(hereinafter “Advice Group” or “Processor”), as data Processor, will be compliant with Lgs. D. 196/2003 “Code on the subject of privacy” (hereinafter referred to as “Code”).
The purpose of this information is to make users aware, before they enter the various sections of the Website/APP, with regard to how Advice Group processes the users’ personal data; it is thus necessary for any user to read it through before entering personal data upon registering on the Website.

After the information notes, the terms and conditions are listed whereby users can agree to transferring rights in respect of concepts, images, comments, catchphrases associated with the contents of the Website, materials and any other information designed by the users and posted by them on the Website/APP (“Contributions”), as well as consenting to the use of any image which the user might have transferred to Advice Group.

Finalità del trattamento
Depending on the needs expressed from time to time by any user accessing the various Website sections (and notwithstanding specific regulations and information regarding individual transactions which involve the transfer of specific personal data, posted on each occasion on the Website), below is a list of the treatment purposes as regards personal data, i.e. those which are transferred directly by the users who fill out forms on-line, or through the use of social networks (see also the section “Nature and methods of transferring users’ Personal Data” below), or those entered automatically (see the section “Categories of Personal Data subject to processing) (hereinafter, “Personal  data”):

  1. agree to registration on the Website/APP, which is necessary in order to enter specific Website/APP sections and to provide and manage the various services on offer;
  2. allow users to post their Contributions directly on the Website/APP, or on the webistes managed independently by third parties which which Advice Group may have entered agreements in this regard; this includes – for example, but not only – social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, etc. (hereinafter “Social Networks”); the said Contributions may also be posted using a “nickname” which can be selected by the user when registering on the Website/APP, as well as – possibly – the image associated by the user with his/her nickname. In this regard: i) each user shall be exclusively responsible for any choice which could jeopardise the interest of others; ii) users are not required to enter personal data which could allow for identification by third parties other than Advice Group; nevertheless the user, through Advice Group, might decide to circulate personal data if the latter are part of the nickname chosen, as well as the photo which has possibly been associated with a user’s profile.
  3. upon consent by the user and until the latter has been withdrawn, carry out marketing activities which include sending promotional and advertising material for Advice Group, also via e-mail, mms and text messages;
  4. In accordance with legal requirements and in order to customise the users’ experience on the Website/APP, as well as to improve the services and product offered by Advice Group to its customers, upon consent by the user and until the latter has been withdrawn, carry out surveys about consumers’ habits or choices or outline a profile of the persons concerned using the information provided by the latter when they register, fill out questionnaires, or based on actions completed or information provided while browsing the Website;
  5. answer users’ requests with regard to Advice Group products, advertising or to the Website/APP (section “Contact Us” on the Website/APP).

Registration of the users with the Website/APP is not required in orer to render some services offered by Advice Group (e.g. those referred to in paragraph e) above). Nevertheless, in order to process some user requests concerning such services, they will be invited to enter personal data which will be processed exclusively for the purposes and duration strictly necessary.

Processing purposes
The Personal Data will mainly be treated in an automated manner, using logics strictly related to the purposes mentioned above.

Nature and method of transferring users’ Personal Data
The transfer of personal data is optional, nevertheless there are some personal data whose transfer is mandatory (i.e. necessary in the case of data whose fields include an asterisk), to make sure that Advice Group is able to meet the user’s requesta as part of the Website/APP functionality. Failure to enter Personal Data, or entering incorrect information, in fields with an asterisk because they are necessary for the services in question,  makes it impossible to render them; on the other hand, failture to enter Personal Data or entering information in optional fields does not entail any consequence.
Personal Data may be transferred: a) by filling out the relevant fields in the various sections of the Website/APP; or b) they may be filled in automatically if the person concerned has joined a Social Network and has agreed to passing on to Advice Group some of the data which the person in question has already transferred to the said Social Network; in the latter case, Advice Group recommends that special attention should be paid to the following:
i) if you select a link for registration with a Social Network, from a Website/APP or on one of the Advice Group pages on that Social Network, a window will appear with a box which you can check to agree for Personal Data to be passed on from the Social Network to Advice Group, as well as three links, to be selected:
a) to review this information;
b) for a list of personal data which may be optional or mandatory, depending on the specific treatment purposes;
c) for the list of the data which the Social Network is about to send to Advice Group;
ii) the users, after having read the information, checked the box where they confirm that they are older than 18 and informed about the data whose transfer is mandatory, may select the link referred to under item c) above to deselect those data which they do not wish to transfer to Advice Group through notification via the Social Network.
Both in the case of Personal Data being transferred by filling in the relevant fields, and in the event of automated filling in via the Social Network, if the user has omitted to enter one or more of the mandatory data, an error message will appear from Barilla with a list of the missing mandatory Personal Data.

Categories of Personal Data subject to treatment
Apart from any Personal Data transferred directly by the users (e.g. name, surname, address, e-mail address, password, age, date of birth, sex, image, profession, marital status, etc.), while browsing a Website, the IT systems and software procedures in charge of operating the said Website automatically administer and/or acquire some information which could be persona data, whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols (the latter includes, by means of example but not only, what are known as “cookies” (which will be described in more detail below), “IP” addresses, domain names of the computers used by those who browse the Website, the “Url” coded addresses of the resources required, the time a request was placed with the server).

Use of Cookies
Cookies are text lines which serve as IT markers sent by a server (in this case, the one of this Website) to a users’ device (usually the Internet browser) when the latter enters a specific website page; these cookies are then automatically saved by the user’s browser, and passed on to the server which has generated them, every time the user accesses the same Internet page. In this way, for example, cookies permit and facilitate browsing of some Internet pages with a view to improving the user’s experience, or they may allow for the saving of specific pages which have been visited as well as other information, including for example the most frequently visited webpages, any connection errors, etc. Therefore, in order to allow for streamlined and comprehensive use of this Website, it is advisable for the user to select a browser configuration which enables receiving those cookies.
Many of the browsers are set to accept cookies automatically. However, it is possible for users to edit the default configuration in order to disable or delete cookies (every time, or once and for all); this, however, might jeopardise optimal use of some areas of the Website. It is also possible to verify the type and methods of the cookies saved on a browser by changing the cookie settings on the individual browser.
