In addition to the Data Controller, in some cases, other parties involved in the AlfaForni.com organisation (managerial, commercial, marketing, legal, system administrators) or external subjects (such as third-party technical services suppliers, couriers, hosting providers, IT companies, communication agencies) might also have access to the Data if appointed as Data Processor by the Data Controller.

  • the User gave consent for one or more specific purposes. Note: in some jurisdictions, the Data Controller may be authorised to treat Personal Data without the User’s consent or another legal basis specified below, as long as the User doesn’t object (opt-out) to such processing. However, this is not applicable if the processing of Personal Data is regulated by European legislation concerning Data protection.
  • processing is necessary to execute a contract with the User and/or to execute pre-contractual measures.

  • processing is necessary to execute a task conducted for the public interest or to exercise the official authority assigned to the Controller.
  • processing is necessary to pursue the legitimate interest of the Data Controller or of third parties.

Anyway, it’s always possible to ask the Controller to clarify legal basis of each treatment and, in particular, to specify whether processing is based on the law, foreseen by a contract or necessary to conclude a contract.
