Types of data processed, purposes and legal basis of the processing

Navigation data
During their normal operation, the IT systems and software procedures which operate this website acquire some personal data the transmission of which is implicit in the use of Internet communications protocols. These data are not gathered for association with identified subjects, but by their very nature, when processed or associated with data held by third parties, they might allow users to be identified.
This category of data includes the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users who log onto the site, the addresses in URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) notation of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used when submitting the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in reply, the numerical code indicating the server’s response status (concluded successfully, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the user’s operating system and IT environment.
These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information concerning the use of the website and to check that it is operating correctly and are deleted immediately after processing. The data might be used in order to identify those responsible in the event of IT crimes against the site; except in this case, data concerning web contacts are not currently held for more than a few months.
The legal basis for the treatment is therefore the data controller's lawful interest in the provision and improvement of the services supplied by the website.

Data supplied voluntarily by the user
If users/visitors who connect to this website send their personal data in order to access specific services (unsolicited job applications, replies to job offers or requests for information/documents) or to submit enquiries by email, this may involve the acquisition by the Piovan Group of the sender's address and/or any other personal data, which will be processed solely in order to reply to the request, or for the provision of any services.
The optional, explicit, voluntary dispatch of emails to the addresses provided on this site, or the compilation of specific data input forms in order to obtain services/information or submit enquiries, leads to the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s address, necessary in order to reply to the enquiry, and any other personal data included.
The personal data of users who submit inquiries are processed for the sole purpose of providing the service or function requested unless otherwise envisaged by any additional specific data processing information provided in the specific login or registration pages. Specific summarised information, and any requests for consent, if necessary, will be progressively provided or displayed on the pages of the site relating to individual optional services.
The legal basis for the data processing is, therefore, the fulfilment of contractual obligations (requests) provided by the applicant user/consent.
