Respecting private lives and protecting personal data is particularly important to the French Research Institute for Development (IRD) and it is therefore undertaking steps to protect the personal data that it processes for its business needs.
To this end, the IRD is committed to upholding the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) (2016/679 from 17 April 2016) and the modified Digital Liberties law.
This page aims to describe personal data processing relating to use of the ird.fr website.
Personal data - Management of newsletter subscriptions
Purpose of processing
The objective of this processing is to manage newsletter subscription requests relating to the Le Mag site.
It allows the IRD to send the newsletter to people who wish to receive it.
The legal underpinning for this processing comes from Article 6 (1) a of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).
The only data processed is the user's contact information (their email address), sent by the user when they sign up for the newsletter.
The sign-up form indicates that this information must be collected in order to fulfil the user's request for service.
The processing does not involve any automated decision making.
Data processing affects people who wish to receive the site's Le Mag newsletter.
Recipients of data
The recipients of this data are:
- the IRD communications department
The information transferred to Mailchimp to ensure the newsletter is sent.
Mailchimp agrees to respect the various European regulations on data processing.
Length that data is kept
The data are kept as long as the user wishes to receive the newsletter. If the user wants to unsubscribe, the information about them will be erased. Some data may remain in the archives, but it will be stored safely and not processed from that point until it is fully erased.
The IRD implements security measures to guarantee the security of data being processed.
