Privacy Policy


This policy, pursuant to Article 13 of European Regulation (EU) 2016/679 (hereinafter the “GDPR”), describes the processing of personal data of those who enter into legal relations or otherwise provide their personal data to the Pleion S.p.A. as customers or in any other capacity (hereinafter “Data Subjects”).

1) Data Controller.
The Data Controller is Pleion S.p.A. (“Data Controller”) with registered office in Cerea Via Venezia 11, postal code 37053, e-mail for contact purposes. The updated list of any Data Processors (those who could be charged with processing or who process the data on behalf of the Data Controller), is available at the registered office indicated above. The Data Controller did not appoint a personal data protection officer (DPO), having assessed that, given the type of processing performed, appointing such a figure is neither mandatory nor beneficial.

2) Processing location and method.
Processing related to the services on the Data Controller's website, currently http//, as well as processing carried out by Pleion S.p.A. in any other capacity under this policy, takes place at the Data Controller's office and is carried out by suitably appointed internal technical staff (Data Processors) pursuant to the GDPR and/or by staff outside the Data Controller's organisation, appointed in writing as Data Handler, pursuant to Article 28 of the GDPR.
All personal data are processed primarily in electronic form but also in paper form. The data will be kept in a form that allows the user to be identified only for as long as necessary to achieve the purposes for which the data were originally collected and, in any case, within the limits of the law. Specific security measures are followed to prevent data loss, illegal or improper use and unauthorised access, in compliance with the GDPR.
The Data Controller has adopted adequate safety measures to protect your data against loss, wrongful use, or alteration. The Data Controller will not transfer your personal data to a third country or an international organisation.
In order to ensure that the personal data is always accurate, up-to-date, complete, and pertinent, Data Subjects are asked to send any changes to the e-mail address indicated above in point 1.

3) Purposes of processing
Personal data processing is for the following purposes:
  • Primarily the correct and complete execution of the contract and other tasks and assignments from the Data Subject, even if only for preparing estimates.
  • To allow users to know about and get more information on the Data Controller’s activities and other initiatives, within the limits and for the sole purpose of delivering services that can be accessed through the company’s website.
  • The Data Controller’s fulfilment of its tax and accounting obligations.
  • The Data Controller’s compliance with obligations in other mandatory regulations (e.g., security).
  • Upon explicit consent of the data subject, for sending - even by e-mail via automated systems - communications containing information relating to the Data Controller and the activities it organizes (e.g., invitations to conferences and events in general, including management of the related participation), as well as updates and/or information of a legal and/or promotional nature, including but not limited to newsletters, presentations, in-depth information and updates on matters relating to the activities carried out by the Data Controller, including profiling the Data Subject for the purpose of directing, improving, or customising the Data Controller's initiatives by taking into account the Data Subject’s specific needs or interests;
4) Legal basis of processing Personal data are processed lawfully in that:
The performance of the activities in letters a) and b) of point 3 above does not require the Data Subject’s consent since these services are performed, in most cases, in response to requests made directly by the data subject pursuant to Art. 6, p. 1, letter B) of the GDPR. Likewise, the processing of Data for purposes sub c) and sub d) does not require the Data Subject’s consent, as it is necessary to fulfil a legal obligation of the Data Controller, pursuant to Article 6 p.1, lett. C) of the GDPR
Processing of personal data for the purposes sub e) requires the Data Subject’s consent pursuant to Article 6, p. 1, lett. a) of the GDPR.

5) Consequences of failure to communicate personal data
Providing personal data for the purposes mentioned above is optional and the only consequence of failing to provide such data is that it will be impossible for the Data Controller to manage and process the Data Subject’s requests or send the above-mentioned communications.

6) Storage of personal data
Personal data will be kept for the amount of time that is strictly necessary to achieve the purposes for which it was collected. Once the purpose for the processing is no longer valid or if the right to oppose processing or revoke consent has been exercised, the Data Controller will still be legally able to keep all or part of the personal data for the purposes permitted by the GDPR (e.g., to enforce a right in court).
Personal data subject processed for the purposes indicated above will be kept for the time needed for tax purposes, which is currently 10 years.
