2. WHAT IS OUR POLICY REGARDING DATA CONCERNING MINORS?

Our websites are not intended for minors under 18 years of age, and we do not collect personal data from these persons. Minors under 18 years of age must have the authorisation of a parent or guardian before providing personal data.

Ceva only retains personal data for the time necessary for the fulfilment of the intended purpose, subject to the legal possibilities of archiving, retention obligations for certain data and/or anonymisation.

These retention periods are defined based on the purpose of the processing and, in particular, take into account the applicable legal provisions that impose a specific retention period.

4. TO WHOM CAN WE TRANSFER YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

As your personal data is confidential, only the persons duly authorised by Ceva due to their roles may access your personal data, without prejudice to the potential transfer thereof, as required by the applicable legislation.

Ceva undertakes to take all appropriate technical and organisational measures to preserve the security, integrity, and confidentiality of data.

We do not sell personal data to third parties.

Your personal data may be sent to companies belonging to the Ceva Group.

Our authorised service providers may also be required to process your personal data that is strictly necessary for the fulfilment of the services we entrust to them: more specifically, these are the service providers in charge of the management of customer relations, the organisation of games and competitions, the management of loyalty programmes, the sending of emails for marketing purposes, the storage of data, etc.

In certain circumstances, we may transfer your personal data outside the EU, to countries which do not offer sufficient protection for the processing of personal data under EU standards.  In this case, we secure the transfer and processing with an appropriate legal framework to ensure a high level of data protection, regardless of the location in which your data is processed. The transfer may be based on the “Privacy Shield”, a self-registration process which provides a company with a mechanism to comply with EU requirements regarding data protection.

Similarly, we may be required to share this data with public administrations and bodies pursuant to the legal provisions.

 

5. HOW IS YOUR PERSONAL DATA KEPT SECURE?

Ceva undertakes to protect and secure your personal data in order to guarantee the confidentiality thereof and prevent it from being deformed, damaged, destroyed, or disclosed to unauthorised third parties.

When the disclosure of data to third parties is necessary and authorised, Ceva guarantees that these third parties shall grant the data concerned the same level of protection as that offered by Ceva, by demanding contractual guarantees that include the provision that data can only be processed for the authorised purposes, with all the required confidentiality and security.

Ceva implements technical and organisational measures to ensure that personal data is stored as securely as possible, for the period necessary to fulfil the intended purposes, in accordance with the applicable law.

Although Ceva takes all reasonable measurements to protect your personal data, no transfer or storage technology is completely infallible.

In accordance with the applicable law, in the event of proven breach to personal data regulation liable to create a significant risk to the rights and liberties of the persons concerned, Ceva undertakes to inform the competent supervisory authority of this violation and, when required by the aforementioned regulation, the persons concerned.

Without prejudice to the above, it is your responsibility to exercise prudence to prevent any unauthorised access to your personal data and your terminals (computer, smartphone, tablet, etc.), namely by choosing a strong password.

 

6. WHAT ARE YOUR RIGHTS?

Subject to the conditions provided for by the regulation in force, you have the following rights with regard to your personal data:

 

  • Right to information on the processing of your personal data

Ceva undertakes to offer you concise, transparent, comprehensible and easily accessible information, in clear and simple terms, on the conditions of the processing of your personal data.

 

  • Right to access, rectify, and erase (or "right to be forgotten") your personal data

The right to access allows you to obtain confirmation from Ceva of whether or not we process your personal data and the conditions of this processing, as well as to receive a copy of your data (for any additional copies, Ceva is entitled to request the potential payment of reasonable costs based on the administrative costs incurred). If this request is submitted electronically, the information is provided in a commonly used electronic format, unless you request otherwise.

You also have the right to obtain a correction of your inaccurate or incomplete personal data, as soon as possible.

Finally, subject to the exceptions provided for by the applicable law (e.g.: retention necessary to adhere to a legal obligation), you have the right to request the erasure of your personal data as soon as possible, when one of the following reasons applies:

► your personal data is no longer necessary with regard to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed;

► you wish to withdraw your consent upon which the processing of your personal data was based, and there are no other grounds to justify this processing;

► you consider and can prove that your personal data was subject to unlawful processing;

► your personal data must be erased pursuant to a legal obligation.

 

  • Right to restrict the processing of your personal data

The applicable regulation provides that this right may be invoked in certain cases, in particular the following:

► if you contest the accuracy of your personal data, this data processing may be restricted during the period necessary to verify the accuracy of the data;

► if you consider and can prove that the processing of personal data is unlawful, but you oppose the erasure of personal data; in this situation, you may request a restriction of the processing;

► if Ceva no longer requires your personal data, you still require this data to establish, exercise, or defend your rights in court;

► if you oppose the processing based on the legitimate interest of the data controller, during the verification to establish whether the legitimate grounds of the data controller take precedence over yours.

 

  • Right to opposition, including marketing

You may oppose the processing of your personal data, including profiling, at any time, for reasons based on your specific situation. Your data will no longer be processed, unless there are legitimate and compelling reasons for this processing, which take precedence over your interests and rights and liberties, or reasons linked to the establishment, exercise, and defence of rights in court.  If the processing is carried out for marketing purposes, you may oppose this at any time.

In this case, you will no longer receive personalised offers.

 

  • Right to personal data portability

If the processing is based on your consent or a contract, this portability right allows you to receive the personal data you have provided to Ceva in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format, and to transfer this personal data to another data controller, without Ceva preventing this.

When this is technically possible, you may request that this personal data is directly transferred to another data controller by Ceva.

 

  • Right to withdraw consent to the processing of personal data

If Ceva processes your personal data on the basis of your consent, this may be withdrawn at any time.

Conversely, and in accordance with the applicable law, the withdrawal of your consent is only valid for the future, and therefore shall not call into question the legality of the processing carried out prior to this withdrawal.

 

  • Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

If, despite Ceva's efforts to preserve your personal data, you feel your rights have not been respected, you have the right to lodge a claim with a supervisory authority.

A list of supervisory authorities is available on the website of the European Commission.

 

  • Right to decide the fate of your personal data after your death

Finally, you have the right to organise the fate of your personal data after your death, through the adoption of general or specific directives. Ceva undertakes to comply with these directives.

In the absence of directives, Ceva shall acknowledge the rights of successors to exercise certain rights, in particular the access right, if this is necessary to settle the estate of the deceased, and the opposition right to close the deceased's user accounts and oppose the processing of their data.
