Legal basis for processing personal data under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

If you reside in the European Economic Area (EEA), Ponera’s legal basis for collecting and using the personal data described in this Privacy Policy depends on the Personal Data we collect and the specific context in which we collect it.

Ponera may process your Personal Data:

  • Because we need to fulfill a contract with you
  • Because you allowed us to do so
  • Because we have a legitimate interest in carrying out this processing and
    your rights do not override this legitimate interest
  • For payment processing purposes
  • To comply with the law

How long your data is stored

Ponera will retain your Personal Information only as long as necessary for the purposes set forth in this Privacy Policy. We will retain and use your Personal Information to the extent necessary for us to fulfill our legal obligations. For example, to comply with applicable laws or to resolve disputes and enforce our agreements and policies.

Ponera will also retain Usage Data for internal analysis. Usage Data is generally retained for a shorter period of time. Except where such data is used to enhance security or improve the functionality of our Service. Or if we are legally required to keep this data for a longer period of time.

If you leave a comment, the comment and its metadata are kept indefinitely. This will automatically recognize and approve subsequent comments instead of leaving them in the moderation queue.

For accounts that register on our site (if any), we also store the personal data specified in their profile. All accounts can view, edit or delete their personal information at any time (with the exception of their login). Site managers can also view and modify this information.

Transmission of your personal data

No direct data transmissions, i.e. portability or resale of data to third parties is made by Ponera.

Information about you, including your Personal Information, may be transferred from your region, province, country, or other territorial division. And to computers – and stored on them – located in a place where data protection laws differ from those of the territory where you reside.

If you reside outside of France and choose to provide us with information, please be aware that we transfer data, including Personal Information, to France and process it there.

By agreeing to this Privacy Policy and then submitting this information, you consent to this transfer.

Ponera will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is treated securely and in accordance with this Privacy Policy. And your Personal Data will not be transferred to any organization or country unless adequate controls are in place. This includes the security of your data and other personal data.
