Privacy policy


Dear user,

Manica S.p.a. encourages you to read this statement, which describes the ways in which we handle the personal data provided by you on signing up for the newsletter.

1.1 We are committed to protecting the privacy of our newsletter subscribers and guarantee that data are processed in compliance with the provisions of the Italian Privacy Act (legislative decree 30 June 2003, no. 196).

1.2 Personal details acquired directly by Manica S.p.a. – the data controller – are collected and processed with the aid of hardcopy, computer and online means, depending on how they are to be handled, for the purpose of conducting business with the newsletter subscriber to carry out this contract and send relevant communications, as well as for the purpose of fulfilling any legal obligations and of handling business dealings effectively so as to be able to provide the required service in the best possible way (art. 24, paragraph 1, lett. b of the Privacy Act D.Lgs. no. 196/2003).

The supply of personal data is optional, but if you fail to provide said data, we will be unable to provide the service set out in the contract.

Our actions are governed by the regulations of the Italian information commissioner’s office and, more specifically, general regulation no. 152 of 19 June 2008 on the “Simplified practices for fulfilling certain obligations in the public and private sphere with regard to processing for administrative and accounting purposes”, as published in the Italian Official Gazette on 1 July 2008;

and general regulation no. 142 of 24 May 2008 on the “Practical guide to simplification measures for small and medium enterprises”, as published in the Italian Official Gazette on 21 June 2007.

1.3 Manica S.p.a. undertakes to process data and information submitted by the Purchaser confidentially and not to disclose them to unauthorized persons or to use them for any purpose other than those for which they were originally collected or to pass them on to third parties. These data may only be presented on request from the court or other legally authorized authority.

1.4 Personal data will only be shared – and only once a confidentiality agreement has been signed to protect the data in question – with parties tasked with performing the activities required to carry out the contract you have entered into and will be shared only for said purpose.

1.5 Users who sign up for the newsletter have the rights awarded by art. 7 of the Italian Privacy Act (legislative decree 196/03), namely the right to ask for: a) data to be updated, corrected or, if so desired, added to; b) unlawfully processed data to be deleted, transformed into anonymous form or blocked. This shall include any data that do not need to be kept for the purposes for which the data were originally collected or subsequently processed; c) a statement attesting that the operations mentioned under letters a) and b) have been made known (including their contents) to all parties to/with which data have been communicated or shared, except the case in which it proves impossible to comply or would require a clearly disproportionate effort. The data subject is also entitled to object, either fully or in part:

  1. i) to the processing of personal data held on him/her, for legitimate reasons, even where said data are relevant to the purpose of collection;
  2. ii) to the processing of personal data held on him/her for the purpose of sending advertising material or direct sales or for the purpose of carrying out market research or sending sales announcements.

iii) the user authorizes Manica S.p.a. to carry out direct marketing for the promotion of its services and indirect marketing, involving passing data on to third parties o that they can also promote their own services or the services of Manica S.p.a.

1.6 We rely on receiving personal data from you in order to carry out this contract correctly and promptly. If we do not receive said data, we will be unable to provide the service requested.

1.7 Whatever the case, the data acquired will be kept for no longer than necessary to achieve the purposes for which the data were originally collected or subsequently processed. Data will nonetheless be removed in a secure manner.

1.8 The data controller in charge of collecting and processing personal data is Manica S.p.a. and any requests from users can be addressed to the data controller at the company’s headquarters.

1.9 Any information or data (requests, suggestions, ideas, information, material, etc.) sent to Manica S.p.a.’s postal address or email address will not be deemed to be of a confidential nature, must not violate the rights of others and must contain valid, truthful information that is not harmful to the rights of others. Whatever the case, Manica S.p.a. disclaims all responsibility for the content of said messages.
