F. To which parties might your Personal Data be communicated?

Your Personal Data may be communicated to specific parties deemed recipients of that data. In particular, article 4, point 9), of the Regulation defines a recipient of Personal Data as, “a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or another body, to which the personal data is disclosed, whether a third party or not” (hereinafter, the “Recipients”).

In this light, in order to perform properly all the Processing activities necessary for the reasons addressed in this Information, the following Recipients may find themselves in a position to process your Personal Data:

third parties that perform part of the Processing activities and/or activities related and relevant to them on behalf of the Data Controller.  These parties are appointed as data processors, which article 4, point 8), of the Regulation defines in the singular as, “a natural or legal person, public authority, agency or other body which processes Personal Data on behalf of the Data Controller” (hereinafter, “Data Processor”);

Individuals, employees and/or collaborators of the Data Controller who have been authorised to carry out specific and/or multiple Processing activities using your Personal Data. These individuals have been given specific instructions on the subjects of security and the proper use of Personal Data and, pursuant to article 4, point 10), of the Regulation as, “persons who, under the direct authority of the Data Controller or Data Processor, are authorised to process Personal Data” (hereinafter, the “Authorised Persons”).

Where required by law or to prevent or impede the commitment of an offence, your Personal Data may be communicated to public bodies or to the judicial authorities, without them being defined as Recipients. In particular, article 4, point 9), of the Regulation states that, “public authorities which may receive Personal Data in the framework of a particular inquiry in accordance with Union or Member State law shall not be regarded as Recipients”.

G. How long will your Personal Data be retained?

One of the principles applicable to the Processing of your Personal Data relates to limitation of the period of retention. This is governed by article 5, para. 1, point e), of the Regulation, which states that, “Personal Data shall be kept in a form which permits identification of Data Subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the Personal Data is processed; Personal Data may be stored for longer periods insofar as the Personal Data will be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with Article 89(1) subject to implementation of the appropriate technical and organisational measures required by this Regulation in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of the Data Subject”.

Given that principle, your Personal Data will only be processed by the Data Controller to the extent necessary to achieve the purposes indicated in Section D of this Information. In particular, your Personal Data will be processed for the minimum necessary period of time, as indicated in Recital 39 of the Regulation, being until termination of the contractual relationship existing between you and the Data Controller, without prejudice to any additional period of retention that may be imposed by law, as envisaged for example in Recital 65 of the Regulation.

With regard to processing carried out for the purposes indicated in Section E of this Information, the Data Controller may lawfully process your Personal Data until you communicate, in one of the ways envisaged in this Information, your wish to revoke the consent given for one or all of the purposes for which you were requested to give such consent.  Any revocation of consent will, in fact, require the Data Controller to cease the Processing of your Personal Data for the purposes concerned.

H. Can consent be revoked once given and how?

As envisaged in the Regulation, if you have given your consent for the Processing of your Personal Data for one or more of the requested purposes, you may at any time revoke it, in whole or in part, without prejudice to the lawfulness of the Processing based on the consent given prior to its revocation.

The ways to revoke consent are very simple and intuitive, you just need to contact the Data Controller using the contact channels indicated in Sections C and I of this Information.

In addition to the above and for simplicity, if you receive advertising e-mail messages from the Data Controller that are no longer of interest to you, it will be sufficient to click on the “Unsubscribe” button at the foot of the message to cease receipt of all communications, including via any additional contact channels for which your consent was previously obtained (text messages, mms, post, fax, telephone calls).

I. What are your rights?

As envisaged in article 15 of the Regulation, you may access your Personal Data, request its rectification and update, if incomplete or erroneous, request its erasure if collected in violation of any law or regulations, or object to its Processing for specific reasons that are legitimate.

In particular, all the rights that you can exercise at any time in relation to the Data Controller are listed below:

Right of access: pursuant to article 15, para. 1, of the Regulation, you are entitled to obtain confirmation from the Data Controller about whether or not your Personal Data is being processed and, in that case, to obtain access to that Personal Data and the following information: a) the purposes of the Processing;
b) the categories of Personal Data concerned; c) the Recipients or categories of Recipient to whom the Personal Data has been or will be disclosed, in particular Recipients in third countries or international organisations; d) where possible, the envisaged period for which the Personal Data will be stored, or, if not possible, the criteria used to determine that period; e) the existence of the right to request from the Data Controller rectification or erasure of Personal Data or restriction of Processing of Personal Data about you or to object to such Processing; f) the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority; g) where the Personal Data is not collected from you, any available information as to its source; h) the existence of automated decision-making, including profiling, referred to in Article 22(1) and (4) of the Regulation and, at least in those cases, meaningful information about the logic involved, as well as the significance and the envisaged consequences for you of such Processing.

Right to rectification: pursuant to article 16 of the Regulation, you may obtain the rectification of your Personal Data that is inexact. Having regard for the purposes of Processing, you can also obtain the completion of any incomplete Personal Data, including by the provision of a supplementary statement.

Right to erasure: pursuant to article 17, para. 1, of the Regulation you may obtain the erasure of your Personal Data without undue delay and the Data Controller shall have the obligation to erase your Personal Data where even just one of the following grounds applies: a) the Personal Data is no longer necessary in relation to the purposes for which it was collected or otherwise processed; b) you have withdrawn the consent on which the Processing of your Personal Data is based and there is no other legal ground for its Processing; c) you have objected to the Processing pursuant to Article 21(1) or (2) of the Regulation and there are no overriding legitimate grounds for the Processing of your Personal Data; d) the Personal Data has been unlawfully processed; e) the Personal Data has to be erased for compliance with a legal obligation in Union or Member State law. In certain cases, as envisaged in article 17, para. 3, of the Regulation, the Data Controller can justifiably avoid erasing your Personal Data if its Processing is necessary, for example, for exercising the right of freedom of expression and information, for compliance with a legal obligation, for reasons of public interest, for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes, or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims.

Right to restriction of processing: pursuant to article 18 of the Regulation, you may obtain the restriction of Processing where one of the following applies: a) you have contested the accuracy of your Personal Data (restriction for the period needed by the Data Controller to verify the accuracy of the Personal Data); b) the Processing is unlawful but you have opposed the erasure of your Personal Data and requested the restriction of its use instead; c) the Data Controller no longer needs the Personal Data for the purposes of the Processing, but it is required for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims; d) you have objected to Processing pursuant to Article 21(1) of the Regulation pending verification of whether the legitimate grounds of the Data Controller override yours. If Processing restricted, except with regard to its conservation, your Personal Data will only be processed with your consent or for the establishment, exercise or defence of legal claims, or for the protection of the rights of another natural or legal person, or for significant reasons of public interest. In all cases, you will be informed before the above restriction is revoked.

Right to data portability: pursuant to article 20, para. 1, of the Regulation, you may at any time request and receive all your Personal Data processed by the Data Controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format, or you may request its transmission to another data controller without hindrance. In this case, you are responsible for giving us exact and complete details of the new data controller to which you intend to transfer your Personal Data, together with a written authority.

Right to object: pursuant to article 21, para. 2, of the Regulation and as confirmed in Recital 70, you may object at any time to the Processing of your Personal Data for direct marketing purposes, which includes profiling to the extent that it is related to such direct marketing.
