The provision of personal data for the above processing purposes is optional but necessary, since failure to provide the same will make it impossible for the User to browse the website and take advantage of the services offered by the Data Controller through the website.

 With reference to the purposes under points 1/a, 1/b, 1/c, 1/d, 1/e,1/f, 1/g, the lawful basis for data processing is the execution of the services provided by PromoFirenze and requested by you (pursuant to Article 6, paragraph 1, letter b of the Regulation).

 With reference to the purposes under point 1 / d / f / g, PromoFirenze may process personal data defined as “particular” by the Regulation, since the such data reveal the data subject’s racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical beliefs, or trade union membership, as well as data relating to the data subject’s health, sexual life or sexual orientation. Personal data are processed exclusively for the purpose of providing the requested services, in compliance with art.9 paragraph 2 letter b of the Regulation.

When Users give their consent (freely and optionally), some of their personal data (i.e. name, surname, email address, complete shipping address, etc.) may be processed by the Data Controller for newsletter purposes (dispatch of communications containing regulatory updates of general interest, or events organized and promoted by the Data Controller).

Users can easily oppose the dispatch of further email newsletters, for example, by clicking on the appropriate link – provided with each email – for withdrawing consent. Once consent is revoked, the Data Controller will send the User an email to confirm withdrawal of consent.  The Data Controller hereby makes known that, following the exercise of the right to oppose the dispatch of email newsletters, the User may continue to receive several newsletters for technical and operational reasons (e.g. compilation of contact lists completed shortly before the Data Controller receives the opposition request). If the User continues to receive promotional messages and newsletters 24 hours after exercising the right of opposition, we recommend reporting the problem to the Data Controller through the contacts indicated in paragraph 6 below.
