If we need to use your personal data for an unrelated purpose, we will notify you and we will explain the legal basis which allows us to do so.

  1. DISCLOSURE OF YOUR INFORMATION

We do not currently share your personal data with any third-parties.

We may, however, be required to share your personal data with third-parties if required by law or regulation. In such circumstances, we will make sure that the disclosure is only to the extent required by law or regulation.

Personal data is accessed by our duly authorized and trained personnel. 

Other subjects who have access to personal data have been appointed as Data Processors. A list of the subjects to whom the Data Controller discloses the personal data collected can be requested at the contact points shown at Par. 1 above.

To administer this Site, SRO uses also Ak Informatica S.n.c., with registered office in via Cremasca n. 1, Azzano San Paolo (BG) - Italy, VAT number 03172330163, Email: esport@akinformatica.it as data processor. 

  1. WHERE ARE THE DATA?

The data processed by SRO reside on servers located within the territory of the European Union. 

We limit the occasions when we may need to send your data outside of the EEA. Where we do, for example, where our service providers or partners are based outside of the EEA, we will take all steps reasonably necessary to ensure that your data is still treated fairly and lawfully in all respects (including making sure we have a legal ground for sending your data outside the EEA and putting in place all necessary safeguards for such arrangement).

In these cases, personal data may also reside on servers located in third countries, but always in compliance with the provisions of articles 45 and following of the GDPR. All the necessary precautions will therefore be taken in order to guarantee the most complete protection of personal data, basing this transfer: a) on adequacy decisions of the recipient third countries expressed by the European Commission; b) on adequate guarantees expressed by the third party recipient pursuant to art. 46 of the Regulation; c) on the adoption of binding corporate rules, so-called Corporate binding rules. These requirements are always guaranteed by SRO’s service providers. 

Where relevant, you will have the right to see a copy of any safeguards we put in place for international transfers of your data. Just get in touch with us if you would like to find out more.

However, we will retain your personal data only for as long as is strictly necessary for the purposes for which such data was originally collected (as referred to above), and thereafter for such longer period as may be required by law.

  1. HOW WE KEEP YOUR DATA SECURE

We have put in place suitable physical, technical and administrative controls to protect your information. Where we have given you (or where you have chosen) a password that enables you to access certain parts of Our Sites, you are responsible for keeping this password confidential. We ask you not to share a password with anyone. Despite the security measures we implement, please be aware that the transmission of data via the internet is not 100% secure. On such basis, we cannot guarantee the security of the information transmitted to us via the internet and any such transmission is at your own risk.

COOKIES

  1. WHAT’S A COOKIE?

Cookies are information stored by the browser when you visit a Web Site using a PC, smartphone, or tablet. Each cookie contains several pieces of data (e.g. the name of the server from which it originates, a numeric identifier, etc.). Cookies can remain in the system for the duration of a session (until the closing of the browser), or for long periods, and may contain a unique identifier.

  1. WHAT ARE THEY USE FOR?

Cookies are used for different purposes, depending on their type: some are strictly necessary for the correct function of the Web Site (technical cookies), whereas others optimize performance in order to provide the User with a better experience while they are visiting the Web Site. In addition, cookies allow Web Site usage statistics to be obtained, such as cookies analytics; others are for the purpose of displaying advertisements (in some cases advertisements are targeted based on cookie profiling).

The retain period changes referring to different type of cookies and their purposes. 

  1. WHICH KIND OF COOKIES DO YOU USE?
  1. Strictly necessary and functionality cookies (which DO NOT require your consent):

These cookies are necessary for the functioning of the Site and allow you to access its functions (so-called navigation cookies) or to authenticate yourself in the session.

The use of functional cookies is also envisaged, which allow you to store your preferences and settings, thus improving your browsing experience within the site.

To ensure their functionality, these cookies are not usually deleted when the browser is closed; however, they have a predefined duration (generally up to a maximum of 2 years) and after this period they are automatically deactivated. These cookies and the data they collect will in no way be used for other purposes.

The installation of technical cookies takes place automatically following access to the site or to activate certain features (eg by selecting the "remember me" option). At any time you can always decide to disable them by changing the settings of your browser: in this case, however, you may encounter some problems in viewing the site.

