– EU Regulation no. 679 of 27 April 2016 on the protection of natural persons with regard to the processing of personal data and on the free movement of such data (hereinafter the “Privacy Regulation”).


We wish to inform you that, following the sending of your curriculum vitae and in order to explore the possibility of turning your application into an employment relationship, we collect and process your personal data (as “Data Subject”) and possibly the personal data of your family members, which will be processed in accordance with current legislation on the processing of personal data.

The Privacy Regulation defines personal data as “any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person; an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person”.

The Privacy Regulation, Article 9, defines “special categories of data”, namely those revealing, for example, racial or ethnic origin, membership of a political party or holding of an elected public office, religious or philosophical beliefs, trade union membership, data concerning life or sexual orientation, or data revealing, for example, a general state of health (absence due to illness, maternity, accident or mandated work), fitness or unfitness for certain duties.

Personal data processing means the execution of “any operation or set of operations which is performed on personal data or on sets of personal data, whether or not by automated means, such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction”.

The updated list of Data Processors, where designated, may be supplied at the request of the Data Subject.

If a Data Protection Officer is appointed (under Article 37 of the Privacy Regulation), the latter’s identification details will be made known by being published, supplementing this policy.

2. Purposes and methods of data processing.

Your personal data are provided directly by you by registering with our recruiting platform so as to create your professional profile and send your curriculum vitae, either unsolicited or for the purpose of applying for specific job positions.

Your personal data are also processed to assess your application, to contact you for a possible professional interview and to carry out any other necessary activity to complete the selection operations aimed at your recruitment or collaboration with the Company, in compliance with the principle of equality between female and male candidates, which prohibits any gender-based discrimination pursuant to Legislative Decree no. 198, 11 April 2006 (Code of Equal Opportunities between men and women), as amended by Legislative Decree no. 5, 25 January 2010 and Law no. 183, 4 November 2010.

In this case, the Controller will process your personal data to implement the precontractual measures taken at your request and aimed at the possible establishment of an employment relationship or collaboration with the Company; therefore, your consent is not required.

Please note that the Company does not require the supply of personal data falling within the special categories of data referred to in Article 9 of the Privacy Regulation, for the purpose of the registration and creation of your professional profile; therefore, if your curriculum vitae contains such personal data, we will have to delete your curriculum vitae.

Such personal data are processed in accordance with the methods and limits defined by the law in force on personal data processing.

Please note that consent to the processing of personal data may be withdrawn at any time; the withdrawal of consent shall not affect the lawfulness of processing based on consent before its withdrawal.

In relation to the aforesaid purposes, personal data are processed by persons specifically designated and trained to process data under Article 2-quaterdecies of the Privacy Code and Article 29 of the Privacy Regulation, as well as by external parties (e.g. staff selection companies, external consultants for the processing of salary and contribution data, etc.), who may act as independent Data Controllers or be designated in writing as Data Processors; in any case, data processing will be carried out using manual, IT and telematic tools, with logics strictly related to the purposes thereof and otherwise in such a way as to ensure the confidentiality and security of personal data and in full and absolute compliance with current law.

Your data will be processed in Italy and, in any event, within the EU.

3. Mandatory or optional nature of data provision, consequences of any refusal and legal basis of data processing.

With respect to the aforesaid purposes, the provision of personal data is required, since a working relationship cannot be established with the Data Subject without it. Therefore, the legal basis of data processing is the assessment of the possibility of establishing an employment relationship with the Data Subject at the request of the same (pursuant to Article 6(1) b) of the Privacy Regulation).

4. To whom and in what context we may communicate the personal data of the Data Subject.

In relation to the purposes of data processing indicated above and within the limits strictly relevant thereto, your personal data will or may be communicated, in Italy, or otherwise within the EU:

(ii) to external consultants called upon to provide the aforesaid service, except where they are designated in writing as Data Processors.

The persons indicated above, to whom your personal data will or may be communicated (except where they are designated in writing as Data Processors), will process such personal data as Data Controllers in accordance with the law in force, acting in full autonomy, being not involved in any processing operations carried out by the Controller. A detailed and constantly updated list of these persons, with an indication of their respective offices, is always available at the Controller’s office.

Your personal data will not be disclosed.
