The term personal data refers to the definition contained in the Article 4.1 of the Regulation, i.e. “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (“data subject”); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person (the “Personal Data“).

The Regulation provides that, before processing – by this term should be understood, according to the relevant definition contained in the Article 4.2 of the Regulations, “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, organization, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction;” (the “Processing“) – Personal Data, it is necessary that the person to whom such Personal Data belongs is informed of the reasons for which such data is requested and how it will be used.

The De Nigris Group, to allow navigation and your registration to its websites (the “Website“) gather your Personal Data as well as navigation data (including through cookies), following the policies in the relative CMP that appear on the Websites when you first access them.

You can change your preferences on navigation cookies at any time by clicking on the cog located in the lower-left corner of the window.

Each Data Controller will conduct the Processing of your Personal Data to allow you to:

·       get in touch with the company

·       send requests for information

·       apply for job positions

·       download free resources

·       use all the other services provided from time to time by the Website in which you are browsing

To allow the Data Controller to carry out the Processing it will be necessary to provide Personal Data marked as “mandatory”.

Such Processing will be lawful under Article 6.1, letter b) of the Regulations.

Suppose you fail to provide even one of the marked data. In that case, it will not be possible to process your Personal Data and, consequently, it will not be possible to respond to your requests and benefit from the services (provided through the Websites) for which you are required to provide Personal Data.

The Personal Data that will be requested from you for the pursuit of the above purposes will be those indicated in the registration and contact form, i.e., by way of example and without limitation: name, surname, e-mail address, telephone numbers of mobile users.

In this case, you will be able to view this Policy in the Privacy Policy section of the Website where you are browsing.

No Personal Data belonging to the particular categories referred to in Article 9 of the Regulations are processed.

In addition to the above purposes, your Personal Data may be processed to provide you with a better service and to promote products and services of your interest supplied and promoted by De Nigris Group.

Concerning these purposes (including direct marketing), under Article 6.1 letter f) of the Regulation and Article 130 paragraph 4 of the Italian Privacy Code (so-called “soft spam exception”), the De Nigris Group may carry out this activity based on their legitimate interest, regardless of your explicit consent and in any case up to your opposition or limitation (in accordance with the provisions of Section F, letter f). d) and f) of the Policy) to such Processing, as better explained in Recital 47 of the Regulation, in which it is “considered legitimate interest of the data controller to process personal data for direct marketing purposes”.

The choice mentioned above it is possible as a result of the assessments made by the Data Controller regarding the potential prevalence of your interests, rights and fundamental freedoms that require the protection of Personal Data over your legitimate interest in sending direct marketing communications.

Moreover, you may legitimately oppose the receipt of promotional communications at any time, without prejudice in any way to the Processing for other purposes.



Your Personal Data may be disclosed to specific entities the considered recipients of such Personal Data. Article 4, point 9) of the Regulation, defines as the recipient of a Personal Data “the natural or legal person, public authority, service or other body receiving communication of personal data, whether or not a third party” (the “Recipients”).

From this point of view, to correctly carry out all the processing activities necessary to pursue the purposes set out in this Privacy Policy, the following Recipients may find themselves in a position to process your Personal Data:

·       third parties which carry out part of the Processing and activities connected and instrumental on behalf of a Data Controller or the De Nigris Group. These subjects have been appointed as Data Processors, being understood individually by this expression, under Article 4 point 8) of the Regulation, “the natural or legal person, public authority, service or other body processing Personal Data on behalf of the Data Controller” (“Data Processor“);

·       individuals, employees and collaborators of a Data Controller or of the De Nigris Group, who have been entrusted with specific or multiple processing activities on your Personal Data. These individuals have been given specific instructions regarding the security and correct use of Personal Data and are defined, following Article 4 point 10) of the Regulation, as “persons authorized to process Personal Data under the direct authority of the Data Controller or the Data Processor” (the “Authorized Persons“).

Where required by law or to prevent or repress the commission of a crime, your Personal Data may be communicated to public bodies or judicial authorities without them being defined as Recipients. According to Article 4.9 of the Regulation, “public authorities that may receive communication of Personal Data in the context of a specific investigation in accordance with Union or Member State law are not considered Recipients”.



One of the principles applicable to the Processing of your Personal Data concerns the limitation of the period of storage, regulated by Article 5.1 letter e) of the Regulation which states that “Personal Data are stored in a form that allows the identification of the Data Subject for a time not exceeding the achievement of the purposes for which they are processed; Personal Data may be stored for longer periods provided that they are processed exclusively for purposes of archiving in the public interest, for scientific or historical research or statistical purposes, under Article 89, paragraph 1, without prejudice to the implementation of appropriate technical and organizational measures required by these Regulations to protect the rights and freedoms of the Data Subject”.

In light of this principle, your Personal Data will be processed by De Nigris Group only to the extent necessary for the pursuit of the purpose set out in Section C of this Policy.

In particular, your Personal Data will be processed for a period of time equal to the minimum necessary, as indicated in Recital 39 of the Regulations, i.e. until the termination of the contractual relationship between you and the Data Controller, without prejudice to a further period of storage that may be imposed by law as also provided for in Recital 65 of the Regulations.

Concerning the Processing carried out to achieve the other purposes set out in this Policy, the De Nigris Group may legitimately process your Personal Data until you communicate, in one of the ways set out in the Information Notice, your desire to limit or oppose the Processing. Any such limitation or opposition will, in fact, require the De Nigris Group to stop processing your Personal Data for such purpose.