  1. Analytical/performance cookies (which may require your CONSENT):

These cookies keep track of the choices made on the site and data relating to navigation, in order to perform statistical analysis, in an anonymous and aggregate form. These tools can be used only after expressing the user's consent. An exception to this rule is only the case in which the following circumstances occur:

- the IP address has been duly anonymized;

- the information obtained with analytical cookies refer to a single IT resource (site, app, etc.) and are used only in anonymous and aggregate form;

- the cookie provider does not combine the information with other processing and does not pass it on to third parties.

  1. Profiling cookies (which require your CONSENT):

This site also uses profiling and third-party cookies, whose installation is subject to your prior consent.

Profiling cookies can include different categories, including advertising profiling, retargeting or Social cookies.

• Advertising profiling cookies: create a user profile that allows you to view advertising content in line with the preferences shown while browsing the site;

• Retargeting cookies: they are created in order to send you advertising content relating to the products in which you have expressed interest;

• Social cookies: this site provides for the installation of cookies relating to social network plug-ins. These cookies are managed directly by third parties and allow the display of advertising messages in line with your preferences.

When you access the site, through a special banner you will be informed of the presence of profiling and retargeting cookies and, through it, you can consent or not to their installation. Of course, at any time you can revoke the consent previously given, without prejudice to the possibility of visiting the site and using its contents.

  1. HOW TO DISABLE COOKIES?

You may refuse to accept cookies by declining to provide your consent when prompted upon accessing the Sites or activating the setting on your browser which allows you to refuse the setting of cookies. However, if you decline to provide your consent or select this setting you may be unable to access certain parts of our Sites. Unless you have declined to provide your consent or adjusted your browser setting so that it will refuse cookies, our system will issue cookies when you access Our Sites. If you wish to delete cookies you can do so through your browser, and further information on how to do this can be found here: www.aboutcookies.org/.

Control via browser: The browsers commonly used (e.g. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Safari) accept cookies by default, but this setting can be changed by the User at any time. This applies to both PCs and mobile devices like tablets and smartphones, and it is a function generally and widely supported.

Therefore, cookies can easily be disabled or turned off by accessing the browser’s options or preferences, and in general third-party cookies can also be blocked. As a general rule, these options will only have an impact on that browser and on that device, unless there are active options to synchronize the preferences on different devices. Specific instructions can be found on the Options page or Help page of the browser itself. Disabling technical cookies, however, may affect the full and/ or proper functioning of different sites, including this one.

Normally, browsers used today:

  • offer the “Do not track” option, which is supported by some websites (but not all). Thus, these websites are no longer able to collect certain navigation data;
  • offer the option of anonymous surfing or incognito mode: in this way, data will not be collected in the browser and browsing history will not be saved, but the navigation data may still be acquired by the operator of the Web Site that was visited;
  • allow the deletion of cookies stored in whole or in part, but after visiting a Web Site again they are usually installed, where such possibility is not blocked.

Below are links to the support pages for the most popular browser (with instructions on how to disable cookies on these browsers):

  • Firefox: (https://support.mozilla.org/it/kb/Attivare%20e%20disattivare%20i%20cookie);
  • Internet Explorer e Microsoft Edge: (https://support.microsoft.com/it-it/help/17442/windows-internet-explorer-delete-manage-cookies );
  • Safari: (iOS) on Mac (https://support.apple.com/it-it/guide/safari/sfri11471/mac) and portable (https://support.apple.com/it-it/HT201265#:~:text=Per%20cancellare%20i%20cookie%20senza,o%20disattiva%20la%20navigazione%20privata);
  • Chrome: (https://support.google.com/chrome/answer/95647?hl=it). 

Third-party cookies: When you access the site, through a special banner you will be informed of the presence of profiling and retargeting cookies and, through it, you can consent or not to their installation. At any time, you can revoke the consent previously given, without prejudice to the possibility of visiting the site and using its contents. The installation of profiling, retargeting, analytical and social cookies, including any other activity connected to them, is managed through third-party services. For more information and to enable or disable these cookies, you can access the information provided directly by third-party or using the methods described above (following the links listed in the previous paragraph).

On-line tools: You may note that from http://www.youronlinechoices.com/  you can not only learn more about cookies, but also check the installation of numerous cookies on your browser and/or device and, if supported, also disable them.
