Security of personal data storage

We use a wide range of security measures, including encryption and authentication tools, in order to improve the protection and maintenance of security, integrity and accessibility of your personal data.

Although it is not possible to guarantee the security from intrusions for the transmission of data that takes place on the Internet and websites, we and our subcontractors and business partners work to ensure physical, electronic and procedural safeguards to protect your personal data in accordance with the requirements for data protection. We adopt, among others, measures such as:

  • the strict restriction of access to your personal data, based on need and for the sole purposes communicated;
  • the transfer of data collected only in encrypted form;
  • the storage of highly confidential information (such as credit card information) only in secure mode;
  • IT firewall systems to prohibit unauthorized access, for example by hackers;
  • permanent monitoring of access to IT systems to identify and stop the abuse of personal data.

If we have provided you (or you have chosen) a password that allows you access to certain sections of our website or other portals, applications or services provided by us, you will be responsible for maintaining the secrecy of this password and for respecting any other security procedure of which I give you news. We ask you not to share passwords with anyone.


Protection of Location Data

Some services can be offered only if you reveal your location. We take the confidentiality of location data very seriously.

Below are the security measures applied to the location data (including information accessible in the assistance process):

  • these data are stored, in the form associated with you, only for the time necessary to fulfill the permitted purposes;
  • these data are collected, stored or accessed in the form necessary to provide the requested service, or in accordance with the law;

However, we ask you to consider that we will not be able to provide you with certain features of our services, should you limit the collection of your Location Data.


Duration of data retention

We keep your personal data only for the time necessary to achieve the purposes for which they were collected or for any other legitimate purposes connected (for example, where they are relevant for a defense against claims made against us or in the presence of a legitimate interest). Therefore, if personal data are processed for two different purposes, we will keep such data until the purpose expires with the longer term; however, we will no longer treat personal data for that purpose whose retention period has ceased.

We limit access to your information to those who need to use it for relevant purposes.

Your personal data that are no longer necessary, or for which there is no longer a legal prerequisite for its conservation, are irreversibly anonymized (and thus can be stored) or permanently deleted. To this end, personal data will be stored for the time necessary to achieve the purposes for which they were collected. For greater clarity we report below the retention periods relating to the main purposes:

Marketing purposes: personal data processed for marketing purposes may be stored for 10 years from the date on which we obtained your last consent for this purpose (with the exception of opposition to receive further communications).

Fulfillment of contractual obligations: the data processed to fulfill any contractual obligation with you, may be kept for the entire duration of the contract as well as for subsequent 10 years from the end of the fiscal year following that of competence, to face any investigation and / or tax dispute.

In the event of disputes: in the event that it is necessary to defend ourselves or act or even make claims against you or third parties, we may keep the personal data that we consider to be reasonably necessary to process for these purposes, for as long as this claim can be pursued.

Treatment of images and videos: the data relating to the Image and the videos will be kept in the FCF databases for a period of 24 months, to be subsequently deleted by them.


Communication of your data abroad

Your personal data may be accessed by our staff, agents and suppliers also located in countries outside the European Economic Area (EEA), for one of the established purposes, whose laws regarding data protection could be of a lower standard than those of the AEE. In the latter case, we will ensure that all your personal data accessible outside the EEA is treated with appropriate safeguards.

Some countries outside the EEA, such as Canada and Switzerland, have been authorized by the European Commission as they provide similar protection to that of the EEA legislation on data protection, and therefore no additional legal protection is required. In the case of foreign countries that have not obtained such authorization, such as India or Japan, you will be asked for your consent to the transfer or your personal data will be transferred using the contractual clauses approved by the European Commission. These clauses impose similar data protection obligations directly on the recipient, unless we are allowed by the applicable data protection law to transfer the data without such formalities.

FCF uses a number of suppliers to assist in the provision of the services and treatments listed.

Although the transmission of data via the Internet or websites cannot be guaranteed as safe from intrusions, we and our subcontractors, as well as our commercial partners, strive to maintain physical, electronic and procedural security measures to protect your data personal, compliant with the requirements imposed by data protection legislation.

All your personal data is stored on our protected computer systems (or paper copies securely stored) or on those of our subcontractors or our business partners, and are accessible and usable according to our standards and our security policies (or equivalent standards for our subcontractors or business partners).

Where available, the personal data we collect may be disclosed to third parties, on your behalf and with your consent, only for the purpose of allowing these parties to render their services.

Where necessary to process a specific request, your personal data may be disclosed to the third party or business partner who may make the service requested.
