The Big Challenge collects your PII for the following purposes:
No consent is required for the processing of data for these purposes since such processing is necessary to provide the services requested and, therefore, for the performance of an agreement to which you are party (GDPR art. 6,1b). It is not mandatory for you to give The Big Challenge your PII for these purposes; however, if you do not, The Big Challenge will not be able to provide any services to you. Please note that, in any case, providing an email address is optional as a student and will only be used to resend you your password if you have lost it.
Processing of data for these purposes is based on your consent (GDPR art.6, 1a). It is never mandatory for you to give consent to The Big Challenge for the use of your PII for these purposes and you will suffer no consequence if you choose not to give it (aside from not receiving further marketing communications from The Big Challenge). Any consent given may also be withdrawn at a later stage and you can opt out anytime by unregistering at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Processing of data for this purpose is based on your consent, collected by means of the cookie pop-up banner and/or a specific tick box. It is never mandatory for you to give consent to The Big Challenge using your PII for this purpose, and you will suffer no consequence if you choose not to (aside from not being able to benefit from greater personalization of your user experience on the Site). Any consent given may also be withdrawn at a later stage, either by modifying your device settings or contacting The Big Challenge at the address mentioned below or at email@example.com.
No consent is required for the processing of data for this purpose since such processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation (GDPR, art. 6, 1c).
Processing for this purpose is necessary to pursue The Big Challenge’s legitimate interests in preventing and detecting fraudulent activities or misuse of the Site (for potentially criminal purposes) (GDPR, art. 6, 1f).
Processing for this purpose is necessary to pursue The Big Challenge’s legitimate interests in the development and administration of the Site and to improve the services provided on the Site (GDPR, art. 6, 1f).
The recipients of the PII collected are the Controller (Motivation Learning Company, known as The Big Challenge) and the DPO.
The Big Challenge will not share your PII outside The Big Challenge company, excepted in limited circumstances including:
The Big Challenge also collects non-PII data in a form that does not permit direct identification of any specific individual.
The Big Challenge may aggregate certain information it holds with information about other individuals in a manner that does not disclose personal information specific to any individual.
For instance, The Big Challenge may remove characteristics that make the individual personally identifiable, thus 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.
The Big Challenge is dedicated to the privacy of children.
The Big Challenge offers a range of services and applications, most of which are targeted at children.
According to the new French Data Protection law of June 20, 2018, a « Child » is under the age of 15. Other countries may however provide for a different age and The Big Challenge undertakes to comply with local data privacy laws where necessary.
PII about a Child may be provided to The Big Challenge in two different ways: (i) by his/her teacher at school or (ii) by the Child himself usually at the initiative of his/her school’s teacher within a pedagogical project to prepare the Big Challenge contest.
PII is never directly collected by The Big Challenge from the Child himself outside any school initiative. If it exceptionally had to be the case, The Big Challenge would not collect, use or share any of the Child’s PII without first obtaining parental consent, jointly with the Child’s consent where required by law.
The Big Challenge generally 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 PII be changed or deleted.
If you’re located outside France and choose to provide your PII to The Big Challenge, it will be transferred to France and processed there.
In addition, The Big Challenge may transfer your PII to selected third parties which may be located outside of the EU (European Union) – such as the optical reading providers for instance – as part of the services offered to you through the Site.
In case of a transfer of your PII outside EU, The Big Challenge will request those third parties to implement adequate levels of protection in order to safeguard your PII. You may obtain a copy of the safeguards implemented to this end by contacting The Big Challenge by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or through postal mail at the address mentioned below at point 14.
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.
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.
Generally speaking, The Big Challenge strongly encourages children who use these interactive features on the Site, including applications, never to provide PII about themselves or about any third party. The Big Challenge also recommends that parents carefully supervise their children when the children participate in online activities.
Regarding users holding a personal account (« Members »), the PII will be retained as long as the personal account is active. If the account becomes inactive during a period of two consecutive years, it will be closed and the related PII will be deleted.
Any other PII collected will be retained for the period during which you are using The Big Challenge’s Site and its services, and deleted at the latest two years after your last connection.
The Big Challenge provides you with the possibility to correct, update and delete your registration account.
You, or your parent or legal guardian in case you are a Child, may also:
To exercise your rights, please write to The Big Challenge by email at email@example.com or through postal mail at the address mentioned below at point 14.
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.
The Big Challenge takes reasonable measures to protect the PII that it collects from or about you from unauthorized access, use or disclosure. Please be aware, however, that no method of transmitting information over the Internet or storing information is completely secure. Therefore The Big Challenge cannot guarantee the absolute security of any information.
The Big Challenge will provide notice to you if these changes are material and, where required by applicable law, will obtain your consent (through your school’s teacher or your parent and/or legal guardian if you are a Child). Notice may be given to you by email using the last email address you provided to us, by posting notice of such changes on The Big Challenge’s Site and applications, or by other means consistent with applicable law.
This Agreement is governed by and construed in accordance with French law. Any disputes relating to this Agreement are subject to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of France.
If this agreement had to be interpreted, only the French version shall prevail.
This policy will apply in all locations where The Big Challenge operates to all forms of information and to all systems used to collect, store, process or transfer information.
In countries where there are different privacy and data protection laws, The Big Challenge will comply with those laws where they meet internationally accepted privacy principles and fair information handling practices.
