The GDPR Directive

The European General Regulation on Data Protection came into force on 25 May 2018. The General Data Protection Regulation covers the protection of privacy for all individuals in the European Union. Its main purpose is to transfer the control of personal data to individuals. This unified regulation also means a simplified regulatory environment for international companies. The DPMR also covers the export of personal data outside the EU, which impacts businesses in Europe and worldwide.

This is the biggest change to data protection legislation in the last 20 years. Regulators have the power to impose fines and demand changes in privacy management on a large scale across organisations. However, it also represents a major opportunity for :

  • transform our approach to privacy,
  • exploit the value of our data,
  • ensure that our organization is adapted to the digital economy.

Henri SELMER Paris and the GDPR

Henri SELMER Paris, SAS with a capital of €4,200,000, registered in the Paris Trade and Companies Register under number 572 018 281, having its registered office at 59 rue Marcadet 75018 Paris (hereinafter referred to as "Henri Selmer Paris") acts as the data controller of the personal data collected.

At Henri SELMER Paris, we believe that this new approach represents a significant step forward towards individual privacy rights. This regulatory change in the collection and processing of personal data will undoubtedly be an opportunity to set the bar high for data security.

We are firmly committed to implementing the DPMR, both for our customers and within our company. We see the DPSR as an opportunity, not a threat: it fully reflects our responsibility. 1In all our departments, we are working to implement the requirements of these new regulations, further strengthening our standards for data privacy and security.

This data policy applies as of May 25, 2018 to personal data collected by Henri SELMER Paris and its entities. This policy will be regularly updated, we invite you to visit our website ( regularly to be aware of the latest developments. You may use your right to withdraw your consent if you do not agree with our policy.

A specific data privacy policy applies to personal data concerning our employees, the terms of which may differ from the general policy.

What personal data do we process?

We may collect different categories of personal data, including :

  • identification data - name, date of birth, photo, address, passport or identity card, etc.
  • data relating to your position or activity - instruments, dealers and contact details, curriculum vitae, etc.
  • data about our exchanges - our e-mails, meetings, calls, agreements with quotations, etc.
  • If you are a trading partner as an individual - all documentation shared prior to your registration, your bank details and all financial transactions made with you
  • data relating to the proper fulfilment of our legal, tax, etc. obligations.
  • Your consent to our privacy policy.

We do not collect or process any personal data concerning religion, ethnic or racial origin, political opinions, sex life or genetic information.

For what purposes do we collect and use personal data?

We collect and use your personal data in order to :

  • to comply with our legal or regulatory obligations;
  • to be able to fulfil our obligations and benefit from our rights under agreements or contracts with you;
  • to interact with you commercially or for the purpose of analysing or drawing up a contract with you;

  • Production of internal or external videos/photographs for legitimate needs such as staff training or communication.

To whom may we disclose your personal data?

We do not sell or rent your personal information to third parties.

  • In the case of the IT department: because of their function, administrators may have access to personal data - a trace management policy has been established to regulate this activity.
  • Case of the personnel department or the human resources (HR) department: this function manages data that is sometimes private - in this case special attention is paid to this data.
  • In the case of the communication department: we make a distinction between customers and prospects - if the person is already a customer of the company, a commercial offer can be made concerning services or products similar to those already provided. - In the case of a prospect, consent will be requested.
  • Case of the commercial service: in this case we are in the execution of a contract that will not require prior consent.
  • Case of the purchasing department: we are in the case of BtoB relations. For example, business e-mail addresses are personal data - in this case we will consider that we are in the execution of a contract provided that the object is related to the recipient's profession.
  • In general we do not share your personal data with third parties unless :
    • we have a legitimate reason for doing so, e.g. sharing with our lawyers to prepare a contract with you, or with a bank to prepare a payment for you, etc. ;
    • we have your explicit consent;
    • an applicable law or regulation requires us to do so.

In the event of a transfer outside the European Union, it will be specified for each processing operation the basis for authorising this transfer as set out in Article 44 and following articles of the GDR. This will vary according to the country:

  • for the USA the Privacy Shield;
  • for the third countries concerned, the existence of a decision of adequacy to the GDMP;
  • for other countries the existence of appropriate safeguards:
    • ECB rules;
    • standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission;
    • standard data protection clauses adopted by the CNIL;
    • code of conduct approved by the CNIL;
    • certification mechanism approved by the CNIL;
  • for rarer cases the existence of binding corporate rules.

Data retention period

Your personal data is not kept indefinitely in our computer files: the retention period is determined according to the purpose for which the data was collected. Once this purpose has been achieved, this data is archived, deleted or made anonymous (in particular in order to produce statistics).

  • The retention cycle of your personal data may follow three distinct successive phases:
  • The active database;
  • Intermediate archiving - these data are only kept for legal purposes and are only accessible on a restricted basis;
  • Final archiving - these data are of historical, scientific or statistical interest and are only accessible on a restricted basis.

In terms of retention period, we comply with the recommendations of the CNIL, in particular those recommended in the simplified standards.


To prevent unauthorized disclosure or access to your personal information, we have implemented physical and electronic security measures.

We also follow procedures to ensure that we work with all personal data in line with data protection laws.

If, despite our efforts, we become aware of any unauthorised data leakage regarding your data, we will inform you as soon as possible.

In accordance with the general principles of the law, we are not responsible for the disclosure of information that was previously publicly available, nor for the storage and backup of data that we received without having requested it (e.g. a CV that was sent to us spontaneously).
