Legal basis - The personal data processed is essential for the execution of the agreement to make the Cashless Service functionalities available through the creation of this personal account. The purchase of products on the Circuit's website is not conditional upon the use of the Cashless Service or the creation of a personal account since payments can also be made by bank card or cash or via a Cashless card issued by the Circuit but not linked to a personal account. Thus, the Cashless service is a facility offered to the Circuit's Clients. You freely decide to create such an account which implies the processing of your data by the Circuit.

Categories of data - This may include your full name, email address, username, password and possibly your cashless card number if you decide to link one or more cards to your account. All these data are essential. Without it, we cannot create an account for you or allow you to benefit from the features offered by that account. This data may be collected when you create your account on the Circuit website or mobile application. This data may also be collected when you contact us by e-mail, telephone or post regarding the cashless service.

Data recipients - Your data may be processed by our website host, our IT service provider and our payment service providers for the purposes strictly necessary to comply with the instructions we give them.

Duration - We are obliged to retain billing data until our tax and accounting obligations expire, which is 7 full fiscal years from the 1st January of the financial year following the date of purchase of our products or delivery of our services. Data may also be retained for 10 years for contractual liability purposes. Use of your Cashless account.

Categories of data - When your account is created and linked to a Cashless card where applicable, you will find your transaction history, your balance and your receipts. Purposes: We process this data in order to display it on your Cashless account. This is necessary to allow you to access all this information centrally. You can also request invoices for purchases made via the Cashless service via your account or deactivate your card in the event of loss or theft. We also process your data in order to respond to various enquiries sent to regarding any malfunctioning of the Cashless Service that you may experience.

Legal basis - The personal data processed for this purpose are essential for the performance of the agreement. In addition, the same data may be processed for the purpose of controlling the use of the account and preventing fraud. This purpose is based on the legitimate interest of the Circuit to prevent fraud.

Recipients of the data - This data may be passed on to the judicial authorities in the event of fraud or other offences. Your data may also be processed by subcontractors such as the host of our website, by the host and provider of our IT services and by several payment service providers, for the purposes strictly necessary to comply with the instructions we give them.

Duration - We are obliged to retain billing data until our tax and accounting obligations expire, which is 7 full fiscal years from the 1st January of the financial year following the date of purchase of our products or delivery of our services. Data may also be retained for 10 years for contractual liability purposes.


The consumption data of Clients using the Cashless Service may be used by the Circuit for statistical purposes. In this case, the data is aggregated and anonymised and therefore no longer constitutes personal data.


Purpose - Your personal data is processed to enable you to benefit from the wifi that we provide free of charge when you are on the Circuit site in order to display the Cashless QR Codes in the mobile application.

Legal basis - Our legitimate interest in protecting our computer network and cooperating with the judicial authorities allows us to process your data to secure the wifi connection provided and to store your connection data.

Purposes - When you exercise your right to deletion or request the deletion of your personal account on the website or on the application, the Circuit keeps the data necessary to prove that the deletion has taken place. This data retention is for evidentiary purposes only and contains only the data strictly necessary to establish proof of the deletion.

Legal basis - The retention of evidence of deletion is based on the legal obligation imposed by Article 5.2 of the GDPR, namely the duty of accountability. This provision is the basis for a legal obligation within the meaning of Article 17 of the RGPD which can justify an exception to the total erasure of data. The retention of this data is also justified by the legitimate interest of the Circuit in providing evidence of compliance with its legal obligations under the RGPD.

Data categories - These are your name, surname, deletion request, date of actual deletion and deletion logs of the data in the database.

Recipient of the data - The data in the deletion register is not passed on to any recipient other than the data protection supervisory authority. Duration - Your data will be retained for as long as the Circuit is liable for non-compliance with erasure requests, i.e. for a maximum of 10 years.
