personal data

Renault Group continues to ensure compliance with regulations on the protection of personal data and puts it at the heart of its ethics, as described in its Group Personal Data Protection Policy available at:

Indeed, Renault Group believes that personal data protection is essential for building a relationship of trust with its customers. As such, it intends to ensure the greatest transparency in the personal data processing that it carries out on the personal data that its customers provide or that it collects through the various contacts its customers may have with it.

The purpose of this information policy is to provide you with detailed information about the conditions for the processing of your personal data by Renault Group, as well as the rights and options available to you to control your personal data and protect your privacy.



    Renault Group is an international group:

    • Bringing together the Renault, Dacia, Alpine and Renault Samsung Motors brands,
    • Composed of different legal entities in France and abroad, responsible in particular for manufacturing, distributing vehicles and parts, marketing related services such as connected services, maintenance, warranty and financing,
    • And whose parent company is Renault SAS in France, at 122-122 bis avenue du Général Leclerc, 92100 Boulogne-Billancourt.

    Renault Group also relies on a network of authorised distributors to sell the vehicles of its brands and related products and services.

    Renault Group companies and/or its network of distributors may be required to collect and process personal data about you. Their responsibility for processing your personal data varies depending on the Group company or distributor network with which you share your personal data, and their role in the various services or products provided. For the purposes of this document, "we" or "Renault" refers to Renault SAS and its network of distributors, including Retail Renault Group.

    In general, the following are joint controllers within the meaning of the applicable personal data regulations:

    • Renault SAS. The contact details for its Data Protection Officer are as follows: Renault SAS, Legal Department - Data Protection Officer, 122-122 bis avenue du Général Leclerc, 92100 Boulogne-Billancourt.
    • and members of its network the list and contact details of which are available on the website.

    In some cases, Renault SAS may process your personal data as an independent controller. Furthermore, Retail Renault Group can process your personal data in its sole capacity as data controller.



    "Personal data" shall mean any information that can be used to identify you either directly (such as your name) or indirectly (e.g. using a unique customer number).

    Generally speaking, we undertake to collect only the personal data necessary for each of the purposes for which we process your personal data.

    The personal data we collect depends on our interaction with you and may include information about:

    • Your identity and your contact details (surname, first name, postal address, email address, telephone, etc.),
    • Data related to your personal and/or professional situation (family situation, socio-professional category, etc.),
    • Your payment and transaction data (payment type, discount granted, etc.),
    • Data relating to our commercial relationship, in particular our interaction and contracts (order history, after-sales operations, service agreements, competitions, interactions with our call centre, etc.),
    • Your vehicle identification data (brand, model, registration, VIN number, etc.),
    • Your geolocation data (your consent is obtained when required by regulations),
    • Data related to the use of the vehicle (mileage, journey, use of multimedia, etc.) and, where applicable, its battery (charge level, etc.),
    • If you have a connected vehicle, data allowing control of the vehicle and, where applicable, its battery (locking/unlocking, pre-conditioning, battery charge programming, etc.), relating to driving mode (use of controls, acceleration, braking, etc.) or to the provision of connected services or on-board applications,
    • Data needed to carry out loyalty, canvassing, market research or survey actions (e.g. your vehicle preferences),
    • Data relating to your digital profiles (online accounts),
    • Data concerning the use of our websites and mobile apps, as well as our communications (number of visits, page visited, messages opened, etc.).

    As such, the data required to respond to your request or meet the needs of a contract or legal obligation is pointed out in the collection forms (in particular by asterisks). If you do not wish to provide the mandatory data, we may not be able to process your request or provide you with the relevant services. The other information is intended to get to know you better, in particular to send you customised advertisements. This information is thus optional.

    We encourage you to keep us regularly informed in writing of any changes to your personal data.

    The products and services that we offer are primarily for adults. Therefore, we do not carry out any specific processing on minors.



    We provide explanations on why your data is collected, the purposes for which we process it and how long we keep it.

      C - Manage services provided by your connected vehicle and on-board applications

      Some connected services or on-board applications that you have subscribed to use services offered by Google to provide you with map data or points of interest in your vehicle or on your smartphone. You can get more information about the processing of your personal data that Google may implement, by consulting its privacy policy accessible at the following address
      When we send you messages on your vehicle's screen, our aim is to inform you of the end of one of your service agreements and to suggest that you renew it.
      Some connected services and on-board applications may require the processing of your location data. Your consent is requested before the data is processed. You can revoke your consent and suspend this processing at any time.
      For some electric vehicles, when you connect your phone to your vehicle, your mobile phone number will be requested to send you notifications regarding the charge status of your battery. You can manage the terms and conditions of receipt of notifications and choose not to receive them in the "My notifications" tab.
      We are committed to respecting your privacy, but we remind you that it is your responsibility to inform any other user or purchaser of the vehicle about the conditions for processing their data by Renault.


