This treatment is necessary for the carrying out of a public interest mission under the exercise of the public authority by the Paris Region.

At the end of this data conservation duration, after sorting operations, some of this data may be kept for archival purposes in the public interest, in order, in particular, to enable scientific or historical research or statistical purposes. The selected data will be stored in a dedicated, secure archiving system. The privacy rules for this data are those defined by the “livre II du code du patrimoine” (book II of the French heritage code).

If the EU grant application is not accepted, the data retention period is limited to 2 years from the time of the rejection decision of the EU grant.
