The processing of personal data by the Data Controller for the purposes set out below is carried out by means of computerised tools with logics strictly related to these purposes and, in any case, in such a way as to guarantee data security and confidentiality in compliance with the law.

3.1. To reply to requests received by the Data Controller by filling in the forms in the “Contacts” section of the Website.

The legal basis for this processing is the performance of contractual obligations and the requests made by the data subject.

The retention period of such data is equal to the time required to process the request. This retention period may be longer if the data subject undergoes another specific processing.

3.2. To enable the Customer registered in the Customer Area to take advantage of the services available on the Website relating to the product purchased at poltronesofà's points of sale.

In particular, the Customer will be able to download the warranty for the product purchased, view the purchases already made, and follow the order cycle (e.g. follow the delivery process of orders being processed, or request information and assistance).

The legal basis for this processing is the performance of a contract to which the data subject is one of the parties.

The retention period for such data is 10 years from delivery of the product purchased.

3.3. For marketing and profiling purposes: Subject to the consent given by the User and/or the Customer, poltronesofà may send promotions, commercial communications or advertising on its products, services and events, also based on the profiling of the User and/or the Customer through the creation of group and/or individual profiles for personalised communications in line with the interests of the same, using the data processed to collect information relating to the preferences, habits, lifestyles of the User and/or the Customer, as well as details of the purchases made.

Marketing activities may also include the performance of market research and surveys to detect User and/or Customer satisfaction, or to carry out statistical analyses, also with anonymous data organised in aggregate form.

For sending newsletters, marketing communications and/or personalised offers, poltronesofà may use channels such as emails, operator telephone calls, SMS, MMS, chat, instant messaging, social networks and traditional mail, including sending invitations to organised events.

The legal basis for this processing is the consent of the data subject. At any time, the User and/or the Customer may revoke their consent by means of the "unsubscribe" or "disiscriviti" button at the bottom of the communications received, or by means of a request to the Data Controller.

The retention period of such data is until the User's and/or Customer's consent is revoked.

3.4. Soft Opt-in: poltronesofà may send by email promotions, commercial communications or advertising relating to offers on products and services similar to those purchased by the Customer, unless the latter refuses to receive such communications at any time.

The legal basis for this processing, which does not require the Customer's consent, is Article 130, paragraph 4 of the Italian Privacy Code, provided that it concerns communications on products or services similar to those purchased by the Customer and that the latter, after being adequately informed, does not refuse the use of his/her email address for this purpose, either initially or on the occasion of subsequent communications received.

As a general rule, the retention period of such data is until the Customer's consent is revoked.

3.5. To detect the location of the User and/or the Customer, with their consent, in order to indicate the nearest poltronesofà’s points of sale on the map.

The User and/or the Customer may deactivate the geolocation option at any time, even temporarily, via the browser settings or the settings of the device he/she uses.

3.6. To prevent or prosecute offences or infringements of rights (including those of third parties) or computer crimes or offences committed via telematic networks.

The legal basis for this processing is the legitimate interest of poltronesofà as data controller. The data retention period is equal to the time reasonably necessary to enforce poltronesofà's rights from the moment the latter becomes aware of the offence or its potential commission.
