Your legal questions
The use of personal data on the Internet is a legitimate concern for Internet users. However, the sites must comply with certain regulations, sometimes little-known!
Spam Spam is an advertising e-mail often received by Internet users. In general, the Internet user has not given prior permission to receive spam and yet it is necessary. The only exception: if the Internet user has already made a purchase from the site that sends spam, the sender does not need to request permission. In all cases, any e-mail of an advertising nature must contain a unsubscribe link which must allow the user to unsubscribe. If the Internet user's permission has not been obtained, the site is liable to a fine of €750 for each message sent.
Personal data includes not only the e-mail address, but also other data that can be communicated on the Internet: surname, first name, address, telephone number... The sites that collect this personal data must make a declaration to the CNIL (Commission nationale de l' informatique et des libertés) and inform you of your rights to access, modify or delete your data. To be in agreement with the CNIL, the site must include the following formula:"In accordance with the French Data Protection Act of 6 January 1978, you have the right to access and rectify any personal data concerning you".
Sensitive data are those which reveal, directly or indirectly, your racial or ethnic origins, your political, philosophical or religious opinions, your membership in a trade union or data relating to your health or sexual life. This is often the case on forums. The site that reuses this collected information must obtain the user's consent. If the Internet user notices this reuse, he can send a letter of formal notice to the site to stop the dissemination of this information. Failure to do so may result in fines, imprisonment and civil penalties.
Resale of data
When personal data is communicated on the Internet, it may be sold to third parties like other sites. This allows them, for example, to make consumer profiles or geolocation. Personal data may be resold without the user's consent, but must be informed. For sensitive data, resale is prohibited. If the Internet user finds that these sensitive data could have been sold without his authorization, he can send a letter of formal notice to the seller or the buyer and seize the CNIL, which will then carry out an investigation. Buyer and seller may face criminal penalties.
