This document was drafted to inform users, in accordance with articles 13 and 14 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, of personal data processing performed through this website. Personal data processing occurs pursuant to current legislation on personal data processing and to the principles of accuracy, lawfulness, transparency and data protection. We hereby specify that this policy strictly refers to the data of those interacting with the services accessible from the homepage of the website  http://www.vialattea.com (hereinafter also referred to, for the sake of brevity, ‘the Website’) and not other websites eventually accessed by the user through links present on http://www.vialattea.com.

The Data Processor is SESTRIERES SpA, with headquarters at 4 Piazza Agnelli, 10058 Sestriere, Turin.
Sestrieres S.p.A. has named Spazio srl as the Data Protection Officer (DPO) and Massimiliano Bonsignori as the representative of the latter.

This policy is a general obligation that must be fulfilled before or, at the latest, at the time of direct collection of personal data. In case personal data are not collected directly from the data subject, the policy shall be provided within a reasonable time or at the moment of the communication (not the recording) of data (to third parties or to the data subject). Pursuant to the General Data Protection Regulation for identifiable persons (GDPR – Reg. (UE) 2016/679), the undersigned organization – the Data Processor – hereby provides the following information:



Personal data owned by the undersigned organization are collected directly from the data subjects. This website does not collect special categories of personal data revealing racial or ethnic origin, religious, philosophical or other beliefs, trade union membership, health condition or sex life.



The IT systems and the software procedures designed for website operation acquire, throughout their regular operation, personal data whose transmission is implicit to the use of Internet communication protocols. These data are not collected to be associated to specific data subjects, but by their nature may – through processing and association to data owned by third parties – allow an identification of the users. This data category includes IP addresses, domain names of the computers used by the users to browse the website, URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested, the time of requests, the method used to present requests to the server, the sizes of files received in response, the numeric code identifying the status of the server reply (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters related to the operating system and the user’s IT environment. These data are used for the sole purpose of retrieving anonymous statistical information related to the use of the website and to check its suitable operation. The data are deleted immediately after they are processed. The data may be used to verify liability in case of eventual cybercrimes committed against the website.



Profiling data related to the habits or consumption choices of the data subject are not directly acquired. Nevertheless, it is possible that – through links or third-party elements – such data may be acquired by third parties or discerned. See the Third-party Cookies section for more information.



Like other websites, this website saves cookies through the browsers used by the data subjects to transfer personal information and boost user experience. In fact, cookies are small strings of text that the websites browsed by users send to their terminal (usually the browser), where they are stored, at times even for long periods of time, to be re-sent to the same websites upon future visits.

As explained hereinafter, users may choose what cookies to accept and whether or not to accept them, considering that rejecting them may affect the ability to perform certain operations on the websites, the accuracy and suitability of certain customizable content offered or the ability to recognize the user upon a second visit. In case no related choice is made, the preset settings shall be applied and all cookies – all essential cookies – shall be activated. In any case, the user may communicate or change any related decision at any time.

The Website (http://www.vialattea.it) uses cookies to make its services simple and efficient for the users viewing Website pages. Users browsing the Website will see a minimum quantity of information on their devices – whether they are computers or mobile devices – in small text files called ‘cookies’, which are saved in the directory used by the users’ browsers.

When users enter the Website and their browser is set up to accept cookies, they may express their preferences concerning the various types of cookies through the popup banner appearing on the Website pages. Such preferences shall be recorded by a specific cookie consent management platform developed in compliance with the principles of applicable personal data regulations to allow the user to make definitive choices. The cookie consent platform allows the user to accept or reject different types of cookies, both directly released by the Data Controller and by its eventual partners and suppliers. This means that expressing a preference for individual cookies or third parties is not required. The different cookie types are identified and classified based on the purposes for which the cookies are issued and used, thus making their identification simpler and more straightforward.

In particular, when users access the Website they may choose, through the popup banner, to:

  • accept the installation of all the aforementioned categories of cookies by clicking on the ‘Accept’ button;
  • reject the installation of all the aforementioned categories of cookies by clicking on the ‘Reject All’ button;
  • access the ‘Learn more and customise’ link to choose what categories of cookies to accept or reject based on purposes or third-party owners;
  • close the banner through the specific ‘X’ button in the top-right corner.



In the event that users have previously selected cookie preferences and thus do not view the related banner upon entering the Website, they may, at any time, access the platform for cookie consent management and adjust the related preferences. On this matter, it is important that the users know that the choices made for the Website shall be valid for the entire second-level domain the latter belongs to.



Nearly all browsers offer the possibility to manage and disable cookies to respond to user preferences. Some browsers allow the users to set up cookie management rules for individual websites, thus granting more specific privacy control. Some browsers also offer incognito mode browsing, which entails that all cookies created in such mode are deleted upon quitting the browser.

Consult the following instructions for cookie management of each browser:



The discretional, explicit and voluntary sending of e-mails to the addresses specified on the website implies the acquisition of the sender’s e-mail address – necessary to answer user requests – and of other personal data eventually communicated in the e-mails. Voluntary and explicit sending of forms present on the Website and containing data of the data subject also implies processing to comply with pre-contractual obligations or for the performance of services implicit to the sending of forms. The data included in the forms may be personal data, contact information, telephone numbers and e-mails of the data subjects and/or identified/identifiable third parties assigned by the user. Specific summary notices shall be, in any case, shown or provided on the website pages allocated to specific on-demand services.



