Place of data processing and personnel

The processing operations connected to the web services of these sites take place at the suppliers of the internet services used to create and make the site available and at the offices of the Data Controller.

The data are processed only by the personnel in charge, also for any maintenance and administration operations of the processing systems.

Types of data processed
Navigation and technically indispensable data
The computer systems and software procedures used to operate this website acquire, during their normal operation, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communication protocols. This information is not collected to be associated with identified data subjects, but by its very nature could, through processing and association with data held by third parties, allow users to be identified. This category of data includes IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the site, URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numerical code indicating the status of the response given by the server (successful, error, etc..) and other parameters relating to the operating system and computer environment of the user. This data is used for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information on the use of the site and to check its correct functioning and is deleted immediately after processing. The data could be used to ascertain responsibility in the event of hypothetical computer crimes to the detriment of the site.
Data provided voluntarily by the user
Data relating to identified or identifiable persons may also be processed on the basis of further information communicated by the interested party: for example, by filling in data collection forms; or by the optional, explicit and voluntary sending of e-mails to the addresses indicated on this site, which implies the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s address, necessary to reply to requests, as well as any other personal data included in the communication.
E-commerce data and payments
The data processed for the management of purchase orders and payments through the telematic section on the website include personal data, addresses, purchase list, payment card data, reports and notes.
Profiling data
No profiling data are directly acquired regarding the habits or consumption choices of the person concerned. However, it is possible that through links or by incorporating third party elements, such information may be acquired by autonomous or separate subjects. See the Cookies section in this regard.


Like others, this website stores cookies on the browser of the user’s computer for the transmission of personal information and to enhance their experience. In fact, cookies are small text strings that the sites visited by the user send to his or her terminal (usually to the browser), where they are stored, sometimes with characteristics of wide temporal persistence, to be retransmitted to the same sites on the next visit.

As explained below, it is possible to choose whether and which cookies to accept, bearing in mind that refusing their use may affect the ability to carry out certain transactions on the site or the accuracy and suitability of some customizable content proposed or the ability to recognize the user from one visit to the next. If no choice is made in this regard, the default settings will be applied and all cookies will be activated: however, at any time, you may communicate or modify your decisions in this regard.

In particular, so-called session cookies are used, which are not permanently stored on the user’s computer and disappear when the browser is closed and whose use is strictly limited to the transmission of session identifiers (consisting of random numbers generated by the server) necessary to allow the safe and efficient exploration of the site and which avoid the use of other computer techniques potentially prejudicial to the confidentiality of the user’s navigation and do not allow the acquisition of personal identification data of the user.

Then we use analytics cookies that help to understand how visitors interact with site content, collecting information (geographical and web origin, technology used, language, entry pages, visits, exit pages, time spent, etc.) and generating website use statistics without personal identification of individual visitors. All these are to be considered technical cookies for which, since it is not necessary to give consent, the opt-out mechanism is in force. Technical cookies are not communicated to third parties as they are necessary or useful for the functioning of the site; therefore they are only processed by qualified subjects such as persons in charge, data processors or system administrators.

Finally, the site incorporates third party cookies (autonomous and for which the Owner has no responsibility) which also carry out profiling activities and for which reference is made to the respective sites:

Some people prefer not to enable cookies and for this reason almost all browsers offer the possibility to manage them in a way that respects users’ preferences.  In some browsers you can set up rules to manage cookies on a site-by-site basis, which gives you more precise control over your privacy. This means that you can disable cookies on all sites except those you trust.

Another feature available on some browsers is the incognito mode, so that all cookies created in this mode are deleted after closing.

Please see the following instructions for managing cookies in the relevant browsers:

Purpose of data processing, communication and diffusion

The personal data collected are used for the sole purpose of performing the services or performances requested and are communicated to third parties only if this is necessary for this purpose. The services include: consultation and mere use of the site and its contents; registration and access to the reserved area; donations and payments; subscription and receipt of the newsletter; reports; request for contact; etc..

For some of the services there are information indications for further information.

In any case, no data deriving from the web services is disseminated or published without the prior consent of the interested party.

Finally, please note that in some cases (not subject to ordinary management) the Public Authorities may request news and information, also of a personal nature, which the Owner is required to follow up.

Optional provision of data

Apart from that specified for navigation data and technically indispensable, the user is free to provide personal data for specific requests on products and/or services. Failure to provide certain data, considered indispensable, may make it impossible to obtain what has been requested.

Legal basis. Possible management of consent to processing 

When necessary, except in cases where the legitimate interest of both the Data Controller and third parties applies, and in any case after reading the information notice, the data subject is required to express his/her consent to the processing and communication of his/her data for the purposes and within the limits described, otherwise it will be impossible for the Data Controller to process the data in order to carry out and implement the services requested by the data subject or proposed to him/her.

Insights for specific services

Membership (become a member of the Banca del Vino)
The requested data are freely provided by the interested party: some of them (Name, Surname, Date of birth, Gender, Address, Telephone, E-mail, identity document, tax code) are indispensable; others are optional. Consent to the processing is required for the purposes and activities of an association, which, with the first registration, also includes the receipt of the newsletter (see the specific paragraph) for promotional and commercial communications, to which you can subsequently unsubscribe. The payment system provides for the communication of certain data to the bank providing the service.

The e-mail contacts used to send the periodic newsletter come from voluntary subscription by the recipient to whom a request for confirmation is always submitted, as well as from information acquired in the context of the sale of the Owner’s products or services or similar for legitimate interest. The newsletter includes the sending of information, commercial or promotional communications and material. Please note that contacts are not acquired from public subscriber directories. In the event that the communications are not of interest to the recipient, it is possible to avoid further mailings related to the specific channel by clicking on the unsubscribe link contained in each message of that channel, or to avoid further contact by writing to the contact details at the bottom of the page exercising your right to cancel the newsletter.

Treatment modalities

The processing of personal data, intended as collection, recording, organization, storage, processing, modification, deletion and destruction or the combination of two or more of these operations, is carried out by manual, computerized and telematic means, also in an automated manner, with logic strictly related to the stated purposes and, in any case, so as to ensure security and confidentiality and for the time strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which they were collected.

The data are processed lawfully and correctly, collected and recorded for specific, explicit and legitimate, exact, and if necessary updated, relevant, complete and not excessive with respect to the purposes of processing, in compliance with minimum security standards and fundamental rights and freedoms, as well as the dignity of the person concerned with particular reference to confidentiality and personal identity.

Specific security measures are observed to prevent data loss, illegal or incorrect use and unauthorised access.

The data will be stored until the end of the legal statute of limitations in order to defend oneself or assert a right in court, after the purpose (purpose of processing) for which the data was collected has been exhausted.

Personal data will not be transferred to a recipient in a third country or to an international organisation outside the European Union (EU) or the European Economic Area (EEA).
