These systems have password access, are secure and encrypted as recommended in best practices and meet the requirements of Articles 4 and 5 of the GDPR.
C. LAWFULNESS, FAIRNESS AND TRANSPARENCY
Subscription to a sale, service or contract is subject to collection by the Createrra Finance website of personal data from its customers and prospects, the processing of which is necessary for the execution of the business relationship or legal obligations.
This data may be processed, saved and archived by the Createrra Finance website, or even communicated to third parties, in the context of a legitimate interest pursued by the Createrra Finance website or by the third party to which the data are provided, in particular for the management of customers’ files, the management of contracts, customer services, the management of the commercial relationship, the detection, prevention and fight against fraud, statistical studies, the management of litigation and debt collection, and payment for services.
These terms and conditions are deemed lawful, fair and transparent and correspond to the requirements set out in Article 5 of the GDPR. The lawfulness of the processing is recognised as such if it corresponds to at least one of the conditions set out in Article 6.1 of the GDPR; if none of these conditions are met, the Createrra Finance website shall not collect data, with the exception of data that may be used in the context of commercial prospecting (see point ‘D. Limitation of Purposes’).
D. LIMITATION OF PURPOSES
Personal data communicated by customers and/or prospects may be used by the Createrra Finance website for direct marketing purposes (commercial actions, personalised advertising, etc.) with a view to informing customers and/or prospects about Createrra Finance activities, products and services, unless the data subject objects to the processing of their personal data for prospecting purposes, in accordance with the provisions of Article 21 of the GDPR.
Incidentally, the Createrra Finance website does not make automated individual decisions, including profiling (i.e. any form of automated processing of personal data consisting in using such data as defined in Article 4.4 of the GDPR).
E. DATA MINIMISATION

General Information’ or in Article 9 of the GDPR.
The Createrra Finance website will therefore collect personal data that is adequate, relevant and limited to what is necessary for the purposes for which they are processed (principle of data minimisation) in accordance with Article 5 of the GDPR.
The Createrra Finance website processes personal data and ensures they are accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date. It also provides customers with specific forms which they can use to communicate directly with the data controller or its representative in order to allow the data to be accessed, rectified or erased so that they are always accurate, in accordance with the principle of accuracy expressed in Article 5 of the GDPR.

It also stores the personal data of its prospects for three years before cancelling them if no commercial transaction has been carried out during such time.
H. INTEGRITY AND CONFIDENTIALITY
The Createrra Finance website shall put in place solutions to ensure the appropriate security of personal data, including against unauthorised or unlawful processing and against accidental loss, destruction or damage by means of technical or organisational measures.
These solutions are in line with the recommendations described in Article 5 of the GDPR concerning the integrity and confidentiality of personal data.

The MiFID II directive came into force on 3 January 2018. We have provided more information on this directive here.
CREATERRA FINANCE S.A. does not attend the general meetings held by the various companies in which it holds shares, for the following reasons:
- its interest in the company may not be substantial enough to enable it to have any meaningful impact on the outcome of a vote
- the administrative costs for the customer and for the company may be too steep in relation to the added value.
CREATERRA FINANCE S.A. has set itself realistic goals and has, accordingly, provided for measures that are consistent with the size, culture, shareholder structure and organisation of the company. However, these measures must be re-examined in view of the constraints introduced in this regard by new or planned regulations, as well as the indirect operational constraints that have been imposed by its partner banks and insurance companies, which have already introduced restrictive policies in this respect, particularly as regards ESG criteria.
The engagement policy pursued by CREATERRA FINANCE S.A. will be re-examined on an annual basis.
