In order to offer you the personalized services provided by our company website, Cinzia Rascazzo (Artisans of Taste /Stile Mediterraneo), as Data Processor, must process some identification data necessary for the delivery of these services.

We only collect information about you if we have a reason to do so–for example, to provide our products/services, to communicate with you, or to make our services better.

Personal data we collect may include your name, email address, IP address; personal account preferences, including data concerning health; transactional data, such as purchase information; and technical data, such as information about cookies.

We collect information in three ways: automatically through operating our Services, if and when you provide information to us, and from outside sources.

a) Information we collect automatically (Navigation data)

The computer systems and technical procedures and software supporting the proper functioning of this website acquire some personal data during their normal operation, whose transmission is implicit in the operational mechanisms and the protocols in use on the Internet.

Each time a user logs on to this site and whenever he/she calls or requests content, the related access data is stored in our systems and, potentially, also by the Data Processor and by the persons in charge of processing, in the form of tabular or linear structured and/or unstructured data files .

Data we collect may include:

  • The website from which our webpage has been called (so-called “referral”);
  • Your IP address;
  • Location information;
  • The date and time of the request or access;
  • The technical code of the http response obtained from the server (error, success, etc.);
  • The amount of data transmitted;
  • The browser, its technical and functional characteristics and the operating system used.
  • Cookies and other technologies

This data will be used by the Data Processor for the sole purpose of obtaining anonymous statistical information about use of the site in order to identify the pages most visited by users and to provide improved content, as well as check that the site is functioning properly.

b) Data supplied voluntarily by the user

In several areas of this site you have the opportunity to send us personal data (e.g. your e-mail address, name, zip code, transaction and billing information and other data that may relate to your identity). The sending of these data takes place on an explicitly voluntary basis and entails the subsequent acquisition of the email address of the sender and any other personal data sent for the purposes you agree to.

The information you provide will be processed by Cinzia Rascazzo (and its brands) exclusively with procedures necessary to provide the services you have requested and for the following purposes:

(1.) Opt-in to email programme: To provide you with information on our courses and programs and on the topic in general.

(2.) Waiting List: To let you know when a course or service opens or is closing.

(3.) Transaction: To process a purchase you make with us.

(4.) Submitting Questions: To answer questions you might have for us.

The personal information that you provide will be recorded and stored on electronic media that are protected and treated with appropriate security measures.

The data that you provide will not be disclosed but may be transmitted, if necessary for the provision of the service, to companies that on behalf of Cinzia Rascazzo (and its brands) perform technical or organizational tasks required in order to provide the services requested.

C) Data We Collect from Other Sources

We may also get information about you from other sources. For example, if you connect your account to a social media service (like facebook) we will receive information from that service (such as your username, basic profile information, and friends list) via the authorization procedures used by that service. The information we receive depends on which services you authorize and any options that are available.
