Who receives the personal data processed by Schelcher Prince Gestion?

We are bound by a professional secrecy obligation in relation to the personal data provided to us. However, by transmitting your personal information to us, you authorise us to share banking secrecy with respect to such data, in light of the aforementioned purposes, for the benefit of other Crédit Mutuel Arkéa group companies, their service providers and processors and any legally empowered administrative and court authorities (European Union countries or non-EU members).

Thus, in the case of a fund transfer pursuant to Regulation EC/1781 of 15 November 2006, some of your personal data may be transmitted to the bank or beneficiary of the transfer located in an EU or non-EU country. In order to transfer funds we may, for technical reasons, need to transfer data outside the EU, in particular to the US, with regard to transactions using the SWIFT secure network. The holder may obtain all and any information about said transfer by consulting the ‘Information Notice’ on the French Banking Federation’s website (

We are not responsible for personal data that you may have authorised a third party to process, but that you have not shared with it such as account aggregation applications or social media.

 In accordance with the type of personal data and the risks posed by the processing thereof, we take the technical (data encryption), physical (building access control) and organisational (dedicated teams trained in data safety) measures needed to ensure that these data are secure and are not deformed, damaged, rendered unavailable or accessed by third parties. To guarantee this level of security, additional security measures may be necessary, such as audit traces or trails.

 We raise our employees’ awareness about the protection of personal data and ensure that they comply with the regulations in force as well as with our firm’s ethics.

 We choose processors and service providers that provide significant guarantees regarding the implementation of appropriate technical and organisational measures so that your data is processed in a way that meets the requirements of the applicable data protection regulations.

 Our clients and other parties working with us (e.g., on security surveillance) may also effectively contribute to maintaining our personal data security levels by complying with the rules that we advise them to follow and informing us of any anomaly they may encounter.

If we notice an incident that impacts personal data, we make sure – based on regulatory obligations – to inform the CNIL (French data protection authority) and the persons concerned as soon possible.
