Through the Website you may communicate to Giochi Preziosi Personal Data related to other persons. In any situation where you decide to share Personal Data related to other persons, you will be considered as an independent data controller regarding that Personal Data and must assume all inherent legal obligations and responsibilities. This means, among other things, that you must fully indemnify Giochi Preziosi against any complaints, claims or demands for compensation for damages which may arise from the processing of this Personal Data, brought by the third parties whose information you provide through the Website. As Giochi Preziosi does not collect this information directly from these third parties (but rather collects them, indirectly, from you), you must make sure that you have these third parties’ consent before providing any information regarding them to Giochi Preziosi; if not, then you must make sure there is some other appropriate grounds on which you can rely to lawfully give Giochi Preziosi this information.

c. Browsing data

The Website’s operation, as is standard with any websites on the Internet, involves the use of computer systems and software procedures, which collect information about the Website’s users as part of their routine operation. While Giochi Preziosi does not collect this information in order to link it to specific users, it is still possible to identify those users either directly via that information, or by using other information collected – as such, this information must also be considered Personal Data. This information includes several parameters related to your operating system and IT environment, including your IP address, location (country), the domain names of your computer, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of resources you request on the Website, the time of requests made, the method used to submit requests to the server, the dimensions of the file obtained in response to a request, the numerical code indicating the status of the response sent by the server (successful, error, etc.), and so on. These data are used to compile statistical information on the use of the Website, as well as to ensure its correct operation and identify any faults and/or abuse of the Website. Save for this last purpose, these data are not kept for more than 14 months.

d. Cookies

Definitions, characteristics, and application of standards

Cookies are small text files that may be sent to and registered on your computer by the websites you visit, to then be re-sent to those same sites when you visit them again. It is thanks to these cookies that those websites can “remember” your actions and preferences (e.g., login data, language, font size, other display settings, etc.), so that you do not need to configure them again when you next visit the website, or when you change pages within a website. Cookies are used for electronic authentication, monitoring of sessions and storage of information regarding your activities when accessing a website. They may also contain a unique ID code which allows tracking of your browsing activities within a website, for statistical or advertising purposes. Some operations within a website may not be able to be performed without the use of cookies which, in certain cases, are technically necessary for operation of the website. When browsing a website, you may also receive cookies from websites or web servers other than the website being visited (i.e., “third-party cookies”).

There are various types of cookies, depending on their characteristics and functions, which may be stored on your computer for different periods of time: “session cookies”, which are automatically deleted when you close your browser, and “persistent cookies”, which will remain on your device until their pre-set expiration period passes. According to the law which may be applicable to you, your consent may not always be necessary for cookies to be used on a website. In particular, “technical cookies” – i.e. cookies which are only used to send messages through an electronic communications network, or which are needed to provide services you request – typically do not require this consent. This includes browsing or session cookies (used to allow users to login) and function cookies (used to remember choices made by a user when accessing the website, such as language or products selected for purchase). On the other hand, “profiling cookies” – i.e., cookies used to create profiles on users and to send advertising messages in line with the preferences revealed by users while browsing websites – typically require specific consent from users, although this may vary according to the applicable law.

Types of cookies used by the Website

The Website uses the following types of cookies:

  • Browsing or session cookies, which are strictly necessary for the Website’s operation, and/or to allow you to use the Website’s content and Services.

  • Function cookies, which are used to activate specific Website functions and to configure the Website according to your choices (e.g., language), in order to improve your experience.
  • Profiling cookies which are used to observe the preferences you reveal through your use of the Website and to send you advertising messages in line with those preferences.

Giochi Preziosi also uses third-party cookies – i.e. cookies from websites / web servers other than the Website, owned by third parties. These third parties will either act as independent data controllers from Giochi Preziosi regarding their own cookies (using the data they collect for their own purposes and under terms defined by them) or as data processors for Giochi Preziosi (processing personal data on Giochi Preziosi’s behalf). For further information on how these third parties may use your information, please refer to their privacy policies:

Giochi Preziosi intends to use your Personal Data, collected through the Website, for the following purposes:

  • To allow you to create and maintain a registered personal account; to save your collection within your personal account; to verify your identity and assist you, in case you lose or forget your login / password details for the Website, and to provide any other Services which you may request (“Service Provision”);
  • For future marketing, promotional and publicity purposes, including to carry out direct marketing, market research and surveys, via e-mail, SMS, mms, app, bot, regular mail, over the phone, and/or through Giochi Preziosi’s official social media pages, as well as for broader marketing activities, including prize events, games and competitions, regarding Giochi Preziosi’s products and services, as well as those of selected third parties (“Marketing”);
  • To create a profile of you as a Website user, through the use of profiling cookies and by collecting and analysing information on the preferences you select and choices you make in the Website, as well as your general activities on the Website when you log-in with your personal account. This profile will be used to give you information about other websites / services which Giochi Preziosi believes you may be interested in, and to show you information and advertisements which may be relevant to you and your interests. All algorithms involved in this processing are regularly tested, to ensure the processing’s fairness and control for bias (“Profiling”);
  • For compliance with laws which impose upon Giochi Preziosi the collection and/or further processing of certain kinds of Personal Data (“Compliance”);
  • To prevent and detect any misuse of the Website, or any fraudulent activities carried out through the Website (“Misuse/Fraud”).

