The information in this Privacy Policy, therefore, relates exclusively to the possible processing of Users' personal data while browsing the Site.

The ICT group is made up of different legal entities: Industrie Cartarie Tronchetti S.p.A., ICT Deutschland GmbH, ICT France S.A.S., Industrie Cartarie Tronchetti Ibérica S.L.U., ICT Poland Sp.z.o.o. and Industrie Cartarie Tronchetti UK Limited.

2. Types of data processed. 
Recruitment Data: where Users apply for a role within the ICT group on the “Application” page of our Site, the information Users provide to us in their CV and any covering letter or notes, and any other information Users provide via the “Application” page of our Site, which may include their name, address, personal email address, date of birth, languages, education and qualifications. 
Download Area Data: where Users wish to access certain financial information about their business via the “Download Area” of our Site, the name of the User’s company, their role within their company, the User’s email address and the User’s password.
Browsing Data: the computer systems and software procedures used to operate this Site acquire, during their normal performance, some personal data whose transmission is implicit in the communication protocols of the Internet. This information is not collected with the intention of associating it with identified data subjects. However, by its nature, it could allow Users to be identified through processing and association with data held by third parties. This category of data includes the IP addresses or domain names of the computers used by the Users who connect to the Site, the URI (Uniform Resource Identifier) addresses of the requested resources, the time of the request, the method used to submit the request to the server, the size of the file obtained in response, the numeric code indicating the status of the response given by the server (e.g. successful, error, etc.), and other parameters relating to the operating system and the IT environment of the User. 
Voluntary Data: any personal data which Users (at their option) explicitly and voluntarily send to us via any page of the Site (e.g. User's name, surname and contact details). 

We also collect, use and share aggregated data such as statistical or demographic data for any purpose (“Aggregated Data”). Aggregated Data could be derived from User personal data but is not considered personal data in law as this data will not directly or indirectly reveal Users’ identities. For example, we may aggregate Users’ Browsing Data to calculate the percentage of Users accessing a specific Site feature. However, if we combine or connect Aggregated Data with User personal data so that it can directly or indirectly identify Users, we treat the combined data as personal data which will be used in accordance with this Privacy Policy.

If Users do not provide us with their personal data or provide personal data in an incomplete or incorrect way, we may not be able to perform the contract we have or are trying to enter into with a User (for example, to provide a User with goods or services). In this case, we may have to cancel a product or service Users have with us but we will notify Users if this is the case at the time.

It is important that the personal data we hold about you is accurate and current. Please keep us informed if your personal data changes during your relationship with us.

3. How data is collected. We use different methods to collect data from and about Users, including through direct interactions (e.g. where Users fill in forms on our Site), automated technologies or interactions (e.g. as Users interact with our Site) and third parties (e.g. referees of Users who have applied for jobs via our Site).

4. How we use data. We will only use your personal data when the law allows us to. Most commonly, we will use your personal data in the following circumstances:
◦ Where we need to perform the contract we are about to enter into or have entered into with you.
◦ Where it is necessary for our legitimate interests (or those of a third party) and your interests and fundamental rights do not override those interests.
◦ Where we need to comply with a legal obligation.

Generally, your consent is not required to process your data since we rely on one of the above lawful bases for processing instead.

5. Purposes of data processing. We have set out below a description of all the ways we plan to use your personal data, and which of the lawful bases we rely on to do so. We have also identified what our legitimate interests are where appropriate. Please note that we may process your personal data for more than one lawful ground depending on the specific purpose for which we are using your data.
