By using and visiting our website, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to this privacy policy, as well as the uses made of personal information as set forth herein or amended hereafter.

This policy was last updated on 14 June 21 and may be updated from time to time. We encourage you to check back regularly to stay informed of any updates.


This Privacy Policy explains in detail our policy and practices regarding how we collect, use, store and protect your personal information.

We recognise that providing information online involves a high degree of trust on your part. We take this trust very seriously, and make it a top priority to ensure the security and privacy of the personal data you provide to us when you visit our website or use our services.

1. Collection of your personal data

“Personal Data” means any information about an individual that allows that individual to be identified, for example, e-mail addresses, date of birth, password and payment information. This information does not include data in which identity has been removed (anonymous data).

As part of our activities, we collect and process personal data in a number of ways. We may collect personal data that you provide to us directly, but we also collect data by recording your interaction with our services, for example by using cookies on this website. We may also receive information from third parties.

The personal data we collect about you may include but is not limited to: your name, email address, postal address, telephone number, survey responses, and other information you may provide about yourself through our site, as well as your IP address and web browser.

2. Use of your personal data

We use the personal data we collect about you only for specific purposes, including, but not limited to, the provision of our services to you, managing your registration and account, notifying you of changes to our terms and conditions or privacy policy, requesting your feedback or participation in a survey, protecting against and investigating and deterring fraudulent, illicit, unauthorized, and illegal activity, managing and protecting our business, and resolving disputes or problems.

We only use your personal data where we are permitted to do so by law. In general, we use your personal data in the following circumstances:

  • Where we need it to fulfil the contract we have with you.
  • Where it is necessary for the protection of our (or a third party’s) legitimate interests, and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
  • With your consent.
  • Where we need to comply with a legal or regulatory obligation.


You receive marketing messages from us if you have given us permission to send them to you, or if you have requested or purchased services from us without indicating that you do not wish to receive such messages.

Each time you receive an e-mail of this type, you have the opportunity to tell us if you no longer wish to receive such messages. You also have the option to unsubscribe from each of these marketing messages at any time by clicking on the unsubscribe link found at the bottom of each message we send you.

3. Third parties with whom we share your personal data

If we are required by law to do so, we will share personal data to protect our customers, the site, our business, and our rights and property.

We may also share your information if we believe, at our sole discretion, that it is necessary:

  • To comply with lawful and enforceable witness summons, court orders or other legal processes; to defend ourselves against legal action; or as otherwise required by law. In such cases, we reserve the right to assert or waive any legal right or objection we may have.
  • To investigate or take action regarding any illegal or suspected illegal activity or to prevent such activity; and in accordance with our terms of use and other agreements.
  • In connection with mandatory surveys (ministerial, Federation of French Grandes Ecoles [CGE] …).

In all other cases, we will inform you when your personal data is shared with third parties, and you will have the opportunity to object to your data being shared in such a way.

4. How long do we keep your personal data

We keep your personal data only for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which we collected it, including the fulfilment of any legal or accounting requirements and any statutory reporting obligations.

In determining the appropriate retention period for personal data, we take into account the amount, nature and sensitivity of the personal data, the potential risk of harm from unauthorised use or disclosure of your personal data, the purposes for which we process your personal data and the possibility of achieving those purposes by other means, as well as applicable legal requirements.

We may retain certain information, for example, if we need it to fulfil our legal obligations or to exercise, defend or enforce our rights, ensure their protection and prevent their infringement.

5. Cookies and other web technologies

Cookies are small text files that are automatically copied to your computer or mobile device when you visit a website. These files are stored by your browser. Cookies contain basic information about your use of the Internet.

6. Your rights

Under the relevant law, you have a right of access, a right of rectification, a right to be forgotten, a right to restrict processing, the right to data portability and a right to object. Below you will find further details and information on how you can exercise your rights. We will respond to your request within one month, but have the right to extend this period by two months.

