1 - Presentation of the data you transmit directly to us and their processing
By using our website, you are required to provide us directly with information, some of which may identify you. We explain here in which hypotheses and for which purpose.
This is particularly the case in the following cases:
1.1 - When you create your personal account
We collect your email address and provide you with a password that will allow you to log in to our site at any time.
In order to continue the process efficiently you can configure your account and also inform:
- Your first and last name;
- Your telephone number;
- Your postal address;
- The members of your household;
- Your biography.
1.2 - To help us help you find the ideal place to live
You fill in your criteria:
- Your desired surface area for your accommodation;
- Your budget;
- Your frequent trips;
- Your preferences in terms of proximity to activities (education, health,…).
These elements allow our algorithms to effectively recommend the neighbourhoods where you live that meet your needs and expectations.
These elements (but not your contact details) may also be used by us for statistical purposes to assess demand and needs. These statistical results can be communicated to planners, real estate developers, real estate appraisers, or architects, in order to identify the areas where the need for housing is greatest and to be able to present a better offer that meets expectations.
If you do not provide this information, or only partially, you will not be able to benefit from our services in an optimal way.
1.3 - If one of our projects interests you and you decide to join it
You click on the “I customize my home” tab on the page of the project you are interested in.
This allows you to configure your ideal home. The data collected are described below in the following paragraph.
1.4 - When you configure your home
You configure your home when you fill in all the information you want for the home of your dreams. Thanks to the information provided by you during the configuration of your property, we can propose to the project owner of the project that interests you a programming compatible with your needs and thus allow the project architect to design a property that corresponds as closely as possible to your expectations.
This data also allows us to determine if you are eligible for the reduced VAT rate, if applicable.
The data are:
- The ideal surface for your home;
- The maximum price desired for your accommodation;
- If the dwelling will be your principal residence;
- The number and type of parts you want;
- The format of the accommodation you are interested in (house, apartment,…)…;
- The exhibitions you want for your future home;
- The floor where you want to live;
- The outdoor spaces you would like to benefit from;
- The number of parking spaces;
- The type of spaces you would like to share with the inhabitants of the building;
- For some projects, the privileged location and interior layout of your future home.
The criteria provided (but not your contact information) may be used by us for statistical purposes to assess demand and needs. These statistical results can be shared with planners, real estate developers, real estate appraisers, or architects, so that they too can rethink the way they live.
In addition, if we identify a project that better meets your needs, we will then send you information about that other project.
In any case, your personal data are not transferred for commercial transfer purposes.

- The configuration you want for your future home;
- Your budget.
This makes it possible to validate your application and work on a proposal for a plan that could correspond to the wishes you have expressed.

We then ask you to provide all the necessary information to prepare your reservation contract for the purchase of your accommodation.

- Your contact details;
- Your income;

We place cookies on your computer, which allow you to:
