Notice regarding article 13 of Legislative decree no. 196/2003


Under Legislative decree no. 196/2003 (code on the handling of personal data), your data will be handled in compliance with fundamental rights and freedoms, without impinging on your privacy or dignity, by adopting principles inspired by correctness, legality and transparency, and will be used solely for the purposes for which the data was obtained.
Pursuant to article 13 of Legislative decree no. 196/2003, we wish to inform you of the following:


1. Aims of data handling

Data handling is used for purposes of taxation, administration, revenue and/or associated topics, and for the preparation, conclusion, management and execution of commercial contracts, and dealings with credit institutions and financing offices.
Data may be used for the promotion and marketing of products or services, as well as for surveys about the quality of received services.


2. Means of data handling

Data is processed using operations or a series of operations in compliance with article 4, paragraph 1, section a), of Legislative decree no. 196/2003: collection, recording and organisation, storage, consultation, processing, changing, extraction, comparison, use, communication, and cancellation.
Data is also handled using electronic, computerised tools and is stored on both computer and paper supports and on any other support suitable for respecting the minimum security rules under the technical instructions for security measures, Annex B of Legislative decree no. 196/2003.
The data is processed directly by the owner’s organisation and by external parties authorised by the owner or by the person in charge, except in the case of the communication or distribution of data requested, under law, by police forces, judicial authorities, information and security organisations or by other public organisations for the purpose of defence or State security, or for the prevention, investigation and repression of crime.


3. Provision of data

Notwithstanding the personal autonomy of the person concerned, the provision of personal data may be mandatory, based on law, regulations or community standards; strictly necessary for completing new agreements or for managing or executing existing agreements; or optional for the purpose of conducting promotional and marketing activities for products and services, as well as for surveys about satisfaction with the quality of received services.


4. Refusal to provide data

Should the person concerned refuse to provide his/her personal data:
it may be impossible to conclude or implement relative contracts, in cases where the refusal involves mandatory or strictly necessary data.
it may not have any influence on existing legal relationships, but may make it impossible to conduct promotional and marketing activities for products and services, and surveys about satisfaction with the quality of services received, if the refusal involves optional data.


5. Data disclosure

Data may be disclosed to public or private organisations for which data disclosure is mandatory or required, according to their respective, specific interests, for the purposes of correctly fulfilling administrative or contractual requirements or obligations required by law, by regulation or by community standards.


6. Data distribution

Personal data is not subject to distribution.
