Definition of “personal data”
“Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’), 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. This privacy policy concerns Your personal data collected via the Website and does not apply to other websites owned by third parties that may be accessible through a link from the Website.

Types of data processed and method of processing
DOT collects various personal-data items from You. These include Your name, surname, email address, information gathered while You use the Website, and other personal data that You provide voluntarily or by requesting information by emailing the Website. You can access the Website without needing to provide Your personal data. Your personal data can therefore be processed by automated means while You browse. If You contact us to ask for information, then we shall collect Your personal data in order to reply.

Through the methods indicated in the informative note, the collected data, will be kept for a period of no more than 12 months, after which, if not used, they will be destroyed.

Website-use data
The information systems and software procedures deployed to operate the Website gather some personal-data items during normal usage. These items are sent to us as an inevitable result of communicating via the internet. When collecting this information, we do not seek to associate it with identified individuals. By its nature, however, it potentially could be used – by processing it and linking it with data held by third parties – to identify You. This category includes the following data: the IP addresses or domain names of computers that You use when visiting the Website; URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested; the time of the request; the method used to send the request to the server; the size of the file obtained in response; the numeric code for the response status from the server (success, error, etc.); and other parameters concerning Your operating system and computing environment. This information is used only to obtain anonymous statistical information on use of the Website and to ensure that the Website works properly. The data could potentially be used to investigate responsibility for any cybercrimes that damage the Site.

Data that You provide voluntarily
DOT also collects the personal data that You enter voluntarily through the forms, with Your consent, as well as data that You email to DOT. This is mainly information needed to contact You in reply to a request for information.

Personal data automatically saved on Your computer (“Cookies”)
DOT may keep some personal data about You on Your computer. This comprises text files called cookies, which enable DOT to enhance Your browsing experience on the Website. Virtually all web browsers allow You to check which cookies are on Your hard drive, to block all cookies, or to receive notification every time a cookie is placed. Please note, however, that certain parts of the Website cannot be used without the relevant cookie. DOT also uses “session cookies”; they disappear when You close the browser, and they are not saved permanently on Your computer. In any case, they are used strictly for sending the session identifiers needed for exploring the Website securely and efficiently. Session cookies do not collect personal identifying data about You.

Why we process Your personal data
With Your consent, DOT will process Your personal data for marketing, business-development and customer-relations-monitoring purposes. For example, DOT may send product information and news to Your email address.

In the case of sending a curriculum vitae, DOT may also process specific categories of personal data, pursuant to Article 9 of the 2016/679 EU Regulation, or data suitable for detecting racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical convictions, or union membership, as well as genetic data, biometric data, intended to uniquely identify a physical person, data relating to the health or sexual life or sexual orientation of the person. For such processing it is necessary to give consent. Any refusal to provide it may determine the impossibility to proceed with the examination of its application.

Providing Your personal data is optional
Except as regards the Website-use data (as stated above), You may choose whether to provide Your personal data when requesting goods or services – that is, when sending requests for information to the Website via email.

Providing personal data
The personal data on You that DOT collects through the Website will be accessible to those DOT employees and bodies formally designated as Processors or Data Supervisors.

Protecting Your personal data
DOT protects the personal data that we process, by taking the security measures required under Regulation (UE) 2016/679. These measures block unauthorized third-party access to personal data and to the Website and prevent personal data from being used without permission.

Your rights regarding Your personal data

You are intitled to have data deleted, anonymized or frozen if it has been processed unlawfully. In any event, you can also object, for legitimate reasons, to Your data being processed.
