2. Personal data being processed

As a result of browsing the Site, we inform you that Unieuro will process personal data, which may consist of an identifier such as an identification number, an online identifier (“Personal Data”). Your Personal Data may be collected because you voluntarily provide it (for example, when you send communications to the contact details/addresses made available through the Site). The Personal Data processed through the Site are as follows:

a. Navigation Data

The computer 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 its very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified. This category of data includes the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the Site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) notation addresses of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters relating to the user’s operating system and computer environment. These data are used for the sole purpose of obtaining 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 ascertain responsibility in case of hypothetical computer crimes against the Site or third parties: except for this possibility, at present the data on web contacts do not persist for more than 7 days.

b. Data voluntarily provided by the data subject

Unless we refer to specific disclosures, this policy is also intended to cover the processing of data you voluntarily provide, for example, by sending communications to the contact details/addresses on the Site.

c. Cookie

Definitions, characteristics, and enforcement

Cookies are small text files that sites visited by the user send and record on the user’s computer or mobile device, only to be transmitted back to the same sites on the next visit. It is precisely because of cookies that a site remembers the user’s actions and preferences (such as login details, language choice, font size, other display settings, etc.) so that they do not have to be indicated again when the user returns to said site or navigates from one page to another of it. Cookies, for example, are used to perform computer authentication, session tracking, and storage of information regarding the activities of users accessing a site, and may also contain a unique identifier code that allows tracking of the user’s navigation within the site itself, including for statistical or advertising purposes. Browsing a site, users may also receive cookies on their computer from sites or web servers different from the one they are visiting (so-called “third-party” cookies). Some operations could not be accomplished without the use of cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary for the very operation of the Site. There are various 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 cookies, which are automatically deleted when the browser is closed; so-called persistent cookies, which remain on the user’s equipment until a predetermined expiration date. The use of cookies does not always require the user’s express consent. In particular, “technical cookies,” i.e., those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user, do not require consent. These are cookies that are indispensable for the operation of the Site or necessary to perform activities requested by the user.

Types of cookies used by the Site

The Site uses only technical and assimilated cookies. No tracking or profiling cookies or other types of active (e.g., Beacon and Pixel) or passive (e.g., fingerprinting) identifiers are used. The use of these cookies does not require the consent of the user, who may however limit their activity in the manner set out in the section “How to view and modify cookies through the Browser”.

The Site uses the following types of cookies:

  • technical navigation or session cookies and strictly necessary for the operation of the Site or to enable you to take advantage of the content and services requested;
  • functionality cookies, i.e. used to enable specific features of the Site and a set of selected criteria (e.g. language) in order to improve the service rendered;
  • third-party technical/functional cookies, i.e. cookies from sites or web servers other than Unieuro’s used for purposes specific to said third parties. It should be noted that these third parties are typically autonomous Data Controllers of the data collected through the cookies they serve; therefore, you will have to refer to their personal data processing policies.

4. Legal basis and mandatory or optional nature of processing

The legal bases used by Unieuro to process your Personal Data, according to the purposes indicated in the previous Section 3, are the following:

– Service provision: processing of your Personal Data for this purpose (Sect. 3(a) above) is necessary in order to provide you with services and to be able to respond to your requests. The legal basis for such processing is Article 6(1)(b) of the Regulation (“[…] the processing is necessary for the performance of a contract to which the data subject is party or the performance of pre-contractual measures taken at the request of the data subject”). The provision of Personal Data for this purpose is optional, but without it, it will not be possible to provide the requested services or respond to your requests;

– Compliance: processing of your Personal Data for this purpose (Sect. 3.b.) above) is necessary for Unieuro to fulfil any legal obligations or comply with requests from authorities. This processing is based on Art. 6(1)(c) of the Regulation (“[…] the processing is necessary to comply with a legal obligation to which the data controller is subject”). The processing of your Personal Data for this purpose is, in fact, necessary to comply with legal obligations to which Unieuro is subject. Such processing may involve the storage and communication of your Personal Data to Authorities for accounting, tax or other obligations, as well as the dissemination of your Personal Data in case of participation in Shareholders’ Meetings on Unieuro’s institutional channels, including the Site;

– Statistics: si precisa che tale trattamento non è eseguito su Dati Personali e che pertanto può essere liberamente effettuato da Unieuro.

a. subjects that typically act as data processors i.e.: i) persons, companies or professional firms that provide assistance and advice to Unieuro in accounting, administrative, legal, tax, financial matters relating to the provision of services; ii) subjects with whom it is necessary to interact for the provision of services (e.g. hosting providers) iii) or subjects delegated to carry out technical maintenance activities (including maintenance of network equipment and electronic communication networks);

6. Transfers of Personal Data

The Data Controller will not transfer your Personal Data outside the European Economic Area in the absence of adequate safeguards. Any transfers to third countries will, in fact, be subject to adequate safeguards such as, but not limited to, the presence of adequacy decisions or the signing of standard data protection clauses adopted or approved by the European Commission. More information is available from the Data Controller.


7. Retention of Personal Data

The Personal Data processed for the purposes of Service provision (Sez. 3.a.) will be retained for the time strictly necessary to achieve those same purposes and, in the second case, until the time provided for by the specific obligation or applicable law. In any case, since the processing is carried out for the provision of services, Unieuro will process Personal Data for as long as permitted by Italian law to protect its interests (Art. 2946 et seq. of the Civil Code).

The Personal Data processed for the purposes of Compliance (Sez. 3.b.) will be retained as long as required by the specific obligation or rule of law or regulation applicable.
