Depending on the service you subscribe to, additional information can be required: your postal address for paper subscriptions, your preferred language, or other details such as your occupation or sector of activities.

Technical comment

We keep technical information associated to your personal information, containing for example the last technical problem encountered when sending mail, or any manual action we did on your request, in order to be able to answer your requests if any problem is encountered. This data is deleted when the problem is solved and has the same retention policy than your personal information.
