Privacy Policy

Last update and effective date: 25/05/2018

1. The importance of protecting your privacy

Thank you for sharing your personal information with us, we know how unpredictable the web can be and we appreciate your trust. This privacy policy informs you of our practices regarding the collection, use and sharing of information that you may provide to us through our platform (the "Platform") and applies whenever you use our platform. They also include the procedures implemented to ensure that the processing of your information complies with applicable data protection and privacy laws. We thank you for your trust and we will continue to act accordingly.

2. Purposes and legal basis of the data processing

Insofar as we obtain the consent of the data subject for the processing of personal data, Article 6(1)(a) of the General Data Protection Regulation of the EU (GDPR) serves as the legal basis for the processing of personal data. In the context of the processing of personal data necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is a party, the legal basis is given by Article 6 paragraph 1 point b of the GDPR. Insofar as the processing of personal data is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which our company is subject, the legal basis is provided by Art. 6, para. 1, point c of the GDPR. If the processing is necessary to safeguard a legitimate interest of our society or of a third party and if the interests, rights and fundamental freedoms of the data subject do not outweigh the first interest, the legal basis for the processing is given by Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR.

(1) is necessary for the conclusion or performance of a contract between you and the responsible person, (2) is admissible under European Community law or under the law of the Member State to which the responsible person is subject and where that law provides for appropriate measures to safeguard your rights and freedoms and your legitimate interests, or
(3) is taken with your express consent.
