First, we need to define, and it is important for you to understand, the following expressions:
"Personal Data". It generically represents any kind of information about a physical person, whose particularities can lead, directly or indirectly, to its identification. Here you have, by way of example, but not limited to: name and surname, geographical address, any identification number, political orientation, sexual orientation, email address, any location information and any other online identifier such as the device used to access the Internet, IP address, or cookie information, etc..
"Processing of personal data". It means any operation or set of operations performed on personal data or on personal data sets with or without the use of automated means such as collecting, recording, organizing, structuring, storing, adapting or modifying, extracting, consultation, use, disclosure to third parties by transmission, dissemination or in any other way, joining or combining, blocking / restraining, deleting or destroying.
"Personal Data Operator". It means any physical person or legal entity, private or public, including authorities, institutions and territorial structures, which determines the purposes and means of processing of personal data. In this case Personal Data Operator (in the sense of EU Regulation 2016/679) is GDP Shield S.R.L. legal entity with its registered headquarters in Negoi 29, the Registry Number J32/1120/2018.
"Consent". It means the informed and freely expressed agreement to the use of your personal data for the purposes described.
With regards of your agreement, in the context of collection and use of personal data, we have taken all the technical measures to provide you with this detailed agreement, so you can have a crisp clear experience, from the first to the last interaction with our website.
To fulfill our commercial purpose.
Our commercial purpose, by reference to the subject matter of our business, is personal data protection and privacy services, and the new rules of personal data protection (GDPR), which are opposed to us, are part of this context.
To improve our services.
We always want to offer you the best online experience and for this we can collect and use certain information about your behavior and preferences when using the website, or we can conduct market research directly or through partners.
To improve your marketing activity
We want to keep you informed about the best offers for the products / services you are interested in. In this sense, we may send you any type of message (such as: email / SMS / phone / mobile push / webpush / etc.) containing general and thematic information about similar or complementary products or services which you may have purchased, information on offers or promotions, as well as other commercial communications.
To defend our legitimate interests
There may be situations in which we use or transmit information to protect our rights and our commercial activity. These situations may include:
- measures to protect the website and platform users against cyber-attacks:
- measures to prevent and detect fraud attempts;
- transmission of information to the competent public authorities;
- other risk management measures.
We therefore commit ourselves:
- protect the privacy of your data, which is a top priority for our company management;
- to use this data for the sole purpose of providing you with a personalized experience on our website as well as on the online platforms that we promote our products and services (Facebook and Google, etc.).
Your personal data will be used in a number of ways, only if we have your consent, depending on their nature and specificity. Below we have detailed all types of data we collect and how we use them later:
In case you've agreed to collect them, we'll be able to collect details about the browser used, the IP address, data about the device, such as the hardware model, operating system version, device unique identifiers, and mobile network information, including the phone number. We use this data to determine how you use our site to make the necessary changes to help you find the information you are looking for;
Unique device identifiers
A unique device identifier (sometimes called a universally unique ID or UUID) is a string of characters that is incorporated into a device by its manufacturer and can be used to uniquely identify that device (for example an IMEI-number of a mobile phone). Different device identifiers vary in how permanent they are, whether they can be reset by users, and how they can be accessed. A given device may have several different unique device identifiers. Unique device identifiers can be used for various purposes, including security and fraud detection, syncing services such as a user’s email inbox, remembering the user’s preferences and providing relevant advertising.
We could also use:
Given the current state of the technology, implementation costs and the nature, purpose, context and purposes of the processing, as well as the risk of various possibilities of affecting the rights and freedoms of individuals, we have put in place a series of appropriate technical and organizational measures to ensure a level of appropriate security by:
- pseudonymization and encryption of personal data;
- the ability to ensure the confidentiality, integrity, availability and ongoing resilience of processing systems and services;
In other words, the GDPR requires that information is protected by "appropriate technical and organizational measures", including the encryption of personal data and the ability to ensure the continued confidentiality of systems and services. Digital certificates (including TLS / SSL) and encryption are de facto requirements for all confidential communications across the online world for more than 30 years and are among the most ubiquitous paradigms existing today.
Application data cache
An application data cache is a data repository on a device. It can, for example, enable a web application to run without an internet connection and improve the performance of the application by enabling faster loading of content.
Browser web storage
Browser web storage enables websites to store data in a browser on a device. When used in "local storage" mode, it enables data to be stored across sessions (for example, so that the data are retrievable even after the browser has been closed and reopened). One technology that facilitates web storage is HTML 5.
A device is a computer that can be used to access Google services. For example, a device could be a desktop, tablet or smartphone.
Non-personally identifiable information
This is information that is recorded about users so that it no longer reflects or references an individually identifiable user.
A pixel tag is a type of technology placed on a website or within the body of an email for the purpose of tracking activity on websites, or when emails are opened or accessed, and is often used in combination with cookies.
Sensitive Categories and Sensitive Personal information
An advertising category may be sensitive if it relates to topics such as race, religion, sexual orientation, or health. When showing you tailored ads, we may associate an identifier from cookies or similar technologies with topics such as "Cooking and Recipes" or "Air Travel," but not with sensitive categories. We impose a similar policy on our advertisers. Regarding Sensitive personal information, this is a particular category of personal information relating to confidential medical facts, racial or ethnic origins, political or religious beliefs or sexuality.
