DATA COLLECTION


The personal information that may be collected on the site is principally used by the publisher to manage relations with site users, and when appropriate to process orders. It is registered in the publisher’s customer database, and the database created as such from personal data is declared to the CNIL. 
In accordance with the provisions of the amended Law n° 78-17 of 6 January 1978, on data processing, databases and civil liberties, you have the right to access, consult, amend and delete information concerning you, which may be exercised at any time by contacting the publisher either directly on the site under the section “Contact the webmaster”, or by mail to the following address: 37 Avenue de Paris, 45000 Orléans.

The information collected may potentially be disclosed to third parties linked to the publisher by contracts for the performance of subcontracted tasks necessary for the management of your account, without your authorisation being required. In the event of a proven breach of the legal or regulatory provisions, this information may be supplied to the judicial authorities if they should make an explicit and justified request to this effect. 
When certain information is required to access specific features of the site, this will be indicated by the publisher at the time of data entry.

COOKIES AND PERSONAL DATA


The site uses cookies. This means that the site is able to access information already stored in the terminal equipment of the user’s electronic communications network and record information there.

What is a cookie?
A cookie is a small text file containing various information.  It is placed in the memory of the user’s terminal (computer, tablet, Smartphone…) by the server of the website visited or a third-party server (web analytical service, etc.). It will allow, during the duration of the cookie’s validity or storage, the identification of the terminal during subsequent visits. Third-party companies may also, subject to their choice, place cookies on the computer (Ex: Google Analytics, Facebook, etc.). Whatever the type of cookie, only the issuer of the cookie can read or modify the information it contains.


What are the different types of cookie used by www.valdeloire-france.com?
The site exclusively uses cookies considered “strictly necessary", which do not require the prior consent of the user.

Essential cookies: They are vital for the proper running of the site because they allow access to reserved spaces such as “My Selection” thanks to the data stored during a browsing session. They allow us to store information on forms that the user is likely to fill in on our website, and to adapt the presentation of our site according to the viewing preferences of their terminal.  Without these cookies, it would not be possible for them to use our site in normal conditions.

Analytical or performance cookies: these blank cookies allow us to find out the usage and performance of our site and improve its operation. They principally measure the data of your browsing (number of visits, sections and content visited, etc.). These cookies are essential because they allow us to increase the interest and ergonomics of our services and indeed even detect browsing problems. 

Social media cookies: Some pages on our site use third-party plug-ins, which allow the internet user to share the content of our site with others. This is the case with the “Share” or “Like” buttons on social media sites such as Facebook or Twitter. We have no control over the process used by social networks to collect information on the browsing patterns of visitors to our site. We ask those users of our site who are also followers of one of these networks, to consult the privacy protection policies of these social media networks for information on the purposes of the browsing information that they may receive thanks to these application buttons, notably for advertising.

Accepting or refusing cookies
These cookies cannot, technically, be disabled from the site. The user may however choose to block them, exclusively by configuring their browser settings. This configuration depends on the browser used, but is generally easy to carry out: in principle, it is possible either to activate a private browsing setting or simply to disable or restrict the cookies. Be careful, it is possible that cookies may have been saved to the user’s device before configuration of their browser: in this case, they must delete their browser history, again using the configuration settings of their browser. 
Important note: We remind you that configuring the browser in terms of cookies is likely to change the conditions of access to our services. If the browser is configured to disable all cookies, the user will not be able to benefit fully from all of our services. 

In these circumstances, we may not be held liable in the event of limited functioning of the site and its services resulting from the impossibility of saving or consulting the cookies necessary for its proper functioning, which may have been refused or deleted. 

Configuration of the site user’s browser 
Configuration for the management of cookies depends on each browser. Here are the help tools online for configuring them:

Users are entirely responsible for the hardware used to connect to the site. They must take all appropriate measures to protect their hardware and their own data, particularly from virus attacks over the Internet. They are also solely responsible for the sites and data they consult
The publisher may not be held liable in the event of judicial proceedings initiated against users of the site:
-  for use of the site or any service accessible via the Internet;
-  for their failure to comply with these terms and conditions. 
The publisher is not responsible for damage caused to the user of the site, to their hardware, or to third parties, caused by their own connection to or use of the site. Users therefore waive any action against the publisher on such grounds.
If the publisher should be the subject of amicable or judicial proceedings on account of improper use of the site by a user, it may take action against the latter to obtain payment for all damages, condemnations and costs which could result from this proceeding. 

 

FUNDING


The French State, Centre-Val de Loire Regional Council, Pays de la Loire Regional Council and Atout France (the tourism development agency of France) have agreed to jointly implement a tourism development project to promote the "Loire Valley" destination.

This initiative was given concrete form by the signature of a memorandum of understanding in Tours on 16 January 2012, to promote the "Loire Valley" as a tourist destination, and a three-year framework agreement. This was signed on 5 June 2012 by the State, the Regional Councils of Centre-Val de Loire and Pays de la Loire, the Comité Régional du Tourisme Pays de la Loire, the Agence Régionale des Pays de la Loire and the Comité Régional du Tourisme Centre – Val de Loire. The three-year framework agreement involves a common commitment to provide financial support for a three-year promotion programme. The creation of a "Loire Valley" brand and emblem was the first step.

Pursuing this initiative, the Centre-Val de Loire and Pays de la Loire regions submitted a bid in a “V2 Destination Contract” tendering procedure intended to promote destination brands with an international reach. On 24 November 2014, the French Government confirmed in a letter that the "Loire Valley" application had been accepted for such a Destination Contract.

The contract was signed in Paris on 16 December 2014 in the presence of Laurent Fabius, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, Mattias Fekl, Minister of State for the Promotion of Tourism and French Nationals Abroad and Carole Delga, Minister of State for Commerce, Small-Scale Industry, Consumer Affairs and Social and the Solidarity Economy.

The first initiative under this contract is the creation of the website to promote the "Loire Valley" destination.

The  www.valdeloire-france.com  website is funded by the Centre-Val de Loire and Pays de la Loire Regions and the French State. It is also partly funded by the European Union. 

 

SITE MANAGEMENT


To ensure proper site management, the publisher may at any time:
-  suspend, interrupt or limit access to all or part of the site, reserve access to the site, or to some parts of the site, for a specified category of web users;
-  delete any information which may disrupt its functioning or breach national or international laws, or netiquette rules;
-  suspend the site in order to carry out updates.

 

APPLICABLE LAW


These terms and conditions for use of the website are governed by French law and subject to the jurisdiction of the courts of ORLEANS, subject to any specific award of jurisdiction resulting from a particular legal or regulatory text.  
In the event of any dispute, the parties agree to seek an amicable solution prior to taking it before the competent jurisdiction.
