HOW AND WHY DO WE PROCESS YOUR PERSONAL DATA?

The processing of your personal data is performed chiefly using electronic and telematic methods by Casanita S.a.s. and other parties who, appropriately selected for their trustworthiness and competence, carry out operations key to the fulfilment of the objective closely connected to the use of the website, its services and the purchase of products via the website (see also, section entitled “Persons who may process your personal data”).

The specific purposes for which the data is processed are summarized, on each occasion, in the information statement pursuant to art. 13, Italian Legislative Decree 196/2003, which is presented to the user when providing personal data.

As a general rule, data is processed for the supply of the following services available by accessing our website:

1. registration on the website, to make use of the related services;

2. subscription to specific and additional services, such as our newsletter and other similar information services concerning our activities, the creation of your Wish List and sharing its contents,

3. order handling and related activities;

4. payment management, including anti-fraud checks in the case of credit card payment; in this case, data provided during the purchase process (first name, last name, address, credit card number, delivery address if different to the invoice address) will be sent directly to the banking system which will use the data for verification purposes;

5. anti-fraud control; pursuant to Chapter IV, article 25, paragraph 6 “Transfer of personal data to Third Countries” of Directive 95/46/EC, data may be transferred to countries outside the EU or the European Economic Area that guarantee adequate levels of personal data protection. In any case, processing will be carried out according to the procedures set forth in this statement and the provisions of the law;

6. management of your requests: technical, sales related, on the progress of your orders and general information requests;

7. making contact with representatives of our departments (Press Relations, Business Development, Web Marketing, Procurement, Custmer Services);

In processing data that may, directly or indirectly, identify you, we will endeavor to observe the principle of strict necessity.

For this reason, we have configured the website in such a way that the use of your personal data is reduced to a minimum: therefore, no data is processed when the purposes sought in individual cases can be realized using anonymous data (such as, for example, market research intended to improve services) or using other methods that permit identification of the interested party only in cases of necessity or upon request from the authorities and police forces (such as, for example, data relating to traffic and your visits to the website and your IP address).

In some cases, as expressly indicated in the information statement, your data will be subject – with your prior express consent – to processing with the aim of creating profiles based on your preferences and your purchases. This has the objective of sending you information tailored to your requirements and interests. Except for the case provided in art. 130, paragraph 4, Italian Legislative Decree 196/2003 (in which the controller can use data to send advertising emails on its products and services, similar to those already purchased, unless this use has been refused), Casanita S.a.s. can use your data to send advertising on its services and products only with your consent.
