Welcome to eFounders (“eFounders SA”, “EF Paris SAS”, “we”, “us” and “our”). We build the future of work: since 2011, we build businesses that create the tools of tomorrow and inspire new ways of working.
The “Websites” means eFounders’ websites (including without limitation efounders.com, efounders.co, e-founders.com, mobile versions and related subdomains), and the “Services” means eFounders’ products and services, in each case in whatever format they may be offered now or in the future.
When you use our Services we collect personal data about you, described below. The term “Personal Data” means any data that enables a person to be identified.
We collect Personal Data as necessary for certain legitimate interests, which include the following:
To better understand how visitors interact with our Services and ensure that our Websites are presented in the most effective manner for you, and as part of our efforts to keep our Websites, network and information systems secure.
To conduct analytics to inform our marketing strategy and enable us to enhance and personalize our communications and the experience we offer to our users.
If you ask us to delete your data or to be removed from our marketing lists and we are required to fulfil your request, we will keep basic data to identify you and prevent further unwanted processing.
As used above, “legitimate interests” means our interests in conducting our business, managing and delivering the best Services to you.
