Privacy and confidentiality
What personal data is collected?
GROUPE ATLANTIC collects the following information:
- Information relating to creating the customer account
- Information from the devices connected to the COZYTOUCH account
Information relating to creating the customer account
When you install COZYTOUCH on your tablet or smartphone, you will be asked to enter the following information:
- postal address;
- the specifications of your home (surface area, energy source used, etc.).
This information will then be incorporated into your profile, which you can access using the login and password that you have entered.
The information entered has two purposes:
- the operation of the COZYTOUCH features, such as for example displaying data about the weather or air quality in your town;
- understanding the environment in which Edesa, Atlantic and Thermor brand products are used, enabling us to improve their thermal performance and the features of the application.
Information from the devices connected to the Cozytouch account
The different devices connected to COZYTOUCH have functions that collect information such as:
- the temperature of your home;
- your estimated energy consumption;
- the settings of the connected devices (on/off function, temperature setpoints, heating schedules, etc.);
- the geolocation data from your mobile phone.
This information, which you can view, is necessary to enable you to use COZYTOUCH‘s various features and to optimize your thermal comfort by accessing the different functions of your Edesa, Atlantic and Thermor devices.
You can choose whether or not to activate certain features.
What are your rights over your personal data?
As a user of the COZYTOUCH services, you have the right:
- to request that the processed data concerning you is erased from our files. If you exercise your right to be forgotten, and you have access to a customer area on a web site, this access will then be suspended as your login will be erased from our files. We cannot erase your data while you have an order outstanding or a dispute exists between you and us or, more generally, while we need your data to perform a contract or fulfill one of our obligations;
- to object to the collection and processing of data concerning you when they are not strictly necessary;
- to access the data collected concerning you and receive them in a commonly used machine-readable format;
- to obtain the rectification of the data concerning you;
- to request restriction of the processing of the data concerning you – for example by refusing any use for canvassing purposes.
These rights can be exercised by contacting us:
- By email: email@example.com
- By post (with a copy of your identification document if you are exercising your rights) at the following address:
A l’attention du délégué à la protection des données (DPO)
44 boulevard des Etats-Unis
85000 La Roche-sur-Yon
You also have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority and seek a judicial remedy, particularly if no action has been taken on your requests to exercise your rights within a period of one month after they were made.
How long do we retain your data for?
The personal data in your profile will be retained until the COZYTOUCH account is deleted. After the deletion of the account, we only store the operating information from the products that have been paired with the COZYTOUCH bridge, known as technical information.
The technical information is anonymized and retained indefinitely in order to (i) ensure continuity of service when an account is created again using the number of the COZYTOUCH bridge and (ii) enable us to improve the operation of our devices.
Where do we store your personal data?
The processing of personal data by GROUPE ATLANTIC takes place in data centers hosted in the European Union.
If personal data is transferred to Groupe Atlantic companies or processors outside the European Union, GROUPE ATLANTIC undertakes to ensure that these recipients comply with the provisions of Regulation (EU) 2016/679.
What are our obligations regarding your personal data?
GROUPE ATLANTIC takes all reasonable measures necessary to protect the personal (or potentially personal) data processed against unauthorized access, use, modification or destruction.
We have undertakings relating to the security of our services and have put in place physical, administrative and technical measures aimed at preventing unauthorized access to your data. Our security policies cover security management for internal operations and our services. These policies govern all areas of security applicable to the services and apply to all GROUPE ATLANTIC employees, as well as our service providers and subcontractors who need to have access to this data.
If we establish that your data has been misappropriated or otherwise acquired erroneously by a third party, we will inform both you and the supervisory authority (CNIL in France) as soon as possible.
How is the information used?
Use of the data by GROUPE ATLANTIC
We only use your personal data for the purposes of running your COZYTOUCH account. We undertake never to sell them without your agreement.
With your consent when you create your account, we can use your email address to tell you about our offers, give you information about new features and products, ask for your opinion or simply keep you abreast of news and offers from GROUPE ATLANTIC brands. We can also send you information about Atlantic, Thermor and Edesa products or the COZYTOUCH application (new functions, tutorials, etc.).
If you no longer wish to receive this information, you can withdraw your consent by going to your personal COZYTOUCH area.
The other technical information relating in particular to your devices’ settings are used for analysis purposes, to improve our devices and the COZYTOUCH application, and to offer you innovative new services.
GROUPE ATLANTIC thus processes your personal data on the following legal bases:
- when you have given us your consent for us to process your personal data, or
- due to the legitimate interest that GROUPE ATLANTIC has in processing your personal data (if GROUPE ATLANTIC has an interest in processing your data that is justified, proportionate and does not interfere with your privacy) or
- as part of the processing of personal data that is mandatory pursuant to legislation.
Partner services in the application
So that we can constantly offer you more features, we have developed “Partner services” in the COZYTOUCH application, which can be accessed from the application menu. This section lets you decide whether or not to activate the partner service yourself, and thus exchange data with the partner and accept its confidentiality charter.
