This policy is issued pursuant to Art. 13 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (so-called “General Data Protection Regulation” or “GDPR”), and to Legislative Decree No. 196 of 30 June 2003, as amended and supplemented by Legislative Decree No. 101 of 10 August 2018 (“Data Protection Act” or “Privacy Act”), and to Recommendation no. 2 of 17.05.2001 on “certain minimum requirements for collecting personal data on-line in the European Union” adopted by the Working Party Art. 29 (or “WP29”), now replaced by the European Data Protection Board (or “EDPB”), by:

ECSA Italia s.r.l., with registered office in 20832 Desio (MB), Via Lavoratori Autobianchi, 1, T.C./V.A.T. no. 00222470130, in its capacity as Data Controller (hereinafter, “Controller”)

The Controller, being aware of the importance of guaranteeing the security of private information, in accordance with applicable European and Italian legislation and with the principle of transparency enshrined in Art. 12 GDPR, provides the following information to inform users about the characteristics and methods of personal data processing.


  1. Scope of processing
    The Controller processes the user’s personal data that are supplied when using the website. In particular, the Controller processes data not supplied by you directly whose transmission is connected with the use of Internet communication protocols (by way of example, accesses to the page, quantity of data transferred, status message upon access, ID session numbers, IP addresses, URL addresses, etc.).


  1. Legal basis and purpose of processing          

a) Your personal data are processed without your explicit consent:

(i) to supply Services and their functions to the user. In this case, the performance of a contract you are a party to or the implementation of precontractual measures adopted at your request, is the legal basis of processing;

(ii) to ensure the technical operation of the website. In this case, the legitimate interest of the Controller in ensuring the proper technical operation of the website, is the legal basis of processing.

In addition, your personal data may be processed without your explicit consent also: iv. to fulfil administrative, accounting and tax obligations deriving from the contract; v. to comply with obligations laid down by law, a regulation, European legislation or an order issued by the Authorities; vi. to protect the vital interests of the data subject or of another natural person; vii. to perform a task carried out in the public interest or in the exercise of official authority vested in the Controller; viii. to pursue a legitimate interest of the Controller or a third party, at the limits and conditions set out in Art. 6 f) GDPR; ix. to exercise the rights of the Controller (by mere way of example, to defend a legal claim);

b) for the following purposes, though subject to your specific and unequivocal consent: i. to perform, whether directly and/or through third parties and/or business partners, statistical analyses, market surveys, promotional activities by sending emails, newsletters, commercial communications and/or advertising material on products and/or services offered by the Controller (marketing purposes). In fact, in this case, the user’s consent is the legal basis of processing.


  1. Provision of personal data

Providing data for the purposes listed in Art. 2 a) is mandatory, because failure to provide the requested personal data would make it impossible for the Controller to supply the services connected with website usage. Providing data for the purposes in Art. 2 b) is not mandatory.


  1. Methods of data processing

Personal data are processed by carrying out the operations indicated in Art. 4(1) no. 2) GDPR, namely any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction. Data will be processed in compliance with the principles of fairness, lawfulness and transparency. Data may be processed through automated methods that can store, manage and transmit them, using tools that, as reasonable and depending on the state of the art, can ensure data security and confidentiality through the application of suitable procedures that avoid the loss, unauthorised access, unlawful use and dissemination of data. Personal data may be stored both using IT systems and on paper and any other support deemed suitable for processing.


  1. Data storage period

In accordance with the principles enshrined in Art. 5 GDPR, the Controller will process personal data for no longer than is necessary to pursue the aforesaid purposes and to fulfil all legal obligations laid down for the same purposes. With respect to the marketing purposes set out in Art. 2 b), personal data may be processed for no more than 2 years from their collection. When the above storage periods end, the data will be erased or made anonymous. Further and more detailed information on storage periods may be requested by contacting the Controller at the addresses indicated in this policy.


  1. Data disclosure

The personal data processed by the Controller will not be disseminated, i.e. they will not be disclosed to unknown subjects, in no form of any kind, including making data available or simply allowing the consulting of such data. However, they may be made accessible to employees and/or collaborators of the Controller and/or to external parties that can sufficiently ensure they have adopted adequate legal, organisational technical measures so that data processing meets the requirements of the GDPR and protects the data subject’s rights. Specifically, data may be made accessible to: employees and/or collaborators of the Data Controller, as designated parties, persons in charge of processing and/or persons authorised to process personal data and/or System administrators; ii. Ecsa Group companies; iii. third-party companies or other subjects (e.g. banks, professional firms, consultants, insurance companies, etc.) that carry out outsourced activities on behalf of the Controller, as external Processors. The Controller may also disclose personal data to subjects who are entitled to have access thereto pursuant to law, regulations, European law, to the judicial authority and to all the subjects to which data must be disclosed under law.


  1. Transfer of data        

Personal data will be managed and stored on the servers of the Controller and/or of third-party companies designated and formally appointed as Processors, based in the European Union and in the European Economic Area (EEA) or otherwise in third countries, namely outside the European Union and the European Economic Area, recognised by the European Commission as countries that ensure an adequate level of protection (e.g. Switzerland) or by providing appropriate safeguards under Arts. 46 and 47, GDPR.


  1. Browsing data

The IT systems and software procedures that ensure website operation may acquire personal data, in the course of their normal operation, whose transmission is implied in the use of Internet communication protocols. This category of data includes the IP addresses or domain names of the user’s computers and terminals, the URI/URL addresses (“Uniform Resource Identifier” and “Uniform Resource Locator”) 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 number code indicating the status of the response given by the server (e.g. successful, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the user’s operating system and computer environment. These data, which are necessary for the use of web services, are also processed: i. to obtain statistical information about the use of our services (e.g. most visited pages, number of visitors per time slot or day, place of origin, etc.); ii. to check the proper performance of the services offered. These data are erased immediately after being processed (except in case of crime investigations by the judicial authority).
