  • Data confidentiality

Ethical conduct lies at the heart of the work of an IP Attorney (activity carried out within a legal and ethical framework: French Intellectual Property Code, Book IV – Art.L.421-1 et seq., and Internal Rules of the French National Association of Industrial Property Attorneys) and one of the main principles of ethical conduct is confidentiality. We pledge to uphold this ethical principle, which is the cornerstone of our profession and how we operate:


  • we systematically sign strict NDAs with our subcontractors and partners;
  • we have included the duty of confidentiality in the MIIP – Made In IP IT Charter (updated April 2018)
  • we have incorporated appropriate confidentiality clauses into the employment contracts signed with our employe

  • Extranet: access via username and confidential password – SSL certificate & encryption of extranet access;
  • Data passing on the miip.fr site is encrypted before being sent over the Internet. Encryption makes it very difficult for unauthorised persons to view the page while it is in transit between computers.
  • Ultra-secure hosting: a secure data centre + a server hosted in an access-controlled and monitored room in France.
  • Data backup
    • Data is automatically backed up on a separate server also located in France
