3. Purposes for processing data

The processing of the Personal Data will be carried out for the purpose of allowing correct use of the Elica Social Network pages which, for promotional and marketing purposes, promote Elica products.

4. Processing methods and scope of dissemination

The processing will be carried out with the instruments of the Social Networks for which the interested party has given consent. Elica will consider consent to processing by the interested party as validly granted in the event that, from the context or operating mode of the Social Network itself, it can be unequivocally determined that the interested party has in this way decided to also manifest the willingness to provide his or her consent to receiving promotional messages from Elica.

In particular, Elica will understand it to be valid consent to receiving marketing communications if:

  • within Facebook, the interested party has decided to follow the official Elica page and/or has clicked “like”;
  • within Twitter, the interested party has decided to follow the official Elica page and/or has clicked “follow”;
  • within Instagram, the interested party has decided to follow the official Elica account and/or has clicked “follow”;
  • within LinkedIn, the interested party has decided to follow the official Elica page and/or has clicked “follow”;
  • within Pinterest, the interested party has decided to follow the official Elica page and/or has clicked “follow”;
  • within YouTube, the interested party has decided to follow the official Elica channel and/or has clicked “subscribe”;

Should the interested party, within a Social Network, stop following Elica or in any case, oppose to any further promotional communications, Elica will consider this as revocation of the relative consent.

In any case, Elica reminds you that numerous Social Networks offer their users the possibility of blocking the sending of messages by a determined subject.

The processing will also be carried out with electronic and digital instruments with logic strictly correlated to the purposes indicated above and the data itself will be stored on digital means, adopting the measures of an organisational, physical and logical nature to guarantee the security of the Personal Data.

The Personal Data collected will not be distributed.

5. Nature of the conferral

Conferment of consent to the processing for the purposes pursuant to point 3) is optional. Nevertheless, any refusal will determine the impossibility of giving you proper use of the social page and, therefore allowing you to receive commercial communications through said instruments.

6. Communication and transfer

Our employees and collaborators who, as data processors and/or data supervisors, are authorised to process data for the purposes indicated in this statement, may become aware of the Personal Data.

The Personal Data may be processed in particular by workers in the following offices: Communication, Information Technology, Marketing and Web & Social who will have access as those in charge of the processing.

The Personal Data may also be processed in particular by the digital agencies that assist us in managing social media which will have access and data processors.

The Personal Data may not be distributed to undetermined subjects, except with your explicit consent.

  1. for legitimate reasons, to the processing of personal data concerning him/her, even if pertinent to the purpose of the collection;
  2. to the processing of personal data concerning him/her for the purpose of sending advertising or direct sales material or for carrying out market research or commercial communications.

Elica also declares how the right of the interested party to oppose the processing of his or her personal data for marketing purposes, conducted through automated contact methods, is extended to traditional means and in any case without prejudice to the possibility of the interested part to exercise said right in part, pursuant to Art. 7, paragraph 4, letter b), of the Privacy Code, namely, in this case, opposing, for example, only to sending promotional communications carried out using automated instruments or only to the sending of promotional communications carried out using traditional instruments.
