Personal data shall be processed in accordance with the legislative provisions of the above legislation and the confidentiality obligations provided therein.

Purposes of data processing

Service provision: personal data shall be processed to respond to any requests that may be received via any forms filled in, including those available on the website, or to requests received by email.

Legal basis: the legal basis of data processing is contractual in nature, within the terms and conditions in which data processing is provided for in response to a request for information followed by a reply.

Marketing: newsletter subscription service: in particular, data shall be processed, subject to consent being freely granted, to allow for receipt of newsletters, following the inputting of an email address in the box containing information regarding newsletter subscription, or checking/ticking the box indicating “newsletter subscription” on a form.

Legal basis: The legal basis for processing is consent granted by the data subject.

Compulsory or optional nature of data provision

Conferring data is optional with regard to the aforementioned purposes of service provision. Failure to complete the required fields or any fields marked with an asterisk, means it is impossible to continue with the requests for information; any refusal to allow data processing does not compromise continuation of the relationship or the accuracy of data processing itself.
For marketing purposes, consent is voluntary, separate and optional. Failure to grant consent does not affect site browsing or the provision of the services requested.

Data processing methods

Personal data shall be processed by primarily electronic means such as:

  • by means of electronic computers using software systems managed by third parties;
  • by means of electronic computers using directly managed or programmed software systems;
  • temporary processing in aggregated anonymous form.

All data processing shall be carried out in compliance with the methods set out in Articles 6 and 32 of the GDPR and by adopting the appropriate security measures.

Any other technical subjects who need to be aware of the data in order to perform their task, such as guaranteeing correct execution of the newsletter subscription request.
Third countries: personal data shall not be communicated to non-EU countries.
Disclosure: personal data shall not be disclosed in any way.
