  1. Source of personal data

AEQUUS collects personal data directly from the user (by registration or during the purchase steps) with the exception of the data collected with the navigation as per section 2 (a) above.

  1. Analysis of user’s buying habits and selections

As indicated in Section 2 (e) above, with the user’s express consent, AEQUUS may also process the latter’s personal data for the purposes of analyzing user’s buying habits and selections, in order to make the AEQUUS products, services and initiatives more responsive to its customers’ tastes and needs.

  1. Personal data processing methods carried out by AEQUUS

The personal data collected through the Website of AEQUUS is primarily processed using computer and electronic means, adopting security measures in order to reduce to a minimum the risks of destruction or loss, including accidental loss, of the data itself, unauthorized access or processing without consent, or processing that is not in conformity with the purposes of collection indicated in this Privacy Policy.

However, these measures, due to the nature of the online transmission method, cannot limit or absolutely exclude the risk of access without consent, or of dissemination of data. To that end, we recommend that you periodically verify that your computer is equipped with the appropriate software devices to protect from the transmission of incoming and outgoing data on the network (such as up-to-date antivirus systems) and that the Internet service provider has adopted suitable measures to ensure the security of data transmission on the network (such as, for example, firewalls and antispam filters).

Each purchase on www.aequusnapoli.com is made with the utmost security thanks to the use of the most advanced technological systems and coding (SSL).

  1. Mandatory or voluntary nature of providing data

With the exception of the navigation data (the provision and collection of which are regulated by Section 7 “Cookies” of this page/Cookie Policy), the provision to AEQUUS of personal data, both for requests and queries, and for the purposes of marketing and analyzing consumer habits and preferences, is voluntary and optional. Failure to provide such data does not limit the use of the Website, although it may make it impossible for AEQUUS to respond to requests for information and queries, or to purpose customized products and services, or to send informational material, updates, newsletters and invites to AEQUUS events.

The provision of the data, especially personal details, email address, postal address, telephone number and bank details in case of credit card payments, is compulsory for executing, through the Website, the product purchase agreement.

Any failure by the data subject to provide us with the data may, therefore, constitute, as the case may be, a lawful and justified reason for not performing the agreement of the products purchased on the Website and not providing the related services.

The mandatory or voluntary nature of the data to be provided will be, if necessary, and as the case may be indicated by means of a special character (*) placed next to the relevant information or to the data the provision of which is necessary for the purpose of providing the services and for purchasing the products on the Website.
