Definition of “personal data”
“Personal data” means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’), an identifiable natural person is one who can be identified, directly or indirectly, in particular by reference to an identifier such as a name, an identification number, location data, an online identifier or to one or more factors specific to the physical, physiological, genetic, mental, economic, cultural or social identity of that natural person. This privacy policy concerns Your personal data collected via the Website and does not apply to other websites owned by third parties that may be accessible through a link from the Website.

Types of data processed and method of processing
Irplast collects various personal-data items from You. These include Your name, surname, email address, information gathered while You use the Website, and other personal data that You provide voluntarily or by requesting information by emailing the Website. You can access the Website without needing to provide Your personal data. Your personal data can therefore be processed by automated means while You browse. If You contact us to ask for information, then we shall collect Your personal data in order to reply.

Through the methods indicated in the informative note, the collected data, will be kept for a period of no more than 12 months, after which, if not used, they will be destroyed.

Website-use data
The information systems and software procedures deployed to operate the Website gather some personal-data items during normal usage. These items are sent to us as an inevitable result of communicating via the internet. When collecting this information, we do not seek to associate it with identified individuals. By its nature, however, it potentially could be used – by processing it and linking it with data held by third parties – to identify You. This category includes the following data: the IP addresses or domain names of computers that You use when visiting the Website; URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the resources requested; the time of the request; the method used to send the request to the server; the size of the file obtained in response; the numeric code for the response status from the server (success, error, etc.); and other parameters concerning Your operating system and computing environment. This information is used only to obtain anonymous statistical information on use of the Website and to ensure that the Website works properly. The data could potentially be used to investigate responsibility for any cybercrimes that damage the Site.

Data that You provide voluntarily
Irplast also collects the personal data that You enter voluntarily through the forms, with Your consent, as well as data that You email to Irplast. This is mainly information needed to contact You in reply to a request for information.

Personal data automatically saved on Your computer (“Cookies”)

Virtually all web browsers allow You to check which cookies are on Your hard drive, select and accept or to block all cookies, or to receive notification every time a cookie is placed.

Why we process Your personal data
With Your consent, Irplast will process Your personal data for marketing, business-development and customer-relations-monitoring purposes. For example, Irplast may send product information and news to Your email address.

In the case of sending a curriculum vitae, Irplast may also process specific categories of personal data, pursuant to Article 9 of the 2016/679 EU Regulation, or data suitable for detecting racial or ethnic origin, political opinions, religious or philosophical convictions, or union membership, as well as genetic data, biometric data, intended to uniquely identify a physical person, data relating to the health or sexual life or sexual orientation of the person. For such processing it is necessary to give consent. Any refusal to provide it may determine the impossibility for the Company to proceed with the examination of its application.
