The Big Challenge’s primary goals in collecting information are to provide and improve the services offered on the Site, to administer your use of the Site and its services (including your account, if you are an account holder) and to enable you to enjoy and easily navigate through the Site.
The Big Challenge offers to its Users a range of services and applications, mostly of which are targeted at children under 16, and others that are intended for users of all ages.

If you do not want to be on The Big Challenge mailing list, you can opt out anytime by unregistering at email@example.com.
The Big Challenge also collects non-PII data in a form that does not permit direct association with any specific individual.
The Big Challenge may aggregate certain information it maintains with information about other individuals in a manner that does not disclose personal information specific to any individual. As an additional example, The Big Challenge may remove characteristics that make the individual personally identifiable, thereby de-personalizing the information.
If The Big Challenge does combine non-PII with PII, the combined information will be treated as PII for as long as it remains combined.
5. Privacy of children
The Big Challenge is dedicated to the privacy of children under 16 years of age.
PII about a child can be provided to the Big Challenge by its school’s teacher or by the child directly.
In a general manner, The Big Challenge gives parents or the legal guardian access or the ability to request access to PII collected from their children and the ability to request that the PII be changed or deleted.
6. International Users – Disclosure outside UE
If you’re located outside France and choose to provide your PII to The Big Challenge, the latter will transfer your PII to France and process it there.
In addition, The Big Challenge may transfer your PII to selected third parties, which may be located outside of the EU (European Union) as part of the services offered to you through the Site. By way of example, this may happen if any of the servers are from time to time located in a country outside of the EU or one of the service providers is located in a country outside of the EU.
Wherever your PII is transferred, stored or processed by The Big Challenge, The Big Challenge will take reasonable steps to safeguard the privacy of your PII.
7. Protection of PII
The Big Challenge takes precautions — including administrative, technical, and physical measures — to safeguard your PII against loss, theft and misuse, as well as against unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration and destruction.
When you use the public forum or any chat system (such as « News », « Testimony » or « Comments »), the PII you share is visible to other users and can be read, collected or used by them. You are responsible for the PII you choose to submit in these instances. For example, if you list your name and email address in a forum posting, that information is public. Please take care when using these features.
In a general manner, The Big Challenge strongly encourages children who use these interactive features on the Site, including applications, never to provide PII about themselves or any third party. The Big Challenge also recommends that parents carefully supervise their children when the children participate in online activities.
8. Integrity and Retention of PII
Regarding Users holding a personal account (« Members »), the PII will be retained during the period of one year from the creation of the account to allow the Member to find the marks he obtained at The Big Challenge contest, its corresponding certificate as well as the scores he obtained when playing the « Yes no game », « Verb Ace », « Quiz » and « Big Quiz » games.
9. Access to PII
The Big Challenge provides you with the ability to correct, update and delete your registration account.
You may also request access to the PII The Big Challenge holds about you or that The Big Challenge amends or deletes it.
To this end, please write to The Big Challenge by email at « firstname.lastname@example.org » or through postal mail at the address mentioned below at point 13.
Please be aware that, if you do not allow The Big Challenge to collect PII from you, The Big Challenge may not be able to deliver certain services to you and some of The Big Challenge services may not be able to take into account your interests and preferences.
10. The Big Challenge Companywide Commitment to Your Privacy
The Big Challenge takes reasonable measures to protect the PII that it collects from or about you from unauthorized access, use or disclosure.
