    What data security measures do we use?

    We use technical measures to protect our website and our systems against loss, destruction, access, modification or distribution of your data by unauthorised persons, in accordance with the current state of the art. The data transfer between our website and your computer is encrypted.

    HTTPS (Hypertext Transfer Protocol Secure) is an Internet communication protocol that protects the integrity and confidentiality of data when information is transferred between your computer and our website. Data sent via HTTPS is secured using the TLS (Transport Layer Security) protocol, which provides three key levels of protection:

    • Encryption is the process of encoding exchanged data to protect it from illegal interception. This means that when you browse our website, no one can track your activities on the different pages you visit or steal your information.
    • Data integrity: information cannot be altered or corrupted during transfer, either deliberately or unintentionally, without being detected.
    • Authentication proves that you are communicating with our website. This method protects against interceptor attacks and assures you of the specific website you are visiting.

    SPSE reserves the right to change this privacy policy at any time, in line with current data protection regulations. In the event of a change, you will find information on this page and you will have the right to object to that change by using our contact form.