4. Grounds for processing and mandatory / discretionary nature of processing

Giochi Preziosi’s legal bases to process your Personal Data, according to the purposes identified in Section 3, are as follows:

  • Service Provision: processing for these purposes is necessary to provide the Services and, therefore, is necessary for the performance of a contract with you. It is not mandatory for you to give Giochi Preziosi your Personal Data for these purposes; however, if you do not, Giochi Preziosi will not be able to provide any Services to you.
  • Marketing: processing for these purposes is based on your consent. It is not mandatory for you to give consent to Giochi Preziosi for use of your Personal Data for these purposes, and you will suffer no consequence if you choose not to give it (aside from not being able to receive further marketing communications from Giochi Preziosi). Any consent given may also be withdrawn at a later stage (please see Section 8 for more information).
  • Profiling: processing for this purpose is based on your consent. It is not mandatory for you to give consent to Giochi Preziosi for use of your Personal Data for this purpose, and you will suffer no consequence if you choose not to (aside from not being able to benefit from greater personalisation of your user experience regarding the Website). Any consent given may also be withdrawn at a later stage (please see Section 8 for more information).
  • Compliance: processing for this purpose is necessary for Giochi Preziosi to comply with its legal obligations. When you provide any Personal Data to Giochi Preziosi, Giochi Preziosi must process it in accordance with the laws applicable to it, which may include retaining and reporting your Personal Data to official authorities for compliance with tax, customs or other legal obligations.
  • Misuse/Fraud: Information collected for this purpose is used exclusively to prevent and detect fraudulent activities or misuse of the Website (for potentially criminal purposes).

5. Recipients of Personal Data

Your Personal Data may be shared with the following list of persons / entities (“Recipients”):

  • Entities which act typically as data processors on behalf of Giochi Preziosi, such as: i) persons, companies or professional firms providing Giochi Preziosi with advice and consultancy regarding accounting, administrative, legal, tax, financial and debt collection matters related to the provision of the Services; ii) entities engaged in order to provide the Services (e.g., hosting providers or e-mail platform providers); iii) persons authorised to perform technical maintenance (including maintenance of network equipment and electronic communications networks);
  • Persons authorised by Giochi Preziosi to process Personal Data needed to carry out activities strictly related to the provision of the Services, who have undertaken an obligation of confidentiality or are subject to an appropriate legal obligation of confidentiality (e.g., employees of Giochi Preziosi);
  • Other companies within the Giochi Preziosi Group for internal administrative purposes, including the processing of clients' or employees' Personal Data; and
  • Public entities, bodies or authorities to whom your Personal Data may be disclosed, in accordance with the applicable law or binding orders of those entities, bodies or authorities;

6. Transfers of Personal Data

Some of your Personal Data may be transferred to Recipients located in several different countries. Giochi Preziosi implements appropriate safeguards to ensure the lawfulness and security of these Personal Data transfers, such as by relying on adequacy decisions from the European Commission, standard data protection clauses adopted by the European Commission, or other safeguards or conditions considered adequate to the transfer at hand. More information on these transfers is available upon written request to Giochi Preziosi at the address indicated in Section 8 below.

7. Retention of Personal Data

Personal Data processed for Service Provision will be kept by Giochi Preziosi for the period deemed strictly necessary to fulfil such purposes (e.g., to keep your collection of Gormiti within your account). In any case, as these Personal Data are processed for the provision of the Services, Giochi Preziosi may continue to store this Personal Data for a longer period, as may be necessary to protect Giochi Preziosi’s interests related to potential liability related to the provision of the Services.

Personal Data processed for Marketing and Profiling will be kept by Giochi Preziosi from the moment you give consent until it is withdrawn. Once consent is withdrawn, Personal Data will no longer be used for these purposes, although it may still be kept by Giochi Preziosi, in particular as may be necessary to protect Giochi Preziosi’s interests related to potential liability related to this processing.

Personal Data processed for Compliance will be kept by Giochi Preziosi for the period required by the specific legal obligation or by the applicable law.

Personal Data processed for preventing Misuse/Fraud will be kept by Giochi Preziosi for as long as deemed strictly necessary to fulfil the purposes for which it was collected.
