ALC hereby pledges that you shall enjoy the right to access, rectify, delete, exercise portability of, limit, oppose and define directives regarding the use of your Personal Data following your death further to a request sent by mail or email to ALC, as Processing Officer (your requests shall be processed within one month at most).

The rights defined in this article may be exercised by writing to the Data Protection Officer (DPO) by mail at this address:

ALC – Ref. DPO – 2, Avenue du Dr E. Roux – l’Octogone – 06200 NICE, France.

The right to rectify may also exceptionally be sent by email to the following address: ressources.humaines@association-alc.org .

Furthermore, in the event of ALC failing to comply with its obligations regarding current legislation/regulations, you have the right to file a claim with the French Commission for Data Protection and Liberties (CNIL).

Should you exercise your access rights, your Personal Data shall communicated in all confidentiality to you only. For your access request to be fulfilled, you will have to send the elements needed to identify you, namely, a written sworn statement in which you declare that you are indeed the owner of said Personal Data along with a photocopy of your ID.



ALC only keeps your Personal Data for the time needed to accomplish the purposes mentioned above and to fulfil our legal obligations.

For candidates in a hiring process
Personal Data relative to hiring are kept on file for twenty-four (24) months after the last time ALC contacted the applicant.

For those benefitting from ALC services
The time your Personal Data is kept on file depends on the support. This time is specified in the internal records charter. ALC hereby agrees not to keep your Personal Data on file beyond the time needed to supply a service, and thus your availing yourself of the service, plus record-keeping time imposed by legal provisions for the applicable rules.

For donors and potential donors
We make sure not to keep records of your Personal Data any longer than the time needed for the purposes set forth here, or in compliance with applicable law.


Active donors: Records may be kept in the active database for 10 years starting from the last donation or expression of renewed interest. Records are then anonymised and kept on file for analysis and statistics. People having forbidden any communication with ALC shall be excluded from mailings at the client’s request for GDPR reasons, and data needed to identify them (email address, first and last names and mailing address) shall be kept on file.

Prospective and active testators: Records may be kept in the active database through to execution of the testament and on file without any limitation in time, since the GDPR excludes the deceased in the processing of Personal Data, unless the testator designates a person to manage their right to oblivion. Should the testator inform ALC of a change of mind, they shall be deleted. People having forbidden all communication with ALC shall be excluded from mailings at the client’s request for GDPR reasons, and data needed to identify them (email address, first and last names and mailing address) shall be kept on file.

Potential donors: Records may be kept in the active database for six years starting from the time of data input or expression of renewed interest. They are then deleted, except for the people having forbidden all communication with ALC. Their data shall be excluded from mailings at the client’s request for GDPR reasons, and data needed to identify them (email address, first and last names and mailing address) shall be kept on file.



ALC undertakes to take all necessary measures in order to ensure Personal Data security and confidentiality and especially to prevent said data from being damaged, deleted or accessed by non-approved third parties.

Furthermore, in the event of a security incident affecting your Personal Data (destruction, loss, alteration or divulgation), ALC undertakes to notify violations of Personal Data, especially to the French Commission for Data Protection and Liberties (CNIL) as required by law.
