Without prejudice to the choices offered to you by this document and by the Law, you acknowledge having read and accepted this Policy.

Authorized third parties:

SAN FERNANDO reserves the right to transmit your personal data to comply with its legal obligations, especially if it is compelled by judicial requisition.

In accordance with the current regulations, your personal data may be transmitted to organisms, auxiliary of justice, and ministerial officers authorized by a legislative or regulatory provision, in the context of a specific mission or the exercise of a right of communication.

When SAN FERNANDO faces a request for communication from a third

party based on a text, we ensure that the advanced provision is in force, and that it actually provides a right of communication for the requester.

SAN FERNANDO ensures to transmit only the data provided by the text or, in case of imprecision of the latter, only the data that appear strictly necessary to achieve the sought goal.

The communication of the data will be carried out in a way that ensures their security, adapting the measure retained to the nature of the data and the risks present.


In the case where SAN FERNANDO entrusts data processing activities to processors, only processors presenting sufficient guarantees regarding the implementation of appropriate technical and organizational measures are chosen, so that the processing meets the reliability and security requirements demanded by the applicable regulation and ensures the protection of the rights of the persons.

No personal information of the user of the site is published without the user’s knowledge, exchanged, transferred, assigned or sold on any support to third parties. Only the hypothesis of the buyout of SAN FERNANDO and its rights would allow the transmission of said information to the possible purchaser, who would in turn be bound by the same obligation of conservation and modification of the data with respect to the user of the site.

    Given the evolution of technologies, implementation costs, the nature of the data to protect, and the risks for the rights and freedoms of persons, SAN FERNANDO implements all appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure the confidentiality of personal data collected and processed and a level of security adapted to the risk, including:
  • A health data certified host for our care software
  • Fighting against malicious codes (viruses, spyware, software bombs…)
  • Protection of computer channels (networks)
  • Backups
  • Data compartmentalization
  • Encryption

As part of security measures, the site uses an SSL certificate. This is symbolized by the padlock present on the address bar. This guarantees that the information transmitted between your browser and our site is secured.

SAN FERNANDO staff and collaborators are also made aware of the protection of personal data.

    Personal data are not transferred outside the European Union.
    Some integrated functionalities on the site may collect data intended for servers in the United States. The transfer of these data is governed by the Data Privacy Framework.
    In accordance with the “Data Processing and Liberties” Law of January 6, 1978, as amended, and the Regulation (EU) 2016/679 relating to the protection of personal data, you have the following rights over your data: right of access, right to rectification, right to erasure (right to be forgotten), right to object, right to limit processing, right to portability, under the applicable conditions depending on the concerned processing.

You can also set directives relating to the conservation, erasure, and communication of your personal data after your death.

When processing of your personal data is based on your consent, you have the right to withdraw your consent at any time.

    Several types of cookies may be used by the site:

Functional cookies
Functional cookies are necessary for the operation of the website. Functional cookies are essential for the operation of the site and for users’ navigation on it. They allow people to use the main functionalities of the sites and secure their connection.
These cookies have a very short lifespan, for the duration that the session remains active.
Without these cookies, users will not be able to use the site normally, and it is therefore advised against preventing their use or deleting them.

Audience measurement cookies
Audience measurement and statistical cookies allow us to know the use and performance of the sites, to establish statistics, attendance and usage volumes of various elements (visited content, pathways…) to improve the interest and ergonomics of the services offered (the most frequently consulted pages or sections, the most read articles…). These cookies also serve to measure the site’s consultation traffic.
For some of these cookies, the IP address (the only data related to the identification of the Sites’ visitors in this context), is anonymized by removing the last octet.
The lifespan of audience measurement cookies is limited to thirteen months.
Refusing to implement such cookies or deleting them does not affect the navigation of people on the sites, but is likely to prevent SAN FERNANDO from ensuring the improvement of the quality of services offered to visitors of its sites.

SAN FERNANDO cannot be held responsible for the accuracy and relevance of the information published online by the user.

In case of modification of this policy by SAN FERNANDO or if the law requires it, it will be published on our site and will be effective from its publication. Therefore, we invite you to refer to it during each visit to be aware of its latest version available permanently on our Site.
