The Data is stored and processed on the Google Cloud Platform, by Google Cloud France SARL, 8 Rue de Londres, Paris 75009, France, on servers located within the European Union.


Scibids undertakes to implement appropriate technical and organizational measures to protect Personal Data against unlawful destruction, accidental loss, alteration, unauthorized disclosure or access, in particular where the processing involves data transmissions over a network, as well as against any form of unlawful processing, being specified that these measures must ensure, taking into account the state of the art and the costs associated with their implementation, a level of security appropriate to the risks presented by the processing and the nature of the Personal Data to be protected.

We will not disclose your personal information to third parties without your consent, other than to such third parties as described in this Policy. We may disclose personal information to third-party service providers (e.g., data storage and processing facilities) that assist us in our work. We limit the personal information provided to these service providers to that which is reasonably necessary for them to perform their functions.

We may also disclose personal information if we believe that doing so is legally required or if it is in our interest to protect our property or other legal rights (including, but not limited to, enforcement of our agreements), or the rights or property of others.

In addition, information about our users, including personal information, may be disclosed as part of any merger, acquisition, debt financing, sale of company assets, or similar transaction, as well as in the event of an insolvency, bankruptcy, or receivership in which personal information could be transferred to third parties as one of our business assets.


Please note that, in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR, some of these rights apply only in limited circumstances, which we will specify to you as appropriate.


You have the right to access the information we hold about you.
This includes the right to request additional information from us regarding:

  • The categories of data we process.
  • The purposes of data processing.
  • Categories of third parties to whom data may be disclosed.
  • The length of time the data will be retained (or the criteria used to determine this length).
  • Your other rights regarding our use of your data.

Once we are satisfied that you are the person to whom the data relates or their duly authorised representative, we will provide you with the information as soon as possible, provided that this does not prejudice the rights and freedoms of any other person (e.g. the right to privacy or the intellectual property rights of another person).


You have the right to request the correction of any inaccurate personal data about you.

In certain circumstances (e.g., where personal data is required in connection with a criminal investigation) we will not be able to comply with your request.


You have the right to limit the way we use your personal data.
This right is intended to apply in limited circumstances, for example where you challenge the accuracy of your personal data. In this case, you may request that we restrict the use of your data until we can verify their accuracy.


You have the right to object to our continued use of your data where the processing is based on our legitimate interest.
To exercise this right, you will need to provide Scibids with reasons relating to your particular circumstances justifying your objection. Scibids may continue to process the data, and therefore reject your request, if there are compelling legitimate grounds for the processing which override your interests and rights, or if the data is necessary for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.


You have the right to request portability of your data to another service provider where the lawful basis for processing is your consent or the performance of a contract.
We will give you a copy of your data so that you can provide it to another service. If you request us to do so and it is technically possible, we will transfer the data directly to that other service provider on your behalf. We will not do this if it would result in the disclosure of personal data relating to a third party.

Right to erasure or "right to be forgotten”.

You have the right to request your right to be forgotten by Scibids.
You may ask us to delete any personal data we hold about you, to the extent that it is no longer necessary for us to retain it in connection with your use of Scibids services or if you expressly withdraw your consent (if this is the lawful basis for processing).
This right applies unless the data needs to be retained due to legal or regulatory requirements, for safety, security and fraud prevention purposes, or due to an account issue such as an unresolved claim or dispute.

Automated decision making and profiling

For the purposes of the processing operations covered in this policy, we do not make any automated decisions about you, nor do we carry out any profiling

Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority

You have the right to lodge a complaint with a competent supervisory authority, (the French National Commission for Information Technology and Liberties or “CNIL” for France), in the Member State in which is located your habitual residence, your place of work or the place where the violation of your rights would have been committed, if you consider that the processing of your Data as provided by this Privacy Policy constitutes a violation of the applicable laws. Such complaints may be exercised without prejudice to any other claim before an administrative or jurisdictional court.


To exercise your rights or to contact Scibids for any questions related to the processing of your personal data, you can send us an email to
