TYPES OF DATA PROCESSED

Navigation data
This information is not gathered to be associated with the identified data subjects, but by its very nature it may be used to identify users through processing and matching with information held by third parties. Note that the above-mentioned data may be used to assess liability in the event of any cyber crimes against the website of Piteco S.p.A. or

other websites connected or linked to it: without prejudice to this possibility, currently the data on web contacts do not persist for more than a few days.

Data provided voluntarily by the user
The request to send an email to the addresses specified in the appropriate section of the Piteco website entails the subsequent acquisition of some personal data of the requesters, including their email address, which is required to answer the requests.

Collection of information
The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of emails to the addresses provided on this website entails the subsequent acquisition by Piteco of the sender’s email address, which is necessary to respond to the sender’s requests (including to send informational materials concerning its products/services), as well as any other relevant personal data. The provision of personal information is optional. The Website visitor’s failure to provide the data, all or in part, shall make it entirely or partially impossible to achieve the purposes described in this disclosure and therefore impossible to respond to any requests sent through the Website.

This information is not gathered to be associated with the identified data subjects, but by its very nature it may be used to identify users through processing and matching with information held by third parties.

If an erasure request is made, the data shall be stored for the period permitted by law, without prejudice to any specific legal obligations on the storage of documentation or for public safety reasons. In these cases, the automatic erasure of the data shall be guaranteed. After that period, the data shall be transformed into anonymous form, so as not to permit the identification, even indirectly, of the data subjects.
