3. Compulsory or optional provision of personal data.

The communication, on your part – also by sending e-mails, filling out special forms and affixing the required flags -of Personal Data to us is optional, however it is necessary since any refusal to release them, as well as any communication of incorrect data, makes it impossible for the Controller to establish the relationship or to implement the various purposes for which the Personal Data are collected.

For the same reasons, as well as for the purpose of correct management of the existing relationship, we kindly ask you to inform us immediately about any changes to the Personal Data we have already collected.

4. Communication of personal data

The Personal Data are processed internally by persons who are authorized to process them (the “Authorized Individuals”). Such operations are under the responsibility of the Data Controller, for the purposes indicated above.

Your personal data may be communicated to individuals or entities external to us, who are tasked with fulfilling instrumental and/or accessory functions to our business activity. Such individuals or enti-ties will process said data on our behalf.

These individuals or entities, in accordance with the provisions of art. 28 of the GDPR, will be ap-pointed by us as External Managers of the Processing (the “External Managers”).
