This statement addresses the way that personal data of users of the Website will be processed.

1. Data subject to processing

As the Data Controller, ICA informs the Website users that the only data that will be processed (processing meaning any operation or set of operations performed on personal data, such as collecting, recording, organizing, structuring, retaining, adapting or altering, retrieving, consulting, using, disclosing by transmission, dissemination or any other form of making the data available, aligning or interconnecting, limiting, removing or destroying the data) is common personal information (name, company name, address, telephone, email address), which is disclosed when making a request for information and/or when entering into agreements for goods and services offered by the Controller, or acquired from third parties or through commercial activities.

2. Purposes, legal basis and processing methods.

The data collected shall only be used for the purposes specified below and to update users on ICA and general news, promotions, competitions and initiatives.

Legitimate interests of the Controller may, however, provide lawful grounds for processing in the cases referred to in points d), e) and f), where personal data is collected at fairs, conferences, events, training courses, seminars and/or other professional contacts, without prejudice to the right to immediately object to processing for said purposes. In such cases, the purpose of growing the business, implementing its respective products and services and seeking staff shall be deemed legitimate interests of ICA to justify the processing.

The data collected may be processed electronically or on paper and shall in any case be protected through appropriate security systems that are kept constantly up-to-date and stored in a safe and controlled environment.

Data shall be processed for the time necessary to fulfill the purposes mentioned above and, in any case, for no longer than ten years from the termination of the contractual relationship and/or provision of services i.e. from the collection of data for the purposes referred to in points d), e) and f).

3. Compulsory or optional provision of data.

The provision of data is optional, except where the information collected is required to be used to execute a contract or service requested by the user. In such case, the refusal to provide data shall make it impossible for ICA to implement the request.

ICA may also make data processing mandatory for sending newsletters to allow the Data Subject to participate in particular sales initiatives.

4. Data access and disclosure.

The personal data entered by the user shall be known and used by ICA employees for the sole purpose of implementing the purposes referred to in paragraph 2.

The data may be disclosed to other parent companies, subsidiaries or affiliated companies of ICA and belonging to the same Group of companies established in Italy, in the EU or in countries outside the EU, provided that, in the case of the latter, the law of the country of destination or transit ensures an adequate level of data protection and is subject to an adequacy decision by the European Commission in accordance with Article 45 of the GDPR or, failing that, provided that there are sufficient safeguards to ensure the rights of the Data Subjects and effective means of protection pursuant to Article 46 and 47 of the GDPR.

The data may be disclosed to providers of electronic communications services, banks, financial intermediaries, credit institutions and other funding bodies, managers of centralized IT systems (risk, fraud prevention centers, etc.), insurance companies, consultants and freelancers providing consultancy to ICA and assistance in debt recovery and dispute management, companies that perform packaging, shipping and delivery services or that organize the sending of emails and sales information, in their capacity as external data managers.
