PERSONAL DATA BEING PROCESSED AND PURPOSE OF THE PROCESSING
The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire certain personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols.
This category of data includes the IP addresses or domain names of the computers and terminals used by the users, the URI/URL (Uniform Resource Identifier/Locator) notation addresses of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used in submitting the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the user’s operating system and computer environment.
These data, necessary for the use of web services, are also processed for the purpose of:
-obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the services (most visited pages, number of visitors per time slot or per day, geographical areas of origin, etc.);
-checking the proper functioning of the services offered.
Browsing data do not persist for more than seven days and are deleted immediately after their aggregation (except in the event of the need to ascertain criminal offences by judicial authorities).
Data provided by the User
Optionally, explicitly and voluntarily sending messages to the contact addresses published on the website, as well as filling out and forwarding the forms on the website to enjoy the services offered, entail the acquisition of the sender’s contact data, necessary to reply, as well as all the personal data included in the communications.
Specific information is published on the pages of the website set up for the provision of certain services, with a request for possible consent to processing.
Data of minors under 16 years of age
Minors under the age of 16 are not allowed to provide any personal data or register on the website. If it is ascertained that the declarations made are not true, all data received will be erased.
SOCIAL MEDIA NETWORKS
This website may use so-called social media plug-ins. Social plug-ins are special tools that allow social media network functionalities to be incorporated directly into the website (e.g. the Facebook “like” function). All social plug-ins on the site are marked with the respective logo owned by the social networking platform (e.g. Facebook, Google, Twitter, Instagram).
When you visit a page on our site and interact with the plug-in (e.g. by clicking the “Like” button) or decide to leave a comment, the corresponding information is transmitted from your browser directly to the social networking platform and stored there.
PURPOSE AND LEGAL BASIS OF THE PROCESSING
The Data Controller processes the aforementioned personal data in order to: manage and maintain the website; allow access to any dedicated areas; make use of any services offered; provide assistance and consultancy and process a contact request; carry out administrative-accounting activities in general; comply with an order from the Authorities; prevent fraudulent activities or abuses harmful to the website; exercise a right in court.
The Data Controller may process the aforementioned personal data even without specific consent, except as required for filling out specific forms, since the legal basis for lawful processing derives from the execution of pre-contractual measures adopted at the request of the data subject (e.g. request for information by e-mail), as well as for the pursuit of the Data Controller’s legitimate interest in promoting and fulfilling its statutory purposes.
The provision of data for the above-mentioned purposes is free and optional; however, refusal may make it impossible for the Controller to fulfil the above-mentioned purpose.
METHODS OF PROCESSING
The data are entered into an electronic database and/or stored in paper archives.
The data will not be subject to any automated decisions-making process, nor does profiling of any type take place.
RECIPIENTS OF THE USERS’ DATA
The users’ personal data may be processed and known by ARGUS SECURITY collaborators and employees, as persons authorised to perform processing operations and specially trained for data protection.
The data may be communicated to external parties (e.g. companies managing the website and web platforms, associated companies, external consultants, subcontractors, etc.) for the purposes outlined above, should the need for their involvement arise. The same subjects will act as autonomous Data Controllers, or will be appointed as external data processors, whose full list can be requested by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
The data may be disclosed to supervisory bodies and judicial authorities, as well as to all other parties to whom disclosure is mandatory by law.
The personal data via the website are managed and stored by GlobalizeMe UK Ltd, a company registered in the Commercial Register in England and Wales under the number 06809325, whose official address is: 38 Sanderum House, 38 Oakley Road, Chinnor, Oxfordshire, England, OX39 4TW, duly appointed as Data Processor. Please note that the European Commission has allowed the transfer of data from the EU to the UK; the decision under the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and the decision under the Directive on Data Protection in Police and Judicial Activities (LED) both allow the transfer of data from the EU to the UK, as the UK currently offers a level of data protection that is roughly equivalent to that offered in the EU.
DATA RETENTION TIME
The Data Controller will retain the data for the time strictly necessary to fulfil the purposes set out above and also to respond to any need to access and retrieve the data. After 24 months from acquisition (7 days for browsing data), if there are no further contact needs or retention obligations (10 years for contractual purposes), the data will be deleted.
RIGHTS OF THE DATA SUBJECT
The rights recognised include the right to:
- request access to the personal data and information relating thereto; rectification of inaccurate data or supplementation of incomplete data; erasure of personal data (upon the occurrence of one of the conditions indicated in art. 17, paragraph 1 of the GDPR and in compliance with the exceptions provided for in paragraph 3 of the same article); the restriction of the processing of personal data (in the event of one of the hypotheses indicated in art. 18, paragraph 1 of the GDPR);
- request and obtain – where the legal basis of the processing is a contract or consent, and the processing is carried out by automated means – the personal data in a structured, machine-readable format, also for the purpose of communicating such data to another data controller (so-called right to data portability);
- object at any time to the processing of personal data in the event of special situations concerning him or her;
- revoke consent at any time, limited to cases where processing is based on consent for one or more specific purposes and concerns common personal data (e.g. date and place of birth or place of residence), or special categories of data (e.g. data revealing health or sex life). Processing based on consent and carried out prior to the revocation of consent nevertheless retains its lawfulness.
With reference to the above-mentioned purposes, the data subject has the right to, at any time, request the termination of the processing and sending of e-mail communications by the Data Controller, with a request to be submitted to the contacts indicated above.
RIGHT TO LODGE A COMPLAINT
If the data subject considers that there has been a breach in the processing of his or her personal data, he or she may lodge a complaint with the Supervisory Authority of the place where he or she normally resides, works or where the alleged breach occurred. In Italy, he or she may lodge a complaint with the Italian Data Protection Authority.
If the changes affect processing whose legal basis is consent, the Controller will collect the user’s consent again, if necessary.
