privacy policy


We inform you that your personal data that we have acquired or are currently in the process of acquiring will be processed in complete respect of the law and the rights granted to you as the “party directly involved”.

A) Such processing will involve the following operations: the collection by telephonic, telematic or written means from public registers, lists of public acts and documents, and/or public and/or private databases (supplied from commercial information companies), the recording, organisation, conservation and processing using paper, magnetic, automated or telematic support systems, the processing of data collected by third parties, the modification, selection, extraction, comparison, use, and inter-connection also to data supplied from other parties on the basis of recurring qualitative, quantitative, and temporal criteria, or others to be defined case by case, the temporary processing for the purpose of the rapid grouping or transformation of the data themselves, the adoption of decisions in automated and/or discretionary form, the creation of profiles and informative notes, the communication, cancellation and destruction of data, or in other words, the combination of two or more of the above-mentioned operations.

B) In addition to the communication of your personal data to third parties in execution of the obligations prescribed by law or derived from EEC regulations or other directives, we may also communicate such data – even abroad – to the following parties:
1) banks and credit institutes for the purpose of making payments;
2) insurance companies for the purpose of stipulating coverage during shipping;
3) credit recovery, insurance and/or credit granting companies;
4) commercial information companies;
5) consultants and professionals;
6) individual professionals ad professional studios (legal, business expert, auditor, etc.);
7) auditors;
8) other companies, agencies and/or individual persons who perform activities useful for the support or execution of the contracts or services that you have requested (e.g. commercial correspondence and mailing companies, shippers and handlers, sub-contractors).
In their role as the “handlers” of these data as per the sense and effect of Italian Privacy Law 196/2003 Art. 28, such parties will proceed to the processing and communication of such data in turn in complete autonomy.

C) Your personal data will be processed and communicated for the following purposes:
1) the satisfaction of pre-contractual needs (e.g. instructions for offers or your orders, checks into solvency );
2) the fulfilment of contractual (linked to the supply or purchase of goods and/or services) and legal obligations (e.g. for purposes of accounting, taxation, administration, and liquidity positions);
3) the management of clients and suppliers;
4) the management of credit and risk control (fraud, insolvency, etc.);
5) the management of disputes and granting of credit);
6) financial services instrumental in the management of clients/suppliers and management of electronic payment instruments;
7) insurance services required for the management of clients/suppliers.

D) You are required to provide your personal data only for the purposes specified in the above-mentioned Point C) from 1 to 7 and therefore your previous consent for the processing of data for such purposes is not necessary. Such data will be processed for the entire duration of the contractual relationship stipulated, and subsequently for the duration required for our fulfilment of our legal obligations and for the conservation of your company profile for the rationalisation of our selection of clients and/or suppliers. Although you have the right to freely refuse consent, such failure to provide the data requested will render the execution of the contractual relationship in force impossible.