      D - Carry out studies and analyses

      E - Manage our marketing operations

      We analyse the personal data of our customers and prospects. This includes both the data they have provided to us directly (including data related to browsing on our websites and the use of our mobile applications, subject to consent) and data from third parties (subject to consent where necessary). These analyses allow us to create algorithms that enable us to assess and/or predict their potential interests and preferences for our products and services (using scores and segmentation).
      These analyses are intended to provide you with personalised content, such as specific offers by email, content on our websites or third-party websites, etc. For example, processing of this data may lead us to send you offers relating to the car segment likely to be of interest to you. This also enables us to not send you advertising offers if we understand that they will not match your interests.
      The use of such tools is defined by the regulations as profiling. We believe it is in our legitimate interests to understand the preferences of our customers and prospects in order to provide them with content that meets their needs or desires. We have weighed up the respective interests and have put in place measures to ensure that your fundamental rights and freedoms are not breached.
      You can obtain more information on this point on request. If you do not want us to send you offers based on profiling, you can object to them by referring to the "how to exercise your rights" section.


    5. The length of time for which we keep your data
    6. In accordance with the regulations, we are committed to keeping your personal data only for the time necessary to achieve the objective pursued, to meet your needs, or to meet our legal obligations.

      In determining this time, we take into account, in particular, the following:

      • The length of your contract,
      • The time required to process your request or complaint,
      • The length of time your user account has been open, unless it has been inactive for 3 years,
      • Your interest in our brands,
      • The need to keep a record of your interactions with us, to effectively manage our business relationship. This period will vary depending, in particular, on whether you have bought a vehicle or a service such as repair, or whether you have only interacted with us without entering into contracts with us,
      • Our legal or regulatory obligations (this is particularly the case for the technical data of our vehicles).

      When we no longer need to use your personal data, it is deleted from our systems and records or made anonymous so that we can no longer identify you. However, it may be necessary to archive some of your personal data in order to be able to respond to any legal proceedings, throughout the prescription period provided for in the applicable legislation.


  8. Within Renault Group and its network members, we ensure that only those people who are duly authorised to process your personal data for their functions and tasks are allowed access.

    We may also share your personal data with other companies in Renault Group such as Renault MAI, in charge of mobility activities (such as car sharing), or subsidiaries offering financial services, such as RCI Banque SA, subject to your consent when required by the regulations. These entities may act as data controller, in accordance with their personal data protection policy, or as processor, to perform tasks according to the instructions we give them.

    In order to process all or part of your personal data, we call upon trusted third-party providers acting as processors in accordance with our instructions and solely on our behalf, including:

    • Hosting, operation or maintenance of our databases, websites and mobile applications,
    • Provision of authentication services,
    • Customer relations management (call centres, communication tools, etc.)
    • Provision of services relating to our marketing, including the sending of commercial offers,
    • Organisation of competitions and events,
    • Performance of studies and surveys.

    For all of this data sharing, we ensure that we only work with trusted companies and secure these relationships (contracts, audits, guarantees and security tests, etc.).

    In some cases, we may share some of your personal data with partners, who will use this data for their own purposes. In such a case, these partners shall act as data controllers and their personal data processing policy shall apply to the data shared. We make sure to ask you for your consent to this sharing when required by the regulations, or at least to enable you to object.

    We may also offer you the opportunity to use your social network login data. Please be aware that, in this case, you are sharing your profile information with us. The personal data shared depends on the configuration of the social network platform. Please note that these social networks apply their own privacy policies.

    Lastly, we may be required to communicate your personal data to third parties in order to comply with a legal obligation (e.g. to recover a traffic fine following a test drive) or an administrative or legal decision.

You may change or delete these guidelines at any time. You may share these special guidelines with us by writing to the address below.

      Lastly, you have the right to lodge a complaint with the French data protection authority (CNIL - Commission Nationale de l’Informatique et des Libertés) regarding the processing of your personal data. We encourage you to contact us prior to any claim, so that we may attempt to resolve your problem together.

      You have the right to register free of charge on the Bloctel opt-out list, managed by Opposetel, to no longer receive unsolicited sales or marketing calls. However, registration on this list does not prohibit us from contacting you for marketing purposes during the term of your agreement with us, unless you have specifically exercised your right of opposition to no longer receive commercial offers from us.


  11. Your personal data is stored on secure servers. We implement appropriate data security and data protection measures in line with the latest technologies, and require the same from our sub-contractors and partners.
    When data processing involves transferring personal data, we ensure that this transfer is carried out under appropriate conditions that ensure an adequate level of protection, security and confidentiality.

    When a digital account is created, entering a password that respects our security standards is mandatory and is part of our privacy policy. It is your responsibility to keep it secret.

    Whenever possible, your data is processed in the European Economic Area (EEA). However, as some of our service providers or their processors are located in countries outside of the EEA, your personal data may be processed in those countries. Some of these countries may have different personal data regulations from those of the European Union. In such a case, (i) we pay particular attention to ensuring that this transfer is carried out in accordance with the applicable regulations, and (ii) we put in place safeguards ensuring an adequate level of protection of your data (in particular by using the European Commission's standard contractual clauses). Upon simple request to the address indicated in the "What are your rights" section, we can provide you with more information on such transfers (in particular the European Commission's standard contractual clauses).

This version also provides more transparency about the recipients of your personal data, within or outside our group.
