Privacy Policy

IP Addresses, Internet Browsers, Operating Systems, Domain Names: When you enter our website, we may collect your computer’s IP address. The IP address does not identify you as an individual, but does identify your Internet service provider. Other non-personally identifiable information that we may collect include the type of Internet browser used, the type of computer operating system used, and the domain
name of the website from which you visited our site. The information is aggregated to provide broad
demographic information, such as the geographic location of visitors and how long they stay on our site.
Collecting this type of information allows us to administer our site, diagnose server problems, analyze
trends and statistics, and provide better customer service.

Cookies

When you visit our website, we may send “cookies” to your computer. A cookie is a small text file or piece
of data that a website that you visit can place or save onto your computer. Cookies do not themselves
contain any personally identifiable information. However, if you provide such personally identifiable
information to us (such as by registering for an Internet related service or password provided by us), such
information may be linked to the data stored in the cookie. There are two types of cookies. The first type
saves a file for a longer period of time onto your computer, and it can remain on your computer after you
shut it off. Such cookie could, for example, be used to tell a visitor what information on the website has
been updated since his or her last visit to that website. The second type of cookie is called “session
cookie.” While you are visiting a website, session cookies are temporarily stored in your computer’s
memory. This could be done, for example, to keep track of what language you have chosen at the website.
Session cookies are not stored for a long period of time on your computer, since they disappear when you
close your web browser. We may use third parties to assist us in collecting or processing information
obtained through cookies.

We may use cookies for a number of reasons, such as:

- to compile anonymous statistics related to patterns and trends of browsing;
- to analyze sales data;
- to conduct marketing research;
- to user adapt website content or functions;
- to provide assistance to, or track site visits of users, of certain Internet-based services;
- to enable users with passwords to re-enter certain web pages without having to re-type
previously typed information.

How To Avoid Cookies:

With most Internet browsers, you can set the browser to block cookies, erase cookies from your computer
hard drive, or notify you that a web page contains cookies before a cookie is stored. Please refer to your
browser instructions or help screen to learn more about these functions. Please note that some of our
web pages may not work properly without the use of cookies.

Personal Information

This part explains how we collect, use, and share personal information that you provide to us, or that we
may otherwise obtain or generate, which relates to you (“Personal Information”). ABAC has
implemented technical, administrative, and physical measures to safeguard any Personal Information
that we may collect (see below). It is also clear that ABAC will always abide local laws and regulations
and will refrain from the collection or use of Personal Information in a location where it is prohibited by law.

What personal information might ABAC collect?

“Personal Information” is information through which a natural person is identifiable or may be identified.
We may collect, use and process your Personal Information in order to provide you with services, products
or information that you request.
We will not collect your Personal Information without your knowledge and permission, nor will we sell or
rent any such data. In order to provide you with a specific product, service, or information or to process a
transaction, we may request your personally identifiable information. This will be indicated whenever we
collect it.

How might ABAC use the Personal Information it collects?

Personal Information is only collected when necessary to provide a product, service, or information,
process a transaction, or if you submit it to us for other purposes, for instance if applying for employment.
The collection of Personal Information will be transparent to you (including indication of the legal basis
for the processing), and you will have the opportunity to decide whether or not to provide it. If you choose
not to provide any of the Personal Information requested, ABAC may be unable to complete your
transaction, or provide the information, services or products you have requested.

When collected, the Personal Information might be used for the following purposes:

- Deploying our web marketing activities:
o Emailing campaigns,
o Targeting and re-targeting,
o Participation confirmation.
- Responding to questions or concerns submitted to ABAC;
- Designing, selling, producing and improving products;
- Providing customer service and support;
- Training and certification of customer, supplier, and vendor personnel;
- As required or expressly authorized by applicable law or regulation.

Once collected, should there be no interaction with ABAC (email opening, form submission)
within the following six months, the personal data will be erased from our databases. This also applies
to users who opt out (unsubscribe).
In any event, we will not retain data longer than is necessary to fulfill the purposes for which it was
collected or as required by applicable laws or regulations.
If required, we may need to get your consent to allow us to use your Personal Information for one or more
of the purposes set out above. You have various rights where we are processing your Personal Information
on the basis of your consent. If at a later stage, you would like to withdraw the consent, we will make sure
such withdrawal can be done in a way which is as easy as the way the consent was given.

Who Personal Information may be shared with:

Because ABAC is a global company with locations in many different countries, we may transfer your
Personal Information from one legal entity to another or from one country to another in order to
accomplish the purposes listed above. We will transfer your Personal Information consistent with
applicable legal requirements and only to the extent necessary for the purposes set out above.
Within the group of ABAC companies, Personal Information is transferred subject to the same rules
and levels of security. If required, data processing agreements will be in place to ensure the
necessary level of protection.
ABAC relies on available legal mechanisms to enable the legal transfer of Personal Information
across borders. To the extent that ABAC relies on the standard contractual clauses (also called the
model clauses) to authorize transfer, ABAC will comply with those requirements, including where there
may be a conflict between those requirements and this Notice.
ABAC will not sell or otherwise share your Personal Information outside the ABAC company of
companies, except to:
- service providers that ABAC has retained to perform services on our behalf. ABAC will only
share your Personal Information with service providers whom ABAC has contractually
restricted from using or disclosing the information except as necessary to perform services
on our behalf or to comply with legal requirements;
- comply with legal obligations, including but not limited to, in response to a legitimate legal
request from law enforcement authorities or other government regulators;
- investigate suspected or actual illegal activity;
- prevent physical harm or financial loss; or
- support the sale or transfer of all or a portion of our business or assets (including through
bankruptcy).

To Remove, Correct, Update or Access Your Personally Identifiable Information:

If you would like to remove, correct, update, or access your Personal Information that you have submitted
to us, or if you have any related concerns, please contact us. If you contact us in this regard, please note
the web page name or location where you submitted the information, as well as the contact information
(for instance name, email address, postal address, etc.) that you provided at that time.

Security

Technical and administrative measures are implemented to help protect Personal Information and other data on our servers from unauthorized access, loss, or alteration. However, no server or transmission over the Internet can be guaranteed to be one hundred percent secure. Therefore, any activity or communication is conducted at your own risk. Further information and complaints For further information on the processing of Personal Information, please get in touch with our Group Privacy Officer (infosales@abac.it).
