This Privacy Policy is intended to describe the purposes and modalities through which Narda Safety Test Solutions S.r.l., acting as Controller (“Company” or “Controller”), collects and processes the personal data related to the user (“User”) who interacts with the website [www.narda-sts.it] (“Site”) and with the various services offered by it.

The information contained in this Privacy Policy is provided pursuant to Article 13 of Regulation (EU) 679 of 27 April 2016 (“Regulation”), as well as pursuant to the applicable domestic rules and regulations and the Measures issued by the Data Protection Authority and the Guidelines of European Authorities.

The information about the processing of personal data is disclosed exclusively for the Site and the processing carried out by the Company, but not for the processing operations carried out by third parties through other websites the User may visit through a link. The Company shall not be liable for such additional processing operations, as the User has to refer to the individual Privacy Policies of third party websites.

 

  1. Controller and place of the processing

 

The Controller is Società Narda Safety Test Solutions S.r.l., with offices in Via Benessea, 29/B – 17035 Cisano sul Neva (SV).

The data are prevalently processed at the Controller’s office, by the technical staff of the Company appointed as person in charge of the processing, within the territory of the European Union and, in relation to the services entrusted to, or offered by, third parties, also outside the Italian State and/or the European Union. In the case of transfer of the data to Countries that do not ensure standards of protection equal to Italy’s, the Company undertakes to take all the measures necessary for such transfer.

 

  1. Modalities to process the data

 

The Company shall process the User’s data by adopting all the appropriate security measures intended to prevent any unauthorised access, as well as the unauthorised disclosure, modification, or destruction of the data. The data shall be processed both with manual and computer and/or telecommunication means, with organisational modalities and logics strictly connected with, and limited to, the specified purposes.

 

  1. Purposes and legal basis of data processing

 

The Company, through the Site, may process the data of the User for the following purposes:

 

  1. Purposes connected with the collection of applications through the “Work with us” section. The Company shall give the User the chance to send their applications to work for Narda Safety Test Solutions S.r.l. by email. For this purpose, the Company shall acquire and use the personal information provided by the User exclusively for the purpose of selecting and managing applications. However, Users are required to refrain from including in their resume and/or in the data disclosure form, any sensitive data (relating for example, without limitation, to their state of health, political opinions, and sexual life), apart from those that are strictly necessary pursuant to law for the purposes of selecting and assessing resumes (for example, the fact of belonging to categories enjoying special protection).

 

  1. Contacting the Company The Company shall give the User the chance to send notices to the Company, in addition to questions and requests for information on the Company’s activities, initiatives, and services. To this subject, the personal data disclosed by the User (for example, email address, possible telephone number and/or other information spontaneously provided to the User) shall be processed by the Company to receive, correctly manage, and answer the User’s communications. The legal basis of the processing is represented by the performance of the service expressly requested by the User, and any refusal to provide the personal data shall cause the impossibility for the Company to manage and answer the notice or request for information.

 

  1. Sending promotions and other newsletters and notices, by email to the address supplied by the User, in connection with services offered by the Company that are similar to those already provided to the User. In these cases, the User’s consent is unnecessary, but the same may at any time object to the processing. To enable the User to easily object to the sending of promotional communications, any notice related to such services shall give the User the chance to reject additional similar communications.

The legal basis of the processing of the User’s data for such purposes is represented by the legitimate interest of the Company in sending the User informational notices and updates related to services similar to those used by the User and potentially interesting them, pursuant to recital no. 47 of the Regulation.

 

  1. Disclosure of the data to the Company’s distributors for marketing purposes. In the context of requests for contact to the Company, the User may freely express, by selecting the appropriate tick box, their consent to the use of personal and contact data entered by them (for example, email address) for the purpose of disclosing the data to the Company’s distributors, who may send the User their own marketing communications, such as newsletters, invitations to take part in events, informational and promotional material on services and/or offers, both through automated means (e.g., email, SMS) and traditional means (e.g., ordinary mail, telephone calls with operator). In this case, the legal basis of the processing is the consent expressed by the User, who may freely choose whether or not to consent to this notice: as a matter of fact, giving consent for this purpose is an absolutely optional choice of the User that shall in no way prevent the use of the Company’s services and of the Site. The User may object to the sending of notices and revoke their consent, even partially for individual channels of communication, by contacting the individual distributors.

 

  1. Pursuance of the legitimate interests of the Company and/or third parties. The User’s data may also be used for the exercise of the rights and legitimate interests of the Company and/or third parties, for example, the right of defence in court, the management of complaints and situations of litigation, the recovery of receivables, fraud prevention and/or unlawful activities. In these cases, even if the disclosure of the personal data of the User is not compulsory, it is in any case necessary in that such data are strictly connected and expedient to the pursuance of the said legitimate interests, which do not prevail on the fundamental rights and freedoms of the User, and any refusal to disclose them could cause the impossibility to provide the services required (for example, requesting information to the Company).

 

  1. Fulfilling legal obligations and/or applicable obligations. The Company may also use the personal data disclosed by the User or otherwise acquired during the interaction of the User with the Site for purposes related to the fulfilment of legal obligations, regulations, domestic and EU legislation, and purposes resulting from provisions issued by authorities empowered to do so by law, which represent the legal basis of the processing, without the need to obtain the prior consent of the User.

 

  1. Performing aggregate statistics on an anonym basis in order to improve the performances and services offered by the Company through the Site. In this case, no consent shall be required of the User, in that the processing specified shall be carried out exclusively on anonym data.
