The User assumes all risks associated with the use of the Website and the information contained therein, and waives all claims against SOCLOZ in this respect. In no event shall SOCLOZ be liable for any damages whatsoever resulting from reliance on such information, the use thereof, the use of any product referred to therein, or technical problems encountered on the Website.

The User acknowledges that SOCLOZ, as well as its information and service providers (and in particular its hosting providers), may not under any circumstances be held liable for any damage to the User that may result directly or indirectly from: (i) the dissemination of erroneous information, or (ii) any delay in the provision of services and/or the dissemination of information caused in particular by interruptions to the Website’s service due to technical faults, connection interruptions or fraudulent interventions by third parties.

Use of CRM

The data controller acknowledges and accepts that SOCLOZ may use a CRM (Customer Relationship Management) system to manage the personal data provided by the data controller. The data processor undertakes to implement appropriate security measures to protect the personal data processed using the CRM, in accordance with the laws and regulations in force.

Hypertext links

SOCLOZ formally declines all liability for the content of the websites to which it provides links. These links are offered to users of the SOCLOZ website as a service. The decision to activate the links rests exclusively with the User, who is therefore fully liable for the risks associated with their use. SOCLOZ prohibits the creation of hyperlinks to this website without its prior written consent.

Personal data

The methods of processing personal data defined below apply to all users of the Website. They describe the processing of any personal data collected by SOCLOZ when the User accesses the Website and during its use.


The personal data provided by the User to is processed under the responsibility of SOCLOZ / CLOSE TO ME SAS, 18 Boulevard des Gorgets, 21018 DIJON CEDEX France, which is therefore solely responsible for the processing.


By using the Website and providing personal information, the User consents to the collection, processing and use of his/her personal data in accordance with these terms.


Personal data provided by the User may be retained by SOCLOZ in order to keep a record of the User’s access to the Website, to enable the User to create a user profile, and/or to contact the User by email or by any other means. SOCLOZ undertakes to retain the information collected only for as long as is necessary for the purpose for which it was collected. SOCLOZ reserves the right to conduct studies and statistical analyses based on the information and data provided by the User, and to use them for editorial purposes in order to improve the quality of the services available on the Website.


When you visit the website, we collect the information you provide to us, such as your last name, first name, company name, telephone number, postal address, email address, etc. We also automatically collect other information, such as the location of the device from which you are connecting to the website (if you are using a mobile device). We may also receive data about you from third parties, in which case you may access this data at any time in order to review, rectify or object to its processing. In all cases, the User has full rights to his/her personal data, regardless of the source from which it was collected.


In the course of its activity, SOCLOZ sometimes transfers information about users of the website to third parties who are both inside and outside the European Union (this may include international organizations). With regard to the latter, if the User wishes to be informed of the existence or otherwise of the adequate protection of personal data by these third countries, the User may refer to the list drawn up by the European Commission and published on its website (as this list may vary over time, the User should refer to it regularly).

SOCLOZ may also transfer the User’s personal data to third countries or to international organizations that offer appropriate guarantees and with whom the User has enforceable rights and effective legal remedies.

Subcontractors with whom SOCLOZ does business or may do business in the course of its activity, and who are or will be required to process the personal data of users of the Website, are required to provide their users with the same technical and organizational protection and guarantees as those offered by SOCLOZ. Moreover, subcontractors may only process users’ personal data on the instructions of SOCLOZ which remains responsible for data processing carried out by its subcontractors. These subcontractors may not themselves use the services of a subcontractor without the prior written consent of SOCLOZ.


The Website contains links to other websites belonging to third parties over which SOCLOZ has no control. SOCLOZ therefore invites the User to find out about the personal data processing practices of such websites. In any event, SOCLOZ cannot be held responsible for the personal data processing, practices and content of third-party websites, and the User accesses and browses such websites at his/her own risk. SOCLOZ reserves the right, at any time, to disclose any information originating from the Website and concerning Users, in order to satisfy legal requirements. Similarly, SOCLOZ reserves the right to disclose and report to the appropriate authorities any user activity that may constitute a violation of any law or regulation.


SOCLOZ reserves the right to update and modify these terms and conditions for the processing of personal data at any time and without prior notice. The User will be informed of any changes made. If the User no longer consents to the processing of his/her data following this change, the User may exercise one of his/her rights (in particular the right to object to processing or the right to erasure) by sending a request to the contact details provided in the “User Rights” paragraph.


At any time, in the event of a violation of the User’s rights, the User has the right to lodge a complaint with the competent national supervisory authority, which is supervisory authority of the state in which the User resides. In France, this authority is the French Data Protection Authority (CNIL).


In accordance with the provisions of Law 78-17 of 6 January 1978, amended in 2004, on data processing, data files and individual liberties, and Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016, the User has control over his/her personal data. As such, the User has a right of access, rectification, erasure, portability, limitation of processing, and of objection to the processing of his/her personal data that the User can implement at any time. Under no circumstances may the implementation of the User’s rights affect the lawfulness of the processing to which the User’s personal data has previously been subject.

  • Right of access – The User may, at any time, access his/her personal data that has been collected and all the following information: the purposes of the processing of the User’s personal data, the recipients of the data collected by SOCLOZ, the existence of the User’s other rights (listed above), including the right to lodge a complaint with the supervisory authorities, and the fact that the User’s personal data is the subject of an automated decision.
  • Right of rectification – At the User’s request, SOCLOZ shall rectify any personal data that is inaccurate or incomplete, using the information provided by the User.
  • Right of erasure – At any time, the User may ask SOCLOZ to erase all or part of his/her personal data concerning that SOCLOZ has collected with the User’s consent.
  • Right to portability – The User has the right to receive from SOCLOZ a summary of his/her personal data in a structured and readable form, in particular in order to transfer this data to another data controller. The User also has the right to ask SOCLOZ directly to transfer his/her personal data to another data controller.
  • Right to restrict processing – The User has the right to restrict the processing of his/her personal data when the User has contested the accuracy of such personal data within a period of time allowing SOCLOZ to verify the accuracy of such data; or when the processing is unlawful but the User does not want his/her data to be erased; or when SOCLOZ no longer needs the personal data, but the User still needs the data in order to assert his/her legal rights.
  • Right to object to processing – The User may, at any time, object to the processing of his/her personal data, particularly when such processing is carried out automatically. The User may also object to the use of his/her personal data for profiling purposes.
  • Right of communication in the event of a breach of personal data – In the event of a breach of the User’s personal data which is likely to give rise to a high risk to the User’s rights and freedoms, SOCLOZ will inform the User as soon as possible.
