Athesya Privacy Policy

Athesya would like to thank you for visiting our website and having interest in our products, solutions and services. As a cybersecurity organization, Athesya takes the respect of your privacy very seriously and ensures that while you are exploring our websites sections, you are safe and so is your personal data. Athesya is committed to enforcing the strong data privacy protections enabled by GDPR compliance.

In 2016, the European Commission approved and adopted the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), a new framework for European data protection law. It replaces the EU data protection regime under Directive 95/46/EC. It is binding through all Member States of EU. Under the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”) EU 2016/679, personal data is defined as:

“any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person”.

The GDPR has been effective since May 25th,2018, and applies to companies that process Personal Information of individuals in the EU.

The GDPR applies to all organizations (including Athesya) established in the EU.
It also applies to organizations not established in the EU in two cases:

__When the organization offers products and services to data subjects in the EU
__When the organization monitors behavior of data subjects in the EU, when this behavior takes place within the EU.

The GDPR applies to Athesya because it is established in France, a member State of the European Union. Athesya markets cyber solutions in EU Member States through its website as well as outside of the EU.

The present Policy intends to provide you all relevant information in relation to the collection and processing of personal data which may be collected through Athesya websites (hereinafter, the “Websites”).
