This section contains the main information documents required by Italian privacy laws.
Access to some sections of the website and/or certain requests for information or services may require the provision of personal data. This information will be processed by the Bank, as data controller, in accordance with the Privacy Code as amended.
This policy is intended to inform users of how the Bank uses customer data, even before they access the website or give their details. Users must therefore read the policy before giving their personal details, by completing the relevant sections on the website where requested.
This policy only applies to the website of the Bank, not to other websites that may be visited through the links on it.
Personal information is mainly processed by automated means, and is only used for the time necessary to fulfil the purpose for which it was gathered. Specific security measures will be observed to prevent the loss of data, any illegal or inappropriate use, or unauthorised access.
The data may be transferred or disclosed to other companies owned by or affiliated to the Bank, for activities closely linked to service functionality such as management of the IT system, or for use by other group companies with the same purposes. The personal data provided by users requesting informative materials (brochures etc) will only be used for the purposes of providing the requested service and will only be disclosed to third parties (providers of enveloping, labelling and despatching services) if necessary. Apart from the cases mentioned above, personal information will not be disclosed or released to anyone except where required by contract, or with the authorisation of the data subject. Personal information may be disclosed to a third party, but only in cases where:
Provision of personal data is optional, but is sometimes necessary (i.e. where the field is marked with an asterisk) in order for the Bank to fulfil the user's requirements with regard to site functions. Non-provision, or partial or inaccurate provision of personal data marked with an *, where required for fulfilment of the requested service, will make it impossible to complete the service. The non-provision, partial or inaccurate provision of optional information will only result in the impossibility of sending materials, communications or information requested by the user.
The IT systems and software procedures used on this website will routinely acquire certain types of personal data, the transmission of which is implicit in the use of the Internet. This information is not gathered for the purposes of matching with identified interests, but may enable the identification of the user through elaboration and matching with data held by a third party. This category of data includes IP addresses, or domain names of the user's computers, URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the web server, the size of the response file, the digital code indicating the status of the response from the web server, and other parameters relating to the user's operating system and IT environment. This data is only used to gather anonymous statistical information on the use of the website and check its correct functioning. This information may be used to verify liability in the case of computer fraud against the bank's website or against other connected or linked websites. Except in such cases, data on web contracts is currently not held for more than a few days.
The optional, voluntary sending of emails to the addresses on this website will result in the sender's address being acquired for the purposes of responding to the requests. Any personal information included in the email will also be acquired.

The above data will be used to gather anonymous statistical information about the use of the call centre, to check its proper functioning and to guarantee security, also to verify liability in the case of any offences against the Bank or its customers.
