3. Legal basis and obligatory or optional nature of processing
Your Personal Data will be processed by electronic or automated means. The purposes and the legal basis of the processing of your Personal Data that we intend to carry out are the following:
- to provide the services requested (e.g. a contact request, a “Demo” or a quote, a request for information or enrollment in training courses, a request for documentation or permission to download from the Site, reporting abuse), to answer specific requests addressed to Diennea andto allow you to browse and explore the Site (“Service Provision”);
- to allow you to subscribe to the Newsletter of Diennea and that of its brand “MagNews” (“Newsletter”). The legal basis of the processing of Personal Data for the purposes of Service Provision and Newsletter is Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR. This processing operations are required in order for us to provide the services, to respond to requests and/or to subscribe the newsletter(s). The provision of Personal Data for these purposes is optional, however, if you do not provide your data, we will not be able to provide you with the service, to respond to requests and/or to send the newsletter(s). You can always subscribe/unsubscribe the newsletter(s) by changing and/or updating your privacy preferences at “Edit profile” page accessible via the link at the foot of the newsletter or by writing to email@example.com.
- to carry out marketing activities, conduct studies, research, market analysis also by sending you a request for reviews, and send you advertising and information material related to the activities, the products and the services of Diennea and of its brand “MagNews”by way of “traditional methods”, such as postal mail, a telephone operator, or “automated methods” such as e-mail, SMS and through the use social networks (“Marketing”). Processing operations carried out for the Marketing purpose are generally based on the granting of your consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR and Article 130, paragraphs 1 and 2 of the Privacy Code (Legislative Decree no. 196/2003). By way of exception, Diennea may carry out Marketing activities on the alternative legal basis of legitimate interest (referred to in Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR and pursuant to Article 130, paragraphs 3 and 3-bis of the Privacy Code) towards those who (i) download documents from this Site and/or (ii) enroll in a course offered by Diennea may be contacted by phone. In such cases, Diennea assumes that there may be a genuine interest in it as well as in its products/services, therefore Diennea reserves the right to promote them by telephone as well. It is understood that operator calls will be carried out after verifying that the called person has not objected to such processing by registering in Do-not-call lists (in Italy, the Public Register of Oppositions), or directly addressing the Controller or by other means. It is not mandatory to give your consent to Diennea for this purpose and you can, at any time, withdraw your consent that you have previously granted to traditional or automated methods by giving notice to the Data Controller without any formality, simply by changing and/or updating your privacy preferences at “Edit profile” page accessible via the link at the foot of marketing emails or by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org, without prejudice to the lawfulness of the processing founded on your previous consent. Objection to telemarketing may also be exercised by registering in Do-not-call lists (in Italy, the Public Register of Oppositions). With regard to the request for reviews, we would like to specify that Diennea may ask you to publish them on third-party sites; in this case, these third parties will treat the personal data you provide as autonomous data controllers: we therefore invite you to consult the personal data processing policies of these third parties before publishing any type of review and personal data.
- to create user profiles by analyzing preferences, habits, interests (e.g., interest in Diennea and its products and services through verification of opening (or not opening) follow-up emails sent after events as well as opening (or not opening) our newsletter and verification of any clicks being made within those communications) and consumption choices expressed through the use of the Site and the services offered, and, where appropriate, by using profiling cookies (“Profiling“), in order to share material and commercial communications and personalized promotions with you (see section 3.c. above ). The processing carried out for Profiling purpose is based on your consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) of the GDPR, which may be collected through specific check-boxes or the cookie banner, or on legitimate interest of Diennea pursuant to Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR (e.g., in order to verify the opening (or not opening) of our follow-up emails and newsletter and any clicks being made within those communications). The provision of your Personal Data for this purpose is therefore entirely optional and does not affect your use of the services. You may oppose the processing of your Personal Data for Profiling purpose at any time by writing to email@example.com.
to fulfill the obligations provided for by law, regulations or EU legislation or request from competent Authorities (“Compliance”). The processing of your Personal Data for the purposes of Compliance represents a legitimate processing of personal data pursuant to Article 6 (1)(c) of the GDPR.
to analyse your CV, as well as to assess your profile with regards to the open positions in Diennea, to manage the selection procedures and to contact the candidates who submit their applications through the “Work with Us” section of the Site (“Recruiting”). Your CV may be retained and further processed by Diennea to improve its recruitment processes and organizational efficiency so that, in the future, it can recontact applicants who have not been interviewed as well as applicants who have been interviewed with a positive assessment but have not been ultimately hired and thus evaluate their CV in the future as well (“Optimizing the Selection Process“).
The legal basis of the processing of your Personal Data for the purpose of Recruiting is Article 6(1)(b) of the GDPR insofar as it is necessary to evaluate your CV and start the selection process, as well as Article 111-bis of the Privacy Code, according to which in cases of reception of spontaneously transmitted CVs by the data subjects, consent is not required. The provision of your Personal Data is optional, but any failure to provide it would make it impossible for Diennea to evaluate your profile or to schedule interviews. The processing of special categories of Personal Data (e.g., data concerning your health and political opinions) may be permitted as it is based on the release of your consent pursuant to Article 9(2)(a) of the GDPR, therefore subject to your explicit consent and according to the applicable rules on personal data protection. Diennea asks that you do not disclose any such types of Personal Data, unless you consider this to be strictly necessary. In any case, Diennea would stress the importance of providing your explicit consent to process this sort of Personal Data, if you decide, nonetheless, to share it. In the absence of your consent to the processing of special categories of Personal Data referred to you, your Personal Data will be processed within the limits allowed by the pro tempore authorization in force of the Italian Data Protection Authority. The processing of your Personal Data after the end of the recruitment process, and in any case no longer than 12 months after receipt of your application for the purpose of Optimizing the selection process, has its legal basis in the legitimate interest of the Controller (Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR) to consider your profile for further open job positions suitable with your CV. Providing your Personal Data for this purpose is optional, but if you fail to do so, the Data Controller may be unable to assess your CV, contact you for an interview, or evaluate your CV for future job positions.
to carry out statistical analysis without the possibility to identify the user (“Statistics”). Please note that the processing of your Personal Data for the purpose of Statistics is not performed on Personal Data and therefore it can be freely performed by Diennea.
to carry out direct marketing activities via e-mail for services similar to those you have subscribed to (e.g. a demo, documentation or materials available to download from the Site), unless you objected to such processing initially or in subsequent communications, by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org (“Soft spam”).The processing of your Personal Data for the Soft spam purpose represents a legitimate processing under the applicable law on personal data protection, which does not require your consent. You can object to the processing of your Personal Data for this purpose both when requesting the products and services available on the Site and on subsequent communications by the Data Controller by writing to email@example.com.
Share your Personal Data with Diennea’s partners active in the field of communication and marketing, such as web agencies, digital agencies and communication agencies so that they can send you information and promotional material for autonomous direct marketing purposes (“Communication to third parties“). Such processing will be carried out upon the provision of your specific consent pursuant to Article 6(1)(a) GDPR; the failure to provide such consent will not affect the access to the services of the Site. You may revoke your consent at any time by contacting the Controller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
