Type of treatment
Your personal data are treated manually, but also electronically, mainly through the use of automated processes, depending on the objectives. In this case, we specifically use databases and computerised platforms that may be managed by both us and third parties. Each type of treatment guarantees the respect and the confidentiality of the data treated. We store such data and general information in the database and in the servers as logfiles. In order to provide you with a unique navigation experience, we need to collect some technical data that are necessary for the correct operation of the website:
- Browser type and browser version
- Operating system
- The „referrer“ website
- The on our website linked webpages
- Date and time of access
- IP address
- Other similar data and information
The legal basis for this type of treatment is article 6 of the GDPR. By accessing the website, computerised systems and management software automatically and indirectly collect and/or manage this number of data and information.
At first, the collection of these data in anonymous format is static. However, later on the data are treated to ensure a high level of protection and safety for any data that we collect.
Period of data conservation
In compliance with current laws, the owner of the treatment has defined different periods of data conservation depending on their usage:
1.) As far as handling and answering your questions about products and activities, your personal data will be stored for a period of time strictly necessary for processing your request.
2.) As far as managing activities connected with the navigation through our website, your personal data will be stored for a period of time strictly necessary to satisfy your requests.

4.) As far as the handling of disputes and litigations, your personal data will be stored for the whole time strictly necessary for pursuing such matters, and in any case not beyond the applicable prescription limits.
Collaboration with third parties
When we work with our suppliers and use third-party services, we make sure that they are contractually obliged to apply the same privacy/safety standards that we apply, and that such standards are also followed. Such third parties, who act as owners of the treatment of the personal data, guarantee that the data received are not stored and used for purposes other than the contractually agreed. Within the framework of these technical agreements, the mail addresses made available to them are encrypted using technologies such as “hashing”, so that any other parties are unable to obtain the original addresses.
It may happen that we need to transfer your data to third parties in Non-European Countries (EEC). The EEC (European Economic Area) consists of the countries of the European Union, plus Switzerland, Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway. These countries guarantee the same safety standards for the treatment of personal data. This transfer of the data may be necessary if the servers (meaning the physical locations where the data are stored) or if the premises of our suppliers are in countries outside the EEC area. Should we be forced to transfer your data to a country outside the European Economic Area (EEC), it is our responsibility to ensure that they are treated with appropriate safety standards.
Disclosure of your data
In principle, the personal data are not forwarded. Only in some specific cases, personal data may be disclosed to the following suppliers:
- Subcontractors for technical checks and analysis, payments, identification and addressing services, suppliers of analysis services or credit insurance companies
- Public administration or authorities, should this be required by law
- Credit institutions with whom we undertake commercial relations for the handling of credits / debits, financial reasons
- Any physical or legal persons, public and/or private (legal, administrative and fiscal consultants, courts of laws, chambers of commerce, etc.), if the data transfer is necessary or relevant for providing our service activities.
We treat personal data collected on the website using computerised processes. Personal data are protected by Secure Socket Layer (SSL) encryption. This technology protects the user from the risk of unintentional disclosure of personal data when using an unprotected connection.
The user is notified when accessing a protected connection by a padlock icon. By clicking the padlock icon, the user can then make sure that the SSL certificate is valid and up to date.

This is also the reason why the corresponding fields of the contact form are marked with an asterisk, or in any another way, as mandatory fields. The entering of personal or sensitive data other than those marked as mandatory will be at your discretion. Failure to enter, even in part, the mandatory information marked with an asterisk or similar character may result in the impossibility for us to answer your requests or deliver the requested services.
