Legal bases and Purpose of Processing

SEMIN is not authorised to process personal data if we do not have a legal basis to do so. Therefore, we only process your personal data if (i) we have obtained your prior consent, (ii) the processing is necessary for the provision of the services we offer to you or (iii) the processing is necessary for the fulfilment of the legitimate interests of our company, in our capacity as data controller.

The main purposes of collecting, storing and processing personal data are to:

manage and improve the relationship between our company and you; 
enable the proper operation of the Site; 
respond to your requests; 
send you our publications, press releases and information, including our newsletter;

Recipient(s) of Personal Data

Your personal data will not be transmitted or made accessible to third parties, with the exception of authorised members of our company's staff and our service providers (such as IT system suppliers, hosts, consultants), it being understood that each of these service providers is subject to strict data protection and confidentiality obligations.

In addition, in the event of a proven breach of legal or regulatory provisions, this data may be communicated to the judicial authorities at their express and justified request.

We may share your personal data, as far as possible in a concealed manner, with other third parties, for example in the context of a possible sale, merger and/or restructuring of the company, and this solely for the purposes of the operation and within the framework of a confidentiality obligation. In the event of a personal data breach, we will inform you and the relevant supervisory authority as required by applicable law.

Security Measures

SEMIN has implemented technical and organisational measures to protect your personal data against unauthorised, accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, misuse or unauthorised disclosure of your personal data. These measures ensure an appropriate level of data security and take into account the current state of expertise, the costs of implementation in relation to the risks, and the nature of the data to be protected.

Our company also guarantees that the members of its staff who are required to process your personal data comply with the internal rules and procedures relating to the processing of personal data, and in particular the technical and organisational security measures put in place to protect your personal data.

You also have the right to withdraw your consent to the processing of your personal data (without this affecting the lawfulness of the processing carried out previously). You also have the right to set out instructions on what to do with your data in the event of your death.
