35. We conclude contracts with our subcontractors in compliance with our legal and regulatory obligations that precisely define the terms and conditions of processing of personal data by them.

36. Similarly, ISAE-SUPAERO may be required to carry out or have carried out audits of its own services as well as those of its service providers, in order to verify the application of data security rules.


37. ISAE-SUPAERO is particularly concerned about respecting the rights granted to you in the context of the data processing it implements, to guarantee you fair and transparent processing given the particular circumstances and context in which your personal data are processed.


38. As such, we confirm whether your personal data are or are not being processed and when they are, you have the right to request a copy of your data and information concerning:
the purposes of the processing;
the categories of personal data concerned;
the recipients or categories of recipients and, where appropriate, if such communication were to be made, the international organizations to which the personal data have been or will be communicated, in particular the recipients who are established in third countries;
where possible, the envisaged retention period of personal data or, where this is not possible, the criteria used to determine this period;

the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority;
information relating to the source of the data when it is not collected directly from the data subjects;

41. We draw your attention to the fact that the right to erasure of data is not a general right and that it can only be granted if one of the grounds provided for in the applicable regulations is present.

51. This right does not include derived data or inferred data, which are personal data created by ISAE-SUPAERO.

52. The data on which this right can be exercised include:
only your personal data, which excludes anonymized personal data or data that do not concern you;
the declarative personal data as well as the personal operating data mentioned above.

53. The right to portability may not affect the rights and freedoms of third parties such as those protected by trade secrets.

54. You can request the portability of the data according to the procedure defined below by specifying whether you wish to receive them yourself or, if it is technically possible for us, that we transmit them directly to another controller.

55. In this latter case, you will make sure to provide us with the exact name of this controller, their contact details and the service or person who should be the recipient. In order to facilitate the exercise of this right you must inform this recipient of your request to our services.
