OpportunIT implements technical and organisational measures to ensure that personal data are kept securely for the duration necessary for the exercise of the purposes pursued in accordance with applicable law.
Although OpportunIT takes reasonable steps to protect your personal data, no transmission or storage technology is foolproof.
In accordance with applicable European regulations and in the event of a proven breach of Personal Data likely to create a high risk for the rights and freedoms of the persons concerned, OpportunIT undertakes to communicate this breach to the competent supervisory authority and, where required by the said regulations, to the persons concerned (individually or generally as the case may be).

7. What are your rights regarding your personal data and how to exercise them?
7.1. Your rights
Respecting the limits provided by the regulations in force, you have the following rights with regards to your personal data:
Right to information on the processing of your personal data. OpportunIT strives to provide you with concise, transparent, understandable and easily accessible information on the conditions for processing your personal data, in clear and simple terms
- Right of access, rectification and deletion (or “right to forget”) of your personal data
The right of access allows you to obtain from OpportunIT confirmation that your personal data have or have not been processed as well as the conditions of such processing, and to receive an electronic copy (for any additional copy, OpportunIT is entitled to demand payment of any reasonable fees based on the administrative costs incurred).
You also have the right to obtain from OpportunIT, as soon as possible (and by default within 30 days), the rectification of your personal data.
Finally, subject to the exceptions provided by applicable law (e.g.: retention necessary to comply with a legal obligation), you have the right to ask OpportunIT to delete, as soon as possible, your Personal Data, when one of the following grounds applies :
Your personal data are no longer necessary for the purposes for which they were collected or otherwise processed;
• You wish to withdraw your consent on which the processing of your personal data was based and there is no other basis justifying such processing;
• You consider and can establish that your personal data has been unlawfully processed;
• Your personal data must be deleted in accordance with a legal obligation
- Right to limit the processing of your personal data
The applicable regulations provide that this right may be invoked in certain cases, in particular the following:
• when you dispute the accuracy of your personal data;
• when you consider and can establish that the processing of personal data is unlawful but you oppose the deletion of personal data and demand instead that the processing be limited;
• when OpportunIT no longer needs your personal data but they are still necessary for you to establish, exercise or defend your legal rights;
• When you object to the processing that would be based on the legitimate interest of the controller, during the verification whether the legitimate grounds pursued by the controller prevail over those of the person in question.
- Right to the portability of personal data
When the processing is based on your consent or a contract, this right to portability allows you to receive the personal data you have provided OpportunIT with in a structured, commonly used format, and to transmit this personal data to another data controller without OpportunIT hindering it.
When technically possible, you may request that this personal data be transmitted directly to another controller by OpportunIT.
- Right to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data
When OpportunIT processes your personal data on the basis of your consent, this latter may be withdrawn at any time using the means provided for this purpose (procedure indicated in point 7.2 of this Policy). On the other hand, and in accordance with applicable law, the withdrawal of your consent is only valid for the future and cannot therefore call into question the lawfulness of the processing carried out before this withdrawal
- Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority
If, despite OpportunIT’ efforts to preserve the confidentiality of your personal data, you feel that your rights are not respected, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. A list of control authorities is available on the European Commission’s website.
- Right to decide the fate of your personal data after your death
Finally, you have the right to organize the fate of your personal post-mortem data through the adoption of general or specific guidelines. OpportunIT is committed to respecting these guidelines. In the absence of directives, OpportunIT recognises the possibility for heirs to exercise certain rights, in particular the right of access, if it is necessary for the settlement of the deceased’s estate; the right to object to the closure of the deceased’s user accounts ; and the right to object to the processing of their data.
7.2. How to exercise your rights
For any question relating to this Policy and/or to exercise your rights as described above, you may contact OpportunIT, electronically or by post, by sending a letter accompanied by a copy of any identity document to :
229 chemin de la vallée Crespin
OpportunIT commits to reply as soon as possible, and at the latest within one month of receipt of your request.
If necessary, this deadline may be extended by two months, taking into account the complexity and number of requests addressed to OpportunIT. In this case, you will be informed of the extension and the reasons for the postponement.
If your request is submitted in electronic form, the information will also be provided to you electronically whenever possible, unless you expressly request otherwise.
If OpportunIT does not comply with your request, it will inform you of the reasons for its inaction and you have the possibility of lodging a complaint with a supervisory authority and/or filing a judicial appeal.
8. Applicable law and competent court
This Policy is subject to French law. In the event of a dispute and if an amicable agreement cannot be reached, the competent courts shall be those of the Paris Court of Appeal, notwithstanding the defendants’ plurality or the introduction of third parties
