In application of the legislation in force, you have the right to access, challenge, correct, delete and limit the processing of your personal data. You also have the right to define what happens to your personal data after your death. These rights may be exercised by letter to the following address: bynativ, Service Relations Clients (Customer Relations Department), 3 rue de Gramont, 75002 Paris, France, attaching a copy of your ID to your application (this copy will not be retained and may be either destroyed or returned to you whichever you choose). For security reasons, your right to the portability of your personal data may only be exercised on our premises in your presence upon presentation of valid proof of identity. You are entitled to file a complaint with the CNIL (French Data Protection Commission) if you consider that we have not complied with the regulations that apply regarding personal data.
Being responsible for processing your personal data, we aim to answer any concerns you may have regarding the confidentiality of the information you send us by any medium, in particular website(s) we publish and run, chat, telephone communications, face-to-face meetings with our adviser (hereinafter “the Channels of Communication”) in order to offer our products and services.
We may obtain information about you from other sources. For example, we may ask a third-party supplier or collector to provide us with additional information about our existing clients (“data appending”) particularly information from your profile or publications on a third-party social network.

We may also collect information that appears in your profile on a third-party social network (particularly Facebook) if you authorize the social network concerned to share it with us or if you put it on line publicly. Such information may be general information relating to your account (e.g. name, e-mail address, profile photo, gender, date of birth, current town of residence, log-in, friends list, etc.) and any other information or activity you authorize the third-party social network to share with us or that you put on line publicly in your profile. We may, for example, receive your information regarding the social networks (or some of it) when you up/download or interact with one of our applications on a social network site, particularly Facebook. To find out more about how we may obtain your information regarding the social networks, please check the conditions of use of the third-party social network concerned.

When you share your personal data with us you authorize us to use, analyse, retain and possibly share it with our partners when processing your requests. By sharing personal data with us via the Channels of Communication you give your acceptance of this policy. Our policy may be changed in order to comply with changes in the legislation in force regarding personal data. We will notify you of any changes made.

I. Personal data sent to us

a) Data concerning your personal information
This consists of information about you as a natural or legal person that you have agreed to share with us via the various Channels of Communication and that is indispensable to the conception and performance of your journey such as in particular your surname, forename, e-mail address, telephone number, postal address, date of birth, etc.).

We hereby give you notice that information we must compulsorily be given is clearly indicated by asterisks on our Site. Information not identified by an asterisk is optional. In order for you to get in touch with us by telephone or at one of our offices, your adviser will tell you what information is required.

This information is indispensable for the processing of your requests for travel services which cannot, unfortunately, be processed without such information.
b) Data concerning the personal information of third parties
As part of your request for an estimate and your subsequent registration, you have the option of entering the details of one or more other people (other participants in a trip or people who have contributed to a gift list or to other events such as celebrations (marriage birthdays, etc.), emergency contact person, etc.)

Under these circumstances we will only use the data of the other people entered in order to ensure the processing of an application for an estimate and subsequent registration. If we wish to use the data of these other people listed for a purpose other than those given above, we will seek their consent beforehand.

You therefore warrant that the other people whose data you share with us are aware of the fact and agree to it.

We will inform the people whose personal data we have collected indirectly about their rights under this policy the first time we communicate with them by e-mail, including all the information necessary for the organization of their trip.
c) Minors
The various Channels of Communication are not, in principle, intended for use by minors without the permission of their parents or legal guardians. A minor aged at least 16 may request an estimate for the purposes of organizing a trip and may provide the personal data required for this purpose. As far as possible given the information provided and the technology available, we make every effort to check the minor’s age. Under no circumstances can a minor finalize, confirm or pay for a trip without the consent of the person who has parental authority.

We make every reasonable effort, given the technology available, to check that the person who has parental authority over the minor has given or authorized his/her consent.
d) Sensitive data
We have to collect data of a particular type such as health data (disability, allergy or special circumstances) and indirectly learn about the religion, beliefs or personal convictions of people concerned even though such harvesting is never direct and only undertaken by deduction (e.g. dietary characteristics). Such data is only collected for the purposes of organizing the transportation and/or the journey of the person concerned and will under no circumstances be used for any other purpose.
