Our privacy policy in brief

 

The principles on which our privacy policy is based are listed below:

 

    Ensure that data processing is conducted fairly and legally, protecting user privacy and implementing appropriate measures for security and protection of the privacy, integrity and availability of the data provided by users.

    Process data exclusively for the purposes and according to the methods illustrated in the notice presented to users at the time of its collection;

    Answer all requests for cancellation, variation and integration of personal data, opposition to data processing for the purpose of sending commercial information and advertising;

    Make data available to third party companies only for purposes that are strictly necessary to provide the requested service(s) and only where monitored by a data supervisor; not communicate, cede or transfer data to third parties for purposes exclusive to the third party unless the users have received prior warning and have granted their consent;

    Use data for other purposes, with respect to those specified at the time of collection, only where the user has expressed its express consent to such use;

 

Processing your personal data

 

Personal data processing is conducted primarily by means of information systems and electronic devices by Babbi and other parties who, selected with care for their reliability and competence, conduct operations that are essential in order to achieve the purposes strictly related to the use of the web site, its services and sale of products via the web site (see below, ‘Parties who may process your personal data’).

The specific purposes for which your personal data is processed are summarized each time you communicate your personal data, in the notice presented in compliance with art. 13 of Legislative Decree 196/2003. In general, data is processed in order to provide the following services available to those who visit our site:

 

    registration on the site, to enjoy the services we offer;

    subscription to Babbi Newsletter and sharing its content, inviting your friends to join the Babbi world, making yourself known to other users by sending us your comments and eventually your picture;

    handling of your requests: be they technical, commercial, concerning progress reports on your orders and generally speaking all information requests;

    contacting us.

 

For this reason we have set up the site in such a way as to reduce use of your personal data to the absolute minimum: therefore, your personal data is not processed when the purpose of the specific activity can be achieved by using anonymous data (such as market surveys intended to improve services) or by means of other methods that make it possible to identify the person involved only if strictly necessary or at the request of authorities or the police (such as site traffic data, the time you spend visiting our site or your IP address).

 

In some cases, as expressly cited in the notice, your personal data will be processed, if you expressly grant your consent, to create a user profile based on your preferences and your purchases, so that we can send you information that is pertinent to your needs and interests. With the exception of the case specified at art. 130, paragraph 4, of Legislative Decree 196/2003 (authorizing the data controller to use your data to send you advertising e-mails about products and services similar to those you have already purchased, unless you refuse your consent for such use), Babbi may use your personal data to send you advertising about its products and services only if you grant your consent.

 

Your personal data will be communicated to third parties only with your express consent, except for the cases when such communication is obligatory by law or is required for purposes envisaged by the law, for which the person’s consent is not required; in these cases the personal data may be made available to third parties who will process the data autonomously and exclusively for such purposes (for example, in reply to a request from police or the courts or other competent authorities).

Any other type of processing, other than related to the specific purpose for which you have communicated your personal data will be indicated in the information notice and will be carried out by Babbi only if you have expressly granted your consent.

There are, however, instances of data processing for which the law established that your consent is not required: for example, we wish to inform you that Babbi can process your personal data without your consent if this is necessary to comply with the provisions of the law or whenever this is necessary to fulfill the contractual obligations it may have entered into with you (for example, when you have bought products or have requested specific services through our web site).

Finally, we wish to inform you that your personal data will not be transferred abroad to countries that do not belong to the European Union that do not provide a sufficient level of privacy protection. If such a transfer should be necessary to provide you with the services or to conclude a contract with Babbi for purchasing our products, we wish to assure you that your personal data will not be transferred to countries that do not belong to the European Union and do not provide a sufficient level of privacy protection unless specific agreements are concluded by Babbi with such parties, in accordance with applicable laws and regulations.

It could happen that Babbi may find itself processing personal data of third parties, communicated directly to Babbi by its own users, such as when a user has bought a product to be delivered to a friend, or when the person who pays for a product is different from the addressee, or again, when a user wishes to inform a friend about a service or the sale of a specific product on babbi.it.

In these circumstances, Babbi will deliver the notice pursuant to art. 13 of Legislative Decree 196/2003 to the third party, when the personal data of the same is registered in its archives, it is however your own responsibility to obtain consent from this person before communicating his/her personal data to Babbi and to inform him/her about this Privacy Policy, because you will be the sole person responsible for communication of information and data about third parties without them having granted their consent or in the event that such data be used in an illicit or improper way.

We wish to inform you that the consent of these persons is not required when their data is communicated to Babbi in order to conclude a contract with Babbi in their favor.

Babbi reserves the right to eliminate accounts and all related data if illicit contents is discovered that is harmful to the image of Babbi and/or its products or those of third parties or, in any case, may be considered offensive, may be seen to promote illegal or libelous activities, includes pornographic material, incite to violence, or promote discrimination based on race, gender, religion or sexual preferences.

 

Parties who may process your personal data

 

Babbi has chosen to call on other companies for processing your personal data, for certain specific activities. The companies that conduct such operations have been carefully selected and are experienced, capable and trustworthy, and offer sufficient guarantees that they abide by the applicable laws and regulations that regulate data processing, including the security profile of such data.

These companies have therefore been appointed data supervisors, and they conduct their activities according to the instructions and under the control of Babbi. We verify on a regular basis that they have fulfilled the duties assigned to them and that they continue to offer sufficient guarantees of compliance with the provisions that govern the protection of personal data.

Your personal data is also processed by our employees assigned to specific services; the categories of employees involved in these activities depend on the purposes for which the data was communicated and are always specified in the notice displayed when you communicate your personal data.

Jurisdiction

 

This Privacy Policy is regulated by Italian law and, in particular, by the code governing protection of personal data (Legislative Decree no. 196 dated 30 June 2003), which regulates treatment of personal data – including data stored abroad – effected by anyone who resides or has a business office in Italy.

The code guarantees that the processing of personal data must be conducted in accordance with the fundamental rights and liberties as well as the dignity of the person, with particular reference to confidentiality, personal identity and the right to protection of personal data.

 

Babbi Companies

Babbi operates on the Internet, through babbi.it, in countries other than Italy – even outside of the European Union – by means of subsidiaries that belong to the Babbi.

Your personal data will not be communicated to these companies without your consent or the existence of equivalent requirements.

These companies also adopt – with reference to the provision of services to their users and sales of products through the www.babbi.it web site – their own privacy policies that are, in any case, in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

We do wish to remind you, however, that Italian law applies to all cases of personal data processing conducted by anyone who uses devices situated in Italian territory, even if not electronic devices (unless they are used exclusively for transit through the territory of the European Union), regardless of whether they may be located in another country, even if not a member of the European Union.

Whenever companies of the Babbi Group process your personal data, they nominate Babbi as their representative on the Italian territory, for the purposes of applying the Italian provisions that regulate processing of personal data.
