a.      Browsing data: we can collect information on the services displayed and / or used by the User, as well as on how to use them (for example when the User interacts with our content).

These data, necessary for the use of web services, are also processed for the purpose of:
  • To obtain statistical information on the use of services (most visited pages, number of visitors by time or day, geographical areas of origin, etc.);
  • To check the correct functioning of the services offered.

The navigation data do not persist for more than seven days and are canceled immediately after their aggregation (except for any need for the investigation of crimes by the Judicial Authority).


b.      Cookies and similar technologiesOur Website use different technologies to collect and store information when one of our services is visited. This could include the use of cookies and/or similar technologies to identify the User's browser or device; we also use these technologies to collect and store information when the User interacts and/or purchases our services and/or the services of our partners. For more information, visit our Cookie Policy.
c.       Data provided by the User through the use of the Website features: Some sections of the Website (information request / contacts / contact us) provide for the compilation of some personal data by the User. In this case, the lawfulness of the treatment derives from the consent given by the interested party at the time of the free conferment of their data, through an unequivocal affirmative action (clicking an opt-in box). The data will be processed exclusively for the purpose of responding to User’s requests. The provision of data is necessary in order to fully and correctly respond to requests. The data will be stored for periods compatible with the purpose of the collection and subsequently deleted. The data may be disclosed to third parties only when it is functional to give correct feedback to the interested party. The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of electronic mail to the addresses indicated on the Website entails the subsequent acquisition of the sender's address, as well as any other personal data included in the message. These data will be used exclusively to respond to requests. In this case the lawfulness of the processing derives from the consent given by the interested party at the time of the free conferment of his own data, in own and already unequivocal positive action. If it is considered appropriate to provide further information, in addition to this, specific summary information will be progressively reported or displayed on the pages of the Website set up for particular services upon request.

d.      Data use for promotional purposes: The Website allows the User to be constantly updated about new offered products, promotions and/or offers through the User's email communication (correlated by the relative consent to the processing for marketing purposes). Only with the express consent of the User, the Website may use the personal provided information which is non-compulsory to send personalized promotional communications. The provision of data for Marketing purposes is optional: The User could therefore decide not to grant any data or subsequently to deny the possibility of processing data already provided; in this case, he may not receive newsletters, commercial communications and advertising material relating to the services offered by the Data Controller. The information collected for this purpose will be kept for 24 months.

e.      Registration on the Website: it takes place by creating a profile (which is associated with a user name and a password chosen by the user) linked to the user's e-mail address; the provision of data is not mandatory, but it is strictly essential for the conclusion of the registration and to be able to use the services reserved for registered users, therefore, a refusal to communicate such data is equivalent to the impossibility to complete the registration. The personal data communicated and not strictly necessary for registration will be used for statistical analysis and profiling, as well as to improve the service offered by the Website. The information collected for this purpose will be kept until the user requests cancellation.
f.       Registration and online purchases: The data that we request to insert in our online store through various forms to be filled out, are collected in order to finalize the purchase operations (products and/or services for post-service assistance) that can be placed in our Website. To conclude the transactions, only personal information such as name, surname, shipping address, billing address will be required; the obligatory fields are marked with the symbol *. Other personal data such as mobile or landline numbers are not considered as obligatory; however, they may be useful to allow us to provide the best possible assistance. Any refusal to send us own fixed personal data during registration will make it impossible for the holder to complete the purchase transactions. The information collected for this purpose will be kept until the User’s request of cancellation. Invoicing data will be stored within the legal term period (10 years). If the User applies the personal profile to make purchases, the legal basis is the need to fulfill the obligations of a contract or pre-contract of which the involved User is a part (art. 6.1b). In the case of purchase without registration, the legal basis is the legitimate interest of the data controller (Article 6.1f). In all other cases, explicit consent will be requested to the interested party on which the legal basis for processing will be related (Article 6.1a).
