As you know, the new privacy regulation came into effect on May 25, 2018. The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) aims to further protect users’ personal data with more transparency and reliability, a personal data being anything that can identify a natural person. At 3Dnatives, we want to create this climate of trust and want to explain what data we collect, why and for how long.

For all emails sent, we currently have an email database that corresponds to all our subscribers to the weekly 3Dnatives newsletter. Occasionally, we also send emails to promote our Webinars, our ADDITIV events or latest news from our Clients. In this context, we collect the following personal data: email addresses, telephone number, name, first name, sector or position. They are stored on the third party platform MailChimp ( or MailJet ( and this, until you unsubscribe. You can unsubscribe at any time by contacting the following address [email protected] or by clicking on the unsubscribe link at the end of any email sent from [email protected]. Please note that we do not add email addresses to our emails lists without prior consent from the user concerned.

Data may also be collected via the sent emails, such as its consultation rate by each user who has registered. This information will be collected by a system allowing to record the opening of the electronic messages containing the newsletter. This data is generated and stored directly by the company MailChimp ( or MailJet (

Finally, we also have a file of customers and prospects of the advertisers of the site, containing the following personal data: email addresses, telephone number, name, first name and position. They are stored on the third party platform HubSpot ( for 3 years. Why 3 years? Because this is the period recommended today by the CNIL: “The details of a prospect who does not respond to any solicitation for 3 years must be deleted.” If after 3 years there has been no effective interaction (exchange of emails, request for information) with the person in question, we will delete all this personal data. If you do not wish to appear in this customer file, you can write to our Data Privacy Officer, Mélanie Renard, at [email protected]

You should also know that article 17 of the RGPD stipulates that “the data subject shall have the right to obtain from the controller the erasure, as soon as possible, of personal data relating to him/her”. You therefore have the right to be forgotten, which allows you to delete all personal data concerning you. You can write to the address mentioned above. We will then have a maximum of two months from the receipt of your message to process your request.

This privacy policy has also been compiled to better serve those who are concerned with how their ‘Personally Identifiable Information’ (PII) is being used online. PII, as described in US privacy law and information security, is information that can be used on its own or with other information to identify, contact, or locate a single person, or to identify an individual in context. Please read our privacy policy carefully to get a clear understanding of how we collect, use, protect or otherwise handle your Personally Identifiable Information in accordance with our website.

Fair Information Practices

The Fair Information Practices Principles form the backbone of privacy law in the United States and the concepts they include have played a significant role in the development of data protection laws around the globe. Understanding the Fair Information Practice Principles and how they should be implemented is critical to comply with the various privacy laws that protect personal information.

In order to be in line with Fair Information Practices we will take the following responsive action, should a data breach occur:

We will notify you via email

  • Within 7 business days

We also agree to the Individual Redress Principle which requires that individuals have the right to legally pursue enforceable rights against data collectors and processors who fail to adhere to the law. This principle requires not only that individuals have enforceable rights against data users, but also that individuals have recourse to courts or government agencies to investigate and/or prosecute non-compliance by data processors.


The CAN-SPAM Act is a law that sets the rules for commercial email, establishes requirements for commercial messages, gives recipients the right to have emails stopped from being sent to them, and spells out tough penalties for violations.
