YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP, Bottega Veneta SA and the companies of Kering Group may be jointly or respectively the Controllers of your Personal Data as they determine the E-Commerce purposes and means of processing Personal Data. For the E-Commerce purposes only, YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP and Bottega Veneta SA have appointed certain entities that will also process Personal Data relating to the Site’s Users (herein the “Processors” or where mentioned individually “Processor”).
The above mentioned service providers and Processors have been chosen because of their experience in processing Personal Data and they provide sufficient safeguards regarding compliance with the Governing Law (including the technical security measures governing the processing to be carried out). In processing the Personal Data for E-Commerce Purposes, the Processors shall act only under the instructions from YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP or from Bottega Veneta SA. We regularly check that our Processors comply with our instructions and that they continue to provide sufficient guarantees regarding their full compliance with the provisions on Personal Data processing.
Some of the Processors of your Personal Data appointed by YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP for E-Commerce purposes directly are:
United Parcel Service, for purposes related to shipping, delivering and returning products purchased on bottegaveneta.com;
BT Italia S.p.A., for purposes related to the housing of YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP servers;
XCSE Abramo GmbH for call center services.
Bottega Veneta SA has appointed ContactLab S.r.l., with registered office at Via Natale Battaglia 12, 20127, Milan, Italy, as a data Processor for Marketing Purposes.
For the E-Commerce purposes, we and YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP collect your Personal Data (such as personal details, e-mail address, address, credit card numbers, bank code, tax code and telephone number, etc.) on your order form only for the purpose of selling the products ordered by you. Your Personal Data is mostly processed by electronic means and, in some circumstances, by paper-based means, such as when the processing of your Personal Data is required for preventing fraud on the Site. Your Personal Data shall be stored in a way which allows us to identify you for the period necessary for the purposes which the data was collected for and subsequently processed and, in any case, in accordance with the Governing Law. Please report any modification of your Personal Data to our Customer Care or through your personal account on the Site in order to ensure that your Personal Data is always accurate and up-to-date, relevant and complete. Your Personal Data shall not be disclosed to third parties for purposes which are not permitted by law or without your consent.
Aside from the Processors appointed for Personal Data processing, your Personal Data will also be made available to third parties, autonomous controllers, for purposes related to supplying services requested by Users (for example, for purchase transactions) or for purposes of third parties. For more information on the matter, see section 4 (To Whom Your Personal Data Will Be Disclosed). Please contact our Customer Care if you would like to receive a full list of our Processors involved in processing your Personal Data.
For the Marketing Purposes, we may process your Personal Data as well as browsing data (“Traffic Data”) resulting from the use of our Services by any User, via both automated and non-automated means, including by phone, mail and email, in order to provide Users with customized contents and offers on our Services or to deliver any newsletter they subscribed to, subject to their discretionary right to withdraw their subscription to such newsletter or to oppose or object to the receiving of any advertising or marketing content which we think is of interest to a specific User. For Marketing Purposes, Personal Data and Traffic data is mostly processed by electronic means and shall be stored for us in any case, in accordance with the Governing Law and made available to our Processors.
Moreover, your Personal Data may be disclosed to the police or to judicial authorities, according to the Governing Law and upon a formal request by such entities, for example in the event we need to prevent fraud on the Site (anti-fraud services).
Processors will also have access to your Personal Data as stated in section 2 for the specific purposes stated therein. In all the above circumstances, your consent for data processing is not required as Personal Data Processing would be necessary for the performance of E-Commerce purposes.
3. What Happens if You Do Not Disclose Your Personal Data to us?
Granting your Personal Data to us and YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP (in particular, your personal details, your e-mail address, your address, your credit/debit card numbers and bank code and your telephone number) is necessary for processing your order for the purchase of products on the Site, supplying other services provided on the Website upon your request, or when your Personal Data is needed to fulfill obligations required by law or regulations. The refusal to provide us and YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP with some of your Personal Data necessary for performing the above purposes may consequently prevent us or YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP from processing your order for the purchase of products sold on the Site or fulfilling obligations required by law and other regulations. Therefore, failing to provide Personal Data may constitute, in some cases, a legitimate and justified reason for not processing your order for the purchase of products sold on the Site or not providing the Site’s services.
Disclosure of further Personal Data to us and YOOX NET-A-PORTER GROUP other than that required for fulfilling legal or contractual obligations and for properly browsing our services with necessary traffic data is optional and does not have any effect on the use of the Site and of its services or on the purchase of products on the Site.
