Your personal data is collected automatically while browsing the site.

While browsing to acquire information on the services provided by the Rina Group, i.e. without being registered for services or sections of the website, we will automatically collect and store certain user information (for example the type of device, the browser used, the date and time of visit, pages viewed) to help us provide an effective service (e.g. to adapt our website to the needs of your device - pc or tablet or smartphone - or to allow you to access restricted areas of our website). Furthermore, the normal functioning of the website makes it necessary to acquire some personal data which are not collected to be associated with identified data subject but which, by their very nature, could allow users to be identified through processing and association with data held by third parties, such as cookies or other tracking tools. For more information on the cookies used by the site, read the cookies policy at the bottom of this notice and visit in the specific sections dedicated to managing cookie preferences. The personal data collected is, therefore, necessary to guarantee access to the website.

The legal basis for this processing activity is the legitimate interest of the Data Controller in guaranteeing the functioning of the site and the possibility of using it effectively (art. 6, par. 1, lit.f) GDPR).
In addition, by using the website and browsing the individual sections, the user could provide further information by filling in the various forms: by way of example, the "Contacts" form, registrations for webinars and events. The data you could be asked are: name, surname, e-mail address, telephone number, any additional data included in the accompanying message (where provided); data may also be acquired relating to one's position in the company to which one belongs and, if necessary, also the job position held therein.
The legal basis that legitimizes the processing of the aforementioned data lies in the execution of pre-contractual measures adopted at the request of the data subject, so that he can be answered to requests for information or support forwarded, pursuant to art. 6, par. 1, lit. b) GDPR.

RINA, in fact, collects and uses these categories of personal data only to provide you with the services requested, to manage your registration, identify you and communicate with you.
In cases where a relationship with the Joint Controllers has previously been established (because a contract was signed, or because a request for information or support was made, or because you took part in one of our events), we may also contact you to detect the degree of satisfaction on the quality of the products and/or services covered by the contract/service, by sending surveys or requests via e-mail or via telephone contacts or also by sending you newsletters, commercial communications and/or advertising material on products and/or services offered by the company similar to those covered by the contract/service.

The legal basis of this processing coincides with the legitimate interest of the Data Controller to improve the quality of the services and to consolidate the contractual relationship already established with the data subject by keeping it updated, providing support, as well as improving the service (art. 6, par. 1, lit. f) GDPR).

Apart from the cases described above and regardless of the creation of an account on our website, provided that a contract has not been signed between the parties, the use of personal data for the possible sending of newsletters, advertising material, commercial information, sale of products or services by the Joint Controllers, can only take place after the user consent, by ticking the appropriate box in the specific sections of the site. The provision of this data is optional. You are therefore free to express your consent or refusal and to subsequently revoke the consent initially given.
