This policy, which updates and supplements the previous versions, was prepared and customized specifically for this website in accordance with the provisions of Article 13 of the European Regulation 2016/679 (GDPR), as well as the Provision of May 8, 2014 issued by the Italian Data Protection Authority as amended and refined by the "Cookies and Other Tracking Tools Guidelines" of June 10, 2021.

Important notice
All third parties are hereby informed that the use of this notice or parts thereof on other websites with respect to which it would certainly be irrelevant and/or erroneous and/or inconsistent may result in the imposition of significant penalties by the Italian Data Protection Authority. 

Subject of the notice
In these web pages, our company uses tracking technologies based on so-called Cookies to acquire certain information about users, including certain personal data. Consequently, this notice is intended to clearly and precisely explain the purposes and methods of their use to the user. 
This document entirely supersedes and replaces any previous guidance provided by the company on the subject of cookies, which should therefore be considered entirely obsolete.

Definition of Cookie
Cookies are text strings (small files) that websites visited ("first parties") or different sites or web servers ("third parties") place and store on the device used by the user (PC, tablet, smartphone, etc.), to be then sent back to those same sites that created them during the user’s next visit. 

Cookies used by this website and their purposes
This website uses the following types of cookies:
1. Technical cookies: these ensure an optimal, fast navigation of the website and an efficient use of the services and/or the various options it offers, for example making a purchase or authenticating access to restricted areas. These cookies are necessary to improve the usability of the website, and their use does not require the user's consent.
2. Analytics/statistical cookies: these are anonymous aggregate web analysis tools that allow us to gather information about how users navigate the website, how they got there, the number and duration of visits, and so on. Such cookies enable the introduction of improvements to the website, which facilitate user access, and to process statistics. These cookies are comparable to technical cookies and their use does not require the user's consent.
3. Profiling/marketing cookies: these are tools to create a detailed "profile" of the individual user, thus having the purpose of sending targeted advertising. More specifically, each time the user enters the website information is collected including a study of their behavior within the individual pages visited, about their habits, preferences, favorite products, and so on. This allows our company to "catalog" the user and show/send them personalized advertisements. These cookies can only be used with the explicit consent of the user, who can express their choice via the banner and/or the link that can be reached using the footer of the website and possibly also listed at the bottom of this policy.

Cookies installed by this website through "third parties"
So-called "third-party" cookies are cookies that may be installed on the user's device by third-party site operators through and on behalf of this website for the various purposes listed above. 
When necessary, third-party cookies used for "profiling" on this website are listed in detail in the link reachable from the banner and footer of the website, as well as possibly listed at the bottom of this policy, through which the user may optionally express their consent to the use of all or some profiling cookies.

Browser settings
We also inform you that you are free to configure your privacy settings with respect to the installation and use of all cookies directly through your browser by following the relevant instructions. 
In fact, the user can use so-called "private browsing," whereby their browser stops saving the history of websites visited, any passwords entered, cookies and other information about the pages visited. 
Note that if you decide to disable all cookies (including technical cookies), the quality and speed of the services offered by this website may deteriorate significantly and you may lose access to some sections of the website.

Legal basis for the processing
For technical and analytics cookies, processing is necessary to optimize the user's navigation of the website and enable them to easily take advantage of the services requested.
For profiling cookies, the legal basis is the optional consent given by the user, which can be withdrawn in full and/or changed at any time.

Withdrawal or modification of consent
Users may withdraw and/or modify their choices at any time by accessing the link that can be reached from the footer of the website, as well as possibly listed at the bottom of this policy.

Recipients or categories of recipients of the personal data
The data may be disclosed to third parties only to fulfill legal obligations, as well as to fulfill the user's choices and/or any requests. The data will not be disseminated under any circumstances.

Persons authorized to process the data
The data will be processed only by specifically authorized and designated persons.

Rights of the data subject
The user enjoys all the rights enshrined in the European Regulation, such as the right to request access to and rectification of their personal data, their erasure, restriction of their processing, the right to object to their processing, as well as the right to data portability. They also have the right to lodge a complaint or file a report with the Supervisory Authority —in this case the Italian Data Protection Authority (Garante per la protezione dei dati personali)— or file a legal claim

Transfers to third countries
Any transfers of personal data to a third country outside the European Union or to an international organization will take place based on an adequacy decision by the European Commission, or in the case of transfers under Articles 46, 47 or 49, second paragraph, of the European Regulation, based on appropriate and adequate safeguards.

Period of data retention
The data will be retained for the period strictly necessary to meet the requests of the data subject or as required by current regulations. 
Specifically, profiling cookies will be retained for a maximum of six months after collection, after which they will be deleted or anonymized, unless their retention for a longer time is necessary to comply with legal regulations or to follow up on inspections, investigations, litigation or similar purposes.

Data Controller
The Data Controller is Docfinance S.r.l., with headquarters located in Reggio Emilia (RE), Via Danubio 9. 

Data Protection Officer
The data protection officer is Mr. Juri Torreggiani, with office located in Via Piccard 16/G, Reggio Emilia (Italy), phone +39 0522 301169, fax +39 0522 387996. Any request for clarification or information may be addressed to this person.
