Legal basis and purpose of processing personal data

Made Of Italy processes personal data for three main purposes:

1.    Service

The primary purpose of collecting personal data is to provide the website Made Of Italy and Services, to issue accurate charges for the use of the Services and to manage the customer relationship. The processing of personal data in this case is based on the agreement between the Customer and Made Of Italy. This concerns, for example, the data collected during the signing up for the Service, during the use of the Service and the technical data needed to run the Service in a secure manner and communications with Users.

2.    Marketing and other communications

Made Of Italy may occasionally send its Customers (and End-Users when the relevant personal data has been collected by Made Of Italy itself) email to inform about new features, solicit feedback, or provide information on what is going on with Made Of Italy and its products. We base this on our legitimate interest to provide Users with relevant information as part of the Services and to promote our Services.

3.    Service development and research

We always work to make our Services better. Therefore, we may use the User's data to improve the Services. We base this processing on our legitimate interest to grow and develop. Made Of Italy may also collect technical data for statistical purposes to compile anonymous, aggregated statistics, such as about the most popular Partners. Made Of Italy may display information publicly to others in an aggregate format that does not reveal statistics of any single Partner. Made Of Italy does not disclose personal data other than as described below.

Disclosures of Personal Data

We may disclose personal data to third parties in the following cases:

Made Of Italy may use subcontractors when providing its Services. Our trusted subcontractors work on our behalf, and do not have an independent right to use the personal data we disclose to them. Made Of Italy discloses personal data to its subcontractors on a need to know basis when necessary to process such data on Made Of Italy’s behalf in order to provide Services. Subcontractors are subject to appropriate security and confidentiality requirements.
When required by law such as to comply with requests by competent authorities or in response to a subpoena, court order or other governmental request;
When we believe in good faith that disclosure is necessary to protect our rights, investigate fraud or to protect our Users’ safety or rights.
If Made Of Italy, or substantially all of its assets, are acquired, or in the unlikely event that Made Of Italy goes out of business or enters bankruptcy, User information would be one of the assets that is transferred or acquired by a third party. You acknowledge that such transfers may occur, and that any acquirer of Made Of Italy may continue to use your personal data as set forth in this Privacy Policy.

Transfer of personal data outside of Australia

When necessary and to the extent required for the successful provision of the Services, personal data may be transferred to third parties outside of Australia. Made Of Italy or its subcontractors shall not transfer personal data outside of Australia without adequate safeguards required by applicable data protection law, such as standard contractual clauses.

Cookies and similar technologies

Cookies are pieces of data which are received and transmitted by a User's device when the User is using Made Of Italy's Services or website. Made Of Italy may use cookies and similar techniques to provide functionality of the Services, to enhance the user experience and to identify Users and how they use the Services. We use cookies, for example, to login and logout authentication, to remember session allowing Users to continue the session in case of time-out and to prevent unauthorized use of the Services.

We also use other forms of technology, such as web beacons and pixel tags, which serve a similar purpose to cookies and which allow us to monitor and improve our Services and the website.

We have divided cookies into two groups: (1) necessary cookies and (2) optional cookies. Necessary cookies cannot be disabled as the website cannot function properly without these cookies. Necessary cookies help make a website usable by enabling basic functions like page navigation and access to secure areas of the website.

Other type of cookies, such as statistical and marketing cookies, are not strictly necessary to provide the Services and the website, therefore, they are called “optional cookies”. For optional cookies, we will inform our Users on the use of optional cookies on a cookie banner and ask for a User’s consent. Users can also change their cookie settings at any time by clicking “Edit cookie consent” link in the footer of our website. This allows Users to accept or reject optional cookies. Users can also manage the use of cookies from their browser settings. Users can delete all cookies that are already on their device by clearing the browsing history of the browser and/or block all or some of cookies that are set on Users’ device in the future through browser settings.

Each cookie lasts for a different period of time. Made Of Italy uses both session cookies and persistent cookies. Session cookies will last only while User’s browser is open. When the User closes the browser, session cookies will be deleted automatically. Persistent cookies will survive even after closing the browser. Persistent cookies will for example recognize the Users’ devices when they browse the Internet by opening the browser again. Persistent cookies are placed on the hard drive of their device and stored until they expire, or until the User deletes the cookies. Users are informed of these cookie expiration times through our cookie banner and can also later find these by clicking “Edit cookie consent” link in the footer of our website.

Made Of Italy uses variety of cookies for different purposes. The cookies can be set by us (so called “first-party cookies”) or by a third party (so called “third-party cookies”). We may use third-party cookies for statistical purposes to compile anonymous, aggregated statistics, such as to estimate number of Users and detect which parts of the Service Users find most useful, and identify features that could be improved. For such purposes, we use third-party cookies, such as Google Analytics, to help analyze how our Users use the Service. The technical usage information (including IP address) generated by the cookie about use of the Service is transmitted to such third parties to compile statistical reports.

Made Of Italy may also use third-party cookies for marketing purposes to collect information about Users' browsing habits and to remember visits in order to make advertising more relevant to that User and to their interests. These cookies are usually placed by third party advertising networks and social media providers, such as Doubleclick, Google Adwords and Twitter. A list of used third parties is available here.

The User can at any time edit or withdraw their consent to optionalunnecessary cookies from the cookie declaration on Made Of Italy’s website.

Retention of personal data

The User's personal data will be retained only for as long as necessary to fulfill the purposes defined in this Privacy Policy. When the User's personal data is no longer required by law or rights or obligations by us or the User, we will delete the personal data. In most cases, personal data will be deleted upon termination or expiry of the agreement between the Subscriber/Partner and Made Of Italy or upon the Customer’s written request. Please note that Made Of Italy may have a right to retain some data even after the termination of the agreement for billing purposes.
