This page contains a description of how the web site manages the processing of the personal data belonging to the browsers who use it. This information is provided pursuant to art. 13 of Lgs.D. no.196/2003 - Data Protection Act to the users of the Altaeco S.p.A. web services, which can be accessed telematically from the www.appiani.it web site.
The subjects who use the Altaeco S.p.a. Group’s web sites (www.bardelli.it – www.appiani.it – www.gabbianelli.it –www.ceramicavogue.com) for professional purposes are required to comply with the provisions in the Data Protection Act and, in particular, with those in art. 130 regarding unsolicited communications (use of automatic call systems, e-mail, telefax, MMS or SMS texts), and those imposed by art. 130.3-bis, which requires that all subjects wishing to telemarket products/services to companies and consumers must consult the telephone preference service (TPS).
With regard to the option of being contacted for marketing purposes via the use of the telephone number published on the www.appiani.it web site, users who do not wish to be contacted by telephone for such purposes must expressly opt out by registering their number with the TPS (in Italy: Registro delle Opposizioni [www.registrodelleopposizioni.it], governed by D.P.R. 7/9/2010 no. 178). Therefore the consent previously expressed on that regard (and according to which the telephone numbers published in telephone directories could not be used for marketing communication purposes) is no longer effective, unless the users had expressly consented to it (by having a telephone handset added next to their names in the telephone directories).
