Harvestr undertakes to put in place the following organisational and technical safety measures: (i) means allowing to ensure the confidentiality (data pseudonymisation, encryption, etc.), the integrity, availability and permanent resiliency of the processing systems and services; (ii) means allowing to restore the availability of the personal data and access to such data within an appropriate timeframe in the event of material or technical issue; (iii) process allowing to regularly test, analyse and evaluate the efficiency of the technical and organizational safety in place to ensure the safety of the data processing, (iv) only make the personal data available to its officers duly authorised on the basis of their functions and role, to the extent strictly necessary to the due performance of their functions (need to know basis).

Such measures shall comply with the GDPR provisions.

Additionnally, Harvestr in particular undertakes to (i) process the data solely for the purpose(s) mentioned in this Privacy Policy, (ii) guarantee the confidentiality of the personal data processed, (iii) ensure that the persons authorised to process the personal data hereunder have committed themselves to confidentiality or are under an appropriate statutory obligation of confidentiality, and receive the appropriate personal data protection training, and (iv) take into consideration, in terms of its tools, products, applications or services, the principles of data protection by design and by default.

Moreover, in order to avoid in particular all unauthorised access, to guarantee accuracy and the proper use of the data, Harvestr has put the appropriate electronic, physical and managerial procedures in place with a view to safeguarding and preserving the data gathered through its services.

Nothwithstanding this, there is no absolute safety from piracy or hackers. That is why in the event a breach of security were to affect you, Harvestr undertakes to inform you thereof without undue delay (that cannot exceed 48 hours as from our knowledge of the breach) and to use its best efforts to take all possible measures to neutralise the intrusion and minimise the impacts. The notification will be accompanied by any appropriate documentation to allow, if necessary, the notification to be made to any regulation body. This notification will describe in clear and plain language the nature of the personal data breach and at least (i) describe the nature of the personal data breach including where possible, the categories and approximate number of data subjects involved and the categories and approximate number of personal data records concerned; (ii) communicate the name and contact details of the data protection officer or other contact point where more information can be obtained; (iii) describe the likely consequences of the personal data breach; and (iv) describe the measures taken or proposed to be taken by the controller to address the personal data breach, including, where appropriate, measures to mitigate its possible adverse effects.

We undertake to notify the competent supervisory authority (the CNIL) of the personal data breaches without undue delay and, where feasible, not later than 72 hours after having become aware of them, unless the breach in question is unlikely to result in a risk to the rights and freedoms of natural persons.

Should you suffer any loss by reason of the exploitation by a third party of a security breach, Harvestr undertakes to provide you with every assistance necessary so you are able to assert your rights. Moreover if, by some exceptional case, the direct loss incurred arose due to fault or gross negligence by Harvestr, you will be able to seek compensation within the limit of liability referred to in our Terms of Use.

You should keep in mind that any user, customer or hacker who discovers and takes advantage of a breach in security renders him or herself liable to criminal prosecution and that Harvestr will take all measures, including filing a complaint and/or bringing court action, to preserve the data and the rights of its users and of itself and to limit the impacts.
