Personal data protection charter for the customers and/or pupils of the esf

In the framework of the services that it proposes, the esf is required to collect your personal data.
This charter describes how the esf may use these data, in accordance with the provisions of the GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation of 25 May 2018).

1. Did you know?

esf instructors all work in a freelance capacity.
They form local groupings in their respective esf ski schools for organising teaching, supervision and activities involving skiing and other snow sports at the resorts.
For ensuring the defence of their interests they are also grouped together into Syndicats Locaux ("Local Trade Unions") which are legal entities. There is one Syndicat Local ("Local Trade Union") per resort.

The designation "Ecole du Ski Français" ("French Ski School") is authorised by the Syndicat National des Moniteurs du Ski Français (S.N.M.S.F. - "National Union of French Ski Instructors"), founded in 1945. The latter’s objective is to organise the profession by ensuring that instructors enjoy autonomy in their organisation and teaching.
When you are a recipient of esf services, your personal data are therefore processed both by the Syndicat Local and by the S.N.M.S.F., each acting as a processing manager pursuing its own ends.

In other words:
- The Syndicat Local processes your data for managing its contractual relations with you (invoicing, payment, bookings management, etc.), for the purpose of conducting marketing operations and to comply with its legal obligations.
- The S.N.M.S.F. processes your data since it manages the central bookings IT system enabling the Syndicats Locaux to collect the data required for organising the E.S.F. services.
The S.N.M.S.F. manages this IT system for the needs of CRM processing.
