8. Your rights.
You may exercise these rights by contacting the Data Controller:
A) Right of access: the right to obtain from the Controller the confirmation whether or not there is an ongoing processing of your personal data and in this case, to gain access to the data and the detailed information concerning the origin of the data, the purposes of the processing, the categories of processed data, the recipients of their communication and/or transfer and whatever else concerns you.

B) Right to rectification: the right to obtain from the Controller the rectification of personal data that is incorrect, without undue delay, as well as the completion of personal data that is incomplete, also by providing a supplementary statement.

C) Right to erasure (“right to be forgotten”): the right to obtain from the Controller the cancellation of the data in the cases provided for when:
– The data are no longer needed in relation to the purposes for which they were collected;
– The consent has been withdrawn and there is no other legal basis which makes the processing lawful;
– The data have been processed unlawfully;
– The data must be erased for a legal obligation;

D) Right to restriction: the right to obtain from the Controller the restriction of the processing when, among others, the accuracy of the data themselves has been contested. This restriction will allow the Controller to verify the accuracy of the data. Furthermore, if the processing is unlawful and the data subject has objected to erasure.

E) Right to object: the right to object, at any moment, to the processing of data that have the legitimate interest of the Controller as a legal basis and/or that are processed for the purpose of direct marketing, profiling included.

F) Right to data portability: the right to receive your personal data in a structured format of common use and readable by automatic devices, and to transmit such data to another Data controller. This right is to be exercised only when the processing is based on consent or on a contract and only for electronic data.

G) Right of withdrawal of given consent: the right to withdraw, at any time, the consent previously given, without undermining the lawfulness of the processing based on the consent given before the withdrawal.

H) Right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority: the right to lodge a complaint with a competent supervisory authority if the data subject thinks that the processing that involves them violates the Regulation. This right may be exercised through the supervisory authority of the Member State where the data subject resides or works, or in the State where the alleged violation took place.

9. Legal or contractual obligation relating to the communication of data.
The conferment of data is mandatory as required by legal and contractual obligations (point A of the purpose), therefore, a refusal would make it impossible for our Company to establish and/or continue the relationship.
The conferment of other data not connected to legal and contractual obligations but referable to commercial, marketing, advertising and promotional activities, for the detection of the degree of customer satisfaction and similar purposes (point B of the purposes), as well as data concerning profiling, point C) of the purposes, is instead optional because data are collected to optimize the relationship with the customer within our business. The refusal to provide data for these purposes, while not jeopardizing the contractual relationship, will make it impossible to propose commercial and promotional initiatives, specifically targeted to the preferences of the counterparty offered by our company.
Therefore, an eventual refusal would imply the impossibility for our company to establish and/or continue the relationship, because it would not allow the entering of your name in the electronic lists that are necessary for the optimal and rational management of our marketing activities.
All of the above applies with the exception of those who intend to apply to participate as exhibitors, who must give their consent to point A, point B) and point C) of the purposes, which become compulsory and no longer optional, as participation in the exhibition requires the processing of data for profiling purposes and commercial and marketing advertising actions.

10. Automated decision-making processes.
Within our business there is no automated decision making process, including profiling, as per art. 22 paragraphs 1 and 4.
