FOR THOSE WHO USE WEB SERVICES REQUIRING PERSONAL DATA

(Information about the use of the personal data provided pursuant to and by the effects of art. 13, L.D. 196/03)

 

Spontaneous e-mail transmission

 

When you spontaneously send an e-mail to one of the e-mail addresses indicated on our website, we acquire the sender’s address and any other personal data you include in the message and attachments. The e-mail addresses indicated on our website, and any other e-mail address of the CALIN S. A Group, are not personal in nature even when they bear the name and/or surname of a physical person. They belong to the business organization and their primary purpose is to permit the effective management of the business activities of the CALIN S. A Group companies. This means that any messages sent to the e-mail address of the CALIN S. A Group may be read by other people in the organization in addition to the addressee. When you send e-mail to the e-mail addresses indicated on our website you declare that you have read and accepted the conditions of use detailed in this policy.

Compiling forms on the website

 

When you access the website of the CALIN S. A Group and decide to use its interactive services (such as requesting newsletters, registering on website and communities, making purchases, participating in events, campaigns, etc.), you may be asked to fill out a form on the website with some of your personal data. In accordance with the provisions of art. 13 L.D. 196/03, the code on the subject of the protection of personal data, we hereby provide you with some information that will help you understand how we use the data you send us.

Mode and purpose of data processing

 

To access the services and content provided by our website, you may be asked personal data such as your first and last name, address, e-mail, credit card number, etc. We will never ask you for sensitive data on our web forms (such as your racial or ethnic origin, religious, philosophical or political believes, the state of your health, your sex life, etc.) or any judicial data (data on your police record, or relative to your position as a suspect or accused person). The data are processed by means of IT and telematic tools and hardcopy supports, in respect of the provisions of law tending to guarantee security and confidentiality, as well as accuracy, updating and relevance of the data with respect to the declared purposes. As a matter of fact, you yourself can help us ensure that your data are always accurate by communicating any changes to info@calingroup.gr

The data you give us will be processed by personnel expressly designated by the Data Controller as assigned personnel and/or data processors, depending on the respective profiles of authorization assigned. The personnel appointed and their supervisors may perform operations of consultation, use, processing, comparison and any other operation, including automatic processes, only if they have been expressly authorized to do so. We use the personal data you give us only for purposes strictly connected with the individual service requested and used. Whenever we intend to use your personal data for other or different purposes from the provision of the service requested, before proceeding with processing we will request your consent.

Hereafter we list the services available through our website for which we ask you to provide your personal data. For each service we indicate the purpose of processing.

Registration for the newsletter: the newsletter is a communication with promotional and advertising content, sent to all the interested parties who request it. On our website registration for the newsletter implies sending promotional communications that are not generalized, but are targeted on the basis of the language, sex and country of origin of the interested party. This means that we process the data we receive so as to divide the registrations into groups distinguished by language, sex and country of origin so that the newsletter sent is as close as possible to the person who requests it and could be interested.

Participation in exhibitions, events, contests and theme initiatives scheduled from time to time as special and temporary events: we will use the data to enable you to participate in the specific initiatives which you may attend from time to time.

Applying for a job: when you send your resume spontaneously, or answer an open ad, we will use your data for the necessary activities of selection and recruitment. When you fill out the web form for a job application we will provide you with specific information.

We use the data collected through the above services for the further purpose of performing statistical analyses and market surveys. This use is always made in aggregate, anonymous form, however. This means that we never relate your personal data with the data processed for statistical purposes.

We may also use your personal data for other purposes, as described below.

