Personal data management
In France, personal data are protected by several acts of legislation, including law no. 78-87 of 6 January 1978 (Data Protection Act), law no. 2004-801 of 6 August 2004, article L.226-13 of the French Criminal Code and the EU Directive of 24 October 1995.
In using the www.berthelotentreprises.com website, the following data may be collected: the URL of the links clicked by the user to access www.berthelotentreprises.com, the user’s ISP, the user’s IP address.
In no circumstances will Berthelot Entreprises collect personal information concerning the user except for certain services proposed on the www.berthelotentreprises.com website. The user discloses this information in full knowledge, especially if they have entered the data themselves. Users of www.berthelotentreprises.com will be informed whether the information is mandatory or not.
In accordance with the provisions of articles 38 and subsequent of the French Data Protection Act (law no. 78-17 of 6 January 1978), all users have the right to access, correct, and object to the use of their personal information, using a signed, written request supported by valid proof of identity bearing the holder’s signature, with details of the response address.
No personal information of website users is published, shared, transferred, or sold via any medium to third parties without the user’s knowledge. The sole condition under which information would be transferred is the acquisition of Berthelot Entreprises and its rights, under which the acquiring party would in turn be subject to the same obligations of data conservation and correction towards the user of the www.berthelotentreprises.com website.
The website is not declared to French data privacy authority CNIL as it does not collect personal information.
Databases are protected by the law of 1st July 1998 enacting EU Directive 96/9/EC of 11 March 1996 on the legal protection of databases.

Audience measurement tools
We use the Matomo Open Analytics Platform (open source solution formerly called Piwik) on a dedicated platform provided by Groupe Charco Net and apply CNIL recommendations on compliance with the GDPR and other regulations:
- Anonymised IP address: To prevent tracking back to a private individual, only the first two octets of the IP address are conserved (last 2 octets are masked, i.e: 192.168.xxx.xxx).
- Offer a solution to enable the refusal of audience measurement cookies: see next section “Refusing cookies”.
- DoNotTrack: If you activate the DoNotTrack function in your browser, we respect your choice to be excluded from our statistics.
