Controller
Any processing of personal information given to SMILE.EU is carried out under the responsibility of SMILE Group, whose head office is located at 20 Rue des Jardins 92600 Asnières sur Seine.


What customer information is collected by SMILE.EU?
We collect two types of information during a visit to a Smile Group website.

•    Downloading material (e.g.: White papers), 
•    Registering for an event, 
•    Leaving a comment
The second type of information is website statistics, to support our website optimisation.


This information includes IP addresses (showing the network connection), the pages visited and the route followed on our website. We can save data such as the browser and the operating system you use, but we cannot identify you.


If you decide to voluntarily provide us with personal information, it will be stored on our secure database at our company's headquarters where the appropriate procedures for protecting the information are in place.


The data you have entered on the website can only be viewed by authorised persons within the Smile company, who are in charge of the website, support operations and the hosting of this website.


The information you provide is stored and only used for purposes approved by you. We remind you that we do not share contact information with other third party bodies.
