We remind you that personal data is information relating to an identified or identifiable individual, such as an e-mail address, your first and last name, your IP address, etc.

Examples of personal data that we may process are:

  • identifying data, such as your first and last name, your email address;
  • application data, such as your CV, qualifications, work experience, if you wish to apply for a job with Ertex-Solar.

Certain information relating to the activity of the user on this site, may be automatically collected. This information is intended for Ertex-Solar and may be used as a basis for studies, statistics, audience measurement and other analyses for the improvement and development of the site. In addition, we may process your personal data to:

  • maintain and improve our website, as well as to ensure its security;

We always process your personal data according to one of the following legal bases:

  • When you have entered into a contract with Ertex-Solar, and the performance of that contract requires us to process your personal data, the legal basis for processing is the performance of the contract.
  • Where processing is necessary for the performance of pre-contractual measures taken at your request, our legal basis is those pre-contractual measures. For example, this is the case when you submit a job application to us, which requires us to review your CV in order to make a decision about your application.
  • Where processing is necessary for the purposes of our legitimate interests, our legal basis is those legitimate interests. For example, the processing of your personal data for the purpose of canvassing may be carried out for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by Ertex-Solar.
  • We may also process your personal data based on another of the legal bases listed in the applicable legislation or regulation.


Ertex-Solar will keep your personal data only for as long as is necessary for the purposes for which they are processed and in accordance with applicable legislation. Thus, the duration of the retention of your personal data depends on the purpose of the processing to which it is subject, according to the correspondences below:

Your data is stored in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) by Soletanche Freyssinet and its trusted service providers. However, depending on the processing, your data may also be transferred to a country outside the EU and EEA.

In the event of data being transferred outside the EU and the EEA, we ensure that the data is transferred securely and in compliance with the applicable legislation. Where the country to which the data is transferred does not have protection comparable to that of the EU, we use “appropriate or adequate safeguards”.

These appropriate or tailored safeguards are a way for us to ensure that your personal data is protected even when it leaves the EU. These appropriate safeguards may, for example, consist of the use of standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission.

On a case-by-case basis, we will inform you of our intention to transfer personal data to a third country, whether or not there is an adequate Commission decision and, if so, the reference to the appropriate safeguards and how you can obtain a copy or where they have been made available.


We may transfer your personal data to our service providers in charge of operations:

  • hosting (OVH);
  • of maintenance.

We may also be required by laws, court orders and/or requests from public and governmental authorities inside or outside your country of residence to disclose your Personal Data.

We may also disclose Personal Data if we determine in good faith that disclosure is reasonably necessary to protect our rights using available remedies, enforce our terms and conditions, investigate fraud, or protect our operations or our users.

Finally, Ertex-Solar may restructure its operations around the world at any time. These actions may result in us disclosing Personal Data to potential or existing customers or receiving Personal Data from potential vendors.
