How and why we process your personal data

The website serves an informational and commercial function, as it offers information about our Company’s products and price lists and delivers users to place orders directly online. In addition, this site is a digital communication tool.

The processing on personal data is carried out with mainly electronic and telematic methods by Accoppiatura Pratese and other subjects who, appropriately selected as to reliability and competence, carry out operations instrumental to the pursuit of the purposes strictly related to the use of the website, its services and the purchase of products through the website (see below, paragraph “Subjects who may process your personal data”).

In general, data are processed for the provision of the following services available by accessing our site:

To enable browsing (see Cookies Policy);

site registration, to take advantage of related services;

joining specific and additional services, such as our newsletter and other similar information services about our activity, creating your mailbox and sharing its contents, inviting your friends to join the world, letting other users know about you by sending us your photo and comments;

Order fulfillment and related activities;

management of payments, including anti-fraud control in case of payment by credit card; in this case, the data released during the purchase process (first name, last name, address, credit card number, delivery address if different from the billing address) will be sent to the person in charge of anti-fraud control and processed by him/her solely for this purpose;

handling of your inquiries: technical, commercial, about the progress of your orders, and inquiries in a broader sense;

making contact with the contacts of our services (Press Office, Business Development, Web Marketing, Purchasing Office, Customer Service);

In processing data that may, directly or indirectly, identify you, we try to adhere to a principle of strict necessity. In general, your data will be collected either by a specific procedure upon registration and access of the Restricted Area, or by automatic mode during the use of the Site, unless you access the non-restricted area anonymously.

For this reason, we have configured the site in such a way that the use of your personal data is kept to a minimum: therefore, the processing of your data is excluded when the purposes pursued in individual cases can be achieved by the use of anonymous data (as, for example, in market research aimed at improving services) or by other means that allow the data subject to be identified only when necessary or at the request of the authorities and the police (as, for example, for data relating to traffic and your stay on the website or your IP address).

In cases where it is necessary to collect personal information for other purposes, this will be clearly evidenced through disclosure, placed before the data collection form

In some cases, as expressly stated in the notice, your data will be subjected – with your express consent – to processing aimed at profiling you based on your preferences and purchases. This is for the purpose of sending you information targeted to your needs and interests. Except in the case provided for in ‘Article 130, paragraph 4, d. lgs. 196/2003 (in which the Holder may use your data to send you advertising e-mails about its own products and services, similar to what you have already purchased, unless you refuse such use), the Holder may use your data to send you advertising about its own services and products only with your consent.

Your data will be disclosed to third parties only with your express consent, except in cases where disclosure is required by law or is necessary for purposes provided for by law for the pursuit of which the data subject’s consent is not required; in such cases, the data may be made available to third parties who will process them independently and solely for the aforementioned purposes.

There are, however, treatments for which the legislation provides for the exclusion of consent: for example, we inform you that Accoppiatura Pratese may process your personal data without obtaining your consent when this is necessary to fulfill a legal obligation or when it is necessary to execute the obligations contractually undertaken towards you (as in the case in which you have purchased products or have requested to use specific services through our site).
