We inform the User that the personal data being processed is the following:

  1. Navigation data

This is information that is not collected to be associated with identified data subjects, but which 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 addresses in the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) notation of the requested resources, 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 operating system and the user’s IT environment. This data is used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the site, to check its correct functioning, to identify anomalies and/or abuses, and is deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in the event of hypothetical computer crimes against the owner or third parties.
  2. Social plug-in
    We collect personal data from third-party social networks (such as the “Like” feature on Facebook, the “Follow” feature on Instagram or the Youtube “Share” feature) through so-called social plug-ins. The purpose of the collection of such data by Sandro Vanini is to allow the user to share content form Sandro Vanini on their social media. The subsequent processing and use of data by the providers themselves on their pages, as well as the rights and setting options for the protection of the user’s privacy, is indicated in the information on the processing of personal data made available by the relevant providers.
  3. Data provided through Forms
    User data is collected by the Owner when filling in a form (hereinafter referred to as “form”). The form requires the entry of personal data, such as: name, surname, address, telephone, email, IBAN
  4. Data provided voluntarily by the User

4      Purpose of the processing

The User’s personal data will be processed for the following purposes:


  • To respond to a request for information from the User;
  • To process the User’s purchase request, with reference to the fulfilment of the online order and related accounting and tax activities;
  • To manage correspondence and service communications with the User;
  • To process and deliver the User’s orders;
  • To subscribe to specific services, such as the Sandro Vanini newsletter;

In this case, Sandro Vanini will interrupt the aforementioned activity without delay.


5      Legal basis for the processing of User data

The processing is justified by one of the following legal conditions:

  • The processing is necessary to execute the existing contract between the parties. In this case, the provision of personal data is optional but its absence makes it impossible to enact the contract and execute the requested service;
  • Processing is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation. In this case, the provision of data is mandatory and its absence makes it impossible to enact the contract and execute the requested service;
  • The processing is necessary for the pursuit of the legitimate interest of the Data Controller, provided that the interests or fundamental rights and freedoms of the User that require the protection of personal data do not prevail. In this case, the provision of data is optional.

The communication of personal data to Sandro Vanini where requested (through online forms for example) may be essential for the achievement of the purposes indicated by the communication itself. Failure or refusal to provide accurate information when requested will make it impossible to follow up on the user’s request, and therefore Sandro Vanini will not be able to process it.

The provision of additional data to Sandro Vanini, in addition to the mandatory data, is optional and will not have any consequences with respect to the main purposes of processing personal data indicated in this Privacy Policy.


6      To whom the data could be communicated

As part of Sandro Vanini’s business and for the purposes specified above, the User’s personal data may be shared with:

  • Duly appointed data processors who provide specific processing or ancillary services on behalf of the Data Controller and under their instructions (e.g. Web hosting, system administrators);
  • Autonomous Data controllers to whom the data could be communicated in accordance with the provisions of the law or orders of the Authorities, or for example to execute payments (Banks); to allow the Owner to exercise their rights (law firm); etc.
