On the Website www.bianchienardi1946.it, there are particular “buttons” (called “social media buttons/widgets”) that depict the icons of social media networks (for example, Facebook, Instagram, etc.). These buttons allow users who are browsing on the sites to interact directly with the social media networks shown there with a simple “click”. In this case, the social media networks acquire data relating to the user’s visit, however the Data Controller will not share any navigation information or user data acquired through their Website with the social media networks accessed via the social media buttons/widgets.

It follows that through our website, we offer you broad personal support also via social media (Facebook, Instagram) and the opportunity to stay in touch with us. Social media services directly capture personal data, for example through your profile created on these social media sites or via so-called social media plugins implemented on third-party websites.

If you send us a request via one of these social media sites, we will forward the request to the appropriate division. The data will be used exclusively to respond to your request and will not be given to third parties.

To contact us via the social media platforms, you will need to subscribe to their services. For this purpose, the collection, registration and processing of personal data will be carried out by the companies in charge of the individual services. As such, we have no authority and hence no responsibility for the type, quantity and processing of such data. This also applies to photographs/videos uploaded to social media sites. Please keep in mind that the rights will eventually be transmitted to the social media services. Details are set out in the Terms of Use and Privacy Policy of the individual provider.

These concern offers from the following US companies:

Facebook Inc. (1601 S. California Ave, Palo Alto, CA 94304, USA)

If you open a page on our website containing one of these plugins, your browser will create a direct link to the servers of the company concerned. The contents of the plugin will be transmitted from these servers directly to your browser and integrated into the website. We thus have no authority and hence no responsibility regarding the amount of data that each company detects through such plugins. In any case, we hereby inform you of what we know.

By integrating the plugins, the individual company receives information related to the fact that you have referred to the relevant page of our Website. If you are registered with one of the aforementioned companies, they may associate the visit with your personal account. If you interact with the plugins, this information is transmitted directly from your browser to the company concerned and subsequently registered. If you do not have an account with the aforementioned companies, there is still the possibility that they will acquire and register your IP address.

Non si può escludere dunque che le summenzionate società rilevino ciascun visitatore del nostro sito Internet sulla base del suo indirizzo IP e dell’URL richiamato, anche nel caso in cui l’utente non abbia cliccato sui plugin e non sia registrato tramite un account presso la società interessata.
