5. Use of Personal Data

 

A. Notice

Sercel informs Applicants and Employees about:

• the purposes for which personal data is collected and used; and

• the types of third parties to whom Sercel may disclose the personal data;

Sercel collects  the data detailed in item 3 above for legitimate operational and human ressources purposes, including but not limited to (1) the management, the operations and activities of the  Company,  (2) Employee/Applicants communications, (3) maintaining a global directory, (4) carrying out obligations under employment contracts and employment, tax and benefits laws, and in connection with other working relationships or arrangements, (5) development and training programs, (6) recruiting and hiring job Applicants, (7) assessing qualifications and performance, (8) performing background checks and verifying references, (9) managing Employees performance, (10) determining Employees compensation or payment, (11) managing the Employees termination process, and (12) other operational or general human resources purposes. 

Sercel discloses personal information to the following third parties to fulfil the purposes mentioned above:

 

Sercel employees

Sercel discloses personal data to employees of the Company who reasonably need to receive such personal data to perform their duties. In addition, Sercel discloses personal data to third parties who advise the Company on compensation and benefit programs or administer such programs for Sercel.

 

Third-party entities

In the event that Sercel or any portion of its assets are acquired, sold or transferred, Sercel may disclose personal information with the company involved to perform the operation and complete the transition.

 

Services Providers

Sercel may disclose personal information to services providers such as but not limited to banks, insurers, logistics and courier services companies, tax agencies and benefit providers.

Sercel implements a policy that requires each of these third parties (except certain licensed professionals, such as doctors and lawyers, who are subject to independent and legally enforceable client confidentiality obligations which have the same effect as a confidentiality agreement) to sign agreement with clause that prohibits them from disclosing such data to any other person or entity or using such data for any purpose other than that which Sercel has engaged them to provide.

 

Affiliates 

Sercel may provide personnel data to its affiliates or related companies for legitimate business purposes or supply of services.

 

Legal Parties

In certain circumstances Sercel may be requested or required to disclose personal data in response to valid legal process or in response to a lawful request by public authorities, including to meet national security or law enforcement requirements. Such circumstances may include a search warrant, subpoena, court order or other request from a government or regulatory authority or agency. Sercel reserves the right to disclose such information in response to any such legitimate government or regulatory request or requirement.

 

Emergency cases

Sercel may also disclose personal data if appropriate to protect the Company's legal rights, during emergency situations if the physical safety of an Employee or others is believed to be at risk, or to notify family members or government agencies of the location or condition of an Employee.

 

Sercel does not disclose or sell any personal data to any person or entity for marketing or any other commercial purposes.

 

B. Choice "opt in - opt out" and Onward Transfer

Subject to applicable laws, personal data may be transferred to any country in the world where Sercel does business, including countries where privacy laws may be more or less protective than the privacy laws where an Applicant or Employee lives or works, subject to compliance with applicable regulations.

Upon an on-line application for or an offer of employment, Sercel requests each Applicant or Employee to consent to the disclosures and uses of personal data as described in this Privacy Policy. Sercel does not request further consent in this regard.

Sercel does not intend to disclose or use personal data in a manner not described herein. However, should at any time Sercel need to disclose or use personal data for a purpose other the purposes for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized, Sercel will offer each Employee or Applicant a choice whether ("opt-in") or not ("opt-out") to allow such disclosure or use of that Employee or Applicant's personal data for a purpose other than the purpose for which it was originally collected or subsequently authorized by the Employee or Applicant. In this situation, Employee or Applicant consent must be received in writing (or a legally equivalent electronic form) before Sercel will disclose or use personal data in this manner. If an Employee or Applicant does not consent explicitly to such disclosure or use, Sercel will take all reasonable measures to remove that individual's personally identifiable information before the data is disclosed or used in such a manner.

Sercel only provides personal data to third party only for purposes described in the Notice section above and will not disseminate the personal data to a third party should an Employee or Applicant has opted out as above mentioned.

When the processing of personal Data is outsourced to a third party, Sercel will select reliable third parties and processing will be subject to written agreements between Sercel and the relevant third parties. These written agreements will specify that the third party has at least the same adequate level of security measures in place as required by any applicable laws to which he explicitly commits to adhere and will only process personal data on the specific written instructions of Sercel and only for the purposes mentioned.

Sercel is liable for appropriate onward transfers of personal data to third parties.

 

C. Data Security

Sercel maintains commercially reasonable safeguards to store personal data collected from Applicants and Employees in a secure-access operating environment and only accessible to Sercel employees, agents and third parties on a need-to-know basis. Sercel uses security measures and procedures that comply in all material respects with applicable laws and industry standards to guard personal data against loss, destruction, misuse, improper disclosure, and unauthorized access or modification. For example, electronically stored personal data is stored on a secure network with firewall protection, and access to Sercel's electronic information systems requires user authentication via password or similar means. Sercel also employs access restrictions, limiting the scope of employees who have access to personal data.

Sercel will only retain personal data for as long as it is necessary for the stated purpose and in compliance with any applicable laws and regulations and afterward Sercel will destroy or delete personal data in a secured manner.

Sercel will notify data breaches within the legal required time of awareness to the EU Data Protection Authority, unless said breaches are unlikely to represent a risk to the rights and freedoms of the individuals concerned.

 

D. Data Integrity

Sercel makes all reasonable efforts to ensure that personal data it collects and retains is reliable for its intended use, accurate, complete, and current.

 

E. Data Access

Any Employee or Applicant has a right to request access to their personal data and to correct any inaccuracies if any or to request their deletion if no longer needed.

Upon written request and supervision of the related HR manager, Sercel will allow an Employee or Applicant to review the personal data that Sercel stores and maintains about that individual in his or her personnel file, including information relevant to the use and disclosure of that person's personal data. However in certain limited circumstances Sercel may not be able to provide Employees or Applicants with access to all of their personal data where such refusal is permitted or required by applicable law or regulation.

Should any personal data concerning an Employee or an Applicant be found to be no longer needed, inaccurate or incomplete or if Employee or Applicant has withdrawn his consent, Sercel will take all reasonable steps to erase or correct or update the information it maintains without undue delay unless applicable laws or regulations exempt Sercel from doing so. If any information an Employee or Applicant believes to be incorrect is subject to interpretation or different viewpoints (such as a performance review), Sercel will allow that Employee or Applicant to submit a written response in that regard. The response will be included as part of that individual's personnel file.

 

F. Enforcement - Recourse and Liability

Sercel will monitor its compliance with this Policy and address questions and concerns regarding its adherence. US entities of Sercel's Group will conduct an annual in-house verification to ensure their compliance with this Privacy Policy and to renew their EU Privacy Shield certifications accordingly.

In compliance with the European Laws and the EU-US Privacy Shield Principles, Sercel is committed to resolve complaints about collection and/or use of personal information. Any inquiry or complaint regarding this Privacy Policy should first be referred to Sercel Privacy Officer, at dataprivacy@SERCEL.com.

Sercel will do its utmost to acknowledge any complaint or enquiry within forty-five (45) days of receipt and to take all appropriate action to remedy any such issues.

To contact the DPAs directly please visit: http://ec.europa.eu/justice/data-protection/article-29/structure/data-protection-authorities/index_en.htm.
