Use of the site and management of services:
Your data is processed to allow registration on the Website, access to and supply of the services reserved to users registered on the Website and sending via the Website of a purchase order for the products available on the Website, with the consequent conclusion of the related contract of sale with FiloBlu, including any administrative and accounting formalities.

In this case, the legal basis is your consent.
With the sole aim of offering things, as far as possible, in line with your interests, we will perform certain analyses on aggregate data but without conducting any profiling on your specific habits. In this case, the legal basis is legitimate interest.
In any case there is absolutely no automatic decision-making process concerning you.
What we mean by legal basis:
This is the authorisation to process your personal data for a specific purpose.
You can change your mind whenever you like!
You can withdraw your consent at any time, by sending us an email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org, or by clicking on the opt-out key.
If you decide to withdraw your consent and there are no other reasons that authorise us to process your personal data, we will stop processing it. Conversely, if another legal basis were to authorise us, we would continue to process your data, still in compliance with your rights.
Processing your data is essential for gathering information prior to a purchase and for the performance of the relevant contract.
The processing of your data is possible on the basis of our legitimate interests or those of third parties, provided that these do not predominate over your rights and your freedoms. Legitimate interests may concern:
- gathering information from the way you behave on our website and/or applications;
- delivering, developing and improving our services;
- allowing us to improve, customise or modify our services and offerings;
- checking on the effectiveness of our marketing campaigns;
- improving data protection.
How we process your data:
Data is processed mainly using electronic means, with the exception of product shipping operations which may also be performed using manual procedures.
Your choices and rights:
You can decide not to provide us with your data
In this case, you can continue to browse our website, but we will not be able to provide you with any services without your personal data.
You can disable cookies by changing your browser settings
You can ask us not to use your data for marketing purposes
Before starting to process your data, we will inform you about our intention (if any) to use your data for marketing purposes, and (where appropriate) of the involvement of any third parties. You can withdraw your consent to receiving promotional messages by clicking on the appropriate link you will find in all our communications or by sending an email to the following address: email@example.com
You can always exercise your rights by sending us an email to the following address: firstname.lastname@example.org

This includes the right to ask us for further information about:

- the categories of any recipients who may be provided with your data;
- the period that the data will be stored, or if that is not possible, the criteria used to determine that period;
- the other rights regarding the use of your data.
We will provide you with the information within one month of receiving your request, unless this adversely affects the rights and freedoms of other parties (e.g. the confidentiality of another person or intellectual property) or if there are legal obligations that prevent us from doing so. We will inform you if we are unable to meet your request for these reasons.
You have the right to have your personal data rectified if it is inaccurate or not up to date
You have the right to have your personal data erased (right to be forgotten)
You can ask us at any time to erase your personal data in our possession, if the storage of your personal data is no longer required for processing purposes.
You have the right to transmit your data to another operator (data portability)
We will provide you with a copy of your data in an appropriate usable format, if you wish to transfer it to another operator. If you request it and it is technically feasible, we will directly transfer your data to the new operator. We will not make any transfer, in the event that the portability of your data also involves the disclosure of personal data to other individuals.
You have the right to object to us processing your personal data
You can at any time refer to the Supervisory Authorities to lodge any complaints you may have. But before doing that, try contacting us first! We will be pleased to resolve any issues regarding the processing of your personal data.
You have the right to object to the use of your data through automated decisions, including profiling
We might use your data to identify information that may potentially be relevant for you (for example, sending you customised e-mails based on your preferences that we have detected). Otherwise, we will use your information solely to provide you with our services.
We guarantee your rights even if we process your personal data on behalf of third parties
If we process your personal data on behalf of third parties, we guarantee that any requests made regarding the exercise of your rights will be provided to them without undue delay.
What level of security do we adopt in order to process your data?
We guarantee that your data is processed with the utmost security: we have, in fact, adopted physical, IT and organisational measures to ensure the protection of your data.
Nevertheless, we should remind you that:
- You provide us with your data at your own risk. We do everything within our power but, unfortunately, as the way things stand, there is no 100% secure means of data transmission.
- You need to keep your username and password safe at all times: you are the only one who knows them.
- If you feel that you have suffered a data breach, we would ask you to contact us immediately at email@example.com
