FAI FILTRI S.r.l. (VAT code PI: 01585440165 - Tax code), in the person of its temporary legal representative with offices in Strada Provinciale Francesca, 7 - 24040 Pontirolo Nuovo (BG), as the data controller, informs you that, in compliance with Italian Legislative Decree 196/2003 and the European Regulation 679/2016 (cd. GDPR) that governs and regulates the protection of personal data and their free circulation, your personal data will be processed in accordance with the above-mentioned provisions - respecting the principles of correctness, lawfulness, proportionality of interests and transparency and the safeguarding of your privacy and rights - for the purposes and with the methods and terms explained below.

-1- Purpose, method and legal basis for data processing

This privacy policy applies exclusively to online activities on this website, and is valid for those visiting or using the site. It does not apply to information gathered via channels other than this website. The aim of the privacy notice is to ensure the utmost transparency with regards the information that the site collects, and how that information is used.

Your personal data will be processed solely for purposes strictly linked with, and instrumental to, the fulfilment of obligations relating to relations with our company. In particular:

Personal data are processed by means of the operations indicated in Italian Legislative Decree 196/2003 and art. 4 no. 2) GDPR, and more specifically: collection, registration, organisation, storage, consultation, processing, modification, selection, extraction, comparison, use, interconnection, blockage, communication, deletion and destruction.

Personal data will be processed by the person(s) in charge, or those authorised, using the owner's storage media and respecting all precautionary measures to ensure security and confidentiality. The data will not be used for profiling or in automated decision-making processes.

The data will be stored by the data owner and by the persons that he/she has delegated for data processing. In any case, your personal data will be stored and processed within the boundaries of the European economic area and only transferred outside that area with your explicit consent.

If you provide comments and/or personal data when requesting information and/or specific services (e.g. a request for commercial information, registration on our portal, subscription to our newsletter), such data will be intended as voluntarily supplied by the user when requesting the service. By entering a comment or any other information, the user explicitly accepts this privacy notice. This website may process certain personal data on the basis of the data owner's legitimate interests, as envisaged by Italian Legislative Decree 196/2003 and art. 6 of the European Regulation 679/206.

The data received will be used exclusively for the purpose of providing the service requested, and only for the time needed to provide the service. Information that website users choose to make public, via the services and tools at their disposition, are knowingly and voluntarily supplied: this site cannot therefore be held responsible for any violation of the law. The user is responsible for ensuring that he/she is authorised to enter the personal data of third parties or contents protected by national and international regulations.

The data gathered by the website during its use are employed solely for the purposes indicated above, and stored only for the time strictly needed to carry out the activities listed. Such data will never be handed over to third parties for any reason whatsoever unless legitimately requested by the judicial authorities in the specific cases envisaged by the law.

-2- Nature of the data collection and consequences of failure to provide data

Like all websites, this one uses log files containing information gathered in an automated manner during users' visits. The following information may be gathered:

- Internet protocol address (IP)

- type of browser and parameters of the device used to connect to the site

- name of the Internet service provider (ISP)

- date and time of the visit

- the web page visited previously (referral), and the next one

- possibly the number of clicks

The above information is processed in an automated manner and gathered in aggregate form only, to ensure that the site is functioning properly, for security reasons, and for the legitimate interests of the owner (as laid down in the regulations in force).

For security purposes (spam filters, firewall, virus detection), automatically recorded data may also include personal data such as the IP address, which may be used - in compliance with the relative laws - to block any possible attempts to damage the site itself or cause damage to other users, or in any case to prevent harmful or illegal activities. These data are never used to identify or profile the user, but only to safeguard the website and its users or for the legitimate interests of the data owner.

By using or consulting this website, visitors and users explicitly accept this privacy notice and consent to the processing of their personal data in relation to the methods and aims described below, including any possible diffusion to third parties if this is necessary in order to supply a service. Supplying your data - and therefore consenting to its gathering and processing - is optional, but denying your consent may make it impossible to provide certain services and the use of the site may consequently be less profitable. Consenting to the use of your data for marketing and/or advertising purposes (the sending of e-mails and/or publicity information) is optional, and requires not only the provision of your personal data but also an explicit request from you via the opt-in function on this website.

-3- Times and terms

The data owner, the persons in charge, and the persons authorised to deal with data processing will handle all personal data for the time needed to fulfil the purposes outlined above and, in any case, for no longer than 10 years after relations have ceased, where envisaged or required by the regulations in force.

With regards the data supplied in order to receive commercial information, newsletters and regular notices, they will continue to be processed until an "unsubscribe" request is received.

-4- Data communication and diffusion

For the purposes of the contract (i.e. the services you have requested) and for the aims listed above, your personal data may be passed on to:

·               physical and juridical persons (e.g. legal, administrative and fiscal studios, auditing firms, carriers and forwarding agents, data processing centres, IT consultants, suppliers, etc.) if necessary for the aims listed above

·               banks, for the purpose of managing receipts and payments

·               factoring or credit recovery companies

·               our delegated contract workers and employees, within the sphere of their relative duties
