    The Publisher may modify the Policy at any time, in particular in order to comply with any regulatory, legal, editorial or technical developments. The User must refer to the latest version of the Policy before browsing.
    This Privacy Policy forms an integral part of the General Terms and Conditions of Use of the Website.


    Protection of personal data
    When the User uses the Site, the Publisher may collect and process personal data in order to enable the User to access the services offered by the Site (hereinafter the "Services"). For each data entry form, the Publisher undertakes to limit the collection of data to what is strictly necessary for the purpose in question (principle of data minimisation).
    1) What data is collected?
    - Contact data: refers to the compulsory data that the User enters when filling in the contact form(s), i.e.: title, surname, first name, email address, country of residence.
    - Data voluntarily published by the User: refers to personal information that the User voluntarily communicates to the Publisher by filling in the free text zones provided for this purpose in the contact form(s), namely "Subject of request" and "Message". The Publisher strongly advises the User to avoid communicating any personal data via these text boxes or, in any event, to limit such communication to what is strictly necessary to process the User's request. If Origins were to collect personal data in this way, Origins would ensure that it used only the data strictly necessary to process the User's request (hereinafter referred to as "Published Data").
    - Browsing data: this refers to data collected by the Publisher during the User's browsing of the Site, mainly by means of cookies, such as the date and time of connection and/or browsing, type of browser, browser language and IP address.

    All of this data will hereinafter be collectively referred to as the "Data".

    The Data collected when using the Site is processed for the following purposes in particular:
    - Managing User requests via the dedicated contact form;
    - Contact to join the network via the dedicated contact form;
    - To compile statistics and measure Site traffic;
    When Data is collected, the User is informed whether certain Data is mandatory or optional. Data identified by an asterisk on the contact form is mandatory. If the mandatory sections are not filled in, access to and use of the Services by the User may be restricted.
    The use of Contact Data and Data voluntarily published by the User is necessary for the performance of the contract concluded between the User and the Publisher. This is therefore the main legal basis for the processing of Data by the Publisher. In accordance with the General Terms and Conditions of Use, the Publisher offers Users of the Website the possibility of obtaining information about the company, asking questions, making comments and, more generally, discussing its activities with the Publisher.
    The User expresses his/her consent to contract by filling in the appropriate contact form(s) and providing his/her contact details. The Publisher executes the contract by responding to the User's request and sending the information by e-mail (or, if applicable, by post). This contractual execution implies knowing the identity of the User and the possibility of interacting with him. The Publisher may also process certain Data on the basis of legitimate interest (in particular to ensure the security of the Site) or on the basis of the User's express consent (when the Publisher expressly mentions this on the contact form and collects consent via a tick box).

    3) Recipients of the Data collected
    The database created when a User sends a request via a contact form is strictly confidential. The Publisher undertakes to take all necessary precautions and appropriate organisational and technical measures to preserve the security, integrity and confidentiality of the Data and, in particular, to prevent it from being distorted, damaged or accessed by unauthorised third parties.
    The Data collected via the various forms is intended for use by the Publisher's internal departments responsible for responding to the User's request. These departments may include, depending on the case, the "Investor Relations", "Human Resources", "Communications" or "Operations" departments.

    Data may also be transferred/used by third parties under the following conditions:
    Data transferred to public authorities and/or bodies
    In accordance with the Regulations in force, Data may be transferred to the competent authorities upon request and in particular to public bodies, exclusively to meet legal obligations, judicial officers, legal agents and bodies responsible for debt recovery, as well as in the case of the search for the perpetrators of offences committed on the Internet.
    Data transferred to third parties:
    In accordance with the above provisions, the Data may be used by the Publisher, its subcontractors, its affiliated companies and/or its partners:
    - The Publisher's subcontractors (such as IT and/or technical service providers) will have access to the Data collected in the course of using the Site;
    - By ticking the box "I accept that Origins may transfer this information to other entities in the SUEZ Group for the purpose of receiving information that may be of interest to me", the User accepts that his/her Declarative Data may be used by companies in the SUEZ Group, controlled directly or indirectly by SUEZ SA as identified above, within the meaning of article L.233-3 of the French Commercial Code to inform him/her of current events, and/or to provide him/her with information about services other than those responsible for processing the User's request;

    Social networks
    If the User has an account on a social network (such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube) and accesses the Site without having first used the Services, the Publisher may receive information from the said social network in order to facilitate the completion of the contact form. The information published by the User on the Site is not transmitted to the social networks.
    In the event that the User uses a Service via a social network, the User allows the Publisher to access certain information that the User has provided to the social network, such as the User's username, first and last name, profile picture and data relating to the use of this Service. The User also authorises the Publisher to collect, store and use all information that the User has provided to the social network.

    4) Access to Personal Data by the User
    In accordance with the Regulations, all individuals have the right to access, rectify, delete, limit and port their Personal Data. These rights may be exercised at any time by providing proof of identity:

    By post: Origins - Délégué à la Protection des Données Personnelles - (Data Protection Officer)

    The Publisher reminds you that any individual may, for legitimate reasons, object to the processing of Data concerning them.

    5) Data retention and archiving
    User Data will not be kept beyond the period strictly necessary for the purposes set out herein, in accordance with the Regulations. In this respect, the Data collected with a view to managing User requests for information are kept for the time required to process the request in the active database, and then for a period of 3 years in intermediate storage, with the exception of requests relating to ethical alerts, which are kept for a period that complies with the obligations arising from the applicable regulations and the recommendations of the CNIL. Nevertheless, the Data may be archived beyond the periods stipulated for the purposes of researching, establishing and prosecuting criminal offences, with the aim of making the Data available to the judicial authorities, where necessary, or to defend oneself in any legal proceedings. The User's Data will be deleted after expiry of the retention periods.



