Website privacy policy

This document describes how the website is managed in reference to the processing of the personal data of those who interact with the services provided. Information is provided pursuant to Art. 13 of the European Regulation no. 2016/679 (GDPR) only for this website and not also for other sites that may be consulted by the user via any links, of which ZECCHINI GROUP DI ZECCHINI FRANCO & FIGLI S.R.L. is in no way responsible. In order to offer the personalised and non-personalised services provided by this website, ZECCHINI GROUP DI ZECCHINI FRANCO & FIGLI S.R.L., in its capacity as Data Controller, processes the personal data necessary for the provision of such services and it guarantees, within the framework of the regulatory provisions, that the processing of personal data is carried out in compliance with the fundamental rights and freedoms, as well as respecting the dignity of the person concerned with particular reference to confidentiality, personal identity, rights, and protection of personal data. Specific additional information can be found on the pages of the site that are designed for particular services on request that include forms for data collection.

Types of data processed

Personal data may be collected automatically during navigation and use of the website and its services or they may be entered voluntarily by the user. Among the personal data collected by the Data Controller, independently or through third parties, there may be, by way of example but not limited to, IP address, date and time of visit, type of browser and device used, web page of origin and exit, etc. The personal data transmitted by the user may include, but are not limited to, identification data (company name, VAT number or tax code, name and surname of natural persons, etc.) and contact data (name, city, address, or other personal identification elements such as name, surname, telephone number, e-mail address, etc.).

  1. Navigation and other data

The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire, during their normal functioning, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This information is not collected to be associated with specific interested parties, but by its very nature it could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, enable users to be identified. This category of data includes IP addresses or the domain names of the computers used by users connecting to the website, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (successful, error, etc.), and other parameters relating to the user’s operating system and IT environment. These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and checking that it is functioning correctly. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in the event of any computer crimes against the site at the request of competent authorities. Any use of cookies or other tracking tools by this website or the owners of any third party services used by it, unless otherwise specified, is intended to identify the user and record their preferences for purposes strictly related to the provision of the service requested by the user themselves.

  1. Personal data provided voluntarily by the user

Personal data may be entered voluntarily by the user, in order to make their requests or use the services provided by the website, by filling in forms or sending electronic mail messages. The provision of such data occurs on an optional, explicit, and voluntary basis and it involves the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s e-mail address, which is necessary to respond to requests, as well as any other personal data entered for the purposes of the service and for those further granted by the user. Specific information can be found on the pages where forms are included with fields calling for necessary information and any indication that it is compulsory to provide the data required to use the service requested. The user assumes responsibility for the personal data of third parties that may be published or shared through this website and guarantees that they have the right to communicate or disseminate them, thus releasing the Data Controller from any liability towards any third parties.

Purposes of processing and purposes of cookies

The purpose of cookies used on the web is to perform computer authentication, session monitoring, and storage of technical information regarding the activities of users accessing a web page or site. Therefore, some operations on the website could not be carried out without the use of cookies, which are therefore technically necessary in such cases. These so-called technical cookies are useful because they can help navigate the website more quickly and use it more effectively, e.g. they facilitate certain procedures when shopping online, when logging into a reserved area, or when a website automatically recognises the user’s preferred language.

The website uses cookies to make the site’s services simpler, faster, and more efficient for the user viewing its web pages. Users accessing the site receive very small amounts of information on their devices, whether computers or mobile devices, in the form of small text files, namely the above-mentioned “cookies”, stored in the directories used by their browsers. The cookies we use allow doing as follows:

  • storing browsing preferences;
  • avoiding re-entering the same information several times;
  • analysing the use of the services and content provided by the site to optimise the browsing experience.

Legal basis

Personal data of users visiting the web pages of the site may be acquired through the use of cookies for the purposes described above. The use of technical cookies is a processing activity carried out in the legitimate interest of the Data Controller. The lawfulness of processing operations that can be traced back to the use of analytical or third-party cookies, on the other hand, is based on the provision of explicit and unequivocal consent by the user (at their first access to the website).
The personal data of users who access our website to take advantage of the services it offers are provided by those concerned on a voluntary basis. In this context, the legal basis for the resulting data processing is as follows:

  • performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or performance of pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the data subject (information and commercial offers);
  • pursuit of the legitimate interest of the Data Controller (promotion of commercial activities towards customers or potential customers who explicitly request it);
  • acquisition of consent.

