Methods and Location of Data Processing
Data processing is carried out using computers and/or IT-enabled tools following organizational procedures and modes strictly related to the indicated purposes. The owner, as well as certain authorized personnel involved in the operation of this website (such as administration, sales, marketing, legal, and system administration), may have access to the data.

Legal Basis of Data Processing
The owner may process personal data of users based on the following legal bases:
1. User Consent: Users have given their consent for one or more specific purposes. Please note that under some legislations, the owner may be allowed to process personal data until the user objects to such processing ("opt-out"), without relying on consent or other legal bases.
2. Performance of a Contract: Data processing may be necessary for the performance of an agreement with the user or for any pre-contractual obligations.
3. Compliance with Legal Obligations: Data processing may be necessary to fulfill a legal obligation to which the owner is subject.

Data Processing Location
Data processing takes place at the owner's operating offices and other locations where the parties involved in the processing are located. Depending on the user's location, data transfers may involve transferring the data to a country other than their own. Users are also entitled to learn about the legal basis of data transfers to a country outside the European Union or any international organization governed by public international law or set up by two or more countries, such as the UN, and about the security measures taken by the owner to safeguard their data.
Personal data is processed and stored for as long as required by the purpose for which it was collected. Therefore:
1. Personal data collected for purposes related to the performance of a contract between the owner and the user will be retained until such a contract has been fully performed.
3. The owner may be allowed to retain personal data for a longer period whenever the user has given consent to such processing, as long as such consent is not withdrawn. Furthermore, the owner may be obliged to retain personal data for a longer period whenever required to do so for the performance of a legal obligation or upon order of an authority.
Once the retention period expires, personal data will be deleted. Therefore, the right to access, the right to erasure, the right to rectification, and the right to data portability cannot be enforced after expiration of the retention period.
Users may exercise certain rights regarding their data processed by the owner. Users have the right to do the following:
1. Withdraw their consent at any time. Users have the right to withdraw consent where they have previously given their consent to the processing of their personal data.
2. Object to the processing of their data. Users have the right to object to the processing of their data if the processing is carried out on a legal basis other than consent.
3. Access their data. Users have the right to learn if their data is being processed by the owner, obtain disclosure regarding certain aspects of the processing, and obtain a copy of the data undergoing processing.
4. Verify and seek rectification. Users have the right to verify the accuracy of their data and ask for it to be updated or corrected.
5. Restrict the processing of their data. Users have the right, under certain circumstances, to restrict the processing of their data. In this case, the owner will not process their data for any purpose other than storing it.
6. Have their personal data deleted or otherwise removed. Users have the right, under certain circumstances, to obtain the erasure of their data from the owner.
7. Receive their data and have it transferred to another controller. Users have the right to receive their data in a structured, commonly used, and machine-readable format and, if technically feasible, to have it transmitted to another controller without any hindrance. This provision is applicable, provided that the data is processed by automated means and that the processing is based on the user's consent, on a contract which the user is part of, or on pre-contractual obligations thereof.
8. Lodge a complaint. Users have the right to bring a claim before their competent data protection authority.
To exercise their rights, users can contact the owner using the contact details provided in this document. These requests can be exercised free of charge and will be addressed by the owner as early as possible and always within one month.
