How are emails handled?

Many web pages have a ‘Contact’ button, which activates your email software and invites you to send your comments to a specific functional mailbox.

When you send such a message, your personal data are collected only to the extent necessary to reply. If the management team of the mailbox is unable to answer your question, it will forward your email to another service. You will be informed, via email, about which service your question has been forwarded to.

If you have any questions about the processing of your email and related personal data, do not hesitate to include them in your message.
