This notice takes account of the provisions of the GDPR and the Privacy Code (Legislative Decree No.196 of June 30,2003). The document was also drafted based on the Privacy Guarantor's Guidelines (especially the Counter Spam Guidelines issued by the Privacy Guarantor on July 4, 2013).

The Data Controller has also appointed a DPO (Data Protection Officer), to monitor the Data Controller's compliance with the GDPR.

GENERAL INFORMATION

This document describes how the Data Controller processes your personal data provided on the Site.

The main processing of your personal data is described below. In particular, the legal basis of the processing, whether the provision is mandatory, and the consequences of not providing personal data are explained. To best describe your rights, if necessary, we have specified if and when a certain processing of personal data is not carried out. On the Site you have the possibility to enter personal data of the third parties. In this case, you guarantee that you have obtained consent from these parties to the inclusion of these personal data. Therefore, you agree to indemnify and hold the Data Controller harmless from any liability.

Site Registration

The information and data requested in the case of registration will be used to enable you both to access the restricted area of the Site and to use the online services offered by the Data Controller to registered users. The legal basis for the processing is the Data Controller's need to execute pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the data subject. The provision of data is optional. However, your refusal to provide the data will result in the inability to register on the Site. You can also register on the Site using external services. In this case, your registration information will be shared with the companies of these external services for the sole purpose of allowing you to register on the Site. The legal basis for this processing is the legitimate interest of the Data Controller in enabling registration to the Site through external services. The provision of the personal data for this purpose is purely optional. However, failure to consent to the processing of data will result in the inability to register via external services.

Purchasing on the Site

Your personal data will be processed to enable you to make purchases on the Site. In the case of placing an online purchase order, to enable the conclusion of the purchase contract and the proper execution of transactions related thereto (and, where necessary under industry regulations, to fulfill tax obligations). The legal basis for the processing is the obligation of the Data Controller to perform the contract with the data subject or to fulfill legal obligations. Regardless of the above 8and therefore of your consent), the Data Controller may process your data purposes of so-called "soft-spam", governed by Article 130 of the Privacy Code. This means that limited to the email that you provide in the context of a purchase through the Site, the Data Controller will process the email to enable direct offers from similar products/services, unless you object to such processing in the manner set forth in this policy. The legal basis for the processing is the legitimate interest of the Data Controller in sending these types of communications. This legitimate interest can be considered equivalent to the data subject's interest in receiving "soft-spam" communications. The Data Controller may send emails to remind the user to complete a purchase. The legal basis for this processing is the legitimate interest of the Data Controller to send this type of communication.

Responding to your requests

Your data will be processed to respond to your inquiries. Providing it is optional, but your refusal will make it impossible for the Data Controller to answer your questions. The legal basis for the processing is the legitimate interest of the Data Controller in fulfilling your request. This legitimate interest is equivalent to the user's interest in receiving responses to communications sent to the Data Controller.

General marketing

Subject to your consent, the Data Controller may process the personal data you provide for the purpose of sending you advertising material and/or newsletters relating to its own or third party products. The legal basis for this processing is your consent. The provision of personal data for this purpose is purely optional. Failure to consent to the processing of data for marketing purposes will result in the impossibility for you to receive advertising material relating to products/services of the Data Controller and/or third parties as well as the impossibility for the Data Controller to carry out market surveys, also aimed at assessing the degree of user satisfaction, as well as to send you newsletters. The sending of these communications will take place to the email you have given on the Site. 

Profiling

Subject to your consent, the Data Controller may process your personal data for profiling purposes, i.e. for the analysis of your consumption choices through the revelation of the type and frequency of your purchases, in order to send you advertising material and/or newsletters related to its own or third-party products of your specific interest. The legal basis for this processing is your consent. The provision of data for this purpose is merely optional. Failure to consent to the processing of your personal data for profiling purposes will result in the impossibility for the Data Controller to elaborate your commercial profile, through the detection of your purchasing choices and habits as well as to send you advertising material, related to products of the Data Controller and/or third-parties, of your specific interest. These communications will be sent to the email you gave on the Site.

Data transfer

The Data Controller does not transfer your personal data to third parties.

Geolocation

If you access the Site you may receive a notification on your device (landline and/or mobile) that will give you the option to allow or disallow the location of that device (so-called geolocation). You will be free to allow or deny this setting, without substantial changes to the functionality of the Site. You may change your geolocation settings at any time through your device settings. The legal basis for the processing is the legitimate interest of the Data Controller in providing services relevant to your location. This legitimate interest is equal to the user's interest in receiving services as relevant to their location as possible.

Disclosure of personal data

In the ordinary course of its business, the Data Controller may communicate your personal data to certain categories of subjects. In Article 2 you can find the list of subjects to whom the Data Controller communicates your personal data. To facilitate the protection of your rights, Article 2 may specify in certain cases when your data is not disclosed to third parties.

"Communication" of personal data to third parties is different from "transfer" (regulated in the preceding point). In fact, in communication the third party to whom the data is transmitted can use it only for the specific purposes described in the relationship with the Data Controller. In the transfer, on the other hand, the third party becomes an autonomous Data Controller of the personal data. Moreover, to transfer your personal data to a third party, your consent is always required. 

Notwithstanding the foregoing, it is understood that the Data Controller may still use your personal data to properly fulfill its obligations under applicable laws.
