OpenStudio makes it a point of honor to respect its users' privacy, that is why we only collect the data which are necessary for the service's proper functioning. This privacy policy explains the purposes of the processing and how to exercise your rights.

Data Controller

OpenStudio is a service published by the company OpenStudio, responsible for the processing of personal data.

The processing of your personal data is based on your consent, except when the data are necessary for the performance of a contract, or to comply with a legal obligation. In cases where such processing is based on your consent, you may withdraw your consent at any time in order to stop it. Withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of the processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

Data Collected

The use of the services that OpenStudio provides requires the collection of some personal data, in particular, while creating a business account, registering, or providing access to the members of each business account. Most of these data are not personal data within the meaning of the regulation (UE) 2016/679, so-called General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). However, some are indeed personal data and enjoy specific protection.

This data collection is carried out through the information that you give us (essentially your username, e-mail address, and password), or through the use of the services itself, for technical data necessary for the brands proper functioning (information related to your device, your IP address, etc.).

OpenStudio implements appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure that, by default, only personal data which are necessary for each specific purpose of the processing are collected.

The collected data will be kept as long as the use of the services requires, and for some of them, for a minimum period imposed by law and regulation.

Purpose of the Data collection

All the information we collect is useful to the operation of the service, including improving your user experience, improving page display and operation, and, where appropriate, providing customized advertising results. Some of this data may be used if you have expressly consented, in particular for receiving newsletters from the brands on which you have registered.

Subscribing to our services, you accept that some of this data is shared automatically when creating a business account or an account on a brand.

We may share non-personal information in collective form with third parties. When we use third parties to process your personal information, we ensure that they respect our privacy policy, as well as any appropriate confidentiality and security measures.

In addition, your personal data are stored and may be communicated to public authorities at their request and in accordance with applicable laws and regulations. As such, some of your personal data must be kept, in order to make it possible to identify any person who has contributed to the creation of content posted online (Decree No. 2011-219 of 25 February 2011)

Access, Modification or Deletion of your data

You may refuse to provide personal information to us, but this may affect the operation of certain services.

Under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), you have the right to access, modify, rectify and delete your personal data collected, as well as the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. This right to erase your personal data may, however, be waived, in accordance with the General Data Protection Regulation, in order to comply with a legal obligation, or if such data are necessary for the establishment, exercise, or defense of legal rights.

To exercise these rights, various ways are at your disposal:

  • Modification of information collected when registering on a brand: you can at any time modify the data related to your account directly on the brand, by logging in and accessing the edition of your profile. This page also allows you to change your email preferences.
  • Deletion of information collected when registering on a brand: you can at any time delete an account created on a business account via a direct request to the owner of the business account. If the owner refuses, you can contact us to handle the request and discuss it with both sides.
  • Modification of information collected when creating a business account: you can modify at any time the information concerning the brand you have created from your administration panel.
  • Deleting information collected when creating a business account: you can delete your business account at any time via your administration panel.
  • Unsubscribing from newsletters: you can modify your newsletter reception choices at any time by logging in and accessing your profile edition on the brand. Moreover, you will find an unsubscribe link at the bottom of each email sent by the brand.

If you have any issues or questions regarding the exercise of this right of access, rectification, modification, or deletion of your personal data, feel free to visit our Support Center.
