d. Cookies

Information on cookies used by the Website is available at the following link.

3. PURPOSE OF DATA PROCESSING – WHY WE PROCESS YOUR DATA

Your personal data will be processed where applicable, with your consent where necessary, for the following purposes:

3.1. to allow navigation of the Website and the provision of RF services through the Website;

3.2. to find specific requests, including telephone calls, addressed to RF;

The provision of personal data for these purposes is optional, but failure to provide them would make it impossible to activate the requested services. 

 

The legal basis for the purpose referred to in section 3.3 is art. 6(1)(c) of the GDPR ([…] processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation to which the data controller is subject). In fact, once the personal data have been transferred, the processing is indeed necessary to comply with the legal obligations to which RF is subject.

In fact, once the personal data have been transferred, it is indeed necessary for the pursuit of RF’s legitimate interest to the aforementioned conditions,

 

It is also specified that the processing referred to in section 3.6 is not performed on personal data and therefore can be freely carried out by RF.

 

Finally, in the event of any provision of Particular Data, if requested, the Processing has a legal basis in your consent pursuant to art. 9(2)(a) of the GDPR ([…] the data subject has given his/her explicit consent to the processing of such personal data for one or more specific purposes), subject to specific notice.

 5. RECIPIENTS OF PERSONAL DATA

Your personal data may be shared for the purposes set out in section 3 of this Privacy Policy with: 

5.1. subjects that typically act as data supervisors, namely: i) persons, companies or professional firms that provide assistance and advice to RF in accounting, administrative, legal, tax and financial matters or other types of advice; ii) subjects delegated to carry out technical or IT maintenance; iii) credit institutions, insurance companies; iv) companies and entities controlling, controlled and connected to RF, limited to the pursuit of administrative-accounting purposes connected with the performance of organisational, administrative, financial and accounting activities.
