SICCE undertakes to guarantee the protection of your personal data and the correctness of their use.
Principles of privacy
What personal data do we collect?
Not all personal data of users are recorded. The main reason we collect personal data is to improve the service, products and experiences according to the expectations of the users.The definition of personal data may vary slightly in different countries. In order to ensure the privacy and protection of your data, by personal data we mean any information that can be used to trace your identity or that of another person.We collect personal data from users in several ways. This section describes the different ways of collecting users' personal data and how they are used. For more details on how we use your personal data, please see the section entitled "How do we use users' personal data?".
Data communicated by users
Data collected through SICCE products
In addition to the information that users communicate to us about themselves and their SICCE products, we will collect and manage personal data directly from connected products. By connected product we mean a SICCE product or activated through a SICCE app.We will collect information on the use of our connected products (for example when and for how long they are used), their reactivity and any errors (or potential errors).Some data collected using connected products and apps will allow us to determine the geographic location of the connected product.The correct interaction with some connected products (i.e. Smartphones, household devices connected via WiFi that communicate with the ContrAll Sicce App), or their specific functions, would be compromised if we did not collect certain personal data.
Data collected through online interactions
We collect and store some personal information and statistical data aggregated anonymously from all visitors to our websites and users of our apps, whether they are communicated to us directly or by detecting them from browsing the websites or using the apps. The data we collect includes: IP address of the device used, browser in use, operating system, date and time of access, Internet address of the website from which you went to ours through a link and information on how to use our websites or app.We use this information to monitor the operation of our sites and apps and see how they are used and what information is viewed most.In addition, we collect and manage information on user adherence to our online promotional and advertising campaigns, even outside our websites (for example on Google, YouTube and social media).This information is collected mainly through cookies and similar technologies.
Communications by e-mail
SICCE sends the users of its products or services assistance communications by e-mail. With your consent, we will also send you information on news that may interest you, including announcements on new products, promotions, or events for SICCE product owners: we want to be sure that our communications are welcome. The methods for updating or changing the settings relating to our communications, including their cancellation, are available in the section below entitled "How do I change the user's contact method?"We collect information about user interactions with our e-mails: if they arrive at their destination, if they are opened, if the user decides to acquire more information about a news, for example by clicking on a link included in the e-mail, and if we are asked not to send further communications, for example by clicking on the unsubscribe option included in all our email communications. We use this information both in isolation and in combination with the data that users have shared with us, so that we can stop sending marketing or assistance communications when requested. We also use them to make email communications more interesting by providing you with relevant content and experiences based on your previous interactions. You have the right to object to the use of information for this purpose (see the section below entitled "User controls and choices").
We really appreciate social media interactions. You can use social media to contact us about SICCE products or to spread your views on our products. We follow social media and online sites to better understand public opinion on SICCE, our products, technology, and services, and to assist consumers who prefer to contact us through social media.Sometimes the information we collect from social media and online sites, including Facebook, YouTube, Instagram, Tik Tok, Twitter, Pinterest, Blog, LinkedIn includes personal data that has been posted online and is publicly available. We make sure to mention the sources of the information used or to make it anonymous.In turn, these websites and social media sites generally have their own privacy policies that explain how to use and share the user's personal data. We recommend that you read the privacy policies carefully before using these sites to be aware of how your personal data is collected and used.
Data collected at stands and at events
When you go in person to stands or events, you may provide us with personal data such as your name, contact information (see the section entitled “Data communicated by users”).In addition, we will collect personal information about users using videos and photographs. We could film and photograph some of our events and exhibitions; we will use videos and photographs for our business purposes, for example to post them on our social media pages. We will display notices at stands or at events that we intend to film or photograph, to inform users that by doing so we will collect personal information about them.How do we use users' personal data?The main reason we collect and use your personal data is to improve the service, products and experiences according to your expectations.

Why do we manage users' personal data in the ways described?
The rules on data protection and privacy protection in force in some countries allow the processing of personal data if there is a "legal basis" or a "legitimate foundation" for such activity. Broadly speaking, this means that we must have a legal justification for handling users' personal data. In most cases, we need to manage users' personal data in order to:
● provide users with the products or services they have requested; And
● Make sure that our products, sites and apps work properly and offer all the functions that users expect.Sometimes the use of personal data is not strictly necessary to allow us to provide users with products and services, or to ensure that they function properly. In these cases, we manage users' personal data for what is called a "legitimate interest", for:
● identify and prevent fraud;
● maintain the security of our sites, apps, products and IT systems;
● ensure the maximum efficiency of our internal processes, procedures and systems;
● analyze and improve the information we collect;
● verify the effectiveness of our promotional and advertising campaigns; And
● customize and improve the way people buy and engage customers in the future.Some personal data communicated by users is optional and is specifically indicated as such (for example when you update your account information). We will explain how we intend to use them, and users who choose to provide them implicitly grant their consent. You can ask us at any time to delete the aforementioned information by contacting SICCE customer service or by sending an e-mail to our Global Privacy Team at email@example.com.Finally, in some relatively limited circumstances, we will have to manage users' personal data in a certain way to comply with our legal obligations: for example, we may disclose personal data if requested by regulatory bodies or judicial authorities.Ultimately, the reason we use your personal data in the way we do is to be able to improve, directly or indirectly, our products, our services, and your overall experience of SICCE as a company. Regardless of the reason that justifies the processing of users' personal data - whether it serves to provide them with a product or is in our "legitimate interest" -, we will always take all possible measures to honor the commitment we have made: to protect their privacy.
