Authorization to use pictures (either from the camera or from the gallery) is required in order to create a user account or to publish an advertisement. Without your authorization, you will only be able to consult other users’ advertisements.
Article 5. Where your data is processed
The data collected by GEEV is processed at the company’s headquarters. At times, it may be processed on subcontractors’ servers for technical or logistical reasons.
Article 6. Who uses the data?
Your data is communicated to authorized people employed by GEEV (post-sales, marketing, and IT development) for the purposes stated in Article 4: Purposes of the processing.
Some of the personal data collected by GEEV will be shared with subcontractors to help GEEV carry out its activities.
These providers only have access to the data necessary to perform tasks on behalf of GEEV. They are contractually obliged to protect it and use it only for the purposes instructed and in accordance with this policy.
GEEV is committed to making sure that your personal data is not disseminated, communicated, exchanged or transferred to third parties, on any medium. This information could only be transmitted should GEEV be purchased. The prospective buyer would have the same obligations with regard to the storage and modification of GEEV users’ data.
Article 7. Retention period
GEEV will retain the personal data collected to use the platform until you delete your account.
Some data may be stored longer for legal reasons.

Article 8. Transfer of your personal data
A user’s personal data may be transferred to GEEV subcontractors located outside of the European Union.
In this case, and to the extent required by applicable laws, GEEV will:
- Enter into data transfer contracts complying with the standard contractual clauses adopted by the European Commission, at the very minimum;
- Ensure that third party companies located in the United States have joined the EU-US Privacy Shield and are registered as such with the American administration.
