  1. INTRODUCTION

Personal data protection is an opportunity for shared transparent compliance between Betacom s.r.l. (from now on also the “Employer”) and the employee supplying the personal data.

Betacom s.r.l. undertakes to protect, preserve from damage, save and dispose of the data according to data treatment lines linked to the relationship established with the User.

By “personal data” (also known as IPI – Identifiable Personal Information) is meant anagraphic data, in case of registration when requesting services, and identification data for website navigation in applying control systems, security and data analytics.

By data “treatment” is meant any single or multiple operations performed with or without automated processes and applied to personal data or clusters of personal data, including collating, registration, organisation, structuring, conservation, adaptation or alteration, extraction, consultation, use, communication by transfer, dissemination or otherwise making available, comparison or interconnection, limitation, cancellation or suppression.

  • The User has given consent to data treatment for one or more purposes.
  • Data treatment is necessary for the provision of services, i.e. for performing a contract agreed with the user.
  • Data treatment is necessary to meet a legal requirement to which the Owner is subjected.

Betacom s.r.l. website collects user data as follows:

  • Data obtained by automated means, i.e. provided directly by the User when navigating in the website and therefore leaves behind digital traces (IP, browser, name of network provider) which are stored by servers mainly for reasons of security, control and data analysis.
  • Data provided on a voluntary and optional basis, i.e. given directly by the User with the intention of registering to the website to access services.

Betacom s.r.l. guarantees that the data acquired are also pertinent and not excessive, ensuring that the process is lawful and correct, i.e. for the purpose of data treatment, explicit ad legitimate.

Data treatment always occurs with hardcopy and digital tools and supports, both according to criteria based on security procedures, conservation and accessibility, within the strict domain of the purposes specified.

The legal basis of data treatment is the permission given by the Consentee to the treatment of personal data for one or more specific purposes as specified in this document. Moreover, the Owner may exercise a legitimate interest to defend his/her own legal rights in case of claims or disputes vis-a-vis the Consentee.

Betacom s.r.l. addresses a target of subjects with full legal, fiscal and contractual powers, which therefore excludes minors.

  1. INTERNATIONAL TRANSFER OF DATA

As of today, Betacom s.r.l. does not operate any international data transfer to Third Countries outside the European Union.

Owing to continuous changes and business expansion beyond European boundaries, it may happen that also company processes, followed by User personal data, are transferred to third party suppliers in other non-EU countries.

Consequently, in future User data might be shared and/ or transferred to third party suppliers in such countries.

If international transfer occurs, the process would take place according to the legitimacy requirements specified by the articles of the Regulation in force, by the applicable standards on privacy and by the procedures governing the transfer, and the Owner meets the conditions as per CAPO V (Transfer of personal data to third countries or international organisations – articles 44,45,46,47,48,49,50), in addition to the other directives of this Regulation.

Personal data may also be accessed by some external entities including service providers, qualified as responsible for data treatment.

The Owner guarantees training of all in-house personnel under his/her supervision who have access to personal data according to current data treatment specifications.
