2. TYPES OF DATA PROCESSED

The following Data is processed:

Browsing data: such as the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users connecting to the Website and the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) notation addresses of the resources requested, the transmission of which is implicit in the use of internet communication protocols. This information is not collected for association with identified data subjects, but its nature may, through processing and association with data held by third parties, enable the users to be identified. This data is used purely to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of the website and to control that it is functioning correctly; it is deleted immediately after processing. Data may be used to assess liability in the event of hypothetical computer crime to the detriment of the website: to this end, web contact data may be kept in compliance with and limited to this purpose. Starting with the IP address and the domain name of the computers used, limited to the purpose of assessing liability, it may be possible to trace other data identifying the user (in particular, name, surname, e-mail address, etc.);

Data supplied voluntarily by the user: such as identifying data, like name, surname, place and date of birth, e-mail address, telephone number, tax code, address of residence or domicile, etc.; any other data supplied, e.g. when registering with the Website in the specific section and filling in any data collection forms as may be available form the Website, or when buying Mutti brand products or subscribing to specific services, such as the Newsletter Service. For the “Work with us” section of the website, Mutti asks users to refer to the specific disclosures on the processing of such data;

– Data collected by means of cookies: for information on the cookies present on the Mutti Website and other tracking tools, please refer to the Cookie Policy. Interactions with the websites visited by Data Subjects through the use of Facebook Business Tools means that browsing data is also processed by Facebook, which acts as autonomous controller, just like Mutti.

3. MINORS

The Data Controller’s website and services are not intended to be used by individuals under the age of 16. The Data Controller does not intentionally collect personal data relating to minors. In the event that personal data relating to minors is involuntarily collected, the Data Controller will promptly erase this at the request of a user. The protection of the security and confidentiality of minors is very important for us. When registering with the Website, in the specific section, and when filling in any data collection forms present on such Website or when requesting the supply/subscribing to the Newsletter service, the data subject confirms and declares that they are aged over 16 years old or in any case that they are no younger than the age indicated by legislation of the country of residence, where other age limits apply.

4. PURPOSES OF DATA PROCESSING

The personal data supplied by Data Subjects through the Website is collected and processed by the Controller for the following purposes and legal bases:

A. without prior consent for service purposes and, in particular, for:

1. the execution of the contract and/or precontractual commitments, in particular:

– participation in events/contests regulated by specific regulations or general conditions of contract that will be submitted to you for acceptance;

2. fulfilment by the Controller of legal obligations, such as:

– compliance with obligations set forth by national and European Community laws, regulations or legislation or set by the competent authorities;

3. the pursuit of a legitimate interest of the Controller:

– Website management and maintenance: the interest of the Controller is the general interest of an enterprise in guaranteeing business operations, including through the Website function and possible ways by which to increase the efficiency of the service offered;

– to prevent or discover fraudulent activity or abuse that is damaging to the Website and the exercise and protection of the Controller’s rights in a court of law and dispute management: the interest of the Controller is the general, real, current interest in not suffering damages following unlawful conduct by a third party, insofar as this must prevail over the interests of the individual data subject;

B. only with prior consent for the following purposes:

1. Marketing Purposes, in particular for:

– sending of commercial and promotional communications relating to products, services, special initiatives and invitations to events through newsletters and/or automated tools (e-mail, social media, social chat, etc.)

For further information about how Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd. processes Data, including the legal basis to which Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd. refers, and about how to exercise data subject rights in regard to Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd., please read the Facebook Ireland Data Policy available at https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation;

– In particular, the Data Controllers’ Website uses what are termed “social plug-ins”. Social plug-ins are special tools that allow for the incorporation of social network functions directly within the Website (e.g. the “Share” button or the Facebook icon to redirect to the Facebook page from the Mutti website). All social plug-ins featured on the website are marked with the respective proprietary logo of the social network platform. The collection and use of information obtained by means of the plug-in are regulated by the respective privacy disclosures of the social networks, to which you are recommended to refer.

When you visit a page of our website and interact with the plug-in (e.g. by clicking on the “Share” button or the Facebook icon to redirect to the Facebook page from the Mutti website) or you decide to leave a comment, the relevant information is sent by the browser directly to the social network platform (in this case Facebook) and saved by it. More information about how Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd. processes Data, including the legal basis to which Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd. refers, and about how to exercise data subject rights in regard to Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd., is available from the Meta Platforms Ireland Ltd. Data Policy available at https://www.facebook.com/privacy/explanation

5. NATURE OF CONFERRAL OF DATA

Conferral of data in respect of the purposes pursuant to letter A) is mandatory, and any refusal to do so will make it impossible for the Controller to fulfil the contractual commitments made or follow up on your requests or fulfil legal obligations. As regards the purposes pursuant to letter B.1) above, conferral of personal data is optional and its use is subject to the giving of explicit consent by the Data Subject. Any refusal to give such consent will have no effect, except that it will not be possible to inform the Data Subjects about initiatives run by the Company that may be of their interest. Instead, as regards the purpose pursuant to letter B.2), conferral of personal data is optional and its use is subject to a voluntary interaction with the social plug-in by the Data Subject. Failure to interact shall have no consequences and the Data Subject may continue to browse the Website even without interacting directly with the social network platform.

6. METHODS OF DATA PROCESSING

The Data of the Data Subjects is processed using electronic means through the collection, recording, update, organisation, storage, consultation, elaboration, selection, extraction, comparison, use, interconnection, blocking, erasure and destruction of the Data.

Specific security measures are observed to prevent loss of data, unlawful or incorrect use and unauthorised access.

With reference to the purposes pursuant to points A) of paragraph 4 (Purpose of processing) above, Data will be processed for the entire duration of the relationship in order to achieve the specified purposes and in any case for no more than 10 years from contract execution, if a contract is concluded.
