Personal data collected through the Website will be processed in full compliance with the applicable legislation, guaranteeing the security, confidentiality and protection of the data in its possession, respecting the fundamental rights and freedoms that are recognised to the Data Subjects, in accordance with European Regulation 2016/679, hereinafter GDPR.

Data are collected from the Data Subject. The IT systems and software procedures used to operate this Website acquire, as part of their routine operation, certain personal data whose transmission is implicit in the use of the Internet.
Inside this Website we collect information that can identify you as an individual ("personal data") and we may also process certain data relating to your device, such as the anonymised IP address of your device and activity in relation to the types of services you use with your consent where required.
The personal data processed through the Website are as follows:
A. Automatically collected browsing data: data are not collected to be associated with identified Data Subjects, but by its nature could allow the identification of browsing users through processing and association with data held by third parties. This category of data includes "IP addresses" or the domain names of the computers used by users who connect to the Website, the Uniform Resource Identifier (URI) of the resources requested. IP addresses are saved in "anonymised" form. The visible portions of data are used only to obtain anonymous statistical information on the use of the Website and to check the proper functioning of the TEKNE S.p.A. Website.
B. Cookies: the Website uses certain cookies and the data collected through them may be used to access certain parts of the Website or for statistical and profiling purposes or to make the browsing experience more pleasant and efficient in the future, trying to assess user behaviour and to modify the content offer according to their behaviour. More information about cookies is available in the "Cookie Policy" section below.
C. Data related to Websites and Third-Party Services, Plug-Ins: the Website may contain links to other websites or applications. The Website also incorporates plug-ins and/or buttons for social networks to allow easy sharing of content on your favourite social networks. These plug-ins are programmed so as not to set any cookies when the users access the page, in order to protect the privacy of the users. Cookies may be set, if so provided by the social networks, only when the user makes effective and voluntary use of the plug-in. Please note that if users browse the Website whilst logged into the social network then they have already consented to the use of cookies conveyed through this Website at the time of registration with the social network: services may be used to analyse traffic on this Website, potentially containing personal data of users, in order to filter it from parts of traffic, messages and content recognised as SPAM (Google reCAPTCHA, SPAM protection service provided by Google Inc.). The collection and use of the data obtained by means of plug-ins are governed by the respective privacy policies of the social networks, to which reference should be made.


The Website requests certain information from the browser in order to offer a quality service.
These are browsing preferences, logins and cookies used for the proper functioning of the Website and in order to offer a better service.
The Data Controller may process the data to:
  • manage the Website, the Services and for internal operations, including troubleshooting and, where legitimate, data analysis, testing, statistical purposes and surveys;
  • improve the Website and ensure that the content is presented in the most effective way for browsing;
  • keep the Website secure and for the establishment of liability in the event of computer crimes against the Website and legal protection.

The use of technical cookies does not require consent as it is necessary for the execution of a contract or pre-contractual measures (Article 6, paragraph 1, letter b of the GDPR) of the Data Controller so that the functions of the Company Website can be used and enjoyed as a result of the browsing carried out by the user. The use of profiling cookies is carried out with the consent of the Data Subject.

Cookies are small text strings sent by the server to the web client (browser) and sent back by the latter to the server. They are used to offer the user a better browsing experience, for technical reasons and to analyse the performance of the Website. The user can decide not to install cookies or to accept them, as well as change his/her decision at a later date. For information purposes, in addition to blocking the cookies present on this Website, the user can manage the browsing data through the settings relating to the storage of cookies on his/her device by accessing the browser settings, or the application settings, and setting the relevant rules.
Cookies can be first or third party, where "first party" means cookies that have the Website as their domain, and "third party" means cookies that are related to external domains. Third-party cookies are necessarily installed by an external party, always defined as a "third party", not managed by the Website.
Technical Cookiesallow certain sections of the Website to function correctly.
There are two categories of cookies: persistent and session cookies:

  1. persistent cookies: once the browser is closed they are not destroyed but remain until a pre-set expiry date;
  2. session cookies: they are destroyed each time the browser is closed.

The use of cookies does not always require the express consent of the user. In particular, no consent is required for technical cookies, i.e. those used for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication on an electronic communication network, or to the extent strictly necessary to provide a service explicitly requested by the user. These cookies are therefore essential for the operation of the Website or necessary to perform activities requested by the user.
These cookies, which are always sent from our domain, are necessary to view the Website correctly and in relation to the technical services offered, and will therefore always be used and sent, unless the user changes the settings in their browser (which would affect the display of the pages of the Website).
Analytical cookies are used to collect information about the use of the Website. This type of cookie collects anonymous data about user activity and how users arrived at the Website. Analytical cookies are sent from the Website itself or third party domains.
Profiling cookies, where used, are necessary to create user profiles in order to send advertising messages in line with the preferences expressed by the user within the pages of the Website. The consent of the Data Subject is required for the use of profiling cookies. According to provision no. 229 of 8 May 2014 and provision no. 231 of 10 June 2021, the user must be able to authorize or deny consent to the installation of profiling cookies if they are requested.
On TEKNE S.p.A.  platforms, a session cookie is used strictly limited to what is necessary for the safe and efficient browsing of the Website.
With regard to some specific services, products, promotions, etc. TEKNE S.p.A.  may process your data also for commercial purposes. In these cases, a specific, separate, optional and always revocable consent will be required with the methods and the contact details indicated below.

