We observe very strict regulations with regards to privacy and data protection during the use of our website.



2.1 When and why do we collect your personal data?

Generally, you can visit our website without telling us who you are or sharing any of your personal data. However, as soon as you wish to access any of our services, personal data may be collected.


2.1.1 What kind of personal data do we collect?

The kind of personal data which we may collect includes, but is it not limited to; your name, home address, email address, landline and/or mobile number and any other information collected as our services are being used.


2.1.2 Purposes, legal basis for data processing and retention period of your personal data 

Every time data is processed we outline its purpose, legal basis and retention period of your personal data.


a)      User accounts and access to available services

We process your personal data which is collected when you open an account, to allow you to benefit from a number of our services.

You must open an account in order to access the available services on the website, namely:

-          Reception of EDILANS “Newsletters” and information about developments in our products and services, provided that you have expressed your consent by ticking the box provided for this purpose and

-          Quote requests for roofing work. Data processing is necessary in order to make pre-contractual estimates (quotes) at your request. Our legitimate interest in responding to your quote request necessitates data processing.

Personal data are stored for a period of three years from your last moment of contact or account activity. 


b)      Contacting you

We process your personal data when you fill out a contact form or request any information in order to be able to contact you with a response.

Our legitimate interest in responding to your request necessitates data processing.

Your personal data will be stored for the period of time necessary for us to complete your request, plus an extra six (6) months to enable us to follow up if necessary.


c)      Recruitment

We process your personal data collected during the analysis of any application that you may send us.

This data processing is necessary for the execution of pre-contractual measures (with a view to the possible signing of an employment contract or internship) done at your request. Our legitimate interest in responding to your applcation necessitates data processing.

Your personal data is stored for the duration necessary for the recruitment process.

If you are unsuccessful, we may suggest that we keep your profile, with your consent, so that we are able to contact you at a later stage if a position corresponding to your profile were to open.

Our legitimate interest in building a database of profiles likely to meet our subsequent recruitment needs necessitates data processing.

Your personal data are stored for a period of two (2) years from the last time we contacted you.


2.2 Who has access to your personal data?

Only a limited number of our employees have access to your personal data which is accessible to them only when necessary and only by virtue of their particular function.

Personal data which you share with us is not accessible to third parties, nor will it be transferred, sold or exchanged except in the cases outlined below.

As it reads on the web page, when you request a quotation your personal data will be transferred by us to one or more (up to three) qualified roofers, who will prepare an estimate in accordance with your request and send it to you. We have made all possible arrangements with these qualified professionals whom we have selected to ensure that your personal data will not be used for anything except for this purpose.

We may transfer your personal data (or make it accessible) to service providers who process personal data for our accounts. We will only transfer that which is strictly necessary to this third party so they may perform their services and contractual obligations.

In order to comply with applicable laws and regulations, we may disclose your personal data to third parties including relevant government authorities.

If, under the conditions outlined above, your personal data is likely to be transferred outside the territory of the European Union/European Economic Area, EDILIANS will ensure that the recipient is located in a country which the European Commission has certified as providing adequate levels of protection and failing that, will ensure the appropriate safeguards necessary (including by using the standard accessible contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission https://www.cnil.fr/fr/transfert-de-donnees-les-clauses-contractuelles-types-cct-de-la-commission-europeenne).