Compulsory and optional provision of data

The personal data collected by this website, either independently or through third parties, consist of navigation data and personal data freely provided by the user. Full details of each type of data collected are provided in their related sections of this privacy policy or by means of specific information texts that can be viewed on the pages including data collection forms.
The user may refuse to give the Data Controller their navigation data. To do so, they must disable cookies by following the instructions provided by the browser in use. Disabling cookies may make navigation worse and may limit and/or prevent the use of all or part of the site’s functionalities. With regard to the optional provision of data, more information on the cookies present on the website is provided in the “Cookie policy” document, which can be accessed both from this information page and from the summary information contained in the banner published on the website.
The provision of data in the forms on this website is optional, except for those indicated as mandatory in order to enable the user to access the services offered. If the user fails to provide certain personal data, they may not be able to use all the features and services provided by this website or to get a response to their requests. The processing of data provided spontaneously for the purposes described above is carried out without consent, as it is strictly necessary to carry out the processing operations themselves and to activate the services requested by the user. In compliance with current legislation, the person concerned may also be asked to give their consent to the processing of their data (in cases where the stated purpose requires it) by ticking the appropriate box on the relevant form. It is understood that the data subject may revoke any consent given at any time, without prejudice to the lawfulness of the processing based on the consent given before revocation.

Data processing

Personal data will be processed by electronic means, including automated means, in accordance with the principles of lawfulness, necessity, and relevance and by adopting guarantee measures aimed at identifying any appropriate safeguards at any stage of the processing activity, having regard to the specific purposes of the processing itself. In this context, personal data are anonymised and identification data are removed if there is no need to process such data in an identifiable form for the above-mentioned processing purposes and, in any case, upon expiry of the retention period indicated in the following paragraph. The Data Controller does not carry out processing operations consisting of automated decision-making processes (such as profiling) on the data of users or of those who interact with this website.
Personal data will be processed by persons expressly authorised and trained in the protection of personal data. Computer technicians and IT staff supervising the operation of our computer systems may access the data accidentally.

Data storage

The Data Controller keeps the data collected for the time necessary to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of the website and to check its correct operation. Personal data are kept for the period necessary to pursue the above-mentioned purposes. In particular, any personal data collected for purposes related to the legitimate interest of the Data Controller shall be processed and stored until such interest is satisfied, without prejudice to a further storage period imposed by law or by an explicit request from the authorities. Any processing activity based on the consent of the data subject, the Data Controller may keep personal data for longer, until such consent is withdrawn upon the request of the data subject. Once the above-mentioned storage period has elapsed and the purpose for which the data was collected has been completed, the data will be deleted or made anonymous and processed solely for statistical analysis.

Data recipients

The Data Controller does not disclose any personally identifiable data or information to third parties except, if necessary and to the extent strictly necessary, to those who act as suppliers for the provision of services relating to the management of the website and for the consequent management of the contractual relationship and its related administrative obligations, as well as to those who provide IT services or electronic communication commercial services.

The Data Controller takes appropriate security measures to prevent any unauthorised access, disclosure, modification, or destruction of personal data. In addition to the Data Controller, in some cases, other subjects involved in the organisation of this website (sales/marketing personnel, system administrators, etc.) or external subjects (suppliers of technical services, hosting providers, computer service companies, companies specialising in the management, development, and maintenance of websites, etc.) may have access to the data, also appointed, if necessary, as Data Processors by the Data Controller. The updated list of Data Processors can always be requested from the Data Controller.

Data transfer

Under no circumstances is the transfer of personal data to a third country or an international organisation envisaged (Art. 13, par. 1, lett. f) of GDPR).
However, the Data Controller reserves the right to use cloud services. In this case, the service providers appointed as Data Processors pursuant to and for the purposes of Art. 28 of GDPR, , limited to the performance of specific processing activities, will be chosen from among companies certified in accordance with the standards ISO 27001 (information security), ISO 27017 (cloud security), and ISO 27018 (cloud privacy).

User rights

The person concerned, to whom the personal data refer, may at any time exercise their rights (pursuant to Art. 15 to 22 of GDPR) in order to obtain as follows:

  • confirmation as to whether or not personal data relating to them are being processed and access to the data and the following information: purposes of processing, categories of personal data, recipients and/or categories of recipients to whom the data have been and/or will be communicated, and retention period;
  • rectification of any inaccurate personal data concerning them and/or the integration of incomplete personal data, including by providing a supplementary declaration;
  • erasure of personal data, in the cases provided for by current legislation;
  • restriction of processing, in the cases provided for by current legislation;
  • data portability, in particular to request from the Controller the personal data concerning them and/or to request from the Controller the direct transmission of their data to another Data Controller;
  • • opposition to the processing of personal data concerning them, in the cases provided for by current legislation.

With regard to the exercise of their rights, the data subject may address their requests through a specific communication by post addressed to the Data Controller (to the above address) or by e-mail to the address, specifying the subject of their request and the right they wish to exercise and by attaching a copy of an identity document attesting to the legitimacy of the request.

Right of complaint

Data subjects who believe that their personal data are being processed in breach of the Regulation have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent supervisory authority (Italian Data Protection Authority) as provided for on the website (pursuant to Art. 77 of GDPR) or to take appropriate legal action (pursuant to Art. 79 of GDPR).

Applicable law and jurisdiction

These conditions are governed by Italian law. Any dispute arising out of the interpretation, application, or performance of these conditions shall be referred to the exclusive jurisdiction of the Court of Biella.