As already highlighted above you could access the site or connect to areas where you could publish information using blogs or page, to communicate with others, for example coming from the TEKNE S.p.A. page.  on Facebook®, LinkedIn®, YouTube®, and other social networking sites, review products and offers, and post comments or content. Before interacting with these areas, we invite you to carefully read the general conditions of use considering that, in certain circumstances, the information published can be viewed by anyone with access to the Internet and all the information you include in your publications can be read, collected and used by third parties.
As is well known, social networks independently regulate their privacy for those who browse, publish posts and communicate through them, being, in this case, the main Data Controllers.
However, when the user is on social pages managed by TEKNE S.p.A. and communicates, in various ways, their personal data (e.g. through a private message or commenting on a post or leaving a review), or when social networks provide some statistics on the use of the pages in a non-anonymous way (and therefore related to the activity on the page by the specific person), TEKNE S.p.A.  becomes the Data Controller.
The processing of the user's personal data will take place by means of the tools made available by the social networks themselves.
If technical and/or analytical functionality cookies are disabled, the Website may not be accessible or certain services or functions of the Website may not be available or may not function properly.
In the case of third party cookies, the Website has no direct control over individual cookies and cannot control them (it cannot directly install or delete them). However, the user can manage these cookies through the browser settings.
Below is a list of the ways in which the browser stores cookies during browsing with links to the websites of the respective providers.

However, you can always delete cookies from your computer's hard drive at any time. If cookies are disabled, not all functions of the Website will be available.
You may freely revoke your consent (if required) at any time, without any charge or prejudice to the lawfulness of the processing carried out up to that moment, and exercise the following rights of the Data Subject against the Data Controller.

The personal data processed by the Data Controller will not be disclosed.
The data may be communicated to external parties who collaborate with TEKNE S.p.A., as Data Processors (such as third party technical service providers, postal couriers, hosting providers, IT companies, communication agencies, website management personnel, platform for managing cookies and website consents), or other parties involved in the organisation of this Website (administrative, sales, marketing, legal and system administrator personnel).
Finally, the data may be communicated to the subjects entitled to access them under the provisions of the law, regulations, Community regulations. In order to comply with legal obligations or to ascertain responsibility in the event of computer crimes against the Website, the data may be communicated to, or allocated to, third parties.
The updated list of the Data Processors can always be requested from the Data Controller.
This is without prejudice to the obligation of TEKNE S.p.A. to communicate data to Public Authorities on specific request.

The data are processed at the Data Controller's operational headquarters and in any other place where the parties involved in the processing are located, therefore the Data Controller does not transfer this personal data to third countries or international organisations.
However, the Data Controller reserves the right to use cloud services; in which case, the service providers will be selected from among those who provide adequate guarantees, as provided for in Article 46 of the GDPR 2016/679. The equivalent levels of protection adopted for the processing of the personal data of the Data Controller's employees will be required for the processing of the information and data that may be communicated to these parties. In any case, only the data necessary for the pursuit of the intended purposes will be communicated and the regulatory tools provided will be applied.

In accordance with the principle of retention limitation (Article 5, GDPR), verification of the obsolescence of the stored data in relation to the purposes for which they were collected is carried out periodically. In particular:
a) automatically-collected data are processed, for the time strictly necessary, for the sole purpose of obtaining statistical information on the use of the Website and to check its regular operation, also for security purposes or according to the deadlines provided for by law;
b) the data provided voluntarily by the user will be kept for a period of time not exceeding the achievement of the purposes for which they are processed or according to the deadlines provided for by law.
c) The navigation data do not persist for more than 6 months (except for any need to ascertain crimes by authority).

The data are collected and recorded in a lawful and correct manner for the purposes indicated above in compliance with the principles of lawfulness and provisions of Article 5, paragraph 1 of the GDPR.
Personal data processing is carried out by means of manual, computerised and telematic tools with logic strictly related to the purposes and, in any case, in such a way as to guarantee security and confidentiality.
The provision of data for the aforementioned purposes is entirely optional. Any refusal by the Data Subject to provide personal data, the lack of consent or its revocation for one or more purposes, will make it impossible to use the services related to them.
The Data Subject may refuse to provide the Data Controller with his/her navigation data. To do this, he/she must disable the cookies by following the instructions provided by the browser in use. Disabling cookies may worsen or prevent you from navigating and enjoying the functionality of the Website.

In accordance with, within the limits and under the conditions provided for by the legislation on the protection of personal data regarding the exercise of the rights of Data Subjects (Articles 15 to 22), with regard to the processing operations covered by this Privacy Policy, as Data Subjects, users may exercise certain rights with reference to the data processed by the Data Controller.
In particular, the Data Subject has the right to:

  • Revoke consent at any time
  • Oppose the processing of their data
  • Access to their own Data
  • Verification and rectification
  • Restriction of processing
  • Deletion or removal of their personal data
  • Portability

Furthermore, the Data Subject has the right to lodge a complaint with the competent Data Protection Supervisory Authority or take legal action if he/she considers that the processing operations concerning him/her are in breach of the GDPR, pursuant to Article 77 of the GDPR.
The data subject may revoke consent at any time.
How to exercise your rights
If you wish to request further information on the processing of your personal data or to exercise your rights, you may do so in writing also to using the "Exercise of Personal Data Protection Rights Form" too. Requests are filed free of charge and processed by the Data Controller as soon as possible, in any case within one month.

The Data Controller does not, under any circumstances, carry out processing operations consisting of automated decision-making processes with regard to the processing operations indicated.

The Data Controller reserves the right to make changes to this Privacy Policy at any time by informing Users by email and on the Website. The Data Controller will collect the consent of the Data Subject again, if necessary.
