Dear Visitor of the Site, complying with privacy law is particularly dear to us. 

Processing of Personal Data“, in plain words, means any operation concerning any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person. For example, first and last name, or an email address with a “user name” that identifies You (e.g. johndoe@domain.com) is considered “Personal Data”, and the actions of collection, registration with us and use of Your Personal Data to send You a communication are considered “Processing” operations; same applies to communication of Data to other organisations and storage.

Our organisation is defined as the “Data Controller“, meaning that We are the entity that establishes how and for what purposes information relating to natural persons are processed.

You, as an individual whose Personal Data We process, are referred to as “Data Subject” and are entitled to receive the following information about who We are, what Personal Data We process, why, how and for how long We process it, and what obligations and rights You have in this regard.

If You are a natural person or a sole proprietorship, You are the Data Subject; if You are a private or public organisation (e.g. a corporation, association, public body), the Data Subjects are the natural persons who administer the organisation itself or who operate under its authority (e.g. its employees); information strictly related to the organisation (e.g. tax code number or VAT number) is not considered Personal Data.

Depending on whether You are a simple Visitor, sending us a Request through the Contact Form, and/or at the addresses You can find at the “Contact” Page, or in case You want to subscribe and use the Services, we collect and/or we require You to provide us with Data, necessary to permit You to browse our Site and/or receive our answers to your requests relating to the Services.

Definitions of terms and expressions used within this Privacy Policy are contained in the Glossary. For anything not expressly defined therein, please refer to the definitions set forth in our General Terms and Conditions as available on the Site from time to time (“GTCs”); in the event of any conflict between definitions, for the purposes of this Privacy Policy, the definitions in the Glossary (at the bottom of the page) shall prevail over those contained in the GTCs. 

PLEASE NOTE THAT the GTCs may sometimes mention certain services that are not yet available on the Site. Our Privacy Policy for the time being in force never deals with Personal Data processing that arises from the provision of services that are not yet available because precisely such processing does not take place yet. When the services will actually be available and the processing methods finalised, you will be promptly informed about the update of our policy.