    In addition, the Publisher may keep Data permanently anonymised for the purposes of producing statistical studies. Under no circumstances will these studies make it possible to identify Users, and they only concern trends derived from their aggregated Data.

    6) Security
    The Publisher takes appropriate technical and organisational measures to ensure the security of the Data and to prevent unauthorised access to or disclosure of User Data. However, the Publisher cannot guarantee the elimination of any risk of misappropriation, alteration, unlawful reproduction or misuse of the Data.

    Cookies
    A Cookie is a text file that may be stored in a terminal when a Service is consulted using a browser, via the Site. During its period of validity, a Cookie enables its issuer to recognise the terminal concerned each time this terminal accesses digital content containing Cookies from the same issuer, and depending on the Cookie, to collect additional anonymous information on the User's behaviour within the Services.
    Users are informed that, when they connect to the Site and use the Services, Cookies are installed on their receiving terminal (computer, tablet, smartphone, etc.) for the proper functioning of the Services, or on their browser.

    1) What are the purposes of Cookies?
    a. Browsing cookies:
    Browser Cookies are used to improve the performance of the Services in order to provide the User with a better use of the Site and the Applications. These Cookies do not require the User's prior consent to be stored on the User's terminal. More specifically, these browsing Cookies are used to:
    - compile statistics and volumes of visits to and use of the various components of the Site (sections and content visited, routes taken), enabling us to improve the interest and ergonomics of our services;
    - to adapt the presentation of the Site to the display preferences of your terminal (language used, display resolution, operating system used, etc.) during your visits to our Site, depending on the hardware and viewing or reading software that your terminal has;
    - to implement security measures, for example when you are asked to reconnect to content or a service after a certain period of time.


    b. Cookies for behavioural analysis or audience measurement :

    Behavioural analysis or audience measurement Cookies make it possible to carry out statistical measurements of Users' browsing data, to measure the number of visits, the number of pages viewed, as well as the User's activity on the Site and the frequency with which they return. These Cookies also make it possible to identify which information on the Site might be of most interest to the User, in order to adapt the Site to the User, to help improve the User's browsing experience, and to improve the relevance of messages that may be sent to the User if the User has previously accepted this possibility.

    The Google Analytics service is used to count visitors and identify how they use the Site. These Cookies are deposited and read on the User's terminal equipment as soon as the User accesses a Website using the "Google Analytics" service.

    The data generated by these cookies concerns

    - your use of the Sites ;
    - your IP address in order to determine the city of connection. This data is immediately anonymised after localisation and is not communicated to the Publisher.
    - You can obtain more information about the Google Analytics service at http://www.google.com/analytics/learn/privacy.html.

    c. Third-party social network sharing cookies:
    The Publisher may rely on certain services offered by third-party sites. These include the Twitter and LinkedIn sharing buttons, lists of tweets (Twitter) and videos broadcast on the Website (YouTube). These functionalities use third-party Cookies deposited directly by these services and enabling editorial content and any other type of content published on the Site to be shared via social networks. Social network Cookies are managed by the publisher of the social network site. The User is invited to read the social network cookie management policy on the sites concerned.

    d. "Flash"© Cookies from "Adobe Flash Player"™:
    "Adobe Flash Player"™ is a computer application that allows the rapid development of dynamic content using the "Flash" computer language. Flash (and applications of the same type) memorises the settings, preferences and use of these contents thanks to a technology similar to Cookies. However, "Adobe Flash Player"™ manages this information and the User's choices via an interface different from that provided by their browser software. Insofar as the User's terminal is likely to view content developed using Flash language, the User can access its Flash Cookie management tools directly from the http://www.adobe.com/fr/ website.
    2) How can the User manage Cookies?
    The User is firstly informed that the Publisher's partners and any other third parties may place Cookies on the Site. Only the sender of a Cookie is likely to read or modify the information contained therein and the Publisher has no access to or control over Cookies that third parties may use. The issue and use of Cookies by third parties are subject to the confidentiality policies of these third parties in addition to the provisions of this Policy. Consequently, the User is invited to visit the websites of these third parties for more information on the Cookies they record and how the User can manage them.

    a. Agreement to Cookies
    If the User accepts the storage of Cookies on their terminal via their browser software, the Cookies integrated into the pages and content that they have consulted may be stored temporarily in a dedicated space on their terminal. They will only be readable there by the sender.
    The consent given by the User is only valid for a period specific to each Cookie as from the first deposit in the User's terminal equipment, following the expression of the User's consent.

    b. Refusal of Cookies
    If the User refuses the storage of Cookies in his/her terminal or browser, or if he/she deletes those stored there, the User is informed that his/her browsing and experience on the Site or Application may be limited. This may also be the case when the Publisher or one of its service providers is unable to recognise, for technical compatibility purposes, the type of browser used by the terminal, the language and display settings or the country from which the terminal appears to be connected to the Internet. Where applicable, the Publisher declines all responsibility for the consequences linked to the degraded operation of the Services resulting from (i) the refusal of Cookies by the User (ii) the impossibility for the Publisher to save or consult the Cookies necessary for their operation due to the User's choice.


    c. Configuration of browsing software
    The User may configure his/her browser software so that Cookies are stored in the terminal or, on the contrary, so that they are rejected, either systematically or depending on the sender. Users may also configure their browser software so that they are offered the option of accepting or rejecting Cookies from time to time, before a Cookie is likely to be stored on their terminal. In this case, the Publisher cannot guarantee that the Cookies used on its Site will be saved or rejected in this way. For the management of Cookies and User choices, the configuration of each browser is different. It is described in the browser's help menu, which will tell you how to modify your wishes with regard to Cookies:
