VI. The obligation to notify personal data breaches to the supervisory authority and to data subjects

In accordance with Article 4.12 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), we define a personal data breach as any breach of security resulting in the accidental or unlawful destruction, loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure of or access to personal data transmitted, stored or otherwise processed.

1 – Notification of data breaches to the supervisory authority

In accordance with Article 33 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), in the event of a breach of our users’ personal data, the Website manager is obliged to notify the French National Commission for Information Technology and Civil Liberties (CNIL) as soon as possible, i.e. within 72 hours of becoming aware of the breach.

If all the details of the security incident are not available within 72 hours of the personal data breach, the Website manager will inform the supervisory authority (the CNIL) as part of its initial notification, and will communicate all the information relating to the incident in a staggered manner without further undue delay.

In accordance with Article 33.1 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), when the notification to the supervisory authority does not take place within 72 hours, the Website manager will be obliged to accompany it with reasons for the delay.

In accordance with Article 33.5 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Website manager will document any personal data breach, indicating the facts concerning the personal data breach, its effects and the measures taken to remedy it. This documentation will enable the supervisory authority to verify compliance with Article 33.5 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

As stated in Article 33.5 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Website manager will establish a register in which it will specify the information concerning the violation, including the causes, the facts, the personal data concerned as well as the measures taken by the Website manager to remedy the violation.

2 – Notification of data breaches to data subjects and processors

In accordance with Article 34 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Website manager is obliged to communicate the personal data breach to the data subjects as soon as possible, when the data breach is likely to result in a high risk to the rights and freedoms of a natural person.

In accordance with the group of Article 29 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the risk assessment will take into account the following criteria: the type of breach, the nature, sensitivity and volume of the personal data, the ease of identification of the data subjects, the severity of the consequences for the data subjects, the particular characteristics of the data subjects, the number of data subjects.

In accordance with Article 34.2 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), the Website manager will communicate the following to the data subjects:

The name and contact details of the Data Protection Officer or other point of contact from whom further information can be obtained ;
A description of the likely consequences of the personal data breach;
A description of the measures taken or proposed to be taken by the controller to remedy the personal data breach, including, where appropriate, measures to mitigate any negative consequences.
As for subcontractors, or any other partner of the Website processing the personal data of its users, in accordance with Article 28.3 of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), they must assist the Website manager in ensuring compliance with the notification obligation, taking into account the nature of the processing and the information available to the subcontractor.

The Website’s manager is obliged to notify the subcontractors and partners of the personal data breach as soon as possible, i.e. no later than 72 hours after becoming aware of it.
