The User is totally free to accept or not this request. If you decide to join APULIAN HOUSE may ask you to provide personal information, such as name, address, e-mail address and other data that identify the User. If the User makes a reservation request, for example, the information is used to register the license and the right, if any, to make use of technical support, updates or any other advantages that may be offered to registered Users. APULIAN HOUSE also makes use of the information provided by the User to support the effort to keep it constantly updated on special offers. APULIAN HOUSE recognizes and attaches great value to responsible use of this information. The data collected by the site during its operation are used exclusively for the purposes indicated above and kept for the time strictly necessary to carry out the specified activities. In any case, the data collected by the site will never be provided to third parties, for any reason, unless it is a legitimate request by the judicial authority and only in the cases provided for by law, to ascertain responsibility in the event of hypothetical computer crimes against the Site.


The optional, explicit and voluntary sending of e-mails to the addresses indicated on the APULIAN HOUSE website involves the subsequent acquisition of the sender’s address, necessary to respond to requests, as well as any other personal data included in the message. Specific summary information is progressively reported or displayed on the pages of the site set up for particular services on request. In particular, the e-mail addresses that are imported into the forms of the Site are used exclusively to offer the requested services and will not be disclosed to anyone; even those in charge of data processing of APULIAN HOUSE can have access to the addresses only to carry out maintenance activities or to restore the functionality of the services. If the Site allows the insertion of comments, or in the event of a request for information or specific services, some identification data of the user, including the email address, are automatically detected and recorded. These data are intended to be voluntarily provided by the user at the time of requesting service provision. By inserting a comment or other information, the user expressly accepts the privacy information, and in particular agrees that the contents inserted are freely disclosed to third parties as well. The data received are used exclusively for the provision of the requested service and only for the time necessary for the provision of the service. The information that users of the site will deem to make public through the services and tools made available to them, are provided by the user knowingly and voluntarily, exempting the owner from any liability regarding any violations of the law. It is up to the user to verify that they have permission to enter personal data of third parties or contents protected by national and international standards.


Apart from that specified for navigation data, the user is free to provide his personal data through the use of the appropriate sections of the Site and to request or solicit the sending of informative material or other communications. Failure to provide them can only make it impossible to obtain what has been requested. For the sake of completeness, it should be remembered that in some cases (not subject to the ordinary management of the Websites) the Authorities may request news and information pursuant to article 157 of Legislative Decree n.196/2003 and subsequent amendments for the purposes of monitoring the processing of personal data. In these cases, the answer is mandatory under penalty of an administrative fine.


Unless the interested party explicitly expresses his will to remove them, personal data will be kept for as long as they are necessary with respect to the legitimate purposes for which they were collected. In particular, with regard to the management and provision of services relating to contact requests forwarded by the interested party, such data will be kept for no longer than a maximum period of 12 months; furthermore, in the event of acceptance of a contract, they will be kept for the entire duration of the contract itself and in any case no later than a maximum period of 12 (twelve) months from the last of the active Services connected to it, or if, within this period, there are no active and/or purchased Services of the Products through a contract. Personal data will in any case be kept for the fulfillment of obligations (e.g. tax and accounting) which remain even after the termination of the contract (art. 2220 of the civil code); for these purposes, the Data Controller will only keep the data necessary for the related prosecution.


The Data Controller has adopted specific and adequate security, technical and organizational measures, including encryption and authentication tools, to maintain the security of personal data. In particular, the security measures protect the data against the risk of loss, illicit or incorrect use and are intended to prevent unauthorized access, in compliance with the obligations to adapt to minimum security measures. Given the nature of the treatment and the specialization of APULIAN HOUSE in Web technologies, suitable and preventive security measures are adopted and implemented in accordance with the provisions of art. 31-34 of the Privacy Code and article 32 of the GDPR. For security purposes (spam filters, firewalls, virus detection), the automatically recorded data may possibly also include personal data such as the IP address, which could be used, in compliance with current laws, in order to block attempts to damage the site itself or to cause damage to other users, or in any case harmful activities or activities constituting a crime. These data are never used for user identification or profiling. This information is processed on the basis of the legitimate interests of the Data Controller for the purpose of protecting the site and its users.

Personal data is processed only for the time necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was collected.


APULIAN HOUSE, without the consent of the interested party being necessary, can communicate the data necessary for the performance of specific tasks to proceed with the treatments that pursue the same purposes for which the data were collected. For this reason, the processed data can be accessed by:
    • employees and collaborators of the Data Controller, in their capacity as persons in charge and/or internal data processors and/or system administrators;
    • third-party companies or other subjects (as an indication, web server providers, e-payment service providers, suppliers, credit and digital payment institutions, hardware and software assistance technicians, shippers and carriers, professional firms, etc.) who carry out outsourced activities on behalf of the Data Controller, in their capacity as data processors.
The Data Controller requires its third-party suppliers and Data Processors to comply with security measures similar to those adopted in relation to the Data Subject, restricting the scope of action of the Data Processor to the processing connected to the requested service.


Unless explicitly indicated in the information relating to individual treatments, the personal data collected is not communicated to third parties or disseminated. Without the express consent of the interested party (ex art. 24 letter a), b), d) Privacy Code and art. 6 lett. b) and c) GDPR), the Data Controller may communicate the personal data being processed to Supervisory Bodies, Judicial Authorities as well as to all other subjects to whom the communication is mandatory by law.


The management and storage of personal data are carried out in Europe, on computers and servers located in Italy, by the Data Controller and/or third-party companies appointed and duly appointed as Data Processors. The personal data of the interested party are stored in paper, IT and telematic archives located in countries where the GDPR is applied (EU countries).


The Site may share some of the data collected with services located outside the European Union area. In particular, with Google and Facebook through social plugins and the Google Analytics service. The transfer is authorized on the basis of specific decisions of the European Union and of the Guarantor for the protection of personal data, in particular the decision 1250/2016 (Privacy Shield), for which no further consent is required. The companies mentioned above guarantee their adherence to the Privacy Shield.


The interested party has the rights pursuant to art. 7 Privacy Code and subsequent amendments and art. 15 GDPR and precisely the rights of:

    • oppose, in whole or in part: a) for legitimate reasons, the processing of personal data concerning you, even if pertinent to the purpose of the collection; b) to the processing of personal data concerning you for the purpose of sending advertising material or direct sales or for carrying out market research or commercial communication, through the use of automated call systems without the intervention of an operator by e-mail and/or by traditional marketing methods by telephone and/or paper mail. It should be noted that the right of opposition of the interested party, set out in point b) above, for direct marketing purposes through automated methods extends to traditional ones and that in any case the possibility remains for the interested party to exercise the right of opposition also only partially. Therefore, the interested party can decide to receive only communications using traditional methods or only automated communications or neither of the two types of communication;
    • as well as, more generally, to exercise all the rights recognized by the current provisions of the law.
Where applicable, you also have the rights pursuant to articles 16-21 GDPR (right to rectification, right to be forgotten, right to limitation of treatment, right to data portability, right to object), as well as the right to complain to the Guarantor Authority.
