Privacy policy

(Personal Data Protection Code)

General Introduction
This Privacy Policy is intended to describe the management of this website owned by Dino Bikes SpA, with regard to the processing of personal data concerning the site users/visitors.
This notice is only intended for the Website for which it was drafted and does not relate to any other websites users may access by clicking on the hyperlinks featured in the Website.
This notice is also designed to inform the Website users of the terms and conditions for Dino Bikes Spa’s processing of any personal data they should decide to provide.
Users should carefully read this notice before providing any type of personal information and/or completing any e-forms available on the Website.

Article 4 of Italian Legislative Decree 196/2003 (Personal Data Protection Code) governs the processing of personal data. “Data processing” means: “any operation or set of operations carried out with or without the aid of electronic instruments, concerning the collection, recording, organisation, storage, consultation, processing, modification, selection, extraction, comparison, use, interconnection, blocking, communication, dissemination, deletion and destruction of data, even if not recorded in a data bank”. “Personal data” means: any information regarding a natural person, legal person, entity or association, identified or identifiable, even indirectly, through reference to any information, including a personal identification number.
The notice is also based on the guidelines contained in Recommendation no. 2/2001, which was adopted on 17 May 2001 by the European data protection authorities within the Working Party set up under Article 29 of European Directive 95/46/EC in order to lay down certain minimum requirements for collecting personal data online and specifically with regard to methods, timing and the nature of the information to be provided by data controllers to users visiting web pages for whatever purpose.
As a general rule, the law requires that the data subject give their consent to the processing.
Also, the law requires that the data subject be provided with certain information, included in this notice.

It is hereby declared that the site acquires no personal user data.
The site can be accessed by users without their needing to provide their personal data.

Browsing data
In the normal course of their operation, the computer systems and software procedures for running this Website acquire certain personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of Internet communications protocols. By their nature, these internet traffic-related data are not collected to be automatically associated to identified subjects; however, by their very same nature, they could allow the identification of website users/visitors, through processing or association with data held by third parties. This data category includes IP addresses or domain names of computers used by users who connect to the site, URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of requested resources, the time of the request, the method utilised to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in reply, the numerical code indicating the status of the response from the server (successful, error, etc.) and other parameters related to the operating system and computer environment of the user.
These data may be used solely to obtain anonymous statistical information on visits/use of the Site and to check its correct functioning and are deleted immediately after processing. The Site Owner stores these data only for the period strictly necessary and in any case in accordance with applicable regulatory provisions.

Data supplied voluntarily by the user
If customers wish to register with the site data bank, if any, in order to access the services it provides, they should fill in a form, giving their express consent to the processing of data. Users are free to provide their personal data, but not providing them may make it impossible to obtain the requested service.
The optional, explicit and voluntary dispatching of electronic mail to the addresses indicated on this website entails the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s address, necessary in order to reply to the requests, and also any other personal data contained in the message.
The personal data provided by users who send requests for any information (e.g. newsletters, etc.) are only used to perform the service or work requested and are not distributed. Although the provision of personal data by users is optional, it is useful to the provision of certain services. In these cases, therefore, failure to provide data could affect or render impossible the service’s delivery. The data could also be used to ascertain responsibility in case of suspected computer crimes against the Site.

Minors: the website should not knowingly be used to request data from minors under 18.

A – Purposes of the data processing
Introduction. Article 28 (Data Controller) of Italian Legislative Decree 196/2003 states: “When processing is carried out by a corporate body, by a public administration or any other entity, association or body, the data controller is the entity as a whole or the department or peripheral unit which has a completely autonomous decision-making power on the purposes and methods of processing, including the security profile.”
Now, therefore, Dino Bikes Spa, the Site Owner, informs you that the personal data in its possession – collected directly from the data subject, including verbally in the past, or through third parties, or data freely disclosed in the future, including by email, by the same data subject or by third parties – may be processed also by third-party companies designated as Data Processors, for the following purposes:

  1. Accounting, administrative, tax purposes etc., in compliance with the obligations foreseen by the relevant laws, provisions and EU regulations, or by the provisions laid down by authorised Bodies and Supervisory Bodies.
    The provision of personal data required for such purposes is mandatory and the consent of the data subject is not required for their processing. Refusal by the data subject to confer personal data shall prevent all commercial relationships with the Site Owner.
  2. Purposes strictly related and instrumental to the management of contract relationships with customers, either existing or being negotiated (e.g. acquisition of information prior to the execution of a contract, execution of operations on the basis of obligations arising from contracts entered into with customers, verification and assessment of results and relationship progress, as well as of all related risks, etc.)
    The data subject is not obliged to confer personal data required for such purposes, but refusal to do so may make it impossible for the Site Owner to provide the service, with regards to the relation between the data and the service required.

If the said data is conferred, it may be processed without the consent of the data subject.

B – Data processing methods

  1. Means and logics
    In relation to the aforementioned purposes, processing is performed using manual, IT and electronic means with logics strictly related to the aforesaid purposes and, in any case, in such a way as to ensure the security and confidentiality of the data and with the commitment from you to inform us promptly of any corrections, modifications and additions.
    This processing may be carried out on behalf of the Data Controller for the purposes and in the ways described above and in accordance with criteria that ensure security and confidentiality, by companies, studios, bodies and external collaborators appointed Data Processors and only in relation to the processing carried out by them.
  2. Duration
    Personal data shall be kept for the whole duration of the contractual relationship. After that, they may be processed to fulfil legal obligations and for any marketing purposes.
  3. Sensitive data
    None of your personal data, held by the Data Controller, can be classified as “sensitive data” or “judicial data”, as provided for by letters d) and e) of Article 4 of Italian Legislative Decree 196/2003. If you do supply these kinds of data, in the absence of your express written consent, we shall immediately proceed to delete them from our database.

