Nature of data

“Personal Data” refers to any information concerning an identified or identifiable physical person, even indirectly, by reference to any other information (art 4., lett. b of the Code).

Data processing mode

The personal data processed by Qualeatalian (“Data Processing”) is navigation data and data provided directly by users.

Navigation data – log files: Data collected automatically and/or so-called “cookies”. During normal operation, the computer systems and software procedures for the operation of this Website acquire some personal data, which is implicitly transmitted in the use of Internet communication protocols. Generally, this information is not collected in order to be associated to the identified persons, but which by its very nature could, if processed and associated to data held by third parties, lead to the identification of the users. This category of data includes the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users connecting to the Website, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of requested resources, the time of the request, the method used in submitting the request to the server. It also includes the size of the file obtained in reply, the numerical code indicating the state of the reply given by the server (OK, error, etc.) and other parameters concerning the user's operating system and computer environment.  This data is used principally to gather statistical information on the use of the website and to check that it is working correctly.  Data may be used to ascertain responsibility in the case of hypothetical data processing crimes to the detriment of the website.

Data provided directly by the user: is any personal data entered in the Website (to surf the site, purchase items on-line or for any other reason) or in any case provided to Qualeatalian in any means. All persons concerned, within legal limits, can decide to not consent to the processing of all or part of their data, even though such exclusion could limit or exclude the use of part of the services provided by Qualeatalian. Examples of data provided directly by the persons concerned include name; address and telephone number; credit card data (processed exclusively for the time required for the purchase transaction); the names of the order recipients, where not the purchaser. More generally, all data provided for the purposes of purchasing on-line, product searches on the Website, filling in and using a profile on the Website, facilitation of deliveries through the provision of contact data (e.g. telephone, e-mail, addresses), etc.

Obligatory or optional nature and consequences of any refusal

Qualeatalian mainly uses the data provided by the parties concerned in order to:

-          Process orders and perform the connected activities (e.g.: communications with customers concerning the status of the order, responding to requests for information, managing payments, etc.);

-          Manage the accounts of users registered with the Website in order to provide the relative services;

-          Allow subscription to other specific services, such as newsletters for sending information on promotional offers and other information services. Data might be used to perform statistical activities and/or market research.

For all the above purposes, Qualeatalian may appoint external suppliers, who are provided only the data strictly necessary to perform the contracted services. The provision of data for the purposes listed in points 1 and 2 above is necessary to be able to complete the sale, deliver the products and services purchased on the Website or to register with the Website. For all these reasons, the provision of data is obligatory and any refusal to provide consent to Processing shall make it impossible to perform the services requested for the purchase of goods and services on the Website or to register with the Website.

The provision of data for the purposes described in point 3 (newsletter for promotional, information and research purposes) is optional. The refusal to provide consent to such process will not hinder any contractual relations with Qualeatalian for the provision of the services listed in points 1 and 2 above. It will only make it impossible to update users on commercial initiatives and/or promotional campaigns, sending offers or other promotional literature and/or sending users customised offers. If such consent is given by selecting the "Subscribe to the Newsletter” box, Qualeatalian may send users advertising and promotional messages using all contact details provided. These marketing initiatives will be carried out in the limits of the provisions of the Code and without prejudice to the user's right to deny consent to such use at any time, even in relation to only some of the contact details provided (opt‐out).
