MODE & PLACE OF PROCESSING DATA

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, etc.) or external parties (such as third-party technical service providers, mail carriers, hosting providers, IT companies, communications agencies, etc.) 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. This, however, does not apply, whenever the processing of personal data is subject to European data protection law;
  • 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 to clarify the specific legal basis that applies to the processing, and whether the provision of personal data is a statutory or contractual requirement, or a requirement necessary to enter into a contract.

PLACE

The data is processed at the owner’s operating offices and in any other places where the parties involved in the processing are located. 

Depending on the user’s location, data transfers may involve transferring the user’s data to a country other than their own. To find out more about the place of processing of such transferred data, users can check the section containing details about the processing of personal data. 

Users are also entitled to learn about the legal basis of data transfers to a country outside the European Union or to any international organization governed by public international law or set up by two or more countries, such as the UN, and about the security measures taken by the owner to safeguard their data.

If any such transfer takes place, users can find out more by checking the relevant sections of this document or inquire with the owner by using the information provided in the contact section.

RETENTION TIME

Personal data shall be processed and stored for as long as required by the purpose they have been collected for.

Therefore:

  • 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.

THE PURPOSES OF PROCESSING

The data concerning the user is collected to allow the owner to provide its service, comply with its legal obligations, respond to enforcement requests, protect its rights and interests (or those of its users or third parties), detect any malicious or fraudulent activity, as well as the following: Contacting the user, interaction with external social networks and platforms; analytics; displaying content from external platforms and tag management.

COOKIE POLICY

This document informs users about the technologies that help this website to achieve the purposes described below. Such technologies allow the owner to access and store information (for example by using a cookie) or use resources (for example by running a script) on a user’s device as they interact with this website.

For simplicity, all such technologies are defined as “trackers” within this document, unless there is a reason to differentiate.

For example, while cookies can be used on both web and mobile browsers, it would be inaccurate to talk about cookies in the context of mobile apps as they are a browser-based tracker. For this reason, within this document, the term cookies is only used where it is specifically meant to indicate that particular type of tracker.

Some of the purposes for which trackers are used may also require the user’s consent. Whenever consent is given, it can be freely withdrawn at any time following the instructions provided in this document.

This website uses trackers managed directly by the owner (so-called “first-party” trackers) and trackers that enable services provided by a third-party (so-called “third-party” trackers). Unless otherwise specified within this document, third-party providers may access the trackers managed by them.

The validity and expiration periods of cookies and other similar trackers may vary depending on the lifetime set by the owner or the relevant provider. Some of them expire upon termination of the user’s browsing session.

In addition to what’s specified in the descriptions within each of the categories below, users may find more precise and updated information regarding lifetime specification as well as any other relevant information, such as the presence of other trackers, in the linked privacy policies of the respective third-party providers or by contacting the pwner.
