How your personal data is used

We use personal data collected through the website in order to:

  • manage and improve our business and relationships with customers;
  • respond to requests for information from the user;
  • perform research;

We may associate and analyse your Personal Data in order to:

  • customise the products and services offered;
  • keep Personal Data up to date;
  • better understand customers;

The above activities could include the modification of our communication strategy, the evaluation of the effectiveness of our marketing and customer support service, the performance of market analysis, the identification of products or services that could most interest the user and specific communications with information about such.

The processing of personal data for profiling purposes is based on our legitimate interest in getting to know our customers and proposing products and services that may be of most interest (Article 6, para. 1 f) of the Regulation). As specified in the paragraph “User rights”, you can oppose the processing of personal data for profiling purposes at any time.

We may also collaborate with third parties in order to show targeted advertising content on social media and/or when you browse the Internet or visit other sites, if you have consented to the use of cookies. To find out how to stop receiving marketing communications from us, please view the “User Rights” section below.

Personal data collected is stored in an identifiable format for a period that is reasonably necessary to achieve the purposes for which it was collected. Usually, this means retaining the data until one of the following conditions occurs:

  • the need to provide the requested services;
  • to protect and defend our rights (including in court), the user’s rights or any property thereof;
  • meet marketing needs, unless the user revokes consent to the processing activities;
  • pursue one of our legitimate interests as identified in this disclosure;
  • obligation to keep your personal data in accordance with applicable laws or regulations.

Marketing preferences

By obtaining freely given and optional consent, we will process the data for marketing purposes (sending advertising material, performing market research, commercial communications and customer satisfaction surveys) and periodic updates, such as by sending information related to DMG products and services that are of most interest to the user by post, email, sms and landline/mobile phone, with or without an operator. Granting consent to the processing of personal data and conferring the same for marketing purposes is a freely given and optional choice; if consent is not given, the user will not suffer any detrimental consequences. You can revoke consent to the processing of your data for marketing purposes at any time, free of charge and without any consequence, in the manner indicated in the paragraph “User rights”, even in a selective manner, by informing us that you no longer wish to be contacted through one or more contact methods. To this end, we therefore request that you give your consent to the processing of data for marketing purposes and to the possibility of being contacted by us by selecting the appropriate consent request box on the various pages of the Website, also indicating the specific channels of communication with which you prefer to be contacted.

There are various legal bases that we rely on for the processing of Personal Data.

We will collect and use Personal Data in the following situations:

  • if our use of personal data is in our legitimate interest or in that of the organisation with which we have shared such data, but only after having ensured that the data and rights are adequately protected. For example, we could invoke this legitimate reason if we ourselves use personal data in order to: understand and improve our products, services and/or marketing strategies; perform research activities; manage and improve our relationship with the user and perform technical support activities; to help identify the information, products and services of greatest interest to the user and send or display online advertising material for the products or services in question; ensure that our products and services are delivered and used in compliance with the law and the terms of applicable conditions, and, where necessary, protect or safeguard our rights or property (including in court) or identify, prevent or otherwise handle fraud or security issues;
  • if we deem the use of personal data as necessary in order to fulfil a legal or regulatory obligation to which we are subject;;
  • in a limited number of circumstances, if we deem it necessary in order to protect someone’s safety or vital interests;
  • in certain circumstances, if we deem it necessary for the purposes of public interest, and only once you have given your consent. For example, we will request your consent to collect technical information such as data obtained through the use of cookies and similar technologies, and to use your personal data in order to send you marketing communications via e-mail and SMS. Where the use of personal data is based on consent, the user has the right to revoke such consent at any time. The withdrawal of consent is without prejudice to the legitimacy of processing carried out before such revocation. For further details, please see the “User Rights” section of this Disclosure.
