In the processing of data that can directly or indirectly identify your person, we try to respect a principle of strict necessity. For this reason, we have configured the Website in such a way that the use of your personal data is kept to the minimum and so as to exclude the processing of your data when the purposes pursued in individual cases can be achieved through the use of anonymous data (such as, for example, in market researches aimed at improving services) or by other means, which allow the identification of the user only in case of need or at the request of the authorities and police forces (such as example, for data relating to traffic and your permanence on the Website or your IP address).

The decisions regarding the purposes, the methods of processing your personal data and the tools used, including the security profile, are under the responsibility of BG, as data controller of the personal data of the users of the Website in accordance with EU Regulation 679 / 2016 (GDPR).

ABOUT YOUR PERSONAL DATA

BG is the data controller of users’ personal data of the Website; BG decides on the purposes and methods of data processing and on the tools to be used also with regards to any security aspect.

HOW AND WITH WHAT PURPOSE YOUR PERSONAL DATA ARE USED

Your personal data is collected and processed by BG for purposes strictly related to the use of the Website, its services and the purchase of products through the Website. Your personal data may also be used in other processing operations, however, with modalities compatible with such purposes.

In particular, your personal data may be processed for the following purposes:
A. as part of the registration process to the Website, we collect your personal data (such as the e-mail address) through the related registration form (My Account) to provide you with access services to reserved areas and services of the Website and for sending the Newsletter by e-mail, where expressly requested;
B. to provide support services (Customer Service), we collect your personal data (such as e-mail address) for purposes necessary to give you all the information about the services of the Website and the purchase of the products on the Website;
C. as part of the process of purchasing products on the Website we collect your personal data (such as personal data, e-mail address, postal address, telephone number) through the order form for the sale of products on the Website;
D. as part of the request for technical assistance services, we collect your personal data to provide you with information about browsing problems, browser compatibility and visualization or loading of the web pages of the Website;

Your personal data are mainly processed in electronic format and in some cases also in paper support, such as when the processing of your data is necessary to prevent fraud on the Website. Your personal data will be stored in the form that allows your identification for the time strictly necessary for the purpose for which the data were collected and subsequently processed and, in any case, within the limits of the law. 

Your personal data will not be disclosed to third parties for purposes not allowed by law or without your express consent. In addition to BG, acting as the data controller, your data are also made available to third parties, independent data controllers, for ancillary purposes and related to the provision of services requested by the user (for example, for transactions related to purchases). For details on this aspect, see what has been said in next paragraph “to whom we communicate your personal data”.

In addition, your data may be disclosed to police forces or judicial authorities, in accordance with the law and upon formal request by such parties, for example in the anti-fraud services of the Website. We inform you that BG processes the personal data of its users only for purposes strictly related to the provision of services on the Website, at the conclusion of contracts for the sale of products and, with your consent, to communicate new business initiatives closely related to the activities and to the services of the Website.
BG processes your personal data for direct marketing purposes, also by e-mail, only with your consent. The purposes for which your personal data are processed will in any case be made known specifically, from time to time, in the information text that BG submits to the user on the page where the provision of personal data is requested. It may happen that BG is processing personal data of third parties communicated directly by their users to BG, for example in the event that the user intends to report to a friend a service or a product on sale on the Website.

In all these cases, be sure to obtain the consent of the person to whom the data referred before communicating them to BG, and to inform you about this Privacy Policy because you will be the only one responsible for the communication of information and data relating to third parties, without these expressly requested, and for their incorrect use or contrary to the law.

The provision of your personal data to BG and, in particular, personal data, your e-mail address, your postal address and telephone number is necessary with regard to the conclusion of the contract for the purchase of products on the Website. The possible refusal to indicate, to BG, some of your data necessary for such purposes could imply the impossibility to make the purchase of the products on the Website or to provide the other services available on the Website - as for example, to provide support services (Customer Service) for sending the Newsletter to show an article to a friend or, again, to correctly fulfill the obligations of law and regulation.

 

TO WHOM WE COMMUNICATE YOUR PERSONAL DATA
