Guillemot Corporation S.A. (hereinafter "Guillemot" or "We") respects the privacy rights of users of the Website (hereinafter "Users", "User" or "You") and is committed to protecting the information (including personal information) collected on or via the Website. In order to demonstrate this commitment, Guillemot has adopted this Policy in which We explain how We collect, store and use personal information.
We invite You to consult this Policy in order to get a better understanding of what is covered by the term "privacy". Certain areas or functionalities of the Website – whether current or future – requiring the collection and use of information (for example, a contest) may have their own conditions or regulations regarding privacy (and specific conditions of use). If You wish, You may consult them before entering your information. Guillemot reserves the right to modify this Policy without prior notice.
You have the right to access, modify, contest and rectify information pertaining to yourself. To exercise this right, please send your request to the “Webmaster” (via the “Contact us” link at the bottom of each page of the Website).
What information is collected?
Guillemot collects information about its Users in three ways: directly from the User, from our Web server logs, and via cookies.
User-supplied information: We do not collect any personal information from You without your consent. Guillemot collects information in the following cases: (1) registration as a member of the VIP community; (2) registration for participation in a contest; (3) contact requests. With respect to the information that We collect, We may ask You for personal information such as your family name, given name, date of birth, email address, nationality, country of residence and your language, as well as the name or names of the THRUSTMASTER brand products licensed by FERRARI that You own (using a drop-down list), along with the limited edition number or numbers, if any of the products is a limited edition issue.
Guillemot also stores messages, comments and emails You have sent (including personally identifiable information).
Guillemot also keeps tracks of Internet Protocol (IP) addresses for security reasons. An IP address is a unique number used by computers on the network to identify your computer every time You connect to the Internet.
Server log information: the Website, like many other websites, passively collects and records information (connection data) via its server logs. This procedure allows it to record activities on the Website, including how many "hits" a particular Web page is getting. These entries are generated anonymously and are not associated with any particular User, computer or browser.
You should also keep in mind that whenever You voluntarily disclose personal information online (for example, by email), your information can be collected and used by others. Although Guillemot endeavors to protect your personal information, Guillemot cannot guarantee the security of any information You transmit to us, and You therefore do so at your own risk. You are also solely responsible for maintaining the confidentiality of any passwords You create and/or of any information relating to your personal account as a member of the VIP community (referred to hereinafter as the “Account”).
What happens if I refuse to provide my personal information?
Should certain items of personal information not be made available to us, access to certain areas and functionalities of the Website will be affected: registration of your participation in a contest, contact requests, and membership in the VIP community. However, personal information is not required in order to access the Website and consult the majority of its contents.
How will my personal information be used?
We use your information with respect to three categories:
Information provided by the User: Guillemot may use your personal information to create and manage a community of people interested in the ranges of THRUSTMASTER brand products licensed by FERRARI, for commercial canvassing, to set up contests, to respond to emails You send us (including those sent via the “Contact us” section), to establish anonymous statistics and profiles on persons interested in the ranges of THRUSTMASTER brand products licensed by FERRARI and study their needs, and for the purposes of external communications. Moreover, this information may be used to personalize the Website and verify the identity of the User.
We also use your information for our internal marketing, technical or demographic studies, in order to better respond to your needs.
Server log information: this information allows Guillemot to assess overall activities on the Website, track interest in products announced, and troubleshoot technical problems. We also use the server log information for our internal marketing and demographic studies, thereby allowing us to offer products with higher performance and more interesting functionalities. Server log information is used internally only.
With whom may Guillemot share my personal information?
We do not communicate personal information to third party companies, with the exception of companies acting on our behalf (for example: a delivery company, allowing them to deliver a prize won by participating in a contest). We also may be obliged to transmit your personal information to the relevant authorities.
How can I exercise my rights relating to my personal information?
If You register and submit personal information to Guillemot at that time, We may send You an email to verify your email address and the fact that You are activating your Account. The message will be sent to the address You have provided to us and will allow You to unsubscribe. If, for whatever reason, You wish to consult, rectify, modify or object to the handling of your personal information, You can send your request to the “Webmaster” (in the “Contact us” section, which can be accessed via the link found at the bottom of each page of the Website). Each email communication sent by Guillemot provides recipients with the option not to receive any further email communications from Guillemot, should they wish.
Does Guillemot collect personal information from Users under 18 years of age?

Guillemot encourages parents to use the Website with their children, to monitor their use of Website and to help us protect their privacy by instructing them never to provide personal information (family name, address, phone number(s)...) without your permission.

Users under 18 years of age should not submit any information to the Website without a parent or legal guardian’s consent.
Parental access: a parent acting as a representative for his or her child under the age of 18 and/or a parent who has granted Guillemot the right to collect information on his or her child under the age of 18 may at any time: (1) consult, rectify, modify or object to the handling of personal information relating to this child; (2) suspend the subsequent use of this information as well as the communications; and/or (3) cancel the collection authorization. To do so, contact the “Webmaster” (in the “Contact us” section, which can be accessed via the link found at the bottom of each page of the Website) and We will rectify or update the information in question. Do not forget to indicate the email address under which your child is registered (We reserve the right to ask You to provide documentary evidence, particularly in order to verify your identity).
