methods of processing
the owner takes appropriate security measures to prevent unauthorized access, disclosure, modification, or unauthorized destruction of the data. the data processing is carried out using computers and/or IT enabled tools, following organizational procedures and modes strictly related to the purposes indicated. In addition to the owner, in some cases, the data may be accessible to certain types of persons in charge, involved with the operation of this website (administration, sales, marketing, legal, system administration) or external parties (such as third-party technical service providers, mail carriers, hosting providers, IT companies, communications agencies) appointed, if necessary, as data processors by the owner. the updated list of these parties may be requested from the owner at any time.
legal basis of processing
the owner may process personal data relating to users if one of the following applies:
users have given their consent for one or more specific purposes.
note: under some legislations the owner may be allowed to process personal data until the user objects to such processing (“opt-out”), without having to rely on consent or any other of the following legal bases.
provision of data is necessary for the performance of an agreement with the user and/or for any pre-contractual obligations thereof;
processing is necessary for compliance with a legal obligation to which the owner is subject;
processing is related to a task that is carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the owner;
processing is necessary for the purposes of the legitimate interests pursued by the owner or by a third party.
in any case, the owner will gladly help clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing, and in particular whether the provision of personal data is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract.
personal data shall be processed and stored for as long as required by the purpose they have been collected for:
personal data collected for purposes related to the performance of a contract between the owner and the user shall be retained until such contract has been fully performed.
personal data collected for the purposes of the owner’s legitimate interests shall be retained as long as needed to fulfill such purposes. users may find specific information regarding the legitimate interests pursued by the owner within the relevant sections of this document or by contacting the owner.
the owner may be allowed to retain personal data for a longer period whenever the user has given consent to such processing, as long as such consent is not withdrawn. furthermore, the owner may be obliged to retain personal data for a longer period whenever required to do so for the performance of a legal obligation or upon order of an authority.
once the retention period expires, personal data shall be deleted. therefore, the right to access, the right to erasure, the right to rectification and the right to data portability cannot be enforced after expiration of the retention period.