C – Categories of individuals to whom the data may be communicated and who may become privy to them in their capacity as Data Processors or Persons in charge of the processing and the scope of disclosure of such data.

Introduction: personal data shall not be disclosed in any way, including for consultation purposes.

  1. The Data Controller may disclose the personal data in its possession without requesting the consent of the data subject, to any third party for which such disclosure is required by law, by provisions or EU regulations.
  2. With the consent of the data subject, the Data Controller may also communicate the personal data in its possession to companies, studios, bodies and external collaborators which process the data on its behalf for the purposes detailed in paragraph 2, Section A.
    The data subject has the right to be informed of the identification of any subjects to which personal data may be disclosed and can exercise such right through a simple request made to the Data Controller identified in point E.
  3. The natural persons and legal entities referred to in points B 1) and C 2) may become privy to the data in their capacity as Data Processors, and the natural persons belonging to the categories set out may also become privy to the data in their capacity as Persons in charge of the processing, as regards the data required to perform their assigned duties: Site Owner staff, project–based contract workers, temporary contract workers, apprentices, consultants, external staff working on the Site Owner’s premises, staff belonging to external companies appointed as Data Processors, and workers with shareholdings.

D – Rights of the data subject

Ref.: Identification of the simplified arrangements for providing information and obtaining consent for the use of cookies. Provision no. 229 of 8/5/2014 – Published in Official Gazette 126 of 3/6/2014

This site uses cookies, including third-party ones, to offer services in line with the browser’s preferences and in some cases to send advertising messages. By closing the banner of the brief notice on cookies present on the site, by scrolling the pages, by clicking on a link or continuing to browse in any other way, you are consenting to the use of cookies. If you want to learn more or opt out of all or some cookies read through the information below in all its parts.

Cookies are small text files that are sent to the user’s terminal equipment (usually to the user’s browser) by visited websites; they are stored in the user’s terminal equipment to be then re-transmitted to the same websites on the user’s subsequent visits to those websites. While browsing a website, users may also receive cookies at their terminal that may be sent by other sites or web servers (known as “third-party” cookies) that may contain certain elements (such as images, maps, sounds, and specific links to pages in other domains) present on the website the users are visiting.
Cookies, which are usually found in large numbers in user browsers and which at times can also remain there for long periods, are used for various purposes: to perform computer authentications, monitor sessions, store information on specific configurations regarding the users who access the server, etc.
In order to correctly regulate these devices, they must be distinguished – given that there are no technical characteristics setting them apart from each other, – according to the purposes for which people us them. Moreover, steps in this direction have been taken by the legislator who, by implementing the provisions set forth in directive 2009/136/EC, has brought back the obligation to acquire users’ prior informed consent to the installation of cookies used for purposes other than the purely technical (pursuant to article 1, paragraph 5, letter. a) of Italian Legislative Decree No. 69 of 28 May 2012, which amended Section 122 of the Code).
From this standpoint and for the purposes of this provision, cookies may be divided into two major groups: “technical” cookies and “profiling” cookies.

a. Technical Cookies
Technical cookies are those used exclusively with a view to “transmitting a communication on an electronic communications network, or insofar as this is strictly necessary to the provider of an information society service that has been explicitly requested by the contracting party or user to provide the said service.” (See article 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).
They are not used for further purposes and are usually installed directly by the Site owner or manager. They can be broken down into browsing or session cookies, which ensure normal browsing and use of a website (e.g. to purchase items online or for users to authenticate themselves to access private areas); analytics cookies, which can be equated to technical cookies insofar as they are used directly by the website manager to collect aggregate information on the number of visitors and the pattern of visits to the website; functional cookies, which allow users to browse according to certain pre-determined criteria (such as language or products selected for purchase) so as to improve the quality of service provided to the user.
Users’ prior consent is not required to install these cookies, whilst information under Section 13 of the Code has to be provided in the manner considered to be most appropriate by the website manager – if only such devices are used.

b. Profiling Cookies
Profiling cookies are designed to create profiles for the user and are used in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences displayed by the same while surfing the net. Given how highly intrusive these devices may be in the private lives of the users, European and Italian legislation requires the user to be properly informed of the use of the same and express their valid consent.
These cookies are referred to in article 122 of the Code, which provides that “Storing information, or accessing information that is already stored, in the terminal equipment of a contracting party or user shall only be permitted on condition that the contracting party or user has given their consent after being informed in accordance with the simplified arrangements mentioned in article 13, paragraph 3” (art. 122, paragraph 1, of the Code).

Subjects involved: publishers and “third parties”
The subjective element also needs to be considered in order to correctly define the matter under consideration. That is to say, account should be taken of the entity installing cookies on the user’s terminal, which may be the manager of the website visited by the user (which can be referred to in short as the “publisher”) or the manager of another website that installs the cookies through the former (so-called “third party”).
In the light of public consultation, it is deemed necessary that the above distinction be taken into due account, also in order to appropriately outline the respective roles and responsibilities with reference to issuing the notice and obtaining consent from users online.
There are many reasons why the publisher cannot be obliged to provide information and to obtain the consent to the installation of cookies on its own website also for those installed by “third parties”. The publisher therefore declines any and all responsibility for requests and/or release of personal data to third-party sites.
