Security and Data Retention

ARMOR PROTEINES S.A.S takes all reasonable technical and organizational measures to guard against unauthorized or unlawful processing of your Personal Information and against accidental loss or destruction of, or damage to your Personal Information. While no system is completely secure, we believe the measures implemented by the website reduce ARMOR PROTEINES S.A.S vulnerability to security problems to a level appropriate to the type of data involved. We have security measures in place to protect our user database and access to this database is restricted internally. To ensure the security and confidentiality of Personal Information that ARMOR PROTEINES S.A.S collects online, we use data networks protected by industry standard firewall and passwords. In the course of handling your Personal Information, ARMOR PROTEINES S.A.S takes measures reasonably designed to protect that information from loss, misuse, unauthorized access, disclosure, alteration or destruction.   

However, it remains your responsibility:

  • • Where you have a user account for the ARMOR PHARMA™ website:

– To log off or exit from the website when not using it;

– To ensure no-one else uses the website while your device is logged on to the website (including by logging on to your device through a mobile, Wi-Fi or shared access connection you are using);

– To keep your password or other access information secret. Your password and log in details are personal to you and should not be given to anyone else or used to provide shared access for example over a network. You should use a password which is unique to your use of the website – do not use the same password as you use for another website or email account; and,

– To maintain good internet security. For example if your email account or Facebook account is compromised, this could allow access to your account with us if you have given us those details and/or permitted access through those accounts. If your email account is compromised, it could be used to ask us to reset a password and gain access to your account with us. You should keep all of your account details secure. If you think that any of your accounts have been compromised you should change your account credentials with us, and in particular make sure any compromised account does not allow access to your account with us. You should also tell us as soon as you can so that we can try to help you keep your account secure and if necessary warn anyone else who could be affected.

ARMOR PROTEINES S.A.S does not sell, rent or trade any of your Personal Information to third parties without your consent.

We will retain your Personal Information for as long as necessary for processing purposes for which they were collected, processed and/or used and any other associated purposes.
