1. Data controller and Data Protection Officer

Alloys Italia, as identified at the top of this Privacy Policy, is the data controller regarding all personal data processing carried out through the Website.
To get in touch with Alloys Italia’s Data Protection Officer, please contact: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

2. Personal Data processed

When you use the Website, Alloys Italia will collect and process information regarding you (as an individual) which allows you to be identified either by itself, or together with other information which has been collected. Alloys Italia may also be able to collect and process information regarding other persons in this same manner, if you choose to provide it to Alloys Italia
This information may be classified as “Personal Data” and can be collected by Alloys Italia both when you choose to provide it (e.g., when you subscribe to the newsletter or request other
Services provided by Alloys Italia over the Website) or simply by analysing your behaviour on the Website.
Personal Data which can be processed by Alloys Italia through the Website are as follows:

a. Name, contact details and other Personal Data

In various sections of the Website – including, in particular, if you decide to create an account on the Website – you will be asked to submit information about yourself, such as your name, phone / mobile numbers, e-mail address, date of birth, country of residence and address. Additionally, when subscribing or signing up to receive Services, you might be asked to provide information as to your preferred mode of payment – PayPal, bank transfer or credit card.
In addition, whenever you participate in surveys and other promotions which may be available on the Website, as well as whenever you communicate with Alloys Italia through the contact details provided in the Website or with Customer Service, Alloys Italia may collect additional information which you choose to provide.

b. Other persons’ Personal Data

As mentioned in the previous section, certain areas of the Website include free text fields where you can write messages to Alloys Italia, or otherwise allow you to post various types of content on the Website. These messages and content may (inadvertently or not) include Personal Data related to other persons.
In any situation where you decide to share Personal Data related to other persons, you will be considered as an independent data controller regarding that Personal Data and must assume all inherent legal obligations and responsibilities. This means, among other things, that you must fully indemnify Alloys Italia against any complaints, claims or demands for compensation for damages which may arise from the processing of this Personal Data, brought by the third parties whose information you provide through the Website.
As Alloys Italia does not collect this information directly from these third parties (but rather collects them, indirectly, from you), you must make sure that you have these third parties’ consent before providing any information regarding them to Alloys Italia; if not, then you must make sure there is some other appropriate grounds on which you can rely to lawfully give Alloys Italia this information.

c. Browsing data

The Website’s operation, as is standard with any websites on the Internet, involves the use of computer systems and software procedures, which collect information about the Website’s users as part of their routine operation. While Alloys Italia does not collect this information in order to link it to specific users, it is still possible to identify those users either directly via that information, or by using other information collected – as such, this information must also be considered Personal Data.
This information includes several parameters related to your operating system and IT environment, including your IP address, location (country), the domain names of your computer, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of resources you request on the Website, the time of requests made, the method used to submit requests to the server, the dimensions of the file obtained in response to a request, the numerical code indicating the status of the response sent by the server (successful, error, etc.), and so on.
These data are used to compile statistical information on the use of the Website, as well as to ensure its correct operation and identify any faults and/or abuse of the Website. Save for this last purpose, these data are not kept for more than 7 business days.

d. Cookies

Definitions, characteristics, and application of standards

Cookies are small text files that may be sent to and registered on your computer by the websites you visit, to then be re-sent to those same sites when you visit them again. It is thanks to these cookies that those websites can “remember” your actions and preferences (e.g., login data, language, font size, other display settings, etc.), so that you do not need to configure them again when you next visit the website, or when you change pages within a website.
Cookies are used for electronic authentication, monitoring of sessions and storage of information regarding your activities when accessing a website. They may also contain a unique ID code which allows tracking of your browsing activities within a website, for statistical or advertising purposes. Some operations within a website may not be able to be performed without the use of cookies which, in certain cases, are technically necessary for operation of the website.
When browsing a website, you may also receive cookies from websites or web servers other than the website being visited (i.e., “third-party cookies”).
There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, which may be stored on your computer for different periods of time: “session cookies”, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser, and “persistent cookies”, which will remain on your device until their pre-set expiration period passes.
According to the law which may be applicable to you, your consent may not always be necessary for cookies to be used on a website. In particular, “technical cookies” – i.e. cookies which are only used to send messages through an electronic communications network, or which are needed to provide services you request – typically do not require this consent. This includes browsing or session cookies (used to allow users to login) and function cookies (used to remember choices made by a user when accessing the website, such as language or products selected for purchase).
On the other hand, “profiling cookies” – i.e., cookies used to create profiles on users and to send advertising messages in line with the preferences revealed by users while browsing websites – typically require specific consent from users, although this may vary according to the applicable law.

Browsing or session cookies, which are strictly necessary for the Website’s operation, and/or to allow you to use the Website’s content and Services.

Function cookies, which are used to activate specific Website functions and to configure the Website according to your choices (e.g., language), in order to improve your experience.
Profiling cookies, which are used to observe the preferences you reveal through your use of the Website and to send you advertising messages in line with those preferences.

Alloys Italia also uses third-party cookies – i.e. cookies from websites / web servers other than the Website, owned by third parties. These third parties will either act as independent data controllers from Alloys Italia regarding their own cookies (using the data they collect for their own purposes and under terms defined by them) or as data processors for Alloys Italia (processing personal data on Alloys Italia’s behalf). For further information on how these third parties may use your information, please refer to their privacy policies:

4. Grounds for processing and mandatory / discretionary nature of processing

Alloys Italia’s legal bases to process your Personal Data, according to the purposes identified in Section 3, are as follows:
Service Provision: processing for these purposes is necessary to provide the Services and, therefore, is necessary for the performance of a contract with you. It is not mandatory for you to give Alloys Italia your Personal Data for these purposes; however, if you do not, Alloys Italia will not be able to provide any Services to you.
Marketing: processing for these purposes is based on your consent. It is not mandatory for you to give consent to Alloys Italia for use of your Personal Data for these purposes, and you will suffer no consequence if you choose not to give it (aside from not being able to receive further marketing communications from Alloys Italia). Any consent given may also be withdrawn at a later stage (please see Section 8 for more information).
Compliance: processing for this purpose is necessary for Alloys Italia to comply with its legal obligations. When you provide any Personal Data to Alloys Italia, Alloys Italia must process it in accordance with the laws applicable to it, which may include retaining and reporting your Personal Data to official authorities for compliance with tax, customs or other legal obligations.
Misuse/Fraud: Information collected for this purpose is used exclusively to prevent and detect fraudulent activities or misuse of the Website (for potentially criminal purposes).

7. Retention of Personal Data

Personal Data processed for Service Provision will be kept by Alloys Italia for the period deemed strictly necessary to fulfil such purposes – in any case, as these Personal Data are processed for the provision of the Services, Alloys Italia may continue to store this Personal Data for a longer period, as may be necessary to protect Alloys Italia’s interests related to potential liability related to the provision of the Services.
