Type of data processed, processing purpose and legal bases
The IT systems and the software procedures for the functioning of this website acquire, during normal exercise, various personal data, the transmission of which is implicit when using Internet communication protocols. This information is not collected in order to be associated with identified data subjects, but by its very nature could allow users to be identified through the processing and association with data held by third parties, carried out only after an explicit request by the judicial authority. This category includes IP addresses or the domain names of computers used by users who connect with the site, addresses in URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) notation of requested resources, the time the request is made, the method used to submit the request to the server, the file size obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the response status from the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters related to the user's operating system and computer environment. These data, which are deleted immediately after their processing, unless express consent is requested for profiling purposes in the manner indicated in the following paragraph "Data collection points", is used by Cosmetica Italia for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on use of the site and to verify its correct functioning. These data could be used to ascertain responsibility in the event of hypothetical computer crimes against the site. In all other cases, data on web contacts currently do not remain for more than seven days.
Data provided voluntarily by the user
The Company may collect personal data provided voluntarily by the user. Collection can take place, for example, when the user subscribes to the newsletter, decides to submit an application for their company or requests information.
Third parties in compliance with a legal obligation or to protect the rights of the Company. The communication of the personal data of users may take place vis-a-vis institutions, the police or judicial, administrative, regulatory or public security authorities, in the context of legal or administrative proceedings, or in order to fulfil a legal obligation or protect our rights, also in court.
Data of minors
The Company does not collect or intentionally retain the personal data of individuals under the age of 18, nor does it intentionally allow such minors to use the Website.
Users under the age of 18 are asked not to register for the services on the Website or provide personal data.
Other information stored on the user's device cannot be accessed by the Company through cookies, even in locations where the cookies are downloaded. Cookies cannot load codes of any kind, or carry viruses or malware. They are not harmful to the user's computer or device.
This site also uses its own and third-party profiling cookies. User consent is required for the use of profiling cookies.
The aforementioned cookies can be temporary (when they are automatically deleted at the end of the session), permanent (when they remain stored on the user's hard disk, unless the user deletes them), first party (when they are set and managed directly by the site operator) and third party (when they are managed by a domain different from the one visited by the user).
Processing place and methods
Personal data are processed in paper format and/or with automated tools. Specific security measures are taken to prevent the loss, illicit or improper use of data and their unauthorised access.
Transfer of data abroad. No transfers of personal data will be carried out outside of the European Economic Area in the pursuit of the aforementioned purposes. Internet communications such as e-mails or webmails may transit through different countries before being delivered to recipients. The Company cannot be held responsible for any unauthorised access or loss of personal information outside of its own control.
We retain the personal data of users only for the time strictly necessary in order to provide services or to achieve the purposes for which the data was collected, or to comply with legal obligations. After this period, the personal data will be deleted or rendered anonymous.
In the event that we have collected personal data based on the user's consent and no longer have any other valid legal grounds to continue with its processing, if the user subsequently revokes his/her consent, we will delete the personal data covered by such revocation.
The Company adopts security measures in order to safeguard the confidentiality of users' personal data. Nevertheless, due to the nature of the Internet, continuous technological evolution and other factors beyond our control, the security of data transmission over the Internet cannot be fully guaranteed and, therefore, we cannot ensure or guarantee the security of the data and of the information that the user transmits to us and the user recognises and accepts that such transmission is at his/her own risk. Users are recommended to take appropriate precautions when using the site, such as keeping their login credentials strictly confidential, periodically changing their password, and updating their system.
