The Data Controller

The Data Controller is Sapopa S.r.l., with registered offices in Italy, Viale Trento n. 23, 36100 Vicenza (VI), VI-332415 REA, VAT 03527160240 (hereinafter: "Sapopa").

Optional or mandatory communication of data

The communication to Sapopa of personal data requested in several occasions may be necessary to achieve determined purposes, or may be optional.

The mandatory or optional nature of the communication of data is specified each time - with reference to the specific personal data requested - at the individual moment of the data collection, by marking with an asterisk (*) the mandatory information. The eventual refusal to communicate Sapopa certain data marked as mandatory implies the impossibility to achieve the main purpose of the data collection and could, for example, imply the impossibility for Sapopa to provide certain services available on the Website.

On the other side, the communication to Sapopa of additional data, other than those marked as essential, is optional and has no consequences in order to achieve the main purpose of the collection.

The rights of the user

The user has always the right to obtain confirmation from Sapopa as to whether or not personal data was processed, even if it has not yet been recorded, and to receive the communication of such data in an intelligible form.

c) an attestation that notices of the operations indicated in letters a) and b) was given, including as concerns their content, to those people whose data was communicated or disseminated, except in the event that such measure proves to be impossible or entails using means which are clearly disproportionate with regard to the right protected.

a) for legitimate reasons, to the processing of personal data concerning the user, even if it is pertinent to the purpose for which it was collected;

In processing data which could directly or indirectly identify the user, Sapopa undertakes to follow a principle of strict necessity. Therefore, the Website is configurated in such way that personal data is reduced to a minimum.

Any processing purpose other than the one specified for which the user has provided personal data, shall be demonstrated in the information and shall only be pursued by Sapopa upon obtaining the user’s express consent.

There are, moreover, processes for which the legislation does not request consent: for example, Sapopa may process personal data without obtaining consent when it is needed in order to perform a legal obligation or when it is necessary to perform the obligations that been contractually assumed towards the user.

Parties that may process personal data

Sapopa has decided to use third parties to process personal data for certain activities. Third parties who perform these operations have been appropriately selected and have the experience, capacity and reliability, and offer a suitable guarantee that they will fully comply with the current provisions on processing, including the data security profile.

These third parties have been appointed as “data supervisors”, and perform their activity according to the instructions given by Sapopa, and under its control. Sapopa periodically verifies that the supervisors have performed the tasks assigned to them in a timely manner and that they continue to provide appropriate guarantees that the provisions on the protection of personal data have been fully respected.

Personal data is then processed by the individuals in charge of the specific services; the class of agent that performs these activities is dependent on the purposes for which the data was provided, and is always indicated in the information presented to the user when personal data is released.
