Under no circumstances are the data collected through the site disseminated.

Purposes of the processing

Personal data (article 4 of the Regulation “....... personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (…….); an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person) provided by users accessing the site by sending an e-mail to the data controller are only used for the purpose of carrying out the service requested and will not be disclosed to third parties or disseminated, unless the disclosure is legally required or is strictly necessary in order to fulfil user requests or following the written consent of the user.

By its very nature, the optional, explicit and voluntary sending of e-mail (also using the form in the “Contact” section) involves the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s email address, necessary in order to respond to requests, as well as any other personal data included in the message.

Fonderie San Zeno processes personal data within the limits of what is strictly necessary in order to perform the functions for which the service is requested, excluding processing when the objectives pursued can be achieved through anonymous data or methods that mean the user is only identified if necessary. In requests for information through the “Contacts” section, we invite our users not to send names or other personal data of third parties that are not strictly necessary, nor any sensitive and/or judicial data pursuant to Article 9 of the Regulation (“sensitive data” means personal data revealing racial or ethnic origins, religious, philosophical or other beliefs, political opinions, membership of parties, trade unions, associations or organisations of a religious, philosophical, political or trade union nature, as well as data concerning health or sex life ; “judicial data” means personal data revealing measures referred to in Article 3, paragraph 1, letters a) to o) and r) to u), of the Italian Presidential Decree of 14 November 2002, no. 313, on the subject of criminal records, the register of financial penalties arising from offences and related pending charges, or the status of defendant or suspect under Articles 60 and 61 of the Italian code of criminal procedure).

If a user sends personal and contact data of any third party in their requests, they acknowledge that this operation represents a processing of personal data with respect to which the user acts as an autonomous controller, assuming all the obligations and responsibilities envisaged by the Regulation. In this regard, the user provides a guarantee to Fonderie San Zeno that any data of third parties has been acquired by the user themselves in full compliance with the Regulation (consent also documented in writing and issued by the third party). On this point, the user grants full indemnity with respect to any dispute, claim or request for compensation for damages caused by processing received by Fonderie San Zeno from any third party concerned due to the provision of data indicated by the user in violation of the rules on the protection of personal data.

The lawfulness of the processing of personal data derives from the need to pursue the legitimate interests of the data controller or third parties on the condition that they do not prevail over the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the data subject that require the protection of personal data, in particular if the data subject is a minor. The lawfulness of the processing also derives from the explicit consent of the data subject to the processing of their personal data for one or more specific purposes.
