3. Purposes and legal bases of the processing

Users’ Personal Data are collected and processed for purposes strictly related to the use, management and updating of the Site, the services offered within it and their presentation to Users (so-called Service Purposes). The specific purposes of data use are detailed in this paragraph.

(a) Use, maintenance and improvement of the services offered by the Site.
Users’ personal data are processed to ensure access to the main areas and functionalities of the Site, and in particular to:

  • enable normal and efficient enjoyment and maintenance of the Site; and
  • – improve its performance and operation.

The processing of data related to the provision of Site services and the operation of the Site does not require the consent of Users, as it is necessary for the performance of a contract between Users and the Company as well as to properly fulfill legal obligations to which the Data Controller is subject. The processing of Data for purposes of maintenance and improvement of the operation of the Site does not require the consent of the Users, as it is necessary for the pursuit of the legitimate interest of the Company and the Users in the provision of a high quality service as well as to prevent any malfunctions likely to affect the proper operation of the Site itself.

In connection with this purpose, Users’ Data may be processed by the Company for the exercise of the Controller’s rights in court and the management of litigation, as well as the prevention and suppression of unlawful acts: the Controller’s interest corresponds to the constitutionally guaranteed right of action (Art. 24 Const.) and, as such, is socially recognized as overriding the interests of the individual data subject.

(b) Contacts
Where the User sends the Company a request for information by filling out the appropriate computer form, his or her data will be processed in order to adequately handle the requests received and, where necessary, to re-contact the Users concerned.

The processing of data for this purpose does not require the consent of the Users, as it is necessary for the execution of pre-contractual measures taken at the User’s request.

4. Providing

With the exception of the data that is automatically collected to make browsing possible, some of the information requested on the Site may be marked as “mandatory” – for example, if marked with an asterisk (*) – as it is necessary to access the services offered by the Company through the Site (e.g., if you choose to send an information request using the appropriate web form).

Failure to provide the data marked as “mandatory” will result in the inability of the Data Controller to provide the requested service. Failure to provide the data marked as “optional” will not preclude access to the services offered by the Site; however, it may affect the quality or mode of delivery of the service offered or the functionality you intend to use.

Users are required to indicate on the Site only the personal data concerning them. Where personal data of third parties are indicated, Users must expressly declare and acknowledge that they have obtained the consent of third parties for the processing of the corresponding personal data by the Company, or other data controllers.

Some sections of the Site contain free-fill forms to allow Users to personalize and/or provide more information regarding their requests: please do not enter in such spaces personal data that are not functional to the request and/or other data belonging to special categories (such as, for example, data related to health), with the warning that, should they be indicated, they will be immediately deleted.

5. Methods of processing

The processing of the Users’ Personal Data is carried out, by computerized means, by means of the operations of collection, recording, organization, storage, consultation, processing, modification, selection, extraction, comparison, use, interconnection, blocking, communication, cancellation and destruction of the data. The Data are processed in compliance with applicable regulations and are protected in such a way as to minimize the risk of destruction, loss (including accidental loss), unauthorized access/use or use incompatible with the purposes of collection.

6. Data Retention

The Data Controller will process Personal Data for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes set out in § 3 above and in accordance with any consents provided. At the end of the retention period, the data will be destroyed or anonymized. Specifically, the Data will be retained for the Purposes of Service, for no longer than 10 years from the collection, and in any case for the time of prescription by law, of the Data (subject to the Cookie Policy regarding Data collected through cookies).

7. Recipients of the Data – Access and Communication

These subjects have been adequately selected.
    The updated list of data processors, data processors and system administrators is kept at the Data Controller’s office.

Users’ Data may also be disclosed, for the above purposes, to third parties (e.g., legal consultants) who will process the data as autonomous data controllers, as well as to public administrations or competent authorities, control bodies, law enforcement agencies, and judicial and administrative authorities, at their express request or for the detection and prosecution of crimes, the prevention and safeguarding against threats to public safety, or to enable the Company to ascertain, exercise or defend a right of its own in court.
