such data may also contain information on you based on your browsing history on a website, and notably information relating to use of the website, such as pages visited and services accessed, your IP address, the type of browser used, your access time, etc.

Such information must be processed and stored in compliance with legal and regulatory provisions on personal data protection.

Data controller

ESTP is a private higher education institution created with the legal status of an association under the Act of 1 July 1901 (published in the Official Journal of 2 July 1901) and its implementing Decree of 16 August 1901, registered under SIRET (company registration) No 325 002 111 00012, and whose registered office is located at 28 avenue du Président Wilson in Cachan (94230).

ESTP is the data controller for such data and, as such, determines the processing purposes and means implemented through its “ESTP Websites”.

Purpose of the processing: why do we use your personal data?

Generally speaking, you may visit our “ESTP Websites” without needing to disclose your identity or provide us with your personal data. However, we may ask you to provide us with certain personal data, with the most confidential data being collected using secure access.

Processing carried out based on the performance of a public interest mission

We process your requests for information in order to meet your course-related and advisory needs. We monitor the careers of our graduates, community, ESTP partners, etc., for the purposes of posting testimonials and interviews with ESTP community members (alumni, institutional partners and companies, etc.).

We use cookies on your device to measure and improve your experience on our website. We process your contact requests and subscriptions to our publication services: communication and information relating to ESTP on our website (brochures, newsletters, etc.), invitations to promotional or informative events organised by ESTP or its partners.

If you have agreed to the use of your personal data for these purposes by granting your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time.

Processing carried out based on ESTP’ legitimate interests

Data retention period

ESTP ensures that it stores personal data in compliance with provisions in force or for the duration necessary to meet the purposes of the processing carried out and by taking applicable legal provisions into account and enforcing a specific retention period for certain categories of data, applicable limitation periods and CNIL recommendations.

Data retention periods are defined by ESTP in view of legal and contractual requirements incumbent upon it and, failing such, based on its needs:

     - Data relating to the traceability of access to “ESTP Websites” (audience measurement): data stored for a maximum period of 2 years;
     - Personal data collected through the contact form: data stored for a period of 1 year as from your contact request if no follow-up is made;
     - Data used in the context of institutional training, scientific research and documentary missions in the public interest, whether collected or generated by the School: these are stored and updated using ESTP’ various management tools in compliance with the duration of administrative use and legal limitation periods;
     - Data used for research purposes are stored until the end of the research project or its publication and are subsequently archived in compliance with data protection, confidentiality, and any data access restriction principles.

Upon expiry of these retention periods, your data are securely and manually erased. Upon erasure, an erasure report is drafted.

Pursuant to the provision of Act no. 78-17 of 6 January 1978 amended, any person the subject of personal data processing may exercise its right to access, rectification, erasure, restriction, portability and to object to processing, and to draft advance directives on how to handle their data after their death.
