This Policy informs you of our data protection and privacy practices and the way your personal data is collected and used by Havas. This Policy will be readily available on our home page and at the bottom of each page of this Website.
Havas strongly supports the fundamental rights to privacy and data protection as well as compliance with national and international privacy laws.
This Policy is applicable to all Havas UK entities which collect, process, use, transfer and store personal data.

We gather and use personal data for the following purposes:
Newsletters and promotional e-mails: we collect personal data when you ask to receive newsletters. We use this data to provide you the information you request.

We’ll keep your personal data for the duration needed to complete the purpose for which it was collected.

By providing us with your personal data and/or using the websites and/or entering into a contract with us, you consent to our processing your personal data for the purposes described in this Policy.
You also consent to our transferring your personal data to countries or jurisdictions which do not provide the same level of data protection as the UK, if necessary for the above purposes. If we do make such a transfer, we will provide appropriate safeguards to ensure that your personal data is duly protected. If you provide us with personal data about another person, you confirm that they have appointed you to act for them, to consent to the processing of their personal data including sensitive personal data and that you have informed them of our identity and the purposes (as set out above) for which their personal data will be processed.

Havas use external providers which may have access to your personal data. These third parties provide services such as hosting, technical connections in our applications or may help us to process your personal data as described in this Policy. Havas has signed agreements with such providers in accordance with GDPR requirements.
We may also provide social media links that enable you to share data with your social networks and to interact with Havas on various social media sites. Your use of these links may result in the collection or sharing of data about you, depending on the feature. We encourage you to review the privacy policies and settings on the social media sites with which you interact to make sure you understand the data that may be collected, used, and shared by those sites.
If you post, comment, indicate interest, or share personal data, including photographs, to any public forum, social network, blog, or other such forum, please be aware that any personal data you submit can be read, viewed, collected, or used by other users of these forums, and could be used to contact you, send you unsolicited messages, or for purposes that neither you nor Havas have control over. Havas is not responsible for the personal data you choose to submit in these forums.
Havas reserves the right to modify this Policy as needed, for example, to comply with changes in laws, regulations, Havas practices and procedures, or requirements imposed by data protection authorities.
In this case, Havas will inform Havas candidates and other persons of any material changes in this policy.