Under the relevant law, you have the following rights with respect to your personal data:

  • The right to request access to your personal data. This allows you to receive a copy of the personal data we hold about you, and to check that we are processing it according to the law.
  • The right to request the correction of your personal data when incorrect, out of date or incomplete.
  • The right to request that we delete your personal data if:
    • your personal data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected / processed; or
    • you withdraw your consent where the processing of your personal data is based on consent and is not otherwise legally justified; or
    • you object to the processing of your personal data and there is no overriding legitimate interest to continue processing; or
    • your personal data was processed unlawfully; or
    • the erasure of your personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation.
  • The right to object to the processing of your personal data. We will comply with your request unless there is an overriding legitimate interest in the processing or unless we need to continue processing your personal data in order to initiate, exercise or defend legal claims.
  • The right to request the restriction of the processing of your personal data if:
    • you contest the accuracy of your personal data, for the period during which we are required to verify the accuracy of the personal data; or
    • processing is unlawful and you object to the deletion and instead request a restriction of the processing; or
    • we no longer need your personal data for the purposes of processing, but you need it to establish, exercise or defend a legal claim; or
    • you object to the processing, for the period during which we are required to verify the overriding legitimate interest.
  • The right to data portability. You have the right to ask us to supply you with your personal data. You can also ask us to send this personal data to a third party, where possible. The right to data portability only applies to personal data that you have personally provided to us, or if the processing is based on consent or is necessary for the performance of a contract between you and us and if it is carried out by automated means.

You can exercise many of your rights through the personal information section of your account. To exercise your other rights, please send an email request to

You will not be charged a fee to access your personal data (or to exercise any of the other rights described in this Privacy Policy). However, we may charge you a reasonable fee if your request is manifestly unjustified, repeated or excessive.

We may ask you to provide us with specific information to help us confirm your identity and to ensure that you have a right to access your personal data (or to exercise any of your other rights). This is a security measure to prevent disclosure of your personal data to unauthorised persons. In order to reduce our response time, we may also contact you to obtain further information about your request.

7. Protection of your personal data

Nous souhaitons vous inspirer confiance et nous nous engageons donc à protéger les données personnelles que nous recueillons. Bien qu’aucun site Web ne puisse totalement garantir la sécurité, nous avons mis en place et appliquons des mesures physiques, administratives, techniques et organisationnelles appropriées afin de protéger les données personnelles que vous nous communiquez contre tout accès, utilisation ou divulgation non autorisé ou illégal, ainsi que contre tout dommage, perte, altération ou destruction accidentels.

Par exemple, seuls les employés autorisés sont en mesure d’accéder aux données personnelles, et ils ne peuvent le faire qu’à des fins professionnelles légitimes. Par ailleurs, nous avons recours au chiffrement lors de la transmission de vos données personnelles entre votre système et le nôtre et entre notre système et celui des parties avec lesquelles nous partageons des informations confidentielles. Nous utilisons également des pares-feux et des systèmes de détection d’intrusion afin d’empêcher des personnes non autorisées d’accéder à vos données personnelles.

8. External website links

Our website may contain links to third party websites, plug-ins and applications. If you access other websites from links provided on our website, the operators of those websites may collect or share information about you. This information will be used by those operators in accordance with their privacy policy, which may differ from ours. We have no control over these third-party websites and recommend that you read the privacy statements posted on these sites to understand their procedures for collecting, using and disclosing personal data.

9. International data transfer

Your personal data may be transferred to and stored in countries outside the European Economic Area for the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy. When we store or transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area, we take the following precautions to ensure that it is properly protected.

Where we store or transfer your personal data outside the European Economic Area, we do so in compliance with existing law and ensure that it receives a similar level of protection by putting in place appropriate safeguards. Transfers of personal data are made:

  • to a country recognised by the European Commission as providing an adequate level of protection; or
  • to a country that does not provide adequate protection, with the transfer being governed by the European Commission’s standard contractual clauses, or by implementing other appropriate international transfer solutions to ensure adequate protection.

By using our services, you understand that your personal data may be transferred to our facilities and to third parties with whom we share it, as set out in this Privacy Policy.

10. Changes to this privacy policy

ESSCA may modify, update and/or replace this Privacy Policy from time to time. We indicate the date on which we last made changes to this Policy on the first page, with any changes effective upon publication. We notify our users of material changes to this Privacy Policy by sending a notice to the email address they have provided to us or by posting a notice on our website. We recommend that you check this Privacy Policy regularly to review the most current version.
