3. Types of data processed

4. Data Processing location

5. The purposes of the processing and legal basis

Personal data voluntarily provided will be processed by the data controller for the following purposes:
(i) performing the activities that Negg® has been engaged to conduct;
(ii) fulfilling legal obligations generally imposed on Negg®;
(iii) administrative-accounting. For the purposes of the application of the provisions regarding the protection of personal data, the processing performed for administrative-accounting purposes are those related to the performance of organizational, administrative, financial and accounting activities, regardless of the nature of the data processed. In particular, these objectives are pursued by the internal organizational activities, those functional to the fulfilment of contractual and pre-contractual obligations, the management of the employment relationship in all its phases, bookkeeping and the application of the rules on tax matters, Trade Unions, social security, health, hygiene and safety at work.
(iv) Information and promotions. The use of e-mail coordinates provided by the customer in the context of the sale of a product or service for direct sales of its products and services or collected through the “Contact us” area of the institutional website, is permitted for the purpose of sending information and newsletters. The party concerned, at the time of collection and at the time of sending each communication, is informed of the possibility to object at any time to the processing, easily and free of charge (Article 130 paragraph 4 of Legislative Decree 196/03).
(v) Security, pursuant to Legislative Decree 81/2008. With particular reference to identification data freely given by the guest/visitor to our offices (name, surname, institution or company), the processing has the exclusive purpose of ensuring compliance with corporate security procedures formally applied, in compliance with the applicable regulations (i.e annotation in the register/visitor database, assignment of temporary identification badge, applications of legal obligations in the field of safety at work).
As the Personal Data has to be processed for the purposes indicated under points (i) and (ii), (iii) and (v) above so that Negg® may perform its contractual and/or pre-contractual obligations and fulfil specific legal obligations, respectively, the Data Subject’s consent is not required for those purposes.

6. Methods for processing and storing data

In compliance with the provisions of Article 5 of the Regulation, Personal Data processed by the Negg® is:
(i) processed lawfully, fairly and in a transparent manner in relation to the Data Subject;
(ii) collected and registered for specified, explicit and legitimate purposes, and further processed in a manner that is compatible with those purposes;

(iv) accurate and, where necessary, kept up to date;
(v) processed in a manner that ensures appropriate security;

Specific security measures are adopted so as to prevent data loss or data usage in an unlawful or improper manner, as well as to prevent unauthorised access thereto.

7. Provision of personal data

Personal Data must be provided so as to allow Negg® to conduct the activities referred to in points (i) and (ii) paragraph No. 5. Therefore, if a Data Subject does not provide the relevant Personal Data, Negg® will be unable to properly perform the commercial activities it has been engaged to conduct and to fulfil its specific obligations provided under the law.
The provision of Personal Data for the purposes provided for under point (iv) of paragraph 5 is, by contrast, optional. Lack of consent from a Data Subject would, however, mean Negg® is unable to send the Data Subject updates or material containing information of a commercial nature and information relating to Negg®’s activities.
The processing will be carried out in both an automated and manual manner, with methods and tools aimed at safeguarding maximum security and confidentiality, by persons appointed as responsible for and in charge of processing in accordance with the applicable legislation.
The data will be stored for a period not exceeding the purposes for which such data were collected and subsequently processed, and in any case for the duration of the contractual or commercial relationship.
It is understood, however, that, once the contractual relationship with Negg®, and with it the purpose for which the Data has been processed, has come to an end, the Data Controller will, in any event, be required and/or entitled to continue to store Personal Data, in whole or in part, for certain purposes, as expressly required by specific provisions of the law (such as the obligation to keep accounting records for a period of 10 years provided for under Article 2220 of the Italian Civil Code) or to assert or defend a right in court (for example, in the event of possible disputes in respect of the activities conducted by Negg®).

8. Disclosure of personal data

The data object of the processing will not be divulged unless explicit authorization of the interested party has been granted after appropriate information. The data may instead be communicated to companies contractually linked to the Data Controller. The data may be disclosed to third parties belonging to the following categories:

With regard to the data that we are obliged to obtain in order to fulfil the obligations arising from existing contracts, and the obligations demanded by laws, regulations, Community legislation, or provisions issued by the Authorities legitimated to do so by law and by supervising and controlling entities, failure to provide such data will make it impossible to establish or continue the relationship, within the limits in which such data are necessary for the execution of the same. The provision of data to allow the Data Controller to send commercial communications is optional; the party concerned can object to the treatment at any time by exercising the rights provided for under the Applicable Regulations in the forms and methods indicated herein.
The Data Controller also states that any non-communication, or incorrect communication, of one of the mandatory information areas, will have the following consequences:
– the impossibility for the Data Controller to guarantee the adequacy of the processing itself to the contractual agreements for which it is performed;
-the possible lack of correspondence of the results of the processing to the obligations imposed by the fiscal, administrative and civil law to which it is addressed.
