  1. Data Controller

Rizziconi, as identified at the beginning of this Policy, is the Data Controller with respect to all Personal Data that are processed through the Site. If necessary, you may contact the person in charge of data protection of Rizziconi at the following address:

  1. Personal data processed

Following your navigation of the Site, we inform you that Rizziconi will process your Personal Data, which may consist – also depending on your decisions on how to use the Services – of an identifier such as your name, or one or more characteristic elements of your physical or social identity capable of making you identified or identifiable (hereinafter only “Personal Data“).

Your Personal Data may be collected either because you voluntarily provide them (e.g. when you enter your data in order to be contacted by Rizziconi) or simply by analyzing your behavior on the Site.

  • Name, contact details and other Personal Data

In the section Contacts of the Site, relavant to the insertion of data, in order to be contact by the company for the programming of a visit to the Rizziconi Energia plant, you will be asked to fill in with information such as your name, telephone number, email, address, etc.

  • Data voluntarily provided by the data subject

As already mentioned above, in some parts of the Site (such as entering your data to request a contact) you are allowed to communicate information of various kinds to Rizziconi, which may contain Personal Data of other people.

In this case, you act as autonomous data controller, assuming all the obligations and responsibilities of the law. In this sense, you agree to indemnify Rizziconi in full against any dispute, claim, request for compensation for damage caused by processing, etc., that may be received by Rizziconi from third parties whose Personal Data has been processed through your use of the functions of the Website in violation of the applicable rules on the protection of personal data. In any case, if you provide or otherwise process Personal Data of third parties in the use of the Site, you warrant as of now – assuming all related liability – that this particular case of processing is based on the consent of such third party or on another appropriate legal basis that legitimizes the processing of such information.

  • Navigation Data

The cyber systems and software procedures used to operate the Site acquire, during their normal operation, some Personal Data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This information is not collected to be associated with identified interested parties, but by their very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified. This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of computers used by users who connect to the Site, URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) of requested resources, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in reply, the numerical code indicating the status of the response from the server (successful, error, etc..) and other parameters regarding the operating system and computer environment. These data are used only to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of the Site and to check its correct functioning, to identify anomalies and/or abuses, and are deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to assessment of responsibility in case of hypothetical cyber crimes against the site or third parties: except for this possibility, the data on web contacts do not persist for more than seven days.

  • Cookie

Definitions, characteristics and enforcement

Cookie are small text files that sites visited by the user send and record on his computer or mobile device, to be then transmitted to the same sites at the next visit. Thanks to cookie, a site remembers the user’s actions and preferences (such as, for example, login data, the language chosen, font size, other display settings, etc.) so that they do not have to be indicated again when the user returns to that site or navigates from one page to another of it. Cookie, therefore, are used to perform computer authentication, session monitoring and storage of information regarding the activities of users who access a site and may also contain a unique identification code that allows you to keep track of user navigation within the site for statistical or advertising purposes. While browsing a site, the user may also receive on his computer cookies from sites or web servers other than the one he is visiting (so-called “third party cookie”).

Some operations could not be carried out without the use of cookie, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary for the functioning of the site.

There are several types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, and these can remain on the user’s computer for different periods of time: so-called session cookie, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; so-called persistent cookie, which remain on the user’s equipment until a pre-established expiry date.

According to current law, the use of cookie does not always require the explicit consent of the user. In particular, “technical cookie” do not usually require such consent, i.e. those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. In other words, these cookie are indispensable for the functioning of the site or necessary to carry out the activities requested by the user.

Types of cookie used by the site and possibility of (de)selection

The Site uses the following cookie, which can be de-selected, except for third party cookies for which you should refer directly to the relevant cookie selection and de-selection methods, indicated by means of links:

  • Navigation or session technical cookie, which are strictly necessary for the operation of the Site or to allow you to take advantage of the content and services requested.
  • Analytical cookie, which allow us to understand how the Site is used. These cookies do not collect information about your identity or any Personal Data. The information is processed in aggregate and anonymous form.
  • Functionality cookie,e. used to enable specific features of the Site and a number of selected criteria (e.g. language) in order to improve the service provided.

Rizziconi uses third-party cookie, i.e. cookie from sites or web servers other than Rizziconi’s, used for purposes specific to these third parties. Please note that these third parties, listed below with the relevant links to their privacy policies, are typically independent data controllers of the data collected through the cookie they serve, or act as data processors for Rizziconi (i.e. they process Personal Data on behalf of Rizziconi).
