Your Personal Data may be disclosed to specific subjects considered recipients of such Personal Data, being understood as such those natural or legal persons, public authority, agency or another body, whether or not a third party, which receive personal data communications.

Accordingly,  in order to correctly carry out all the Processing activities necessary to pursue the purposes referred to in this Privacy Policy, the following Recipients may be in a position to process your Personal Data:

  • third parties that on behalf of the Controller or the Joint Controllers carry out part of the Processing and/or related  activities instrumental to such processing. These subjects have been appointed as processors, i.e. natural or legal persons, public authority, agency or another body that processes Personal Data on behalf of the Controller;

SECTION 6 - PERSONAL DATA STORAGE PERIOD

One of the principles applicable to the processing of your Personal Data concerns the limitation of the retention period, governed by article 5, paragraph 1, point e) of the Regulation which provides that "Personal Data is kept in a form which permits identification of data subjects for no longer than is necessary for the purposes for which the personal data are processed; personal data may be stored for longer periods insofar as the personal data will be processed solely for archiving purposes in the public interest, scientific or historical research purposes or statistical purposes in accordance with article 89, paragraph 1, subject to implementation of the appropriate technical and organizational measures required by this Regulation in order to safeguard the rights and freedoms of the data subject".

In light of this principle, your Personal Data will be processed by the Controller only for the period necessary to pursue the purposes referred to in Section 3 of this Privacy Policy. In particular, we will keep your Personal Data for a period of time equal to the minimum necessary, as indicated by Recital 39 of the Regulation, for example, if the legal basis of the processing is a contract entered into between you and the Controller, we will keep your data up to ten years from the termination of the contractual relationships between you and the Controller, subject to a further retention period which may be imposed or permitted by law as also provided for in Recital 65 of the Regulation.

With regard to the processing for the realization of the purposes referred to in this Privacy Policy and for which consent has been requested, the Joint Controllers may lawfully process your Personal Data until you communicate, in one of the ways provided for in this Privacy Policy, your willingness to withdraw your consent to one or all the purposes for which your consent has been requested.  Any withdrawal  of consent will de facto require the Joint Controllers to cease the processing of your Personal Data for these purposes.

SECTION 7 - OBJECTION TO THE PROCESSING AND WITHDRAWAL OF THE CONSENT PROVIDED

As required by the Regulation, if you have given your consent to the processing of your Personal Data for one or more purposes for which it has been requested, you can, at any time, withdraw it totally and/or partially without affecting the lawfulness of the processing based on the consent given before the withdrawal.
