We inform you that with each data collection form we may ask for your consent to send you commercial communications. If you give your express consent by ticking the boxes on the relevant forms, we would be able to contact you by ordinary post, telephone, email, SMS, instant messaging applications, social media, Push notifications or any other means of electronic communication, to give you information about products and/or services which we believe might be of interest to you.

Depending on the options you authorise, the communications could refer to products and/or services of the COMPANY and/or COMERESA (depending on who will be sending them), products and/or services of different companies within the Vocento group (whose details can be consulted by the following link), and products and/or services of third parties from different sectors of activity (employment and training, IT and technology, leisure and entertainment, food and gastronomy, furniture and domestic appliances, antiques, interior decoration and décor, organisations and associations, auctions, DIY, pets, financial services and insurance, property, vehicles and motoring, items for men/women, travel and tourism, products for children, music and books, health and wellbeing, society, sports) selected by the COMPANY and/or by COMERESA (depending on who will be sending the communications).

Finally, with regard to publicity banners or posters or other advertising methods which appear on the Website, the COMPANY only transmits this publicity, so it is not covered by the regulations regarding services which are provided by the COMPANY, or its privacy policy.

COOKIES

Like other Internet portals, the Website uses technology known as “cookies” to collect information about the way the Website is used. If you wish to obtain detailed information about the way the COMPANY uses cookies, you can consult the Policy regarding Cookies here, or click at any time on the link at the bottom of the main page.

TRANSFER OF PERSONAL DATA

We will not pass your personal details to other companies without your prior consent, unless the details need to be given in order to provide the service, or in order to maintain the relationship with you.

In the case of the Website accepting advertisements and offers from third parties, you accept that the personal details you have previously provided may be passed to the advertising companies when you show an express interest in a particular product or service, so that the advertising company which is responsible for it may contact you. They may only do this to give you further information about the product or service or, where relevant, to carry out the corresponding transaction, if it is essential that they have your details in order to provide the service you have requested correctly.

If it is not necessary to provide your personal details in order for the contracted service to be provided correctly, then on the data collection forms we tell you the purpose for which the data will be treated, and the identity and sectors of activity of anyone to whom it will possibly be given. You will be able to decide in advance whether or not to agree to the data being passed on.

If third parties need to access the data in order to provide a service which has been subcontracted by the COMPANY or COMERESA, the necessary details will be provided.

SECURITY

The COMPANY has tried to implement and maintain the levels of security which are demanded by law to protect the personal data of users against accidental loss and access, unauthorised treatment and revelation, given the technology, the nature of the stored data and the risks to which it is exposed. However, transferring information via the Internet is not totally secure; for that reason, and although the COMPANY makes its best efforts to protect users’ details, the security of these cannot be guaranteed when they are in transit to the Website. Therefore, all the information you provide will be sent on your own account and at your own risk. Once your details have been received, the COMPANY will use rigorous procedures and security functions to impede any unauthorised access.

THIRD PARTY SITES

The Website may include links to sites controlled by third parties. You should remember that when using a link to access another site from our Website, our Privacy Policy and Policy regarding Cookies cease to apply. The COMPANY does not accept any type of responsibility with regard to the privacy and treatment of data by other websites. Navigation and interaction on any other website, including those which are linked via our Website, are subject to the regulations and policies of that site. We recommend that you read the policies regarding treatment of data and privacy of the websites which you visit, through the link on the Website or any other manner. If you would like more information, there is a link to our Conditions of Use at the bottom of the main page.

CONFIDENTIALITY

The personal details which we collect via the Website or through different communications we have with you will be treated confidentially. We promise to keep them secret, as required by law.

USER REGISTRATION AND PASSWORD

In order to be able to access certain services, you will need to provide us with certain information. This information must be true, and it is prohibited to use aliases or other ways of hiding your identity, unless a form specifically asks you to create a user name, nickname or alias.

When creating user names or passwords, or providing any information which may be required on the different forms, you may not use expressions or graphic-denominative combinations which are vulgar, insulting, coincide with brand names, commercial names, the signs of establishments, social denominations, advertising expressions, names or pseudonyms of people in public life or famous people without authorisation, and in general anything which contravenes the law, morality or generally accepted good behaviour.

It is essential that you keep reference numbers, passwords and access codes that you create or are provided to you safe at all times. You will be held responsible if your personal account is used by anyone else, with or without authorisation. You therefore promise to make diligent use of such information, not to make it available to third parties, and to notify us if it is lost or stolen.

CHILDREN

Children are not permitted to use services which are available via the Website without prior authorisation from their parents, guardians or legal representatives, who are solely responsible for everything the children in their charge may do via the Website. This includes filling in forms with the children’s personal details and, where applicable, ticking the boxes which appear on them. In this case, as the COMPANY does not have the ability to control whether or not the users are children, it suggests that parents or guardians use mechanisms which exist to prevent children accessing the Website and/or providing personal details without their supervision. The COMPANY admits no responsibility whatsoever in this respect.

EXERCISING RIGHTS

You can revoke your consent regarding the treatment of your data, as long as such revocation is legally possible, and at any time you may exercise your rights of access, rectification, cancellation and opposition to the treatment of your personal data, by notifying us in writing and attaching a document to prove your identity. Such notification may be sent to the addresses indicated here, putting “Data Protection” as the reference.

If you have any queries regarding the Privacy Policy, you can also contact the COMPANY or COMERESA at the same addresses.
