1. Subject-matter of processing

In managing the site, the Controller processes non-sensitive identification data obtained from either website browsing or from the user’s voluntary provision of data when a contact request is sent through the appropriate form. More details on the subject-matter of the two types of processing are provided below.

Identification data obtained from browsing
During the course of their normal operation, the information systems and software procedures responsible for the functioning of this website acquire certain personal data which is transmitted while using internet communication protocols.
This information is not collected in order to be associated with identified data subjects, but due to its nature, through processing and association with data held by third parties, it could be used to identify users.
This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of the computers utilized by individuals who connect to the site, addresses that contain URIs (Uniform Resource Identifiers) for the resources requested, URLs (Uniform Resource Locators), i.e. the address of the website you used to contact us, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file received in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response from the server (success, error, etc.), the type of browser and the operating system used, and other parameters related to the operating system and the user’s IT environment.
These data are utilized solely to obtain anonymous statistical information regarding site use and to control its proper functioning, and are deleted immediately after processing. The data could be utilized to ascertain liability in case of hypothetical cybercrimes against the site: therefore, data on web contacts could be retained for and limited to this purpose. Solely for the purpose of ascertaining said liability, the IP address and domain name of the computers utilized would make it possible to trace additional user identification details (in particular, first and last name, email address, telephone number, etc.).
In order to browse and consult the site, no sensitive data or data that could reveal religious or political beliefs or the user’s state of health will be processed.

Data voluntarily provided by the user
In order to obtain detailed information on the products and services offered, as well as advertising information related to said products, it may be necessary to provide some personal identifying data (such as first and last name, email address, mailing address, date of birth and telephone number, etc.).
In that case, the user will be requested to provide personal data only to complete the form which collects data on the quote. In particular, we offer you the possibility of signing up for our mailing list. When you join the list, we create a personal account for you with our online store and we send you exclusive offers for the current year. A request to send email requires us to obtain certain personal data, including the user’s first and last name, email address, telephone number, date of birth, and municipality of residence.
The email address you provide also acts as an access code to your personal account. Once registration is complete, you will automatically receive email confirmation and an access password, which must be changed after the first login. In the personal section of your account, you can update your personal data at any time and enter additional information.
We also offer you the possibility of ordering through our online store, access to which requires you to enter your email address and password. Your delivery address is already automatically part of your personal account, but you can change it during the order process.