Remember: every time we plan to use your personal data for one of the purposes described hereafter, we will inform you specifically and request your express and unconditioned consent. In addition, you can withdraw your consent at any time and change the choice made by writing to info@calingroup.gr

 

Transmission of targeted communications and generalized trade offers: we could ask your consent to use your data to send you targeted communications (such as best wishes for your birthday) or generalized advertising messages and promotions via traditional mail, e-mail, fax, text, etc. Your consent to receive these communications will be valid for communications sent using automated systems without an operator (such as e-mail or text messages) as well as for traditional means of contact (such as mail through the postal service). You may always revoke consent to the use of your data for this purposes, even separately, choosing, for example, to receive advertising only via regular mail and refusing any sent via automated systems. We inform you that the law on the protection of personal data (art. 130, section 4, L.D. 196/2003) permits so-called “soft spam”. This means that without having to obtain your express consent we can use the e-mail address you gave us on the occasion of a previous purchase, for direct sale of similar products to those you have already purchased, on condition that you do not object to such use. Aside from the case of “soft spam”, if we intend to use your personal data to send you business communications, we will specifically ask you to give your consent.

Analysis of consumer habits: in some cases, we may use the data you send us to take advantage of particular services (such as requesting the newsletter or making purchases) for what is called “profiling”, which is an analysis of the social breakdown of consumers by age, sex, country of origin, profession, consumer habits, etc. Profiling involves processing the data you give us to create groups of consumers divided by market segment on the basis of a targeted set of elements (such as sex, country of origin) in order to reach more evolved profiles based on preferences, online conduct and previous purchases. This activity serves two purposes: it enables us to develop products and services with characteristics in line with the preferences of our consumers and it enables us to send advertising messages as nearly as possible geared to your tastes and interests.

Communication of your data to third parties: in a few cases we ask you to give your consent to send your data to other companies in the CALIN S. A Group which will send you their promotional offers and advertising. With your consent you can receive trade offers referring to products with all the trademarks of the CALIN S. A Group.

Consent to use

In all cases in which your consent is required in order to process your data, we will specifically request it for the individual purpose, expressed freely and without conditioning. We inform you, however, that for some specific purposes the law on the protection of personal data permits CALIN S. A to process your data without your consent (art. 24, L.D. 196/03). This occurs, for example, when it is necessary to process your data in order to comply with the law, when it is necessary for the performance of contractual obligations accepted toward you (purchase of products, requests of services provided through the website of the CALIN S. A Group) or to comply, before stipulation of the contract, with your specific requests.

Communication and disclosure 

CALIN S. A communicates your personal data to third parties exclusively when this is necessary and functional to the attainment of the purposes of use of the data pursued in function of the service requested by you, and in any case proceeds to communication only after informing you and, where necessary, obtaining your consent to do so. In general, the data collected through the individual services and for the purposes indicated herein are normally communicated to the following categories of organizations:

  1. organizations to which the right to access them is granted by law or regulations (such as public security or police forces);
  2. Companies in the CALIN S. A Group such as parent companies, subsidiaries and affiliates;
  3. Data processing companies and providers of information services (e.g. web hosting, data entry, management and maintenance of information infrastructures and information services, e-mail marketing, Acquirer, etc.);
  4. companies and offices performing consultant services;
  5. Other companies, to send their business communications only with the specific consent of the interested party.

 

In particular, certain specific services provided through our website may require communication to other categories of organizations such as Job applications: consultant firms for the recruitment and selection of personnel, with the purpose of supporting the Data Controller in evaluating the profiles and applicants.

 

CALIN S. A does not ordinarily disclose your data. Certain services provided by our website (such as “share my wish list”), however, permit the disclosure of your personal data to other users and web network services; this is, however, left to your free choice and is only possible after your specific and voluntary initiative. In some specific cases, however, we may ask you to send us your personal data (including photographs and audio-visual material) to enable you to participate in events, competitions and theme initiatives having an extraordinary and temporary character which, by their specific nature, require communication and disclosure of data. In these cases we will inform you and ask you to give your specific consent.

 

Rights of interested parties

The data subject has the right at all times to exercise the provisions of art. 7 of Legislative Decree no. 196/03. In particular, data subjects may request confirmation of the existence of their data (content and origin), verify their accuracy or request addition, updating, correction or deletion.
