Categories of personal data collected and processed
- Navigation Data
When the Site is visited or consulted, the Firm does not generally collect users’ personal data, except for the so-called navigation data. As a matter of fact, the technological platform through which the Site is made available to users automatically records some of their navigation data – which are implicitly transmitted while using web communications protocols – such as the name of the internet provider, the site of origin, which pages have been viewed, date e duration of the visit etc.. Such information may be used in anonymous and aggregate form for statistical purposes and to verify the proper functioning of the Site.
- Data provided voluntarily by the user
The personal data provided by users voluntarily when interacting with the “Recruitment” feature of the Site in order to send their CV are collected and processed by the Firm. In the latter case, pursuant to art. 111-bis of the Privacy Code, the user’s specific consent to the processing of the data provided in said section is not required for the purposes set forth in art. 6, para. 1, lett. b) of the GDPR.
Purposes of data processing
The Firm shall process users’ data for the following purposes:
- operational management of Site navigation;
- management of Site security;
- statistical analysis;
- search and selection of associates or personnel.
Legal basis for the processing of data
The processing carried out by the Firm for the above-mentioned purposes may be legally based on one of the following:
- as far as navigation data are concerned, processing is necessary to pursue a legitimate interest of the Firm. Specifically, the legitimate interest in the proper functioning of its Site and in the production of statists regarding user Site navigation;
- as far as the data voluntarily provided by users is concerned, processing is necessary for the performance of the pre-contractual measures adopted upon the data subject’s request.
The personal data will be processed on paper and through automated means, only with procedures that are strictly necessary to achieve the above described purposes. The processing is carried out through the operations set out in art. 4 n. 2) of the GDPR, with or without automated means, and more specifically: collection, recording, organisation, structuring, updating, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval and analysis, comparison, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction.
All personal data will be processed in accordance with current legislation on the protection of personal data, in particular the principles of lawfulness, fairness, transparency, minimisation, accuracy, integrity and confidentiality and by using appropriate organisational and technical measures ensuring the security of data and the protection of the processing from unauthorized and unlawful processing, loss, destruction and accidental damage.
Scope of data provision
Except for navigation data (which are automatically collected by the system), the provision of personal data by users with regard to the “Recruitment” feature of the Site is optional. The provision of personal data is necessary in order to use such feature of the Site. Failure to provide the data shall make it impossible to access said feature of the Site.
Storage of personal data
The personal data processed for the above-mentioned purposes will be stored both on hard-copy and digital files for as long as it is strictly necessary.
Recipients or categories of recipients of personal data
The personal data will be processed exclusively by individuals authorised to perform such processing, such as professionals and employees of the Firm, to the extent strictly necessary in order to pursue the above-mentioned purposes; generally, the data can be communicated for the purposes set forth above to all individuals/entities in relation to which said communication is necessary for the achievement of the above-mentioned purposes.

- request and obtain – where the processing is based on a contract and carried out by automated means – his/her personal data in a structured and machine-readable format, also in order to transmit those data to another data controller (so called “right to data portability”);
- object at any time to the processing of personal data on grounds relating to his/her specific situation;
- withdraw of his/her consent at any time, limited to the cases in which the processing is based on the data subject’s consent to one or more specific purposes and concerns “ordinary” data (e.g., date and place of birth or his/her residence), or specific categories of data (e.g., data revealing racial origin, political opinions, religious beliefs, data concerning health or a person’s sex life) – it being understood that such withdrawal shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.