Personal data are used (see: Article 6, paragraph 1, item (b) of the GDPR): to allow Website navigation and eventually to perform the services or actions requested in the context of the regular activity performed by the undersigned organization (ATECO – Italian institute of statistics classification – code: 493901).

Moreover, all personal data may be processed:

  • for the purposes related to the legal obligations and the rules imparted by the authorities legally recognized for such purposes (see: Article 6, paragraph 1, item (c) and Article 9, paragraph 2, items (b), (g) and (h) of the GDPR);
  • for the verification, exercise or defence of a right of the undersigned organization in a judicial or extrajudicial context (legitimate interest) (see: Article 6, paragraph 1, item (f) and Article 9, paragraph 2, item (f) of the GDPR).



Supply of the data subject’s data is optional but essential to process the same for the purposes specified in items (a) and (b). Should the data subjects not communicate their essential data and not approve processing, the undersigned organization will not be able to offer or implement its services or fulfil its contractual obligations. Consequently, the correct fulfilment of the legal obligations – e.g. accounting, tax and administrative obligations – shall be compromised.

Other than the information provided for navigation data, users are free to provide personal data for cookies and specific requests through forms related, for instance, to goods and/or services. Failure to provide such forms may prevent supply of the requested goods/services. Provision of non-essential data, including special categories of personal data, is optional. Denial or provision of incomplete or erroneous consent of certain data, including special categories of personal data, may compromise or lead to fines or loss of benefits, both for the impossibility to guarantee the coherence of the data processing with the obligations for which it is performed and for the lack of conformity of the results of data processing with the legal obligations it is based on. The undersigned organization is thus exempt from any liability for eventual fines or related disciplinary action.



Processing related to the Website services occurs through automated tools strictly for the time required to achieve the purposes for which the data were collected. It occurs through servers in Italy or the EU and is managed strictly by technical staff in charge of data processing or by eventual persons in charge of maintenance and administration. Specific safety measures have been implemented to prevent data loss, illegal or incorrect use, unauthorized access and loss of confidentiality. The facility is equipped with intrusion prevention, firewalls, logs and disaster recovery systems. Specific data encryption and segregation systems as well as user authentication and authorization systems are implemented.

Data processing involves data collection, recording, management, storage, development, modification, cancellation and disposal or the combination of two or more such operations. In terms of the aforementioned purposes, personal data processing may occur through manual, IT or telecom systems with methods strictly related to the purposes. In any case, in order to guarantee the safety and privacy of the personal data, they shall be processed pursuant to the methods specified in Article 5 of Regulation (EU) 2016/679, which entails, among other conditions, that the data are processed lawfully and correctly and that they are collected and stored for specific, explicit and legitimate purposes and that – if necessary – they are updated and relevant, complete and not further processed in a manner that is incompatible with the initial purposes of processing. Data processing shall comply with fundamental rights and freedom along with the dignity of the data subjects, especially in relation to privacy and personal identity, through protective and safety measures. The undersigned organization has set up and shall additionally improve its safety, access and data storage systems.

No automated decision-making systems (e.g. profiling) are used.



Data processing shall occur mainly in Italy and the EU but may also occur in extra-EU and extra-EEA countries should it be deemed instrumental in the efficient fulfilment of the purposes pursued in compliance with the guarantees offered to the data subjects. Finally, the Data Processor is not liable for processing occurring in extra-EU and extra-EEA countries whenever – upon request of the data subject – connection to the Website occurs in such countries.



Generally speaking, personal data shall be stored as long as the purposes for processing instrumental to the category of data processed are applicable.



The data (essential data only) is shared:

  • With Data Processors and persons in charge of processing, both internal and external to the undersigned organization, which perform specific roles and operations (website administration, navigation/traffic/profiling data analysis, handling of e-mails and forms sent voluntarily by users, processing of e-commerce orders and requests, etc.);
  • in cases and with subjects as specified by law.

The data shall not be disseminated unless otherwise specified by law or in the anonymous form. Notwithstanding the aforementioned indications for cookies and third-party elements, the only performable services without prior consent by the data subject to communication to third parties shall be those that do not imply such consent. In case of need, specific consent shall be requested, and the subjects that will receive the related data shall use them in the capacity as independent data controllers.

In certain cases (not pertaining to ordinary management of this Website), an Authority may request news and information for the purposes of supervision of personal data processing. In these cases, a response by the data subject is compulsory: failure to respond shall lead to an administrative sanction.



The data subjects have the right, at any time, to: exercise their rights (access, correction, deletion, limitation, portability, opposition, elimination of automated decision-making systems), where applicable, in relation to the Data Processor, pursuant to articles 15-22 of the GDPR (regulation); lodge a complaint to the Garante per la Protezione dei Dati Personali (Italian Data Protection Authority, www.garanteprivacy.it); should processing be based on consent, withdraw such consent, considering that the withdrawal of consent does not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before the withdrawal.
