Privacy Policy

Prevost takes your personal data privacy seriously. Please read on to find out more about Prevost’s privacy policy.

Prevost’s privacy policy is intended to provide information about how Prevost processes the personal data that is collected as you browse the prevost.eu websites.

Personal data

The term “personal data” refers to any information that is not otherwise publicly available and that can be used to identify you directly or indirectly, such as your name, address, email address or telephone number.

Data collection and use

Prevost collects personal data when you complete the contact forms on the prevost.eu websites. When you register, you will be asked for information such as your name, email address, the name and address of your company, and your business telephone number.

Prevost also automatically receives information from your computer and browser, including your IP address, which pages you visit, the length of time you spend on the site, and any documents you download. All personal data is collected, stored, and used by Prevost to enable us to process your contact and/or registration request (whether or not you have opened a user account; which access rights have been granted), and provide you with the latest information on Prevost products and services (newsletters on new products, trade fairs, etc.).

Data sharing and disclosure

Prevost will never rent, sell, disclose or share your personal data to or with other persons or companies outside the Prevost Group, except to comply with legal obligations imposed on Prevost (for example, responding to a judicial order), to exercise its rights, or to defend itself against legal actions.

Some companies within the Prevost Group are located outside the European Union, in countries that do not have personal data protection legislation equivalent to that applying in the European Union. The Prevost Group has implemented the necessary safeguards to supervise such transfers to a third country. Information on the safeguards implemented for this purpose is available upon request by contacting data.privacy@prevost.eu.

Data storage period

Your personal data will be held by Prevost for the time necessary to fulfil the purposes identified.

Your rights

In accordance with the French Data Protection Act 78-17 of 6 January 1978, as amended, and European Regulation No. 2016/679 on data protection, you have the right to access, rectify and erase your personal data, and the right to the portability of your personal data. You also have a right to restrict the processing that concerns you or to object to processing. You have the right not to be the subject of an individual decision that is based solely on automated processing, such as profiling. You may withdraw your consent to the processing of your data at any time.

To exercise your rights, you may send a letter specifying your request to Prevost SAS, Executive Secretary –Data Privacy, 15 Rue du pré Faucon – Annecy-le-Vieux - CS 90208, 74942 Annecy Cedex, France or email at data.privacy@prevost.eu, accompanied by a photocopy of proof of identity.

In the event of a complaint, you may refer the matter to the supervisory authority responsible for the protection of personal data.

Security and confidentiality

Prevost is committed to protecting your personal data and maintaining its quality, integrity and confidentiality. Prevost therefore allows access to your personal data solely to employees who need to consult it as part of their mission. These employees are subject to confidentiality agreements concerning processed personal data, and are aware of the risks and obligations related to processing personal data. Prevost has also implemented physical, electronic and administrative safeguards that comply with the legal requirements in place to protect your personal data.
