Purpose and legal basis of the processing

Dec. 196/2003, or by parties delegated by it (specifically selected and possessing the necessary professional skills), with manual and computerized procedures, to enable the user to have a simple and gratifying browsing experience, to collect elements appropriate for improving the offer of products and services by means of the web, for executing specific requests by the party concerned, for fulfilling pre-contractual and contractual obligations, for the routine administrative, financial and accounting activities,  for ensuring proper management of customers during the marketing and sale of the products, for after-sales assistance, for fulfilment of legal obligations. Processing is also aimed at the processing of statistics in an anonymized or pseudonymized form.

At the request of the party concerned, or after obtaining specific consent, processing may also be done through CRM and customer care, for ascertaining the level of satisfaction, the tastes, the preferences and habits of the party concerned, for sending trade information or advertising material, for direct marketing campaigns, for participating in games, competitions or prize-winning operations, for involvement in events and shows, for providing services, for market research and other operations either directly or indirectly related to marketing activities.

The legal bases of the processing are the legitimate interest of the controller in managing the users' browsing data so as to improve the offer of products and services through the website, the consent given by the parties concerned and the obligations related to the pre-contractual and contractual phases of the relationship. In any case it is always possible to ask the Controller to clarify the concrete legal basis of each processing and, in particular, to specify whether the processing is based on the law, required by a contract, or needed to conclude a contract.

Sources and type of the data
Collection of the data may be done through the firm's website, by analysing browsing cancor by spontaneous insertion by the party concerned, using the special forms.
With regard to the registered user, the Controller does the processing of personal particulars, of phone and telematic contacts and of any banking data submitted for payments, as well as other data indispensable for meeting the requests of the parties concerned or for fulfilling obligations undertaken.
Provision is therefore obligatory since in the event that consent is not given or is cancelled processing cannot be done.
It should be pointed out that any erroneous or insufficient communication of the required data may result in total or partial impossibility of executing the requests of the party concerned or of performing the obligations related to the commitments undertaken, with possible consequent lack of compliance of the results of the processing with the agreements made or the obligations imposed by rules and regulations.
The other data, instead, are collected only for the purpose of adapting the promotional campaigns, the offers and, generally speaking, the firm's business, to meet the interests of the customer and of the other parties in any way involved. Their provision is therefore not obligatory, and any refusal of the processing or cancellation of the consent does not prejudice the establishment or prosecution of the main relationship.

Data of Minors
Persons under the age of 16 years may not supply data without the consent of the parent or of a guardian, if any.
The controller will in no way be responsible for any false statements given by minors and, if it ascertains the falsity of the statement, it will immediately delete every personal datum and any information acquired. In any case, consent to the processing of the data by minors more than sixteen years old is authorised for minors under eighteen years of age only for access to the services of the information company. In any case persons under the age of 18 may not approve and sign terms and conditions of service.

Browsing data
The IT system and the software used for the firm's web portal acquire, while working normally, some personal data the transmission of which is implicit in the use of the Internet communication products. This information is not stored for identifying the parties concerned but, due to its nature, it can, through processing and association with other data handled by third parties, permit identification of the user.
This category of data concerns the IP address and names in the domain of the computer used by the user for connecting to the site, the URL (Uniform Resource Locator) addresses of the required resource, the time of the request, the method used for sending the request to the server, the size of the file received, the numerical code used for indicating the status of the reply given by the server (done or error, etc.) and other parameters related to the operating system and the user's computer. These data are only used for creating anonymous statistics on the use of the site and for controlling its proper operation. They are normally deleted immediately after processing. They can be used and supplied to the police forces and the judiciary to ascertain the responsibility in the case of damage to the site or of offences perpetrated through the web.

Data provided by the user

In this way, with time, it is possible to improve the contents of the site and facilitate its use.
Firms that send contents to the site or whose sites are accessible by a link can also use the cookies when the user selects the related connection.
In these cases, the use of the cookies is not under the direct control of the Controller of the processing. Most browsers accept the cookies automatically, but it is possible to reject them or only select some, according to the preferences set by the user. However, if the user prevents the loading of the cookies, some parts of the site might stop working and some pages might be incomplete.

Sites of third parties
The site could, even only periodically, contain connections with the sites and applications of third parties (Widgets of Google Adwords, Analytics, Youtube, Vimeo, etc.), to provide the user with further services and information.

The newsletter is managed by software that uses a database of e-mail addresses for sending a communication to the registered users (through the appropriate section of the site) and that has an automatic cancellation procedure that the party concerned can use autonomously, recalled by every communication sent through that application.

Interaction with social networks and outside platforms
By means of widgets and buttons the site can interact with outside platforms and social networks. In that case the information acquired depends on the settings of the profiles used by the user on each social network and not by the administrator of this site.
The “Like” button of Facebook, “tweet” of Twitter”, “Recommend” of Linkedin, etc., make it possible to share the pages or subjects of the website with different social platforms and acquire data of the party concerned. More information can be obtained at the sites of the firms that offer the service.
