Privacy Policy

4tek S.r.l. privacy and cookie policy undertakes to respect the privacy of all users and the confidentiality of personal data, traffic data and the content of communications.

With this information pursuant to art. 13 D. Lgs. 196/2003 (“codice privacy”) and to art. 13 of EU Regulation 2016/679 (“GDPR”) we intend to help users understand how the data provided by users in the use of internet communications and the website are used and protected.

Processing of personal data processes two types of personal data:

  • 1. The data that is stored on computer systems following their operation: logs and cookies
  • 2. The data that users transmit by compiling and sending messages from the site: e-mail address and message

These data are collected and stored for the time strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which they are collected and treated with diligence in compliance with the Personal Data Protection Code and other current regulations on the matter.

Legal basis

The legal basis is given by the fulfillment of laws, execution of contractual obligations or by the express consent of the interested party.

Processing methods and purposes

The processing of data will be carried out exclusively with computerized methods by implementing appropriate security measures to guarantee the accuracy, confidentiality, control over the dissemination and use of personal data. The data may be processed by the data controller or by appointed personnel for purposes related to the performance of the services as specified for each service offered.

Site navigation

While using the site, with each request that the browser sends to the server, the systems collect technical information to evaluate the correct functioning of the services, to provide useful information for correcting any malfunctions and to process traffic statistics in aggregate form.

This information includes the IP address of the device that made the request, the date and time of the request, the resource subject of the request, the result of the request, the referrer (if any) associated with the request and the user agent through which the request was made.

This type of data is kept for 30 days after which it is eliminated.

Data provided directly by the user

The personal data provided by the user in an optional, explicit and voluntary manner are used in order to respond to any requests made (as happens by calling the number indicated on the site or by writing directly to the email address published on the site).

Provision of data

Apart from that specified for navigation data, the provision of personal data contained in the request forms is free and optional. Failure to provide the data will make it impossible to forward requests from the site and/or to be able to process the requests forwarded.

Data residency

The data being processed may also be transferred to EU countries or to third countries, in accordance with the consent agreement also provided ex. art.43 c.1 lettera a) dlgs 196/03.
For the pursuit of the purposes described above, pursuant to articles 45 and 46 of the GDPR, your personal data may also be transferred outside the European Union only in the presence of an adequacy decision by the European Commission or other adequate guarantees provided for by the GDPR and applicable legislation (including binding corporate rules and standard protection clauses).

Communication and dissemination

The data collected will not be disclosed or communicated to third parties without the express consent of the interested party, without prejudice to any requests from the competent authorities, as established by law.

Cookies are small text files that the sites visited by the user send to his terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored before being re-transmitted to the same sites on the next visit by the same user. While browsing a site, the user can also receive cookies from different sites or web servers on his terminal (so-called “third-party” cookies); this happens because on the website visited there may be elements such as, for example, images, maps, sounds, specific links to web pages of other domains that reside on servers other than the one on which the requested page is located. In other words, they are those cookies that are set up by a website other than the one you are currently visiting.

Cookies are used to perform computer authentication, session monitoring and storage of specific information regarding users accessing the server.

Some operations could not be performed without the use of cookies, which in some cases are therefore technically necessary: for example, access to home banking and the activities that can be carried out on your online current account (viewing the account, bank transfers, payment of bills, etc.) would be much more complex to carry out and less secure without the presence of cookies that allow the user to be identified and maintain their identification within the session.

Cookies can also remain in the system for long periods and can also contain a unique identification code. This allows the sites that use them to keep track of the user’s navigation within the site itself, for statistical or advertising purposes, i.e. to create a personalized profile of the user starting from the pages that he has visited and therefore show him advertising targeted (so-called Behavioral Advertising).

By using the website, the user consents to the use of cookies.

The user can choose not to accept cookies at any time by changing the browser settings (if possible), by no longer using the site or by using the applicable opt-out options. Please note that certain functions are only available through the use of cookies and, by choosing not to accept cookies, it may no longer be possible to use these functions.
