• to submit offers and bids and other activities aimed at setting up a contractual relationship for the supply of services by the Controller;
• to fulfil pre-contractual, contractual, and fiscal obligations arising from relations in force with the User;
• to fulfil the obligations imposed by law or by an order of the competent Authority; to exercise the Controller’s rights, such as the right of defence in a lawsuit.

b. Only with the User’s prior consent, for the following promotional purposes:

The Controller will process the personal data for the time necessary to carry out the purposes indicated above and, in any case, for not more than 10 years from termination of contractual relations and not more than 2 years from collecting data for marketing purposes.

Once 10 years have passed since the contractual relations have ceased, access to the data will be limited to heads of departments.

Should the Controller have a documented need to store the data for a period longer than 10 years (e.g. if erasure could compromise its legitimate right to defence or in general, to safeguard its company assets), such further storage shall take place, limiting access to said data to the head of the legal department only, in order to guarantee the legitimate exercising of the right of defence of the Controller.

• to receive and respond to any request for a contact, by sending the information requested by the User;
• to collect information necessary for the obligations connected with the pre-contractual phase.

b. In addition, with the User’s explicit consent, their data will be processed to:
• send the User emails, post, sms and/or telephone calls, newsletters, commercial
• communications, and/or advertising materials on products or services offered by the Controller, and measure the degree of satisfaction with the quality of such services;

7. Consent
The provision of data and related processing for the purposes indicated in art. 2.a is necessary in order to guarantee the Controller’s services requested by the User, and for implementing the contract and any pre-contractual obligations.
