Following the entry into force of the GDPR, the exemptions, simplified standards and single authorizations adopted by the CNIL no longer have any legal value as of 25 May 2018.

In return for no longer having to complete administrative procedures with the CNIL, administrations, companies and associations processing personal data, as well as their service providers and subcontractors, are now fully responsible for protecting the data they process. It is up to them to ensure that their personal data processing is compliant with the GDPR throughout its lifecycle and to be able to demonstrate this compliance.

For this website, the person responsible of the treatment of personal data is the DPO (Data Protection Officer) of WJ Avocats: Maître Amélie Beauchemin / +33 (0)1 88 33 51 80 /

Users are hereby informed that personal data may be collected on the website, in accordance with article 32 of the amended French Data Protection Act of 6 January 1978. By becoming a registered user or by responding to a survey or any other type of questionnaire on this website, the user:

  • acknowledges that he/she voluntarily provides WJ Avocats with personally identifiable information about him/herself (for example, surname, first name, address, telephone number or e-mail address).
  • authorizes WJ Avocats to use such personally identifiable information to respond to a request from the user, to fulfill orders, or to provide the user with access to account-specific information.

The information voluntarily provided by the user on this site is recorded by WJ Avocats in a computerized file to enable content tailored to the user’s interests to be sent. It is kept for 3 years and is intended for the sales department. If the user becomes a client of WJ Avocats, their personal data will be kept for 3 years after the end of their commercial relationship with WJ Avocats.

Furthermore, in order to promote WJ Avocats’ client relationship with the user, WJ Avocats may store and use personal data and communicate them (only with a third party from a country recognized as suitable by the European Union) in order to better understand the user’s business needs and to determine how WJ Avocats can improve its products and services.

However, WJ Avocats will not sell, rent or otherwise market the user’s personal data to a third party without the user’s prior consent. In any event, the user remains free not to become a registered user and not to respond to WJ Avocats surveys or any other questionnaire.

In accordance with the French Data Protection Act, users are informed that they have the right to access, delete and rectify their own personal data by writing to the DPO – Maître Amélie Beauchemin / +33 (0)1 88 33 51 80 /



A ‘cookie’ is an element of data that a website can send to the user’s browser, which can then store it on the user’s computer. The cookie does not allow the user to be identified but is only used to track information about a user browsing the site. Users have the right to access, delete and modify personal data collected via cookies at any time by contacting the webmaster of the website concerned. They can also use their own browser to regulate cookies: the browser can be set to refuse certain cookies, and users can choose to accept or refuse certain cookies by regularly deleting them from the files containing them. Please note that cookies are saved differently depending on the browser.

During a visit to our website, a single audience measurement cookie is placed on the user’s terminal.

In the context of the GDPR, WJ Avocats is exempt from requesting prior consent as it complies with the following conditions:

  • Users are informed as soon as they access the site that they may object to their data being processed.
  • The data collected is not cross-referenced with other processing (customer files or statistics on visits to other sites, for example);
  • The tracer deposited is only used to produce anonymous statistics and does not allow tracking of browsing on different sites. It is not kept for longer than 13 months and is not extended for new visits;
  • Raw traffic data associated with an identifier is not kept for more than 13 months;
  • The use of the IP address to geolocate the user does not make it possible to determine the user’s street address, but only the country and city: only the first bytes of IP addresses are retained and may be used for geolocation purposes.

WJ Avocats shall not deposit any other tracers (targeted advertising, sharing on social networks, etc.) without the user’s prior consent. Users may object to the processing of their data at any time by contacting the DPO.
