Any reproduction, representation, modification, publication, adaptation of all or part of the elements on the website, regardless of the means or the process used, is prohibited, unless agreed by VITESS in writing beforehand.

7. Personal data management
In France, personal data is notably protected by Law no. 78-87 of 6 January 1978, Law no. 2004-801 of 6 August 2004, Article L. 226-13 of the Penal Code and the European Directive of 24 October 1995.
When using the VITESS website, the following may be collected: the URL of the links through which the user has accessed the site, the user’s Internet access provider, the user’s Internet Protocol (IP) address.
In any case, VITESS only collects personal information concerning the user for certain services offered by the website. The user provides this information in full knowledge of the facts, in particular when they enter it themselves. It is thus specified to the user of the VITESS website whether or not they are required to provide this information.
In accordance with the provisions of Articles 38 et seq. of Law 78-17 of 6 January 1978 relating to data protection, all users have the right to access, rectify and object to personal data concerning them, by making a written and signed request, accompanied by a copy of the identity document with the signature of the document holder, specifying the address to which the reply should be sent.
No personal information of the user of the VITESS website is published without the user’s knowledge, or exchanged, transferred, assigned or sold on any medium to third parties. Only in the event of a buyout of VITESS and its rights would it be possible to transmit the said information to the potential purchaser, who would in turn be bound by the same obligation to preserve and modify the data with regard to the user of this website.
The website is not declared to the CNIL (French Data Protection Authority) because it does not collect personal information.
The databases are protected by the provisions of the Law of 1 July 1998 transposing Directive 96/9 of 11 March 1996 on the legal protection of databases.
