Give meaning to your ambitions: discover the new Quæst program


La tête chercheuse (“La tête chercheuse,” “we,” “our”) takes the protection of your personal information seriously.

Our Privacy Policy (the “Policy”) aims to explain how we collect, use, store, and disclose your personal information when you use our website or engage our services, and what your rights are in this regard. We also encourage you to review our Policies and practices governing the governance of personal information.

This policy applies to all information collected through our website as well as through all our services, such as sales, marketing, or related services like Facebook or LinkedIn.

This Policy does not apply to third-party websites, including those accessible by clicking on links that may be found on our website. We are not responsible for such sites. If you visit a third-party website, it will have its own policies that we encourage you to review before submitting your personal information, if applicable.

If you do not agree with this Policy, please do not use the website or our services.

La tête chercheuse reserves the right to change this Policy at any time without notice. The current version of the Policy is available on the website, and the effective date is indicated. If significant changes regarding privacy risks are made to the Policy, you will be notified through a notice prominently displayed on the homepage of the website. If you continue to use the website after such changes, you will be deemed to have accepted these changes. We recommend checking our Policy regularly.


In general terms, the term “personal information” refers to any information about an identifiable individual or information that can identify an individual. It could therefore include your name, email address, date of birth, and any other information that should be treated as “personal information” in accordance with applicable laws.

However, the concept of “personal information” generally does not include your business contact information, such as your job title, business address, or phone number.


Information is collected and used for various reasons, including:

  • To enable users to use the website and access it correctly and to conduct our operations successfully.
  • To process any requests or issues brought to our attention, including troubleshooting, assistance, optimization, and investigation of security incidents on the website or data recovery.
  • To assess, optimize, and improve the content and features of the website, as well as the characteristics of our services.
  • To communicate with you regarding a request you have made, your expression of interest in employment, the posting of a new service offering, or any communication such as newsletters.
  • To track your use of the website’s features.


When you access and use the website, the operating system and unique identifier of your device, IP address, access times, MAC address, location, and language may be automatically recorded.

La tête chercheuse may also collect certain usage data about your use of the website, such as the features used and sections visited, or other data to determine the operating system of the device you are using. None of the data collected in this way allows for your personal identification.

This information may be stored locally on the device you are using and shared with La tête chercheuse for the purpose of website analysis, statistics, profiling, and retargeted advertising to improve the website and its features. In some cases, it may be used to display promotional offers and advertisements on other websites.

Additionally, La tête chercheuse sometimes collects personal information that you voluntarily provide through the website when you respond to surveys or customer studies, agree to receive emails about our services, subscribe to our social media pages, purchase our services online, or apply for a position posted on our website or submit a spontaneous application. Please note that specific terms and a privacy policy apply to the services provided by La tête chercheuse. Your use of these services and the personal information you transmit through a La tête chercheuse service are governed by their applicable terms and privacy policy.

During your interactions with us, we may collect some of the following personal information:

  • Your personal contact details, such as your name, address, email, and phone number.
  • Recruitment-related information, such as your resume, current job title, or company.
  • Any other information you voluntarily provide.


In all cases, we strive to limit the amount of personal information we collect to what is strictly necessary for the purposes described in the section “For what purposes do we use your personal information ?“. We do not knowingly collect personal information from minors.


La tête chercheuse retains your personal information for a reasonable period to provide you with adequate access to the website, fully process a request, or achieve set objectives, or in accordance with legal provisions, whichever of these periods is longer.

Once personal information becomes unnecessary, we ensure its anonymity or delete it to ensure protection against unauthorized access or communication. If this is not possible (for example, if your personal information is stored in backup archives), we securely store it. Your personal information will be exempt from any further processing until its permanent deletion is possible.

Within La tête chercheuse, your personal information is only accessible to our employees, agents, and clients whose functions require it.

We never disclose your personal information to individuals outside La tête chercheuse without your approval, except in the following cases and only if these third parties have implemented protective measures ensuring a level of security equivalent to ours:

  • Our suppliers, whose services have been retained to perform certain functions on our behalf (e.g., data processing). La tête chercheuse takes necessary measures to ensure these suppliers process your information only for purposes determined by La tête chercheuse.
  • Any entity in the event of a merger, business reorganization, or change of control of La tête chercheuse, in whole or in part.
  • Any public authority if required by law, to defend our rights, or otherwise in accordance with the law. If La tête chercheuse must disclose information or provide a copy of this information to a government agency under a law or court order, La tête chercheuse will try to notify you in advance to the extent permitted by law.


In this latter case, we take necessary measures to adequately protect your personal information (e.g., by adopting specific contractual measures and limiting the sharing of your personal information).

Despite the above, we do not disclose any information protected by professional privilege unless you have waived this privilege, we have obtained your prior agreement, or we are obligated to do so under applicable law.

We do not sell any personal information to third parties. We use the collected information only for internal and advertising purposes, when applicable.
