Since, in such a case, the Company would not collect this information directly from the data subjects (but, indirectly, from you), you guarantee that such specific processing may be based on the consent of such data subjects or on another appropriate legal basis that legitimises the processing of the concerned information.


2.          Navigation data and other information

The following are the legal bases used by the Company to process your Personal Data, according to the purposes listed under the previous Section (“Purpose of processing and processed Personal Data”).


Provision of Personal Data and their processing for the purposes associated with the Supply of Services and other Contractual obligations are strictly functional to perform the required service and to properly perform the contractual relationship signed with you, respectively; therefore they are a necessary condition to establish the contractual relationship. Consequently, failure to provide Personal Data required for this purpose, or the provision of wrong data, may make it impossible for the Company to perform the Service and the contractual relationship and will entitle the Company to refuse to perform them or to stop their performance.

The provision of Personal Data and their processing for the purposes of the Legal Obligations are required by the Company to meet the relevant legal obligations. When you provide Personal Data to the Company, it needs to process it in compliance with applicable laws that may include storing them or communicating them to pertinent authorities.

The provision of Personal Data and their processing for the purposes of Security, is based on the commitment of the Company to identify and prevent illegal behaviours and to ascertain responsibility in the event of any cybercrime perpetrated using the platform. Consequently, failure to provide Personal Data required for this purpose may make it impossible for the Company to provide access to the platform.

Provision of Personal Data and the relevant processing for purposes of Marketing is based on your explicit authorisation provided by means of a specific positive action (e.g. clicking on a specific checkbox). You are never obligated to provide this authorisation to the Company and, if you do, you are always free to withdraw it at any moment without any consequences (other than not receiving commercial communications by the Company). You can withdraw your authorisation by following the instructions under the Section “Your rights” of this Privacy Policy.

The provision of Personal Data, and the related data processing for Profiling purpose, is based on your explicit consent collected through a specific button on the cookie banner, i.e. by accessing the cookie preference centre, through a button on the cookie “Cookie settings” banner. You are never obligated to provide this authorisation and, if you do, you are always free to withdraw it at any moment without any consequences (other than not being able to benefit from the personalisation of commercial communications). You may withdraw your consent to do so by following the instructions in the "Your Rights as a Data Subjects" section of this Privacy Policy, i.e. by accessing the cookie preference centre via the "Cookie Settings" button on the cookie banner. From the cookie preference centre the User can withdraw the consent given for the activation of all cookies by pressing the "Reject all" button.



Personal Data will be provided to personnel of the Company, who is authorised to process them in order to fulfil the previously described purposes and who is committed to confidentiality or has received a suitable legal confidentiality obligation.

Personal Data processed for the previously described purposes can be shared, used and transferred among the companies of the SACMI Group for internal accounting and administrative purposes, having registered headquarters both within and outside countries of the European Union and/or the European Economic Area (given the international reach of the companies of the SACMI Group). In this case, the Company ensures that Data will be processed by these subjects in compliance with applicable regulations. Therefore transfers are made by means of suitable guarantees, such as adequacy decisions, Standard Contractual Clauses approved by the European Commission and in force pro tempore or other suitable guarantees. These companies act as independent Controllers who process the data as strictly necessary for the aforementioned purposes; for anything not mentioned in this Privacy Policy, these subjects shall provide you with a specific policy on how they will potentially carry out the Data processing.

The up-to-date list of companies of the SACMI Group can be viewed on the website of the Group

Personal Data will be supplied to third parties, called Data Processors, since they process Data on behalf of the Company (e.g. companies with whom it is necessary to interact to provide Services, such as hosting providers, providers of emailing services, or other companies appointed to carry out technical maintenance, including maintenance of network equipment and electronic communication networks, software developers, companies providing the technological platform and payment gateways for product order with e-payments, etc.). Personal Data that is strictly required to perform commercial operations or required Services may be shared with third parties with whom the Company has agreements for services that are functional to its operations (such as auditing firms, people, firms or professional offices that provide support and consultancy services in the fields of administration, law, taxation, financial services and debt collection services, for the purpose of providing these Services).

Finally, Personal Data will be communicated, upon request, to the relevant authorities (e.g. in the event of frauds and/or abuses when using the Site), to financial offices or to other Public Institutions according to the provisions of current regulations.

The Data shall not be circulated ("circulation" meaning making unspecified subjects aware of the Data).



Personal Data processed for the purposes of Supply of Services and Contractual Obligations will be stored by the COMPANY for the time that is strictly required to perform the requested Service and to properly fulfill our contractual relationship with you. In any case, since this Personal Data is processed to provide Services and to allow the contractual relationship to be fulfilled, the Company may store them for a longer period, in particular as necessary in order to protect the interests of the Company from any liability pertaining to the Services. Data will be deleted at the end of this period.

The Personal Data processed for the purposes of Legal Obligations will be kept by the Company for the period provided for by specific legal obligations or applicable regulations.

Personal data processed for the purpose of Security will not last more than 6 months, except when it is used to ascertain responsibility for any cybercrime against the Company or third parties (e.g. to protect from legal actions by providing this data to the relevant Authorities).

Personal Data processed for the purpose of Marketing will be stored by the Company until you withdraw your authorisation to do so. After withdrawing your authorisation, the Company will no longer use your Personal Data for this purpose, but will still be able to store them, particularly when necessary to protect the interests of the Company against any liability based on this processing.

Personal Data processed for the purpose of Profiling will be retained by the Company until you withdraw your authorisation to do so. Once your consent has been withdrawn, the Company will no longer use your Personal Data for such purposes, but may still retain them in aggregate form for statistical use. With regard to the retention period of data processed through cookies and other similar technologies, read the Cookie Policy Section and the list of cookies, including third-party cookies, accessible from the cookie banner through the "Cookie Settings" button or from the "Cookie Settings" link located in the footer of the Site.

·       to oppose the processing of your Personal Data, using a legal basis relating to your particular situation, which you believe should prevent the Company from processing your Personal Data;

·       to revoke your consent for Marketing and Profiling purposes. Remember that the authorisation given for Marketing communications covers not only communications sent by means of automatic systems without operator intervention (such as emails or SMS) but also traditional contact methods such as the phone or postal service. You can always withdraw authorisation to processing also separately, for example deciding to receive these communications only by means of automatic systems such as email or SMS but not through the postal service or phone and vice versa.

The Company informs you that the above rights can be exercised by writing to the email address

For Marketing purposes, you can ask to withdraw or cease sending the relevant commercial communications at any moment by writing to the email address When communications are received by means of computer tools, follow the procedure described in the footer of the communications (by means of the “Delete” button).
