The provision of your personal data is mandatory to pursue the above purposes and failure, partial or inaccurate provision of said data may result in the inability to render the services offered by Tecnica Srl and its partners. Users may independently provide their personal data using the forms to access certain services. Providing the data marked with an asterisk (*) in the data collection form is required in order to give the requested information; therefore, not giving said data will result in the inability for Tecnica Srl to render said services. Data not marked with an asterisk (*) is not required. The data is processed solely for purposes associated to the service under discussion, unless notified otherwise during the registration or data entry phase for each service. The data provided when filling out the contact form can be processed for marketing purposes with prior consent: by way of example, to send deals and commercial notices on the services or products offered by Tecnica Srl and partners or to inform about corporate events, as well as market studies and statistical analysis by sending text messages, direct messages via social networks, emails or certified emails with automated contact methods or through traditional forms, such as by phone with a professional operator duly trained or by traditional post.

By filling out said forms, the user will be registered in a database of the website, project or reference service to later receive relevant information. Said data can be forwarded electronically to the division in charge of the website, project or service thereby undertaking to use it solely for the purposes of fulfilling the requests. In subsequent phases, the user may authorise or deny the third party company to use its personal data for other purposes, such as to activate specific services. Tecnica Srl may enable the preservation and maintenance of copies of information provided in its data bases for these forms, to guarantee the quality and usability on its part and on the part of companies whose data are addressed by the user.

As far as data processing by the third party company to the user that addressed it through a form, its request for any notification must be made directly to the third party company.

  2. Data subjects have the right to obtain information about the origin of the data; the purpose of the data processing; the logic of the data processing; identification details of the Data Controller and Data Processors; subjects to whom the data may be disclosed.
  3. Moreover, Data subjects have the right to obtain: the updating, rectification or supplementation of the gathered data; the erasure, transformation into anonymous form or blocking of data that is processed unlawfully, including data whose retention is unnecessary for the purposes for which it was collected or subsequently processed; the right to certify that the actions as per the above sections have been notified to the entities to whom or which the data was disclosed, unless this requirement proves impossible to fulfil or involves a disproportionate use of resources in relation to the right to be protected.

Moreover, if the processing is based on a consent or contract and is carried out with automated instruments, Data Subjects have the right to obtain the personal data from the Data Controller in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format and if technically possible, have the right to transmit those data to another controller without hindrance. Data Subjects have the right to lodge a complaint with the competent Supervisory Authority in the member state where they normally reside or work or in the country in which the alleged breach took place.
