Interview of Pierre BARTEL, CEO ofAudito
  • Editorial Committee: Where would you situate your company's innovation?

Pierre BARTEL (PB): The Data-processing Law and Freedoms applied to the cookies (small files recorded on your hard drive and allowing to trace you on Internet to establish a profile of consumer and to propose targeted publicity to you) are badly respected in France. Banners of warning are often seen, but those do not block the installation of the cookies and one in general gives you no simple way control them. Future European law GDPR will oblige in 2018 the editors of sites to the real respect of the rights of the Net surfers as regards private life, in particular by founding very dissuasive fines and without preliminary formal notice.

  • EC: How did you go about developing your project?

PB: At the time of the sale of my company, I called upon a lawyer to check his lawful conformity, and we realized at the time this regulation was very known little about, seldom applied and that there did not exist software offer making it possible to really conform to waitings of the CNIL. We thus did it!

  • EC: What actions and deployments are currently in the pipeline?

PB: We spent much time to analyze the behavior of the cookies (there are thousands!) and to develop our management software (two years of development) in a technical environment complexes and very little documented. We currently start our commercial prospection by centering our speech on the necessary preparation of the companies to the GDPR, in their suggesting starting with easiest, the window of their company, i.e. their website.

  • EC: Why did you join the SCS Cluster?

PB: Primarily to have visibility near the companies high-tech of the area, with an aim of finding synergies, alliances and of course of suggesting our solutions to them. We also wished to meet actors and members of the SCS Cluster in order to make known to us.

  • EC: Has the SCS Cluster brought you what you were looking for?

PB: To date, the SCS Cluster enabled us to be held with the current of the various meetings that it organizes and to take part in those in order to profit of more than visibility and to exchange with other companies. Moreover, the SCS Cluster communicates much on its members and relayed our activity, like some of our post on their social networks, which is very positive for our company.

  • EC: What do you expect of the Cluster in the future?

PB: It is primarily a question of making known to us near the members of the SCS Cluster. In this sector, they are generally well with the current of the challenges of the GDPR and in research solution simple, effective and especially which ensure lawful peace necessary to them to their development.
