In accordance with the Personal Data Legislation, PREMIERE VISION collects only data that is strictly necessary for the purposes of the data processing carried out.
The purposes of the processing of the data collected through the Website are stated in the data collection form shown on the Website.
PREMIERE VISION requires personal data provided by the Client when making a purchase in order to process and fulfil orders, mainly for managing Client registration at trade shows organised by PREMIERE VISION. This personal data is also used by PREMIERE VISION for promotional purposes to send newsletters or promotional emails.
The recipients of personal data are the relevant departments of PREMIERE VISION and data processors whereby they ensure the proper processing of the order made by the User. The User hereby expressly accepts such parties as recipients of personal data.
The User is hereby informed that, where the User's badge is scanned by an exhibitor at a Trade Show, the User's personal data will be transmitted to that exhibitor.
In accordance with the Personal Data Legislation, PREMIERE VISION will store personal data only for the time necessary to carry out the operations for which it has been collected. As a result, the User's personal data will be stored during the contractual relations between the Parties, plus another 3 years for the purposes of marketing similar products or services or where the relevant person expressly consents to such storage. Data relating to marketing leads is stored for 3 years from the last contact between the Parties.
PREMIERE VISION shall ensure the security of the personal data by establishing enhanced data protection through the use of physical and logical security means.

If the personal data is not deleted or if the data controller does not respond to the request for the deletion of data within one month from the date of the request, the person concerned may refer the matter to the French Data Protection Agency (CNIL). The agency will issue a decision on this matter within three weeks of receipt of the complaint.

The Parties jointly agree that this clause will not impede the use of any emergency proceedings by application for summary judgement or by motion.
Should the amicable resolution of the dispute fail, the Parties expressly agree that the Commercial Court of Lyon will have competence to hear the dispute, regardless of the existence of multiple defendants or the introduction of third parties. Such competence also extends to emergency proceedings and injunctions via motions or applications for a summary judgement, and for any claim based on the provisions of Article L.442-6 of the Commercial Code.
19. Applicable law – Contractual language
