Legislation

This site is registered with the CNIL (data protection committee) under number 771778.

Members of the "n+i" network who have access to students' personal data undertake to observe utmost discretion. (Partners also sign the CNIL charter).

In compliance with article 34 of the French data protection act of 6th January 1978, you have the right to access any files holding your personal data. Should you wish to exercise this right, please: Contact us.


Protection and respect of your personal data

The General Data Protection Regulation, or "GDPR", which comes into force on May 25, 2018, grants individuals certain rights with respect to their personal data.

As a result, we have implemented additional controls and transparency measures to help users benefit from these rights.

Is defined as "user" anyone who has personal access to the site nplusi.com. It may be a student who is applying to a program of study as well as a teacher from a member school, or a subcontractor.


Protection of your data, and condition of use by "n+i" partners

The objective of service of Network n+i via its website is to nominate students for an application process for a project of study in France or abroad, directly or through members of its association: schools, research laboratories, companies, foreign universities.

Personal data are therefore available to the Network n+i, members of the n+i association and certain third parties such as (non-restrictive): Campus France desks; diplomatic posts, subcontractors, for the good execution of the service expected by the candidate.

All person who has access to the nplusi website with an access to the data of n+i applicants undertakes by the signature of a confidentiality charter to use these data only in the strict framework of the "n+i" procedure.

The personal data of the "n+i" applicants are only used for purposes of application and will not be transferred to third parties for commercial or marketing use.

The use of these data respects the legislation on the protection of personal data and is subject to the French and European legislative authority.

Rights to rectification, forgetting and portability

Any user of the web site has a right to the rectification of his personal data within a reasonable limit regarding the respect to the application procedure. Each request for modification of the application file is therefore studied on a case by case basis.

Any user can request the cancellation of his application and thus lose the services related to it.

Any user can request the archiving of his file which will be anonymized so that his personal data are "forgotten". The request will be studied according to the personal case of the user (see "Data retention").

Once archived all "personal data" will be lost: identity and account of the user, application file, messages of assistance, personal documents, commercial documents; leaving only internal information for statistical purpose only, these information will no longer allow the link with the original user.

The archiving operation is irreversible, once archived no personal information can be requested (portability) or rectified.

If he wishes, a user can request the portability of his personal data. His request can only be made through the website using the support interfaces and requires verification of the user's identity.


Data retention

The personal data of the users are kept for a limited duration according to certain constraints:

Files that no longer require action from nplusi (incomplete application, unsuccessful application, etc.) are archived at the beginning of the new recruitment campaign (see calendar on the site).

Applicants arrived in France and other users (schools, etc.) have their data stored on the nplusi website, until the archiving request or at the end of the partner's membership.

Any user of the nplusi.com website may request the archiving of his personal data in order to no longer be identified.

This request will be examined according to what the law authorize us or compels us to keep certain personal data, in particular in the following situations:

  • If there is an unresolved issue with the account, such as unpaid or unresolved claim or litigation, the Network "n+i" will retain the necessary personal data until the issue is resolved;
  • If the Network "n+i" is required to retain personal data as a result of legal, tax, auditing and accounting obligations, then Network "n+i" will retain the necessary personal data for the period required by applicable law;

Newsletter and email notification

Users of the nplusi website receive messages from nplusi of different nature:

  • "Non-critical system" notifications: automated information sent by the nplusi website (actions to complete, calendar reminder etc.).
  • "Messaging" notifications: assistance, application procedure, academic information, commercial notification etc.
  • Newsletters of information, invitation to events etc.

By default, email notifications for these messages are disabled, and are represented as alerts in the user's dashboard.

We strongly recommend users to activate these email notifications to prevent to miss an information that may be essential to the smooth running of their application (missing file elements, specific academic or financial proposals subject to a response time, etc.).

By way of exception, "critical system notifications" that are essential for the nplusi.com website to function properly can not be deactivated: creation of user account, retrieval or modification of user ids, confirmation of online payment, simplified registration, etc.


Management of our subcontractors

Our subcontractors have very limited information on the applicants who are essential for the work of the service provider (identity of the candidate for example).

"n+i" personal data can not be used by the subcontractor outside the framework defined by the Network n+i.

Strict respect of the confidentiality of personal information is a constituent aspect of the contract with the subcontractor.


Implications of the regulation on the internal organization of Network n+i

In order to ensure the smooth running of the services provided by the Network n+i, its participants have access to the personal data of the applicants.

Each n+i participant has signed a confidentiality charter for the n+i website in which each participant is informed of his responsibility regarding the information available on the nplusi website.

This is why no personal information can be communicated to a third party such as, for exemple, a relative / friend who would ask to follow the progress of an application.

"n+i" applicants must contact individually n+i for their file and their personal case only (and not for someone else) by using the support tools available on nplusi.com or during a appointment in person with presentation of a proof of identity.


Security and responsibility

Each user of the nplusi.com web site (applicant, school member, etc.) has a nplusi id (login and password).

This nplusi id is strictly the responsibility of the user and must not be communicated to a third party. This nplusi id will never be requested by an "n+i" employee.

The Network n+i is cautious about the security of its website and the information stored in it (encryption of information, security logs) but can not control the misuse that would be made of the "n+i" id or the dissemination of "n+i data" by the user on a third party platform.
